This is a match between the two most decorated nations in Fed Cup history. The hosts, Czech Republic have 10 Fed Cup titles to their name, which is an impressive achievement but cannot match the tremendous 18 victories held by the United States.
Last year, the Czech’s were narrowly defeated by the United States at the semi-final stage and will be keen to get revenge in the final this time around. With their home fans backing them, the 2018 Fed Cup betting odds have Czech Republic as the favourites, priced at just 1.14 with William Hill.
Given the dominance of United States in the Fed Cup and their win over Czech Republic in the semi-final last year, the odds seem to be strangely overwhelmingly in the home teams favour. They are playing at home which is an advantage but it is the team news of the United States squad which has had a major influence.

2. Fed Cup Betting Odds
United States have three players inside the world’s top 20 but their team in 2018 Fed Cup Final will consist of Danielle Collins, Sofia Kenin, Alison Riske and Nicole Melichar. Not one of these players is inside the official WTA top 30 rankings.
United States will be missing Serena Williams, Venus Williams, Sloane Stephens and Madison Keys. It is a monumental blow to their chances and with Czech Republic at full strength including Petra Kvitova and Karolina Pliskova, the United States have been given little hope of retaining their title.
United States are out at 5.00 with William Hill to win the 2018 Fed Cup Final.
