With that said, let’s get started.

Analyzing the ATP US Open Betting Odds and Winning Predictions

 There will be five former men’s U.S. Open singles champions in this year’s field, including Roger Federer (2004-08), Rafael Nadal (2010, 2013), Andy Murray (2012), Marin Cilic (2014) and Juan Martin Del Potro (2009).Two-time men’s champion Novak Djokovic and 2016 winner Stan Wawrinka have both withdrawn from this year’s U.S. Open with Djokovic suffering from an elbow injury and Wawrinka shutting it down because of a season-ending knee injury. That leaves the incomparable Roger Federer as the prohibitive favorite and new World No.1 Rafael Nadal as the second pick in oddsmakers eyes to win the 2017 U.S. Open.The 2017 US Open will be played Monday, Aug. 28, through Sunday, Sept. 10, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y. The US Open Men’s Singles Championship is presented by Mercedes-Benz.

Six Great Ways and Winning Tips for 2017 Tennis Betting

The ATP US Open Favorites

Roger Federer -110

Federer started off his year by winning the Australian Open before winning Masters 1000 events at Indian Wells and Miami, not to forget his record eighth Wimbledon title in July. While the all-time leader in men’s Grand Slam singles titles enters as the prohibitive favorite, he’ll need to remain fully healthy throughout the two-week tournament if he wants to hold off his younger counterparts on the fast hard courts in New York. Federer, who last won the U.S. Open in 2008, could win his his sixth US Open title, which would surpass Pete Sampras and Jimmy Connors for the most US Open men’s singles championships in the Open era.“After vacation and practice, it’s always a bit of a shock for the body,” Federer said after his loss to Zverev. “I felt all right all week. Had a bit of muscle pain, aches and pains here and there, just because it’s back on the match courts, on the hard courts.”

Rafael Nadal +180

The fifteen-time Grand Slam winner captured his 10th French Open singles title in May by defeating Stan Wawrinka in the final after reaching the finals of the Australian Open in January. Nadal won the 2010 and 2013 US Open singles titles by defeating Djokovic in both finals.

Marin Cilic +1100

Cilic just reached the final at Wimbledon before falling to Federer, but he also won the final major of the year back in 2009 – be beating Federer. He’s got a big serve and big forehand and moves well, so he’ll have a legitimate chance – if he doesn’t end up crying!

Alexander Zverev +1300

I love the young 20-year-old German and I believe he’s going to win multiple majors before he’s done – and it could start with this tournament. Zverev beat Federer two weeks ago at the Rogers Cup in Toronto and just looks like he’s poised to make his slam breakthrough sooner, rather than later.

The ATP US Open Contenders

Milos Raonic +1300Dominic Thiem +1600Juan Martin Del Potro +1600Nick Krygios +2300Grigor Dimitrov +2700Analysis: World No. 10 Milos Raonic was a finalist at last year’s Wimbledon and has been touted as one of the game’s brightest young stars, but that was before he started repeatedly choking at the biggest tournaments there is. Now, I’m not very sure if the big-serving Canadian will ever win a major, seeing as how he’s not the best mover on the planet!World No. 7 Dominic Thiem has plenty of talent and is fearless against even the best players on the planet for this coming ATP US Open.World No. 7 Dominic Thiem has plenty of talent and is fearless against even the best players on the planet, although I’m thinking his one-handed backhand could be a vulnerability at this tournament for players who know how to get the ball up high on that side of his body. Juan Martin Del Potro should have at least five majors by now and I believe he would have if injuries hadn’t derailed him the last three to five years. Mostly to his balky racket-hand wrist. By now, everyone knows that young Australian Nick Krygios has the talent to beat everyone on the planet on any given day. Unfortunately, he also hasn’t been able to master the mental aspects of the game and may never do so.I believe the best value in this group is being offered by the man once known as ‘baby Federer, Grigor Dimitrov. The clearly hungry Hungarian, who moved up two spots to No. 9 in the singles ranking, is 34-13 on the year with three titles, including his Masters 1000 win in Cincinnati this past weekend.

The ATP US Open  Pretenders

Andy Murray +375Tomas Berdych +5500Jo-Wilfred Tsonga +5500John Isner +5500Gael Monfils +6600Kevin Anderson +8000Sam Querrey +8000Lucas Pouille +8000David Goffin +8000Jack Sock +8000Analysis: No. 17 Jack Sock is the highest American in this year rank’s Open, but he’s certainly not winning because of a backhand that you can describe as mediocre, even on the best days. Eight other U.S. men are on this year’s field, including No. 19 John Isner, No. 20, Sam Querrey, No. 35 Steve Johnson, No. 44 Ryan Harrison, No. 61 Donald Young, No. 66 Jared Donaldson, No. 84 Frances Tiafoe, No. 85 Ernesto Escobedo and No. 102 Tennys Sandgren. However, you can also etch it in concrete that nos American male is going to win this year’s national title either.For me, it’s simple. If Roger Federer is fully healthy, he should reach the final at the very least. However, for me, the best value is coming from my expected winner, Sascha Zverev as a value-packed +1300 pick. Zverev is 2-2 in his career against Federer and has every single trait that it takes to be a future slam winner and World No. 1.ATP US Open Picks: Alexander Zverev, Roger Federer, Grigor Dimitrov, Marin Cilic
