Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week – August 15th, 2022

By Hank Blaine

One of the most popular non-major tennis tournaments on the ATP and WTA schedules happens this week when some of the best tennis players in the world throw down at the Western & Southern Open. The tournament takes place in Cincinnati, Ohio and serves as warm-up event for the U.S. Open at Flushing Meadows later this month. Check out tennis odds, analysis, and picks for three ATP singles matches and three WTA singles matches at the 2022 Western & Southern Open.

Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week (August 15th, 2022)

ATP – Western & Southern Open – Cincinnati, Ohio

Nick Kyrgios vs. Alejandro Davidovich Fokina

Underdog Alejandro Davidovich Fokina hasn’t played since falling in the first round at the National Bank Open presented by Rogers. Diego Schwartzman beat Fokina in 3 sets. Nick Kyrgios made it to the National Bank Open quarterfinals before bowing out in a match against Herbert Hurkacz. It feels like Kyrgios is being overplayed in this. Fokina is a good tennis player. So grabbing the +4 makes sense.

Tennis Betting Pick: Alejandro Davidovich Fokina +4 -111

Pablo Carreno Busta vs. Miomir Kecmanovic

Favorite Pablo Carreno Busta heads to Cincinnati playing his best tennis of the year. Busta beat Herbert Hurkacz 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 at the National Bank Open Finals to win his first singles title of 2022. Busta hopes to make it 2 straight championships. Doing so requires taking down a tough opponent in the first round at the Western & Southern Open. Miomir Kecmanovic didn’t last past the first round at the National Bank Open. But the 22-year-old is 26-19 in singles matches this year. Kecmanovic can pull off the upset win.

Tennis Betting Pick: Miomir Kecmanovic +126

Albert Ramos Vinolas vs. Fabio Fognini

At the National Bank Open, Vinolas pushed Hurkacz big time. The favorite in this match kept coming back. Eventually, Hurkacz won the battle in 5 sets, but Vinolas showed he has what it takes to hang with strong players. Fognini had to qualify for this match. Fabio has won over $800,000 but that’s because he’s taken a couple of doubles titles this season. His single match form leaves something to be desired. The chalk wins.

Tennis Betting Pick: Albert Ramos Vinolas -135

WTA – Western & Southern Open – Cincinnati, Ohio

Cori Gauff vs. Marie Bouzkova

Bouzkova has a single title and a doubles title this season. She has also won 33-of-44 singles matches. But although Bouzkova has played well in 2022, she’s still the dog versus Cori Gauff. Gauff has a couple of doubles titles, is 30-15 in singles matches this season, and pushed Simona Halep to 3 sets at the National Bank Open in her last. Coco will be ready to take this.

Tennis Betting Pick: Cori Gauff -169

Anhelina Kalinina vs. Elise Mertens

The underdog deserves some respect. Kalinina had to qualify for this tournament by beating Lauren Davis and Petra Martic. Beating a player with Martic’s abilities is no easy task. Chalk Elise Mertens has won 6 career titles. She has scored a doubles title this WTA season, but she’s just 18-17 in singles matches. Kalinina can pull off the upset victory.

Tennis Betting Pick: Anhelina Kalinina +122

Beatriz Haddad Maia vs. Jelena Ostapenko

Maia versus Ostapenko projects as one of Tuesday’s most competitive tennis matches. The chalk in this didn’t play great at the National Bank Open. Ostapenko fell to Alison Riske-Armitraj in the second round.

Haddad Maia played all the way to the National Bank Open Finals, losing to Simona Halep via a 3-6, 6-2, 3-6 score. Maia has won a couple of singles titles and a couple of doubles titles in 2022. She is 41-16 in singles matches. The underdog wins.

Tennis Betting Pick: Beatriz Haddad Maia +111
