How to bet on US Open: Step by Step

Placing bets could not be simpler; head over to LeoVegas and create an account. Odds will be listed as the tournament grows closer, and remember there is always the option to bet live, provided you are signed into your LeoVegas account.

So, the big question is how to bet on US Open Tennis, and this is a great example of US Open Women’s tennis odds using a match with the most famous sisters of tennis, Venus and Serena Williams.

The odds are Venus Williams at 3.00 and Serena Williams at 1:50, which makes Serena the favourite as her odds are smaller numbers. If you place a C$2 bet on her, you will win C$1, meaning your total return is C$3. Conversely, to get C$3 back on Venus, you only need to place a C$1 as she is considered the underdog in this example.


US Open Betting Markets

Match Betting

A basic match bet is where you place your wager on which player or doubles partnership is going to win a particular match.

Set Betting

Placing a bet on the number of sets a match will have. For example, if you think that both opponents are well-matched, and it would be an easy five-set game, then you could be in the money.

Game Betting

You can bet on various components of a game, including who you think will win, the first player to hit a certain number of points and other features.

Handicap Betting

A bet where you can maximize your chances of making a profit by handicapping, some of the big favourites, open betting odds and giving wider odds.

Over/Under Betting

Here you are betting on the number of sets or games that will be played rather than trying to determine the winner.

Spread betting

Spread betting sees a punter bet on how many a player will win by a number of games. A simple example is that you can make a spread bet and state that Novak Djokovic will win, at least two more games than Rafa Nadal

Outright betting

Making a bid on whom you think the outright player of the tournament will be. For example, if you think Rafa Nadal will win, you can bet on him from the outset, and your payout is going to be a lot higher than a match bet if you win.

US Open Betting Tips

As with any sport, the best betting tip you can ever receive is to know your game, well. At the beginning of the tournament, there will be 128 players across all matches. It doesn’t make any sense to place random bets and understand that just because a player is your favourite, it may not result in a profitable outcome. It’s important that you know the statistics.

This is a hard-court game, so statistics are based on how well each player has previously performed on hard-court surfaces. Factors such as whether they are left, or right-handed players, and their serving style all affect the odds. Most players only excel on one surface; Jimmy Connors is the only player to have won the US Open on all surfaces, grass, clay, and hard court.

Being a top seed does not guarantee a grand slam win. Since 2015. Only 2 top-seeded players have won the US Open. Emma Raducanu is a great example of where a relatively unheard-of player came out of nowhere to take the women’s title.
