Bet Of The Day August 7 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Raonic has played just four matches in two years
  • Raonic hasn’t played a hardcourt match since July 2021
  • Raonic’s ranking has slipped to No. 546
  • Tiafoe beat Raonic in Toronto 2018, winning 6-1 in the third set
  • Tiafoe has won seven of his last 10 hardcourt matches

We’re off to the Toronto Masters for today’s best bet as Frances Tiafoe takes on Canada’s own Milos Raonic in the opening round.

Raonic was a consistent top 10 player for years, but the big-serving Canadian has been battling various injury problems over the last few seasons and comes into this tournament ranked No. 546 in the world.

Indeed, Raonic has played just four matches in the last two years, while this will be his first hardcourt outing since July 2021.

With a lack of match fitness, it’s tough to see Raonic getting over the top of Tiafoe, even with the home crowd support behind him.

Tiafoe has established himself as a top 10 player this season and should be able to handle this occasion. As such, we’ll be backing the American to cover a small -1.5 line.

Raonic’s serve will always keep him from being blown away, but even two tiebreak wins for Tiafoe would cover this line.

Tiafoe actually beat Raonic in Toronto all the way back in 2018, storming away to prevail 6-1 in the decider, covering a games line of -4.

Tiafoe is a far superior player these days and Raonic has declined considerably due to injury, so there’s nothing to suggest a change of result here.

With seven wins from his last 10 hardcourt matches, it would be a huge surprise if Tiafoe didn’t emerge victorious in this clash.
