John Millman vs Novak Djokovic - Free Betting Tips

John Millman
Marin Cilic

John Millman has caused the biggest upset at the U.S. Open thus far, eliminating Roger Federer. The Swiss supremo was overcome by heat and humidity, and his entire game unravelled as a result. Millman, however, will have a much more trying task against a resurgent Novak Djokovic; the Serbian player is in excellent form, and if he plays his A-game once again, he’ll be very difficult to beat.

John Millman has achieved what was seemingly impossible, but bookmakers don’t seem to think he’ll repeat it: the bookmakers are heavily favouring Djokovic. We only get odds of 1/2 on Novak Djokovic to win in straight sets, hammering home the Serbians clear advantage. To enjoy better odds of 2/1, one would have to trust the Djokovic to cover the massive -10 games spread. There’s a few interesting offers surrounding this match too; for example, on the off chance that Millman prevails prevails by exactly 10 games, stakes will be returned to punters who chose to place their bets at 888sport. But overall, the John Millman vs Novak Djokovic best odds are offered to those who bet on the first set score, and we like the look of Djokovic to win after a tiebreak, which is priced at 8/1 by Coral.

John Millman vs Novak Djokovic Betting Tips: Form Guide

Millman: The Unexpected Quarter Finalist

In nine out of 10 matches Roger Federer would have crushed John Millman in a Grand Slam tournament, but the perfect storm was brewing and the Swiss was defeated as much by the hot and humid weather as his opponent. Federer played one of his worst matches ever at the US Open and, frankly, one of his worst matches at any Grand Slam event ever. John Millman was simply the right man at the right place to take advantage of his unexpected meltdown. In order to reach the semifinals, he will have to do it again and this time against Novak Djokovic — a tougher challenge altogether.

Last night, the Australian felt like free rolling because he had nothing to lose. Nobody expected him to win a match against Roger Federer at this stage of the competition, so he threw everything at the match, and managed to claim a shock win. In the wake of that unexpected victory, some are counting on him to at least deliver a convincing performance against Djokovic — but this seems unlikely. Under pressure, he is more likely to crumble, especially against such a tough opponent. John Millman vs Novak Djokovic match previews highlight the fact that prior being the beneficiary of Federer’s near-literal meltdown, Millman had only really succeeded against average opponents — and no one has ever called Novak Djokovic average, so expect Millman to be seriously tested as a result.

Novak Djokovic Rides The Longest Winning Streak In 2018

A couple of years ago, 10 games winning streaks were common for Novak Djokovic. He used to dominate the ATP tour with an iron fist, but his reign has been heavily challenged in recent years, as he seemed to lose his mojo. However, the Serbian player is now once again in form, and his results speak for themselves. At the beginning of summer, he rode a nine-game winning streak, but he’s back this proved a temporary setback, and he’s gone on to claim the full 10-game streak after a predictable victory over Sousa.

Novak Djokovic has had a good tournament thus far, dropping just one set in the first and another in the second matches he’s played. Since then, he’s played against tougher opponents, but raised his game and ultimately emerged victory. John Millman isn’t even the toughest opponent he faces at the Grand Slam or the highest ranked, nor is he the highest ranked — in fact, the only thing that makes him stand out from the crowd is the fact that he defeated Roger Federer. Some players might be impressed by this achievement, but not Djokovic. As a result, our John Millman vs Novak Djokovic betting tips for today suggest a return to normality and a convincing victory for the Serbian player.

John Millman vs Novak Djokovic Preview: Previous Meetings

Given that John Millman is 29 this year and Djokovic is 31, it’s somewhat surprising to believe they have only met once before on the tour . The only previous match between them was played this summer on English grass, and Djokovic did what he does: he destroyed his opponent, dropping just three games. Grass isn’t even his favourite surface, so the multiple grand slam winner is rightfully optimistic ahead of this fixture on his favoured hard court.

In their previous and only match so far, Novak has outshone his opponent in every imaginable way. He hit more aces, committed fewer double faults, and had a higher percentage on serve. Millman had no breakpoint opportunities, while he was only able to save 8 out of 13 on his own serve. As a result, our John Millman vs Novak Djokovic betting tips are simple: the second match will be similar to the first, and the Serbian will win easily.

John Millman vs Novak Djokovic Prediction: Comfortable Djokovic Win

Even the best stories come to an end and John Millman’s saga ends tonight. He did a fine job in the first few rounds and it is to his credit that he was able to take advantage of Roger Federer’s problems last night. Having said this, his performance wasn’t exceptional in any of the games played so far at the U.S. Open — even the victory against Federer was unimpressive, given the conditions. Millman’s opponent, however, has definitely been exceptional to this point; he has had a great tournament, and is slowly but surely regaining the form that caused him to be named one of the best tennis players of his generation.

Our John Millman vs Novak Djokovic prediction is that Djokovic’s winning streak will be further extended. He has emerged as the main favourite to lift the trophy and for a good reason: he’s playing out of his skill. Millman caused one of the biggest upsets in U.S. Open history, but things will return to normal with the match against Djokovic; and we think it will be in straight sets, too.  Punters will have to take the Asian handicap on games and sets for the sake of bigger odds if they want to bet on the Serbian, but we just can’t see any other choice: Djokovic is going to win, the only question is how easy it is for him.

The final matches of the U.S. Open are scheduled for this weekend and Betting.org will cover all of them.
