Join us for our tennis betting analysis for the ATP Sao Paulo, Acapulco and Dubai. Find out the most valuable lines for this week's action on the ATP World Tour.
ATP Sao Paulo – Defending Champion
Playing in Sao Paulo brings great memories to Pablo Cuevas. Known as one of the best clay-court players in the game, the 32-year-old holds a perfect 13 – 0 career record on this event. The altitude of the town (2,392 feet above sea level) creates unusual quick conditions for the players. Adding to this, the tournament returns to Ibirapuera for the first time since 2015, which means that this year’s edition of the Brazil Open will be played on Indoor.
Taking a look now at Pablo’s draw on this event, the defending champion won’t have an easy task with very dangerous players on his half of the draw such as Fabio Fognini, Federico Delbonis and Leonardo Mayer. Despite the tough draw ahead of him, it’s impossible to ignore Cuevas’ brilliant record on this event. On the other hand, the fast court conditions in Sao Paulo suit the Uruguayan’s game style. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to place a small stake on Cuevas to extend to win his 4th consecutive Brazil Open title at +450 at BetVictor.
ATP Acapulco – Player to Fade
Jack Sock continues his quest for first title of the season. The American No.1 couldn’t have asked for a better way to end 2017 after winning his first ever ATP World Tour Masters 1000 in Paris. Nevertheless, Sock has been far from his best this season with a terrible 25.00% winning record so far. Moreover, the court conditions in Acapulco are far from ideal for Jack’s game style with the 25-year-old still looking for his first career win on this event.
The No.4 seed starts his campaign this Tuesday against fellow countryman Ernesto Escobedo. Looking now at the odds for this encounter, the market is well aware of Jack’s poor performance in 2018 with his price drifting 9.79% from -233 to -175 at Pinnacle. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to fade Sock in Acapulco, starting by taking advantage of the value on Escobedo’s tennis betting odds at +175 at William Hill.
ATP Dubai – Player to Keep an Eye
After a slow start to 2018, Philipp Kohlschreiber is returning to his best level. Known as one of the most talented players on the ATP World Tour, the 34-year-old is always a fearful opponent. Adding to this, playing in Dubai brings the best out of Kohlschreiber with the German reaching at least the quarterfinals in all his last three appearances on this event.
The former world No.16 didn’t experience any major problems on his debut with a 6 – 4 6 – 2 against Gleb Sakharov. Taking a look now at Kohlschreiber’s draw on this event, the No.6 seed returns to action this Wednesday against Stefanos Tsitsipas. Despite Tsitsipas’ undeniable quality, it won’t be easy for the teenager to overcome such a tough opponent as Kohlschreiber. Therefore, our advice is for you to add the German to your betting picks at -154 at Pinnacle as the best betting approach for this contest.
