Tennis DFS is back on FanDuel, with the Miami Open garnering all of the attention in the tennis world for the next week and a half. We expected a slate for Wednesday, but with many matches missing odds, FanDuel decided to give us a more accurately priced player pool. As we have seen with many tournaments so far, there have been plenty of upsets the first two days, so let’s get into some picks for the 32-match slate on Thursday, March 25.

FanDuel Tennis DFS Picks | March 25
Favorite GPP Plays
Belinda Bencic ($20)
Opponent: Zarina Diyas
Sweep Odds: -103
On a slate this size we will need six wins and six big scores to take down any GPP’s. If we look at the players priced around Belinda Bencic on this slate, she immediately stands out due to an easier matchup. She has had a bit of an up-and-down year so far, reaching the Final in Adelaide but also getting bounced in the following tourney in Doha in the first round. Her opponent, Zarina Diyas, plays an extremely different style of tennis, strictly relying on speed and forcing her opponent into mistakes. Bencic may oblige to some of these mistakes with her double-fault issues, but she’ll also hit aces at a 5.9% rate, the highest of her career.
If Bencic can keep the double faults under control, she’ll have zero issue against Diyas here. After struggling with Venus Williams, and often playing close matches with her style, the floor is also very high here for Bencic, making her a nice play in all formats.
Daniel Elahi-Galan ($17)
Opponent: Thiago Seyboth Wild
This is a matchup of two players who definitely prefer clay — Daniel Elahi Galan and Thiago Seyboth Wild both hail from South America, where the red dirt is king. But if you look beyond that, you’ll see Galan carries a big advantage in success on hardcourts with 74 wins to Seyboth Wild’s 12 at all levels and much better scoring rates for tennis DFS. Galan carries an edge in hold percentage, ace percentage and double faults per match. He is priced in the mid-tier, which often gets overlooked on big slates, so there’s leverage and differentiation to be had.
Others: Naomi Osaka ($25), Sofia Kenin ($17), Elena Rybakina ($15), Michael Mmoh ($13), Anna Kalinskaya ($12)
