An exciting day is expected in Indian Wells with the BNP Paribas Open semi-finals taking place this Saturday. Bookmakers Review breaks down the fixture below and lists the best available odds from green listed bookmakers.
Sock vs. Federer
From the two matches scheduled for this Saturday in Indian Wells, the contest between Jack Sock and Roger Federer clearly deserves a closer look.
Playing in Indian Wells brings great memories to Roger Federer with the four-time champion holding a remarkable 57 – 12 career record on this event. After defeating Rafael Nadal earlier this year in the Australian Open Final, the Swiss featured another great win over the Spaniard in the 4th round. With 26 winners and only 17 unforced errors, Nadal couldn’t find an answer to Federer’s brilliant performance.
Jack Sock continues his dream run at the BNP Paribas Open. As we mentioned in our previous analysis, the high bouncing conditions in the Californian desert are perfect for his heavy topspin. Looking now at Jack’s campaign on this event, the American reaches this stage of the competition after a three-set victory over the world no.5 – Kei Nishikori.
Despite Sock’s high-quality performance in the previous round, Federer is a completely different challenge. Due to Roger’s outstanding results this season, he’s the undeniable favourite to win this match at 31/100 at Pinnacle while Jack is available at 3/1 at Bet365. Even though Sock might cover his +4.5 game handicap, we still expect straight sets win from Federer with his -1.5 Set Handicap at 97/100 at Pinnacle.
