Tennis betting in July will wrap up with the Washington Open, the Los Cabos Open, and the Austrian Open Kitzbühel.

  • Jana Čepelová replaces Samantha Stosur

The French Monfils enters the tournament as the winner of the 2016 Washington Open men’s singles, having defeated Ivo Karlovic 5-7, 7-6, 6-4 in the final last year. However, as the highest ranked and therefore higher seeded, Thiem, Nishilkori, and Raonic have to be the favorites of people who bet on tennis – and as a matter of fact, the Canadian won the 2014 edition while the Japanese won the following year. That said, even though del Potro is on the lower side of seeding, one mustn’t forget the fact that the Argentine has won this event on three occasions, and as recently as 2013.

2017 Los Cabos Open

  • Date: 31st July-6th August
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Defending champion: Ivo Karlović
  • Draw 28S/16D
  • Prize money: $637,395
  • Surface: Hard
  • Location: Los Cabos, Mexico


  • Tomáš Berdych
  • Sam Querrey
  • Albert Ramos Viñolas
  • Feliciano López
  • Ivo Karlović
  • Karen Khachanov
  • Fernando Verdasco
  • Adrian Mannarino

Wild cards:

  • Thanasi Kokkinakis


  • Jason Jung replaces James Duckworth
  • Máximo González replaces Víctor Estrella Burgos

Fresh off a deep run in the Wimbledon Championships, Querrey has tennis betting fave written all over him. Prior to reaching his first grand slam semifinal, the San Franciscan earned his ninth career ATP singles title at the 2017 Abierto Mexicano Telcel, beating, among others, World No. 6 Rafael Nadal. Having established that Mexico agrees with Querrey, it is reasonable to see him coming out on top in Cabo.

2017 Austrian Open Kitzbühel

  • Date: 31st July-6th August
  • Edition: 73rd
  • Defending champion: Paolo Lorenzi
  • Category: World Tour 250 series
  • Surface: Clay/Outdoor
  • Location: Kitzbühel, Austria
  • Venue: Tennis stadium Kitzbühel


  • Pablo Cuevas
  • Fabio Fognini
  • David Ferrer
  • Paolo Lorenzi
  • Gilles Simon
  • Robin Haase
  • Jan-Lennard Struff
  • Jiří Veselý
  • Wild cards
  • Gerald Melzer
  • Sebastian Ofner


  • Carlos Berlocq replaces Nicolás Almagro
  • Renzo Olivo replaces Denis Istomin
  • Dušan Lajović replaces Martin Kližan
  • Andrey Kuznetsov replaces Viktor Troicki

Paolo Lorenzi won the 2016 title by defeating Nikoloz Basilashvili in the final 6-3, 6-4. Being the current champion does not necessarily guarantee great tennis betting odds, though it did work for Haase, who won the 2011 edition and returned the next year to make it back-to-back titles. Being of the Argentine persuasion also helps; players from the South American country won the tourney four times straight from 2005 to 2008.
