Gilles Simon (53/35) Richard Gasquet (8/13) See the Latest Odds
The tennis season is China is well underway as the tournament in Shanghai is heating up as Richard Gasquet takes on Gilles Simon in the round of 16. Both these players from France have a ton of experience and as a result I am expecting a really solid and entertaining game of Tennis.
Gilles Simon had a big win in his previous game as he took on Belgian superstar David Goffin. That was a big win for the 32 year old player as it will give him confidence and it suggests once again that he can compete with the best players in the world. This game is against a player that is probably not as good as David Goffin but that is no reason to suggest he will not put up a fight.

Gasquet has come back from one set down, two games in a row now and it is looking like the Frenchman still has the high level of fitness in him. As far as talent is concerned, he is probably as good as Gilles Simon is the respective moment in both these players careers, but he is probably fitter. That being said, Gilles Simon is in much better form and that is also something to take into consideration.
As far as winning is concerned, I think that this game in a coin-flip. As a result, the value in this game is betting on the underdog which is Gilles Simon who has a price of way over 1/1. As a result I think this is the best bet we can make for this game of tennis. This might also be a long game since the two players are very evenly matched so I also like the over 2.5 sets bet.
