Simona Halep +400

I’ve always believed that Simona Halep would win a grand slam title at some point and now is the perfect time for the fiery Romanian to get it done. Halep is a robust 18-6 on the year with one title in Madrid and took second place at the recently completed Italian Open. Halep has the wheels, consistency and accuracy to outlast anyone in the field whether she gets it done or not.

Halep is 11-1 on clay in her last two tournaments and an impressive 14-2 in her last three clay court tournaments overall.

Garbine Muguruza +800

The 2016 French Open winner and fifth-ranked player in the world has struggled immensely in going 17-10 this year with no titles. Still the lanky Spaniard will have a shot because of her fire power and her ability to move like a smaller player on clay. Still though, I don;t see her winning this year’s French Open title.

Angelique Kerber +900

Well, clearly World No. 1 Angelique Kerber has found out that staying at the top is a lot harder than actually getting there. The 2016 Aussie and U.S. Open winner is just 19-12 this year with no titles and she’s never come close to winning the French Open. I think it’ll take a miracle for the German superstar to reach the quarters.

Elina Svitolina +1400

The sixth-ranked player in the world is on fire! Elina Svitolina won the Italian Open two weeks ago to claim her fourth title of the year. Svitolina will enter the French Open with a blistering 31-6 this year and has won at Taipei, Dubai and Istanbul. The 22-year-old Ukrainian star will have a real shot to win here and is offering stupendous odds for a player that really could!

Venus Williams +6600

Venus Williams +6600

At +6600, I love the return that Venus Williams is offering should she manage to find her way into the winner’s circle at this year’s French Open. The World No. 11 has compiled a fine 17-6 record this year and dialed back the hands of time to reach the finals of the Aussie Open opposite sister Serena. Williams has also reached the quarterfinals in Rome and the semifinals in Miami, so she’s got a very realistic chance.

No. 1 Angelique Kerber vs. Ekaterina Makarova

If World No. 40 Ekaterina Makarova had any ‘heart’ whatsoever, I might be inclined to pick her for the upset, with the key word being ‘might.’ Kerber wins in three tough sets.

No. 4 Garbine Muguruza vs. Francesca Schiavone

What’s that I smell? Oh yeah, an upset just waiting to happen. I know Francesca Schiavone is just 15-11 in what will be her final season on tour, but the diminutive superstar won the French open in 2009 and she should be good for the upset here over a player that is struggling with a capital ‘S.’

No. 5 Elina Svitolina vs. Yaroslava Shvedova

I’m thinking this first round match could be over in an hour. Elina Svitolina wins with ease!

Jana Cepelova vs. No. 3 Simona Halep

Really? Throw some money on this match because Simona Halep is as close to a lock as it gets. Say goodbye to Jana Cepelova in two sets everyone!
