It was nervy at times, but Carlos Alcaraz got the job done in five sets against Jan-Lennard Struff in the first round of Wimbledon.

Alcaraz's unproven track record on grass was apparent as he struggled to defeat Struff on Monday, going down two sets to one before rallying to win in the fifth set. Now, he draws Tallon Griekspoor in the second round as he looks to find his footing.

Here are the odds for this second round meeting from WynnBET Sportsbook:

Tallon Griekspoor vs. Carlos Alcaraz Odds, Spread, Total


  • Griekspoor: +5 (-120)
  • Alcaraz: -5 (+100)


  • Greikspoor: +238
  • Alcaraz: -300

Total: 37.5 (Over -110/Under -110)

Tallon Griekspoor vs. Carlos Alcaraz Prediction and Pick

Griekspoor is also unproven on grass, he qualified last year and won his first round matchup before being eliminated by Alexander Zverev, but I think that he can also stay close to Alcaraz like Struff did.

The No. 53 player on the ATP Tour defeated Fabio Fognini in four sets in the first round, winning 84% of his first serve points and 56% on his second serve return points. While Fognini is not as talented as Alcaraz, especially returning serves, Griekspoor should still thrive on the fast Wimbledon courts.

The Dutch player is 7-3 on grass this season and has far more form compared to Alcaraz, who only played in exhibition matches in the run up to Wimbledon.

I'll take the over games in what should be another long match for the Spaniard.

LEAN: OVER 37.5 Games (-110)
