We’re shortly done with the first round of the 2024 French Open, the second Slam of the season. Along with watching the top matches, we enjoy the betting opportunities that come with these events and you can follow our match predictions for some of the most interesting clashes.

How to bet on the French Open 2024? Let’s learn quickly how to go ahead and find the best bookmakers for you and get to know the various odds markets.

First of all, where to bet?

Obviously we want to choose among all the options based on interface, odds selections, deposit options, bonuses tailor-made for the Roland Garros or whatever… However, nowadays, the options depend a lot on your country (and possibly area) of residence and they are sometimes quite limited.

These are a few options to find French Open odds, for some of the main countries:

All of these sportsbooks are easy to sign up at and offer a good selection of odds for the French Open and other major tennis tournaments.

What is the best betting site?

That is hard question to answer as it’s sometimes up to personal opinion and also how you bet. As an example, if you’re looking for bonuses or want to try other kind of gambling products, Betsafe might be a good option. If you are a serious high-stake sports bettor that wants the bookmaker to accept high limits, then Pinnacle is most likely the best option.

If we’re looking at the odds, they are quite similar. Personally I feel that Stake has very good odds and often a bit higher than many of its competitors. They are also known for very fast payments (also withdrawals) which is another important factor.

French Open Betting Markets

Once the French Open main draw is set, following the qualification rounds, there are a few betting odds markets being quickly added to the betting sites.

Futures Betting / Outrights

Overall Winner – As simple as it sounds, bet on the winner of the tournament before it starts or during the event at some bookmakers.

Quarter Winner – Bet on the winner of each quarter of the draw. Below we can see Sinner is big favorite to win Quarter 4 this year, at odds 1.60 (-160)

Match Betting

All French Open matches will be covered by these sites, even the qualifier rounds. So, what are the options and odds markets for a specific match.

Let’s look at tonights night session match where defending Roland Garros champion Novak Djokovic takes on Pierre-Hugues Herbert. Novak is a massive favorite here at odds around 1.03 while a bet on Hugues Herbert pays around 15 times the money.

Other popular markets apart from straight match winner includes the below.

  • Total Games – How many games will there be in the match? Usually you choose over or under a specific number.
  • Total Sets – Same but the number of sets. As an example, over 3 sets would pay good in the above match as everyone is expecting a 3-0 win for Novak.
  • Set Handicap – This is where one of the players is giving a handicap that is being calculated in the actual results. Example: You can bet Novak -9.5 Hcp at odds 2.00 | +100 which means he has to win the match with a margin of at least 10 games in total.
  • Herbert to win at least one set – Yes or No
  • Total Number of Tiebreaks – Will there be one or more tiebreaks in the match?
  • Set Betting – Set the exact set score of the match, example: 3-1 Djokovic at odds 4.00 | +300

You can also find other more detailed options for how to bet on the French Open matches, or even combined markets which are obviously quite hard to predict but they give good payouts. For example “Winner and Total Games” ex: Djokovic & Over 28.5 Games.
