Carlos Alcaraz is all the rage among those who bet on tennis, and he’s a value pick for the ATP: Rolex Paris Masters this week.
The best players in the world embark on France, including tournament favorite Novak Djokovic.
Apart from the grand slams, it doesn’t get much bigger than this.
Spaniard at Value Odds
20-year-old Alcaraz might no longer be the top player in the world, but he’s easily good enough to beat Djokovic.
Nothing against the Serbian superstar, but Djokovic was seen at the Rugby World Cup taking in the sights and sounds, and we’re not sure if he’s fully focused on this tournament.
Either way, we know Alcaraz will come in wanting a Masters 1000 victory. He was a two-time grand slam champion early in his career and will add many more titles to his record.
We were surprised by his Round of 16 exit in Shanghai when he lost to Gregor Dimitrov, but he’s overdue a winning performance after also being beaten by Jannik Sinner at the China Open.
Medvedev Eyes Silverware
Daniil Medvedev was a beaten finalist at the Vienna Open and the China Open, both times by Sinner, but he has a good chance of winning in Paris.
The beaten US Open finalist is on the third line with tennis betting odds, and he’s worth having on your ticket.
The Russian said he could meet Sinner in the final again later this year, eyeing the Paris Masters.
“Big congrats to Jannik. It was a tough match, at one moment I thought I maybe could get you,” Medvedev said. “I didn’t manage to do it. As I said already three times this year, hopefully we can play more finals, maybe even this year. Big congrats to you, you’re playing great, finishing the year strong.”
Medvedev always gives bettors a good sight, which is why he’s another value tennis betting pick. He has been playing consistently, and the hard courts are right up his alley.

Sinner Playing Like an Angel
Sinner is the hottest player in tennis at the moment, having won two titles since the US Open.
The Italian has always been on the verge of breaking through to the elite level, and although he doesn’t have a grand slam win on his record, most players on the ATP Tour don’t.
His form in the back end of 2023 has been sublime, and he has been beating most of the best players in the world.
The 22-year-old defeated Medvedev to win in Vienna and China, and although beaten by American Ben Shelton in Shanghai, he bounced back beautifully.
ATP Paris Masters betting markets have Sinner at value odds to win, and although getting past Djokovic and Alcaraz is a tough ask, he has more confidence than most.
It could be a coming-of-age tournament for Sinner, and we don’t want to jump off his back.
Shelton: Best of the Americans
We have been impressed with the play from Ben Shelton, who won the Japan Open before losing to Sinner in the Round of 32 in Vienna.
The 21-year-old has been a good bet throughout the year, and betting online markets have him at long odds to win the Paris Masters.
He’s ranked 15th, so he will face a tough opponent in the earlier rounds. However, as he showed when beating Sinner at the Shanghai Masters, he can’t be overlooked.
He later lost to Sam Korda in the quarter final 7-6, 2-6, 6-7, but he lost no admirers with that performance. He went down fighting in the tiebreak, and he’ll be better for the experience.
Shelton is still learning the game, and he could rise to another level in Paris.
