US Open Betting Offers - Best Tennis Betting Offers
The grass court season is only short but you get the feeling we’re going to be feeling the effects of Wimbledon for a long time. The fallout from the grass is certainly going to be felt in the upcoming US Open.
In the men’s game, Wimbledon saw the return of Novak Djokovic from serious injury problems to win his first Grand Slam for two years. Even more world class players (including Britain’s Andy Murray) are returning from injury ahead of the final Grand Slam of the year.
While some big beasts are returning to try and dominate the men’s game, things are much less predictable in the women’s game. Angelique Kerber finally put a horrible year behind her with her second Grand Slam title but she is just one of maybe 20 women who have a genuine chance of winning as evidenced by the US Open odds.
In our US Open betting guide we look at everything from the best US Open tennis betting odds to spread betting account opening offers.
Who are the Favourites in the Men’s US Open Betting?
Novak Djokovic’s win at Wimbledon immediately saw him installed as the favourite in the US Open tennis betting odds.
The best price you can get on the Serbian superstar is the 3/1 that Betfred are offering. Many will believe that is great price about a man who has already won the US Open twice but he’ll have to beat some of the best tennis players of all time to get his hands on the trophy.
Rafael Nadal represents the obvious danger to Djokovic. The defending champion is going to be the pick in many US Open tennis betting tips and for good reason.
Nadal was playing some wonderful tennis on the baked out courts at Wimbledon and was only knocked out after perhaps the best match of the year. Djokovic got the better of the Spaniard in that epic five-setter but Nadal’s game is better suited to hard court tennis than the grass as is clear by his three US Open titles.
While Nadal may represent the value option in the US Open odds, many tennis fans will be lending their support to the legendary Roger Federer. It was a surprise to many that Federer was unable to win Wimbledon and some believe it marked the start of the decline of the 37-year-old.
You have to go back to 2008 for the last time that Federer won the US Open and you’d have to say that he is too short at a general price of 7/2.
Men’s US Open Long Shots
Andy Murray’s return to competitive tennis has been welcomed by tennis fans around the world. It was a shame that he felt he was unable to compete at Wimbledon but that difficult decision looks to have paid off as he’s started picking up big wins in his build up to the US Open.
It’s strange to see Murray as one of the outsiders in the US Open betting but the 12/1 that Betfred are quoting won’t last long if he maintains his promising form before he gets to Flushing Meadows.
Murray has won many friends for the amount of support he lends to younger players but few people in tennis have as many positive things to say about Sir Andy than Nick Kyrgios.
The Australian has had his problems both in terms of injuries and his behaviour on the court but there is no doubt that he has the quality to win a Grand Slam.
Kyrgios loves the atmosphere at Flushing Meadows so is a tempting each-way option amongst the US Open odds at 20/1 with Bet-at-Home who are one of the best bookies around when it comes to tennis betting.
Women’s US Open Betting Options
“Who to bet on US Open fans?” That’s a question tennis fans will be asked a lot by their friends on the lookout for betting value ahead of the tournament.
Those of you who closely follow tennis know that that is a very difficult question to answer when it comes to the women’s tournament. Serena Williams is the clear favourite at a best price of 15/4 with 10Bet but the American is still getting back to her best after returning from maternity leave.
Angelique Kerber kept Williams moving during the Wimbledon final and she’ll struggle to win the US Open if other employ those tactics. Moreover, the women’s draw is incredibly open so in our US Open tennis betting tips we think it’s well worth backing players at bigger odds.
Simona Halep immediately stands out in the US Open tennis betting odds. The Romanian remains at the very top of the world rankings and finally got the Grand Slam monkey off her back by winning at Roland Garros earlier in the summer.
She’s never gone beyond the semi-finals in New York but this could be the year that Halep wins the US Open at 9/1 with William Hill.
As well as having that William Hill open bet on Halep, we also think it’s worth backing Coco Vandeweghe at 26/1 with Bet-at-Home. The 26-year-old New Yorker made the most of the support she got from the American fans to make the semi-finals last year and after yet more improvement she can go all the way and claim her first Grand Slam title.
US Open Live Streaming and Other Betting Options
Profiting from the upcoming fortnight of world class tennis isn’t only as simple as working out who to bet on in the US Open. There are many different ways of making some money from the bookies beyond the outright betting market.
The number of in-play US Open tennis betting odds available with the best bookies provide an opportunity you cannot afford to miss out on. To maximise your in-play betting, make sure to have access to a live stream of the US Open.
Bet365 are one of the few bookies who have offered live streaming of the US Open over the years so you’ll have to find a TV channel with the tennis on as Amazon have snapped up the live streaming rights to the tournament.
The final thing to consider is spread betting which gives you the chance to win bigger than fixed odds betting. Sporting Index are the best in the business and they have some excellent spread betting account opening offers for new customers.
