Andy Murray vs Ugo Humbert prediction and odds: Dubai Open 2024

Have you already checked my ATP Dubai Open preview for the event this week? If so, you’ll be fully aware that many big names are involved. And for this second-round match, we have Andy Murray vs the number 5 seed, Ugo Humbert, to look forward to. But which way will it go? 

Our favourite Andy Murray vs Ugo Humbert predictions

The objective here is to give you a selection of tennis predictions today that can be applied to the upcoming second-round clash between Murray and Humbert. Both guys came through their first rounds in three sets against tough opponents. And to add to that, Murray has a 2-0 lead over Humbert in the head-to-head department.

However, how do the markets look, and what are the best value options for this match? Let me show you.

Murray to win a set – yes @ 8/13 (1.62)

Based on the way that Murray played against Shapovalov in his opener, I feel he will snag a set from Humbert in this game. They both have similar styles, yet Murray is more effective on the attack when he hits top gear. At the same time, he has beaten Humbert in both previous meetings.

Over 22.5 games @ 10/11 (1.91)

Although I think that Murray will win a set against Humbert, I don’t think the match as a whole will be straightforward. In fact, Murray seems to love these long matches, and I can see this one going the distance if both men bring their best tennis. 

Andy Murray vs Ugo Humbert odds

As per the latest odds, the implied probability of a win for Murray is 38.50%, while the chance of a win for Humbert is 67.70%.

Will Murray make it back-to-back wins in the 2024 Dubai Open?

Of course, only one guy can win this match and reach the quarter-finals. And while I’ve shared my predictions above, let me take a more neutral stance now with two quick previews.

Andy Murray preview

We all know that Murray has been having a bit of a howler this season. But in order to change a bad run, it just takes one decent win to ignite that spark, and Murray got that win yesterday. Furthermore, he does hold two wins over Humbert, which could influence things for this game, yet only time will tell.

Ugo Humbert preview

Humbert has been in great form this season. He captured a title in Marseille just a couple of weeks back, beating the likes of Davidovich Fokina, Hurkacz, and Dimitrov. And he beat the very dangerous Gael Monfils in his opener in Dubai. So clearly, Murray will have his hands full against this tricky Frenchman.

Murray vs Humbert head to head

The head-to-head between Murray and Humbert is 2-0 in favour of the Scotsman. However, these matches were played back in 2021 and 2019, and Murray won both in a deciding set.
