Novak Djokovic And “The Rest”
Novak Djokovic will enter the 2021 U.S. Open as the main betting favorite, priced at -160. His betting odds haven’t changed much in the week leading into the tournament and have, in fact, dropped since the market first opened.
That isn’t too shocking since it’s hard to justify betting against Djokovic to win his 21st Grand Slam. Based on what he has shown over the season, there really isn’t any tennis player who can consistently beat him and threaten to claim the title for himself. Having said that, Djokovic has lost before, and with some luck, there is a good chance we might see one of the underdogs step up and win the 2021 U.S. Open for himself.
The first underdog in line to take over if Djokovic falls is Daniil Medvedev, priced at +350. Just last week, the Russian tennis star was priced at +400 and has seemingly caught the attention of bettors.
While Medvedev wasn’t as successful as Djokovic on the season, he has done well before, reaching finals in Australia, quarter-finals in France, and has made it to the fourth round in Wimbledon. Most recently, Medvedev also made it to the semi-finals in Cincinnati, has won the Canadian Open, as well as Mallorca Open.
Alexander Zverev is priced as the third-favorite to win the 2021 U.S. Open at +500. Like Medvedev, Zverev’s odds have dropped since last week, when he was at +550 on the outright betting markets.
Obviously, seeing Zverev win the 2021 U.S. Open would be a shock; however, it’s not like he hasn’t done well this season. He succeeded in Cincinnati just over a week ago and has reached the semi-finals in France.
What’s more, Zverev has reached the quarter-finals in Australia and was the finalist here in 2020. Obviously, he has the tools to be competitive; now, it will all come down to execution.
Ashleigh Barty or Naomi Osaka?
If the WTA betting odds are to be trusted, the battle for the 2021 U.S. Open title will come down to Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka. Just a few weeks back, Osaka was billed as the main betting favorite at +300, but her odds have since drifted to +400.
On the other side, Ashleigh Barty was priced as the second-favorite but will now enter the fourth and final Grand Slam as the player to beat at +300. The offered betting odds on the main two favorites haven’t changed much over the last week, nor were there any major shakeups in the middle of the field.
Aryna Sabalenka remains priced at +900 as the third favorite. We would likely see Sabalenka’s odds a bit shorter had she done better in Cincinnati a couple of weeks back; however, she failed to deliver and ended her journey in the Round of 32.
However, she has made it to the semi-finals in Canada and in Wimbledon, indicating that she has what it takes to compete for the title. Will she be able to overcome hard-court specialists in Osaka and Barty, however, remains to be seen.
