Sloane Stephens (13) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (6)

Sloane Stephens produced a sensational fightback to defeat Victoria Azarenka in the semifinals. Despite slow start, the 2017 US Open champion won 12 of the last 13 games of the match to reach the Miami Open final. Known as one of the most talented players in the game, the slow Hard Courts in Miami are perfect for Sloane’s game style. Adding to this, the American won 89.47% of the matches played in the U.S. since August 2017.

Jelena Ostapenko continues to impress in Miami. At the age of 20, Ostapenko became the youngest finalist in Crandon Park since Azarenka, who won the title in 2009 when she was aged 19. Looking now at Jelena’s campaign on this event, the 2017 French Open champion reaches this stage of the competition after a 7 – 6 6 – 3 win over Danielle Collins. On the other hand, the No.6 seed didn’t drop a single set so far on this event.

This should be a very interesting contest between two Grand Slam champions. The sportsbooks expect a close encounter with Stephens as the slight favourite at -145 at 5Dimes while Pinnacle offers +135 for Ostapenko’s victory. Even though we agree with Sloane’s favoritism, it won’t be easy for the home favorite to overcome such a dangerous player as Ostapenko. Nevertheless, it’s hard to go against Stephens at the moment due to her incredible record in recent months when playing in her home country. With this in mind, our suggestion is for you to add the Over to your betting picks as the most valuable play for this Saturday’s final in Miami.

Free Tennis Pick: Over 21.5 (+100)
