The grass-court season is already upon us and continues at a fast pace with the Eastbourne International starting this week.

Taking place at Devonshire Park, the Eastbourne International features an ATP 250 event and WTA 500 event this year and acts as excellent preparation for Wimbledon.

There is plenty of British involvement with Cameron Norrie set to feature in the men's competition and Emma Raducanu and Katie Boulter competing in the women's tournament.

Eastbourne International Odds

In the ATP Eastbourne International, Taylor Fritz leads the way in the betting as 3/1 favourite.

His compatriot Tommy Paul, meanwhile, is 9/2 and Alexander Bublik is a 6/1 shot.

Elena Rybakina leads the way in the WTA Eastbourne International at 3/1, while Emma Raducanu is also among the favourites at 13/2, which is the same price as Jessica Pegula and Madison Keys.

Tommy Paul to win ATP Eastbourne International @ 9/2

There is American dominance at the head of the ATP Eastbourne International betting and Tommy Paul is worth backing to edge compatriot Taylor Fritz.

Paul comes into the ATP Eastbourne International in excellent form, having just won the Queen's Club Championship on grass.

He took down notable players such as Jack Draper, Sebastian Korda and Lorenzo Musetti en route to his title and dropped just one set in the competition.

Paul was a quarter-finalist in Hertogenbosch earlier this month and he was one of the standout performers at Eastbourne last year.

The American reached the final of the event last year, losing out to Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina, although he did win the second set 6-1 and he can go a step further this time around.

Jessica Pegula to win WTA Eastbourne International @ 13/2

The WTA Eastbourne International betting looks especially competitive this year and punters should take on the two market leaders with a wager on Jessica Pegula.

Elena Rybakina is the favourite to take home the trophy and is arguably the biggest name in the draw.

However, the Kazakhstani ace has not had a great deal of grass-court preparation leading up to this event and was forced to withdraw from the Grass Court Championships Berlin due to abdominal pain.

That meant she completed just one full match in the German capital and it remains to be seen how fit she will be for Eastbourne.

Emma Raducanu is also high up in the betting but it is hard to see why.

Raducanu skipped the French Open to prepare for the grass-court season and made the semi-finals of the Nottingham Open but she is a wildcard in Eastbourne and faces a tricky draw, starting with a match against Sloane Stephens.

Instead, Jessica Pegula is the best pick.

Pegula is fresh from winning the title at the Grass Court Championships Berlin, defeating the likes of Coco Gauff and Donna Vekic, and she was a quarter-finalist in Eastbourne last year.
