The US Open, the fourth and final tennis Grand Slam of the season has been made just a little bit more interesting now that Novak Djokovic has lost the final of the last two ATP World Tour Masters 1000, going down against Andy Murray in the Rogers Cup and then Roger Federer in Cincinnati. So a little bit of vulnerability there from the World Number One Which will give tennis punters a bit of hope of cashing in on some value in US Open 2015 tennis betting.

It is a big three at the moment in the game, with Rafael Nadal nowhere near Grand Slam winning form at the moment. So that leaves a big three way battle between Djokovic, Murray and Federer but that was supposed to have been the story last season but 100/1 pre-tournament shot Marin Cilic came through to land the title against Kei Nishikori. No, not one one of the big guns made it to the final which was a shocker.

Novak Djokovic – 5/4

You still really can’t argue with the form of Novak Djokovic at the moment. It’s pretty immense because of the last ten tournaments which he has entered, he has made it through to the final of each of them. He was unstoppable over the course of most of the season but including his French Open final defeat against Stan Wawrinka, he has lost three of his last four finals. That’s unheard of from Djokovic and he hasn’t won the US Open since 2011. Not quite at his best right now, but should still be a lock for the final four.

Roger Federer – 5/1

Federer was brilliant last week in Cincinnati. Along with getting the better of Novak Djokovic in the final, the Swiss legend went through the entire tournament without dropping a single set. He can still produce at the highest level as he went past Murray in the semi finals in Cinci too. Belief in another Grand Slam will have been revived by a place in the final of Wimbledon recently. He has been in the final of his last three hard court events and of course is a five time US Open champion.

Andy Murray – 7/2

Murray has been in great nick on the North American hard court swing of the season and should be carrying a lot of confidence through to Flushing Meadows. You never quite know with Murray though and that straight set defeat against Federer in the Cincinnati semi finals may have dented a bit of his confidence after having ended an eight match losing streak against Djokovic in the final of Montreal just the weekend before. Murray has only been in eh final of one Grand Slam since winning Wimbledon 2013 though but has been to at least the semi’s in each of this season’s three slams.

Given Cilic’s win at Flushing Meadows last season where Murray lost out in the quarters and then both Djokovic and Federer bombed in the semi’s it it worth having a look at long priced options as an each way threat in US Open 2015 tennis betting. Kei Nishikori and Stan Wawrinka are the leading contenders at 14/1 and 12/1 respectively with Bet365.

Nishikori who has had a decent month of build up to the tournament is far more likely to get close to reaching the final again that Cilic is, while Wawrinka should be a solid quarter finalists although he was hammered by Djokovic last week. Are we forgetting Rafael Nadal? No. Not forgetting, dismissing. He was pushed out of Cincinnati early and was beaten by Nishikori in Montreal in the last fortnight. Not likely to get close.

The final Slam of the season and so some big betting opportunities. Online betting site Bet365 have their great Tennis Accumulator Bonus offer running where you can earn up to 50% on your acca returns.

Andy Murray’s victory over Novak Djokovic in the final of the Rogers Cup on the weekend finally added a bit of a drama to the season. Djokovic has pretty much dominated the entire season, winning both Wimbledon and the Australian Open as well as four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events. So it was a big upset that he fell against Andy Murray in the final of the Rogers Cup in Montreal, especially as that was the first time since the 2013 final in Montreal against Murray that Djokovic had suffered a loss against the Brit.

So it shakes up betting on the US Open a little bit, but of course nothing drastically. This is the part of the season where Andy Murray should start coming into his own more and more and start to look stronger and stronger. It was a pretty strong start from him and now he has been moved in to a quote of 3/1 with online betting site Bet Victor to win the 2015 US Open title.

it was against Djokovic that Murray won the 2012 US Open Final, the first Grand Slam title of his career. But Murray hasn’t touched a Grand Slam title since winning Wimbledon 2013, a run of eight title-less Grand Slam appearances and just one appearance in the final of one (the 2015 Australian Open). But the win in Montreal has to have done something grand for his confidence and belief that maybe Novak Djokovic (6/5 favourite to win the US Open) isn’t so infallible as he seems.

Men’s US Open 2015 Betting Odds

Novak Djokovic 6/5, Andy Murray 3/1, Roger Federer 7/1, Stan Wawrinka 12/1, Rafael Nadal 12/1, Kei Nishikori 12/1, Marin Cilic 25/1, 33/1 bar

Of course, Djokovic, the world number one is still the one to beat, despite having won the title only once as well. That was back in 2011 and including that win for the Serbian, there has been a different winner in each of the last four editions of the US Open (Djokovic, Murray, Nadal, Cilic). So that does hint at there being the chance of upsets in this one, although Djokovic has been to the final on four of the last five editions of the event (W1 L3). Roger Federer is a 7/1 quote to land the title, with Stan Wawrinka, Rafael Nadal and Kei Nishikori all around the 12/1 mark, with reigning Champion Marin Cilic at 25/1.

