Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week (July 18th, 2022)
ATP – Gstaad, Switzerland
Richard Gasquet vs. Robert Carballes Baena
Gasquet won a couple of matches at Wimbledon before bowing out in the third round. The 36-year-old is 14-11 in singles matches this season. Robert Carballes Baena is 5-13 in singles matches. The underdog’s Wimbledon run ended in the first round when Jordan Thompson beat Baena 4-6, 6-1, 6-1. The favorite is the play.
Tennis Betting Pick: Richard Gasquet -122
Jaume Munar vs. Bernabe Zapata Miralles
Munar last played during qualifying for the Nordea Open. The favorite in this beat Nicolas Jarry in straight sets. Munar then fell to Pedro Sousa. The chalk in this did win a match at Wimbledon before losing to Cameron Norrie. Munar pushed Norrie hard, stepping off the court after 5 sets. The -179 choice should have no trouble beating Bernabe Zapata Miralles.
Tennis Betting Pick: Jaume Munar -179
Marc-Andrea Huesler vs. Dominic Stricker
Heusler is 0-2 in non-qualifying singles matches this season. The favorite in this beat Fabio Fognini in a qualifying match in his last. Heusler also pushed Hugo Greiner to 7 sets in his lone Wimbledon match. 19-year-old Dominic Stricker lost his second Wimbledon qualifying match versus Stefan Kozlov.
In his first Wimbledon qualifying match, Stricker bested Vitaliy Sachko after that rival retired during the third set. Stricker could turn into a good player. But in this match, Heusler has an experience edge.
Tennis Betting Pick: Marc-Andrea Huesler -213
Hugo Gaston vs. Dominic Thiem
If this were 2020, Dominic Thiem would be a massive favorite. But Thiem had a bad 2021. His 2022 also hasn’t gone as planned. Dominic fell to Sebastian Baez in the quarterfinals at the Nordea Open in his last match played. Thiem didn’t even step onto the grass courts at Wimbledon.
Gaston hasn’t played great. But he’s 9-12 in singles titles this season. The odds don’t correctly reflect the underdog’s chances of winning. Hugo offers overlay odds. So he’s the play.
Tennis Betting Pick: Hugo Gaston +101
WTA – Hamburg, Germany
Elena-Gabriela Ruse vs. Bernarda Pera
Ruse has lost 3 straight first round matches. Ruse fell to Lauren Davis at the Rothesay International Eastbourne. Coco Gauff knocked her out of Wimbledon. Kamilla Rakhimova beat har in the first round at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Bernarda Pera is 18-13 in singles matches this season. Pera lost to Anett Kontaveit in her first Wimbledon match. The favorite in this pushed the 2-seed Kontaveit to a 5-7 first set. Pera has the edge.
Tennis Betting Pick: Bernarda Pera -135
Joanne Zuger +6 vs. Jule Niemeier
Niemeier should beat Zuger. So the real question is will Jule cover the total games spread? Niemeier struggled at the Ladies Open Lausanne. But going back to Wimbledon, Niemeier played great up until the quarterfinals when bowing out to Tatjana Maria. The favorite in this can get back on track. Joanne Zuger isn’t on Jule’s level. Back Niemeier at -6 to cash.
Tennis Betting Pick: Jule Niemeier -6 -108
