Grand Slam 2018 Odds: Who Will Win in Men’s Singles?
November 3, 2017
Bookmakers have already released their Grand Slam 2018 odds for next year. This sports betting market includes the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, and US Open.
With the odds ready, Bitcoin sportsbook sites lean toward four of the top players for the Grand Slam in the men’s division. These are Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, and Andy Murray.
Australian Open is a very close match for the four favored players. William Hill has Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer at 4.00 odds. Novak Djokovic is also close with 4.50 while Andy Murray is not far behind with 5.50 odds.
It should not be a surprise to anyone who closely follows recent Grand Slams to see Federer and Nadal being the favored to win the next Australian Open. Federer is the title holder of the first Grand Slam tournament this year with Nadal the runner-up.
Odds, however, still favor Djokovic’s history in the Australian Open despite not making the semi-finals this year. He currently has six titles for the Men’s Australian Open which is the highest record that any player can hold for this Grand Slam.
William Hill is leaning more on the best clay court player among the four for the French Open. The Bitcoin sportsbook is setting Rafael Nadal at 2.00 to win. Novak Djokovic is the only one close to Nadal with 6.00 odds.
For Nadal, clay is like water to a fish. Nadal is the king of the clay season with only one defeat and 17 wins before the French Open. His victory this year nets him his 10th French Open title.
The tables have turned in Wimbledon for Roger Federer who was given 26.00 odds to win by William Hill at the French Open. Bet365 puts him at the top spot with odds of 3.75. Djokovic and Murray are close with odds of 5.00 while Nadal is set with 7.00.
Federer is a beast in the Wimbledon. This year, he took his eighth Wimbledon title without even dropping a set. It is the first time that anyone has achieved this feat since Bjorn Borg in 1976. Federer’s powerful serve may continue to prop him as the top player in next year’s Wimbledon.
The spotlight for the US Open is on Djokovic with Bet365 setting him at 4.00. Federer and Nadal is the close second with 5.50 odds with Murray at 7.00.
Bookmakers might be basing Djokovic’s odds with his past record in the US Open. The Serbian player won two titles in 2011 and 2015 against Nadal and Federer.
He dropped out of this year’s US Open due to an injury. According to Pete Sampras though, Djokovic will be a tough contender next year when he gets back in top form after resting his injury.
