Daily Sports Betting Preview 01/07/2022 – Daniil Medvedev, Man City, Jon Rahm Odds

  • Daniil Medvedev is a 4.0-game favorite over Felix Auger-Aliassime in the ATP Cup.
  • Manchester City has -115 odds to cover the 2, 2.5-goal spread against Swindon Town.
  • Jon Rahm has +330 odds to be the leader at the end of the second round of the Sentry Tournament Of Champions.

SYDNEY, Australia – Those looking to start of the weekend on a strong note for betting should take a look in a few specific areas on Friday across the ATP, FA Cup and PGA Tour.

ATP Cup Odds: Daniil Medvedev Vs. Felix Auger-Aliassime

Daniil Medvedev, the current favorite to win the Australian Open, will be playing Felix Auger-Aliassime in the ATP Cup on Friday. These two could very well be in line to meet one another late in the grand slam in a few weeks, but online sportsbooks are calling this meeting in favor of Medvedev.

ATP Cup Semifinal Odds

  • Felix Auger-Aliassime +4.0 -115
  • Daniil Medvedev -4.0 -105

As two of the top-ranked players in the world the match should be highly competitive, but Medvedev will likely prove too strong. While Auger-Aliassime’s 84% win rate on serve and 21% win rate on return are impressive, they don’t quite compare to Medvedev’s 87% win rate on serve and 31% win rate on return.

FA Cup Odds: Manchester City Vs. Swindon Town

Manchester City and Swindon Town are expected to make up an extremely lopsided matchup in the FA Cup. Those betting on soccer will find Man City favored to cover the large spread.

Manchester City Vs. Swindon Town Spread Odds

  • Swindon Town +2, +2.5 -105
  • Manchester City -2, -2.5 -115

Truthfully, it’s very easy to see Man City winning by three or more goals. It’s the top-seeded Premier League team against the fifth-ranked team in the EFL League Two. Swindon Town has a +8 goal differential through 22 games in the lesser league while Man City’s +40 goal differential through 21 games in what’s arguably the top league in the world. If they want to, they’ll cover this spread with ease.

PGA Tour Odds: Second Round Leader

Jon Rahm finished the first round of the Sentry Tournament Of Champions tied for second and just one shot off of the lead. Golf betting sites are favoring Rahm to take the lead in the second round and his odds to do so carry value.

Sentry Tournament Of Champions 2nd Round Leader Odds

  • Jon Rahm +330
  • Cameron Smith +350
  • Patrick Cantlay +350
  • Daniel Berger +650
  • Sungjae Im +1200
  • Collin Morikawa +1400

Rahm finished last season as one of the five best second-round scorers on the PGA Tour. He ranks above everybody else around him on the odds board and on the tournament leaderboard showing he is very well deserving of being the favorite. Some could even argue he should have shorter odds to make up one shot.
