novak djokovic

On this page you find articles on novak djokovic and sports betting in general.


Australian Open 2015, check. Four ATP World Tour Masters from four tournaments entered this season, check. Novak Djokovic is the man to beat at Roland Garros this year, even though he is searching for the first French Open title of his career. The Serbian has posted a hugely impressive 14-1 match record over top ten players this season and with improving stats on the first and second serves, he is going to take some stopping.

His main challengers will be Andy Murray who has surprisingly hit a bit of clay court form this season, but who has never ever before made it to the final of the French Open, and of course, the great clay master himself Rafael Nadal. But with Nadal out of sorts this season, and going into the French Open for the first time in his career without having won a clay court title in Europe ahead of Roland Garros, he is naturally running behind the favouritism of Djokovic.

Another big week on the tennis betting circuits as the men and women are both in Rome for top tier events. Over on the women’s’ side of things, the rapid build up to the French Open continues with top protagonists Serena Williams and Simona Halep looking to build some momentum. Petra Kvitova stunned the field with a big win in Madrid last time out and the Czech is running at 6/1 to make it a double Premier Tier hit with a win in Rome this week.

Kvitova toppled Williams on her way to the win in Madrid, while Maria Sharapova almost got her clay swing going but was ousted before the final by Svetlana Kuznetsova. Kvitova’s win in Madrid has shaken things up because the clay powerhouses of Sharapova, Halep and Williams now have another threat to deal with besides each other.

Williams and Sharapova are on course for a semi final clash in the top half of the draw, with Victoria Azarenka dangerously floating around Shara’s quarter. It leaves a very nice path to the final for Halep whose big challenge may not come until the semi’s where Kvitova could be waiting.

WTA Rome Tennis Betting Odds

Serena Williams 7/4, Simona Halep 4/1, Maria Sharapova 5/1, Petra Kvitova 6/1, Victoria Azarenka 6/1, bar 16/1.

Andy Murray has suddenly come to life with back to back clay court titles. After landing his first career title in Germany recently at a lower tier event, he went out and rocked the tennis world by landing the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 Madrid title. Not many would have seen that coming, many especially would not have seen it coming seeing that it was Rafael Nadal who Murray took down in the final. So can Murray make it a remarkable three in a row on clay after waiting for so long just to win one in his career?

Murray is running as 10/1 third favourite for the ATP Rome title this week, with Novak Djokovic up at as 4/5 favourite, with Rafael Nadal sandwiching them at a quote of 3/1 with Sportingbet. Novak Djokovic is the defending champion and is going for his fourth Rome title, while Nadal is looking for his eighth! Murray has never been to the final of Rome (his best showing a semi final in 2011) while Roger Federer is missing this title from his large trophy cabinet.

The upturn in Murray’s clay fortunes has made things pretty interesting now and while he has a manageable quarter with David Ferrer the top player opposing him, Murray could meet Djokovic in the semi final stage and that is where all bets may be off for Murray, because he hasn’t figured out how to beat the Serbian for a long, long time now.

The ATP Rolex Masters tennis betting this week throws up some more ATP World Tour Masters 1000 action. Andy Murray misses this one because of his wedding over the weekend, and the interesting thing here is that it is the big transition to clay. That of course throws Rafael Nadal back into the limelight after really not having done very much this season. This is really where he start to come to life. He has already won on clay this season though, taking a win in Buenos Aires earlier in the season.

For the longest time this was his tournament, winning the Monte Carlo title eight times on the bounce between 2005 and 2012. He was bettered in the 2013 final by Novak Djokovic though and Nadal goes as a 2/1 quote in the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters outright winner market. That puts him behind the favouritism of 11/8 quote Novak Djokovic which is understandable, as the Serbian has been dominating the major tournaments this season, winning the Australian Open, Indian Wells and Miami.

