Written by on February 26, 2018

We are now getting into the heart of the season, and as always, this week there are several tournaments available for all the tennis betting enthusiasts. The ATP has no less than 3 different events getting started this Monday, February 26, with all 3 of those tournaments scheduled to be a week long. You can, of course, bet on all the tennis individual matches within each of these events, but we are going to take a quick look at them as a whole, picking a winner for each tournament. We hope that these predictions will help you pocket some extra money by the time this week is over. Without further ado, let’s get right to the action.

Top Tournaments of the Week

Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships

This is an event that always seems to draw some of the bigger names in the sport, with the likes of Andy Murray, Roger Federer, and Stan Wawrinka winning here in recent years. None of those men will be here this week, and it will be Grigor Dimitrov who will be in as the #1 seed for this tournament. He has only ever played this event once before, and it was a bit of a disaster, as he went out at the first time of asking. I am not convinced that he should really be in here as the top seed given his spotty record, which is why I am looking elsewhere for the winner. My money is going to be on Lucas Poille, given that he made it all the way to the semi-final in the 2017 Dubai Duty-Free Tennis Championships, and against much stiffer competition than he will face this week.

Abierto Mexicana Telcel

This event was played on clay until 2014 when it switched over to the now familiar blue hard court. American Sam Querrey won this event last year and will be back to defend his crown this week. His main competition this week is likely to be Rafael Nadal, with the likes of Zverev, Thiem, and Cilic all in the hunt for the prize money. Sam Querrey is the defending champions, which is why he is one of the Tennis Betting favorites once again. While Querrey is the man to beat as the defending champion, it is hard to look past Nadal here, as he comes into this event boasting a 14-1 record over the years that he has played here. Nadal has won it twice before, and I like him to get his 3rd victory here this week.

Brasil Open

This event will be played outdoors on clay and will feature Pablo Cuevas, a man who has won this tournament in each of the past 3 years. Cuevas is not the top seed, though, with that distinction going to Albert Ramos-Vinolas, the man who lost to Cuevas in the final last year. You get the feeling that these two will meet again at some point this week, with Gael Monfils as another player that could possibly play a role in the outcome of this tournament. Cuevas has proven that he loves this court and this event, so I am not going to overlook him this week as he starts his quest for 4 in a row.
