2021 US Open betting guide: Odds on Novak Djokovic to win without dropping a set, outsiders and more

Tennis Betting
Novak Djokovic powers on

Novak Djokovic is the odds-on favourite to win the final major of the year and complete his Calendar Grand Slam, but our US Open betting guide has plenty of value for money tips.

World No 1 Djokovic is gunning for a fourth title at Flushing Meadows which would not only see him win all four Grand Slams in 2021, but he would also become the outright record holder for most majors on 21 as he would move ahead of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal.

Here is Tennis365’s US Open betting guide to the outsiders, the potential finalists and more with Planet Sport Bet.

NOVAK DJOKOVIC TO WITHOUT LOSING A SET

Djokovic 12/1

The world No 1 is the clear-cut favourite to win in New York following his successes at the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon this year.

His odds are 8/11 to win the event so we will give you something spicier as Planet Sport Bet has him 12/1 to win the 2021 US Open without dropping a set.

He dropped only two sets en route to glory at Wimbledon so it’s not too far-fetched.

Wining a major without losing a set has been done in this generation by Roger Federer (2007 Australian Open and 2017 Wimbledon) and Rafael Nadal (2008, 2010, 2017, 2020 French Open).

THE REST AFTER DJOKOVIC

Daniil Medvedev 15/4, Alexander Zverev 11/2, Stefanos Tsitsipas 15/2

Medvedev, Zverev and Tsitsipas have all had a taste of playing in a Grand Slam final, but all three finished runner-up.

Should Djokovic fall along the way, then one of these men is likely to hold aloft the US Open trophy come September 12.

WHAT ABOUT THE OUTSIDERS?

Andrey Rublev 28/1, Jannik Sinner 28/1, Matteo Berrettini

Yes, we know anything can happen in sport, but the chances are of one of Rublev, Sinner and Berrettini walking away with the title a pretty remote.

However, it is our duty to inform you about their odds. Job done!

Berrettini finds himself in the same quarter as Djokovic while Sinner could face Zverev in the quarter-final and Rublev will have to get past Tsitsipas.

NAME THE FINALISTS

Alexander Zverev-Daniil Medvedev 11/1

Zverev defeated Djokovic in the Tokyo Olympics semi-final and he is projected to meet the world No 1 in the last four at Flushing Meadows. Second seed Medvedev, meanwhile, is likely to face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the semi-final.

An Alexander Zverev-Stefanos Tsitsipas final is 18/1, Novak Djokovic-Stefanos Tsitsipas 9/2 and Novak Djokovic-Daniil Medvedev 5/2.

ANDY MURRAY TO TAKE A SET OFF STEFANOS TSITSIPAS?

Andy Murray 3/1

The first-round draw threw up a tasty Stefanos Tsitsipas-Andy Murray encounter and, of course the third-seeded Greek is the overwhelming favourite to win the match.

Betting on Murray is likely to be money down the drain, but you could put a few bucks on the three-time Grand Slam winner taking one set with Tsitsipas winning a four-setter.
