Tennis: 2014 U.S. Open Betting Preview


Tennis betting action heats up in the month of August, with the marquee event the 2014 U.S. Open in New York City. Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams are listed as the favorites on the tennis odds at the online sportsbooks to come out on top in the final major tournament of the 2014 season.

Djokovic is the 13/8 favorite on the odds to win the U.S. Open at Bodog after he won Wimbledon in July. Djokovic’s last payout on the U.S. Open odds came back in 2011, when he beat Rafael Nadal in the final. Djokovic also lost in the final in 2007, 2010, 2012, and 2013.


Nadal won the U.S. Open last season, and he’s at 11/4 on the U.S. Open betting lines at Bodog; Nadal was also the champion at the tournament in 2010. Andy Murray, the 2012 U.S. Open champion, is then at 4/1 odds, with 2004-2008 winner Roger Federer listed fourth at 15/2 odds.

Serena Williams has won the women’s draw of the U.S. Open in each of the last two years, and she’s the 2/1 favorite on the U.S. Open odds at Bodog. Williams has won the U.S. Open a total of five times in her career, including 1999, 2002, and 2008.

Victoria Azarenka and Maria Sharapova – the 2006 U.S. Open champion – are then both at 5/1 odds to win the tournament at Bodog, with Eugenie Bouchard at 7/1 odds. Bouchard has reached the semifinals at each of the last three major tournaments, losing in the final at Wimbledon to Petra Kvitova.

Simona Halep is then at 8/1 odds, with Kvitova at 10/1, and Li Na at 12/1. Samantha Stosur, the 2011 U.S. Open champion, is back at 50/1 odds, with two-time winner Venus Williams an even bigger longshot at 80/1 odds to win the tournament that gets underway on August 25.
