ATP Indian Wells Odds
The Indian Wells Masters, otherwise known as the Indian Wells Open or BNP Paribas Open, is widely considered the fifth major in pro tennis.
A Masters 1000 men’s event and WTA 1000 women’s event that takes place at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, California, it’s one of just two tour events outside the Grand Slams played over more than eight days. The biggest matches are played at the second-largest tennis stadium in the world and the event draws the largest attendance numbers outside of the four Grand Slams.
Should California voters approve legal and regulated sports betting in the November 2022 election, there’s little doubt Indian Wells will be the most bet on tennis event in the state. Here’s how you can bet on it, alongside the latest Indian Wells odds and more about California’s biggest tennis tournament.

How to bet on the Indian Wells Masters
Once California sportsbooks go live, you should find you can bet on who you think will win the Indian Wells title all year round through futures markets. Once the tournament begins, these markets morph into an Indian Wells Outrights market where you can do the same. You’ll also be able to bet on tennis players advancing to a specific round or going deeper than another competitor or group of competitors.
The odds in these markets change based on a player’s realistic chances of winning and losing players are pulled off the board. The fact you lock in the currently posted odds at the time you place a bet often means the earlier you bet the better the odds are.
Of course, there’s also individual match-by-match betting for Indian Wells. Match-by-match betting includes the following basic bets:
- Moneyline: Pick match winners and lock in bets at the currently posted odds. Lay money on the favorite or take a chance on underdogs that allow you to double your money or more.
- Set/Game Spread: Pick match winners with a spread of sets or games set by sportsbooks factored into the score. Even out the odds between the favorite and underdog.
- Over/Under: Bet on the total number of games played in a match and whether it will land over or under the sportsbook’s line.
- Live Match Betting: Bet on live tennis matches at odds that change with the action on the court. Bet on each game, set, and even each point in the live markets.

Serena Williams odds at Indian Wells
With 23 Grand Slam titles Serena Williams is widely considered the greatest tennis player in history. However, Williams has an interesting history with Indian Wells.
She won at Indian Wells in 1999 and again in 2001. However, that second win came with some controversy. Venus Williams pulled out of the semifinal matchup with her sister due to injury and the fans thought the fix was in. They blamed the girls and their father Richard Williams, ripping Venus and Richard when they took a seat in the crowd at the final and Serena throughout the match. The sisters then boycotted the event for the next 14 years because they felt the false allegations of a fix had an undercurrent of racism.
Serena returned in 2015 as the No. 1 seed and made the final without losing a set before being upset by No. 13 seed Victoria Azarenka. Venus returned in 2016, and again, Serena lost in the final to Azarenka. Serena withdrew due to injury in 2017 and the Williams sisters actually met at Indian Wells in 2018 with Venus winning that match before losing in the semifinals.
Serena Williams retired from a third-round match in 2019 and Venus lost in the quarterfinals. The event was canceled in 2020 and the Williams sisters did not play in 2021 or 2022.
