2024 Open Sud de France Odds, Picks, and Tennis Betting Analysis

Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming 2024 Open Sud de France tournament so you can bet against ATP betting lines.

Monday, January 29th – Sunday, February 4th, 2024
Sud de France Arena, Montpellier, France
2023 Winner: ATP | Jannik Sinner

 

Open Sud de France Past Winners

Jannik Sinner is the defending champion in Montpellier, but is obviously not in this year’s draw as he just won his first grand slam at the 2024 Australian Open. Sinner beat American Maxime Cressy in straight sets in last year’s final. Alexander Bublik, who has the third-shortest odds to win this year’s tournament, beat Alexander Zverev in the 2022 final. Other past winners include three-time winner Gael Monfils and four-time winner Richard Gasquet. A French player won the tournament in eight of 10 years from 2010 to 2020 – it wasn’t held in 2011.

 

First-Round Betting Previews

Hugo Gaston vs. Denis Shapovalov

ATP Odds: Hugo Gaston +105; Denis Shapovalov -145

Hugo Gaston and Denis Shapovalov are two players with decent potential who have failed to play to their expected levels as of late. Shapovalov, a former world No. 10, is ranked outside of the top-100 after going just 13-13 last season and starting this year 0-2. Gaston, ranked No. 88, is 5-3 this season after qualifying for and reaching the second round at the Australian Open.

They’ve never played against each other in their careers. Gaston has the benefit of the home crowd on his side, while Shapovalov is a player with shattered confidence. He lost both of his matches this year in straight sets and is still apparently dealing with the lingering effects of a knee injury. Gaston to win at plus money is great value.

Flavio Cobolli vs. Gael Monfils

ATP Odds: Flavio Cobolli +19; Gael Monfils -300

While there’s a lot to like about the underdog in the aforementioned match, it’s probably best to play it safe with Monfils in this match. He has never played the 21-year-old Flavio Cobolli in his career, but is a three-time winner in Montpellier and a favorite in France. Cobolli reached the third round at the Australian Open, but is a poor indoor hard court player with a career record of 10-12, whereas Monfils is 153-67 in his career on the surface, including 22-8 over the last four seasons.

Open Sud de France Outright Prediction

As the top seed, the draw isn’t necessarily easy for Rune as he could run into four-time champion Gasquet in the second round. Auger-Aliassime, the third seed, has a decent path to winning his half of the draw and is coming off of a third-round exit in Australia, where he looked to be returning to his 2022 form before losing to eventual finalist Daniil Medvedev.

ATP 250 Betting Prediction for 2023 Open Sud de France
 

Previous Betting News

The ATP Tour has three stops set for this week, with tournaments in France, Argentina, and the United States. The events in Montpellier, France, Dallas, and Texas, are hard-court, indoor tournaments while the event in Cordoba, Argentina, will be played on clay. None of the events include the world’s top-ranked players, such as Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz, Rafael Nadal, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev, and Casper Ruud are either injured or taking time off before the ATP 500 events and Masters events start later this month.

Most of the European-based players are headed for the Open Sud de France in Montpellier, an ATP 250 event. A long-standing event on the tour that dates back decades, the Open Sud de France moved from Lyon to Montpellier, in Southern France, in 2010.

MyBookie has ATP odds on all the tennis action for the week, so let’s take a look at Monday’s action in France.

 

ATP 250 Betting Prediction for 2023 Open Sud de France

When: February 6 to 12, 2023
Where: Montpellier, France

Surface: Hard (Indoor)
Prize Money: €562,815

 

Holger Rune the Top Seed

Ranked ninth in the world, Denmark’s Holger Rune is the top seed at Montpellier. The 19-year-old is 3-2 so far this season, and he lost a 5-set match in the fourth round of the Australian Open to No. 5 seed Andrey Rublev. Rune won three titles last year, including the Stockholm Open and the Paris Masters on indoor hard courts.

The top four seeds in the 28-player draw have a first-round bye. Rune, No. 2 Jannik Sinner, No. 3 Borna Coric, and No. 4 Roberto Bautista Agut will all start on Tuesday, while the rest of the field plays on Monday at Montpellier Arena.

 

Defending Champ With a Tough Draw

Alexander Bublik is Montpellier’s defending champion, and he’s seeded No. 6 this week. However, he’s not the favorite in his first-round match on Monday. Bublik is +118 as he faces Gregoire Barrere, who is -156, to win the opening match.

Bublik is ranked 36 in the world, but he is 0-4 so far in 2023. Barrere is ranked 76th and is 1-2 so far this season. Neither player has shown a lot on the court yet in 2023, and they have split two head-to-head matches, with Bublik winning at Rotterdam in 2020 and Barrere taking a 4-set win at Wimbledon in 2019.

