Tennis Betting Tip: ATP Indian Wells

The first Masters 1000 event of the year gets underway at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden this week, with a host of big names looking to get their hands on the trophy. With reigning champion Juan Martin Del Potro having withdrawn from the tournament due to injury, the likes of Novak Djokovic, Rafa Nadal and Roger Federer are among the favourites for the title, with some of the world’s leading players kick-starting their preparations for what is a very busy time in the tennis calendar.

Having captured yet another Grand Slam title at the Australian Open earlier this year, Djokovic is perhaps unsurprisingly the name on many people’s lips, with the world number one having returned to the very top of his game over recent months. Meanwhile, Federer shows no signs of slowing down, with the 37-year-old having won his 100th ATP Tour title in Dubai last week. Federer was last year’s beaten finalist in Indian Wells, while the Swiss legend also holds the record for the number of tournament wins here, joint with Djokovic.

Elsewhere, there are a host of other big names to look out for this week, including the likes of Nick Kyrgios, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexandar Zverev. All are capable of beating anyone on their day, with Kyrgios having beaten the likes of Nadal, Stan Warwinka and John Isner in winning the Mexican Open just last week. So, let’s take a look at how the betting odds for Indian Wells currently look.

Indian Wells: Our Top Tips

Whilst betting on the outright winner of a tennis tournament is something of a lottery, with so many top players having the ability to win throughout the week, backing the likes of Djokovic and Nadal to come out on top is potentially worth doing. However, our top tip for Indian Wells this week is to bet on Nick Kyrgios reaching the last four, a market which is available at odds of 11/2 with bookmaker Paddy Power. The Australian talent was victorious in Mexico last week and will certainly enjoy playing on the big stage once more.
