Indian Wells, along with Miami Open, are the two biggest tournaments of the year other than the Grand Slams. The tournament is played on hard courts and it is the best attended tennis tournament outside the four Majors and they have the second largest tennis stadium in the world, behind Arthur Ashe in New York. I will place some outright bets for this tournament, including a couple speculative bets.
Madison Keys have been out injured since October and is making her comeback in this tournament. She has basically no results to show for in this tournament previously, but her potential is undeniable. The American has a good draw and if she is fit, she could go far in this tournament and give us a chance to lay her odds on a later stage and secure profit. Unibet offers 101.00 for Keys to go all the way.
Agnieszka Radwanska have shown unusual poor form lately, and that is of course the reason why last years’ semi-finalist got an outright odds of 25.00 at Unibet. She has received a good draw, and will most probably win the first couple of rounds with ease, making her odds drop and giving us an opportunity to hedge the bet. She has a final and a semifinal in Indian Wells in the last three tournaments.
On the other side of the draw, we have Serena Williams as a big favorite. She hasn’t won Indian Wells since 2001, but she boycotted the tournament due to a racist incident for 13 years. She has reached a semi-final and a final after she returned to Indian Wells and I struggle to see who can stop her this year. Bet365 offers 3.25 for Serena and I will play that. She won the Australian Open without dropping in set, and has, by far, the biggest potential on the WTA Tour. Karolina Pliskova will probably be the biggest threat to the Australian Open champion.
