Great Britain is looking to keep their United Cup 2024 momentum going against the USA. Only this time, the USA certainly has the edge, as my Jessica Pegula vs Katie Boulter predictions will reveal within.

Our favourite Jessica Pegula vs Katie Boulter predictions

It goes without saying that Jessica Pegula is an enormous favourite to take out Katie Boulter in this match. The American is ranked number 5 in the world right now, while Boulter is outside of the top 50. Therefore, the only question is, what markets should you be gunning for ahead of this game? 

That’s where my Pegula vs Boulter predictions enter the picture – as displayed below:

Pegula to win 2-0 @ 4/9 (1.44)

There are a couple of reasons why I am shooting for Pegula to secure a comfortable win against Boulter. Firstly, she’s an established top 5 player, and when she is on form, she has too much power and force for Boulter. Secondly, Pegula finished the 2023 season in style, reaching the finals in the 2023 WTA Finals before losing to Swiatek. 

Under 19.5 games @ 3/4 (1.75)

In my opinion, it’s highly likely that Jessica Pegula will take out Katie Boulter in straight sets, hence the odds for that market being quite short. Yet for those who wish to go for a higher return, the under 19.5 games market is very promising too. Of course, this requires an even more convincing victory for Pegula, but she’s more than capable of dismantling her British opponent.

Jessica Pegula vs Katie Boulter odds

Based on the moneyline odds alone, the probability for Katie Boulter to win here is 16.7%, while the chances for Jessica Pegula to win are 88.9%.

Pegula looking to stomp out Boulter for Team USA

As you may know, the USA won the 2023 edition of the United Cup, and Pegula was rather emphatic in that title run. However, that was a year ago now, and plenty of tennis has occurred since then, which is why the following previews must be given.

Jessica Pegula preview

As my Jessica Pegula vs Katie Boulter predictions above demonstrate, Pegula is expected to breeze past Boulter in Perth. In 2023, she played some phenomenal tennis in Australia too, which shows she likes the conditions down under. And of course, she is number 5 in the world, which is more than 50 places higher than Boulter.

Katie Boulter preview

Katie Boulter has enjoyed some big wins in her career, yet she’s not quite in the same league as Pegula, in my opinion. Furthermore, she has never beaten a player ranked inside the top five in the world, and I can’t see this record changing on December 31st.

Pegula vs Boulter head to head

Although these two players are of a similar age, they have never actually faced one another in an official WTA event. Therefore, the record is completely blank for these two, which is why other elements have been taken into account for my Pegula vs Boulter predictions.