Last year Bublik knocked off Bautista Agut, Filip Krajinovic, and Zverev to win the title from the same No. 6 seed position for his only career title. Bublik played in Chile for his native Kazakhstan over the weekend in Davis Cup, losing both singles matches. Traveling halfway across the world to face Barrere is a tough task, but he has the talent to pull off the win as a plus money line underdog.

 

Ruusuvuori Looks to Build off Davis Cup Success

Emil Ruusuvuori is seeded No. 7 at Montpellier but is also an underdog for his first-round matchup against Mikael Ymer. Ruusuvuori is listed at +102, while Ymer is -133 to move on to the second round. In ATP action, Ruusuvuori is 1-3 this season, while Ymer is 2-3, including a head-to-head 3-set win in Adelaide last month.

These two have met four times in their history, with Ruusuvuori winning in Sweden and Miami in 2021, and Ymer also won in Washington last summer. All four of those matches went three sets, so this one should also be a great match.

Ruusuvuori was a force for Finland last week at home in the Davis Cup upset of Argentina. He won both of his singles matches, including the clincher, and also teamed up with Harri Heliovaara to win the doubles point. That weekend success should give him the confidence to knock off Ymer in France and move on to the second round.

 

Gasquet an Unseeded Favorite

No one has had as much success at the Open Sud de France over the years as veteran Richard Gasquet. A four-time winner at the event and a six-time finalist, Gasquet is -188 in the opening match against teenager Arthur Fils who is +150.

This matchup of Frenchmen is a contrast of experience. Gasquet has 592 wins on the ATP Tour, and he won his 16th career title earlier this season in Auckland to regain his status as the top-ranked French player (#46). Fils is ranked 164th and is still looking for his first official ATP match victory.

Gasquet is 4-2 on the season, and the title in Auckland was his first since 2018. This could be his final appearance at Montpellier, so look for him to make a run at yet another final.

MyBookie brings you a free tennis betting preview & analysis for the 2022 Open Sud De France, slated to kick off on Monday, January 31. Here is everything you need to know about the upcoming tennis tournament, with all the information you’ll ever need to place smart bets with the best ATP Betting Odds.

 

2022 ATP Open Sud De France Expert Analysis | Tennis Betting

2022 Open Sud de France Info

The 2022 Open Sud de France is a hard-court tennis tournament slated for January 31 – February 6 at Sud de France Arena in Montpellier, France. This year’s tournament will mark the 35th iteration of the event that is a part of the ATP Tour 250 and the 2022 ATP Tour.

Attending the tournament are some of the biggest names in the tennis world, with four of the top-25 ranked players. That includes Félix Auger-Aliassime (no.9), Roberto Bautista Agut (no.18), Gaël Monfils (no.20), and Nikoloz Basilashvili (no.23) as the fourth seed.

Joining them are Filip Krajinović (no.36), Alexander Bublik (no.37), Ugo Humbert (no.40), and David Goffin (no.45), as the eighth seed of the tournament. The field of the top-eight seeded players also includes two former champions in David Goffin, who won Open Sud de France in 2021, and Gaël Monfils, who won it three times (2010, 2014, 2020).

 

Players To Watch Out For

Roberto Bautista Agut

Last year’s finalist Roberto Bautista Agut enters the 2022 Open Sud de France hoping to try and win the trophy that escaped him last year, and he should feel confident about his chances to do so. The Spaniard has had a solid start to the 2022 season, reaching the finals of the ATP Cup in Australia, and performed reasonably well at the 2022 Australian Open, where he made it to the third round.

Admittedly, Bautista Agut would have hoped to pick up at least one trophy to kick off the new season, but it’s hard to feel disappointed with what he has shown so far. Furthermore, he has proven before that the Montpellier courts suit him, so he is definitely one of the players to watch out for.

 

Felix Auger-Aliassime

While we talk about the players who deserve our attention, it’s hard to forget Felix Auger-Aliassime. He beat Agut in the ATP Finals at the start of the month and has shown exceptional form at the 2022 Australian Open.

On the Australian hard courts, Auger-Aliassime made it into the quarter-finals, beating the likes of Ruusuvuori (3-2), Davidovich Fokina (3-1), Evans (3-0), and Čilič (1-3). But unfortunately, he could not make it past world no.2 Daniil Medvedev, who handed him a devastating loss against on Wednesday.

Auger-Aliassime lost the bout after leading by two sets, going down 7-6, 6-3, 6-7, 5-7, 4-6. However, despite his painful defeat, the Canadian deserves a lot of praise for his performance in Australia, where he has proven that he can compete with the best tennis players in the world. 

And considering he is the highest-rated tennis player in Montpellier, the question is not so much whether Auger-Aliassime can win, but instead if there is any player who can stop him?

 

Gaël Monfils

One player that should pop into your head when wondering who can stop the top-seeded Canadian is Gaël Monfils. The Frenchman is enjoying an excellent start to the 2022 season and looks set to make some noise on his home court.

