Lucas Pouille v Jack Sock

Tennis - Paris Masters - 02 Nov 14:30

Let's start with the negative. Jack Sock (#23) has a long match yesterday against Kyle Edmund in which he received a medical time out at 0-5 down in the final set. It seemed something was wrong with his back. Was it tactical though?

He fought back to win in a 3rd set tie break so how bad could it really have been. Plus he may feel like he's now got nothing to lose having been on the brink of defeat yesterday. Alternatively he might be exhausted and come out with no energy left. It's a risk I'm willing to take. Just last week in Stockholm he had a medical time out in his 1st Round match and went on to make the Quarter Finals.

The stats suggest this is an even contest. Pouille (#25) is 2 places below Sock in the rankings. In the past 12 months on tour Pouille has won 63% of his matches, Sock 65%.

On this surface Sock has the slightly better record winning 63% of his matches compared to Pouille at 62%.

Here in Paris Sock made the Quarter Finals last season whilst Pouille has yet to make it past the 3rd Round. Pouille has been in good form and won the title in Vienna last week but the draw was fairly kind. I don't think he would have had that success had he'd played in Basel where Sock made the Quarter Finals in a much stronger field.

Taking all the factors into account I priced Sock at around 2.5. However without any idea how fit Sock is I'm not willing to increase stakes which I would normally do with odds so far off my estimate. So I'll stick to £10 for this one and cross my fingers the American was faking it yesterday.
