2021 US Open Futures Betting Tips

2021 US Open Futures Preview

The US Open, which is the fourth and final tennis Grand Slam of the calendar year, gets underway this weekend in New York. We’ve had plenty of success with our tennis futures bets this season and are confident we’ve got more for you right here!

2021 US Open Futures Betting Tips

Men’s Outright

Only one member of the ‘Big 3’ are playing their part in the men’s draw of the US Open this year and that’s the odds-on favourite in Novak Djokovic. The Serb, who has drawn level with rivals Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer on 20 Grand Slam singles titles, comes in at around $1.67 to win his fourth career US Open title. A title at Flushing meadows in the next fortnight would not only see Djokovic become the sole winningest player in men’s Grand Slam history, but it would also complete a calendar Grand Slam, which no man has done since Rod Laver in 1969.

With so much history on the line for Djokovic also comes the huge pressure that he’s destined to feel and that’s certainly a concern for punters keen to tackle the short odds. Only a couple of weeks ago at the Olympics we saw him cough up a set and break lead against Alexander Zverev to rule out any chance of completing the elusive Golden Slam. Further, Djokovic had to withdraw from his doubles final in Tokyo citing a shoulder injury that’s also forced him out of all the US Open lead-up tournaments. So, with all things considered, there’s just no way we can touch the $1.67 quote and will be looking to others in the men’s draw.

If it’s not Djokovic that takes home the Borg-Warner trophy, then the player we are leaning towards is Daniil Medvedev. The 25-year-old Russian is entering the prime of his career and boasts a season record of 37-9, which has seen him rise to #2 in the world rankings. Medvedev also has two Grand Slam finals under his belt (US Open 2019, Australian Open 2021) and has made it to the final four in his last two attempts at the US Open. Medvedev has also made the final of both of the lead-up tournaments (won Canadian Open, runner-up Cincinnati Masters), which gives us enough confidence to have something on him to win his maiden Grand Slam singles title at 5-1 odds.

Women’s Outright

It’s a different looking field in the women’s draw of the US Open with no Serena or Venus Williams taking part. Both former multi-time champions are forced out due to injury alongside #5 ranked and fellow American in Sofia Kenin. In terms of favourites in the betting market, Australia’s Ash Barty is the clear pick at $4.50 ahead of Naomi Osaka at $6.50, while you can get $13 or better about the rest of the field.

Osaka, who has been in the spotlight a lot this year due to some personal challenges she’s facing, is the most powerful women’s player on her day, but is just impossible to have any confidence with at the moment on the back of multiple tournament withdrawals in recent months. That leaves Ash Barty as the obvious pick of the field in our opinion. The world #1 has a sparkling 40-6 win/loss record this season, which is far better than any of her close rivals. She’s got experience in big finals with two Grand Slam singles titles to her name (French Open 2019, Wimbledon 2021) and is our best bet to claim her first title at Flushing Meadows.

Men’s Quarter 3 Winner

Our favourite bet outside of the men’s and women’s outright market comes from the Men’s Quarter 3 market where we like the odds of Andrey Rublev to take it out. The 23-year-old Russian is arguably the hardest working player on Tour, especially for his age, and is already ranked #7 in the world. Rublev won the most titles of any player in the world last season despite his struggles at Grand Slam events. He boasts a 41-13 win/loss record on the year, which is only bettered by Stefanos Tsitsipas (46-13) of players in his quarter, and has also made it to the quarter finals in his last two Grand Slam events on hard court (Australian Open 2021, US Open 2020). At around $4.50 to go just one step further this time around, it could certainly be worth having something on.
