Novak Djokovic in form to claim record equaling 6th ATP Finals crown
The ATP Finals 2018 take place at the O2 Arena in London, from 11 to 19 November. Here’s Betfinder’s preview on this season finale event along with a few ATP World Finals betting tips for added interest.
2018 ATP World Finals Betting Tips
Outright Winner – Novak Djokovic @ 4/6 with BetFred
The season-ending event features the eight highest-ranked male singles players on the 2018 ATP World Tour, although injury has forced the withdrawal of two players in Rafael Nadal and Juan Martin Del Potro.
Their places have been taken by John Isner and Kei Nishikori respectively. There is also no defending champion, with last year’s winner Grigor Dimitrov failing to make the cut.
ATP World Finals Betting Tips & Preview
As is customary, the eight players have been split into two groups. Group Guga Kuerten contains Novak Djokovic, Alexander Zverev, Marin Cilic and Isner. Group Lleyton Hewitt features Roger Federer, Kevin Anderson, Dominic Thiem and Nishikori.
All matches are played on a best of three sets basis. The group stage is played on a round-robin format, with each player facing a group rival once. The two top players in each group then progress to the semi-finals, with the winner of each group playing the runner-up in the other group. The two semi-final winners then progress to the final.
The tournament does contain two multiple winners of the event, with Federer having claimed a record six titles and Djokovic being a five-time winner. Unsurprisingly, in the absence of Nadal, Andy Murray and Del Potro, those two players are strong favourites with the bookies.
ATP World Tour Finals Odds
Djokovic, who has lost just two of 33 matches since the start of Wimbledon this year, is understandably 4/6 favourite to win the ATP Finals with BetFred.
- 4/6 fav Novak Djokovic (Betfred)
- 11/4 Roger Federer (Coral)
- 16/1 Marin Cilic (Betfred)
- 16/1 Alexander Zverev (Betfred)
- 22/1 Kei Nishikori (bet365*)
- 28/1 Kevin Anderson (Betfred)
- 33/1 John Isner (Paddy Power)
- 33/1 Dominic Thiem (Betfred)
Djokovic is 4/9 to win his group with bet365*, while Federer is 4/6, also with bet365*, to win his group. The Swiss legend is probably at more risk given his advancing years, so perhaps a bet on Nishikori (4/1 with Paddy Power), Anderson (6/1 with BetVictor) or Thiem (7/1 with BetVictor) has some appeal.
Djokovic does look the pick in the outright winner market though given his superb return to form over the latter half of the season and the fact that he has won the event on multiple occasions previously.
