- Back-to-back: the last player to win consecutive titles in the Canadian Open was Novak Djokovic when he won two straight in 2012 and 2013

Best Bets for Canadian Open 2019
It's a tale of two cities and two different tournaments as the fields are looking mighty different for each group in the Canadian Open 2019.
The Montreal Rogers Cup, featuring the men, will be without both world #1 and three-time winner Novak Djokovic and world #3 and 2017 finalist Roger Federer. The pair are still recovering from their unbelievable Wimbledon Finals showdown.
Without Djokovic and Federer, Rafael Nadal becomes the runaway favourite to defend his title and capture his fifth championship. He is a solid bet to go all the way and is undefeated (4-0) when he reaches the Final. The last time a men's Rogers Cup did not feature either him, Djokovic, or Federer in the Final was back in 2009.
Milos Raonic, a runner-up in 2013, may have another good shot to make a deep run while fellow Canadians Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime will be longshots to go beyond the first two rounds.
The women in the Toronto Rogers Cup will have a more stacked field with the likes of world #1 Ashleigh Barty, Serena Williams, and defending champion Simona Halep all taking part. Canadians Bianca Andreescu and Eugenie Bouchard may be in for a short tournament.
Andreescu is ranked 26th and will face Bouchard in the first round, guaranteeing that at least a Canadian will advance to the second day of play. However, Andreescu will likely run into a seeded opponent who could make short work of her.
The field narrows to between Halep and Williams in a potential Wimbledon rematch. Halep has won two Canadian Open titles and has made at least the semi-finals in the last four tournaments. Williams has a career 30-4 record in this tournament but is 37. Either of them will be the Rogers Cup 2019 winner.
How to Win with the Canadian Open Odds
Betting on the Canadian Open odds is simple and easy. Sportsbooks are a popular site that regularly opens betting lines on the premier Canadian tennis tournament. The strategy to win through betting will depend on what you are betting.
Rogers Cup odds are usually broken into matchday odds: these are when you bet on the players playing the matches. Matchday odds include the moneyline, the straight-up pick your winner prediction, the spread, where you bet on players with a points handicap, and the totals or over/under.
The moneyline is straightforward. But the odds can be skewed here, especially if Nadal or another big favourite plays an unseeded player. To avoid wagering too much money for little return, play the spread. This evens out the betting odds in exchange for a points handicap.
The favourite will need to win more than the handicap he or she is set e.g. -5.5 = win by 6 points or more. Alternatively, the underdog at +5.5 is given up to 5 points to lose by.
Totals involve the combined points both players total. You bet whether it goes higher (over) or lower (under) the bookie's total number.
Lastly, some books will offer props. These are bets like the Futures markets, where you can bet on future events. Depending on the book and the event, these props can range from a few markets to hundreds. They have also opened anywhere from a year before the event to just the day before.
