Otte vs Alcaraz: prediction for the Wimbledon match
Oscar Otte has so far done well during the grass-court part of the tour; he delivered successful performances in Stuttgart and Halle, where he defeated such players as Denis Shapovalov, Nikoloz Basilashvili, and Karen Khachanov. At the current Major, the German athlete prevailed over Peter Gojowczyk (6-1, 6-2, 6-1) and Chris Harrison, who withdrew from the second-round match due to a leg injury.
Alcaraz Garfia started his Wimbledon 2022 campaign with an extremely difficult battle against Jan-Lennard Struff. The young Spaniard needed five sets to overcome Struff (4-6, 7-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3). In the second match, Alcaraz recorded a more confident victory over Tallon Griekspoor (6-4, 7-6, 6-3). Alcaraz is having a great season and has already won four trophies - in Rio, Miami, Barcelona, and Madrid.
Otte played 3 tie-breaks in his last 5 matches.
In Alcaraz's last 5 matches, more than 9 games were played in the first set.
Otte is in excellent form and has recently defeated top players on grass courts. Do not underestimate the German athlete - he definitely can create problems for the favorite. We will be backing Otte in this pair.
Our prediction - handicap (+5) to Otte
Alcaraz shows his best tennis on clay courts, while his grass-court performances haven't been particularly impressive. Otte can take advantage of the Spaniard's mistakes. Take the over.
Second bet - total over 37 games
