Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week (January 15th, 2024)

ATP – 2024 Australian Open Second Round – Melbourne, Australia

  • When: Tuesday, January 16th, 2024

Alexander Zverev vs. Dominik Koepfer

Zverev is 4-1 in singles matches this year. The -6.5 chalk has already pocketed $739,185 because he beat Hubert Hurkacz in the United Cup Final.

Koepfer is a decent tennis player. Still, Zverev is playing on a different level right now. Alexander should cover the game spread.

Tennis Betting Pick: Alexander Zverev -6.5 -154

Jordan Thomas vs. Stefanos Tsitsipas

In his first round match at the Australian Open, Stefanos Tsitsipas struggled to get by Zizou Bergs, losing the first set before rallying to win 3 straight.

Jordan Thompson required 5 sets and a tiebreaker set to beat Aleksandr Vukic. Tsitsipas dusted Bergs 6-1, 6-1, 6-3 in the final three sets. If Tsitsipas keeps it going, he should have on trouble covering this spread.

Tennis Betting Pick: Stefanos Tsitsipas -5.5 -109

Miomir Kecmanovic vs. Jan-Lennard Struff

Kecmanovic versus Struff is one of the most competitive Round 2 matches at this year’s Australian Open. Kecmanovic is a 1-point favorite.

The chalk beat Yosuke Watanuki in his first round matchup. Struff, the 24-seed, played 5 sets and 2 tiebreakers before knocking out Rinky Hijikata. Struff could be too tired to get it done versus Kecmanovic. Give the slight dog the nod.

Tennis Betting Pick: Miomir Kecmanovic -110

WTA – 2024 Australian Open Second Round – Melbourne, Australia

  • When: Tuesday, January 16th, 2024

Laura Seigemund vs. Storm Hunter

35-year-old Laura Seigemund faced a 17-seed Ekaterina Alexandrova in the first round. Seigemund beat Alexandrova 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (11-9).

For her efforts, Seigemund faces Storm Hunter, a 6-4, 6-3 winner over Sara Errani in her first round matchup. Hunter is playing terrific tennis and is warmed up after having to qualify for theAussie Open. Backing the underdog makes sense.

Tennis Betting Pick: Storm Hunter +142

Lesya Tsurenko vs. Rebeka Masarova

After losing the first set in her first round match versus Lucia Bronzetti, Lesya Tsurenko rallied winning the second set 7-5 and the third set 6-3.

Rebeka Masarova bested a talented player in Aliaksandra Sasnovich in her first contest. Tsurenko should win this, but Masarova offers a decent enough payout for a look. Here’s another where backing the underdog is the better play.

Tennis Betting Pick: Rebeka Masarova +156

Marta Kostyuk vs. Elise Mertens

Kostyuk versus Mertens should be a fantastic matchup. Kostyuk, the slight underdog in this, beat Claire Liu 6-3, 4-6, 6-1 in her Round 1 match.

Elise Mertens was up 2-0 over Maya Sherif in the second set before Sherif decided to retire from the match. Mertens is 5-2 in singles matches this year. Kostyuk won’t go down without a fight, but beating Mertens this early in the Australian Open doesn’t seem possible.

Tennis Betting Pick: Elise Mertens -161
