US Open men’s odds

Daniil Medvedev (+225): The defending champion is the betting favorite with Novak Djokovic not making the trip to New York due to his vaccination status. Medvedev had to sit out Wimbledon due to regulations placed against Russian players, but he has rounded back into form on hardcourt in Los Cabos after taking time off.

Carlos Alcaraz (+350): The 19-year-old is all the way up to No. 4 in the world and figures to be a real factor at the U.S. Open after making the quarterfinal last year in his debut. The Spaniard has had an insanely fast ascent to the top, and he’s just as good on hardcourt despite being known as a clay specialist. His form leading in will be interesting since he’s played some of the best tennis since Wimbledon with back-to-back finals.

Rafael Nadal (+550): Nadal has lost just once on hardcourt this year compared to 21 victories … an impressive feat considering it’s given him some issues at times in recent years. His victory at the Australian Open showed that the Spaniard can still get it done in a Grand Slam on hardcourt against emerging young talent, and the absence of Djokovic definitely makes a 23rd major possible.

Stefanos Tsitsipas (+1200): The U.S. Open has been the worst major for the 23-year-old as he’s yet to make it past the third round in four tries. We haven’t seen him play since a disappointing third-round loss to Nick Kyrgios at Wimbledon following his strong championship in Mallorca. These odds seem a little low when considering a lack of excellent form on hardcourt.

Jannik Sinner (+1400): At just 20 years old, Sinner is looking to improve upon his fourth-round exit last year at the U.S. Open. He’s made two quarterfinals already in 2022 Grand Slams, and his impressive title match over Alcaraz in Umag along with a five-set loss to Djokovic at Wimbledon certainly has the Italian on great trajectory. Keep an eye on some hardcourt form leading into New York, but this could be the best value yet.

Alexander Zverev (+1400): This is certainly not a number you should be interested in currently since Zverev is still recovering from an ankle surgery after tearing ligaments in his semifinal match against Nadal at the French Open. He recently withdrew from the Montreal Masters but does hope to be ready in time for New York. You could expect a much better number if that’s his first action.

Matteo Berrettini (+1800): It was here in 2019 that Berrettini had his breakout performance at a Grand Slam with a surprise semifinal run. The Italian tested positive for COVID-19 and had to withdraw from Wimbledon after winning in both Stuttgart and London to make himself one of the favorites on his best surface. He can be streaky on hardcourt, but there’s no question he possesses the talent needed to win a Slam if he finds some form going in.

Felix Auger-Aliassime (+2000): The 21-year-old Canadian has seemed to figure it out a bit on hardcourts for Grand Slams as he made the quarterfinal at the Australian Open after his semifinal run here in New York last year. The consistency has been severely lacking as of late with some bad hardcourt losses in March followed by a poor grass season as well. He’ll look to find something in Los Cabos to start his hardcourt season.

Taylor Fritz (+2500): Though his clay season was poor – like many Americans struggle with – Fritz has really established himself as a premiere player this year on hardcourt. He also looked great on grass by winning the title in Eastbourne and making the quarterfinals at Wimbledon before losing to Nadal in five sets. That was his first quarter in a Grand Slam, and it’d be surprising to not see him achieve at least that in New York this year.

Andrey Rublev (+2500): The 24-year-old Russian also had to obviously miss Wimbledon this year, but he’s been a threat in Grand Slams ever since his quarterfinal at the U.S. Open in 2017. He’s added four more of those in majors since, but he’s failed to improve upon it. He’s been impressive on hardcourts and should be considered a real threat if he finds some form in Washington D.C.

Dominic Thiem (+2800): The 2020 winner here has unfortunately still been unable to recapture his old form after missing nearly a year due to injury. He showed some life on clay following Wimbledon, but he’s still lacking the upside you’d expect from him … and he’s also yet to play a match on hardcourt since coming back. You can expect a much better price on him the week of the U.S. Open unless something drastically changes.

Nick Kyrgios (+3500): It’s definitely disappointing that Kyrgios has never made it past the third round at the U.S. Open in eight tries since 2013. Much of that can be contributed to his usual lack of effort, but that seems to be turning around a bit as of late. He made a wonderful run to the championship at Wimbledon before losing to Djokovic. It’s not crazy to think this could lead to more success at Grand Slams in the future.

