The final tennis major of the year is here, yes I’m talking about the US Open. And that means there’s still time to get your futures bets in. On that note, I’m about to throw it over to Rob Trites to tell you who he thinks has a chance to win, and just how much the field has opened up with Roger Federer out due to an injury, and Novak Djokovic looking like he’s human again. That’s right Alex. This US Open is shaping up as being the most competitive major this year. Djokovic has seen his form come crashing back down to earth after his early exit from the Olympics, and his third round elimination from Wimbledon. Before this stretch, the Joker looked pretty unbeatable, so it’s possible he has a nagging injury, or worse, he’s lost his confidence.
If the defending champ is eliminated from this bracket early on, this field gets broken wide open. My favorite picks outside of the Joker, are Milos Raonic at +1800, and Marin Cilic at + 2000. Raonic made his first-ever major final at Wimbledon this year, and will have fresh legs after not competing in Rio. As for Cilic, he won the US Open just two years ago, and was a career win percentage at America’s open. On the women’s side of things, it’s really hard to justify betting on anyone other than Serena Williams. The 22 time major winner is offering really good value of +120, and I’d be a lunatic if I suggested betting on anyone else. What do you think Alex? Yeah Rob, I’m gonna have to agree with you on that one although Serena was beaten by Roberta Vinci in the semi-final of last year’s US Open, she is still the most dominant player in women’s tennis and it’s seriously hard to see that stopping any time now.
