Written by on October 8, 2018

If you’re looking for some excellent tennis betting value for the coming week, then let’s find out who’s in action and where that value lies.

Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week – October 8th Edition

Shanghai Masters

Tuesday, October 9

  • Marin Cilic -540
  • Nicolas Jarry +395
World No. 6 Marin Cilic and World No. 48 Nicolas Jarry have never played one another, but there’s a reason why the 30-year-old Cilic is the big favorite here over the 22-year-old Nicolas Jarry. Cilic has gone 38-15 on the year with one title while Jarry has gone a more modest 25-19 with no titles. For their respective careers, Cilic is 473-247 while Jarry is just 30-29 since turning pro in 2014.Jarry is undeniably talented and he’s one of the ATP Tour’s group of hopeful NextGen stars, but right now, Marin Cilic is the far more polished player. More importantly, Cilic knows this is a match he can not afford to lose as he seeks to get as high a seed as possible for the season-ending ATP World Finals. Cilic just got smacked around in a stunning first round loss to Jan-Lenard Struff at the Japan Open a week ago, so he’s certainly going to be dialed in. Jarry also got dispatched in the first round at the Japan Open by losing to veteran Frenchman Benoit Paire in straight sets. Keep it simple here tennis bettors. A locked in Marin Cilic is a virtual lock to win and and advance.Tennis Betting Pick: Marin Cilic in 3 Sets
  • Jeremy Chardy +805
  • Novak Djokovic -1220
There’s a reason why World No. 3 Novak Djokovic is an insane -1220 favorite to win this match and it’s because he’s completely owned veteran Jeremy Chardy throughout their head-to-head meetings. The 31-year-old Djokovic is an unblemished11-0 against the 31-year-old Chardy while taking three of the last four meetings in straight sets, including their meeting at The Queen’s Club earlier this year. After a painfully slow start to his 2018 campaign, Djokovic is back to looking like the best player on the planet after winning both, Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. While the sweet-swinging Serbian has gone 40-10 with three titles in 2018, Jeremy Chary is an uninspiring 23-19 with no titles. Although it’s going to cost you…the outcome in this pairing is a virtual lock. Novak Djokovic wins and cashes in!Tennis Betting Pick: Novak Djokovic in Straight Sets

Hong Kong Open

Tuesday, October 9

  • Elina Svitolina -1700
  • Priscilla Hon +950
World No. 5 Elina Svitolina and 20-year-old Priscilla Hon have never played one another but there’s a reason why the 24-year-old Ukraine native is such a huge favorite and it’s because she’s light years ahead of where Hon is at this stage of their respective careers. Hon has spent the majority of her professional career on the lower level ITF Tour while Svitolina has become one of the best players in the world the last two years. Svitolina has gone 37-14 on the year with three titles while Hon is a modest 29-23 with no titles. Svitolina has a lot to play for as she tries to get better position for the season-ending WTA Tour Finals. Points blank. I fully expect Svitolina to win this one in straight sets and you should too.Tennis Betting Pick: Elina Svitolina in Straight Sets