Djokovic enters the tournament on a 12 match winning streak and is eying up the chance of landing his third straight ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event this season. Going to be pretty tough to stop him. Roger Federer is back in action and he is a four time Monte Carlo finalist, but has surprisingly failed to win the title in his career. The big target for him is winning his eighth different ATP World TOur Masters 1000 title and will be happy enough with the draw as second seed, meaning that he avoids both Nadal and Djokovic who are in the other half of the draw.

Rounding out the top four for this season’s Monte Carlo Rolex Masters is defending champion Stan Wawrinka. He hasn’t been in form at all though, suffering early exits in the previous two ATP World TOur Masters 1000 events this season. Needs a big bounce back performance, the draw is pretty kind to him, but tough to see him going all the way. That is why he is out at a quote of 11/1 with online betting site Bet365 for the event. On current form it should be Djokovic, but because of the move from hard court, Nadal becomes a bigger factor.

Monte Carlo Rolex Masters Odds

Novak Djokovic 11/8, Rafael Nadal 13/8, Roger Federer 5/1, Stan Wawrinka 11/1, Tomas Berdych 25/1, David Ferrer 25/1, 50/1 bar.

There is great coverage on tennis betting throughout the year at online betting site Bet365, who provide customers with free tennis streams and some superb live in-play tennis betting markets. The bookmaker recently added a brand new feature to their sportsbook, a partial cash-out option which allows you to withdraw just part of an active bet, while leaving the rest running until the conclusion.

At the Australian Open and at Indian Wells already this season, we have seen the dominance of Novak Djokovic again. It is little surprise then that he is up as one of the front runners for the French Open 2015 betting, sitting at a market leading quote of 6/4 alongside the great clay master Rafael Nadal.

Djokovic saw off Andy Murray comfortably in the final of the Australian Open, and then again at Indian Wells he brushed the British number one aside. When it came to taking on the great  Swiss star Roger Federer in the final of Indian Wells, it was just routine business as usual for Djokovic who is superb form and looking untouchable by the rest of the field on the ATP this season.

With the best that the game has to offer behind him at the moment, Federer and Murray not being able to touch him, eyes have to look forward to the French Open 2015 where Nadal will come back into play. Rafael Nadal has not been at his best this season, not close to his 100% top level as he makes his way back to full fitness. It has almost looked in part that he has been using the early part of the 2015 appearances as a kind of conditioning exercise to get himself together for the clay court swing of the season.

Rafael Nadal of course has huge history at the French Open, having won there nine times in the last ten years at Roland Garros. That is some feat and crushes Novak Djokovic’s record there, with the Serbian not having won the French Open title in his career. Yet. The two met in last season’s French Open final and it was Rafael Nadal who won through in four sets and if Nadal goes into the French Open even close to his best, then he is going to be pretty hard to stop. Nadal has carded a phenomenal 66-1 match record at the French Open.

The dominance of Djokovic and Nadal in French Open 2015 betting is clear, because only Stan Wawrinka opposed them genuinely at a long, distant quote of 16/1 third favourite. Then you have look out even further in the mid-twenties to find the threats of Andy Murray and Roger Federer. Unless something bizarre happens like at the 2014 Australian Open where Wawrinka won, then the long two weeks of tennis action at Roland Garros may again simply boil down to a duel between Djokovic and Nadal.

French Open 2015 Betting Odds

Rafael Nadal 6/4, Novak Djokovic 6/4, Stan Wawrinka 16/1, Kei Nishikori 16/1, Roger Federer 22/1, Andy Murray 22/1, 33/1 bar

History would suggest that the better value is in backing Nadal to deliver. However, the clay court swing of the season is a long one before the French Open actually arrives. Use those pre-cursor tournaments to really judge form and just how close Nadal is to returning to the peak of his form.

There is an all star line up in what is the first of nine ATP Masters 1000 tournaments this season, as ATP Indian Wells tennis betting serves up some fantastic action. 47 of the world’s top fifty are out in California this week at the event which was voted Tournament of the Year in 2014.

