Join us and find out our two top betting selections for the ATP & WTA Cincinnati Quarter-Finals. We'll provide a detailed analysis explaining why you should place these two valuable tennis picks.

Milos Raonic (4) vs. Dominic Thiem (8)
It has been an incredible year for Dominic Thiem, with the Austrian winning four titles and breaking into the top 10 for the first time in his career. However, playing almost 60 matches in just six months proved to be too much for Thiem, who is currently far from his best level. After not winning a single match in his previous two appearances on this event, Dominic started his campaign with a 7 – 5 6 – 1 triumph over John Millman.

Milos Raonic is for the fifth time this year in a Masters 1000 event quarterfinals after a 6 – 1 3 – 6 6 – 1 victory against Yuichi Sugita. It was quite surprising to see Milos losing that 2nd set but at the end, the Canadian was just too strong for his opponent. The fast court conditions in Cincinnati clearly suit Milos’ powerful game, with Raonic firing an average of 1.21 aces per service game while his average this year on Hard Court is only 0.93.

These two players will face each other for the first time in their careers and even though Thiem’s ability to create problems for any player on the ATP World Tour, the Austrian is far from the level presented in the first six months of the season. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Raonic to your betting picks, in a match where the Canadian should also get the job done in straight sets for those who want to take a higher risk on his set handicap.

Agnieszka Radwanska (5) vs. Simona Halep (3)
After a tough start of the year with several physical issues, Simona Halep is finally back to her best level, with the Romanian looking for another successful campaign in Cincinnati after winning the title in Montreal. Halep reaches this stage of the competition after two brilliant performances against Annika Beck and Daria Gavrilova, losing only an average of 3.5 games per match and winning 66.70% of the games played on her opponent’s serve. Adding to this, Simona has also been extremely consistent on her serve, winning 87.50% of her service games throughout this event.

Agnieszka Radwanska is for the fourth time in her career on this event’s quarterfinals yet, the Polish was never able to go a step further in Cincinnati. After starting her campaign with a phenomenal 6 – 0 6 – 1 victory against Andrea Petkovic, Radwanska had to work much harder on her following contest against Johanna Konta, booking a place in this quarterfinals after recovering from a set down.

This will be the 10th career meeting between these two players with Radwanska leading on the h2h by 5 – 4.

Despite Radwanska’s lead on h2h, it was Simona who won four of their previous six meetings. These two players have featured some remarkable battles and the same is expected here yet, Simona seems to be at a higher level and her groundstrokes might be too much for Agnieszka to handle. Having said that, our recommendation for this match is for you to take advantage of Simona’s betting odds by placing a bet on the Romanian to cover her spread.
