Djokovic v Mayer ATP Montreal Betting Guide

The ATP Montreal tournament takes place this week and Novak Djokovic will be in action for the first time since his defeat to Andy Murray at Wimbledon in July.

Djokovic takes on Florian Mayer in his first encounter and it is a match that the world number one should be winning comfortably. When looking at the latest odds, you can see that the Serbian is a 1/20 shot with Coral to come out on top.

Although this should be an easy match for Djokovic, it will be interesting to see how he plays after such a disappointing performance at SW 19 – where he lost to Andy Murray in straight sets and looked far from at his best.

One thing you would say about the Australian Open Champion is that he has an incredible attitude and a couple of weeks away from the game after Wimbledon might have just done him the world of good.

You would expect him to bounce back and we could see a big performance from Djokovic in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

This is a tournament he will want to be winning as the US Open isn’t too far away and momentum is key when coming into a Grand Slam.

As for Mayer, few can argue he is a talented player, but bets aren’t likely to be too popular on him winning as he is being offered at 14/1 with BetVictor.

Playing Djokovic is never an easy thing to do, especially after he suffered such a disappointing defeat in his most recent match. Some might think that makes it easier to play the Serbian here, but it is tough to make a case for the underdog in this one.

What the German will want to do is start quickly and maybe even take the first set. If he does that, then perhaps he has a chance of coming out on top here.

Betting on the correct score will be a popular way to try and take some money off the bookies and it is no surprise to see that a straight sets win for Djokovic is the most likely result. At the moment, you can get odds of 1/6 with Ladbrokes.

If you think Mayer is going to take this one, you can get great value on him as he has odds of 25/1 with bet365 to win 2-1.

For us though, a bet on the first set score is the way to go and backing Djokovic to win it 6-1 gives you odds of 7/1 with BWIN, which might just be the best value of the match.

It all gets underway from 1am on Wednesday.
