Following on from Bianca Andreescu’s landmark win at Indian Wells last time out, the intrigue around the WTA Tour is at an all-time high. It seems anyone is capable of beating anyone. The usual smattering of big names are joined by some of the most exiting prospects seen on the WTA Tour for many years; as such, the Miami Open promises to be a tournament to remember at the newly built Hard Rock Stadium. Here are our top WTA Miami Open quarter betting tips.
Quarter Betting Miami Open Predictions:
World number 1 and Australian Open champion Naomi Osaka has established herself as the woman to beat on the WTA Tour; as such, she’ll be keen to bounce back from a poor showing at Indian Wells last time out. The two-time Grand Slam winner is at the top of her game currently. She is the justified 11/10 favourite with Ladbrokes to progress from the top quarter of the draw.
Indian Wells finalist Angelique Kerber has been a staple at the top of the women’s game for the past 18 months. She would love a WTA Premier Mandatory event trophy in her cabinet in 2019. The Wimbledon champion looks a good bet at 3/1 with Bet365 to progress from quarter 1.
The big names pepper the top quadrant and Aryna Sabalenka will be looking to kick on in 2019 in Miami. The Belarussian has promised so far this term without picking up the tournament wins; therefore, she will be eager to put things right at 6/1 with BetHard.
Garbine Muguruza has endured an indifferent 12 months and she has dropped outside of the world’s top 20. The Spaniard is more than capable of troubling anyone on her day though; at 8/1 with TonyBet – could be a shrewd outside bet.
World number 3 Petra Kvitova is in the form of her life; therefore, she will be keen to add a Miami Open trophy to her already brimming cabinet. The Czech superstar looks to be well over her injury troubles and she is the justified favourite at 13/10 with BetHard to win the second quadrant.
Kiki Bertens is another player to have enjoyed an impressive start to 2019; as such, her seeding of 7 here in Miami is testament to that. The Dutch superstar is 4/1 with MansionBet to win the quarter – a bet that looks to represent good value.
Defending champion Ashleigh Barty has established herself inside the world’s top 15; therefore, she will be looking to kick on to the top 10 in an event she clearly loves. The Aussie hotshot is 5/1 with Bet365 to reach the last 4 yet again in 2019.
Home favourite Madison Keys has promised on the WTA Tour for a couple of seasons; however, she hasn’t necessarily produced the results on the big occasions. She is seeded 17th here in Miami and at 12/1 with Royal Panda – could trouble some of the ‘bigger’ names this week.
Former world number 1 Karolina Pliskova has enjoyed a strong start to 2019; as such, she looks well placed to go deep here in Miami. Her run to the last 4 at the Australian Open was a reminder of her hard court prowess; so, at 2/1 with Bet-at-Home she is a solid bet here.
2017 US Open Champion Sloane Stephens is one of the biggest names in US tennis currently; therefore, we’re sure she will have plenty of support here in Miami. She hasn’t been all guns blazing in 2019; however, she looks more than capable of progressing from an open quarter here in Miami and at 7/2 with Betsson – she could be an excellent bet.
Belinda Bencic has enjoyed a stunning start to 2019 and looks to have put her injury problems well and truly behind her. Deep runs at Indian Wells and Dubai have been testament to her brilliant form; therefore, the Swiss superstar looks significantly overpriced here at 6/1 with Betfred to reach the semi-finals.
Latvian, Anastasija Sevastova, has struggled for form thus far in 2019; however, she possesses plenty of tools that could be useful on the speedy Miami courts. Her seeding of 11 will protect her in the early rounds and at 14/1 with BetBright she could be a clever outside bet.
Eight-time Miami Open champion Serena Williams will be looking to demonstrate form and fitness in an event she has played some of her best tennis at over the years. She is 2/1 with Unibet to reach yet another semi-final in Miami.
World number 2 Simona Halep continues to search for dominance on the WTA tour; so, the Romanian superstar will be keen to win the event here and climb back to number 1 in the rankings. She finds herself in a congested quarter. At 7/2 with Coral to reach the last 4 this week, she knows she will have to be at her best.
Ukrainian Elina Svitolina has consistently proven herself on the WTA Tour without necessarily winning the events to back up her significant potential. She is seeded 6th here in Miami and will enjoy the speedy courts. At 9/2 with Ladbrokes – could be the value bet in a tough quarter to call.
Another of the home-grown favourites Danielle Collins will be looking to continue her meteoric rise on the WTA Tour in 2019. Her run to the last 4 at the Australian Open captured the hearts of the American public; as such, she will be keen to put on a performance in front of home fans. She looks well placed to do so at 8/1 with William Hill to win quarter 4.
