Coral’s bet of the day
- Both Edmund and Daniel saw off opening opponents in straight sets
- Brit has already helped his nation to 2015 Davis Cup triumph
- Edmund also almost single handedly defeated Serbia in same event
Edmund is 11/4 to beat Daniel 2-1
Great Britain’s Kyle Edmund goes up against Taro Daniel of Japan in the second round of the Olympics men’s tennis draw on Tuesday afternoon at roughly 15:00 BST, and his quarter has now opened up following Novak Djokovic’s shock early exit.
It is from this match that Coral that Coral have picked our next bet of the day, with tasty odds of 11/4 available for Edmund to win 2-1, to then face one of Djokovic’s conqueror Juan Martin del Potro or Joao Sousa.
Read on to find out just why you should take a punt on this price…
Edmund performs best for his nation
Rapidly rising star Edmund came through his opening round test against Australian Jordan Thompson with relative ease 6-4 6-2, while Daniel also won his tie in straight sets over USA’s Jack Sock.
With both players in form, it suggests that their duel could go the distance, and it will take a while for them both to get used to one another having never met before.
Edmund should just have the edge, though, as he comes into this tournament on the back of almost single handedly helping Great Britain defeat Serbia in the 2016 Davis Cup quarters.
The South African-born 21-year-old certainly seems to thrive when playing as part of a team, as he was also part of the side that claimed the same competition the year before. Edmund and Andy Murray where the chosen singles players in the final victory over Belgium.
So, what are you waiting for punters? Back this brilliant bet of 11/4 for Edmund to triumph 2-1 now, for a chance to win big!
