Pick 1: Medvedev to Win (1.50)

It’s a well-known fact that Daniil Medvedev has never defended a title–he hasn’t even won twice at the same venue. Doing that in Rome, where no one expected him to come out the victor last year, would be pretty crazy. The Russian remains in the tournament for now, barely outlasting Hamad Medjedovic on Monday. His last match against Tommy Paul in slow conditions was extremely tricky. But with both players not liking the clay too much, maybe Medvedev can actually keep going?
