2018 US Open Betting Preview & Tennis Expert Picks

Women’s Singles Championship

The Favorites

  • Serena Williams
  • Angelique Kerber
  • Simona Halep
  • Sloane Stephens
  • Garbine Muguruza
  • Elina Svitolina
  • Caroline Wozniacki
Serena’s at +400. Kerber and Halep are both at +580. Sloane Stephens offers +800 odds while Muguruza, Svitolina, and Wozniacki are all at +1000. To write that the U.S. Open’s Women’s Singles Tournament is wide-open is an understatement. The winner should come from the above list of women, though. Can Williams finally break through with a Grand Slam win this year? Yes, of course, she’s Serena Williams. But, she’s not the pick. Angelique Kerber won Wimbledon. The 6-3, 6-3 win over Serena at the Wimbledon Finals gives her an edge over the Deco-Turf courts at the U.S. Open. Since winning Wimbledon, Kerber’s form has been off. She pushed Madison Keys to 3-sets, Kerber lost the second set via tie-breaker, at the Western & Southern Open. Kerber’s playing well enough to pull off the upset. Pick: Angelique Kerber

Men’s Singles Championship

  • Novak Djokovic
  • Rafael Nadal
  • Roger Federer
  • Alexander Zverez
  • Juan Martin Del Potro
  • Andy Murray
Despite not being the ATP’s No. 1, Djokovic is a clear favorite. He might also be the clear tennis player to back to win the U.S. Open Championship. Djokovic has won two U.S. Open Championships, 2011 and 2015. Djokovic beat his biggest U.S. Open competitor 6-4, 6-4 at the Western & Southern Open. However, the Western & Southern Open doesn’t compare to the U.S. Open. Roger Federer headed into Wimbledon a massive favorite. He’s yet to recover from his early exit, a 5-set loss in the quarterfinals to Kevin Anderson. Federer hasn’t won the U.S. Open since 2008. He’s a low odd throwout. Roger Federer is not among the 2018 US Open Betting favorites. Andy Murray’s form isn’t near good enough to challenge for the win. Alexander Zverez couldn’t escape Round 2 last year. That leaves Rafael Nadal to win the U.S. Open. Nadal took the U.S. Open last year. He hasn’t played since winning the Rogers Cup over Stefanos Tsisipas in early August. Nadal took an entire month off between the French Open, a win, and Wimbledon. He pushed Djokovic to 5-sets. Djokovic beat Nadal 10-8 in the final set. Rafa, the 2017 U.S. Open winner, should make it back-to-back. Pick: Rafael Nadal
