Nadal 1.01 Bagnis 26.00 See the Latest Odds
The French Open legend, Rafael Nadal, will be in action tomorrow as the Spaniard takes on 26 year old Argentine Facundo Bagnis. Both players won their opening games with ease and will be fresh and raring to go in what should be a great chance for the fans to see Rafa play in his best grand slam.
Facundo Bagnis won his first game in straight set in what was an easy win for the doubles player. The singles format is not his best game and although he did win his first game it is hard to see him getting anything other than a loss here. Bagnis is a good player but Nadal is simple too good and that is nothing against the Argentine. I think we can expect Nadal to win in straight sets and move on to the next round with ease.

As far as betting is concerned, I think betting on Nadal to win is not a good bet since we are getting a price that is so short it is essentially better off putting your money in a bank. I think betting on Nadal to win in straight sets on the other hand is not a bad option since it is a very safe bet, yet we are getting a price where there is some sort of incentive. I think this bet is worth it but not as a value bet but rather as an bankroll booster so that is something that you can look into.
Overall I think this game will be one where Nadal will win but I think there will be a fight from the Argentine. Don’t expect 6-1 or 6-0 sets since Facundo Bagnis is a pretty good player and I expect him to fight hard and take games to 6-3 or 6-4. That being said only a fool will bet against Nadal winning 3-0 so that is my prediction for this game.
