Previously known as the Indian Wells Masters, the now-called BNP Paribas Open is the first of nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 tournaments. The tournament showcases the best men and women players at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden from March 8-18, 2018.
The BNP Paribas Open is the largest combined (men and women) ATP World Tour and WTA Premier tennis tournament on the planet. With this distinction, it is considered “the fifth major.” Only Wimbledon, the Australian Open, the French Open and the U.S. Open are larger in attendance and prize money.
The event routinely sets the bar for tennis tournaments across the globe, and it has been voted the best tournament in its category many times throughout the years. The Stadium 1 is the second-largest tennis venue in the world, only rivaled by Arthur Ashe Stadium, which is home to the US Open and located in Flushing Meadows, New York.
The hardcourt event is fielded with 96 players from both the men's and the women's tour so there are plenty of opportunities for betting. There are always upsets, but it is rare a player from outside the world's top 32 comes out atop the odds to win the tournament.
Already craving for high-level tennis action? Fear not. The best tennis players in the world will descend up Indian Wells for the 2017 BNP Paribas Open. Tennis bettors will have a fantastic opportunity to profit with the vast majority of the world’s finest tennis stars in town.
World No. 1 Andy Murray will be joined by Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka, Rafael Nadal and Australian Open champion, Roger Federer, while on the women’s side of the draw Serena Williams will look to claim her third title at Indian Wells. The likes of Angelique Kerber and Karolina Pliskova will look to dethrone the mighty Williams sister.
The outdoor hardcourts at Indian Wells are firm and bouncy, which will play into the hands of the power hitters. Keep that in mind as you place your wagers with one of our recommended sportsbooks.
