Australian Open – Day Seven: Best Odds & Tips – CODE Bet
AUSTRALIAN OPEN – DAY 7 – SUNDAY 22 JANUARY SELECTION
As we move into the fourth round of the Australian Open, the matchups are as close as ever and the betting value continues to grow.
A number of players ranked in the top 20 in the world headlined the best games of Day 7.
STEFANOS TSITSIPAS: $1.44
JANNIK SÜNDER: $2.74
Both Tsitsipas and Sinner are part of the new wave of stars coming through the men’s tour and this will be an exciting encounter.
The Greek has gone through the first three rounds without dropping a set and now that Medvedev is out it looks like the best chance to challenge Djokovic for the title.
Sinner struggled with letting his emotions get the better of him at times in his last match, but still managed it in five sets.
Tsitsipas has beaten Sinner in four of the five games they’ve played in, including a straight set win here last year: his strength in beating crosscourt winners and his amazing slice are looking too good again.
THE CHOICE: Stefanos Tsitsipas -3.5 games: $1.77

VICTORIA AZARENKA: $1.15
LIN ZHU: $5.30
A two-time Australian Open winner, Azarenka is finally back to her best tennis after a string of injuries, but Zhu is a practical player and the odds shouldn’t be that far apart.
Zhu, who is ranked No. 87 in the world, caused a big upset in her last match when she defeated 6th seed Maria Sakkari, showing her shooting power is among the best in the world.
She looks like someone who can shoot up the rankings this season and with her sky-high confidence can make this match extremely close.
Azarenka’s experience and all-around ability should suffice here, but it’ll be a close encounter, which is why the line looks like a solid bet.
THE CHOICE: Lin Zhu +5.5: $2.05
HUBERT HURKACZ: $2.36
SEBASTIAN KORDA: $1.57
Hurkacz hasn’t had the easiest of runs, his last two games have been five setters and seems to lose focus at times, while Korda has lost just one set in the first three rounds.
Korda also provided one of the biggest upsets of the men’s draw, beating last year’s runner-up Daniil Medvedev in straight sets.
His power and ability to use the corners of the court lets his opponent run wild and is frustrating to play against.
Hurkacz will be sore after some long games, having lost in straight sets to the American in their last meeting.
THE CHOICE: Sebastian Korda H2H: $1.57