Little surprise about who the top four seeds are for the action, and you aren’t likely going to spend too much time contemplating picking a winner from outside of them, either. Novak Djokovic is up at 11/10 favourite to take the title. He is eyeing up a shot at his fourth Indian Wells title and he heads back to Indian Wells Tennis Garden as the reigning champion after toppling Federer in last season’s showcase match.

There has been a three year gap between each of his Indian Wells titles though (2008, 2011, 2014) so it just goes to show how hard it is to defend the title here. The Serbian in great form though having won the Australian Open and reached the final of Dubai in two of his three outings this season. But it is his defeat to Roger Federer in Dubai recently which makes Indian Wells tennis betting that much more interesting this season.

Roger Federer’s somewhat surprise win over Djokovic in the final of Dubai recently, raised interest in the Swiss star making a charge at Indian Wells, as he goes off as 7/2 second favourite at online bookmaker Bet365 for the win. Federer has won the title at Indian Wells four times before in his career, the most recent coming back in 2012. He is just three wins short of fifty match victories at the event, in a remarkable career.

Rafael Nadal remains the most unlikely to win the title this season of the big four, although like Djokovic he has been crowned Indian Wells champion three times before in his career (2007, 2009 and 2013). The Spaniard will be hoping for a big improvement though to his last outing in 2014 when he bombed against Alexandr Dolgopolov in the third round. Uncertainties over his fitness to stand up for a big tournament at the moment, despite his low ranking clay win in Buenos Aires recently.

Andy Murray is in at 7/1 to win Indian Wells 2015, but he has never managed to get his hands on the ATP World Tour Masters 1000 crown at Indian Wells. His best effort was a runner up spot in 2009, so doesn’t have the history to stand up against the other three big guns. He has been pretty consistent this season following his Australian Open final loss against Djokovic, booking quarter finals in both Rotterdam and Dubai. You would expect a little more from him though.

ATP Indian Wells Odds

Novak Djokovic 11/10, Roger Federer 7/2, Andy Murray 13/2, Rafael Nadal 9/1, 20/1 bar

ATP Indian Wells Prediction

Tough to look much past Djokovic and Federer. They are the form players and the ones with a rich history at Indian Wells. Rafael Nadal is unlikely to be more than a quarter finalist to back with any confident, while Andy Murray has generally failed to impress at the event too.

New customers registering an account at online betting site B3t365 can enjoy up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus, as well as enjoying some great live in-play tennis betting.

New world number three Andy Murray and brother Jamie have both been included in Great Britain‘s Davis Cup squad for the home tie with the USA in Glasgow next month.

Doubles specialist Jamie is in captain Leon Smith’s four-man team for the first time since 2011. The side also includes James Ward – expected to play the singles alongside Andy – and another doubles expert, Dominic Inglot.

 Jamie Murray is currently Team GB’s number one doubles player after a strong start to the season which has seen him win an ATP title in Brisbane with his Australian partner John Peers. The duo also made the final of another ATP event in Rotterdam earlier this month. Inglot, who played against the Americans when GB claimed a famous win against them in San Diego last year, is also recalled. He has made two ATP doubles finals this season and, with a different partner, knocked the likely American doubles pairing for the tie, Mike and Bob Bryan, out of the Australian Open. Colin Fleming, who played in GB’s defeat by Italy in last year’s World Group quarter-finals, is overlooked on this occasion as is former Wimbledon champion Jonny Marray.

Smith’s decision to include two doubles specialists would appear to make it less likely that Andy Murray will be expected to play in both singles and doubles. Two singles victories by Murray would likely appear paramount to GB’s hopes of another victory over the Americans, while Smith will hope Ward can reproduce that form that saw him beat Sam Querrey in San Diego last year.

Rising star Kyle Edmund will also be at the Emirates Arena as first reserve with changes to the team allowed up until the day before the action gets under way but Great Britain don’t figure among the favourites for this year’s Davis Cup, being available at 33/1 with Boylesports, BetVictor, Paddy Power and Stan James. Defending champions Switzerland are out to 14/1 with 888sport and Unibet after news emerged that neither Roger Federer nor Stan Wawrinka would play in their opening match against Belgium (80/1 with bwin). Indeed, Federer won’t play at all for his country in 2015 to concentrate on the Grand Slams but will have to play in at least one match in 2016 if he wants to play in the Olympics in Rio.

