The Outright Market
There has been a tennis tournament held in the principality of Monaco since as far back as 1897, and as such there is no surprise that the modern day incarnation has achieved Masters 1000 Series status and that the event attracts all of the biggest names in men’s tennis. With that in mind, the 2015 edition of the Monte Carlo Masters is likely to deliver some top-class action but when it comes to tennis betting advice, the outright market for the event is a very difficult one to call.
Between the years of 2005 and 2012 the Monte Carlo event was absolutely dominated by Rafael Nadal, with the superstar Spaniard winning each and every edition of the tournament in that time. That record plus his undoubted pedigree on clay, makes Nadal a tempting prospect for the 2015 title but given his recent struggles with injury and form, the odds available for Rafa don’t look all too generous.
Instead of putting your money behind Nadal then, some savvy tennis betting advice may well be to back another Spaniard. David Ferrer unquestionably plays his best tennis on clay and in the early part of 2015, has shown the same kind of form which saw Ferrer challenging for all of the major honours just a couple of years ago. Add to that the fact that Ferrer has reached the final in Monte Carlo in the past, and the relative outside according to the betting markets looks a very decent shout for the title.

If you’re the kind of punter who prefers a riskier bet for a potentially greater reward, then this final section of tennis betting advice detailing some decent each-way chances for the Monte Carlo Masters might just be up your street.
The usual suspects of men’s tennis in the shape of Nadal, Federer, Murray and Djokovic are likely to dominate the betting market ahead of the Monte Carlo event, so you can find some very decent each-way value if you are willing to look beyond those men.
Tomas Berdych may not be best known for his prowess on clay, but the Czech player has continued his recent excellent form in the early part of 2015 and is likely to be available at nicely generous odds for Monte Carlo. That makes him a tempting each-way proposition and the same can be said for Spaniard Feliciano Lopez. The veteran is actually at his highest ever point in the rankings, having reached number 12 in February, is a clay court specialist, and will be available at very long odds ahead of Monte Carlo. It would obviously be something of a surprise for him to make the final, but those odds might just be long enough to mean that an each-way bet still represents value.
