Evans is 2/1 to beat Becker 2-0
Britain’s Dan Evans takes to the Washington DC courts in the men’s 2016 Citi Open on Monday evening, as he goes up against veteran German Benjamin Becker in the opening round.
It is from this match that Coral have picked out our bet of the day, with tasty 2/1 odds available on the Englishman winning in straight sets.
Read on to find out why this price is too good not to take…
British tennis is on somewhat of a high right now, after Andy Murray claimed a second Wimbledon crown by beating Milos Raonic in the final jut over a week ago. While, rising star Kyle Edmund led team GB to a quarter-final triumph in the Davis Cup at the weekend.
Evans was absent from the tie with Serbia, but is now fully fit and raring to go as he aims to rise up the ATP singles rankings.
Evans can carry on British success
At number 73 in the world, the Birmingham-born 26-year-old is 23 places above his upcoming opponent Becker, and is the odds-on favourite to come through this clash.
The duo have actually faced each other once before, which was earlier this year on this same hard court surface in a Dallas Challenger.
Evans came through with ease to reach the semi-finals, after a 6-1 6-4 scoreline, and eventually made it to the final, where he lost out to English compatriot Edmund.
So, what are you waiting for tennis punters? Back this brilliant 2/1 bet for Evans to beat Becker in straight sets, for a fantastic chance to see your more grow!