Denis Shapovalov (+3500): Shapovalov had a nice hardcourt season to start the year, but that form has completely disappeared since with poor clay and grass seasons. To make matters worse, the young Canadian lost in the first round in Washington D.C. to 99th ranked J.J. Wolf. He could still get it going again before New York, but this price doesn’t match currently.

Miomir Kecmanovic (+3500): The 22-year-old Serbian has gradually gotten better in Grand Slams over the last few years and will be looking to make it past the second round in New York for the first time. His hard court season to start the year was quite impressive and shot him up the world rankings. But he’s been a bit underwhelming since, and it’s hard to see that he deserves this price currently.

Jenson Brooksby (+4000): Brooksby’s fourth-round run at the U.S. Open last year was fairly impressive, but I’m struggling with him as well to see a path where he could actually win in New York this year. The upside still isn’t there, and while some of his quirkiness has enabled him to make deep runs in places like Atlanta and Dallas, the best players tend to figure him out quickly.

Hubert Hurkacz (+4000): We’ve seen some very steady stuff from Hurkacz this year as he continues to lurk among the top 10 players in the world. He’s yet to advance past the second round in either hardcourt Grand Slam, but some great wins on the surface earlier in the year proved that he should be able to get it done. This is some of the better value in this range in my opinion if he grabs some decent wins going in.

Casper Ruud (+4000): The clay specialist will be on a mission again to prove he can also get it done on hardcourts. A third-round exit here in 2020 is his best result, but Ruud beat some solid names in Miami earlier this year on his way to a championship loss to Alcaraz. Even though it was on clay, Ruud looked dominant in a title run at Gstaad last time out, so I do believe this is a really great bet to rely on the upside of Ruud’s current game.

Cameron Norrie (+4000): Norrie is fantastic on hardcourts and made a beautiful semifinal run at Wimbledon in front a delighted crowd. It’s clear the 26-year-old is playing some of his best tennis currently, and I’d be surprised to see him not improve on his career-best third-round exit at the U.S. Open. He’s currently defending his title at Los Cabos and figures to go down in odds if he plays well again.

Roger Federer (+5000): Unfortunately, it’s not expected for the all-time great to return for the U.S. Open this year. He is expected back shortly after, but you can scratch this bet off your list of potential bets since he’ll still be rehabbing when the tennis world is in New York.

Marin Cilic (+5000): The winner of the U.S. Open way back in 2014, Cilic had mostly been out of contention at Grand Slams recently until pushing all the way to the semifinals at the French Open this year … his best ever result in Paris. He also showed some life early in the year on hardcourt, making him an interesting play if he gets a decent draw.

Sebastian Korda (+6500): Korda seemed to really be trending at times in the last year, but he’s failed to get a whole lot going as of late. He hasn’t been overly impressive on hardcourts, and he’s yet to win a match at the U.S. Open. As of this writing, he’s quickly pushed into the third round in Washington D.C., but making any run at a championship this year in New York seems a bit far-fetched.

US Open women’s odds

Iga Swiatek (+300): The World No. 1 and clay specialist has only gone further than the quarterfinals once at a hardcourt Grand Slam, which was this year at the Australian Open. After dominating on hardcourt following Australia, her preparation for the U.S. Open has been far less impressive, making Swiatek a tough sell at +300.

Simona Halep (+700): Halep seemed like a fair favorite for the U.S. Open before an injury forced a retirement in Cincinnati. It seems like a minor injury, though, making the Romanian the most in-form favorite from what we saw in Toronto and Wimbledon.

Aryna Sabalenka (+1600): Sabalenka was rounding into one of the best players on the planet this time last year when she made the semis at the U.S. Open. Some serving issues have plagued her since, but she seems to be turning things around at the right time. Looked good in Cincinnati before losing to the eventual champion.

Naomi Osaka (+1600): Osaka is unfortunately in some of the worst form we’ve ever seen from her since she emerged as a top player. She has lost 5 of her last 6 matches and can’t be recommended at all at a price that puts her with the favorites.

