ATP 2023 Cincinnati Masters Odds Analysis, Betting Favorites, and Predictions

The Western & Southern Open, also known as the Cincinnati Open or Cincinnati Masters, is an ATP 1000 hard-court event and one of the oldest tournaments in the world.

It was first held in 1899 and has taken place every year at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Cincinnati since 1979. There’s $6.6 million in prize money up for grabs this year with a stacked draw as players prepare for the upcoming US Open.

That said, let’s take a closer look at the upcoming Western & Southern Open tournament so you can bet against the ATP betting lines.

Past Champions

Borna Coric is the defending champion, having beaten Stefanos Tsitsipas in straight sets in last year’s final. Alexander Zverev won in 2021, beating Andrey Rublev in the final.

Novak Djokovic won his second title in Cincinnati in 2020. Other past winners include Daniil Medvedev (2019) and Grigor Dimitrov (2016). Roger Federer, Andy Murray, and Rafael Nadal were the only players to win the event from 2007 to 2015.


A Look at the Draw

With a 56-player field, the top eight seeds receive draws into the second round. In the top half of the draw, Carlos Alcaraz, Casper Ruud, Tsitsipas, and Rublev are all automatically through to the second round, while Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev, Jannik Sinner, and Holger Rune are all through in the bottom half. That means the draw stacks up with a potential Alcaraz-Djokovic showdown in the finals.


Cincinnati Masters First-Round Bets

Alex de Minaur (-188) vs. J.J. Wolf (+150)

This is one worth keeping an eye on as it’s possible Alex de Minaur could be a late withdrawal considering he’s into the finals at the National Bank Open in Toronto, Canada, on Sunday and would have to play in consecutive days. If he does play, however, he should be able to carry his momentum from Canada onto the hard courts in Cincinnati.

De Minaur has struggled this year, at least based on expectations, but is 9-1 in his last ten matches and proving himself as a legitimate contender for the US Open. He’s 1-0 in his career against J.J. Wolf, who has lost two matches in a row and is just 11-9 on outdoor hard court this season.

Brandon Nakashima (-138) vs. Stan Wawrinka (+110)

Maybe it’s because Nakashima, as the American, will have home court advantage, but he probably shouldn’t be the favorite in this match. There’s plenty of value in betting on the veteran Stan Wawrinka, who is 7-3 in his last ten matches, compared to Nakashima, who is 3-7.

Wawrinka also won the last match between the two in 2022 and has a better record on the hard court this year against tougher competition.

Cincinnati Masters Finals Prediction

Anything can happen in a tournament with such a loaded field, but it’s hard to imagine Alcaraz not advancing to the final through the top half of the bracket. He’s coming off of a disappointing result in Canada, losing for just the fifth time this season, and has had a few days to rest and recover.

At the same time, Djokovic hasn’t played since Wimbledon and should be just as motivated to get back on track after losing to Alcaraz in the semis. I’d expect an Alcaraz-Djokovic final, with Djokovic emerging as the champion.
