If you haven’t already checked out my ATP Finals Betting Preview, I’d strongly suggest doing that before diving into the action on Sunday. I went a little into the first matchup in the event, which features Stefanos Tsitsipas vs. Jannik Sinner. But I’ll go into it in more detail here, as taking Tsitsipas to win a set—and sprinkling a little on the moneyline—is my favorite bet of the day.
Sinner will be playing at home in this tournament, so he’ll have a little extra adrenaline with the crowd cheering him on. But that also means the youngster will be under a lot of pressure. I know Sinner has won two 1000-level events this year, and he has done a good job of shifting the narrative and showing the world he can win big matches. But he is still unproven in Grand Slams, and this is probably the closest thing to one. This event features the top players in the world, so every match he plays will be one in which he’ll need to dig deep and find something extra. I still question whether he has it in him to do that.
