The BNP Paribas open is known as the fifth grand slam, and should be an exciting tournament. Our guide to betting on the tournament brings you the best Indian wells odds!

Novak Djokovic

Best Indian Wells ATP Odds at NetBet Sportsbook

  • Djokovic at 1.55 (5/9)
  • Raonic at 18.00 (17/1)
  • Thiem at 45.00 (44/1)
  • Del Potro at 149.00 (148/1) – Best Odds!

It’s hard to see past the three-time winner, especially as Federer, who he beat in the two previous finals, is out. Last season, “Djokovic to Win” was one the most safe bets in sports, and there’s no reason to think that it’s going to change any time soon. No need to analyze his draw: the Serb is favorite against everyone.

Andy Murray

The recent father is usually Novak’s closest challenger, but his history at this tournament doesn’t bode well. He’s more of a Miami guy, and has only reached the IW final once: in 2009, when he lost to Rafael Nadal. Don’t write him off, but the best Indian Wells odds are elsewhere on NetBet Sportsbook.

Stan Wawrinka

Stan the Man is another player whose Indian Wells history doesn’t make for happy reading. He’s in good form though, after winning the ATP 500 event in Dubai, and the Chennia 250 in January. He’s a good bet to make it to the quarter finals for the third time but, as in 2008 and 2011, this should be his limit.

Milos Raonic

The ever-improving Canadian reached the quarters here in 2014, and the semis last year; he’ll be hoping to go one better this week. His powerful game is perfectly suited to the conditions, and he should be very tough to beat. His powerful serve can make him vulnerable to injury, and he missed the Davis Cup thanks to an abductor tear. If he has fully recovered, he could be a real threat.

Kei Nishikori

The Japanese number 1 played possibly the best match of 2016 so far last weekend, in the Davis Cup against Andy Murray. Sadly for him, despite coming back from two sets down, he still lost the thrilling contest. On his day, Nishikori can be as exciting as anyone on tour. He should make a career best performance of at least the quarter finals: whether his body can hold out for longer is uncertain.

Nick Kyrgios

This may well be the year that Kyrgios becomes the star he has seemed destined to become ever since he burst onto the scene. He won Marseilles with ease, beating Gasquet, Berdych, and Cillic without breaking a sweat. He then reached the final of Dubai, only to retire through injury. He says he’ll be fit, and if he is, his powerful dynamism could take him all the way.

Rafael Nadal

If you reckon the Spaniard still has greatness in him, NetBet Sportsbook have him at 26.00 (25/1) to win Indian Wells. If he’d has this price a few years ago it would have made gambling news as the best Indian wells odds, if not the best tennis odds of the year. However, many just don’t see him as a top contender. His fight will take him so far, but nowadays he struggles to maintain the power that saw him become one of the all-time greats.

Dominic Thiem

The Austrian is having a breakthrough season, winning in Buenos Aires and then the ATP 500 event in Acapulco. So far in 2016 only Djokovic and Murray have earned more ranking points. He looks like he will be a top player; this week he has a chance to show he already is.

Aleksandr Dolgopolov

The unorthodox Ukrainian isn’t particularly consistent, but he can bamboozle even the smartest opponents. He reached the semi-finals here in 2014, only falling to Roger Federer;  the Swiss legend won’t be there to stop Dologpolov this time. If he goes on a run he could come up against Djokovic and – though he has never beaten the Novak – each time he’s played him on hard courts he has taken at least a set.

Juan Martin Del Potro

Juan Martin is the romantic choice in our selection of the best Indian Well odds. He reached the final the last time he played the tournament, but that was back in 2013. Since then, his career has been blighted by injury: he dropped outside the top 1000, playing only 14 competitive matches in two years. However, the well-loved Argentine is back and hoping to make up for lost time. He won the 2009 US Open, so he has the talent; and at 27, he’s young enough to get back to the top. If his troublesome wrists hold out, his  price to win at 149.00 (148/1) on NetBet Sportsbook looks like one of the best Indian Wells odds, at least if you bet on sports in Argentina!
