Bet Of The Day June 19 – read on below for our reasoning behind today’s best bet.

Key Points

  • Hurkacz beat Medvedev in their only previous grass meeting at Wimbledon 2021
  • Hurkacz beat Medvedev 7-6 6-3 in their last clash at Miami 2022
  • Hurkacz has won nine of his last 11 matches on grass
  • Hurkacz is a perfect 4-0 in ATP finals throughout his career
  • Medvedev is 0-2 in finals in 2022
  • Medvedev lost his last grass final 6-4 6-1 to Tim Van Rijthoven (ranked outside top 200 at the time)

We’re off to the ATP Halle final in Germany for today’s best bet as Hubert Hurkacz targets the upset of World No. 1 Daniil Medvedev.

Medvedev is the strong $1.40 favourite, but this title match should be much closer than what those odds suggest and it’s certainly worth taking the value on offer with Hurkacz here.

The head-to-head between the pair is locked at 2-2, but Hurkacz’s two victories are significant. The Polish player conquered Medvedev in their only previous meeting on grass at Wimbledon last year and also won their last encounter in straight sets at Miami earlier this season.

Hurkacz has also defeated much better players this week in Halle, starting his campaign with a tight three-set triumph over the big-serving Maxime Cressy before taking out defending champion Ugo Humbert, top 10 star Felix Auger-Aliassime and grass court specialist Nick Kyrgios.

The World No. 12 showed great composure to recover from a set down to edge out Kyrgios, winning the next two sets in tiebreaks.

Hurkacz has demonstrated his ability to play well under pressure throughout his career and is a perfect 4-0 in ATP Finals – another reason to back him with confidence here.

Medvedev is still yet to win a title in 2022 and was blown off the court by a player ranked outside the top 200 when he made the final in s-Hertogenbosch last week.

The World No. 1 has yet to be really tested this week in Halle and was somewhat fortunate to survive the challenge of Oscar Otte in the semi-finals, with the German failing to serve out the first set before collapsing.

As mentioned, Medvedev is obviously the better player, but the gap between the pair isn’t as wide as the odds suggest and Hurkacz is also arguably the more accomplished grass player having made the Wimbledon semi-finals.

This is close to a 50-50 contest so it makes sense to back Hurkacz at $3.00 with bet365.