France are the new favourites at 3/1 with Boylesports and Titanbet having lost 3-1 in the final to the Swiss last year. Serbia are 4/1 with 888sport, Unibet and Boylesports as Novak Djokovic will play if available. The Czech Republic are also among the front-runners in the betting with bwin’s 7/1 looking an attractive price.

Some top notch ATP Tennis betting to get your teeth into this week, with some big guns in attendance at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship. Punters probably aren’t going to be looking too far past world number one Novak Djokovic who is back for another shot at the title. This is the first time that he has been out since lifting the Australian Open. With a superb track record of four titles in Dubai as it is, and heading back there as reigning champion, Djokovic has a favourable draw as well.

Tomas Berdych is the likeliest opponent that he could run into at the semi final stage, and with just one loss in the last sixteen against the Czech then Djokovic is going to firm favourite to win his half of the draw. As good as Novak Djokovic’s record in Dubai is, it doesn’t stand up to that of Roger Federer’s track record there. Federer has lifted the Dubai title seven times before in his career and while he has already won a title, back in Brisbane at the start of the year, he did fall short at the Australian Open, which may deter punters in a tougher draw than he faced from a poor Brisbane field.

Federer lines up in Andy Murray’s half of the draw, so there is a potential big clash in the final four to come there. Murray’s last appearance in Dubai was back in 2002 when he finished runner up to Federer. Murray’s only action so far was his run to the final at the Australian Open where he was bettered by Djokovic. But he probably should be favoured to win the bottom half of the draw over Federer, but if that happens and he lines up against Djokovic in the final, then the British number one should still be title underdog.

That’s about the depth of the field really, with only Berdych in there as a potential dark horse. Take advantage of a fanatic tennis promotion available at online betting site Paddy Power. Place five or more wagers of £5 or more and Paddy Power will give you a free £5 bet to use for the next day of tennis betting action.

Andy Murray

So it has come down to Andy Murray v Novak Djokovic betting for the final of the Australian Open 2015. This is the third time in the last five editions of the Australian Open now we have seen Novak Djokovic v Andy Murray line up. With the first two having gone the way of the Serbian, will this be the time one swings the way of Andy Murray?

Without question these have been the top two at the tournament in terms of style, power and creativity. On the face of things, having looked at their two games so far in their respective progressions to the final, there shouldn’t be too much to split the two on Sunday, even though online betting site Paddy Power have Murry as 15/8 underdog against the odds on favourites of Djokovic’s 4/9 quote.

Always worth a look at the head to head standings, which stands heavily in favour of Djokovic. From 23 previous match ups, Djokovic has taken a 15-8 lead in the duel. They met four times last season and Djokovic won all of those meetings. Murray has only managed the one victory over Djokovic in their last eight meetings, which was in the Wimbledon 2013 final. But Murray has beaten Djokovic in two Slam finals, after opening his Grand Slam account with a win over Djokovic at the 2012 US Open.

What could swing a slight advantage to Murray is that he got his semi final out of the way first, so could be a little fresher. After dropping the first set of his final four match against Tomas Berdych, Murray pretty much cruised through the match. Not so much for Djokovic in his semi final against reigning champion Stanislas Wawrinka, needing five sets to get past the Swiss man. The Serbian will be targeting his fifth Australian Open title on Sunday.

The level of Djokovic’s play against Wawrinka wasn’t all that high, firing off a lot of unforced errors, and he let himself fall back quite a bit and go on the defensive. But at the end of the day, it was his consistency and greater energy levels which saw him take the deciding set against Wawrinka with ease. Seven time Grand Slam champion Djokovic will have a hard time getting past Murray if he plays as flat as he did against Wawrinka.

