WTA Dubai Tennis Championship Betting Tips
The Dubai Tennis Championships is back and once again it’s all set to be full of stars battling it out for $2million in prize money.
Getting underway on February 17, the women’s tournament features the likes of Simona Halep, Karolina Pliskova, and Sofia Kenin, the latter showcasing some fine form as she lifted her first Grand Slam just a few weeks ago.
But who will come out on top in Dubai?
The Favourites For The Tournament
The Australian Open highlighted the form players going into this event and both finalists are up there among the favorites.
Kenin is a 17/2 shot with Paddy Power after stunning a number of big names at Melbourne Park to take the win. Garbiñe Muguruza is priced at 9/1, while the favorite for the event is Simona Halep at 5/1.
Halep won the event in 2015 and will be looking to get back to winning ways after just falling short in Australia.
Karolina Pliskova is also among the favorites and would perhaps be our top pick with the Czech star priced at 11/2.
It’ll once again be an exciting tournament with a mixture of youth and experience, and as well as Pliskova we’d certainly keep our eye on Kenin’s 17/2 pricing.
Last year saw a shock result after Swiss Belinda Bencic won the tournament. She’s priced as an outsider once again at 14/1, while Elina Svitlova, who has plenty of experience in winning this championship will certainly be worth a punt at 12/1.
Elise Mertens is priced at 14/1 alongside Bencic and Ons Jabeur, who did so well in Australia could be worth a free bet priced at 50/1.
Qiang Wang was another woman to have an excellent January, beating Serena Williams at the Australian Open, but 25/1 looks as though it could be a little too far for her this time around.
Other outside chances worth considering include Aryna Sabalenka (10/1), Dayana Yastremska (16/1) and María Sakkari (18/1).
