US Open Betting Tips: How To Pick A Winner
Of course, one of the key things when placing US Open bets is getting your predictions right.
It’s not an easy task but there are plenty of things that can aid your betting. You should consider a number of things before you place your bets, including…
- The Hard Court: Different players perform better on different types of court. The US Open is played on a hard court so players who specialise in hard court tennis will be more effective than those who struggle on the surface.
- Form: Form is of course one of the more important factors to monitor when placing bets on any Grand Slam tennis tournament. The form players are much more likely to do well and go far in the tournament in comparison to those who have struggled in recent tournaments.
- Ranking: Similar to form, those players who are ranked higher are naturally more likely to do well as they offer more quality than those who don’t rank as well. What you should also check is how a ranking has risen or dropped in recent times as it can help identify form and the trajectory of their careers.
- Head-to-Head: Tennis stars will often come up against each other, so exploring their head-to-head, particularly more recent meetings, will also provide useful information on how match will go including who will win, how many sets it will go and the type of game it will be. As well as statistics you should also analyse each player’s style and see where one could be stronger or weaker than another.
US Open Prediction: Who Will Conquer In New York?
The US Open 2019 is just around the corner and following success at Wimbledon, Novak Djokovic is a clear favourite to claim his third Grand Slam of the year.
William Hill have him priced at 6/5 to retain the championship and its difficult to look too far past him.
Rafa Nadal is second favourite and is perhaps the best candidate to oust him after winning the 2017 tournament. You can back him at 4/1, with Wimbledon finalist Roger Federer an 11/2 shot.
An outside shot would probably be last year’s finalist Juan Martin del Potro at 25/1, but it’s difficult to look further than the Serbian Number 1 extending his dominance.
In the women’s singles, the betting market is seeing Serena Williams as the favourite. She continues her comeback after giving birth and is a 4/1 favourite.
Having not won the tournament since 2014 she’ll be desperate to, although will face tough opposition in Naomi Osaka at 9/1 and Ashleigh Barty (10/1).
Simona Halep looked dangerous throughout Wimbledon and beat Serena in the final so would be a good bet at 15/2, second favourite and we’d perhaps put our money on the Romanian who is having a fine year.
