Beatriz Haddad Maia vs. Bianca Andreescu
Bianca Andreescu is the slight favorite on the opening odds, which makes sense. When Andreescu is at the top of her game, she’s one of the best players at the WTA.
But when she’s not, Bianca struggles to get past unranked players. Beatriz Haddad Maia is 41-17 in singles matches this season. She’s won a couple of singles titles and a couple of doubles titles. She also blasted first round opponent Ana Konjuh 6-0, 6-0. Haddad Maia rolls.
2022 US Open Pick: Beatriz Haddad Maia -108
Anna Kalinskaya vs. Carolina Garcia
Underdog Anna Kalinskaya has played well in her first match. The +252 choice beat Rebecca Peterson 6-4, 6-3. Kalinskaya is 22-17 in singles matches this season.
On Wednesday, the underdog will have to step it up. Carolina Garcia has won 3 singles matches this year. Two of the victories include the Bad Homburg Open, where she beat Bianca Andreescu in the final, and the BNP Paribas Poland Open. The chalk should roll.
2022 US Open Pick: Carolina Garcia -312
Xiyu Wang vs. Maria Sakkari
In her first round U.S. Open match, Xiyu Wang struggled. The 21-year-old Chinese player required 3 sets to get past Diane Parry. Wang’s opponent was no slouch.
But on August 31, Wang faces a player that can win the U.S. Open in Maria Sakkari. The 3-seed is 28-17 in singles matches this season. Sakkari covers the games spread.
2022 US Open Pick: Maria Sakkari -5.0 +100
Ons Jabeur vs. Elizabeth Mandik
Underdog Elizabeth Mandik battled Tamara Zidansek for four sets in round 1. Mandik’s job doesn’t get easier on Wednesday because she must go against 5-seed Ons Jabeur.
In her first round match, Jabeur easily bested Madison Brengle. Ons has won a couple of singles titles this season and is 38-13 in singles matches. She should have no trouble covering the spread.
2022 US Open Pick: Ons Jabeur -5.5 -112
Veronika Kudermetova vs. Maryna Zanevska
Chalk Veronika Kudermetova has won a couple of doubles titles and is 29-16 in singles matches this season. Kudermetova beat Donna Vekic 7-5, 6-3 in her first round match.
Underdog Maryna Zanevska also beat her first round opponent in straight sets, dropping Coco Vandeweghe 6-1, 7-5. Kudermetova can cover this, but 5.5 is a lot to lay versus an opponent that played as well as Veronika did in round 1.
2022 US Open Pick: Maryna Zanevska +5.5 -112
Dalma Galfi vs. Harriet Dart
24-year-old Hungarian Dalma Galfi played a good match in the first round, beating Nuria Parrizas Diaz 6-4, 6-3. Harriet Dart required 4 sets to get by her first round opponent. But Dart faced 10-seed Daria Kasatkina.
So Harriet played the tougher opponent. Still, Galfi should be well-rested and the chalk in this had to work. Backing Dalma makes sense.
2022 US Open Pick: Dalma Galfi +121
