The US Open countdown is on for tennis fans and next week the action from Flushing Meadows will begin. The official tournament start date is Monday August 27, so you don’t have long to wait now if you are a tennis fan.

US Open 2018 Betting Odds

When it comes to the men’s draw, Novak Djokovic is the current favourite to win the title at 41/20 with K8 Sports. A win here would give him back to back major titles after his thrilling performance to land the Wimbledon trophy earlier this summer. K8 Sports have the price of 13/4 on Rafael Nadal, who is the second favourite, with veteran Roger Federer third best at 4/1. The betting suggests that the winner is highly likely to come from one of these three players and you certainly wouldn’t bet against it based on current form and past experience in New York.

The women’s tournament has a more open feel to it, but the betting is dominated by two players. The favourite with K8 Sports is Serena Williams, who made the Wimbledon final this summer and she is priced up at 9/2 with them. Second best is Simona Halep, who won the French Open earlier this season and she is 5/1 with the same bookmaker. Plenty of other players behind these two will fancy their chances in what looks to be an open renewal. As ever with major tennis tournaments if there is going to be a shock it is more likely to come in the women’s event, so those at bigger prices should be looked at closely.

US Open 2018 Betting Offers

If you are looking at betting on individual games at the US Open this year the one betting offer you have to take a look at is the Karamboost from Karamba. This is a great accumulator offer that will boost your winnings when you land a winning accumulator with four selections or more. The more selections you put in your bet, the bigger the percentage boost you will receive.

For example, a winning six fold will see you receive your winnings plus an additional bonus of 10%, while if you want to go for the big one, a winning 15-fold bet will give you your huge winnings plus a massive 77% bonus on top, meaning you would get a huge pay day if you bet lands!
