Kento Momota likely to defend 2018 World Championships title according to our 2019 BWF World Championships betting predictions

Kento Momota is currently a favorite to win the Men’s Singles event at the 2019 BWF World Championships. Fortunately, he has leading Unibet Sportsbook Men’s Singles 2019 BWF World Championships betting odds to win at 1.72. Consequently, a win this year would make it a total of 2 titles for the Japanese badminton player. Momota will likely keep his momentum going following his 2019 Asian Championships win.

In addition to his 2019 Asian Championships win, he’ll also start the 2019 World Championships with an impressive career record. This includes gold at the 2018 Asian Championship, and World Championships and bronze at the 2015 World Championships and much more. He’s also the first Japanse player to top the BWF World Ranking for Men’s Singles players. 

Jonatan Christie to rise from regional to world champion this year in Basel

Indonesian badminton player Jonatan Christie trails behind Kento Momota with 2019 BWF World Champions odds of winning at 7.50. The 21 year has already made a name for himself in the badminton world following his 2018 Asian Games win. However, the year before, he also claimed the 2017 Southeast Asia Games win. Now, Christie has a good chance according to Unibet Sportsbook to conquer the world.

The Indonesian wonder kid has successfully risen through the ranks and now sits 4th in the Men’s Singles BWF World Rankings. Additionally, Christie has also proven to be a threat winning games against badminton greats Viktor Axelsen, Kento Momota and more. Christie will surely continue to make Indonesia proud with a BWF World Championships win in Basel. 

Chou Tien Chen could continue to raise Taiwan’s flag high with BWF World Championships win

Current World No.2 Chou Tien Chen (7.50) also stands a considerable chance to win at the 2019 World Championships. The Taiwanese badminton player hasn’t claimed any medals at the Men’s Singles BWF World Championships. According to the online sportsbook news in Switzerland, Tien Chen crashed out in the 2018 quarterfinals against Shi Yuqi.

However, according to our 2019 BWF World Championships betting predictions, Tien Chen can potentially be among the Men’s Singles medalists. The Unibet Sportsbook hopeful also has a good record so far this year to back up his winning chances in Basel. This includes winning the 2019 Thailand Open and being the first Taiwanese men’s player to do so.

Additionally, Chou Tien Chen won the Men’s Singles event at the 2019 Indonesian Open, also the first Taiwanese to do so. Fortunately, he also stands a good chance to be the first Taiwanese to win the Men’s Singles at the World Championships.

Chen Long looks to return to winning ways at the BWF World Championships

Long will enter the 2019 BWF World Championships with an impressive singles record of 415 wins and 100 losses. However, after winning the 2016 Olympic Games, his form slightly dropped claiming only 3 title wins:

  • 2017 Asian Championships
  • 2017 China Open
  • 2018 French Open

This is unlike Chen Long who has an outstanding 30 individual titles under his belt including 2 World Championships wins. Unfortunately, with odds at 11.00 on the online sportsbook sites in Switzerland, he doesn’t come across as the strongest contender. However, you shouldn’t rule out the Unibet Sportsbook hopeful just yet. Our 2019 BWF World Championships betting predictions foresee Long giving his all with 2020 Summer Olympics qualification at stake.
