Best Men’s Indian Wells Open odds

The favourite: Medvedev (+200)

A quick look at Medvedev’s recent results shows why he’s a deserving favourite entering the tournament.

The 27-year-old superstar has 14 consecutive wins, claiming titles at the Dubai Tennis Championships, the Qatar Open and the Rotterdam Open.

Notable wins during this stretch include victories over Novak Djokovic, Andrey Rublev, Andy Murray, Jannik Sinner and a pair over Auger-Aliassime.

Despite winning plenty of singles tournaments, Medvedev has never won at Indian Wells. He was cruising at last year’s event before abruptly losing in straight sets to Grigor Dimitrov in the fourth round.

With Djokovic withdrawing due to a failed attempt to enter the U.S. because of his vaccination status, Medvedev’s the man to beat.

Canadian men’s odds

Auger-Aliassime (+1,500) has the shortest odds of any Canadian and the sixth-best overall to win the tournament.

This tournament hasn’t treated him kindly, as he hasn’t advanced beyond the third round in four appearances.

The 22-year-old hasn’t been able to string together positive results, failing to qualify for the quarterfinals at any event in 2023. In his defence, he and Medvedev have battled twice already, with the latter winning each contest.

Still, a straight-sets loss to Lorenzo Sonego in his most recent match is puzzling for the inconsistent Auger-Aliasssime.

His fellow countryman, Denis Shapovalov, has even more questions surrounding him.

Shapovalov has lost four of his last five contests, losing any positive energy he may have gained from a surprisingly strong fall.

With +12,000 odds, Shapovalov is much further down the board. His best result at this tournament is a fourth-round appearance in 2019.

Best Women’s Indian Wells Open odds

The favourite: Swiatek (+180)

If Swiatek’s in a tournament, she’s the favourite. There’s no debating that.

The Polish tennis sensation is a daunting task for any opponent, excelling in all facets of the game. She has one tournament victory (Qatar Open) in 2023 and was the runner-up at her most recent event, the Dubai Tennis Championships.

Swiatek has eight wins in her last nine matches and will be defending her title at Indian Wells after winning the tournament in 2022.

Canadian women’s odds

Andreescu (+3,000) is tied for the eighth-best odds to win this tournament and that’s largely due to her previous success in it.

The Canadian is a former winner of the Indian Wells Open, taking home the title in 2019. Andreescu has made one tournament appearance since, advancing to the third round in 2021. She did not compete in last year’s event.

Aside from being a former champion, there isn’t a whole lot else working in her favour.

Andreescu has lost three consecutive matches on the hard court despite having an impressive 139-58 career record on the surface.

Health may be an issue for Andreescu after withdrawing from the Thailand Open last month due to an apparent shoulder and neck injury.

Fernandez (+7,000) is much further down the board, but her recent results are a little more encouraging than Andreescu’s.

Fernandez’s last match was a two-set loss to Swiatek, but she does have three wins in her last five appearances.

The Canadian is 98-56 on the hard court in her career and has advanced to the fourth round in each of the last two Indian Wells Opens.
