2022 US Open Tennis Odds and Picks

The final Grand Slam of the 2022 season is quickly approaching at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York. The US Open begins on August 29 with the final match scheduled to take place on September 11. TheSportsGeek has the latest US Open tennis odds from the best online sportsbooks.

Novak Djokovic is officially out of the US Open as a result of his vaccination status.

Djokovic went to the US Open Final against Daniil Medvedev last year. He was upset by Medvedev in the most impressive performance of his career. Medvedev cleared Djokovic in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4.

Unfortunately, we won’t get to see Djokovic follow up his Wimbledon title with another Grand Slam bid at the US Open. Djokovic won at Wimbledon for his 21st Grand Slam. He isn’t on the US Open tennis odds board, but a lot of good players are going to be in New York.

MEDVEDEV AGAIN?

Medvedev was banned from Wimbledon for being Russian, though the US Open is an ATP Tour event and they weren’t happy with the Wimbledon decision. He will have a chance to defend his title without Djokovic in the mix.

Without Djokovic in the tournament, Medvedev is the favorite on the US Open tennis men’s odds board. He can be so hot and cold that I don’t know if I’m running to the window to bet Medvedev as a favorite.

On the women’s side, how much faith do we have in Emma Raducanu repeating as the WTA US Open winner? I have my doubts. She hasn’t done much since winning the US Open and has been quickly approaching the overrated territory.

Iga Swiatek and Simona Halep aren’t going to make this tournament easy on the women in New York.

Let’s look deeper into the US Open men’s tennis odds and the US Open tennis women’s odds below. We’re also making our 2022 US Open picks at TheSportsGeek.

US Open Men’s Tennis Odds

Daniil Medvedev is at the top of the US Open tennis betting odds for the men at +220 or thereabout, depending on where you shop. If you’re looking to line shop the US Open, click on our best tennis betting sites page for more information.

THE FAVORITE BY DEFAULT

There was no question whom the US Open men’s favorite was going to be without Djokovic. Medvedev won the US Open last year and he’s the No. 1 ranked player on the ATP Tour.

There has to be better value out there than betting the inconsistent Medvedev at +220, though. His draw isn’t the best, either, as Medvedev has a tough road ahead of him.

As good as he can be, he can also look really flat at times. In my view, there are better options on the US Open tennis men’s betting odds board.

US Open Tennis Men’s Prediction

Rafael Nadal and Carlos Alcaraz are in the same draw, so this could set up to be a monster showdown between these two. It wouldn’t be the first or second time that the Spaniards have played each other this year.

Daniil Medvedev can win again, but there is better value to be had on Nadal and Alcaraz.

Spain should have a good time in this tournament, with two very good players having a chance at winning the US Open. The main concern with Nadal is if he’s in the right shape to go on a deep run.

The US Open is not an easy tournament in the heat in New York. With his health concerns this year, do we know if Nadal is going to have the stamina and jump in his step?

TOUGH PREP WORK

Rafa appeared in the Western & Southern Open. If you blinked you missed it, because Nadal lost early with a 6-7, 6-4, 6-3 loss to Borna Coric in the Round of 32. Coric went on to win the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Nadal at full health is a major threat, but Carlos Alcaraz is going to soon win his first Grand Slam and it may come at the US Open. Alcaraz has been dubbed the next Rafa and he’s flashed greatness at times this year.

Alcaraz is 44-9 this year and has four titles to his name going into the US Open. The 19-year-old’s success includes two Masters 1000 titles.

He lost at Wimbledon in the Round of 16 with a four-set loss to Jannik Sinner. Alcaraz bounced back nicely, but lost in the final round in the German Open to Lorenzo Musetti and Croatia Open to Sinner again, both matches in straight sets.

Nadal and Alcaraz have met twice this year, with Rafa winning the first at the Indian Wells Masters, 6-4, 4-6, 6-3, and then Alcaraz responding at the Madrid Open, 6-2, 1-6, 6-3. Alcaraz ultimately won that tournament on home soil.

For the best value on the US Open tennis odds, Alcaraz to win the first Grand Slam of his career at 19 looks like a solid bet.

US Open Women’s Tennis Odds

Iga Swiatek and Simona Halep have leading claims at the WTA US Open. On the women’s side, it’s likely a tournament that sees Swiatek or Halep take home the hardware.

SWIATEK DENIED AT WIMBLEDON

She was the heavy favorite to win the women’s Wimbledon title. However, the odds don’t always work out, as Swiatek had her 37-match winning streak end with a 4-6, 2-6 loss to Alize Cornet in a massive upset in the third round.

Some of the hype has worn off since Swiatek lost. She was described as an unstoppable force before finally losing.

Swiatek hasn’t been at her best since the winning streak, but some regression was expected. This might provide us with unexpected value on Swiatek to win at the US Open.

US Open Women’s Tennis Prediction

Emma Raducanu will be well-liked by the public after winning the US Open last year. The same goes for Elena Rybakina after she won Wimbledon. However, neither look like attractive value bets at +1800.

Raducanu should be +2500 or worse, but she gets by on her name and success from last year. Her current form doesn’t suggest that she’s going to compete with Swiatek and Halep.

Swiatek crashed out of Wimbledon and hasn’t been mentioned much since then. Her insane 37-match winning streak came to an end and we haven’t seen her best effort.

She’s lost three straight tournaments going into the US Open. In her latest loss, Swiatek had a lackluster effort in a 3-6, 4-6 loss to Madison Keys at the Western & Southern Open.

This was after a Round of 16 loss to Beatriz Haddad Maia at the Canadian Open in Toronto, 4-6, 6-3, 5-7. Swiatek has not been herself, but a Grand Slam should get her attention.

Despite failing to put together another big winning streak after losing at Wimbledon, Swiatek is still the most talented woman at the US Open.

As a result of her recent losses, we’re getting better value than we would have otherwise. After being denied at Wimbledon, Swiatek closes out Grand Slam season with a win in New York at the US Open.
