National Tennis Teams Compete in the Davis Cup This WeekendPublished November 28, 2021 by Florin P
The Davis Cup resumes this weekend, with the best teams and tennis players in the world representing their countries in the flagship tournament.
The ATP and WTA finals have concluded last week so all the important tennis tournaments for 2021 are over. Fans of the sport have just one competition left to watch in the remaining weeks of this year. The Davis Cup is underway and the best teams in the world are scheduled to play over the weekend. You can bet on all the singles and doubles matches at bet365 Sports and 1xBet pregame and live.
Great Britain has an Edge against France
One of the oldest rivalries in tennis is about to be reignited on Saturday afternoon. Great Britain and France meet for the 7th time, after splitting the previous six matches. This has been a highly contested series, with Great Britain winning three in a row but dropping the last two. In 2021 we consider them to be slight favorites and also like the odds of 8/1 on them to win the competition. France is the team in better form and could be considered as a dark horse since it gets odds of 21/1 to win the Davis Cup.
Italy and the United States fight in Group E
Arguably the most contested group in the Davis Cup, it pits Italy against the United States and Colombia. The latter are obvious underdogs, but the transatlantic battle promises to be incredibly balanced. 1xBet offers identical odds of 9/10 on each team to win the match, as well as Group E. Interestingly enough, Italy has a slight advantage over the US to win the tournament, as they are priced at 9/1 compared to 10/1.
Russia Favorites to win the Davis Cup
This competition is a partisan one, generating tremendous enthusiasm among players and fans. It will be played in several locations and there are still plenty of games left until the winner will be decided. Having said this, Russia has emerged as the clear favorite to lift the trophy as reflected by the odds of 1/1 offered by bet365 Sports. They’re expected to crush Spain and Ecuador in Group A and cruise through playoffs.
Serbia is regarded as the most likely contender in the later stages of the tournament, with odds of 5/1. The reason the Eastern Europeans are credited with such a good chance is that they have Novak Djokovic in the starting formation. By contrast, Spain can’t rely on Rafael Nadal, so the Iberic team is priced at 8/1. Germany is also further down despite being able to rely on Alexander Zverev who recently won the ATP Finals. Sadly for them, he is the only top-quality tennis player in their formation.
