Sportsbooks adjust French Open betting lines as Grand Slam nears
The French Open is just eight days away and sportsbooks are adjusting their lines accordingly.
Sportsbook Review has a French Open betting directory which lists the best sports betting industry pricing and player payoffs.
The sportsbooks have set world number one Novak Djokovic as an average -115 favorite, meaning a $115 wager is needed to win $100.
French Open legend Rafael Nadal is priced longer due to his falling outside of the top 5 for the first time in a decade; the Spaniard is offered at an average payoff of +270, so $100 returns $270.
A long shot bet some sports bettors might fancy is all-time Grand Slam leader Roger Federer at the odds of +2500 or 25 to 1; though Federer is removed from his prime, sportsbooks have been taken to the cleaners by players on Federer's in Grand Slams before.
On the women's side, Serena Williams is listed at an average price of +250. The high end is +275 per the French Open betting directory, highlighting the importance of line shopping for the best number available.
Simona Halep and Maria Sharapova are next in-line at the average betting odds of 4 to 1.
