2019 Davis Cup Betting Tips

The final tennis tournament for 2019 kicks off shortly and it promises to be a cracker. The Davis Cup is a bit different to the tournaments we usually cover here at BYB, but we’ve done the rounds and believe we’ve got some great bets for you to follow throughout this week-long tournament. Check them out below and good luck to everyone following!

2019 Davis Cup Betting Tips

Before we get into our best bets, here’s what the Davis Cup is all about. 

What is it? The 2019 Davis Cup will be the 108th edition of the Davis Cup, a tournament between national teams in men's tennis.

When is it? It’s a week-long tournament with play on dates as follows:

Group stage: 19–22 November (6 groups of 3 teams)
Quarterfinals: 22–23 November (6 group winners + 2 best second placed teams)
Semi-finals: 24 November
Final: 25 November

Who’s competing? There are 18 nations in the finals and the groups are as follows:

Group A: France, Serbia, Japan
Group B: Croatia, Spain, Russia
Group C: Argentina, Germany, Chile
Group D: Belgium, Australia, Columbia
Group E: Great Britain, Kazakhstan, Netherlands
Group F: USA, Italy, Canada

How are ties decided? Each Davis Cup tie will be decided on a best of three rubbers basis with two singles matches and one doubles match.

Now, let’s get stuck into our best bets!

Outright Winner

There are five nations with single figure quotes before you get out to the long(er) shots at $13+. Spain, led by Rafa Nadal, lead the favouritism at around $3.50 but are too short for our liking. The other four at single figures are France ($6), Australia ($7), Serbia ($8) and Russia ($9). Of the five, we’re keen to back France to take it out at what we believe are gernerous odds. The French won the Davis Cup just two years ago and were the runners-up to Croatia last year. They’ve got a stacked team that includes #10 ranked Gael Monfils, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (#29) and Benoit Pair (#28) and have been drawn in a group they should have no problem advancing from.

Group C Winner 

Group C looks to be a two-horse race between Argentina and Germany, who are drawn alongside Chile. Germany will be without world #7 Alexander Zverev, which is a huge blow to their Cup hopes. Instead, Jan-Lennard Struff (#36) and veteran Phillipe Kohlschreiber (#79) will be leaned on heavily in the singles. We favour the Diego Schwartzman (#11) led Argentina to advance as the winners here. Schwartzman has had a career year and will be joined by the inform Guido Pella (#20), Leonardo Mayer and #3 ranked doubles player Horacio Zeballos. They’ve got a sneaky good team and we see them as great value to finish on top of Group C.

Group B Winner

Our value play for the Davis Cup will be Croatia to top Group B at a huge price ($10). They’ve been drawn alongside favourites Spain and the talented Russia in what has been labelled the Group of Death. Croatia may be the big underdogs here, but we believe they have a squad that is more than capable of causing an upset. They won the Davis Cup in 2018 and while they will be without Marin Cilic this time around, they’re still led by a very talented Borna Coric (#15). The Croat’s also have some very capable double players with the likes of Nikola Metkic (#15) Ivan Dodig (#12) and Mate Pavic (#20) who form, in our opinion, the strongest doubles team in the group. If Coric can take care of one of the singles matches and the doubles team win their doubles like we expect, then Croatia are a big chance to top Group B.
