Join our expert tennis capper for his tennis betting analysis for the ATP Istanbul, Estoril and Munich. Find out the most valuable lines for the upcoming week on the ATP World Tour.

ATP Istanbul - Undeniable Favorite

Marin Cilic returns to Istanbul to defend his title from 12 months ago. The defending champion got married to his longtime girlfriend Kristina Milkovic last weekend but decided to postpone his honeymoon to the summer. The 2018 TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open has one of the worst fields since it started in 2015. Cilic is the only player from the top-30 in the draw after Filip Krajinovic decided to withdraw from the event. For that reason, it’s not surprising to see Marin as the undeniable favorite to win back-to-back titles in Istanbul at +138. Having said that, our advice is for you to add Cilic’s outright to your betting picks as the best betting approach for this tournament.

ATP Munich - Former Champion

Three-time BMW Open champion Philipp Kohlschreiber started his campaign in Munich with a straight-sets win over Ivo Karlovic in 76 minutes. Known for playing his best tennis in Germany, the 34-year-old holds a remarkable 32 – 12 record in Munich. Adding to this, Kohlschreiber won 62.50% of his eight ATP World Tour titles in his home country.

Kohlschreiber returns to action this Thursday against fellow German Mischa Zverev. This will be the second career meeting between these two with Zverev emerging victorious from their previous encounter in Rotterdam 10 years ago. Nevertheless, clay is definitely Mischa’s worst surface with the 30-year-old winning only 43.10% of the matches played throughout his career on red dirt. For that reason, our recommendation is for you to place a bet on Kohlschreiber’s set handicap as the best tennis play for this match. On the other hand, placing a small bet on Philipp to win his 4th title in Munich at +700 is also an interesting line for those who want to take a higher risk on this event.

Free Tennis Pick: Philipp Kohlschreiber -1.5 Set Handicap (-139)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle

ATP Estoril - Player to Keep an Eye

The 2017 semifinalist Kevin Anderson returns to Portugal in a much better state than a year ago, when he was unseeded and ranked outside the top-50. The South-African will make his first appearance since his defeat against Pablo Carreno Busta in the quarterfinals of the Miami Open. The 31-year-old is going through the best moment in his career with an outstanding 73.91% winning record in 2018. Adding to this, Anderson became the first South-African player to reach a Grand Slam final since Kevin Curren in the 1984 Australian Open.

Looking now at Kevin's draw on this event, the No.1 seed won't have an easy task on his debut against Stefanos Tsitsipas. The 19-year-old, who became the first Greek to reach an ATP Tour final in 45 years, continued his fine form with a straight-sets win over Pablo Andujar. Nevertheless, it’s impossible to ignore the tremendous value on Anderson’s tennis betting odds to win this match. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to place a bet on the South-African as the most valuable play for this contest.

Free Tennis Pick: Kevin Anderson ML (+105)
Best Line Offered: at 5Dimes
