Odds To Win 2019 Australian Open

Australian Open Betting Odds January 10, 2019

In the dregs of January each year, it can be difficult for bettors to find some decent action to wager on but then along comes the tennis season and our wallets open up.

Tennis season is upon us for the 2019 Australian Open, which kicks off Monday at Melbourne Park, and Novak “The Joker” Djokovic is the favorite on the men’s side at +120 while Serena Williams is the fave for the women’s draw at +400.

Let’s take a look at the odds for both draws and explain why Djokovic and Williams are the favorites and if there is value on other contenders.

Will the Joker Continue His Strong Run from 2018?

With six titles at Melbourne Park in his storied career, Novak Djokovic should be the favorite coming into this tournament, especially given the way that he wrapped up the 2018 season. The Joker took Wimbledon and the U.S. Open titles last year and is part of the Big Three in men’s tennis with Roger Federer and Rafa Nadal.

Since 2010, only three players have won this tournament with Djokovic claiming five titles, Federer taking three and Stan Wawrinka being the outlier in 2014 when he upset Nadal. This is why Djokovic or Federer should be the main players to be considered just based on track record. Djokovic looks to be fully recovered from the elbow injury that plagued him last year when he got taken down in the fourth round by Chung Hyeon and at +120, his price tag still offers decent value at this point because it will drop heavily once he makes the quarterfinals.

Federer has won this tournament the last two years and at +500, it’s OK value for a reigning champion, especially since he has either won or made the semifinals at this tourney in every year since 2010. However, Father Time is likely going to catch up with the 37-year-old and I’ll likely steer clear of him and just bet him straight up to win the match when he’s the underdog in the semis and final.

I’d like to tell you that another player like Stan Wawrinka at +3300 has a shot to win but against the likes of Djokovic and Federer, he has an overall record of 8-40 SU in 48 career matches. Don’t get cute – stick to the favorites.

Should Serena Williams Be the Favorite?

Serena Williams had a great reason for not participating in last year’s Australian Open because she was winning in another field in life and that’s motherhood. Williams had just given birth to her daughter in September 2017 and while she had started her comeback to competitive tennis, she withdrew from the 2018 Aussie Open citing lack of preparation and complications from the pregnancy.

Serena came back with a vengeance after the tour moved on from Australia and despite not winning a major, she still finished as the runner-up at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open. She did lose handily to Naomi Osaka at Flushing Meadows but she showed that her play is still at a championship level. Since 2015, she has only lost one match at Melbourne Park and that was in the finals to Angelique Kerber in 2016 while winning in 2015 and 2017 so she should rightfully be the favorite in this draw. Friendly reminder to bettors that she pulled off one of the most memorable feats of all time by an athlete by winning this tourney in 2017 while being two months pregnant. At +400, now would be the time to wager on her before she gets to the latter stages and the value will be all but gone.

But if you’re like me and trying to find value, I’d be looking at Kerber at +1000. Kerber has beaten Williams on this court before and also beat her at Wimbledon in 2018 so taking a flier on her would be a smart bet at this stage.
