The Australian Open is always one of the highlights of the global sporting calendar and we can’t wait to get stuck into the maiden Grand Slam of the year. Freebets.com.au has a few tips to make your selections interesting for the tournament. Australian Open odds can provide some brilliant opportunities for contenders out of left field that represent big prices in ourtright markets.
The market can’t separate Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic and they are currently locked in a battle for favouritism at a quote of $2.50. Then there is a significant gap to Stanislas Wawrinka, Rafael Nadal, Milos Raonic, and the legend Roger Federer all at double figure odds.
Betting Tips for the 2017 Aus Open
Best Bet of the Men Singles: Novak Djokovic – You simply can’t ignore Novak’s brilliant dominance at the Australian Open of late. Djokovic has won five of the past six editions of the tournament and his head-to-head record against Andy Murray is second to none. Djokovic finished the 2016 season with the best hold/break percentage on hard courts on the ATP Tour and he beat Murray in Qatar. Even at $2.50 he presents some decent value for favourite backers at these tournaments.
Value Bet of the Men’s Singles: Jo-Wilfried Tsonga – Tsonga is never particularly far away and tends to play out of his skin for these Grand Slam events. His hold/break percentage on hard courts is right up there with the likes of Stan Wawrinka and Milos, but he is around triple the price in the betting! He is a much better player than the current price that is shown.
Best Bet of the Women’s Singles: Serena Williams – She has not had an ideal preparation for the first grand slam of the year, but to be frank she remains one of the best players of all time and on the current WTA Tour. At $3.50 will be a real gift if Serena is able to bounce back to her best which inevitibly ends up being too good for most. 2016 wasn’t her best year, but she still made three Grand Slam finals and her overall record at the Australian Open is a freakishly good 74 wins and 10 losses.
Value Bet of the Women’s Singles: Agnieszka Radwanska – 26 to 1 is the current odds being offered for the world number 3 at this year’s edition of the Australian Open. Radwanska consistently underperforms at Grand Slam events, but this could be the year that she finally breaks through on the big stage and lives up to her ability. She made it to the final four of the Australian Open last year so she could easily go one or two better this year. We at Freebets.com.au thinks this is one of the best value bets all tournament.
