    As always, depends on what Serena shows up. If she's bombing her serve, she'll win- if she just plays just ok, or worse, Maria has a chance.

    Keys is 10x more dangerous to Serena than Sharapova

    Sharapova is not a threat on the serve and that is the huge difference

    i got to disagree, the way i see it, Serena was pre-priced to be a lesser favorite vs
    Sharapova before the Keys match. Sharapova was going to be about +175 .. now
    the odds have risen, surely not for a lack of performance on her part as she was near
    flawless vs Makarova.
    watched both matches completely last night.
    to the casual, occasional tennis viewer, Keys may be a fresh new top talent and i realize
    she will get better but it seems to me that too much is being hyped up about what she's done
    this tournament.. she's still Madison Keys. she was playing through a bum thigh. Watching the
    second set last night it was obvious the announcers were trying to put a lot of wow's and ooo's in
    there when they didn't really belong. Truth is Serena played only fairly well, not on par with Maria's
    performance. I am not impressed with the fact that Serena 7-6/6-2'd an injured Madison Keys.
    There are at least 30 WTA players that can beat Madison Keys when she is healthy. She caught Kvitova
    on an off night and beating Venus is nothing these days.

    I have Sharapova to win since tournament began, not sure yet how i will hedge, but i will
    because i won't be able to watch either final live. I won't be hedging with Serena ML. perhaps
    with some parlays or Serena 2-1. If I could watch it live I wouldn't even hedge pre-match.

    Pova has said her biggest issue is Serena's power & aggression causing her to overplay. That has led to poor serving which in turn gives her zero shot.

    You can argue that Serena has not shown that same p & a consistently this year.To me, Pova has the serve to stick in it. She's shown it mostly this tournament. She has to stay within herself according to her own words. Question comes down to whether you think she can.

    With all due respect to you and Pova, the biggest problem is that Serena is just a much better athlete/mover than Pova (kind of like Birdshit and Murray last night). Unless Serena makes a bunch of errors, I don't see her losing. I got Serena at -138 before her match yesterday but may add on.

    From what I saw in both semi games , Serena should manage her in Straights

    Dude, Serena has just won the US Open. I do like Williams 2-0 @+115; but not enough to really pound it. Just too much winning history there; and Serena is also intimidating enough not to be bothered by Sharapova's sh.t. The crowd will also be overwhelmingly in favor of Serena. In fact, it is funny how Sharapova generates the biggest advertising revenue, yet she does not enjoy much of a crowd support and that started way before the start of the new Cold War. But then again, I have not seen Sharapova to serve so well and hit the ball so precisely in ages. And I was wrong with my last two leans so you might as well fade me.

    Sharapova always scares from Serena beside her double faults should help Serena wins in Straights

    thats because she's an icy b1tch and comes off arrogant quite often.. always yelling "come on" and grunting during the match. not hard to see why she rubs people the wrong way

    and I'm on serena to win, i rarely take set line bets with women altho i had serena 2 sets in win over madison

    Maria's going to have a new game plan tonight

    Sharapova insisted her confidence going into the final would be “pretty high”. Asked what it was about Williams’s game that has caused her so many problems, Sharapova said: “Her power and her aggressiveness, I think that’s always made me a little bit too aggressive, maybe going for a little bit more than I had to. She’s great at making players hit that shot that you don’t necessarily have to go for.”

    Probably due to Serena's continuing bout with her viral illness and the info that leaks from day to day about missing practice, etc.
