2017 French Open Men’s Odds

Rafael Nadal: -135 Novak Djokovic: +450 Andy Murray: +700 Stan Wawrinka: +1000 Dominic Thiem: +1200 Kei Nishikori: +3300 Nick Kyrgios: +3300 Grigor Dimitrov: +4000 David Goffin: +5000 Milos Raonic: +5000 Juan Martin Del Potro: +5000 Alexander Zverev: +5000 Gael Monfils: +6600 Tomas Berdych: +8000 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga: +8000 Lucas Pouille: +10000 Richard Gasquet: +10000 Marin Cilic: +12500 David Ferrer: +12500 Pablo Cuevas: +15000 Fabio Fognini: +15000 Jack Sock: +15000 Pablo Carreno-Busta: +20000 John Isner: +20000 Gilles Simon: +20000 Benoit Paire: +20000 Kevin Anderson: +25000 Feliciano Lopez: +25000 As you can see,  World No. 4 Rafael Nadal at -135 is the clear-cut prohibitive favorite to win his record 10th French open title after winning Masters 100 events in Monte Carlo and Madrid for the first time since 2010. Reigning French Open champ and current World No. 2 Novak Djokovic at +450 will give Rafa a run for the title after reaching the final of the Italian open this past weekend. World No. 1 Andy Murray is a +700 pick but there’s even more value for World No. 3 Stan Wawrinka as a +100 pick, seeing as how won the French Open in stunning fashion in 2015. Dominic Thiem (+1200), Kei Nishikori (+3300), Nick Kyrgios (+3300), Grigor Dimitrov (+4000) and David Goffin (+5000) will all challenge to make deep runs, but for me, it is Italian Open winner and World No. 10 Alexander Zverev (+5000) that is offering more ‘real’ value of any player in the ATP draw. Now, let’s move over to the women’s side of the draw.

2017 French Open Women’s Odds

Simona Halep +400 Garbine Muguruza +800 Angelique Kerber +900 Elina Svitolina +1400 Svetlana Kuznetsova +1400 Karolina Pliskova +1600 Kristina Mladenovic +1600 Johanna Konta +2200 Caroline Wozniacki +2500 Laura Siegemund +2500 Daria Kasatkina +2800 Petra Kvitova +3300 Madison Keys +3300 Lucie Safarova +3300 Agnieszka Radwanska +3300 Eugenie Bouchard +3300 Timea Bacsinszky +4000 Belinda Bencic +4000 Carla Suarez Navarro +4000 Coco Vandeweghe +5000 Dominika Cibulkova +5000 Venus Williams +6600 Ekaterina Makarova +6600 Sam Stosur +6600 Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova +6600 Sloane Stephens +8000 Caroline Garcia +8000 Jelena Ostapenko +8000 2017 French Open Women’s Odds With World No. 1 Serena Williams out of the field and former French Open winner Maria Sharapova also out because of the refusal of Roland Garros officials to issue her a wild card following her PED-related suspension, it looks like the 2017 French Open is completely up for grabs. World No. 4 Simona Halep has been installed as a +400 favorite and she could be primed to win the first grand slam of her career after winning in Madrid and reaching the finals of the Italian Open this past weekend. World No. 6 Elina Svitolina is looking quite dangerous as a value-packed +1400 pick after winning her fourth title of the year by bagging the title in Rome this past weekend. While she’s had more than he share of struggles this year, World No. 5 Garbine Muguruza is a +800 No. 2 favorite seeing as how she won last year’s French Open title. World No. 11 Venus Williams plays well on clay despite never winning a French Open title and is offering some damned good value as a +6600 pick. Last but not least, I like the value that World No. 56 Eugenie Bouchard is offering seeing as how she’s clearly got grand slam potential, despite struggling mightily for the better part of the last 18 months.