Emma Raducanu (+1600): Last year’s unbelievable surprise winner has mostly struggled in 2022, but there have started to be some signs as of late that she’s figuring it out again for her title defense. Raducanu dominated Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka in Cincy before bowing out respectfully to a Top 10 player in Jessica Pegula.

Ons Jabeur (+1700): The Wimbledon finalist has also been battling some injuries as of late and had a very disappointing leadup to the U.S. Open by winning just two matches in three hardcourt tournaments. Her win over Madison Keys in San Jose showed her potential if she’s feeling right, though.

Maria Sakkari (+1700): Sakkari made the semis in last year’s U.S. Open, but she’s also suffering a lack of form at the wrong time after winning just one match in three hardcourt tournaments leading in. It’s not overly concerning since each loss came against in-form opponents, but we’d like to see a bit more for this price.

Amanda Anisimova (+2000): Anisimova continues to be intriguing as a top player, but she’s yet to really put it all together in 2022. Her quarters run at Wimbledon was impressive, but the hardcourt run-up was mediocre, including an injury in Cincinnati to provide some more worries.

Bianca Andreescu (+2000): The 22-year-old Canadian stunningly won the U.S. Open in 2019 but hasn’t gone further than the fourth round in a Grand Slam since. 2022 has been a bit better for Andreescu, but I still don’t think this is the best price available for someone who has lacked upside lately.

Caroline Garcia (+2200): It feels like Garcia has been around forever at 28 years old, but the former World No. 4 might be in her best form ever currently. Even though the price is already cut in half, I think this might just be the best value on the board still. Garcia is clicking on all cylinders in a field that has tons of question marks.

Belinda Bencic (+2500): The next most value could just be right here, as the 25-year-old Swiss has had a very nice year and has the history at the U.S. Open to back it. This has been her only successful major, and some solid play in Toronto showed she can make a run in New York.

Paula Badosa (+2500): Badosa almost appeared to turn a corner in San Jose with a strong win over Coco Gauff, but she’s really lost it since with a retirement in Toronto and then a very concerning loss in her first match in Cincinnati. We’ll see if she can turn it on during her preparation, but this isn’t a number I’d touch.

Jelena Ostapenko (+2500): The 2017 French Open winner has never advanced past the third round at a hardcourt Grand Slam. This is certainly her worst surface, and she showed nothing leading up in Toronto or Cincy to think this is the week she makes a run on hardcourt.

Jessica Pegula (+2500): Pegula is my next most intriguing option at 25/1 due to some strong results at the Australian Open in back-to-back years and a very nice leadup to New York with solid runs in Toronto and Cincy. She lost to the eventual champion in both tournaments and appears to be in some of the best form on Tour currently.

Karolina Pliskova (+2500): The 6-foot-2 Pliskova is always a threat on hardcourt when she’s striking the ball well. Her record in New York is exceptional with a final and three quarterfinals in the last six years. She’s had a rough year, but a run to the semis in Toronto was enough to offer some intrigue for the U.S. Open.

Madison Keys (+3000): It feels like forever ago since Keys made a finals run at the 2017 U.S. Open … and she added a semifinal the next year in New York. It took until this year’s Australian Open for Keys to make it back to that stage, but it seems she may be making her way back to a top WTA player. Her semi run in Cincy has me very interested in this number.

Beatriz Haddad Maia (+3000): Maia has no real history of success at Grand Slams, but there’s no doubt she’s as in-form as anyone leading into this U.S. Open. She won two consecutive tournaments on grass leading into Wimbledon, and then she made an incredibly impressive run to the final in Toronto before losing to Halep.

Leylah Fernandez (+3000): Last year’s stunning finalist at the U.S. Open failed to get anything going in Toronto or Cincinnati to make us believe she could do it again in New York this year. But that was also the case last year, and we have seen Fernandez show some of that upside again in 2022. I still think there are too many better options in this area.

