ATP Miami Tennis betting sees the return of some top tennis action in the USA this week.

Itis a pretty stacked field, even though none of the Big Three are playing in South Florida.

That’s no Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer to look at for ATP Miami tennis betting.

The other notable absentee from the draw is Dominic Thiem.

Regardless this is still a strong field and it gives someone a big opportunity to land an ATP Masters 1000 title.

ATP Miami Tennis Tournament Information

The tournament starts in Miami on March 24th and the final will be played on April 4th.

So it is an exciting two weeks of tennis betting to look forward to.

The event moved to its new home of the Hard Rock Stadium in 2019 and Roger Federer became the first man to lift the title there.

The 2020 edition was cancelled.

With no title defence in play here for Federer, it is Russia’s Daniil Medvedev who is the current front runner in ATP Miami Tennis betting.

Seven of the last nine editions of the tournament were won by either Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer. That’s how big of a deal their absences are.

  3. Alexander Zverev
  4. Andrey Rublev

Medvedev the front runner in ATP Miami tennis betting

Russia’s Daniil Medvedev is the front runner for ATP Miami Tennis betting at 21/10*(betting odds recorded at 23:20 GMT on March 23rd, 2021 at Bet365).

He is looking to make it third time lucky at the tournament, the best finish having been a fourth-round defeat in 2019 against eventual winner Roger Federer.

It has been av very strong 2021 seasons for Medvedev who heads to South Florida on a 14-2 season record.

Medvedev has earned titles at the ATP Cup and the Open 13 Provence, while he ran to the final of the Australian Open in which Novak Djokovic got the better of him.

There could be a tough semi-final match ahead, as one would expect, as there is a potential clash with Alexander Zverev in the final four.

Medvedev though is on a three-match winning streak against the German.

More to come from Rublev?

Another Russian, Andrey Rublev is the current second favourite at 7/2 in ATP Miami Tennis betting odds*(betting odds recorded at 23:20 GMT on March 23rd, 2021 at Bet365).

It has been a really big year for him as well. He heads to Miami on an excellent 16-3 record for the year.

Rublev has earned a title, lifting the crown in Rotterdam after having gotten past Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-final and that came straight after a quarter-final place at this year’s Australian Open.

On the recent middle east swing of the season, Rublev reached the semi-finals in both events at Doha and Dubai and brings some hot form to the table.

Rublev enters the fray in Miami as the fourth seed, which puts him on a collision course with Tsitsipas in the semi-finals.

Alexandr Zverev knocking on the door

Third seed Alexandr Zverev is another one who has had a taste of claiming an ATP title this season.

The German got his hands on the crown in Acapulco, Mexico on the weekend to bring some form to Miami.

Zverev is at 8/1 in the ATP Miami Tennis betting outright*(betting odds recorded at 23:20 GMT on March 23rd, 2021 at Bet365).

It was a victory over Stefanos Tsitsipas that gave Zverev the title in that tournament, and the German didn’t drop a set in the entire campaign.

Given a deep run at the Australian Open this year where he was stopped in the quarters by Novak Djokovic, 23-year-old Zverev looks a big threat early in the season.

The 23-year-old lost his first match at the 2019 ATP Maters 1000 Miami tournament and ha in large, struggled in the Masters 1000 events since.

But in November last year, he did reach the final of the ATP Masters 1000 Paris, losing to Medvedev after having gotten the better of Rafa Nadal in the final four.

Stefanos Tsitsipas

Greek star Stefanos Tsitsipas enters Miami as the second seed. He has posted a 14-4 season record but has yet to get his hands on a title.

He has gone close, however.

The world number five has been to the semi-finals of both the Australian Open and Rotterdam where he was beaten by Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev respectively.

Earlier this month Tsitsipas reached the final of Acapulco where he was beaten by Alexander Zverev.

What does all that stack up to?

Tstitsipas having been beaten by each of the other players who are entering Miami in the top-four seeds, during the course of this year.

So while he has been knocking on the door, there is the question mark of him falling a little short when it comes to the business end of things against the top players.

There is a quote of 7/1 on Steanfos Tsitsipas in ATP Miami Tennis betting*(betting odds recorded at 23:20 GMT on March 23rd, 2021 at Bet365).

There is a potential quarter-final clash with Denis Shapovalov to come, before potentially going up against Andrey Rublev in the semi-finals.

Once again Tsitsipas will have his work cut out for him.

Other to note

Marton Fuscovics has put a fairly decent season together as well. The world number 40 is 12-4 for the year.

The Bulgarian reached the final of Rotterdam and then went to the quarter-finals in both tournaments on the recent Middle East swing.

America’s John Isner has been to the final in the last two editions of the ATP Miami 1000 Masters events.

So while he is a big outsider in terms of the outright ATP Miami tennis betting, he may be worth watching for a few early rounds.

Young Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime is a dangerous player floating around the draw. We haven’t quite seen the best of him this year, but the breakout potential is through the roof.

2019 Next Gen ATP Finals Champion Jannik Sinner is another of the youngsters to watch.

He goes as the 21st seed and he could meet 14th seed Karen Khachanov in the fourth round in what would be an intriguing match.

ATP Miami Tennis Betting Predictions

At the end of the day, the big guns on the ATP are usually the ones that are snapping up the Masters 1000 titles.

So it is a fascinating encounter in Miami without Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and to a lesser extent, Dominic Thiem in the way.

So the door is wide open for one of the next generation players to make their mark.

The two Russians at the head of the market in Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev are the form players to watch without question.

When it boils down to it, Medvedev would shade things at 21/10 outright as he looks as if he game take his game to those elite levels.

The draw though does seem to favour Rublev more, so we do see both players going deep.

If we boil down to a semi between Medvedev and Zverev in the top half, it would be hard to oppose the winner of that, in the final.

Winning half Top Half is at 8/11 and looks a reasonable long punt on ATP Miami Tennis betting*(betting odds recorded at 23:20 GMT on March 23rd, 2021 at Bet365)
