2018 Davis Cup Predictions: Serbia vs USA Betting Tips

This Serbian team looks to be lacking the quality other Serbian teams have had in the past and that is something the US can take advantage of. Plus, looking at the stats, this might be the best tennis bet for today! Serbia have just two players in the top 100, and they are Dusan Lajovic at 84 and Laslo Djere at 88, so neither are huge talents. The rest of the team is ranked lower down and they are going to have to find some huge performances between them if they are to stop the Americans. Another thing they lack is a specialist doubles player, and that is going to make it tough for them to strongly compete and win any points this week.

The USA look to be one of the strongest teams in the entire competition, they have an outstanding set of four, and any of them can come out and beat most players in the world. Sam Querrey leads them as the number 12 seed, but not too far behind him is John Isner, who is ranked 18. Sam Querrey betting tips show that he’s in great shape though. That one-two punch is as good as any you will see elsewhere and will be the reason for their success should they have it. They also come with a specialist doubles player in the form of Ryan Harrison, he is a good singles player ranked at 43rd but he’s ranked 19th in the doubles rankings, making him an extremely valuable asset to the team. There is little to choose from the top US players, they have a great team full of depth and should go very close to winning the 2018 Davis Cup.

The Serbians lack a true star to carry their team, and they come up against one of the strongest teams in the competition at the first stage. That makes things extremely tough for them, and we can see nothing other than a comfortable USA victory in this one. This might actually be one of the best Davis Cup World Group bets! The Americans have quality all over the court, and with a specialist doubles player on their side too, they could whitewash the Serbians, their superiority looks to be that much in this one. An uphill task is ahead for the Serbians, and the US should win this tie comfortably.
