Must-Bet French Open Semifinals Odds: A Look Ahead to the Men's Semis

Must-Bet French Open Semifinals Odds: A Look Ahead to the Men’s Semis

It’s been a great two weeks of tennis at Roland Garros. There have been upsets, but, for the most part, the best players have advanced, and we could have some all-time great finals matchups. The women’s final, if the semis go as expected, could be Iga Swiatek vs. Aryna Sabalenka (the top two players in the world), while Novak Djokovic and Carlos Alcaraz meet in one men’s semi and Alex Zverev, who suffered a brutal ankle injury in last year’s French Open semis, takes on Casper Ruud in the other men’s semifinal. 

As good as the finals should be, we still have to get through the semifinals. Let’s take a quick look at the remaining French Open outright lines as of Friday and preview some of the must-bet semifinal matches.


Must-Bet French Open Semifinals Odds: A Look Ahead to the Men’s Semis | MyBookie Roland Garros Preview

Roland Garros Semi finals: Thursday 8 June, Friday 9 June, 2023


Novak Djokovic (+160) vs. Carlos Alcaraz (-227) | Semifinal Matches

French Open Odds: Djokovic +167 vs. Alcaraz -217
Friday, June 9 at 9:30 am ET

It’s not often Djokovic is an underdog, let alone in the semifinals of a Grand Slam, but that’s how good Carlos Alcaraz has been this year. He’s especially good on clay, with a record of 25-2 this season. The world No. 1 can cement his status as the future of the sport with a win on Friday, while Djokovic can become the all-time leader in Grand Slam victories with 23.

Surprisingly, Djokovic actually has a better career winning percentage on clay than Alcaraz, yet it’s his worst surface. It’s incredibly tempting to bet Djokovic with plus money here, but Alcaraz is 16 years younger, and Djokovic has been on the court for in excess of three hours more than the Spaniard. Alcaraz is also 1-0 in his career against Djokovic.

The smart money is on Alcaraz, but expect this to go at least four sets. The prop Alcaraz and over 38.5 games (+192) is a decent value bet. Alternatively, betting on the match to go four sets pays out +154. 


Alexander Zverev (-127) vs. Casper Ruud (-107) | Semifinal Matches

French Open Odds: Zverev -121 vs. Ruud -103
Friday, June 9 at 9:30 am ET

This is a matchup about fate. Zverev, as mentioned, suffered a terrible ankle injury in last year’s semifinal against Rafael Nadal and hasn’t really been himself since returning to play. Fortunately, the 2020 Olympic champion seems to be rounding into form at Roland Garros, having dropped only two sets through five matches.

Ruud, meanwhile, advanced to the semis by beating Holger Rune for the second consecutive year in the French Open. Ruud reached the final of the 2022 French Open and is looking to become the first back-to-back finalist not named Nadal since Dominic Thiem in 2019. 

Zverev holds a 2-1 advantage in three career matches against Ruud, but they have never played on clay before. They both have a career 68 percent success rate in matches on clay, so this should also be a long, back-and-forth match. Zverev and over 39.5 sets pays out +236.
