Tennis Predictions Today: Our Best Bets for 09/12/2022

Tennis is one of the most popular sports to bet on. So naturally, we wanted to create a ‘go-to’ for punters wanting tennis betting tips. That’s precisely what you’ll get on this page, but this is just the very beginning. Of course, we aim to pump out tennis predictions today, and every other day for that matter. But there are other sites in the game that also do this. Therefore, there has to be something that separates our site from the rest!

Tennis Prediction Today The Best Bets and Predictions

And we like to think that we do things better than others due to many key reasons. Firstly, we have a team that has years of experience with tennis betting. Secondly, because we have a sizable team, we can cover tournaments all the way from Grand Slam to 250 level. And thirdly, we get creative with our picks. After all, the main markets don’t always serve up the best odds or the best value.

This is the general overview of what you can expect from this page and our site. However, to really get a sense of the value we are serving up, we need to get a little more specific.

The Best Tennis Predictions Today

Alcaraz to Win 2-0

At 31 years old, Grigor Dimitrov is still at a great level, but he is still not back to his best, which helped him to become number 3 in the ATP ranking some time ago. Facing the current world No. 1 will not be an easy task for the Bulgarian tennis player. Carlos Alcaraz needs to advance a couple more rounds to secure his place at the top of the rankings. We think the Spanish player will win in two sets, as he did in the previous round.

Alcaraz vs Dimitrov Preview

The Bulgarian had little trouble defeating Fabio Fognini in the round of 32, as Dimitrov indicated from the first set which would be the outcome of the feature after winning. On the other hand, Alcaraz did what it took to knock Yoshihito Nishioka out of the ATP Paris Masters. The number 1 on the ATP ranking needed only two sets to get the victory.

Odds: Alcaraz 1/3 (1.33) – Dimitrov 21/10 (3.10)

Carlos Alcaraz vs Grigor Dimitrov is scheduled at 12:15

Lorenzo Musetti vs Casper Ruud Prediction:

Ruud to Win

We have to go back to 2019 to remember the only clash between Musetti and Ruud, who met at the Rome Open. That was the first year of the Italian tennis player was a professional. Casper Ruud did not hesitate to give a good performance to defeat a young Musetti who was only 17 years old. Although three years have passed and the Italian is a more mature player, Ruud plays better than he did three years ago, so we expect him to win again..

Musetti vs Ruud Preview:

Musetti had to beat two opponents to reach this round. His first opponent was Marin Cilic, who is not at his best moment but always a fearsome opponent. The second one was much easier, as his opponent is not even in the top 100 of the ATP ranking. On the other hand, Casper Ruud only played one match at the ATP Paris Masters, in which he defeated veteran Richard Gasquet in straight sets.

Odds: Musetti 6/5 (2.20) – Ruud 3/5 (1.60)

Lorenzo Musetti vs Casper Ruud is scheduled at 10:15

Holger Rune vs Andrey Rublev Prediction

Rublev to Win

This is the first Rune vs Rublev in history, but we will probably see this feature more often. Rune comes into this match at a great time, having reached the final game in each of the three previous tournaments in which he participated. Unfortunately, Holger Rune has lost two finals to players in the top 10 of the ATP rankings, so we think Andrey Rublev will defeat Rune.

Rune vs Rublev Preview:

The Russian tennis player had a great victory against John Isner in the previous round. Only 1 hour elapsed in this duel that had only two sets. Unlike his rival, Holger Rune defeated two opponents to play this round. The Danish tennis player first defeated Wawrinka in three sets, and then Hurkacz in straight sets.

Odds: Rune 6/5 (2.20) – Rublev 3/5 (1.60)

Holger Rune vs Andrey Rublev is scheduled at 14:15

These odds were correct at the time of writing. We recommend checking with the bookmaker before placing the bet.

Our Tennis Predictions – What We Cover

We did say that we’d be getting specific! So now, while you can see a bunch of free tennis betting tips already, let us break down the events covered and what markets you can expect to find.

Tournaments Covered

For starters, we should mention that we cover both the WTA and ATP Tour-level events. And as you may be aware, there are sanctioned events taking place all over the world on almost a weekly basis. However, to give you a precise insight, let us provide an overview of each tournament level so you know what to keep an eye on:

Grand Slams

As the highest level of competition on both the ATP and WTA Tour, this is where our tennis predictions tend to go into overdrive. There are four slams each and every year, starting with the Australian Open in January. This is followed by the French Open, Wimbledon, and finally, the US Open in September.

Masters 1000

Compared with the four Grand Slam events mentioned above, the Masters 1000 events are far more frequent. As you may have guessed, this is the next level down from the slams in terms of prestige. And they are still huge events that tend to attract all of the top players in the world. The ATP Tour has nine of these events each year, whereas the WTA Tour has ten.

500 Events

Dropping a little further down the ladder now we have 500 events. Much like the top two tiers, these are played all around the globe. There are a total of 13 500-level events for the men’s tour, and more than 10 on the WTA Tour (subject to change). So of course, this means that you can expect plenty of tennis predictions today when these events are held.

250 Events

There are close to 40 ATP 250 events held on an annual basis, and 40+ WTA 250 events. How about that for frequency? Of course, we cover key matches from these events constantly.

Betting Markets

Remember what we said about the best value not always being found in the main markets? Well, we weren’t kidding around. And that’s why you’ll notice that many of our tips don’t always focus on the individual match winner. However, there are key markets that we tend to focus on more than others:

Tournament Outright

If a major event is approaching, you may find that we have a selection of tournament outright options. These are markets that focus on the winner of the event. And you usually get great odds (even for the favourite) for Grand Slams and Masters – hence why we cover this angle.

Set betting

There are two ways that we make predictions based on set betting. The first is to bet on the outcome of a match in terms of sets. For example, we might bet on a game to end 2-0 or 3-0 in favour of one player. And secondly, we sometimes whip up tips on handicap set betting. This angle looks at betting on an over/under basis for the number of sets in total.

Individual match winner

We know – we said that this market doesn’t always have the best odds. But that doesn’t mean that it never has appealing odds! And with tennis only having two possible outcomes, it’s a market that cannot be ignored.

Number of games

In tennis, the scoring system itself makes the ‘number of games’ market pretty appealing. Again, this is usually done on an under/over basis. And the reason we look at this market is that you can usually get great odds. This is the case because it’s a tougher market to predict correctly compared with individual winners.

Tennis Betting Tips – How We Create Them

Finally, we wish to give you an insight into how we come up with our various tennis predictions today. After all, anyone could take a glance at some bookmaker options and publish them as ‘tips’. However, this wouldn’t make them trustworthy or valuable for the reader. So let us give you a behind-the-curtain view:

Form

Like most sports, you have to look at form as a primary indicator for which way a match might swing. This is all the more important for an individual sport like tennis, as confidence plays a key role in a players’ performance.

Head to head

Because there are many different playing styles in tennis, the head-to-head record is important. This can sometimes reveal that a low-ranked player has a good record against a higher-ranked opponent purely because of playing style. At the same time, a dominant head-to-head record could indicate the potential outcome of a game

Surface suitability

Tennis is one of the few sports that is played on multiple surfaces. And again, this must be looked at when creating predictions. A key example would be Rafael Nadal on clay. Because of his style, he is always a heavy favourite, even if he isn’t in great form.
