2019 Fever-Tree Championships Betting Odds, Prediction & Preview

As the opening grass tournaments of the season finish up, in Stuttgart and the Netherlands, two more are about to kick off in London and Halle and both tournaments have great fields for the upcoming week.

In London, Marin Cilic returns looking to defend his 2018 title run and lift his third title at the Queen’s Club, but six other top 20 players come to London looking to knock off the champ. Seven of last season’s quarterfinalists, and all four semifinalists, return to the 2019 edition looking to defend the points they earned here in 2018. The semifinal matchups last season were Marin Cilic, who was the #1 seed, took on unseeded Nick Kyrgios and unseeded Jeremy Chardy took on unseeded Novak Djokovic. Cilic was able to get past Kyrgios, 7-6(3) 7-6(4), and Djokovic got by Chardy 7-6(5) 6-4. In the final it was Cilic who lifted the title after beating Djokovic 5-7 7-6(4) 6-3.

This season Marin Cilic enters as the #5 seed, Jeremy Chardy enters as the last direct entrant, Nick Kyrgios is unseeded and Djokovic is not playing.

Semifinal and Championship Prediction

 The first semifinal will be #1 Stefanos Tsitsipas vs #3 Juan Martin Del Potro. I really like Tsitsipas to bounce back after a disappointing second round loss in Hertogenbosch last week. Tsitsipas will take out Kyle Edmund in the first round, Jeremy Chardy in the second round and Grigor Dimitrov in the quarters. Juan Martin Del Potro, the betting favorite this week, will start his week with a win over Denis Shapovalov before beating Marton Fucsovics in the second round and #6 Milos Raonic in the quarterfinals.

The second semifinal will be #5 Marin Cilic vs #7 Stan Wawrinka. Marin Cilic will get close to defending his championship points from last season with wins over Cristian Garin, Diego Schwartzman and #4 Daniil Medvedev. Stan Wawrinka will take out Britain’s Dan Evans, in the first round, before beating Frances Tiafoe in the second round and #2 Kevin Anderson in the quarters.

The final will be #3 Juan Martin Del Potro vs #7 Stan Wawrinka and I like Stan Wawrinka to lift the 2019 Fever-Tree Championships trophy.