Serena Williams, despite her upset against Belinda Benic in the Rogers Cup recently is the one to beat in the women’s draw. No surprise there. She is a six-time US Open Champion over her long career and needs one more to pull clear of Chris Evert’s six titles as well. Williams has won the last three editions of the US Open and has been in the final in five of the last eight editions. With the Australian Open, the French Open and Wimbledon in her pocket, she currently holds all four Grand Slam titles and is looking to complete a clean sweep of every major in 2015.

Women’s US Open 2015 Betting Odds

Serena Williams 6/5, Victoria Azarenka 7/1, Maria Sharapova 9/1, Simona Help 14/1, Belinda Bencic 20/1, Petra Kvitova 14/1, Garbine Muguruza 25/1, Caroline Wozniacki 25/1, 33/1 bar

Hard to find a genuine opposed to Williams. Victoria Azarenka has lost two of the last three finals against Williams and is a 7/1 quote to get her hands on the title at Flushing Meadows, with Maria Sharapova at 9/1. Simona Halep could have a lot of appeal being such a strong hard court player and she goes as big 14/1 each way value in US Open 2015 betting.

Online Betting site Bet Victor have great tennis betting insurance available on accumulator. Place a fivefold or bigger accumulator on any tennis markets with the bookie and if you have only one losing leg in the wager, the Bet Victor will refund your lost stake up to the value of £50.

It is the second week of back to back ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events for men’s tennis betting, as ATP Cincinnati follows straight on from Montreal. Andy Murray finally snapped his losing streak against World NUmber One Novak Djokovic by beating the Serbian in the final of Montreal. That shook things up a bit and offers a hint of excitement among the predictably that Djokovic had laid down in winning the previous four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events he had entered this year.

So now it is straight around to Cincinnati where Murray has been trimmed to a 7/2 price to win there. That puts him as second favourite behind Djokovic in ATP Cincinnati betting, who is up as an 11/10 quote. That was Murray’s fourth title of the year and a positive start in the build up to the US Open of course, which starts on August 31st. It was Murray’s first win over Djokovic since beating the Serbian in the 2013 Montreal final.

Murray and Djokovic would meet again in the final of Cincinnati if they both win through. Djokovic definitely has the easier half of the draw though as Murray, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer are all in the bottom half. Djokovic’s biggest opposer in the top half of the draw is Stan Wawrinka, who beat Djokovic in the final of this year’s French Open. But on the hard court, Djokovic is likely to be far too strong over the Swiss player.

Former ATP Western & Southern Open winner Andy Murray goes as 8/11 favourite to win the third quarter of the draw this time out over 7/2 second favourite Marin Cilic. That means that Federer and Nadal are on a collision course for a quarter final clash down in the fourth quarter, which is a great prospect to look forward too. Federer is 8/11 to win the 4th quarter, with Nadal at 11/4.

Federer is the reigning Cincinnati champion after beating David Ferrer in last season’s showcase match. Federer has won the title six times in her career, Rafael Nadal once and Andy Murray twice. Yes, this is a top tier tournament which Novak Djokovic has never managed to win before so after his defeat against Murray on the weekend in Montreal, punters may well consider laying the World Number One again this week in favour of Murray or Federer coming through from the bottom half of the draw.

ATP Cincinnati Tennis Betting Odds

Novak Djokovic 11/10, Andy Murray 89/2, Roger Federer 11/2, Rafael Nadal 12/1, Stan Wawrinka 16/1, 22/1 bar

There is a great tennis betting bonus available at online bookmaker Bet365. Build yourself a qualifying tennis accumulator with them and if your bet wins, then you will be paid out up to a 50% win bonus for your efforts. This offer applies to winnings on pre-match accumulators of 2 or more selections on To Win Match, First Set Winner and Set Betting markets for Singles and Doubles matches from any Grand Slam, ATP, WTA or Challenger Tour event, as well as Singles and Doubles matches from the Davis Cup, Fed Cup and Hopman Cup.