Pertra Kvitova (+3500): Kvitova offers some intrigue as well due to being a two-time Grand Slam winner at Wimbledon and adding plenty of strong runs at hardcourt Grand Slams in the past. Her form had dropped the last couple of years, but she looked great in grass season and then made it to the final in Cincinnati before losing to Garcia.

Serena Williams (+3500): The 6-time winner at the U.S. Open is carrying this price due to her name, but unfortunately Serena looks nowhere close to ready to make a real run at her final tournament before retirement. Hopefully the G.O.A.T. can give us a few thrills on the way, but I can’t recommend this price.

Victoria Azarenka (+3500): The two-time Australian Open winner doesn’t have much going currently. She did have a nice run at the Australian Open this year before also going to the finals at Indian Wells, but I’m not sure we’re seeing a high enough level from her to make a surprise final run like she did in New York in 2020.

Daria Kasatkina (+3500): Kasatkina is always interesting on clay because of her skillset, but hardcourt will always be a tougher ask due to her limited power. She did impress by winning the title in San Jose with some very strong wins, but first-round losses in Toronto and Cincy dampened the excitement a bit.

Anett Kontaveit (+3500): Kontaveit is the World No. 2 and should be at least a little intriguing at this price because of her upside, but hardcourts continue to puzzle her a bit as she’s taken some tough losses in recent weeks. I can’t see her winning in New York, but you could take worse longshot throws on this board.

Danielle Collins (+4000): Collins continues to miss time due to a neck injury and won’t compete any before the U.S. Open. Her run to the finals in Melbourne and a few strong victories in Miami would have made her a strong candidate for this U.S. Open, but it’s never easy to jump back into play at a Grand Slam with little preparation.

Garbine Muguruza (+5000): Even when Muguruza was a top player in the world and winning Grand Slams, she never had any success at the U.S. Open. Her fourth-round run last year matched her best ever in New York, and she’s completely lacking the form to think she’ll make a better run in 2022.

What are tennis futures bets?

Tennis futures bets are odds available to bet on for tennis tournaments that haven’t started yet and throughout the tournament. Most sportsbooks have futures odds for all four majors for the majority of the year, as well as normal tournaments the few days leading up to them. For example, you could currently bet $10 on Simona Halep to win the US Open and would win 70 dollars if she came out on top with her +700 odds at DraftKings. Placing a bet on multiple players you think could win can still be profitable depending on stakes due to higher odds than traditional betting.

Other ways to bet on the US Open

Moneyline: Betting on the moneyline during the US Open means you would be betting on a player straight up in his or her 1v1 match. Moneylines take spreads and overall money coming in on each player to provide a fair straight up bet in a matchup. Placing $10 on Novak Djokovic to win his first-round matchup would bring in considerably less money overall than betting on his spread with the same amount.

Game spread: Betting on the game spread means betting on a player to cover his or her spread in the match with total number of games won. For example, say Stan Wawrinka (+4.5) played Roger Federer. Wawrinka could lose the match (6-7, 6-7, 4-6) in straight sets but still win the bet because he only lost by four total games.

Set Spread: Betting on set spreads is the same concept as game spreads but a little simpler to track. Spreads will be set at 1.5 — or 2.5 in bigger mismatches. If Djokovic was at (-1.5) in his matchup against Nick Kyrgios, for example, he would need to win the match in no more than four total sets to fulfill the bet.

Over/under (total games): Betting on over/under means placing a wager on the length of the game itself instead of who wins. The over/under line can vary widely based on who is playing and how evenly matched the game is expected to be. For example, an evenly matched championship expected to go five sets would have a much higher over/under total. A first-round match that is more than likely expected to be a 3-0 sweep could have an over/under of games played in the low 20s.

Props: Betting on props could be a wide range of things in tennis depending on what the sportsbook believes could be interesting. A typical prop bet in tennis revolves around serving. The sportsbook could place an over/under on the number of aces by John Isner in his first-round match or the number of double faults from Kyrgios in his match. Prop betting can be a small, but fun way to bet and follow along with the tournament.

Live betting: Just like any other sport, sportsbooks will have live betting available during US Open tennis matches. Based on the events in the match, the players’ live moneylines and set spreads will change and allow you to make bets while watching or following along.
