Davis Cup Betting Odds Comparison

Argentina are looking to make history this weekend, as they take on Croatia in the Davis Cup final. Only one of these two sides can be crowned world champions of men’s Tennis, but just who will it be? Here are our latest predictions, betting tips and odds comparison for this weekend’s clash.

The main talking point ahead of this match is that Argentina are looking to end a long wait for Davis Cup success. They may have started playing in the competition 95 years ago, but they’ve yet to win it. Four final appearances for the South Americans have all ended in heart-break, and they’re expected to suffer the same fate this weekend, according to the latest betting odds.

Croatia started playing Davis Cup tennis in 1993, and they’ve already got a title under their belt. They were crowned as champions in 2005, and they’re looking for a repeat in Zagreb 11 years on. Sky Bet price them as 8/15 favourites, with their best player Marin Cilic leading the way for them. He’s been strong in grand slams, and now he and his team have home advantage to back them up. However, this clash is likely to be a lot closer than the odds suggest.

Whoever you’re planning to back in this match, you should take a look at our odds comparison before you get your bets on. It’s a key tool no matter what kind of bet you’re thinking of placing. You can find all the latest betting odds and markets, and you can see which bookmaker offers the best price on each. That way you won’t end up getting short changed by backing a lower price.

Odds comparison is also a great way to find value across a multitude of markets. While early on there aren’t too many bets to back on the Davis Cup final, that will change on the eve of the event. Through our odds comparison, you can see the best available markets, and find out which bookie is offering the highest prices.

Right now, Argentina are big outsiders for this final. They are 13/8 with Bet365 to take a first ever Davis Cup title. While they don’t have a successful history in the competition, recent years suggest they might have an advantage. The last three Davis Cup finals have all been won by the away team. That includes Great Britain’s win in Belgium a year ago.

Does having home advantage really mean that much? It hasn’t in recent years, and these players are used to travelling the world for matches. The Argentines will be experienced in traveling, while there could be an extra bit of pressure on the Croatians to impress in front of their home fans. Could that tip the scales towards the South American side?

Obviously there aren’t too many betting tips you can make on a two horse race, but our prediction is a win for the long suffering Argentines. They may not have a player ranked as highly as Marin Cilic, but they do have Juan Martin del Potro. He’s the man for the big occasion, as Andy Murray knows only too well.

The Olympic Games last summer saw the Argentine take on Murray in the final, he came up just short of beating the Scotsman. He was unlucky to just take home silver, but it shows that the former US Open champion can still mix it with the best in the game. He may not have any major wins to look back on, but he can bring the Davis Cup to Argentina for the first time.

Del Potro got revenge for that Olympic defeat by beating Murray in the singles during the Davis Cup semis. That win in Glasgow kicked off a strong weekend for Argentina, and they ending up winning that semi final 3-2. Beating the current top player in the world shows that Del Potro is an extremely capable player, and we’re backing him to lead his nation to glory this weekend. Our betting tip here is to back the away side at 13/8 with Bet365, we see a fourth straight victory for the visitors in a Davis Cup final.

Before you settle down for the final big event in this year’s tennis calendar, don’t forget to take a look at our odds comparison. Once bookmakers start adding extra betting odds and markets ahead of the match, you might find a great value tip by comparing all the available prices.
