The 31 year-old Gulbis has only met the 19 year-old Auger-Aliassime once previously, with the teenager prevailing 7-5 6-3 on the grass in the first round at the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart in June 2019.

Auger-Aliassime went on to make it to the final in Stuttgart, where Italy’s Matteo Berrettini beat him 6–4, 7–6 (13-11).

Betting Odds - Winner

Ernests Gulbis, a former Top 10 player back in 2014, is only 256 in the world rankings at present and had to come through 3 (yes, 3!) qualifying rounds to reach the first round proper. He has not won a match at tour level since the Los Cabos Open in Mexico last July.

Auger-Aliassime is seeded 20 at the Australian Open, although his form has been a little indifferent recently, having won just three times in his last 10 matches.

In terms of Australian Open 2020 picks for this match, the Latvian Gulbis did come through three qualifying rounds and he could be awkward opposition for the highest-ranked teenager in the ATP world rankings (Auger-Aliassime is 22nd in the rankings), but the young Canadian has to be the bet to win this match, although our tennis betting pick is in the Set Betting market here.
