Top Tennis Betting Picks of the Week (March 18th, 2024)

WTA – 2024 Miami Open Round 1 – Miami, FL

  • When: Wednesday, March 20th, 2024

Angelique Kerber vs. Sloane Stephens

On her way to the fourth round at the BNP Paribas Open, Angelique Kerber beat a couple of seeded opponents in Jelena Ostapenko and Veronika Kudermetova. Kerber lost to Caroline Wozniacki.

Sloane Stephens fell in the third round to Daria Kasatkina. But Stephens played well, recording a first set victory before losing 4-6, 4-6. Sloane scores the win.

Tennis Betting Pick: Sloane Stephens +120

Petra Martic vs. Claire Liu

Claire Liu had to qualify for the Miami Open by beating Greet Minnen and Kamilla Rakhimova. The win over Minnen wasn’t difficult. But Rakhimova pushed Liu to 3 sets and a tiebreaker.

Petra Martic fell to Angelique Kerber in the first round at the Paribas. Martic is just 4-6 in singles matches this season. Liu can pull off the upset win.

Tennis Betting Pick: Claire Liu +175

Naomi Osaka vs. Elisabetta Cocciaretto

Osaka won 2 matches at the BNP Paribas. The loss, in the third round against Elise Mertens, wasn’t bad.

But Elisabetta Cocciaretto won the Fifth Third Charleston 125 in her last. Granted, the tournament was at a much lower level. Still, the odds imply Osaka is a slam dunk, which isn’t the case.

Tennis Betting Pick: Elisabetta Cocciaretto +139

Zhu Lin vs. Marie Bouzkova

Zhu Lin is the favorite in this, but Lin didn’t have a decent Fifth Third Charleston 125. She lost in the fist round.

Marie Bouzkova is 5 years younger at 25 and won a singles match at the BNP Paribas Open before falling to Anastasia Potapova in the second round. Give Bouzkova the nod.

Tennis Betting Pick: Marie Bouzkova +155

Martina Trevisan vs. Storm Hunter

Underdog Martina Trevisan is 3-9 in singles matches this season. In her last, she bowed out in the second round at the Fifth Third Charleston 125.

Storm Hunter is 11-4 in singles matches. Although Hunter had to qualify for this, she should have no trouble taking down Trevisan in straight sets.

Tennis Betting Pick: Storm Hunter -208

Sofia Kenin vs. Katie Volynets

Kenin versus Volynets, a battle between two U.S. players, should be one of the day’s most competitive matches. Volynets is 14-6 in singles matches this season.

Kenin has gone 1-7. Sofia has to get her game together. It’s doubtful she has since the first round loss at the BNP Paribas Open.

Tennis Betting Pick: Katie Volynets -112

Karolina Pliskova vs. Donna Vekic

The favorite in this, Karolina Pliskova, bowed out in the first round at the BNP Paribas. Overall, though, Pliskova has gone 12-5 this season in singles matches.

Vekic is 8-6 in singles matches. This should be a good battle, but at the end, Karolina bounces back with a solid victory.

Tennis Betting Pick: Karolina Pliskova -154
