Alexander Bublik vs J.J. Wolf Prediction and Odds: Miami Open 2023

After less-than-stellar performances at Indian Wells, Alexander Bublik and J.J. Wolf start afresh at the Miami Open. Prior duels between the duo have finished in favour of the American, who is the bookmakers’ favourite to progress in this meeting.

The odds in this article were correct at the time of writing, and odds are subject to change. We recommend checking with the bookmaker before placing the bet.

Alexander Bublik vs J.J. Wolf – Match Predictions

Bublik continues to march forward with passion and will march head-first in this qualifying duel with crowd favourite Wolf. He has come up short at each of their last two duels and will be looking to set the record straight in this meeting.

Wolf To Win 1st Set

The 24-year-old American likes to start games on the attack. This was on display against Marton Fucsovics, where he took the first set 6-1. However, he could not keep the momentum and crashed out of the BNP Paribas Open as a consequence. Bublik’s defeat in the semi-finals of the Phoenix Challenger and Indian Wells saw his straggling in the first step. With Wolf seeking a third win over the Kazakh star, we should see the first set conclude in favour of the American.

Under 23.5 Total Games

Their first duel finished with just 18 games, 6-3 and 6-3 in favour of Wolf. The following meeting in Florence was more competitive at 6-3, 7-5 and 6-1 in the 24-year-old’s favour. The American took time off for a better showing in Miami while Bublik might be fatigued with the travelling and additional Challenger series competition. Based on this, we are backing an Under 23.5 games conclusion to this meeting.

Our predictions for this match have now been established, let’s see how these players will fare in this tournament.

Alexander Bublik

The Kazakh star has been active this year to say the least. His best run came up in the Marseille Open, where he reached the semi-finals, beating Grigor Dimitrov in the process. After getting knocked out at the first hurdle in Indian Wells, he reached the quarter-final of the Phoenix Challenger, bowing out at the hands of Jan-Lennard Struff.

Jeffrey John Wolf

Wolf started the 2023 campaign brightly, reaching the 1/8 finals of the Australian Open. He followed it up with strong performances in the Dallas Open. The 24-year-old reached the semifinals, where he came up short of compatriot John Isner. It has been a downward trajectory since, losing his last three matches in succession.
