The 2015 French Open Betting List at Sportsbook Review has been updated.
Right now players can search for the highest payoff on players in both the men's and women's tournaments.
The side by side betting grids show the best market price available on each player. Whenever an odds change is recorded, the cell flashes red in real-time without requiring a page refresh.
Once the games begin, SBR will be adding match prop bets and comparing the value offered for wagering at each online sportsbook.
Players might wish to further consider the size of the sportsbook bonus being offered by each sports betting website, as while the payout for tennis futures might be inferior, many betting sites choose to amp up their bonuses during major sports events.
Odds on Favorite: Men's field
As of this publication, Novak Djokovic is a -115 favorite to win the French Open. This means a $115 wager returns $100 in profit.
2015 champion Rafael Nadal is an average +230 underdog ($100 wager returns $230) - the reason sportsbooks are paying out more on Nadal might be because he has slipped outside the top 5 in ATP rankings and is coming off a loss to Andy Murray in the Madrid Open.
Andy Murray is an average +800 or 8 to 1 underdog.
Biggest underdog: Men's field
Sportsbooks are giving American John Isner no chance as a $100 wager returns $23,900 in profit. Other big long-shots include Dominic Thiem (+15000), Ernests Gulbis (+9000), and Fabio Fognini (+8000). A strategy some sports bettors employ when wagering big underdogs is to bet a nominal amount and hope that the dog makes it through to the quarters or later, at which point the wager can most times be safely hedged out of.
Odds on Favorite: Women's field
While all bets on the womens field return positive odds, the shortest priced player is Serena Williams at an average market price of +250 or 2.5 to 1.
Simona Halep returns 5X your bet at the odds of 5 to 1.
Maria Sharapova is priced in that same neighborhood, where a $100 bet returns between $450 and $500 depending on the online sportsbook you choose to play with.
Biggest underdog: Women's field
A $100 wager on Svetlana Kuznetsova returns $15,000 in profit. Similarly priced big underdogs in the women's field include Heather Watson (also +15000), Kirsten Flipkens (+10000), Flavia Pennetta (+12500), and Caroline Gracia (+12500).
