Zverev -4.5 games (-110)
Under 20.5 games (+100)...i realize these plays may not be very popular given the run of Shapo and his new sidekick Gretzky...but we are not dealing with Mannarino this time...Zverev is literally the best player on tour at this exact moment...no questions asked...this is his summer season to shine, and i wouldnt be surprised at all if he beats Roger on Sunday...and maybe again in the USOpen finals next month!!!
Shapo must be on cloud nine, and the city is buzzing here more than when Milos made Wimby finals and thats saying alot! Shapo will find it very hard to hold serve today...last 2 matches his break point save % has been ridiculously good, but Zverev has one of the best returns in the game now - look how he took apart Anderson last night and the week before, when no one else could smell Andersons serve. Plus Shapo return game is still very poor - where will he have a chance to make this match close if he cant break and will have trouble holding?
I see this one going 62 62 and itll be over before the crowd ever had a chance to roar behind one of Shapos now famous double arm pumps to the sky.

Thank you for insight Packersbackers. Appreciate your analysis because it's usually spot on. I hate to be that guy but you said the exact same thing last round... Although Zverev is the superior player 6-2, 6-2 most likely won't happen and I think the current odds more than represent the chance of the Canadian wonder pulling off the upset. GL my man!!

Packers there is .0001% chance Zevrev could beat Fed at the US open 



FED will have to be hurt or fix the match lol 


Seriously this KID will not sniff a US OPEN FINAL WIN OVER FED not in this lifetime

I also believe Shapo over 8.5 games is a money bet. GL

Robby i realize these plays will likely be in the minority of most peoples opinions...if im wrong im wrong...like versus Manna i truly expected that classic let down spot...and had it not been for mother nature and the rain delay Shapo was indeed toast...0-4 to start the match in windy conditions he had no shot...but after the rain the wind was gone and he had favorable court conditions to make the epic comeback...plus Mannas butt cheeks got super tight you couldve cracked pistachios in there with ease.
Zverev is as cocky and arrogant as it gets right now, and i truly think that quality of his will be a contributing factor which he will use to silence the crowd.

Look for an atp tour record of fist pumps to be set in this matchup...over 100.5 (-138) , under 100.5 (+110)

Zberev will most likely win 1st set but Shapovalov should come back win 2nd set and it will be close 3rd set taking Shapovalov+4.5 imo will be the better play since home crowd will give this Canadian kid the extra lift needed for this bet.

This might be my favorite match of all time history. I'd just ruin it by betting it. Had mannarino last match and regretted rooting against the kid. So I'm passing here and enjoying the show.

Though my lean would be zverev in straights.

Best of luck pack

why should shapo come back to win the second set? bc that's what he did previous two matches? terrible logic. completely different opponent. zverev routines him today.

Most people, including myself, thought Nadal would steamroll Shapo... Life is unpredictable

I agree with zverev tonight but not even close to being best guy on tour right now...  a 36 year old named fed is 32 2 this year and is having a remarkable 2017 being best and will be world number 1 by Open.  Winning a 500 at Washington nor making it this far here is nothing special....the field is not great with all injuries.

Zverev needs to break twice to cover the spread and once for the unders... Given that he holds all his service games. 

Has Denis got more fight left in him...

Shapo is making a habit of DF at bad times.
