Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week (October 3rd, 2022)
ATP – Tokyo, Japan
Frances Tiafoe vs. Bernabe Zapata Miralles
The underdog in this match played a great first contest. Bernabe Zapata Miralles beat Taro Daniel 7-5, 7-5. Miralles pushed his singles record to 8-12 on the season.
U.S. Open semifinalist Frances Tiafoe also played a great first match. Tiafoe beat Yasutaka Uchiyama 6-3, 6-4. The match was Tiafoe’s first since losing the Laver Cup Finals to Stefanos Tsitsipas. The odds difference isn’t as vast as expected. Tiafoe is the play.
Tennis Betting Pick: Frances Tiafoe -323
Denis Shapovalov vs. Steve Johnson
32-year-old American Steve Johnson has gone 15-15 in singles matches this season. Johnson required a tiebreaker set to get by Jisung Nam in the first round. But Johnson did win. So the dog will have confidence heading into this. Favorite Denis Shapovalov has pocketed over 2 million already this year. He heads into this playing well, having taken on Yoshihito Nishioka in the Korea Open Tennis Championships Final in his last. Shapovalov should get it done.
Tennis Betting Pick: Denis Shapovalov -370
WTA – Ostrava, Czech Republic
Karolina Muchova vs. Beatriz Haddad Maia
The odds say it all. Muchova and Haddad Maia should play one of the most competitive matches and the Agel Open this week. Muchova is a Czech Republic native. So she should home court advantage over her opponent.
But Haddad Maia has gone 47-21 this season. Beatriz has won 2 singles titles and a couple of doubles titles. She gets the nod.
Tennis Betting Pick: Beatriz Haddad Maia -110
Jelena Ostapenko vs. Aliaksandra Sasnovich
This is Aliaksandra Sasnovich’s first tournament since the U.S. Open. In the final major of the year, Sasnovich won her first round match but then lost in her second round contest.
Jelena Ostapenko played great at the Hana Bank Korea Open, falling in the finals to Ekaterina Alexandrova. Then in her next tournament, Ostapenko lost in the first round. Jelena should bounce back with a winning effort.
Tennis Betting Pick: Jelena Ostapenko -185
Emma Raducanu vs. Daria Kasatkina
In her last, Raducanu made it all the way to the Hana Bank Korea Open semifinals. Jelena Ostapenko ended Raducanu’s Korea Open run. Daria Kasatkina hasn’t played since the U.S. Open. Kasatkina is the favorite because she has won a couple of singles titles this season. Raducanu’s recent form suggests she can win this.
Tennis Betting Pick: Emma Raducanu +123
Shelby Rogers vs. Barbora Krejcikova
Barbora Krejcikova is playing great tennis. The chalk in this steps onto the court after winning the Talinn Open in her last. Shelby Rogers failed to make it past the first round at the Talinn Open.
But Rogers has the talent to bounce back. Also, there’s a chance the favorite bounces after winning her first singles title of the season.
Tennis Betting Pick: Shelby Rogers +152
