Should You Bet Against Djokovic at the US Open?

As always the four names dominating modern tennis come head to head for another grand slam: The US Open. It’s all to play for but with Djokovic as the favourite to win after two years out of the game it’s time to exploit these odds and bet against Djokovic.

Djokovic (4.33) is the dominating favourite to win the US Open in online betting sites in the United States such as Vbet Sportsbook. These odds come across as slightly strange when comparing Djokovic to his peers that make up “the big four”. Djokovic has only won the tournament twice whereas his rivals Nadal and Federer have won the grand slam three and five times respectively.

Nadal (5.50)

The last time Nadal and Djokovic came head to head Nadal won in just four sets, a feat repeated from when the Spaniard took the 2013 US Open from Djokovic. There seems to be nothing stopping “The Spanish Bull” this year, according to Internet Sportsbook sites in Spain.


Federer (4.50)

Federer’s five successive wins at the US Open from 2004 through to 2008 was and still is a first in the world of tennis. He is no stranger to the hard court having won 87.6% hard court games. Although Djokovic may have beaten him back in 2015, we can rule this off as an anomaly for the Swiss champion.


Djokovic (4.33)

The world number 12 is back to work after two years out due to injury and has beaten his first top 20 player since his return to the game. His recent form indicates a certain improvement but to stretch that to a grand slam win takes imagination.

Bet against Djokovic at the US Open 2018

Djokovic recently lost in straight sets at the fourth round of the 2018 Australian open. He’s been out of the professional game for the last two years and although he has said “After two years finally I can play without pain”, even at his best, a bet on the Serb to win the US Open would be a stretch. Instead Online Sportsbook sites in the United States suggest Nadal as the most likely victor when you bet against Djokovic.
