Tennis Predictions: Best bets and picks for Wednesday, June 12th

Stuttgart, Nottingham and ‘s-Hertogenbosch predictions and best bets for June 12th

With the French Open having just ended, the tennis action will be all over the place until Wimbledon (which I already previewed). There are grass-court events in all different parts of the world (Stuttgart, Nottingham, ‘s-Hertogenbosch), and there are also some Challenger-level events being played on clay. I’ll be taking a bit of a scattered approach over the next few weeks, taking advantage of the insane amount of tennis to find value wherever I can. I’ll then dial things in a bit more once we get to the Cinch Championships at the Queen’s Club in London next week. With that in mind, keep reading for a few of my tennis best bets and tennis predictions for Wednesday, June 12th.

I’m going to quickly hit on some of my favorite picks below, but I usually have a lot more on the Pro Picks page. I also occasionally add some picks throughout the day, as schedules can get wonky with the international nature of the sport. I also like to see how odds are moving. That said, keep checking the page throughout the day.

2024 Record: 374-386 (+32.20 units)

Arthur Fils vs. Ugo Humbert – Hertogenbosch

Humbert lost in the first round of the French Open, giving him five losses in his last six matches. However, the lefty should be excited about playing on grass. Humbert is only 20-17 on grass in his career, and he’s just 3-5 on the surface in the last 52 weeks. But Humbert has a booming first serve and the ability to pound the ball for quick winners. So, it’s only a matter of time before he racks up some big results on this surface. And while I know Humbert is hurting for form right now, I just can’t help but like him to beat Fils in the Netherlands. Fils is an absolutely electric player, and the Frenchman has some big-time power himself. But I think Humbert’s style makes him a little bit of a better fit for these speeding fast conditions. For as big as Fils can occasionally go with the ball on his racquet, his hold percentage is just 79.1% this season. Humbert’s is up at 85.8%. Look for the southpaw to see a few more break point opportunities, which should make all the difference in the world.

Bet: Humbert ML (-135)

Daria Saville vs. Diane Parry – Nottingham

I had Parry to beat Cristina Bucsa in her opening-round match, but that was a meeting between two players with very little grass-court experience. So, I kept things pretty simple and trusted in the better player to figure it out. But Parry, who is just 21 years old, is still inexperienced on the surface and is going up against a player that has played 34 grass-court matches at the WTA level. With that in mind, the Frenchwoman is at a clear disadvantage here. And while I’m largely a big fan of Parry’s game, I do think Saville will have some tricks up her sleeve in this match. Look for Saville to do her best to rush Parry’s one-handed backhand quite a bit here, and don’t be surprised if the Australian’s variety is key in helping her win this. The only thing I’m a little worried about is Saville’s miserable serve, but the speedy conditions should make things easier. She just needs to take a little off her serves and focus on making them.

Bet: Saville ML (-105)
