Alexandre Muller vs Andy Murray prediction and odds: Qatar Open 2024

If you’ve tracked my rundown of the ATP schedule 2024, you’ll know that February is full of exciting tournaments. The Qatar Open is one of them, and this first-round match between Muller and Murray should get things started with a bang. As for my predictions, these are covered within.

Our favourite Alexandre Muller vs Andy Murray predictions

To create my tennis predictions today for this match, I’ve looked at several factors. These include the form of each player, the head-to-head records, and their suitability for hard-court tennis. Taking all of these factors into account, I believe that the following predictions showcase the most suitable wagers for Muller vs Murray:

Murray to win @ 5/6 (1.83)

Murray has been in pretty poor form during the 2024 season. In fact, he has struggled to win matches, even against the most basic of opponents – by his standards. However, he played well in this tournament in 2023, and for a man of his qualities, his run of bad form has to end at some point. Furthermore, since he has beaten Muller before, I feel he will turn things around and win this one.

Murray -1.5 games handicap @ 1/1 (2.00)

It’s pretty rare to get such odds on Murray to beat a player like Alexandre Muller. And since you can get 1/1 odds on Murray to score a -1.5 games handicap against a player ranked 75 in the world, for me – this is unmissable. 

Alexandre Muller vs Andy Murray odds

Murray has an implied probability of 54.50% to win this match, while the chance for Muller to win is 52.40%. 

Can Murray turn things around against a qualifier in Qatar?

Are you fully aware of the kind of form that these guys are in at the moment? If not, the following previews should help clear things up:

Alexandre Muller preview

Muller is ranked 75th in the world right now, which means he had to qualify for the main draw of the 2024 Qatar Open. That said, he has won more matches than Andy Murray this season, and he has won two to even reach the main draw here. So I’m sure he will fancy his chances in this round-one clash.

Andy Murray preview

Because of Murray’s slump in form in 2024, he has slipped down to 50 in the world. However, Murray did play Muller in Doha last season, and he beat the Frenchman in three sets. But then again, Murray won’t be feeling confident, so he will need to rely on his experience and fighting spirit to finally produce a main draw win here.

Muller vs Murray head to head

These two guys faced-off in 2023 in Doha, and it was Murray who emerged with the victory by a score of 6-2 in the final set. This means that the current head-to-head for these two is 1-0 in Murray’s favour.
