2021 Laver Cup Betting Tips & Predictions (September 24-26)
The dates for the fourth edition of the Laver Cup are out now, with the event being held over 3 days from 24-26 September 2021. The TD Garden in Boston, United States, will host some of the top tennis players from across the globe as team World goes up against team Europe.
The Laver Cup was introduced as recently as in 2017. As the name suggests, the tournament is supposed to commemorate Rod Laver – the only person to win all 4 Grand Slams in a single calendar year in the open era. Interestingly, though, the tournament concept was constructed by Roger Federer, who unfortunately was forced to pull out this year due to a knee injury. Still, there are plenty of big names on display, as tennis bookmakers reveal the 2021 Laver Cup betting odds.
With the Laver Cup 2021 odds announcement, tennis sportsbooks have also introduced some free bet offers to make things all that more lucrative. Let’s check out what the tournament has in store for us.

2021 Laver Cup – Team Europe: Info
All 6 players representing Team Europe belong among the top 10 ranked players in the world right now. Except for world number 1 Novak Djokovic, Team Europe also has all of the top 5 players in the world. Spearheaded by world number 2 Daniil Medvedev – the winner of the most recent Grand Slam tournament, the US Open – Team Europe is stacked with players who have made great waves in the world of Tennis this season. Their roster consists of:
- Daniil Medvedev – (2)
- Stefanos Tsitsipas – (3)
- Alexander Zverev – (4)
- Andrey Rublev – (5)
- Matteo Berrettini – (7)
- Casper Ruud – (10)
The backup for Team Europe is 110th ranked Spaniard Feliciano Lopez.
2021 Laver Cup – Team World: Info
Team World, albeit not as strong as Team Europe, does boast of many strong players who can beat any opponent on their day. That being said, the 6 members of Team World have won zero major titles among themselves. Their highest-ranked player, 21-year-old Canadian sensation Felix Auger Aliassime, has still not won a title in his young professional career so far – although he has been to 2 finals this year. The inexperience when it comes to lifting titles among the members of Team World is a big factor to consider when making predictions about the potential winner of the Laver Cup this time around. Their roster has the following names:
- Felix Auger-Aliassime – (11)
- Denis Shapovalov – (12)
- Diego Schwartzman – (15)
- Reilly Opelka – (19)
- John Isner – (22)
- Nick Kyrgios – (95)
The backup for Team World is 164th ranked American Jack Sock.
Laver Cup 2021: Final Prediction
There is always a great deal of enthusiasm surrounding the Laver Cup. Played in the historic location of TD Garden in Boston, there is a lot of pride at stake for the winner of this tournament. While Team Europe is the understandable favorite, here is the prediction we are making regarding the event.
Prediction: Team Europe to win – (-400)
Team Europe has won every single Laver Cup tournament so far, and one look at their roster explains why. The Europeans under Bjorn Borg boast of a plethora of world-class talent in Tennis that Team World can’t replicate to that extent. To put things into perspective, Team Europe’s lowest-ranked player is classified higher than Team World’s highest-ranked player. Admittedly, tennis isn’t played on paper, but the stats rule heavily in favour of the Europeans. The fact that a non-European last won a Grand Slam way back in 2009 is testimony to the gulf in class that exists between the 2 teams. Team Europe should take care of business quite comfortably, even in the absence of Roger Federer.
It’s Team Europe vs. Team World at the Laver Cup! Time to place your bets today!
