Famous tennis players represented well at U.S. Open
Canadian Bianca Andreescu is hoping to represent her country well at the U.S. Open, which began play in New York this week. Off a strong victory at the Rogers Cup in early August, Andreescu was given initial odds of +1400 to win the U.S. Open, according to OddsShark.com. The Rogers Cup victory was her third tournament win of the season. She won that match when Serena Williams retired because of injury. However, Andreescu only advanced beyond round two in the two previous grand slam tournaments held this year. Andreescu, 19, drew the #15 seed in the tournament.
Betting odds and official sport rankings don’t often go hand-in-hand, and this can be seen with Andreescu at the U.S. Open. Andreescu drew the 15th ranking in the U.S. Open bracket, but she actually has the fifth best odds to win the tournament, according to betting lines.
Williams leads the way as the odds-on favorite at +350. Next in line is Simona Halep, the Romanian who won Wimbledon, followed by Naomi Osaka, the American who won last year’s U.S. Open, at +800 and Ashleigh Barty with +900 odds. Barty is the Austrlian who won this year’s French Open. At +1400, Andreescu is tied with Czechs Karolina Pliskova and Petra Kvitova, as well as American Madison Keys.
The U.S. Open isn’t all about the women from Canada, though. The Canadian men are doing their best to represent their country well, too. The highest-ranked Canadian man in the tournament, according to betting odds, was Milos Raonic, who originally clocked in with +3300 odds. However, a glute injury unfortunately forced Raonic to withdrawal from the tournament at the last minute.
With Raonic withdrawing, that leaves Felix Auger-Aliassime at +5000 odds as the Canadian man with the best chance to win the U.S. Open, according to the betting lines. He is 18th-ranked player in the Men’s Singles bracket of the U.S. Open. Ironically, he will take on fellow Canadian Denis Shapovalov (who has +6600 odds) in the first round on August 27.
The odds-on favorite among the men in the singles division at the U.S. Open is Serbian Novak Djokovic, who already has two grand slam tournament titles this year. He has odds of +110. Second in line is the Frenchman Rafael Nadal, who has odds of +325 and is looking to win the U.S. Open for the fourth time in his career. Switzerland’s Roger Federer ranks fourth according to the odds at +600. The U.S. Open is sure to bring with it extremely exciting action over the next two weeks, and plenty of opportunities for cashing in on successful wagers at some of the online sportsbooks below.
