Huge Move: Sportsbooks Lower Federer to +995 in French Open
Roger Federer was offered at 25 to 1 by online sportsbooks just eleven days ago, but is now priced at an average of about 10 to 1 to win the 2015 French Open.
The shortest price available is the +995 offered at Pinnacle Sportsbook; players can find the most value at Heritage Sports who are offering an industry best +1700 on Federer.
Sportsbook Review announced the French Open betting list at that time which shows the current wagering odds on players to win the men's and women's field at Roland Garros.
The substantial sportsbook line movement was recorded as Federer had a good showing during the events leading up to the French Open, losing to world number one Novak Djokovic in the Rome Final five days ago.
The French Open betting list shows that number one seeded Djokovic is an average price of -120, meaning a $120 bet is required to win $100, though sportsbook players who have done their homework know that he has yet to win a Grand Slam on the red clay of Roland Garros.
Nine time event winner Rafael Nadal is an average market price of 4 to 1; he has fallen significantly in handicappers' power ratings as he has dropped to world number seven for the first time in a decade.
On the women's side of the court, Serena Williams is the betting favorite with the shortest available price at +275. Several sportsbooks offer this exact price, so the quality of each betting sites sportsbook bonus may come into play when assessing where to play.
Maria Sharapova is priced a touch longer by tennis sportsbooks at +445, meaning a $100 wager returns $445 in profit.
