September 2: US Open- Ajla Tomljanović vs Serena Williams
The third round of the US Open begins on Friday and Serena Williams is looking to extend her career one more match with a win against Ajla Tomljanovi.
Williams is a -160 favorite to win the match with Tomljanovi coming in as a +130 underdog.
Serena’s win in the second round was a great story, but we think her time is up. She didn’t look very impressive in Cincinnati a couple weeks ago. And Tomljanovi proved to be a tough out after beating Evgeniya Rodina in three sets. She’s now ranked No. 46 in the world.
It’s been a good run, but we think this is where Williams’ time at the US Open ends.
Rebel’s Pick: Ajla Tomljanovi ML (+130) @ 1U
September 3: Spain- La Liga- Sevilla vs Barcelona
We’re heading back to soccer as Sevilla takes on Barcelona.
This time, we’re taking Barcelona to win the first half at +140.
They’ve been playing good soccer (or football) and the team appears to have found its form. That’s a positive sign.
Another positive is that Sevilla has a mid-week match against Man City coming up, so they most likely won’t be fielding their strongest team. That leaves Barcelona with a great opportunity to collect some points against weaker competition.
We’ll take that bet all day.
Rebel’s Pick: Barcelona to win 1st half (+140) @ 1U