For your Novak Djokovic v Andy Murray betting in the Australian Open Final, there is great insurance on the match at online betting site Paddy Power. They will refund losing match bets on your player as a free bet if they win the first set of the match but go on to lose the match. The maximum refund is £100 per customer per match.

The bookmaker is also running a tennis free bet special, where if your place 5 or more bets of £5 or more on tennis in one day and online betting site Paddy Power will give you a free bet of £5 to use the next day.

Novak Djokovic (Serbia)

This is a repeat of last season’s quarter final match up at the Australian Open, when the Swiss underdog Wawrinka pulled off a major shock. Will there be a repeat of that shock when the two meet one stage later in this season’s Australian Open semi final?

Djokovic is naturally a 1/4 shot to win the match at online betting site Paddy Power, with Wawrinka out at 19/5 to pull off a repeat of his Melbourne heroics last season. Wawrinka was in great form as he took on the in-form Kei Nishikori in their quarter final match up in Melbourne, and pretty much just marched straight through to the final four again, as the Japanese star couldn’t get his game going.

Djokovic was equally on cruise control though as he breezed his way effortlessly past eighth seed Milos Raonic, handling the big serve of the Canadian with consummate ease. Djokovic looks pretty hungry to write the wrongs of last season’s early Australian Open exit and the Serbian is running as overwhelming 8/13 favourite at online betting site Paddy Power to win the tournament for the fifth time in his career.

It will take a brave punter to go against him. Djokovic has an overwhelming head to head lead against Wawrinka, a massive 16-3 advantage. Just to put even more supremacy on Djokovic in Australian Open betting here, those sixteen victories for him over Wawrinka has come in the last seventeen meeting, that one anomaly being at last season’s Australian Open. Tough to argue that last season’s history will repeat itself when the two meet against in Melbourne.

Online betting site Paddy Power have a great Australian Open tennis betting promotion for their customers. The popular bookmaker will refund losing match bets on your player as a free bet if they win the first set of the match but go on to lose the match. The maximum free bet refund in this offer is £100 per customer per match.

It is looking unlikely that anyone is going to stop the momentum of world number one Novak Djokovic on his quest to reach the Australian Open final this year. The Serbian is the outright winner market leader in Australian Open betting at a quote of 5/6 with online betting site Betfair. With Roger Federer having already exited the tournament, and second and third favourites Andy Murray and Rafael Nadal on a potential collision course in the bottom half of the draw.

Djokovic goes up against Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller in the fourth round and waiting to meet him in the quater finals, if things go to plan, will be either 12th seed Feliciano Lopez or 8th seed Milos Raonic. If Djokovic is on top of his game, then the Serbian will be expected to work his way on through to the semi final, where he could run into Kei Nishikori, David Ferrer, Guillermo Garcia-Lopez or the man who knocked him out of last season’s Championships, reigning Australian Open title holder Stan Wawrinka.

On any given normal day in the world of tennis action, you would back Djokovic to beat any of them. Djokovic has pretty much been racing through this matches so far in Melbourne and will be banked on to be in the final eight, which looks competitive more than troublesome for the world number one. The fact that Djokovic is such an overwhelming favourite in the outright market at a price of 5/6 in shorter than second favourite Andy Murray 11/2 and Rafael Nadal 7/1, and even potential semi final opponent Stan Wawrinka at 14/1, speaks volumes about the threat Djokovic poses.

Djokovic is a 2/5 quote to reach the final and backing the field to beat him to the title can be taken at a quote of even money at online betting site Betfair. It will take a brave punt to go against Djokovic not taking down the field, and you can take 5/2 on him to meet Murray in the final, while a 3/1 quote for Djokovic to face Nadal in the showcase match.

There is a great tennis promotion available at online betting site Betfair. Place 4 x £5 in-play bets (minimum £5) on any Australian Open match and receive a free in-play bet back from the betting site! New customers registering an account with online betting site Betfair can get a free £50 matched bet as a welcome bonus.
