The Taipei OEC Open kicks off late Monday night with Round 1 matches between some of the lesser known tennis players at the WTA. Handicapping lesser known tennis matches can often lead to more profit because tennis odds aren’t always as sharp as they should be.

Top Tennis Betting Picks for the Week – Nov. 12th Edition
Austrian Barbara Haas has won a singles title this year. Granted, she only made $62,766, but winning any singles title on the WTA qualifies as an accomplishment. Haas must travel from Austria to China for this tournament, though.
En-Shou Liang is a Taipei 18-year-old who made it all the way to the quarterfinals at the Jiangxi Open in July. She could be a much better player than anybody knows. At the odds, she’s worth backing because her shot of winning might be closer to even money.
Tennis Betting Pick: En-Shuo Liang
Magdalena Frech -110 vs Elena Rybakina -110
Magdalena Frech had all sorts of trouble in her last tournament, the Tashkent Open in Ubekistan from Sep. 24 through Sep. 30. She lost 5-7, 2-6 to Evgeniya Rodina. Rodina was seeded 7th in the Tashkent Open.
Fresh could have better luck against Elena Rybakina in Taipei. Rybakina got out of Round 1 at the Internationaux Strasbourg in Strasbourg, France. However, that was way back in May. Frech gets the slight nod in what should be a competitive match.
Tennis Betting Pick: Magdalena Frech
Sabine Lisicki +115 vs Misaki Doi -135
Misaki Doi of Japan has 2 singles titles and 5 doubles titles victories this year. She bowed out to Sarina Sharipova in Round 1 at the Mumbai Open earlier in November.
Doi battles Sabine Lisicki, a 29-year-old German player who’s won more than $7 million during her career. She’s made a decent living on the tennis courts. This should be a competitive match even though Doi gets the nod.
The reason? Sharipova was the 1-seed at the Mumbai Open where, like Doi, Lisicki bowed out to 8-seed Nao Hibino in Round 1.
Tennis Betting Pick: Misaki Doi
Lin Zhu +145 vs Jil Teichmann -170
Urszula Radwanska made quick work of Lin Zhu at the Mumbai Open. Zhu lost in straight sets 6-7 (5-7), 3-6. Zhu doesn’t have much shot versus Jil Teichmann, a Swiss player that made it to Round 2 at the Genarali Ladies Linz in her last tournament played.
Teichmann should do enough tonight for the straight set win.
Tennis Betting Pick: Jil Teichmann
