Tennis Betting Rundown of the 2022 Davis Cup Quarter-finals Matchups
The doubles match wasn’t needed in Australia vs. the Netherlands as Jordan Thompson, and Alex De Minaur won both singles matches for Australia. Thompson defeated Tallon Griekspoor 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, and De Minaur beat Botic Van de Zandschulp 5-7, 6-3, 6-3. Australia hasn’t won the Davis Cup since 2003.
“We’ve got a great team, a lot of belief and a lot of passion,” said De Minaur after the match. “I’m very happy to win today. Every single one of these players on our team is going to play their heart out. We’ll do everything we can for our country.”
Canada plays Germany, and the US plays Italy in the other quarter-finals.
Outright Betting Odds

- US +400
- Italy +450
- Spain +500
- Australia +750
- Germany +2000
Croatia vs Spain Prediction
Croatia is the betting favorite at -225 to beat Spain (+162) in Wednesday’s quarter-final. Spain is without its top two players in Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz, the latter of whom is the world No. 1. Alcaraz was forced to withdraw late due to injury.
Still, it’s worth taking the underdog Spanish team here as they have home-court advantage and still have a solid team of veteran players like Pablo Carreno Busta, Roberto Bautista Agut, and Albert Ramos-Vinolas. Croatia is led by Marin Cilic and also features Borna Coric and Borna Gojo.
Italy vs US Prediction
Like Spain, Italy enters the Davis Cup Finals with major absences. The team is without Jannik Sinner and Matteo Berrettini, both of whom are out with injuries. A pair of Lorenzos (Musetti and Sonego) will lead the Italian team. They’re ranked No. 23 and 45 in the world, respectively.
The Americans are led by Taylor Fritz (No. 9), Frances Tiafoe (No. 19), and Tommy Paul (No. 33). Fritz reached the ATP Finals for the first time in his career this year, while Tiafoe and Paul also had career-best seasons. The US are -200 favorites to win.
Take the Americans to move past the undermanned Italians in this match. The US hasn’t won the Davis Cup since 2007.
Canada vs Germany Prediction
Canada is one of the favorites to win the Davis Cup, despite having never won the tournament in its history. Led by Felix Auger-Aliassime, who won three of his last four events of the season before the ATP Finals, Canada has a deep roster that also includes Denis Shapovalov and Vasek Pospisil.
Germany, meanwhile, is also without its top star in Alex Zverev. He has been battling an ankle injury since the French Open, where he played against Nadal in the semifinals. Expect Canada (-550) to advance to meet the US in the second semifinal.
