Lorenzo Musetti vs Daniil Medvedev prediction and odds: Cincinnati Open 2023

The 3rd seed, Daniil Medvedev, is set to take on the flashy Italian, Lorenzo Musetti in the second round of the Western & Southern Open today. It should be a great game, but what markets should you cover? Find out through my tennis predictions today, as shared below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Musetti vs Medvedev – match predictions

Given the surface and the conditions in Cincinnati, things certainly favor Daniil Medvedev for this match. However, Lorenzo Musetti is a talented player, and he can produce some magical stuff when he hits top gear.

Western & Southern Open 2023

But given that Medvedev beat him in straight sets just last week, I feel that the following markets are the best shout:

Medvedev to win 2-0

These two guys have only played once, and as mentioned above, this match took place just last week. Medvedev beat Musetti by a score of 6-4 6-4 in that match, and it was pretty comfortable for the Russian. So with that in mind, and due to the conditions at the Cincinnati Open, I think it will be a repeat of last week.

Under 21.5 games

As you can see from the result last week, the match had 20 games played in total. That’s about right for a straight-set victory with just a single break in each set. At the same time, depending on who serves first in each set, it could well just be 18 games in total if there is a single break in each set. So again, I feel this market is a likely winner.

This should be an entertaining match, there’s no denying that. But before making any bets, make sure you have a quick look at the previews shared here.

Lorenzo Musetti is a very talented player – everybody knows this. However, he has often struggled to beat the best in the world, which Medvedev certainly is. Then again, he did have a decent win over Dan Evans in the first round, and this was a straight-set victory. But I must point out, Medvedev is on a different level to Evans on hard courts.

Daniil Medvedev preview

At the moment, Daniil Medvedev is the 3rd best player in the world, as reflected in the number 3 seed he has been given for this event. Additionally, he loves this part of the season, as his game is well-suited to the hard courts of North America. And assuming he serves well, it could well be a comfortable win for him today.

Musetti vs Medvedev head to head

As referenced a couple of times above, these guys do have some recent history that I can share with you. They played in the Canadian Open last week, which was a third-round match, and Medvedev was the victor in straight sets. And since the conditions in Toronto and Cincinnati aren’t all that different, the signs point to a 2-0 head-to-head lead for Medvedev once this match is played later today.
