2012 U.S. Open Tennis Championships: Men’s Preview and Betting Odds

Filed under: Tennis Betting Odds |


The 2012 U.S. Open in tennis is just right around the corner and will wrap up Grand Slam tournaments for the year.

As always, the stage is set for a huge tournament on the men’s side as the world’s best are set to compete.

For instance, Novak Djokovic is this year’s Australian Open Winner, Rafael Nadal took the French Open and Roger Federer won Wimbledon.  However, one of these three will be absent from this year’s U.S. Open.

Nadal missed the Olympics with tendinitis and has announced that he will not compete in the U.S. Open this year as well.  With his absence, this could make way for someone other than Djokovic or Federer to win the year’s final Grand Slam making it the first time since 2003 that there have been four different Grand Slam winners in the same year.

Andy Murray should be figured into the mix as well, possibly becoming that fourth player.  He has been playing very well which is evident with his Olympics dominance, including ousting Djokovic in this year’s games.  Also, he ousted Federer to win the gold medal so Murray holds a slight dominance over the top-seeded players.

Bovada Sportsbook has begun fielding their 2012 U.S. Open Betting Odds.  Djokovic will enter the tournament as the betting favorite with odds set at 3/2  Following him will be Federer with 11/4 odds and Murray enters with 3/1.

Wagering on the favorite will not have the highest payout though.  For every $1.00 wagered on Djokovic, the payout is $1.50 and for Federer it will be $2.75.  However, betting on longshots will reap the highest reward and for Murray as the third favorite, the payout is greater with a $3.00 payout for every buck wagered.

The 2012 U.S. Open in tennis is set to begin on August 27 and run through September 9.
