US Open 2019 Betting Tips & Predictions
When it comes to men’s tennis it’s difficult to look past the top three, particularly given that Djokovic has claimed two of the three, with Rafa of course winning the French Open.
The Serbian is the defending champion and we’d back him again, given the epic encounter he came out of against Roger Federer at Wimbledon. It proved to be a real classic on the grass, and many fans will be desperate to see a repeat performance come the beginning of September.
Federer will be looking to claim his first Slam since last year’s Australian Open and could prove good value at +550. He’s plenty of experience having won the five times previously, although his last was over a decade ago. Fourth seed Dominic Thiem is a bolder bet at +2800, having reached the French Open Final this year.
Serena Williams will be continuing her return to form in New York and after reaching the final at Wimbledon, we’d back her to go one further this time around.
At +400 it’s not a bad bet to place, while Wimbledon Champion Halep will also be backed by plenty.
Ashleigh Barty perhaps provides the best value, so we’d certainly be inclined to take a Free Bet on her after winning the French Open, while reigning champion Naomi Osaka has proved a sensible wager over the last 12 months.
