Many stars are born in this stage including Naomi Osaka and Sloane Stephens from the previous tournaments. Every dog has a shot with the women’s tournament although it’s a different story for the men as Novak Djokovic should continue to reign. We break down the US Open betting odds.

US Open Odds 2019 Quick Facts:

  • Only Serena Williams has repeated as champion in the last eight US Opens
  • No male tennis player has repeated as champion since Roger Federer in 2008, over 10 years ago
  • The US has produced the most US Open Champions (19) followed by Australia (6) and Switzerland (6) since the Open Era
  • In 1975, the US Open became the first Grand Slam tournament to host night games
  • Serena Williams is tied for the most US Open titles (6) with Chris Evert 

US Open Odds 2019: Andreescu and the Top Women Underdog Bets

Bianca Andreescu (15.00)

She won’t be much of an underdog per US Open odds now that she won the Rogers Cup.

The 19-year-old Canadian shocked the tennis world when she took out the likes of Kiki Bertens and Karolina Pliskova en route to beating Serena Williams, albeit via injury, to capture her first notable championship. The win has catapulted atop the US Open odds winner lists. 

Here are other potential underdog bets who could also come through as a surprise winner:

Madison Keys (13.00)

Keys has always been a bridesmaid but never the bride in the US Open.

The 24-year-old American was a finalist in 2017 and a semifinalist last year. An aggressive baseliner, Keys’ power is matched only by a few, especially with her serve.

This makes her game perfect for the US Open. Her emphatic playing style coupled by being a hometown hero will give her plenty of push.

Aryna Sabalenka (29.00)

Like Andreescu and Keys, Sabalenka is another power player. With an aggressive baseliner style, Sabalenka also has a powerful serve and scores most of her points via groundstroke.

She won her first key tournament last year in Wuhan and is trending up as the 9th-ranked player. The 21-year-old could be following in the footsteps of countrywoman Victoria Azarenka, who was a back-to-back finalist.

Kiki Bertens (34.00)

She hasn’t been as hot lately, hence her steep odds at winning the US Open. But Bertens’ best performances come on the hardcourt as she was the defending Cincy champion.

She has all the tools to make it deep into the tournament but just hasn’t put it together. She’ll need plenty of things to go right for her, but as far as winners nobody saw coming, she’s worth noting.

US Open Odds: Djokovic vs The Contenders and a Canadian Underdog

It might be a free-for-all for the women’s US Open odds, but it’s an entirely different story for the men’s.

Novak Djokovic (2.10)

He is once again the runaway favourite. The Serb is back at his best and has already won the Australian Open and Wimbledon this year. But he has never won consecutive US Opens. He could be due. 

Not many can stand a chance against “Djoker”. We have the two most obvious candidates to pull off the upset. But there’s also a Canadian longshot who could get lucky:

Rafael Nadal (5.00)

The “King of Clay” has his second-best performances in the US Open. Nadal holds a 2-1 edge over Djokovic at the US Open although Djokovic is 15-11 versus him in all finals.

If anyone can hope to stop Djoker, it’s Nadal but only if he doesn’t get upset himself. Since returning to form in 2017, Nadal has fallen mostly only to the likes of Djokovic and Federer. If it’s between him and Djoker, roll the dice at these odds.

Roger Federer (8.50)

Once upon a time, Federer ruled the US Open. He won five consecutive titles, a streak that may not be beaten for a while. But he hasn’t won a US Open in over a decade. He hasn’t made it further than the quarterfinals since 2015. Federer will need plenty of help to win his sixth US Open and that includes having Djokovic and Nadal eliminated before he faces them. 

Milos Raonic (51.00)

Speaking of plenty of help, the Canadian will also need a lot of luck to emerge as the US Open odds winner. Raonic has underperformed in the US Open despite his hard-hitting style and powerful serve being an advantage on the surface. He’ll look to finally reach the quarterfinals and maybe more.

How to Bet the US Open Odds Winner

Snailing the correct US Open odds winner is a tall task.

Even if it seems predictable, upsets happen all the time. You can look to bet more than one winner depending on the odds. But to maximize your bets, you need to find the right sportsbooks.

Combine your tennis knowledge with the right sportsbook and find the best odds. You never know when your upset pick will cash in and give you a huge payday!
