Murray to beat Ferrer 3-1 at 5/2
In Coral’s bet of the day for Tuesday, patriotic punters can take advantage of fantastic 5/2 odds for Andy Murray to beat David Ferrer 3-1 in the duo’s quarter-final clash at the 2016 Australian Open.
Read on to find out why this price is too tempting not to take…
Both players are experienced stars on tour, and it is no surprise that they have battled out 18 official singles matches in the past, with the Scot winning 12 of them.
The pair, meanwhile, have also met in four Grand Slams, with all of the going to four sets – three of which went in Murray’s favour.
Past meetings back this bet
Their only Australian Open tussle came in the 2011 semis, which Britain’s number one claimed 4-6 7-6 6-1 7-6 and a repeat of that outcome certainly looks likely.
Spaniard Ferrer has looked in top form this tournament so far, winning all four of his matches to date in straight sets. However, at 33 years of age and on a losing run of five against Murray, he is highly likely to be eliminated at the hands of the in-form Scot.
Current world number two Murray is in full confidence ever since helping Great Britain to their first Davis Cup triumph since 1936 late last year, and has smashed through Alexander Zverev, Sam Groth, Joao Sousa and Bernard Tomic with relative ease. Although, Sousa did take him to four sets too.
So, what are you waiting for punters? Take this fabulous 5/2 bet now for Murray to see off Spaniard Ferrer 3-1.
