Alcaraz vs Fritz Schedule & Info
2023 Miami Open Men's Quarterfinal
Carlos Alcaraz vs. Taylor Fritz
Date: Thursday, March 30, 2023
Start Time: 7:00 p.m. ET
Venue: Hard Rock Stadium — Miami, FL
Alcaraz comes into this one on the heels of a 2-0 win over Tommy Paul on Tuesday, while Fritz made it look just as easy with a 2-0 upset win over Holger Rune in his last match.
Rain postponed this matchup, which was originally scheduled to be played on Wednesday, but that hasn't changed the fact that Alcaraz is considered a sizable favorite as he continues his hunt for a second straight Miami championship.

Set Betting: Fritz: 2-0 (+700) | 2-1 (+700)
The odds paint a pretty clear picture here: Alcaraz is favored to win, and it's not expected to be especially close. The betting markets have Fritz as an underdog to win a single set, let alone to win the entire match.

Alcaraz vs Fritz Prediction & Pick
It is incredibly hard to pick against Carlos Alcaraz right now. The 19-year-old has been nearly perfect in 2023, going 14-1 across all his matches. He's also coming off nine straight 2-0 wins.
Fritz is on a nice run, having knocked off Denis Shapovalov and Holger Rune 2-0 each in his last two matches, but I wouldn't count on a Cinderella run into the semifinals.
Pick against the world No. 1 at your own risk.
Winner: Carlos Alcaraz (2-0)
Alcaraz vs Fritz Best Bet
Getting Alcaraz at -500 odds on the moneyline obviously isn't much fun. Even if it's a value, returning 20 cents on the dollar isn't the way to bet this match.
A loss earlier this month to Tommy Paul (who Alcaraz just cruised past) really helps to highlight the difference in skill level here. Despite the rain delay, I expect Alcaraz to come out on a tear and to do everything he can to make short work of this quarterfinal matchup.
Bet: Set 1 Game Handicap: Carlos Alcaraz (-1.5) -175
