Sebastian Korda will face Brandon Nakashima for the first time on Friday in Milan. Though they’re basically the same age, and from the same country, they’ve never played before—even in juniors—which is hard to fathom.

If your book offers an over/under game total, playing the over total up to 23.5 games is definitely the safest bet. You might have to make this bet live, as pre-match markets can’t seem to cough it up.

It appears most sportsbooks are hesitant to offer a full slate of lines for this match, which makes perfect sense. With a scoring format used just once per year, there’s no sense in offering sharp tennis bettors a completely level playing field.

Korda and Nakashima’s backhands are already among the world’s best shots. But on this lightning-quick indoor hardcourt, Korda’s willingness to take his forehand on the rise should pay dividends as the match develops.

The best bet available on FanDuel Sportsbook is Korda to win by -1.5 total sets at +110.
