Bet on Rafael Nadal and Ashleigh Barty to win French Open titles!
Barring weather issues, the Women's French Open Final goes at 9:00 AM ET on Saturday, June 8, 2019. Ashleigh Barty will face Marketa Vondrousova as both women will be playing in their first ever tennis Grand Slam Final. After a first set loss, Bartly defeated 17-year-old American Amanda Anisimova 6-7(4), 6-3, 6-3 while Vondrousova upset Johanna Konta 7-5, 7-6(2) in the semifinal round.
Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer in straight sets (6-3, 6-4, 6-2) and now aims for his 12th French Open Championship. The "King of Clay" has never lost in a French Open Final and we can't see it happening here. Nadal will face Dominic Thiem who upset Novak Djokovic (6-2, 3-6, 7-5, 5-7, 7-3) in a grueling semifinal match. The Men's Final goes on Sunday, June 9, 2019, at 9:00 AM ET.
The men’s draw has gone entirely to plan at this year’s French Open as the top four seeds will face off for a spot in the final.
Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer
The headline semi-final is between King of Clay Rafael Nadal and the G.O.A.T. Roger Federer, and the latter will be trying to stop the former from taking one step closer to his all time grand slam record. Incredibly, Nadal is aiming for his twelfth career French Open title, and is the resounding favourite on his preferred surface.
The great duo have contested plenty of high profile matches at Rolland Garros over the years, including the 2011 final which Nadal won in straight sets.
If you look at the record between these two throughout history, Nadal has an almost unassailable record on clay which perhaps explains the fact that he is at 1.14 to win this one. This might be another match where it is better value to pick Nadal in straight sets.
World number-one Novak Djokovic will enter his match against fourth-seed Austrian Dominic Thiem as the bookies’ top option, and the odds correctly predict that this match will be much closer than the other men's semi-final.
Djokovic will of course be aiming for his fourth consecutive grand slam and sixteenth overall, although Thiem plays his best tennis on clay and may prove to be a tough challenge for the hard-court loving Serb.
Expect this to go beyond three sets - we’re picking Thiem to make the most of his opportunity to reach another final against Nadal, while Djokovic will fall one match short in his attempt to hold all four grand slam trophies at the same time.
The women’s draw continues to astonish and bemuse even the most avid follower of women’s tennis. The quarter-final results were simply unpredictable, and it results in number-eight seed Australian Ashleigh Barty becoming the highest-ranked remaining player after Simona Halep’s unbelievable loss to seventeen year-old Amanda Anisimova.
We backed against the young American in the quarter finals - nobody predicted she would topple the third seed and defending champion - but now there’s a sense that it could be a fairytale finish for Anisimova.
You’ll get fantastic head to head French Open odds on her winning this one and reaching her first grand slam final, and as long as she mirrors her quarter-final performance, this is a solid outsider bet.
Johanna Konta will be aiming to be the first British woman since 1976 to reach a French Open final, and her surprising win over Sloane Stephens sees her coming up against 31st seed Marketa Vondrousova, who is yet to drop a set at this year's tournament.
This is another women’s match that could simply go either way, but we’re going to pick Vondrousova to continue her dominance and win this one in straight sets as well.
It's an all Swiss quarter-final and Stan Warwinka will be a tough opponent for Roger Federer to overcome given their long history of playing against each other. Warwinka is three years younger than Federer, although age has barely been a factor for Roger as he has wound the clock back recently. His odds perhaps flatter him a little here, although we think Federer will do enough for the win.
Nishikori was taken to five sets against local hopeful Benoit Paire, while king of clay Nadal has done it easy all tournament as expected. Japan's best simply won't be close to one of the greatest of all time. You simply can't back against Nadal here. The head-to-head isn't worth a bet, so go for the win in three sets.
Thiem still represents the best chance to dethrone Nadal and Djokovic at the French Open over the next few years, and once again we expect him to be in the semi-finals. His Russian opponent has never made it this far in a grand slam, and while it would be a huge shock to see him upset Thiem, he is young and fearless and could pose a problem. Still, the safe money is on Austrian Thiem here.
The French Open men's draw has gone mostly to plan so far, with all of the top six seeds remaining in the hunt. Zverev is the fifth seed, and while certainly a future contender alongside Dominic Thiem, he still isn't quite good enough to beat an in-form Novak Djokovic. Once again, the odds on the favourite here are quite low, so we recommend trusting the Serbian number-one to win in straight sets
It's been a typical unpredictable women's draw where nearly all of the big guns have crashed out early. This match features 31st seed Martic against unseeded Vondrousova, and it really could go either way. Martic knocked out 2nd seed Karolina Pliskova, yet Vondrousova has not dropped a set so far and is considered the favourite. It's tight, but we're picking Martic here.
Sloane Stephens finds herself as the second-highest ranked player left in the draw, although she comes up against Johanna Konta who has never made it this far at the French Open. Stephens made the final last year, and she really should be there again in 2019, so go for the American here.
Madison Keys made it to the semi-finals of the French Open in 2018, although Ashleigh Barty is the higher-seed coming into this match and also the bookies' favourite. This is another tough match to call, but we're going with the underdog Keys here.
