Odds: Halep & Nadal Eyed to Win Roland Garros
Date Posted: June 9, 2017
The French Open 2017 final rounds are about to take place this weekend. With only the top athletes of this grand slam left, all eyes are now on the heavy favorites for both the men’s and women’s singles division.
For the men’s single, Rafael Nadal is the clear favorite of the Bitcoin sportsbook platforms for the French Open. With Serena Williams not in the roster this season, Simona Halep takes the favored spot in the women’s singles.
Checking the odds on William Hill, Andy Murray has 2.10 odds of winning against Stan Wawrinka who has odds of 1.73. Rafael Nadal has 1.22 odds in his match versus Dominic Thiem with 4.20 odds.
This year’s French Open title seems to be for Nadal. The player knows his way around the clay floor and has held the title nine times already. Nadal is simply in his element at Roland Garros. In his last match with Busta, Nadal had no problem delivering high spin hits on clay.
The one to face him this Friday is Dominic Thiem. Thiem is also a beast to compete with on clay. Despite 4.20 odds, he has a good shot at beating Nadal. Thiem was the only one who won against Nadal throughout the clay season.
The next match in the men’s single will have the first world ranking player (Murray) against the 3rd world ranking player (Wawrinka). Both have three grand slams title under his belt, though it is Wawrinka who took the French Open title in 2015.
Ever since Andy Murray took the top ranking, he has been struggling through some of his matches recently. Wawrinka, on the other hand, has gone on a winning streak where he did not drop a single set until the semi-finals.
With the odds of 2.10 for Murray, the top seed player’s defense play has served him well in the previous matches. If Murray can answer Wawrinka’s serve, the top seed could move on to the finals.
The women’s side of the French Open has moved on to the finals this Saturday. Bet365 has Jelena Ostapenko at 3.75 and Simona Halep at 1.28.
It is hardly a surprise for Halep to move on to the finals. She looked to be in top form in her last match against Pliskova. Halep has an aggressive offense and can return Pliskova’s attacks with a good consistency.
Much is at stake this Saturday. A win in the finals could get Halep the top seed spot for the very first time. However, Ostapenko will not make it easy on Halep for this match.
The unseeded Ostapenko came out of nowhere when she reached the French Open. Her play style was incredibly aggressive where her attacks are incredibly risky. Despite committing many errors, Ostapenko never lets up on her barrage of attacks against Bacsinszky. The 3.75 odds on Ostapenko make her a profitable wager to back than Halep.
