Tennis betting predictions | Year-end first place
Always the most talked about and famous pre-season market on Tennis betting predictions, Carlos Alcaraz won it at a big price in 2022. Despite how brilliantly the young Spaniard performed, there were certainly key factors other than his brilliance that contributed to the outcome. Novak Djokovic did not compete in two of the four Grand Slams, and the one he did win (Wimbledon) earned him no ranking points.

In sum, if things had been ‘normal,’ I’m certain the Serb would have finished first rather than fifth. Given how brilliantly he performed when he did return to the court in 2022 tennis betting predictions– he won the ATP Finals as well as Wimbledon – Djokovic is the clear favorite today. He’s odds-on with multiple bookmakers, and OKBET may be taking a chance by providing 6/4 on him finishing the year as the top dog for the eighth time in a row.
However, as things stand, he is still unable to enter the United States, and it’s possible that Wimbledon may be obliged to ban Russians again, which would likely result in ranking points evaporating once again. In summary, the troubles that plagued Djokovic in 2022 may plague him again in 2023, therefore it’s worth considering possible value elsewhere in this market.
While current rankings leader Alcaraz has a top price of 3/1 (OKBET), his past Grand Slam results have been a touch unimpressive, and he definitely suffered following his first Slam triumph, finishing the season with an abdominal injury.
If his results at the season-ending ATP Finals had gone against him, Alcaraz might have been deposed as world number one, and one of the individuals who had a chance to do so in Turin was CASPER RUUD.
In the end tennis betting predictions, the Norwegian fell short – by 1,000 points – but I don’t believe he should be a 25/1 shot in this market. Ruud reached two Grand Slam finals in 2023, at Roland Garros and the US Open, demonstrating his versatility on clay and hardcourts.
He was also the runner-up in the ATP Finals and is a player who does not seem to be getting enough recognition. Of course, it’s a long shot, but I don’t believe it’s as far as the chances say that the current number three can close the 1,000-point difference and become the top dog in 2023.
It’s also worth contemplating a similar wager, OKBET’s 4/1 that Ruud will be ranked first at any time in 2023 for the Tennis betting predictions. Ruud has just 420 points to defend until the Miami Open in mid-March (Alcaraz has 950), and the top ranking will be on the line at the Australian Open.
If the opportunity is not grabbed there, the claycourt season may provide another. While Ruud has a lot to defend at Roland Garros after reaching the final in 2022, Alcaraz must first build on his championship wins in Barcelona and Madrid.
to place in the top eight
I usually like this market, which is simply predicting who will qualify for the season-ending ATP Finals. Five of this year’s participants (Djokovic, Nadal, Medvedev, Ruud, and Tsitsipas) are favorites to return to Turin, as are two who lost out due to injury (Alcaraz and Zverev).
ANDREY RUBLEV, who did participate in those Finals, seems to be a reasonable price for a recurrence. In the previous two years at the Tennis betting predictions, the Russian has been in the top eight for all but eight weeks. In 2023, he’ll be aiming for his fourth straight top-eight finish.
While it’s true that he hasn’t been able to properly make his imprint against the game’s top – he has failed to get beyond the quarter-finals of the Slams and has yet to win a Masters 1000 championship – Rublev has been highly consistent and has often earned wins at a lesser level.
He’s a player with power that defies his stature, and it’s very likely that he’ll be able to improve his game rather than regress in the following season. He is, after all, just 25 years old and Tennis betting predictions.
In terms of lengthier pictures, I favor the aesthetic of the aforementioned Musetti and DENIS SHAPOVALOV for the Tennis betting predictions. I haven’t given up on Shapovalov, who finished in the top 10 in 2020, and he might be worth a chance at 11/2.
Shapovalov concluded 2022 by assisting Canada in winning the Davis Cup (I might say that I picked them to win at 33/1!) and we’ve seen how it has proven to be a good basis for larger things in the past – consider Novak Djokovic in 2011 and Andy Murray in 2016 and Tennis betting predictions. Both finished the year as world champions.
That is unlikely to happen with Shapovalov, but a top-eight finish is not out of the question.
