Our Wawrinka vs Dimitrov 2019 Montreal ATP Masters Betting Tip

I’ve mentioned many times before how strange player Grigor Dimitrov is, and the former World No. 3 is certainly capable of beating Wawrinka on a hard court. However, the Bulgarian is playing in a terrible form, so I think Stan the Man should win this clash.

If you are not satisfied with 1/2 odds on Wawrinka with BetVictor, I suggest you take the over on the total games at 4/5 odds with Betway. Both players should be highly motivated which promises a tight match that could easily see at least a tiebreak or three sets in the total.