It may be a tough route to the final of this year’s Roger Cup for Andy Murray, who is a previous winner of the event. Murray could have to get through both Marin Cilic and Kei Nishikori to get a shot at winning the trophy. More likely than not, it will be a match against Novak Djokovic waiting in the final for him. Murray is a 9/2 second favourite quote at online betting site Bet Victor to walk off with the Rogers Cup title.

All of the bigs guns (apart from Roger Federer) are out this week, and Murray could pair up with Cilic in the quarter finals before potentially facing Nishikori (who won his 10th career title on the weekend with a triumph at the Citi Open) or former Rogers Cup titlist Rafael Nadal at the semi final stage. Nadal is hanging at a long 14/1 quote, which may have appeal at an each-way price.

This will be just the first match on hard court since back in march, but he has a decent draw here and is likely to make a big quarter final clash with Kei Nishikori. The Spaniard, who has been nowhere near his best this season is a three time winner of the Rogers Cup, and he holds a 7-0 record over Kei Nishikori in their previous meetings. So that projects him to the semi’s to face Murray.

It’s so hard to find anyone to oppose Novak Djokovic in the top half of the draw. He naturally is a short even money quote for success here, and he has the form and history to back up another victory. He has won the Rogers Cup three times before and two of them were in Montreal (2007, 2011) and he holds a 15-2 match record at the event when it has been held in Toronto (it alternates between Toronto and Montreal each year). He goes into the tournament having won 14 of his last 16 matches in the Rogers Cup all round.

With a massive 25-2 hard court record this season so far, six titles in the bag and wins in each of the other four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events which he has entered (Indian Wells, Miami, Monte Carlo and Rome) this year, he is going to take some stopping. He even holds an 18-2 match record against top ten players this season. one of those losses did come against Stan Wawrinka (in the Roland Garros final) and those two could clash again in the semi finals.

But Wawrinka has a tough quarter with Wimbledon semi finalist Richard Gasquet and home grown talent Milos Raonic banging around in there. Good looking tournament and firm favouritism has to sit on the shoulders of Novak Djokovic given all that he has done this season in ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events. The draw is in his favour and it could just be a case of who will meet him in the showcase match? An Andy Murray/Novak Djokovic wager in the Name The Finalists market is priced at 11/4.

ATP Rogers Cup Odds

Novak Djokovic even money, Andy Murray 9/2, Kei Nishikori 11/1, Stan Wawrinka 12/1, Rafael Nadal 14/1, Milos Raonic 20/1, 33/1 bar

There is tennis accumulator insurance available at online betting site Bet Victor. Place a fivefold or bigger wager on ANY tennis markets and if just one selection lets you down then you will get your lost stake refunded up to the value of £50. Good coverage and all selections must have odds of 1/4 or greater to qualify.

Who gets to beat Novak Djokovic? Defeats for the world number one are few and far between and he carried a whopping 41/3 win/loss record into Wimbledon with this this season, having already claimed the Australian Open, the runner-up spot at the French Open and four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 in his 2015 collection as well. Remarkable stuff from the Serbian and he is on the hunt to produce a repeat of last season’s Wimbledon final success, which came against the Swiss legend Roger Federer.

Djokovic has won the last two meetings between the two players, and two of the three clashes between them this season. Even though he had some shoulder problems in his semi-final victory against Richard Gasquet, the Serbian still managed to get through in straight sets. He is a class above the rest most of the time, and when he is on top of his game no-one can touch him. He took last season’s Wimbledon title against Federer in five sets and if the match is extended to that again, you would lean towards his fitness and stamina to just outlast the class of Federer.

Federer is looking for his eighth Wimbledon title and loves playing at SW19 more than anywhere else. He is still managing to produce tennis which is above and beyond most of the rest and only had to defend one break point (which he did successfully) against Andy Murray in their semi-final clash. His serve is immaculate on point and has only dropped one service game en route to the final this year. But then he did that last year to reach the final and then got broken four times by Djokovic in the Championship match.

New customers opening an account with Paddy Power through the promotional links on this page can back Novak Djokovic at 5/1 to win Wimbledon.

If you were thinking of backing Federer then you can take him instead at an enhanced price of 9/1! Just open a new account, place a FIRST BET up to a maximum of £10 on one of the above selections to win the Men’s Wimbledon Final on Sunday and select the normal odds on the site. If your selection wins, you will be paid in cash based on the normal price on the site and will have the extra amount credited in free bets.

It’s the big Wimbledon showdown on Sunday, the men’s final and sadly for the home support it won’t include Andy Murray. Roger Federer produced one of the top performances of Wimbledon, arguably in his career, in taking down Murray in the semi-final. His laser-like serve was phenomenal and Murray (one of the best returners in the game) couldn’t even get a whiff of a break of it. Seven-time Wimbledon champion Federer is on the brink of more greatness at SW19 and now meets the world number one for the fourth time this season.

