The 2019 starts in Houston on Tuesday night, with the Astros hosting the Washington Nationals. The Nationals cruised through the St. Louis Cardinals to their first World Series appearance. They now face a tougher test against the Houston Astros, who look to capture their second title in three years. Hard to not like the Astros with their pitching staff in this series, with Gerrit Cole and Justin Verlander in the midst of two of the best seasons in recent memory.

- Defending women’s champ, Simona Halep, coming off her second win in three years
Men’s Singles Preview and Predictions
The top player at the 2019 Canadian Open (also called the Rogers Cup) is Rafael Nadal. Nadal is in the midst of another successful tennis season, although his failure to beat Roger Federer at Wimbledon left some disappointment.
While Nadal is the reigning champion at the Rogers Cup and the male with the best Canadian Open odds to win, his odds to win are not as valuable as they are in tournaments with Federer and Djokovic.
Instead, our pick to win the 2019 men’s portion of the Rogers Cup is Stefanos Tsitsipas. Tsitsipas is coming off a final’s appearances at last year’s tournament, beating some impressive talent (four ten-top ranked opponents) before losing to Nadal in the finals.
Since last year’s breakout performances at the Rogers Cup, Tsitsipas is one of the hottest young names in the tennis world. He won two tournaments already this year and has a bye for the first round of the 2019 Rogers Cup.
His position in the bracket will help him avoid Nadal and Alex Zverev (his biggest challenger outside of Nadal) until later in the tournament. Also, because of his odds to win the 2019 Canadian Open, it is possible to bet on him and lay some extra juice on Nadal or another option and still come up positive if either tennis player wins.
Pick: Stefanos Tsitsipas (+1600) to Win 2019 Men’s Singles at the Rogers Cup
Women’s Singles Preview and Predictions
Although Serena Williams is the favourite to win the 2019 women’s singles Rogers Cup, we are not too fond of betting on her with the odds currently available.
Williams has come up a little short in some of her recent tennis tournaments, often losing in the finals. One of her losses, at the 2018 U.S. Open, came against Naomi Osaka, who is our pick to win the 2019 women’s Canadian Open.
While Osaka has also fallen short at recent Grand Slams, her greatest successes in her career have come on the hardcourt, which is what the 2019 Rogers Cup is played on.
The Rogers Cup is a key tournament for the defending U.S. Open champion, helping previous winners prepare and get a better idea of what types of players they will face in late August and early September.
Osaka has been open about her shortcomings in the last few months. The heightened attention and pressure on the 21-year-old have hindered her performances lately, but she is feeling more confident now, going into the Rogers Cup.
Overall, the women’s field this year is strong, but Osaka’s abilities on the hardcourt are enough bettors should feel confident she will be the Rogers Cup 2019 winner.
Pick: Naomi Osaka (+800) to Win 2019 Women’s Singles at the Rogers Cup
