The final match of the tournament in Miami is upon us – and, for the umpteenth time, Novak Djokovic will be coming into the finals as the favorite.
Match: Novak Djokovic vs Andy Murray
Selection: Novak Djokovic (-4 games)
Best Odds: 1.83 @ Pinnacle
Those of you who took their time and checked out our tournament preview will already be quite happy, as John Isner and Tomas Berdych both made it to the semi-finals, winning their quarters and landing some nice odds for us in the process. Apart from the two bets, we have also tipped Andy Murray to win the event, although that prediction has kept in mind that Djokovic was quite likely to struggle after the long two weeks in Indian Wells.
Surprisingly, the Serb has made it through to the finals despite facing some serious problems in a few matches, most notably against Aleksandr Dolgopolov, who really should have beaten the world’s number one a few rounds ago. However, he is now going to get a day off ahead of the finals and that means that he will be a big favorite against Murray tomorrow.
If you have an outright bet on Murray, it might be a good idea to just let it run, but, if you just want to have a bet on the finals, we would very much recommend backing Novak Djokovic. He is the man to beat at the moment, he has a lot of wins under his belt from recent times, and he also has the mental edge over Andy Murray right now, as he has already beaten him twice in this season. Murray has improved somewhat since their last contest in Indian Wells, but we do not believe that he has improved enough to win the trophy.
