- ATP Toronto Masters is the first major men’s tournament since Wimbledon.
- Carlos Alcaraz is the No. 1 seed and a +145 betting favorite at BetMGM.
- Alcaraz will face plenty of strong challengers on Toronto’s hardcourt.
- Pablo Carreno Busta won last year’s tournament but isn’t in the draw this week.
The sprawling world of tennis betting is getting its first major action since Wimbledon this week. That’s because the main draw of the Rogers Cup begins Monday, Aug. 7.
Both the men’s and women’s tournaments are 1000-level events, meaning they’re only behind the four Grand Slam tournaments in terms of importance and prestige.
The men’s tournament is held in Toronto, while the women’s tournament is held separately (but concurrently) as WTA Montreal.
Toronto Open Odds for Friday, Aug.11
|Mackenzie McDonald||-155||A. D. Fokina||+125|
|Daniil Medvedev||-350||Alex de Minaur||+250|
|Carlos Alcaraz||-500||Tommy Paul||+360|
|Jannik Sinner||-350||Gael Monfils||+270|
Toronto Masters Draw
Since the Toronto Masters is a major tournament, it’s unsurprising to see current world No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz at the top of the draw.
Alcaraz is better known as a dominant clay court player, but he has flexed his prowess over the last 12 months on courts of all varieties. He is the reigning champion at both Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, which means he’s a very dangerous favorite in Toronto. At +145, and with Novak Djokovic absent from the field, Alcaraz may even be a little underpriced.
While it will be difficult for bettors to identify just one challenger, ATP Toronto does field a deep lineup of potential winners.
Daniil Medvedev is always dangerous on hardcourt and is a rightful second option in the table at +400, but there’s also Jannik Sinner, Stefanos Tsitsipas, Andrey Rublev, Taylor Fritz, and Cameron Norrie – all top-15 players who play effectively on hardcourt.
Norrie likely offers the best pure value at +5000, but the Brit hasn’t won a match on hardcourt since Indian Wells. He flamed out last week in his first match at Los Cabos to Aleksandar Kovacevic, who is currently ranked outside the ATP top 100.
Last year’s winner, Pablo Carreno Busta, will not defend his 2022 title this week, as he is recovering from a nagging elbow injury. He hasn’t played since ATP Rotterdam in February but is hoping to return for the U.S. Open later this month.
