Betfair Tennis Trading Tips: ATP/WTA Sunday 19th October

tennis ball map of world

All times are UK/Irish and are subject to change, and all times are in 24hr format e.g., 01.00 = 1am and 16:00 = 4pm:



1. 13:00 – Ferrer v Murray

Head to head indicates a close call here. Murray leads 7-6. However, the Hard court battle is very one sided with 6 of 8 matches going his way.

Ferrer was a tough encounter for Murray in their last match. I feel the Spaniard will be hard to beat again today. However, with Murray desperate to rack up some points for the ATP Finals in London, I think your money should be on the Scot here!

Back Murray @1.36, lay @1.14



2. 12:00 – Agut v Cilic

I do think this is going to be a battle for Marin Cilic. As well as he came back to beat Kukushkin today, Agut was ruthless against Gulbis. Go for the Spaniard!

Lay Cilic @1.46, back @1.85

I suggest keeping the stakes low at the start..



3. 10:00 – Pavlyuchenkova v Begu

Pavlyu again started off quickly and in the end it was a straightforward win. Begu on the other hand had a tough match against Safarova. I am suggesting to Back Pavlyu, not just because of her fast starts, but also due to her being on the court fewer minutes compared to Begu.

Back Pavlyu @1.32, lay @1.1



4. 14:00 – Berdych v Dimitrov

Another mouthwatering ATP final here with the Bulgarian having an overall 3-1 Head to head lead against the Czech (a bit surprised by that!). However, I do think this one will be a tough one to call. The price for me on Berdych is slightly lower than I expected so I’m suggesting to Lay the Czech for the simple reason that I feel the market will likely fluctuate at the start.

Lay Berdych @1.74, back @2.5

Worth considering laying the first set winner as there is likely a 3rd set on show here!

Good luck!

    Can you talk me through the Cilic trade?

      Hi Ryan
      Not sure what you specifically want to know about this match. Basically, Agut played well enough at the start to make Cilic odds jump here. I believe it hit the price of 1.86 or 1.87 here which was a tick or two more than our target. I followed this match live so I can confirm it.
