There’s a big class difference between the boys, that’s obvious. However, Brody has a good playing practice, the Brit has already played three matches here in Qatar: he qualified and eliminated Ukrainian Krutych in the main draw. Overall, Brody is on an 8-win streak, which is something to consider as well. Medvedev played indoors last week and in the Netherlands. Now we have to play properly on the open court, Daniel will need time to adapt. There is no doubt that Medvedev will go to the next round, as mentioned above, the class difference between the guys is huge. But we also doubt that Daniel will crush his opponent in the upcoming match. We offer the following match betting options:

The main pick is Brody’s win with a handicap (6.5) of 1.65