He won the title in Adelaide and had an impressive run at the 2022 Australian Open, where he reached the quarter-finals. En route to the final eight, Monfils won against Bublik (3-0), Garin (3-0), Kecmanovic (3-0), and came very close to derailing Matteo Berrettini (2-3) in the QF but fell short in the final set (2-6).

So while Monfils could not make it past QF in Australia, he has proven that he is in excellent form as he heads to his home tournament with the wind in his sails. And if you combine that with the fact that Monfils is a three-time Open Sud de France champion, you have a recipe for a strong candidate to make it four this February.

Okay, let’s find out who’s in action and which players are offering the best value in their respective matches so you can bet against their Tennis odds.

 

Tennis Betting Predictions for the 2021 Open Sud de France

Benjamin Bonzi Vs No. 2 David Goffin

ATP Odds: Benjamin Bonzi +118 / David Goffin -163
Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 1:00 PM

You might now know who 24-year-old Benjamin Bonzi is, but you’re about to find out. The Frenchman is currently ranked a career-high125th in the world right now. Bonzi won the ATP Challenger event in Potchefstroom, South Africa just prior to competing in the 2021 Australian Open. Bonzi got knocked out in the first round of qualifying by Quentin Hays 06, 2-6.

Bonzi also beat world No. 4 Daniil Medvedev in the first round of the 2017 French Open. Bonzi also qualified for the 2018 Wimbledon Championships by beating Britain’s James Ward in the final qualifying round. Last, but not least, Bonzi qualified for the 2020 French Open beating Ivo Karlovic among others, in qualifying.

No. 2 seed David Goffin is ranked 15th on the ATP World Tour. The 30-year-old Belgian is 3-3 on the year with four titles in his career since turning pro in 2009. Goffin reached the semifinals in Antalya, Turkey to start his year before suffering a first round loss to Carlos Alcaraz at Melbourne 1. Goffin then suffered a crushing five-set first round loss in the Australian Open against 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (6), 3-6.

Prediction: While these two players have never met before, you should know there’s a huge difference in the caliber of players here. Benjamin Bonzi is prtty much, a career Challenger level player while David Goffin is a top 20 player that has reached as high as No. 7 in the ATP Tour world rankings. With Goffin hungry to get a victory following two straight losses, this one will be over in straight sets!

Pick: David Goffin In Straight Sets

 

Jiri Vesely Vs Peter Gojowczky

ATP Odds: Peter Gojowczky +122 / Jiri Vesely -169
Thursday, Feb. 25

27-year-old Jiri Vesely is ranked 69th in the ATP rankings. The 6-6 Czech lefty is 4-3 on the year and comes into this event fresh off an appearance in the second round of the Australian Open. Vesely got past Kimmer Coppejans in a five-set thriller in his opener before falling to world No. 16 Pablo Carreno Busta in four sets in his next match. Prior to the Aussie Open, Vesely reached the quarterfinals at Melbourne 2 before falling to Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime via second set retirement.

31-year-old German Peter Gojowczky is ranked 146th in the world. He won three matches before getting knocked out in the semifinals of the Quimper 2 Challenger event in France in early February before losing his first round qualifying match at the Australian Open against Cem Ilkel in sraight sets.

Prediction: Just like my first prediction, this match is more of a mismatch between a career Challenger Tour level player in Gojowczky  against a seasoned ATP Tour player that reached a career-high of No. 35 in 2015. Simply put, there’s no way Jiri Vesely loses this match against a player he should beat 10 times out of 10.

Pick: Jiri Vesely in Straight Sets

 

Upset Special: No. 3 Dusan Lajovic Vs Dennis Novak

Tennis Odds: Dusan Lajovic +105 / Dennis Novak -131
Thursday, Feb. 25 at 4:00 AM

No. 3 seed Dusan Lajovic is currently ranked a solid, 27th in the ATP Tour world rankings. The 30-year-old Serbian might be what looks like a modest 3-3 on the year, but he also made an impressive run to the Round of 16 at the recently completed Australian Open before falling to world No. 7 Alex Zverev in straight sets.

27-year-old Austrian Dennis Novak is ranked 102nd in the world rankings. He’s 1-2 on the year, but somehow managed to beat world No. 17 fabio Fognini in ATP Cup before losing to world No. 239 Nicholas Mahut in his next match. Novak lost in straight sets in the opening round of the Australian Open against veteran Adrian Mannarino.

Prediction: Lajovic won the only career meeting by dispatching Novak in straight sets, 6-2, 6-4 in the round of 16 at the 2018 Kitzbuhel event in Austria. With that said, I’m completely and utterly stunned that Dusan Lajovic isn’t the favorite in this match. Lajovic looked mostly fantastic in winning three matches at the Aussie Open and h should be able to build on the nice momentum he’s created to start the 2021 campaign. Not only doe Lajovic win this match, but he gets it done in straight sets!

Pick: Dusan Lajovic in Straight Sets