Out of all the women's quarter-finals, this looks to be the most straight forward. Simona Halep is easily the best player left in the draw and really should be going on to win the tournament from here. Anisimova has done brilliantly to make it this far, considering she is just 17 years of age, but ultimately will fall short here.
The French Open has been open to participants since 1925 and has been contested by some of the biggest names in tennis throughout history.
The clay courts of Roland-Garros are significantly challenging for players who grow up playing on grass or hard courts. That is why the French Open often throws up searly stage surprises.
There are a number ofRoland Garros oddsavailable. From outright markets to individual match and player performance props, there is something for everyone at this event. Posted above, check out the latest odds to win the French Open in 2019. Below are some top players to consider.
Who is playing in the French Open Men's Singles
He may be approaching the end of his career, but Rafael Nadal will once again enter Roland-Garros as one of the favourites in the French Open odds to win market. The King of Clay has won the event eleven times - a record for any player at any of the four major slams. Nadal will be doing his best to make it an even dozen in 2019. With 1.909 odds at Spin Sports - Nadal is the favorite again.
His biggest obstacle in 2019 will be Novak Djokovic, who is in red-hot form at the moment. Djokovic has won the last three consecutive grand slams, and will hold all four at once if he can win at the French Open. He will be especially eager, with one career French Open victory, and he has 3.50 second chalk odds.
Clay-court specialist Dominic Thiem is also a chance if the top online sportsbooks are to be believed. At 8.23, he is the only other player listed with single digit odds in the Men's Singles Winner market.
Who are the favourites to win the French Open Women's Singles
While the men's draw features two standout players, the women's draw is as open as ever. Favorite Simona Halep has recent 4.77 odds for victory in Paris. She won her first and only grand slam at the event in 2018, and will be looking to defend her title.
Surprisingly dropping, Serena Williams, who appears fourth on the odds table with a 15.00 price at Spin Sports. The 23-time grand slam winner is still looking for her first grand slam since having her first child, and while the French Open has been her least prolific out of the four slams, she has still managed to win three times at Roland-Garros.
From there, you'll find a host of players in contention with odds of 11.00 to 19.00. Last year's runner-up Sloane Stephens is priced at15.00, while Naomi Osaka, who will be chasing a third consecutive slam, appears at 12.00 despite falling out of form recently. It really is anyone's tournament to win in 2019.
The French Open also includes doubles tournaments for both men's, women's and mixed doubles. Here are last year's winners in the French Open doubles odds markets, and the likely frontrunners for 2019:
Men's - Pierre-Hugues Herbert & Nicolas Mahut
Women's - Barbora Krejcikova & Katerina Siniakova
Mixed - Ivan Dodig & Latisha Chan
French Open Betting Picks
Our top French Open picks for 2019 are Rafael Nadal & Petra Kvitova
While Novak Djokovic is back to the top of his game, our French Open prediction is for Rafael Nadal to once again win at his most prolific event. For many, it may be a toss of a coin between Nadal and Djokovic, and there is a huge chance that they will both reach the final We would back Nadal in a French Open final every day of the week, even if he is getting slightly old. His odds of winning are currently 210 at Spin Sports.
The women's draw is exceptionally difficult to predict. Simona Halep continues to impress on clay, but one of the standout performers on clay in 2019 so far has been Petra Kvitova, who really caught the eye at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart recently. She could be one to watch at Rolland-Garros, and you'll get great odds of 15.00 at SportsInteraction if you act now.
The French Open Betting Odds available on these players will only decrease as the tournament nears, so get on early.
What are the types of bets available at the French Open
In addition to tournament outright betting, there are several ways to bet on individual matches at the French Open.
French Open Over Under Odds
Over Under betting is available on a number of tennis betting odds, most commonly the total games market. The sportsbook will give you a number of games (for example 35.5), and it will be up to you to determine if there will be less or more throughout the match.
Let's use last year's French Open men's final as an example. Rafael Nadal was the firm favourite against Dominic Thiem, although the line was set at 35.5 games. This means that the sportsbooks were counting on three very tight sets, or potentially the match going to a fourth set, even though it seemed reasonable to predict a straight sets victory to Novak given the form he has been in.
The match ended as such, 6-4, 6-3, 6-2, making for a total of 27 games - well under the line. A simple unders bet would have fetched you around -112, but if you had picked your own line and chosen under +29.5 games for example, you would have taken home winnings at 4.20.
French Open Correct Score Odds
The correct score market lets you select the winning margin in terms of sets. For example, in last year's French Open women's final Simona Halep won in three sets - 3-6, 6-4, 6-1. If you had picked her to win 2:1, the odds available were 3.77.
French Open Asian Handicap Odds
Asian Handicaps at the French Open focus on the number of games a player wins in a match, although unlike the over/under market, you will see a player with a handicap such as -3.5. This means that this player would need to win the match by 4 clear games or more, so if your player won 6-4, 6-4, you would win your wager.
French Open Odds Evens Odds
Odds and Evens betting is a toss of a coin and allows you to select whether there will be an odd or even number of games in a set or match.
For example, the Men's 2018 final featured 27 games, so the odds would have won. The payout here will always be around 1.89.
