Davis Cup 2019 Predictions & Betting Odds
The 2019 Davis Cup looks to be one of the most open sports events of the year based on the current betting odds, with many of the competing teams looking to have realistic hopes of winning the tournament.
Host nation Spain go into Davis Cup 2019 as the bookmakers favourites, but other teams to feature as leading contenders in pre-tournament Davis Cup 2019 predictions & betting odds include France (the No. 1 team in the world rankings), Croatia (the Davis Cup winners in 2018), USA, Australia, Serbia, Russia, Germany and Argentina.

Davis Cup Betting Tips & Predictions
Picking a winner for Davis Cup 2019 is no easy task, with a number of teams having genuine hopes of coming out as champions.
Three of the leading contenders in the betting are Spain, Croatia and Russia but, despite all three having strong claims, there’s a significant problem in that they’ve all been drawn together in Group B, which is the very definition of a “Group of Death”.
The format for the tournament means that only one of the three teams is guaranteed to progress to the knockout stage and with the group looking too close to call, it probably pays to avoid backing any of them at this stage.
The team to back for Davis Cup 2019 could be France at +500 (6.00) at Sports Interaction. Recent history certainly suggests they should go close, with French being runners-up in 2018 and champions in 2017.
France are a team that has a wealth of experience at the highest level, with captain being able to call upon Gael Monfils, Benoit Paire, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut.
They shouldn’t have too many problems in Group A either, having been drawn alongside Serbia and Japan. The Serbs will be heavily reliant on Novak Djokovic, but with the tournament being played over such a short period of time, it’s asking an awful lot of the world’s leading player.
Canada has an excellent team with plenty of depth and look very capable of topping Group F ahead of the USA and Italy.
Davis Cup 2019 Schedule
There’s a new look to the schedule for Davis Cup 2019, which will take place over one week from 18 to 24 November 2019 on indoor hard courts at La Caja Mágica in Madrid, Spain.
The Davis Cup Finals will feature 18 teams – 12 qualifiers, the previous year’s four semi-finalists and two wild card nations (Argentina and Great Britain). Each of the ties will be contested in a best-of-three rubbers format and played over one day. Each tie will consist of two singles matches followed by a doubles match.
The 18 teams have been split into six round-robin groups of three teams, with the six group winners plus the two second-placed teams (based on the best records in terms of sets and games won) will qualify for the next stage. From the quarterfinals, the tournament will be based on a knockout format.
These are the six groups at Davis Cup 2019:
- Great Britain
Davis Cup 2019 – Canada Team
Canada look to have a team capable of providing a few surprises at Davis Cup 2019. Team captain Frank Dancevic has some excellent players to call upon in Milos Raonic, Felix Auger-Aliassime, Denis Shapovalov and Vasek Pospisil.
Canada are in Group F, alongside the USA and Italy at Davis Cup 2019. All three teams will believe they can win the group, as is apparent from the group betting.
At the time of writing, Canada are the 14th ranked in the world and reached the Davis Cup Finals after rallying through youngsters Shapovalov and Auger-Aliassime to claim a 3-2 victory over Slovakia in their qualifier tie in Bratislava.
Canada’s opening tie at Davis Cup 2019 is against Italy on November 18, with the USA their opponents a day later.
These are the current best available odds on the Group F winner with the top sportsbooks:
