Novak Djokovic can move one step closer to a record-tying 22nd career grand slam title when he squares off against surprise American Tommy Paul in a semifinal match on Friday at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. The 35-year-old Djokovic has 21 major titles, one shy of the record held by Rafael Nadal. Djokovic also owns a record nine Australian Open titles. To win grand slam title No. 22 and Australian Open title No. 10, he must first get by Paul, a 25-year-old from Voorhees, N.J. 

The match is set to begin at 3:30 a.m. ET. Djokovic is a -2500 favorite (risk $2,500 to win $100) in the latest Djokovic vs. Paul odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Paul is a +1000 underdog. The over/under for total games is 29.5. 

Before you make any Australian Open men's semifinals picks or Paul vs. Djokovic predictions, you must see the Australian Open 2023 picks from tennis handicapper Jose Onorato.

Onorato grew up playing competitive tennis in Caracas, Venezuela. After coming to the U.S., he trained with famed coach Nick Bollettieri at IMG Academy in Florida and faced players like Robert Farah, now one of the world's top-ranked doubles players.

Onorato, who holds dual degrees in finance and economics from the University of Miami, does extensive research before placing any tennis bets. He studies current form, players' tendencies on a particular surface, weather conditions and many other relevant factors. That systematic approach helped Onorato go 96-67-7 -- up 60.42 units -- in 2022!

Onorato knows that all eyes were on Djokovic entering the tournament. The nine-time champ did not play in Melbourne last year. He was famously deported from Australia before the event after the Australian government canceled his visa for being unvaccinated against COVID-19. He entered this year's tournament as the No. 4 seed despite having won 40 of his last 43 singles matches.

On Thursday he will face Paul for the first time. Ranked No. 35 in the world, Paul had never gone beyond the fourth round in 13 previous grand slam tournaments. His only career ATP title came in Stockholm in 2021.

Now, Onorato has scrutinized the Djokovic vs. Paul matchup in the men's semifinals of the 2023 Australian Open and released his pick. You ABSOLUTELY need to see what it is before locking in any 2023 Australian Open picks of your own!
