Elise Mertens vs Coco Gauff prediction and odds: Indian Wells 2024

Ready for another set of tennis predictions today in relation to the 2024 Indian Wells event? I’ve got just what you are looking for! As for the specific predictions that will be discussed here, I’ve got some top markets for you to check out with respect to the upcoming match between Mertens and Gauff.

Our favourite Elise Mertens vs Coco Gauff predictions

The fourth round of any 1000 event is typically when some of the higher seeds will face one another. On that note, coming up on March 13th, it’s time for the 24th seed to face the 3rd seed in what promises to be a tight contest. That said, Coco Gauff was one of the names I picked in my initial Indian Wells 2024 preview as a possible title contender.

But will she follow up on her potential in this event? The two predictions outlined below give you an idea. 

Mertens to win a set – yes @ 21/20 (2.05)

The first of my two predictions is for Elise Mertens to take a set from the number three seed. She has achieved this twice in the past, so really, she could go all the way and take down Gauff in this match. But since that would be overly speculative, I’ve chosen this market instead.

Over 20.5 games @ 4/5 (1.80)

Since I really do believe that Mertens will take a set against Coco Gauff in this fourth round match, I feel it’s appropriate to cover this market as well. After all, Gauff is a true fighter, and she will fight to the very end to get the win. Therefore, I believe the chances that this match could have over 20.5 games is very high. 

Elise Mertens vs Coco Gauff odds

The implied probability of a win for Mertens here is 26.70%, which is much lower than the chance for Gauff to win at 80%.

Moving away from my predictions now, let me give you a quick yet important preview of each of the participants in this match right here. 

Elise Mertens preview

As things stand, Elise Mertens is ranked 28 in the world. Yet, because of a few withdrawals from the event, she is seeded 24 in Indian Wells. As for her results so far, they’ve been impressive and consistent. Not only did she take out Wang in straight sets, but she backed this up with a convincing win against Naomi Osaka in the previous round too. 

Coco Gauff preview

It goes without saying that Coco Gauff is the favourite to beat Elise Mertens here. After all, she is ranked third in the world at the moment, and she is the current US Open champion. Such accolades are not attained by chance, although she now faces a Belgian player who is playing great tennis. 

Mertens vs Gauff head to head

The head-to-head between these two is 3-0 in Gauff’s favour. But of these three wins, Mertens has pushed Gauff to a deciding set on two of the three occasions. So they’ve clearly had some battles in the past.
