ATP Miami Futures Betting Preview, Plus First Round Picks

After an exciting week of tennis from Indian Wells — capped off by a scintillating final in arguably the (best of three) match of the year — we look ahead to the next ATP Masters tournament stateside: the Miami Open.

In today’s piece, I will take a deeper look at all four quarters, projecting the quarterfinal matchup for each, while noting any futures I fancy. I will close with what bets I like in the first round.
