Opening round action continues across Dubai, Delray Beach and Marseille on Tuesday, and we have selected our top three betting tips!
Angelique Kerber vs Barbora Strycova, WTA Dubai R1 (Strycova not to win a set at 1.70 on NairaBet)
After a disappointing 2017, Angelique Kerber has been back to her best this year, winning twelve of her 14 matches so far this season.
Kerber takes on Czech, Barbora Strycova in Dubai on Tuesday, looking to continue her resurgent start to 2018. The German has won five of her six previous matches against Strycova, and is 4-0 against the Czech on hard courts.
Back Kerber to continue her dominance over Strycova on Tuesday. There are several markets for this match on Naira Bet, but our favourite is “Strycova not to win a set”, which is at a very generous 1.70!
Denis Shapovalov vs Ivo Karlovic, ATP Delray Beach R1 (Karlovic to win at 2.05 at NairaBet)
At 2.05 on Naira Bet, Karlovic is an excellent pick. The giant Croatian is coming off a quarter final in New York, and is very comfortable on the Delray Beach terrain, having won the title in 2015. Shapovalov, who enjoyed a breakthrough season last year, is a fantastic talent, but he is still very much learning his trade, and has not won back-to-back this season. We are backing the experienced Karlovic to take out the youngster on Tuesday.
Karen Khachanov vs Ruben Bemelmans, ATP Marseille R1 (Khachanov to win at 1.50 on NairaBet)
We find Khachanov at 1.50 to beat Ruben Bemelmans strangely attractive indeed. The Russian world number 47 has already made quarter finals in Auckland and Montpellier this season, and should surely be too good for the 113th-ranked Bemelmans, who has won just two main draw matches all year!
