Wimbledon Day 3 preview and advantages
We went 2-0 with our Day 2 selections to improve to 4-0, up 3.24 units to date.
Ekaterina Makarova +225 vs. Angelique Kerber -300
The shame of this match is that both these 24-year-olds boast a hotness factor and we'll have to see one of them get ousted. We really hate seeing the good ones go early.
The two met last week when Kerber won 6-2, 6-4 on grass at Eastbourne so we've already had a preview. Kerber is a player on the rise at 8th in the world and has a couple of titles to her credit this year. She has a favorable draw and could be worth a few bucks this tourney.
Jeremy Chardy -110 vs. Juan Monaco -125
Monaco leads the head-to-head 3-1, including an easy win on clay in Chile early in the season.
This one could go either way but there is some value with the underdog. Chardy is the bigger server and he knows how to win on grass. He was the junior Wimbledon champ in 2005 for whatever that's worth.
On the other hand, Monaco is higher ranked and more consistent. He is really a dirtballer though and this is actually his first time past the first round at Wimbledon.
