Join us while we go through the most valuable lines for this week's action on the WTA Tour. Find out who is the main contender in Prague, as well as the undeniable favorite in Rabat.

WTA Prague - Main Contender

Petra Kvitova continues to impress on her Prague Open debut. The former world No.2 is trying to become the fourth Czech player to lift the trophy in Prague after Lucie Hradecka, Lucie Safarova and Karolina Pliskova. Known as one of the most powerful players in tennis history, the fast court conditions in Prague are perfect for Petra's game style. Adding to this, playing in Czech Republic brings the best out of Kvitova with the two-time Wimbledon champion winning 82.86% of the matches played throughout her career in her home country.

The 28-year-old completed her 68th career win on clay as she defeat Natalia Vikhlyantseva in two easy sets by 6 - 3 6 - 1. The No.2 seed returns to action this Thursday against fellow Czech Katerina Siniakova. Despite Siniakova's undeniable quality, it's impossible to go against Petra at the moment. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add Petra's set handicap to your betting picks. On the other hand, placing a bet on Kvitova to win the title in Prague at +125 at BetVictor is also a valuable approach for this tournament.

Free Tennis Pick: Petra Kvitova -1.5 Set Handicap (-108)

WTA Rabat – Undeniable Favorite

Elise Mertens remains unbeaten on clay in 2018. The Belgian No.1 is having a fantastic season with an outstanding 78.57% winning record. On the other hand, Mertens won her second title of the year a few weeks ago at the Samsung Open in Lugano. The 22-year-old advanced to the Grand Prix Son Altesse Royale La Princesse Lalla Meryem quarterfinals after Laura Siegemund was forced to retire in the third set.

Looking now at Elise’s draw on this event, the top seed returns to action this Thursday against Sara Errani. Known as one of the greatest competitors in tennis history, the 2012 French Open runner-up reaches this stage of the competition after an impressive 6 – 3 6 – 0 win over Johanna Larsson. However, it’s impossible to ignore Mertens’ 2 – 0 lead on the h2h. Adding to this, Mertens only dropped four games on their most recent encounter in the Fed Cup semifinals last week. Having said that, our recommendation is for you to take advantage of the value on Elise’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on her spread as the best line for this contest.

Free Tennis Pick: Elise Mertens -4.5 (-109)
Best Line Offered: at Pinnacle
