Top Tennis Betting Picks for the Week – April 8th Edition

2019 Clay Court Championship

Bernard Tomic vs Denis Kudla

Bernard Tomic didn’t last long in his last tournament played. He beat Thiago Monteiro 6-4, 6-1, but then lost in the second round. Then again, the player Tomic faced would beat most any other tennis player on the planet. Tomic lost to the great Novak Djokovic. What’s interesting is how Bernard pushed Novak in the first set, forcing a tie-breaker set. Djokovic beat Tomic 7-2 in the tie-breaker set and then dominated him 6-2 in the second set, but Tomic at least put up a fight.

Denis Kudla didn’t get out of Round 1 at the Miami Open. Roberto Caballes Baena beat him 6-1, 6-2. Kudla should play much better on Monday, but Tomic has a great shot coming out ahead at the very good odds.

Tennis Betting Pick: Bernard Tomic

Marcel Granollers vs Taylor Fritz

Marcel Granollers last played in the double-matches at the Miami Open. He didn’t even play any singles matches, making it difficult to know if he’ll do enough on Monday to get past chalk Taylor Fritz.

However, Fritz didn’t get out of the first round in Miami. He lost 4-6, 6-3, 3-6 to Maximillian Marterer. Taylor Fritz is favored even though there’s no reason why he should be favored. Granollers can pull off the upset.

Tennis Betting Pick: Marcel Granollers

Ryan Harrison vs Ivo Karlovic

Ryan Harrison hasn’t played competitively since the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells. He didn’t last very long in the tournament, losing 3-6, 5-7 to Carballes Baena, the same player that beat Denis Kudla in round one at the Miami Open.

Ivo Karlovic dropped his Miami Open Round 1 match to Pablo Andujar 6-7 (2-7), 4-6. Karlovic is 40-years-old while Harrison is 26. The younger tennis player might have an edge here, making Harrison a decent play at the odds.

Tennis Betting Pick: Ryan Harrison

Christian Garin vs Pablo Cuevas

Chilean player Garin preferred to stay close to home in his last tournament played. He battled in the Brasil Open and made it all the way to the finals where he lost 5-7, 3-6 to Guido Pella.

Garin is stepping up in class by taking on Garin on Monday. Cuevas lost 4-6, 7-6 (8-6), 3-6 to Dusan Lajovic in the first round at the Miami Open, but he’s 9-7 in singles matches this year. Still, it’s hard to take the odds on Cuevas in what should be a competitive match.

Tennis Betting Pick: Christian Garin
