Karen Khachanov vs Roberto Bautista Agut 2019 Wimbledon Betting Tip
After eliminating Feliciano Lopez in the second round, the 10th seed Karen Khachanov will meet another Spaniard in the round of 32, and the 23rd seed Roberto Bautista Agut could be a more difficult rival to beat than Lopez.
Karen Khachanov vs Roberto Bautista Agut
- 2019 Wimbledon Championships (Outdoor/Grass)
- All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, London, UK
- Friday 5th July
Karen Khachanov News & Form
The 23-year old Russian dropped a set in each of his first two matches at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships. Khachanov surprisingly had some problems to beat the World No. 125 Soon-Woo Kwon in the opener, but he put on a strong performance against Feliciano Lopez on Wednesday. Karen had 20 winners and ten unforced errors fewer than Lopez, but he played at the highest level in decisive moments to escape with a victory.
Khachanov has an 18-15 record in 2019, still searching for his first title of the season. He has a 14-6 record on the grass court in a career, while Khachanov is 7-3 at Wimbledon where he reached the round of 16 last year.
Roberto Bautista Agut News & Form
The 31-year old Spaniard cruised through the first two rounds. Bautista Agut defeated the World No. 121 Peter Gojowczyk in straight sets 6-3 6-2 6-3 in the first round, while he easily won the first two sets against Steve Darcis on Wednesday before the World No. 221 had to withdraw.
Roberto came to London as the World No. 22 and with a 23-11 record in 2019, winning a title in Doha on a hard court back in January. He played well in Halle, losing to Roger Federer in three sets in the quarterfinal. Bautista Agut made it to the round of 16 at Wimbledon on two occasions in 2015 and 2017, while he has a 28-12 record on grass in his career.
Khachanov vs Bautista Agut Head to Head
This will be the sixth meeting between Karen Khachanov and Roberto Bautista Agut, and the Spaniard has been victorious three times so far. They meet twice this season, and Bautista Agut defeated Khachanov in straight sets at Australian Open, while the Russian bounced back in Rome with a three-set victory. Also, Bautista Agut defeated Khachanov in three sets in their only meeting on the grass court in Halle.
Khachanov vs Bautista Agut Betting Odds and Predictions
The Spaniard is listed as a slight favourite to qualify for the next round, and you can pick him at 4/6 with BetVictor or Betway, while Khachanov is a 6/5 underdog on the same platforms.
The bookmakers expect to see a great battle with four or five sets in the total. The line on the total games has been set at 42.5 with Betway with the over at 10/11 and the under at 4/5. William Hill offers a 43.5-game line with both over and under at 17/20 odds.
Khachanov vs Bautista Agut Betting Tip
I would be surprised if someone wins in straight sets here, so taking the over 3.5 sets at 2/5 odds with William Hill seems like a sure shot. However, if you want greater wages, consider betting on the over 42.5 games at 10/11 with Betway. This match will be a joy to watch, but picking the winner is a really tricky job.
