Top US Open tennis betting markets

Futures/outrights: The best US Open betting sites, such as those above, run futures markets for several months in advance of the tournament’s August start each year. The most popular of these is the US Open outright betting, where you can put down early money on who will take out the men’s singles and women’s singles titles. These markets usually open up shortly after the previous year’s championships are completed.

Match betting: From the moment the first round draws are announced, online bookmakers will put up head-to-head odds for every match at the United States Open Tennis Championships. Along with the outright markets, these are the most straightforward wagers you can make on Grand Slam tennis. All you have to do is pick which player (or team, in doubles and mixed doubles) will win the match.

US Open handicaps: Another way to bet on US Open results is to take a handicap wager. Here, the bookie effectively gives the underdog a head start by a certain number of games for a set or a match. For example: if Andy Murray has a -2.5 handicap against Nick Kyrgios for the first set, he would have to win it by at least three games; but if you bet on Kyrgios at +2.5, the young Australian would need to do no worse than a two-game loss.

Tennis props and exotics: Match odds and handicap betting are only the beginning. Every US Open singles fixture offers a huge range of prop bets and exotics markets, covering a wide array of possible outcomes that don’t necessarily rely on the result of the match. Popular US Open tennis props include:

– Set betting
– Correct set score
– Total match games
– Total sets played
– First set games over/under
– Games won margin
– Exact games won
– To win the first set
– Player X to win at least one set

Grand Slam main events

The United States National Championship, as it was originally known, was first staged in 1881 at Newport, Rhode Island and featured men’s singles and men’s doubles events. Nowadays there are five senior championships to compete for at Flushing Meadows, all of which are considered part of the elite Grand Slam set of major international tennis tournaments.

– Men’s Singles
– Women’s Singles
– Men’s Doubles
– Women’s Doubles
– Mixed Doubles

List of US Open singles winners

Although the US Open’s illustrious history dates back more than 125 years, most tennis authorities only look back as far as 1968 and the beginning of the Open Era when considering past champions. It was only from that point onwards that professionals were allowed to compete, meaning Grand Slam tournaments in the decades prior did not necessarily feature the strongest possible fields.

The very first US Open Men’s Singles title was won by local hero Arthur Ashe – the first black man to win a Grand Slam event, and after whom the main arena at Flushing Meadows is named. Perennial performers in the men’s draw have included Jimmy Connors, Pete Sampras and Roger Federer, all of whom have claimed five titles.

The US Open Women’s Singles event has been dominated by American talent since the early 1970s. Notable past winners include Chris Evert (six titles), Steffi Graf (five titles), Martina Navratilova (four titles) and Billy Jean King (three titles).
