Novak Djokovic And Andy Murray Tied Atop 2013 U.S. Open Betting Lines

Andy MurrayThe final Grand Slam of the 2013 tennis season is set to get underway on Monday, August 26th with the playing of the U.S. Open. Through three Grand Slams we’ve seen some fantastic tennis played on both the men’s and women’s side.

Wimbledon produced one of the greatest moments in recent history with Andy Murray finally capturing that elusive title he so desperately wanted.

As the calendar flips to the U.S. Open, Murray enters as the defending champion for the first time in a Grand Slam. The 2012 U.S. Open was Murray’s first Major Championship victory, as he has now won two of the last four.

If Murray hopes to make it two-straight Grand Slam wins and two-straight U.S. Open titles, he will have to contend with the top-two favorites to win the 2013 U.S. Open on betting odds available at Bovada Sportsbook.

Murray might be the defending champion, but two previous winners in this event in Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are out in front. In fact, both Djokovic and Nadal are installed with equal betting odds at 2/1. Murray is not far behind at all though, going off at 11/4, which is under a 3 to 1 payout on the betting line.

The odds jump up after these three, which is surprising because the typical fourth member to this group is well back. In fact, Roger Federer is the No.7 seed in this event, which is his highest seed at a Grand Slam in a decade. Federer is even behind Juan Martin Del Potro on the betting line. Del Potro sits at 10//1, while Federer is at 11/1.

Clearly the odds are favoring the three players at the top, and why not? They are the three winners of the 2013 Grand Slam events thus far, with each having one title to their credit.

Murray might come in with the most confidence though, as the defending champion here and fresh off the win at Wimbledon.

Outside of the overall odds to win the U.S. Open, Bovada has also formulated a unique betting line relating to both the men’s and women’s draw. They have combined the two to form odds for both the men’s and women’s winners together, forming a combination.

For example, Djokovic and Serena Williams and Nadal and Williams are both set at 9/2. To win this bet, both players would have to win. The only options for the women are Williams and Victoria Azarenka. For the men it’s Djokovic, Nadal, Murray, and even Del Potro.
