Aleksey Grimovskiy vs. Vladimir Zholubak Pick – Setka Cup May 23, 2020

It’s back to the Setka Cup on Saturday where we’ve been perfect so far with a record of 5-0. We were able to record a winning selection on Ilya Parnivoda over Sergey Skhabitskiy on Friday morning. Overall, our table tennis betting record stands at 38-24 thanks to the win in the Setka Cup, which takes place from Ukraine. It wasn’t a close match, with Parnivoda winning in straight sets and never in danger of losing the competition.

Quick and easy table tennis winners that take 10 or so minutes to cash are more than okay with me. The oddsmakers made a huge mistake with Parnivoda at -185 in that match. There was some late steam on Skhabitskiy to bring the odds down a bit even further leading up to the game. That match should have been in the -275 range, but we were able to get away and steal a winner in that one.

It’s almost impossible for oddsmakers to keep up with all of these matches and get the prices exactly right, so there is some value to be had. Hopefully there’s another winning table tennis pick in our future on our plate Saturday. If you can be patient and not chase losses, it’s possible to win on the table tennis courts.

It just requires a lot of patience that a lot of people don’t have. You lose one or two bets and look at that board full on non-stop table tennis options and fire away. That works out sometimes, but typically it becomes a disaster, and the worst thing that anyone could do for their bankroll. We’re back in Ukraine on Saturday looking for a winner in the Setka Cup. The NHL is coming close to an agreement to have a 24-team playoff in July, but in the meantime, we’ll keep hammering away at table tennis.

Keep in mind that depending on which sportsbook you play with, Aleksey Grimovskiy can also be spelled Oleksii Hrymovskyi. Bet365 goes by the Hrymovskiy spelling so keep that in mind when you’re looking for this match, which is scheduled to begin at around 5:50 a.m. EST. We are using BetOnline odds and going with Grimovskiy. Head below for our free Aleksey Grimovskiy vs. Vladimir Zholubak pick for May 23, 2020 in the Setka Cup.

Aleksey Grimovskiy vs. Vladimir Zholubak Prediction:

Aleksey Grimovskiy is a recent addition to the Setka Cup. He just started playing in the Setka Cup on Friday and got off to a really fast start. Grimovskiy looked more than ready to go, as he won four matches and lost one for a record of 4-1. He swept his competition in three of those matches, while winning 3-1 in the other game he won. That includes a match against Vladimir Zholubak, who he did a number on to win in straight sets by a score of 11-8, 11-8, 11-8. How is that for consistency.

Vladimir Zholubak, or Volodymyr Zholubak, started playing in the Setka Cup on May 14. He’s been very average and is coming off a pretty poor day yesterday. Zholubak owns a record of 9-11 in 20 matches of action in the Setka Cup. Most of his wins were against very weak competition. In his most recent win, Zholubak beat Artem Yurkov 3-2. Yurkov is not the best player out there in the Setka Cup. He’s gone 14-22 since beginning play in the Setka Cup on May 6. Zholubak had to battle hard to win that match as well. I’m on Grimovskiy to make it two wins in a row over Zholubak on Saturday.
