Davis Cup Betting Odds & Bookmakers

So here it is. The final is upon us – Maran Cilic and his Croatian counterparts do battle with the astoundingly strong force of the French.

France’s impressive semi-final victory over Spain in September saw Richard Gasquet, Nicolas Mahut, Benoit Paire and Lucas Mouille all line up for the French in the singles, and it’s the 24-year-old Lucas Pouille who’s ranked highest, standing at number 19 in the world. Pouille also has a pretty successful Davis Cup record too winning the fifth and final rubber in 2017’s final, but it’ll be interesting to see who plays for the French this time around, because Paire, who performed so well in the last round, doesn’t have a great record on clay – he’s 6 wins and 6 losses at the French Open, 1-3 at Madrid, and 7-4 at Monte Carlo. Gasquet in comparison is 26-15 at the French, 12-10 at Madrid, and 18-10 at Monte Carlo, while Paire is 8-9, 4-6, and 4-5.

There’ll be no such selection dilemmas for the Croatians, though. Both Marin Cilic and Borna Coric have had magnificent year’s on the ATP Tour across 2018 and both players sit higher in the rankings than any Frenchman – Cilic is number 6 in the world, Coric is number 13, plus both have a decent records on clay: Cilic is 24-12 at the French, 8-9 at Madrid, 13-10 at Monte Carlo, while the 21-year-old Coric is 7-4 at the French, 6-3 at Madrid, and 1-4 at Monte Carlo.

Doubles will be close. The French pairing of Pierre Highes-Hebert and Nicolas Mahut won the French Open earlier this year and sit at number 8th in this year’s rankings, but Croatian Mate Pavic won the Australian Open at the beginning of 2018 while his compatriot Nikola Mektic is the 13th best doubles player in the world.

After looking at the teams, you have to give Croatia the edge in terms of player quality, but with the French having home advantage, they currently have a slight edge in the bookmaker odds.

Home crowd or no home crowd, though, Croatia have to be a good bet. No matter how vociferous that Lille crowd are.

It’s set to be one great final.
