2022 Miami Open odds, men’s semifinal prediction: Proven tennis expert reveals Ruud vs. Cerundolo picks

A spot in the finals of the 2022 Miami Open will be on the line when Casper Ruud and Francisco Cerundolo collide in a men’s semifinal on Friday morning at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. A 23-year-old from Norway who is seeded sixth in Miami, Ruud is coming off a 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 upset over No. 2 seed Alexander Zverev in the quarterfinals on Wednesday. So far in 2022, Ruud is 12-3 with a tournament title in Buenos Aires. Meanwhile, the 23-year-old Cerundolo, who is ranked No. 103 in the world, is in the midst of his deepest run in a hard court tournament. He advanced to Friday’s semifinal when his opponent, Jannik Sinner, was forced to retire.

The semifinal is set to begin at 11 am ET. Ruud is a -600 favorite (risk $ 600 to win $ 100) in the latest Ruud vs. Cerundolo odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Cerundolo is a +420 underdog. Before locking in any Cerundolo vs. Ruud picks or props, you need to see the 2022 Miami Open predictions and betting advice from internationally acclaimed tennis expert Sean Calvert.

Calvert is the handicapper who called Stan Wawrinka winning the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1. In the Miami Open in 2018, he did even better, correctly calling 100-1 long shot John Isner to win the title. And in 2019, Calvert took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1. Anyone following his picks is way up.

Now, Calvert has scrutinized the latest Miami Open 2022 odds and released his coveted best bets for the Ruud vs. Cerundolo semifinal. He’s only sharing his picks and expert tennis analysis at SportsLine.

Casper Ruud Francisco Cerundolo preview

Ruud is in position to make his first final in a Masters 1000 event, and his journey to get here has been a long one. The son of former pro Christian Ruud, who reached No. 39 in the world, Casper started playing at age 4. By age 17, he became the No. 1-ranked junior in the world and turned pro.

Last year was Ruud’s best season yet. He earned a career-high 57 wins and five tournament titles and ended the year ranked No. 8 in the world, a personal best. So far in Miami he has knocked off Cam Norrie (No. 12 in the world), Alexander Bublik (No. 33) and Zverev (No. 4). The victory over Zverev was the first time he had knocked off a player ranked that high.

Meanwhile Cerundolo has made an unlikely run to the semifinal. The native of Argentina has specialized on clay courts during his four-year professional career. The deepest run he’s made at the Tour level came last year in Buenos Aires, when he reached the final, losing to countryman Diego Schwartzman.

Cerundolo has had a strong 2022, winning an ATP Challenger Tour title on clay before reaching the semifinals in Rio de Janeiro. Prior to Miami he held an 0-2 record on hard courts at the Tour level, but so far in South Florida he has knocked off the likes of Gael Monfils (seeded No. 22) and Frances Tiafoe (No. 28). Two other opponents, Reilly Opelka and Jannik Sinner, retired mid-match.
