Who will win the Australian Open? The question is more open than in a long time after the strange 2020. Let’s look at the odds.
I don’t bet on tennis and don’t really recommend it as you might lose your money, but many of my friends do and we sometimes discuss odds and predictions. One obvious topic: Who will win the Australian Open?
Good bookies know a lot about the stats behind and the sport and it can be quite interesting to look at the outright winner odds of the Australian Open for example.
Who will win the Australian Open? Men’s tournament
I like the simplicity of decimal odds telling you how many times you multiply your bet if you win. I know it’s not the system generally favored in the US and UK, but, as I said, this website is not about betting.
These are the odds of one large bookmaker ahead of the Australian Open men’s tournament.
Noting out of the ordinary there. You get more money betting on Nadal than on Thiem and Medvedev? Is it the hardcourt factor? Well, Nadal has not won the Australian Open since 2009, so it’s maybe not so strange that he is at 6.50. Is Tsitsipas a bigger favorite than Zverev and Rublev? I don’t really think so. Keen to hear what you think in the comments below!
de Minaur 41.00
Who will win the Australian Open? Women’s tournament
The women’s tournament is significantly more open than the men’s. But there are some interesting questions here. Can Williams win 24? She is definitely one of the favorites and at 11 times your money, it seems like a solid bet. Sabalenka is a surprise, but she was the latest winner on the WTA Tour so maybe she can ride the wave of confidence. She has the firepower, but stringing it together over two weeks might be a big ask.
Andreescu is back from injury, so it’s hard to say what kind of form she will be in.
S. Williams 11.00
Qiang Wang 67.00