Djokovic saw off the challenge of Richard Gasquet in his semi-final match, despite having called for the trainer on the court a couple of times. Still, he moved through in straight sets, but it was a more difficult match against the Frenchman than many had predicted. This is, of course, a repeat of last season’s Wimbledon final which Djokovic took in that epic five-set victory. Djokovic has won two of the three meetings played this season (all ATP Tour finals) but trails the Swiss 19-20 overall in the head to head between them.

From the twelve previous occasions though they have met in Grand Slam matches, the record stands at 6 wins each and they are tied 1-1 in the final of Grand Slam from their previous two meetings in championship matches. They’ve also played each other just twice before on grass and again, there is parity with things standing at 1-1.

You really couldn’t get a closer head to head between the two players but it is Djokovic who goes as an odds-on favourite the price of 4/5 with Federer at 11/10 to set a record of eight Wimbledon titles. If Federer goes on to win then it would snap a three-year Grand Slam title drought for him. One stat that may edge things towards him is that no-one has managed to win back to back Wimbledon titles since he last did it himself back in 2007.

Federer has won 88 of his 89 service games at this year’s Wimbledon, a remarkable stat and that stands alongside his 88 of 89 that he posted on his run to last year’s Wimbledon final. But then he ran into Djokovic who broke him four times in the Championship match. But this is the place where Roger Federer likes to play more than anywhere else and if he brings that serve again, then he is likely to get very close to earning his 18th Grand Slam title.

It’s probably worth pushing over 3.5 sets so you can settle at 8/4 for 4 sets exactly or 21/20 on 5 sets exactly. The two previous meetings at Wimbledon produced a four and five-set encounter. Shortest priced option in the Set Betting is Novak Djokovic 3-1 for a price of 10/3, then comes Federer by the same scoreline at 4/1.

Whoever you are going to back in the Wimbledon final, Paddy Power will beat the industry average for you by a long shot. You can back either Djokovic at 5/1 or Federer at 9/1 to win the match thanks to Paddy Power enhanced odds special. This offer is exclusive to new customers only registering an account with them.

Do that and place a FIRST BET up to a maximum of £10 on either Djokovic or Federer to win to win the Men’s Wimbledon Final on Sunday and select the normal odds on the site. If your selection wins, you will be paid in cash based on the normal price on the site and will have the extra amount credited in free bets. The maximum stake is £10.

It’s looks a bit of foregone conclusion that Novak Djokovic will be in the final of Wimbledon 2015. The Serbian had a pretty easy time in the quarter finals against Croatian Marin Cilic, the world number one winning through in straight sets. That was a pretty solid strong bounce back from Djokovic after he had some major struggles in the quarter finals against Kevin Anderson.

Djokovic dominates the previous head to head meetings with semi final opponent Richard Gasquet, having won eleven and lost just one of the twelve previous coming together. They have already met once this season as well, Djokovic winning in straight sets in the round of sixteen at Roland Garros. This will be the first meeting between the two on grass.

Gasquet is a surprise semi finalist, but took his chances and held his nerve pretty well against French Open champion Stan Wawrinka in the quarter finals. This is the second time in his career of making a Wimbledon semi final. His previous appearance at this stage was back in 2007 where he lost to Roger Federer. The French player is a massive 8/1 underdog with online betting site Bet365, with Djokovic the other way at a hefty 1/14 odds on price.

That means you are better off looking for value in the Set Betting market with Bet365 where a Djokovic 3-1 win is a 3/1 quote and a 3-0 triumph at 4/7.

There are great tennis acca win bonuses to be picked up at Bet365.

Novak Djokovic will be looking to dust himself off after the disappointment of losing the final of the French Open recently. The Serbian has been on fire in the season’s big tournaments and wasn’t expected to slip up at Roland Garros against Stan Wawrinka. But will the Wimbledon field be feeling his backlash to that disappointment?

Andy Murray is second favourite behind Djokovic to land this year’s WImbledon crown and of course will have some big support on his side from the assembled crowds. He hit strong form over the clay swing of the season and with his win at Queens in his Wimbledon build up, he should be able to carry through some pretty good momentum to potentially match his 2013 championship run.

New Coral customers can receive an enhanced price on either Djokovic or Murray to win the Wimbledon, with enhanced odds of 12/1 on Murray, or 8/1 on Djokovic.

You choose which option you want to roll with and this exclusive Coral enhanced odds offer is open to new customers registering an account with them only, by clicking through from our promotional links.

