Our Tips for Betting on the Miami ATP Masters 1000
If you are looking to place bets on the ATP MIami tournament, then you need to do some research first. To improve your chances of making winning bets, read the totally free views of our tennis betting experts. Below we have a list of factors that need to be taken into consideration:
Analyze players' form
It is important to look at the form of the players. There are plenty of statistics available online, so it is a good idea to access these and see how the players in this tournament have been getting on in recent weeks. Look to see who has been getting good results, especially against high ranked players.
Take into account the playing surface
The next piece of advice is to consider what kind of surface the tournament is taking place on. This is an outdoor hard court event, one of the most common on the circuit. The surface a match is played on is important. Some players prefer grass or clay so always look at how well players have performed on each surface.
Look at the head-to-head results
Some players just don’t seem to do well against others on the circuit. Many lose regularly to Carlos Alcaraz, so that gets in their head and makes it difficult to get a win the next time they play. Again with head-to-head results, you need to look at the surface a match has been played on. Also you need to look at how many sets were played in the previous meetings. Look at the head-to-head results and pay particular attention to those that were played on this surface.
Observe the tournament history
It is a good idea to look at the past performances of the players taking part in this tournament. Take a look at the previous holdings of the Miami Masters and see which players have enjoyed success and who tends to lose early on..
Look at the ATP rankings
It is important to see where each of the players is ranked in the world. You might not be too familiar with some of the players in the main draw. A quick look at the rankings will show you how high or low they are. Have a look also at the ranking points that have been earned so far in 2023, that's a good form guide. For example, the pressure is on Carlos Alcaraz in this tournamet. He has to win it to remain world number one. If he doesn't Novak Djokovic will return to the top of the rankings.

Our Predictions on the Winner of the ATP Miami 1000
This looks like being an open tournament this year. Neither Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal will be playing in this tournament. The defending champion is Carlos Alcaraz and he's been in good form since returning from injury. He has played three tournaments (two on clay) and won two of them. That includes an impressive win at Indian Wells on March 19 when beating Daniil Medvedev in the final for the loss of only five games. Medvedev will again be a strong title challenger in this Miami tournament.
Cameron Norrie has also been regularly going deep in tournaments and has to be considered. Stefanos Tsitsipas reached the Australian Open final this year and is another for the shortlist. Taylor Fritz is another who could well get to the latter stages.
