Diego Schwartzman vs Novak Djokovic
- 2020 Australian Open Odds: Djokovic -4999 / Schwartzman +886
Djokovic is in great form. The 2019 Australian Open champ is looking for his eighth Aussie title since 2008. Even though he should dominate Schwartzman on Saturday, Diego took a set at the 2019 Rome Semifinals. Not only that but Schwartzman beat Dusan Lajovic, a tough player, in Round 3. He could make things interesting. There’s nothing wrong with backing a huge dog with a few bucks. Djokovic is not unbeatable. So, why not?
