- Top 3 Best Russia Liga Pro Table Tennis Bets
There are dozens of interesting matchups on Tuesday in the Liga Pro Table Tennis league, but we’ve done the research and found the best three matchups you should be considering in table tennis betting. Check out our predictions of each match on October the 5th, and check back here for more table tennis predictions here..
Our number one bet for Tuesday features Dmitriy Balakin (1.77) v. Vasily Shirshov (1.909) - 12:45 AM Shirshov narrowly leads the head-to-head against Balakin (9-8), but Balakin has gained momentum as of late against Shirshov, winning three of their last four meetings.
Dmitriy Balakin enters this matchup as the favorite, but these odds are likely due to the losing streak of his opponent. Balakin is a streaky player himself, and he has been fairly poor as of late, going 6-12 in his last 18 matches. Bettor beware of putting money on this favorite, as he is far from a lock pick.
Slight underdog Vasily Shirshov is ice cold heading into Tuesday’s matches. Shirshov has lost his last nine matches, making him a player to keep an eye on each day. Shirshov has to turn this streak around at some point, and this favorable matchup gives him a great chance to get a victory. Look for Shirshov to stop the losing streak with a big win against Balakin, cashing (1.909) odds.
For the upcoming game of Aleksey Vlasov (2.65) v. Artem Suntsov (1.42) - 12:15 AM, Aleksey Vlasov takes on Artem Suntsov in their 19th head-to-head matchup. Suntsov has dominated this rivalry, winning 15 of 18 previous matches. On top of this, Sunstov has won 9 of his last 12 matches overall heading into Tuesday, which includes a four match win streak he brings with him from Monday’s Liga Pro action.
Underdog Aleksey Vlasov finds himself in patchy form ahead of Tuesday’s matches. Vlasov is .500% in his last 12 matches, going 6-6. While he has not fared well against Suntsov for the most part, Vlasov did get a decisive 3-1 victory the last time these two met about three weeks ago.
This matchup is our fifth favorite to bet on due to the head-to-head dominance that Suntsov has found against Vlasov. On top of this, Suntsov has found a good vein of form as of late, while Vlasov has done the opposite, failing to string together positive results. We look for a handy win for Suntsov in this one. The safe bet would be to take Sunstov moneyline at (1.42) odds, but for those who are looking for a slightly larger payday could consider betting on Suntsov to win comfortably and to cover the (-6.5) spread for (1.87) odds.
The upcoming table tennis match of Evgeniy Ilyukhin (2.35) against Andrey Pravednov (1.526) at 1:30 AM would be the matchup for the 19th time overall, with Pravednov coming in leading the series 12-6. While they’ve played each other many times, the pair haven’t seen much of each other this calendar year, with 16 of their previous matchups coming in 2020. Pravendnov has won both matches against Ilyukhin in 2021.
Underdog Ilyukhin is currently a very easy player to bet against. He has lost five of his last seven matches, and has also formed a very noticeable trend in his play. Dating back to the 25th of September, Ilyukhin has struggled in his last match of his session. Ilyukhin has lost his last seven final matches of the day, making his matchup against Pravednov especially intriguing considering it is both players final match of their sessions.
We’re predicting Andrey Pravednov to take care of business and get the victory over Evegeniy Ilyukhin. As stated, Ilyukhin struggles heavily in his last match of the day, which will factor into this match. Pravednov should cruise to victory in this one, making a (-4.5) spread play at (1.833) odds a possibility for Pravednov bettors.
