Tommy Paul vs Frances Tiafoe prediction and odds: Delray Beach Open 2024

Our tennis predictions today focus on events from all over the world. But for this specific game, the focus is on the all-American showdown in Delray Beach between Tommy Paul and Frances Tiafoe. Who will the winner be and what markets should you cover? Let me show you now.

Our favourite Tommy Paul vs Frances Tiafoe predictions

The 2024 Delray Beach Open has been a great tournament for the American players, as one would expect. In fact, an American winner is guaranteed since all four semi-final spots are filled by American players. 

That said, this semi-final match involving Paul vs Tiafoe is a tricky one to call, but I believe I’ve found the best value markets as shown below:

Paul to win @ 11/20 (1.55)

Given that Tommy Paul won the tournament in Dallas last week, he is down as the favourite to win this match. I tend to agree with the odds too, especially since he produced wins against the likes of Shelton and Giron en route to the title. For me, this shows he is in better form than Tiafoe, which justifies the selection.

Three total sets @ 13/10 (2.30)

It’s always tough to call matches involving Frances Tiafoe. He is an unpredictable player, and if he brings his A-game, he can beat just about everyone on the ATP Tour. And if Tommy Paul has a slow start like he did against Michelsen in the second round, Tiafoe could snag the first set. 

In this case, however, I still think Paul would come back to even the score, hence the selection.

Tommy Paul vs Frances Tiafoe odds

Paul has a 64.50% chance of winning this match, whereas Tiafoe has a current probability of 43.50% to beat Paul tonight.

Which American will make it into the finals of the 2024 Delray Beach Open?

There’s always a buzz about Frances Tiafoe’s next match. After all, he’s a great entertainer. But is this enough to allow him to challenge Paul? Let’s take a closer look now.

Tommy Paul preview

Tommy Paul has enjoyed a solid 2024 season so far. He made the third round in Melbourne, which may have felt like a letdown after his 2023 performance. However, he has since claimed a title at the Dallas Open, and he’s into another semi-final in Delray Beach. He’s now ranked 14 in the world due to these results too.

Frances Tiafoe preview

By his standards, Tiafoe has experienced a subpar 2024 season. He went out in the second round of the Australian Open, and he lost his second match in Dallas to Marcos Giron. As a result, Tiafoe is now ranked one spot lower than Tommy Paul at 15 in the world. 

Paul vs Tiafoe head to head

Tommy Paul has the edge in the head to head department against his fellow countryman by a score of 2-1. Tiafoe won their first official ATP match in 2020, but Paul has beaten him in 2021 and 2022 – all played on hard courts.
