Join us while we go through the most valuable lines for this week’s action on the ATP and WTA Tour with John Isner as the main favorite to lift the trophy in Atlanta.

<h2>ATP Atlanta – Defending Champion</h2><p>Former University of Georgia star John Isner returns to Atlanta for the ninth consecutive year. Isner is the most successful player in the history of the BB&amp;T Atlanta Open, having won the title in four of the last five editions. Adding to this, the American No.1 won 87.10% of the matches played throughout his career on this event.</p><p>Looking now at John’s draw in Atlanta, the defending champion and 2018 Wimbledon semifinalist starts his campaign against NextGen star Alex de Minaur. The 19-year-old fought back from a set down to beat Polish lucky loser Hubert Hurkacz 1-6, 7-6(0), 7-6(5). The Australian dropped his serve four times but proved too strong for Hurkacz in the decisive moments.</p><p>The sportsbooks are well aware of Isner’s brilliant record in Atlanta with the world No.9 as the main favorite to win the match at -357 with 5Dimes. Despite De Minaur’s undeniable talent, it’s impossible to bet against John on this event. For that reason, our suggestion is for you to add his -1.5 Set Handicap to your <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/more-sports/" target="_blank" title="More Prediction &amp; Free Picks">betting picks</a> at -108 <a href="http://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4550&amp;book=Pinnacle" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Play at this A+ Rated Sportsbook">at Pinnacle</a>. In addition, betting on Isner to lift the trophy for the fifth time at +275 at Bet365 is also an interesting approach for this tournament.</p><p> </p><h2>ATP Gstaad – Player to Keep an Eye</h2><p>Roberto Bautista Agut will make his first appearance since Halle. The 30-year-old had to withdraw from the third Grand Slam of the season after sustaining a left hip injury at the Gerry Webber Open. Nevertheless, Bautista Agut announce that his recovery went very well and that he would attend the Swiss Open in Gstaad for the fourth time in his career.</p><p>Bautista Agut will start his Gstaad campaign against fellow Spaniard Jaume Munar. Known as one of the most promising young players on the ATP World Tour, Munar dropped just one game in the first round against qualifier Adrian Menendez-Maceiras. However, it won’t be easy for Jaume to overcome such a tough competitor as Bautista Agut. On the other hand, Munar never won a match against a top-20 opponent. For that reason, our advice is for you to take advantage of the value on Roberto’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on his -2.5 spread at -108 with Pinnacle.</p><p> </p><h2>WTA Moscow – Player to Fade</h2><p>Alize Cornet won her first title in two and a half years in Gstaad. The French ended her long wait for a sixth singles title by beating Mandy Minella in the final. Despite her impressive run, it’s never easy for the players to perform at their best after winning a title in the previous week. Adding to this, the conditions in Moscow are very different from the ones in Gstaad due to the altitude in the Swiss event. Having said that, our recommendation is to fade Alize on this tournament, starting with the clay-court expert Laura Siegemund in the first round at -120 <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/Sportsbook/?v=4512&amp;book=Bet365" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Bet365 &amp; Start Playing Today!">at Bet365</a>.</p>
