Top seed, Novak Djokovic, is a short priced favourite to win the ATP World Tour Finals at the O2 Arena in London on Sunday night. We take a look at the game from a betting angle.
Novak Djokovic v Alexander Zverev
Djokovic stormed through all 3 of his Group matches to comfortably top the Guga Kuerten Group. He disposed of Zverev and Isner in straight sets and despite having already booked his spot in the semi-finals, he did the likewise to Cilic on Friday night winning 7-6, 6-2. He faced South African, Kevin Anderson, in the semi-finals and was far too strong with a comfortable 6-2, 6-2 victory.
Zverev was also in the Kuerten Group and his only loss was in his opening game to Djokovic 6-4 and 6-1. He then had tight straight set victories over Cilic and Isner before outlasting Federer 7-5, 7-6 in his semi-final.
This will be the 4th meeting between this pair with Djokovic leading the head-to-heads 2-1 and Djokovic has won both meetings this year in straight sets.

Novak Djokovic 1/8
Alexander Zverev 19/4
Suggested Bet: Zverev, Total Games over 8.5 at 19/20.
This is a bet not backed up by the stats but I do think that Zverev is capable of putting on a better show than what he was able to do in the Group stages. There was plenty of merits in his victory over Federer and while Djokovic will be really hard to stop, this bet should provide us with a good interest.
