Davis Cup 2019 betting is incredibly competitive, with very little between the leading contenders.
As the host nation, Spain is understandably the bookies favourites going into the tournament, but there are plenty of other teams in contention when it comes to Davis Cup 2019 predictions & betting odds.
Other teams that are strongly fancied are France (the top-ranked nation in the world), Croatia (the defending champions), USA, Australia, Serbia, Russia, Germany and Argentina.
With there being very little between the top teams in the Davis Cup 2019 betting odds, it means there’s potentially some great value available in picking the winning nation.
In addition to outright betting on the Davis Cup 2019 winners, there is also betting available on the winners of the six groups.
Once the tournament begins, there will be betting available on the outcome of all the group matches and all the individual matches (singles and doubles) within the groups. There will also be plenty of betting markets available on all the individual matches.
As things stand, these are the best available odds on the Davis Cup 2019 outright market with the leading sportsbooks:
Davis Cup 2019 betting looks wide open going into the tournament.
Spain are favourites and any team with Rafael Nadal and Roberto Bautista Agut has to be considered a strong contender, particularly on home soil. However, they are drawn in a desperately tough group alongside defending champions Croatia and a very decent looking Russian team.
Group B is very much the “Group of Death” at Davis Cup 2019 and there’s every possibility that only one of those teams will progress to the quarter-finals. It doesn’t seem sensible to back any of those three teams at this stage with so much doubt.
That being the case, the best tips to win Davis Cup 2019 might be France. The French were Davis Cup runners-up in 2018 and winners in 2017, so they know what’s required to win the tournament.
France captain Sebastien Grosjean has a team with a wealth of experience, consisting of Gael Monfils, Benoit Paire, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut. In addition, the draw looks to have been relatively kind to them, pitching them alongside Serbia and Japan in Group A.
France can be backed at +500 (6.00) with Sports Interaction to win Davis Cup 2019.
Those patriotic fans backing Canada are putting their faith in a talented team of players who are capable of beating anyone on their day. They certainly look worth backing to win Group F ahead of the USA and Italy.
There is a new format in place this year for the tournament, with Davis Cup Finals 2019 taking place over the course of a single one week from 18 to 24 November 2019 on the indoor hard courts at La Caja Mágica in Madrid, Spain.
Davis Cup 2019 will be comprised of 18 teams – 12 qualifiers, the previous year’s four semi-finalists and two wild card nations. All ties will be contested in a best-of-three rubbers format and will be played over the course of one day. Each tie will consist of two singles followed by a doubles.
The 18 teams will be split into six round-robin groups of three teams, with each of the group winners plus the two second-placed teams (based on the teams with the best records of sets and games won) will qualify for the quarter-finals. At that stage the tournament will switch to a knockout format.
The draw for the six groups is as follows:
Canada are currently the 14th ranked team in the world and qualified for the Davis Cup Finals after youngsters Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime fought back for a 3-2 victory over Slovakia in their qualifier tie in Bratislava.
The draw for Canada at Davis Cup 2019 places them in Group F, alongside the USA and Italy. Canada has never previously beaten the USA, but this team looks capable of changing that.
Canadian captain Frank Dancevic has a talented team at his disposal, consisting of Milos Raonic, Auger-Aliassime, Shapovalov and Vasek Pospisil. They can compete against anyone in Madrid.
The group stage ties see them start against Italy on November 18, followed by the USA one day later.
These are the best available odds on Group F as things stand:
