All roads lead to the Rogers Arena in Vancouver as the Laver Cup kicks off this week. The tournament is named after eight-time grand slam champion Rod Laver, and will be contested between some of the best players in the World. The best players from Europe will take on the best players from the rest of the world in a three-day competition on indoor hard courts. Keeping that in mind, we’ll cover our Laver Cup predictions in this article.

- 3 Frequently asked questions about the Laver Cup
To be fair, Team Europe have dominated previous editions of this tournament. This is the sixth edition of the Laver Cup, and the Europeans have won four of five titles. However, it’s important to point out that they had players like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic for most of those events. Those players will not feature at this year’s competition. It’s also worth mentioning that Team World emerged victorious in the previous edition of this tournament; and for this reason, we believe they’ll successfully defend their title.
Laver Cup 2023 betting tips
these are our Laver Cup predictions for today:
Casper Ruud vs Taylor Fritz – Fritz to win @ 4/5 (1.80)
It’s worth mentioning that Casper Ruud and Taylor Fritz clashed just once, at the Nitto ATP Tour Finals last year. Although Casper Ruud won that match, he needed a third set tiebreak in order to do so. That said, we’ve been impressed by Taylor Fritz’s recent run of results; he reached the quarter-final of the US Open earlier this month, and has five straight sets victories in his last six matches. On the other hand, Casper Ruud has not been very consistent lately; having lost three of his last five matches. All things considered, we are leaning towards Taylor Fritz for the win.
Andrey Rublev vs Frances Tiafoe – Tiafoe to win @ 11/10 (2.10)
We would like to point out that this will be the fourth clash between Andrey Rublev and Frances Tiafoe; and their previous three skirmishes were all in big tournaments. That said, the American currently leads the head-to-head between these players, having won two of their three clashes. As a matter of fact, the last time these players met was at the US Open last year, and it was Tiafoe who came out on top in three straight sets. Given that Andrey Rublev suffered a straight sets loss at the hands of Taylor Fritz yesterday, we are backing Frances Tiafoe to win this match.
Hubert Hurkacz vs Felix Auger-Aliassime – Auger-Aliassime to win a set @ 4/6 (1.67)
It’s fair to note that Hubert Hurkacz lost in straight sets to Frances Tiafoe yesterday. The Polish ace has struggled to find his best form of late, losing three of his last five singles matches. To be fair, Felix Auger-Aliassime has also had his fair share of struggles these past few months. However, he leads the head-to-head between these players, having won two of their three previous encounters in straight sets. Despite being the underdog today, we believe the Canadian will do just enough to take at least one set.
