2019 U.S. Open Men’s Odds To Win
- Novak Djokovic +110
- Rafael Nadal +400
- Roger Federer +550
- Daniil Medvedev +1400
- Alexander Zverev +2500
- Marin Cilic +2500

- Stan Wawarinka +3300
Which player among the Big 3 has the best odds comparable to chance of winning the 2019 U.S. Open?
On paper, it looks tough to beat Novak Djokovic. Djokovic beat Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open and beat Roger Federer at Wimbledon. Not only that, but he has 3 U.S. Open titles, including winning in 2018.
But, Djokovic was all out to beat Federer at the Wimbledon Finals. He also lost to Dominic Thiem at the French Open and heads into this after losing in the Western & Southern Open semis.
At the odds Djokovic is a play against. So, the question is whether Rafa or Roger has the best shot at upsetting Djokovic. Nadal won the 2017 U.S. Open. He comes into this hot after beating Daniil Medvedev and winning the Rogers Cup in his last tournament played. He most definitely deserves consideration at +400.
He’s also a better play than Federer, who hasn’t won a U.S. Open since 2008. Give the nod to Rafa over Djokovic.
Name one longshot that can upset Nadal, Djokovic, or Federer?
Rafael Nadal made quick work of Daniil Medvedev at the Rogers Cup Finals. However, Medvedev upset Djokovic at the Western & Southern Open semifinals. Medvedev most definitely deserves a look. The odds are somewhat short, though.
The best Dominic Thiem has ever done at the U.S. Open was making it to the quarterfinals. But, that was in 2018. He can definitely improve on that finish this year. Not only that, but he hasn’t played since the Rogers Cup. He should be fresh.
2019 U.S. Open Women’s Odds to Win
- Serena Williams +400
- Simona Halep +700
- Naomi Osaka +800
- Ashleigh Barty +800
- Sloane Stephens +1200
- Angelique Kerber +1200
- Madison Keyes +1200
- Petra Kvitova +1200
- Karolina Pliskova +1200
- Garbine Muguruza +2000
- Elina Svitolina +2000
- Kiki Bertens +2500
Which player among Williams, Halep, Barty, and Osaka has the best shot of winning the U.S. Open?
Serena has had a tendency to tire towards the end of tournaments. Even if she makes the semis or finals, she’s a bad play as the favorite. Osaka hasn’t had a great 2019. She’s been on a down turn since winning the Australian Open in January. Barty took the French Open this year, but she struggled at Wimbledon and hasn’t been sharp.
That leaves us with Simona. Halep won Wimbledon. She hasn’t done much since then, losing in the quarterfinals at the Rogers Cup and losing in the third round at the Western & Southern Open. However, Halep’s attention, no doubt, has been on the U.S. Open. She can make it back-to-back major wins and the odds are decent.
Which +1200 odds choice can take the U.S. Open this year?
Karolina Pliskova won the 2016 U.S. Open. She beat Angelique Kerber at the Nature Valley Classic and made it to the quarterfinals at both the Rogers Cup and the Western & Southern Open. Of the +1200 choices, Pliskova looks best.
Which player among Muguruza, Svitolina, and Bertens has the best chance of winning the 2019 U.S. Open Tournament?
Save for the French Open, Elina Svitolina has played well in major tournaments this year. She lost to Naomi Osaka at the Australian Open quarterfinals. Osaka won that tournament. She lost to Simona Halep at the Wimbledon Semifinals. Simona went on to beat Serena Williams at the Wimbledon Finals.
Elina Svitolina has what it takes to make a deep U.S. Open run. She’s worth a look at decent odds.