So you can boost your winnings thanks to the promotional odds and there’s no need to worry if your selection doesn’t win the title. If the backed player loses, then you will get a free £20 bet credited to your account as a consolation, so you can’t lose out.

Here is an offer which may be too good to refuse for many. Andy Murray heads back to Wimbledon looking full of confidence and a man on a mission after a great clay court swing of the season. He seems to be peaking at the right time, with a win at Queens as part of his build-up, to make an assault on his second Wimbledon title.

Murray is running at an industry average price of 5/2 second favourite to land the Wimbledon 2015 title. He goes behind outright favourite Novak Djokovic who is an 11/8 quote to walk away with the title. Djokovic, with his win at the Australian Open this year and his place in the final at the French Open, along with his four ATP World Tour Masters 1000 titles he has racked up this year, is justifiable favourite.

Murray avoids Djokovic until the final of Wimbledon if they both win through, and Murray will have the advantage of having home support as well. If you are looking at backing Murray then head over to online bookmaker Paddy Power who are offering enhanced odds of 18/1 on him to win Wimbledon.

That is a huge price on Murray which isn’t going to get topped in the industry, so if you were looking at backing Murray then do so at Paddy Power looks the way to do it. This is a two part enhanced odds because if you were fancying Djokovic to land his third Wimbledon title, then you could back the Serbian at a quote of 10/1 enhanced odds with Paddy Power.

The enhanced odds offer is open exclusively to new customers registering an account with Paddy Power. Open a new account, place a FIRST BET up to a maximum of £10 Place your 1st bet (max bet £10) on either Novak Djokovic or Andy Murray to win Wimbledon before either player’s first round match at the normal price on site. If your chosen selection wins Wimbledon, you will be paid in cash based on the normal price on site and will have the extra amount, bringing the bet up to a the cumulative payout, credited in free bets.

The French Open is still pretty much fresh in the minds of tennis punters and just a couple of weeks following on, here comes Wimbledon, the third slam of the year. British interest will of course be heightened as Andy Murray is trading as second favourite at a price of 11/4 with online betting site Bet365 to go out and win the title at SW19 for the second time in his career. Murray has been seeded third for the tournament, behind top seed Novak Djokovic and second seed Roger Federer.

With Murray running in some good form since the clay swing of the season and in picking up the Queen’s title recently again, fans will be experiencing him to be knocking on the door to success. His big obstacle is Djokovic of course who is 5/4 outright favourite in the Wimbledon 2015 betting market at Bet365. Because of the seeding, Murray would meet either Federer or Djokovic at the semi final stage, depending on which half of the draw the British number one gets landed in. The longer he can avoid Djokovic of course, the better his chances of landing the title for the second time in his career.

Even though Djokovic lost in the final of the French Open to Stan Wawrinka, a result which never looked to be on the cards given the dominance that Djokovic has shown in the top tiered tournaments this season, the Serbian is running as strong favourite for Wimbledon success. Between Murray and Djokovic, they have claimed three of the last four Wimbledon titles, so it is probably not worth looking too much beyond them. Djokovic will have been hurt by that defeat in the final of the French Open too so will probably be even hungrier for success at SW19.

With Rafael Nadal still nowhere near his very best and Stan Wawrinka still a dark horse when it comes to the powerhouses in the game, it may leave punters only really considering the option of Roger Federer. The Swiss legend won his eighth title in Halle recently, he like Murray, is showing some good form on the grass courts. Federer, a seven-time Wimbledon champion is running at a quote of 6/1 to land the title, everyone else in the field heading to London at double figures or more.

One great way to cover your Wimbledon 2015 tennis betting is by enjoying the great services at online betting site Bet365. Not only do they have a vast wealth of live in-play betting markets for the matches at the Grand Slam, but they also are providing live streams for the courts as well, so punters can watch and bet all at once in the same place.

Another major boost to your Wimbledon 2015 tennis betting is the Bet365 Tennis Accumulator. If you land a winning pre-match accumulator on To Win Match, First Set Winner and Set Betting markets for Singles and Doubles matches you can earn yourself up to a  50% win bonus. The more selections there are in your winning accumulator, then the bigger your bonus earned will be. The bonus applies to winnings on pre-match accumulators of 2 or more selections for Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles, Men’s Doubles, Women’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles matches from Grand Slam, ATP, WTA, Challenger Tour, Davis Cup, Fed Cup or Hopman Cup events. Maximum bonus £100,000 or currency equivalent. See Bet365 for full terms and conditions.
