Join our expert tennis capper for his top betting selections for the WTA Finals Singapore on Friday (early-morning USA time). He'll provide a detailed analysis, explaining why you should grab these two valuable bets.

Caroline Wozniacki (6) vs. Caroline Garcia (8)

The former world No. 1 Wozniacki couldn’t have asked for a better return to the WTA Finals Singapore. Regardless of Friday’s outcome, Wozniacki already secured a place in the semifinals for the 5th time in her career. Known as best defenders in tennis, the slow court conditions at the Singapore Indoor Stadium are perfect for Caroline’s game style. She reached this stage of the competition after two flawless performances against Elina Svitolina and Simona Halep.

Garcia continues to pursue a spot in semifinals. The 24-year-old fought back from the brink of elimination to win another epic battle with Svitolina. On the other hand, Garcia ended the match with extraordinary numbers: 58 winners and only 31 unforced errors. The French player needs to win her match against Wozniacki and wait for a victory from Simona Halep to qualify for the semifinals in Singapore.

This will be the 3rd career meeting between these two players with Garcia still looking for her first win. 

As the h2h suggests, the Dane is a terrible matchup for Garcia as Wozniacki didn’t drop a single set in their previous encounters. It won't be easy for the Frenchwoman to overcome such a great defender as Wozniacki on these slow court conditions. With this in mind, take advantage of the value on Wozniacki’s tennis betting odds by placing a bet on her spread as the most valuable line for this contest.

Simona Halep (1) vs. Elina Svitolina (4)

Svitolina arrived at the WTA Finals with high expectations after a great run in 2017. In addition to her 52-16 record this season, Svitolina has won five WTA titles. Nevertheless, the Ukrainian is on the brink of elimination after two poor performances in this event. Despite her disappointing defeat against Garcia on Wednesday, the world No. 4 is technically still alive in the competition but needs a small miracle to qualify for the semifinals.

Halep hopes to rediscover top form Friday after a shocking 0-6, 2-6 defeat to Wozniacki. The world No. 1 couldn’t find her rhythm on the court with 17 unforced errors in just 14 games. Despite that bad performance, Halep is one win away from reaching the semifinals in Singapore. On the other hand, if Wozniacki wins her match then Simona only needs to win one set to secure a place in the semis.

This should be an exciting contest between two of the best defenders in the game. Despite Simona’s 3-2 lead on the h2h, Svitolina proved too strong for the Romanian earlier this year in Rome and Canada. Due to the lack of value on Halep’s tennis betting odds, our recommendation is for you to add Elina betting picks. On the other hand, placing a bet on Svitolina’s set handicap is also an interesting approach since winning just one set might be enough for Halep to qualify.
