Roland Garros 2018: Men's side, it's Nadal side
Without Federer and without Tsonga, the Roland Garros tournament should be a health walk for Rafael Nadal. As we said in our article bet like a pro tennis, the surface is an essential criterion. The clay is the garden of Rafael Nadal. If you want to test the bets on tennis, know that Nadal won 10 Roland Garros and this season he won three tournaments on clay over four played. It is no longer a favorite, it is a scarecrow.
If you want to bet on Nadal's “Rafa” matches, you will have to scratch the types of bets and wait for the end of the first laps. Why ?
Well let's take his first game on Bwin Sports Paris :
Nadal 1,01 - 14 Simone Bolelli
The only interesting bet is undoubtedly on the 6-0 for the 1st set at 7.00. Nadal won all his sets during the Roland Garros in 2017!
The risk is therefore large. You see that for this kind of match, it is difficult to find the balance between risk and gain.
Let's see the outsiders:
Dominic Thiem who is not yet known in the general public has caused a sensation in the world of the yellow ball. He released Nadal in Rome in 2017 and, exploits, on his lands in Madrid this season. Is he able to bring down the king? Specialists doubt his ability to chain matches. He has just won the ATP Lyon tournament a few days before Roland. In any case, he is a player to follow in a table that should test him.
Djokovic is recovering from his elbow operation. And yes if you do not follow tennis and you watch the Djoko ranking, you will see it in 20th position. It is not that he declined, but above all because he was injured. His return strengthens respect with a half-final lost against Nadal in Rome. Djokovic had to be a major player, but probably a little just to delight the title to the Spanish.
Zverev, 3rd in the ATP ranking has just beaten Thiem in a half-final of the Rome tournament and did not go far from overthrowing Nadal in the final. For us, it's a serious outsider.
On the men's side, you can follow his players to secure your bets. Nadal is so magical to Roland Garros, in good shape this season, that his victory seems inevitable. And as you know the inevitable is very poorly paid for by bookmakers;
I hear you ! And the American?
At your own risk. Tsonga Out, he remains Monfils for the hopes of a beautiful journey. For the others, that is to say Lucas Pouille, Richard Gasquet, Benoît Paire, Adrian Mannarino, Gilles Simon, Jérémy Chardy or Pierre-Hugues Herbert, do not wait too much to follow them because except miracle, nobody Wait to see them in a quarter.
Roland Garros 2018: Women's side, Elina Svitolina?
The female tournament is much more open. The Ogress Serena Williams returns from pregnancy and will not be a protective being only 9th seeded. As much to tell you, it will breathe and this is the kind of challenge that the champion is likely.
Play surprise on such a champion, it's daring, but on the other hand, bet on a defeat against a surprise opponent, it is trying. The Bookmakers will necessarily play on the name and not necessarily on the current reality of a young mother who tries a blow with a return to clay.
Elina Svitolina, world 4th, can be the right option. Finalist in Rome, she simply impressed in the Eternal Capital by taking out the number 1 Halep. The Ukrainian has clearly put himself forward and will therefore have to play with this role of Outsider number one on the ocher of Roland Garros 2018.
Simona Halep is obviously part of the share of players capable of going to pick up her first Roland. The number one, unhappy finalist last season, clearly put this tournament on its calendar.
The WTA Roland Garros 2018 tournament therefore has the advantage of being more disputed. It is therefore an opportunity to optimize your odds while focusing on its players who should chain matches until the 8th when outsiders will meet.
And double? To be completely transparent, we do not have the knowledge to bet on the double tournament of Roland Garros.
Roland Garros 2018 will attract bettors like every year. Be careful, watch the matches of the first round to get an idea of the forms.
