Taylor Fritz vs Tommy Paul prediction and odds: Delray Beach Open 2024

Ready for the final of the 2024 Delray Beach Open? I certainly am, and I’ve provided several tennis predictions today that cover the upcoming clash between Fritz and Paul. All signs point to a high-quality match tonight, and I’d like to show you the best markets to cover before things begin.

Our favourite Taylor Fritz vs Tommy Paul predictions

The head-to-head between these guys is perfectly poised at two wins each. That said, Fritz is the higher-ranked player at 9 in the world, but Tommy Paul has been in quite sensational form in the last couple of weeks. He is ranked 14 in the world, too, so he’s clearly a top-level player.

With this in mind, I’ve come up with two predictions for the final between these guys, as displayed below:

Tommy Paul to win @ 6/5 (2.20)

Looking back at Tommy Paul’s results over the last couple of weeks, he has been nothing short of exceptional. As you may be aware, Paul won the 250 event in Dallas last week, and he’s reached another final here. Furthermore, besides a minor blip against Michelsen, he has been flawless in this event, so I feel he will beat Fritz tonight.

Tommy Paul +3.5 games handicap @ 1/2 (1.50)

Given that I believe Paul will beat Fritz, it makes sense to cover this market as a bit of a backup. Of course, if Paul wins, this market will automatically pull through too. But even if he doesn’t manage to take out Taylor Fritz, if he runs him close, this market still has a great chance to be a winner. 

Taylor Fritz vs Tommy Paul odds

The latest odds suggest a probability of 61.90% for Fritz to win this match, while the implied chance for Paul is just 45.50%.

2024 Delray Beach Open final – will Paul make it two titles in as many weeks?

One of two outcomes will occur tonight. Fritz will defend his title, or Paul will make it two tournament wins in two weeks. But before it all begins, I’ve given a preview for both guys:

Taylor Fritz preview

Taylor Fritz has performed okay in the tournaments that have formed the ATP schedule 2024 so far. However, he would love to grab a title here, and he needs to in order to defend his points. And since he hasn’t dropped a set in the tournament so far, I’ve no doubt he will fancy his chances here.

Tommy Paul preview

Having won the Dallas Open, dropping just one set in the process, and by reaching the final here, Tommy Paul is set for a rankings boost. He deserves it too, as he has been playing fantastic tennis over the last two weeks. But arguably, this will be his biggest test so far, so he will need to play at his best to win.

Fritz vs Paul head to head

With the head-to-head fixed at 2-2 for these guys, it’s all to play for. That said, Paul won their last meeting in 2023 by a score of 7-6 in the third set, so this could give him an edge.
