Andy Murray still doesn’t have a Grand Slam title to his list of achievements in tennis. But maybe his Gold Medal win at the 2012 London Olympic games has given him the extra boost he needs to notch his first Major win.
At the 2012 U.S Open, Murray has his next opportunity to win his first Grand Slam title. But it won’t be easy, as he will face Novak Djokovic on Monday afternoon in the final of the last Grand Slam of the season.
Murray defeated Tomas Berdych in the semifinal on Saturday in four sets, winning the last three after dropping the opening set.
As for Djokovic, he took down David Ferrer in the same fashion, also dropping the first set before winning three straight sets to advance to the final as the defending champion.
So who gets the edge in this U.S Open Final.
Murray vs Djokovic U.S Open Betting Odds available at Bovada Sportsbook have set Djokovic as the favorite to repeat his title from 2011. Djokovic claimed his first U.S Open championship in 2011. He is going off at -270 on the moneyline to defeat Murray, who comes in on the other side of the betting line and payout at +200.
Essentially, to profit $100 for a bet on Djokovic, a $270 wager would need to be made. For Murray, paying out at +200 is the same as saying that the betting line is going off at 2/1. So we can see the disparity on the odds, and how much of a favorite Djokovic is. It’s not a huge line, but we can definitely peg Djokovic as the assertive favorite.
These two are definitely familiar with each other, so there shouldn’t be any surprises. It will come down to who is playing the better tennis today.
The crowd favorite might be Murray, as crowds tend to pull for the underdog. It seems like Murray has been right on the cusp of breaking through. It would be something if he gets the victory now, after winning the gold medal. It would go to show how confidence and the experience of winning something like that can completely shift the mindset of a competitor.
Murray and Djokovic will play the U.S Open Final on Monday, with coverage picked up by ESPN2.
