The Davis Cup action returns this Friday with the quarterfinals taking place. Join us while we analyze the highest value tennis picks for this weekend and why you should place these bets.
This Davis Cup tie takes place in Brisbane with Hard Court as the chosen surface.
- Australia will present the same team that defeated Czech Republic two months ago: Nick Kyrgios, Jordan Thompson, Sam Groth and John Peers.
- Despite the Bryan brothers’ absence, the USA still counts with a high quality team with four top 30 players: Jack Sock, John Isner, Sam Querrey and Steve Johnson.
This is by far the most balanced tie of the weekend with the United States available at -125 at BetVictor while Pinnacle offers +120 for Australia’s victory.
With Nick Kyrgios playing at such a high level in recent weeks, it seems unlikely to see him losing any of his two singles matches. On the other hand, it won’t be easy either for Jordan Thompson to end the weekend with a victory since Jack Sock and John Isner should be too strong for him.
With this in mind, it all comes down to the doubles match between Sam Groth & John Peers and Jack Sock & Steve Johnson. Even though Peers is currently the world no.2 in the doubles ranking, the Americans are the clear favorites for this contest. Therefore, we expect to see the USA booking a place in the semifinals, which makes their betting odds at -125 at BetVictor the best approach for this tie.
Belgium vs Italy
Italy travels to Charleroi for this Davis Cup tie that will be played on Indoor Hard Court.
- David Goffin return to the team after missing the last tie against Germany. Besides Goffin, the Belgian team counts with Steve Darcis, Ruben Bemelmans and Joris De Loore.
- Due to Fabio Fognini’s injury, Italy will play this tie with Paolo Lorenzi, Andreas Seppi, Alessandro Giannessi and Simone Bolelli.
Known for his brilliant 24 – 11 overall record on Davis Cup, Fabio Fognini’s absence is a huge blow to Italy’s aspirations on this competition. The market is well aware of that with Belgium’s price steaming from -110 to -323 at Pinnacle.
Despite Paolo Lorenzi and Andreas Seppi’s large experience, it’s highly unlikely to see Italy leaving Charleroi with the victory. Lorenzi’s numbers on Indoor Hard Court are far from brilliant with a poor 41.18% winning record throughout his career. Adding to this, Seppi is not going through a good moment in recent months. Besides winning only 28.57% of his last 7 matches, Andreas is currently ranked outside the top 70.
On the other hand, Belgium is famous for their great performances on Davis Cup in recent years. Despite David Goffin’s absence in the previous round, the 2015 runner-ups defeated Germany against all expectations. Steve Darcis was the national hero on that tie after winning his two singles matches against Philipp Kohlschreiber and Alexander Zverev.
Having said that, our suggestion is for you to add Belgium to your betting picks to win this tie. Even though the current price is too low for a single play at -323 at Pinnacle, there is still value to add this selection to a parlay for the weekend.
