Join us while we go through the most valuable lines for this Monday's action at the Miami Open Day 6. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixtures below and lists the best available odds from green-listed bookmakers.

Alexander Zverev vs. David Ferrer

Alexander Zverev had to dig deep on his opening match at the Miami Open with a 6-4, 1-6, 7-6 win over Daniil Medvedev. The victory against the Russian comes in Alexander's 200th tour-level match with the 20-year-old winning 63.00% of the matches played on the ATP World Tour throughout his career. The No. 5 loves the big stage with an outstanding 70.37% winning record over the last 12 months in ATP Masters 1000 events.

The 2013 runner-up Ferrer couldn't have asked for a better debut at the 2018 Miami Open with an impressive 6-2, 6-2 victory against Evgeny Donskoy. The former world No. 3 Ferrer holds a 33-13 record in this event since 2005. The slow court conditions in Key Biscayne are perfect for Ferrer's aggressive return to serve with the 35-year-old winning 52.40% of the points played on Donskoy's serve in the previous round.

This will be the fourth official meeting between these two players with Ferrer leading 2-1. Nevertheless, Zverev emerged victorious from their most recent encounter at the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam earlier this season.

The bookmakers are well aware of Alexander’s recent victory with the German available at 13/20 at Pinnacle while 5Dimes offers 3/2 for Ferrer’s victory. Despite David’s undeniable quality, it won’t be easy for the Spaniard to overcome such a powerful player as Zverev. With his in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the No. 4 seed to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this match.

Jelena Ostapenko vs. Petra Kvitova

The 2017 French Open champion Ostapenko continues to impress in Miami. Known as one of the most aggressive players on the WTA Tour, Ostapenko is rediscovering top form in this event after a slow start to 2018. Adding to this, the world No. 5 claimed back-to-back wins for the first time since the Australian Open. The Latvian reaches this stage of the competition after a 6-2, 7-6 win over Beatriz Haddad Maia.

Kvitova came back from one set down to defeat Sofia Kenin and book a place in the fourth round of the Miami Open for the second time in her career. Despite her unquestionable talent, the hot and humid conditions in Key Biscayne are far from ideal for Kvitova. In addition to her poor 57.89% career record at the Miami Open, the two-time Wimbledon champion allowed her opponents to win 41.40% of her service games on this event.

These two players will face each other for the sixth time in their careers with Kvitova winning three of the previous five. The bookmakers expect a straightforward win from Petra with the No. 9 seed as the clear favourite to win this match at 9/25 at BetVictor. Even though we agree with those odds, it’s impossible to trust the Czech on this event. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of the tremendous value on Jelena’s tennis betting odds to win this match at 62/25 at 5Dimes.
