Croatia -190

Why Bet on France?

France will be looking to win back-to-back titles for the first time since the 1930s, but they will be without their nation’s three highest-ranked singles players. French captain Yannick Noah has named world No. 32 Lucas Pouille as his top player after the lefty won the deciding 5th match in last year’s Final.

Pouille will be joined by No. 42 Jeremy Chardy and Top 20 doubles players Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut, not to mention former superstar Jo-Wilfried Tsonga who, just last month won his first match since retiring in the semifinals at Montpellier in February. Currently ranked No. 261 in the world, Tsonga could turn out to be a difference-maker.

Why Bet on Croatia?

Croatia’s line-up features the same five players who defeated the United States to reach this year’s finals. ATP’s No. 7 Marin Cilic will lead the way for Croatia. he’s joined by the blossoming World No. 12 Borna Coric, who, last month reached the Shanghai Masters final while beating Roger Federer and Juan Martin del Potro along the way.

Marin Cilic leads the Croatian Team for the 2018 Davis Cup Final.

Franko Skugor can compete in singles and doubles, but the Croatians also have a pair of standout doubles players starting with World No. 3 Mate Pavic and World No. 35 Ivan Dodig, a player that has made an insane 31 Davis Cup appearances since his first appearances back in 2002. France has won 10 Davis Cup titles while Croatia won their only title in 2005. The nations have met twice before while splitting their two meetings.

Expert 2018 Davis Cup Final Betting Prediction

With World No. 26 Richard Gasquet, No. 29 Gael Monfils and No. 30 Gilles Simon all out of this Davis Cup event, it’s no wonder that Croatia is favored to win this year’s title despite being on foreign soil. I won’t waste a lot of time, but Marin Cilic and Borna Coric should both have their way in leading Croatia to their first Davis Cup title in over a decade.
