Here’s a look at Davis Cup betting odds 2022 for the favorite outright winner:
For those looking to place online bets on tennis, five teams are neck and neck heading into this year’s Davis Cup 2022 Finals. Croatia and Canada are joint favorites, with USA and Spain just behind and Italy nipping at their heels as well. The remaining three teams – Australia, Netherlands, and Germany – are well off the pace, with odds between 13.00 and 21.00.
The Davis Cup is one of the tennis calendar’s oldest and most historical events.
Dating back 122 years, the event began when Great Britain and America decided to have a tournament between the two countries to decide who was better at tennis. Now, with 109 editions having occurred since 1900, the Davis Cup has evolved to be an expansive event incorporating the majority of tennis-playing nations worldwide, with upwards of 135 participants competing for the top prize.
Across the history of Davis Cup tennis, the most successful teams in this tournament are:
However, most recently, here’s how the past five editions of the Davis Cup have unfolded:
It has been a decade since a nation was able to defend their title, with the Czech Republic winning in 2012 and 2013. However, this record will have to wait at least another year, with Russia and Belarus barred from this year’s event due to the war conflict in Ukraine. Who will step up and claim the Davis Cup crown in 2022?
Looking at the betting apps’ odds for the Davis Cup 2022, here are some of the results we think are the most likely, and represent the best bets to make this week:
While the USA are not quite the favorite in this event, they sit just behind Croatia and Canada in the odds and are level with Spain on 5.00 (4/1).
However, the USA has a very strong team this year and is well-positioned to claim their first Davis Cup crown since 2007. Under the leadership of Mardy Fish, the USA will be represented by Taylor Fritz, Frances Tiafoe, Tommy Paul, and Jack Sock. Both Taylor Fritz and Frances Tiafoe have had breakout years. Thus, Fritz won his first Masters 1000, beating Rafael Nadal en route and making his Nitto ATP Finals debut last week, where he made the semifinals and pushed eventual champion, Novak Djokovic, all the way 7-6, 7-6. Tiafoe, on the other hand, made his inaugural Grand Slam semifinal appearance at the US Open 2022 and has been a regular in the men’s Top 20 this year.
Combine these two excellent singles players with the doubles might of Jack Sock, who has won two titles this year and has been as high as World No.2 in doubles previously, and the USA have an imposing team this week. A bet on them to make a deep run and claim the silverware would not be remiss at 5.00 (4/1).
With five teams all neck and neck in the odds to win the Davis Cup 2022, there was always going to be one tough quarterfinal.
Croatia vs Spain is as tough as it gets in the Davis Cup Finals, with these two sides each winning the event in the past year. However, Croatia will benefit from the resurgent form of Marin Cilic and Borna Coric in 2022, who have both had their best seasons in some time. The two are ranked No.17 and No.26, with Coric winning the Cincinnati Masters 1000 a few months ago and Cilic making two Grand Slam semifinals this year. Add to this that Nikola Mektic and Mate Pavic, Wimbledon 2022 runners-up, will step on the court to play Croatia’s doubles matches, and they are a force to be reckoned with.
On the other hand, Spain is without the top two Spaniards in the world, Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz. Though their representatives are no novices, with Pablo Carreno Busta and Roberto Bautista Agut spearheading their effort, these two seem outmatched by the power of Croatia in what should be a hard-fought battle that ends in Croatia advancing.
For a bet that is a little riskier, but offers a higher return, here’s our bonus bet for this year’s Davis Cup Finals:
The men from down under are the second most successful Davis Cup team in history, despite not having won the event in 19 years.
Captained by former World No.1 Lleyton Hewitt and led on the court by Australian No.1 Alex de Minaur, the Aussies are ready to leave it all out there this week. De Minaur is undefeated in Davis Cup play this year and knows how to punch above his weight when it comes to the big occasion. While 23-year-old De Minaur has been critical in the singles, Australia has some strong doubles players in support, with Thanasi Kokkinakis, Matt Ebden, and Max Purcell all ranked in the World’s Top 33 doubles players currently.
While Australia may not be the number one choice to win the Davis Cup, they are always an outside chance at the title. They’ll head to Spain this year with absolutely nothing to lose, and a team that has won the title 28 times and swinging freely is always one to keep an eye on. This is a decent bet to take at 13.00 (12/1) odds by Australian bookies.
This week, 2022’s final tennis event of the year will play out before the players head into their off-season. Eight teams come together to decide who will be crowned the Davis Cup Champion for 2022, and it looks like it will be a tight one. We think the USA have a good chance to grab their first title since 2007, but you’ll need to tune in to see how this event unfolds over the next five days.
