Tomas Konecny vs. Antonin Gavlas Pick – Czech TT Star Series April 6, 2020

More table tennis action on Monday morning from the Czech Republic. There’s also options available in Russia in their Pro League if you want even more table tennis. The major sports leagues, and pretty much every sports league across the globe has been suspended, but if you want to gamble, there are still options.

If you’re into table tennis, you could bet on the sport all day long considering all of the matches throughout the morning, afternoon, and night. You don’t have to be the biggest table tennis fan to get into the gambling aspect of it, though. The matches are rapid paced and you’re not going to lose much time in your day.

The schedule to a return to normalcy and sports leagues resume play is all TBD. No one is going to have a clear answer other than the coronavirus. The virus is dictating when sports resume. It could be as early as a few months, or it drags out for all of 2020. People can guess, along with the experts, but it’s difficult to have a clear picture at this point.

The motorsports are doing things right at the moment, as they’re holding virtual races. That includes F1, NASCAR, and IndyCar. The simulators are awfully close to the real thing, so it could be the closest thing we have until it’s safe to resume sports again. The NBA has been holding 2K games for charity, but it’s not nearly the same as virtual motorsport racing, which resembles the real thing in a sense.

They aren’t depending on virtual table tennis matches in Europe yet. We still have three leagues playing live matches. The Czech TT Star Series is full bore ahead, with a full slate of action on Monday to keep sports bettors content. We’ve covered Tomas Konecny a few times now and he’s come through for us more often than not. Let’s see what he has in store for us on Monday. Head below for our free Tomas Konecny vs. Antonin Gavlas pick in the Czech TT Star Series.

Tomas Konecny vs. Antonin Gavlas Prediction:

Tomas Konecny is one of the more steady players in the Czech Republic. He is no Pavel Sirucek, who is currently ranked the top table tennis player in the country, but Konency is currently 4th in Czechia and 189th in the world. He’s a spot better than Tomas Tregler. He was 2nd at times in 2019, so he has regressed a bit, but is still one of the better table tennis players in the TT Star Series. Konecny hasn’t played well in his most recent matches, though. He’s on a three-match losing streak heading into Monday, with losses against Jiri Vrablik twice and David Reitspies.

Konency did have a couple of wins that day, though, as he beat Miroslav Horejsi and Dmitrij Prokopcov. It isn’t like him to go and lose three matches in a row. Konency lost focus and three losses piled up rather quickly. It’s the first time in a long time since Konecny lost three straight matches. Losing two in a row has been abnormal for him to begin with.

He has a match against Jakub Kleprlik prior to this one, so let’s assume that Koencny beats Kleprlik, who is one of the worst players on offer in the TT Star Series. He’s a heavy favourite in that contest. Expect Konency to gather some momentum from what should be a simple win over Kleprlik. Gavlas has struggled against Konency recently.

After beating Konency on March 24, Gavlas has lost three matches in a row. That was a rare treat for Gavlas, as he’s gone 1-5 against Konency in their previous six meetings. Gavlas hasn’t even won a set against Konency in three meetings. Konency has won nine straight sets versus him. He should likely be a -200 favourite here, so Konency at -165 looks like a solid play.
