Naturally, online tennis betting players will be looking to back the reigning champ in this year’s Monte Carlo Masters. Rafael Nadal will be vying for his 11th title in the Principality of Monaco and the odds certainly peg him as the 2018 Monte Carlo Masters betting favorite. Coming off a dynamic performance versus Alexander Zverev in the Davis Cup, there’s no question that Nadal is in his stride. However, the Spaniard will have to navigate some rough waters as it will be either Dominic Thiem or Novak Djokovic who Nadal will face in the quarterfinals matchup.
Considering that Dominic Thiem is still nursing an ankle injury, there’s no doubt that Nadal will make quick work of him As for Novak Djokovic, historically, Nadal hasn’t had much problem surpassing the Serb. All in all, top sportsbook players can expect Nadal to reach the semifinal round. Once there, Nadal will have to face either Grigor Dimitrov or David Goffin. How will the Spaniard fare against either of these two?
Interestingly enough, Goffin, like Thiem, is still nursing an injury. Albeit, his is an optical injury as Goffin is still trying to get his eyes back at 100%. With a banged up eye, there’s little hope for the Bulgarian to upset Nadal. All things considered, it’s looking like Nadal could make back to back claims on the Monte Carlos Masters.
Other interesting possible 2018 Monte Carlo Masters betting matchups include Alexander Zverev taking on Fabio Fognini in the third round, or even the Lucas Pouille vs. Richard Gasquet potential quarterfinals pairing. But before we get into these matchups, we must first get through Tuesday’s lineup. The odds and matchups are listed below.
