Get Ready for a Veritable Tennis Betting Octoberfest

September 29, 2017 Tennis

If you fancy tennis betting, then October will be like Christmas, or rather, Halloween, everyday. The 2017 ATP Tour is gearing towards its conclusion and it will take players from the mystic East to foreboding Eastern Europe, and making a stop where all roads lead, not Rome, but Paris. It’s a true Oriental Express for people who like to bet on tennis. So, without further ado, let’s get all aboard.

2017 China Open

Among the ham-and-eggers attending this tournament we find one Rafael Nadal, who won the 2005 edition.

Marin Čilić, Dominic Thiem, Milos Raonic, and Sam Querrey stand out as possible candidates to win this competition, for all of whom it would be a first and would have them join the likes of Roger Federer, Nadal, and Murray,

  • Edition: 28th (men)/22nd (women)

Pablo Carreño Busta and Albert Ramos Viñolas, being the top ranked, and thus, top seeded, players (Nos. 10 and 25 respectively) should be the tennis favourites to win.

Murray has won two of the last three finals, but he will be, this time around, so kind so as to allow someone else to get the gold, perhaps Thiem, or Raonic?

2017 Swiss Indoors
