Murray Favourite But Dimitrov Offers Each Way Value At ATP Queens
The grass court swing of the season really gets going this week as a quality field head to the iconic Queen's Club for the Aegon Championships. Andy Murray is the defending champion but we wonder if there could be a touch of each-way value to be found in the opposite section of the draw...
- Andy Murray is a five-time winner of the Aegon Championships
- 2012 winner Marin Cilic was runner-up in this tournament in 2013 and reached the semi-finals last year
|19th June - 25th June||Odds||Won/Lost||Bet|
|Tips||Grigor Dimitrov (each way) Best Bet||@ 16 / 1|
|Marin Cilic (each way)||@ 16 / 1||P|
Murray has won the Queen's title five times, including the past two in 2015 and 2016, and his record at this venue is quite sensational as his career record reads 30-5. The world number one has won his past fourteen matches on grass and he finally found some form for the season with a run to the French Open semi-finals earlier this month, albeit he is a very skinny 6/4 (Bet Victor).
Murray's price is a touch short when you consider he is in a dangerous top-half of the draw that includes Nick Kyrgios (14/1), 2011 Queen's runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (20/1), Steve Johnson, John Isner and Gilles Muller.
Furthermore, Marin Cilic has a fine record in this event as the 2012 winner was a runner-up at Queen's in 2013 before making the last-four last year. The former US Open champion has enjoyed one of the finest seasons of his career on clay as he made the last-eight of the French Open and won a title in Turkey, which would suggest he is full of confidence going into a grass court swing where the quicker conditions should suit his big serve.
At 16/1 with Boylesports, Cilic is worth an each-way punt.
Our best bet of the week comes from the bottom-half of the draw and Grigor Dimitrov can rediscover his form. The 2014 Queen's Club champion started the year brilliantly, going 16-1 and winning two titles in Brisbane and Sofia, before his form dipped during the clay court stretch.
Like Cilic, Dimitrov will be looking forward to the faster conditions this week and the former champion represents value at 16/1 (Betfred).
It bodes well that Dimitrov has won his last three matches against 2016 Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic, who is pencilled in for a semi-final clash with the Bulgarian in the bottom-half. Raonic was runner-up to Murray in this tournament last year but he has endured a frustrating 2017, with a man who hasn't won a title since January 2016 plenty short enough at 11/2.
Meanwhile, Stan Wawrinka (12/1) may have reached the final of the French Open but his record in lesser tournaments leaves plenty to be desired, while he has never won a grass court title. With that in mind, an each-way punt on Dimitrov is the way to go.
