A look at the Emma Raducanu US Open odds clearly announces that Great Britain has an odds-on favourite to lift a Slam title.

This is just remarkable. Emma Raducanu has become the first qualifier to reach the final of the US Open in what has been a stunning two weeks.

With a straight-set win in her semi-final match, Raducanu has a chance to become a Grand Slam champion in just her second Major event.

Raducanu is 8/13 odds-on to do it* (odds recorded at 18:11 GMT on September 10th, 2021 at Bet365).

US Open Final – Raducanu v Fernandez

2021 has clearly been the rise of the teenagers in New York as we have the first all-teenage Grand Slam Final since Martina Hingis met Serena Williams in 1999.

Emma Raducanu’s US Open odds sit at 8/13 odds-on the win for the Brit* (odds recorded at 18:11 GMT on September 10th, 2021 at Bet365).

Remarkably she was around the 400/1 mark pre-tournament to sweep the title. Standing in her way is 19-year old Leylah Fernandez.

The best betting odds for Emma Raducanu vs Leylah Fernandez

Emma Raducanu to win: 12/1 at Bet365
Leylah Fernandez to win: 10/11 at Bet365

Is Fernandez’s run even better than Raducanu?

If you look on paper, at the quality of opposition that Leylah Fernandez has beaten at the US Open, it would be easy to make her favourite.

In that regard, her run has surpassed that of Raducanu at Flushing Meadows.

The real fun for Fernandez started in the Third Round when she knocked out reigning champion Naomi Osaka.

With a victory over another former Grand Slam champion Angelique Kerber in the Fourth Round, there was still a tough road ahead for the young Canadian.

But she continued, eliminating 5th seed Elina Svitolina and then 2nd seed Aryna Sabalenka in the Semi-Finals.

That’s three top-five players that Fernandez has toppled during this staggering Grand Slam run.

Our betting prediction:
Raducanu 2-1

Punters flock to back Raducanu

Of course, now, the justified hype around Emma Raducanu has led to strong backing for her for Saturday’s Final.

One of the remarkable things about Raducanu’s run, including her three qualification matches just to make the main draw, is that she hasn’t dropped a set.

Raducanu has in total, won nine matches during this Grand Slam campaign. That’s more than a Grand Slam-winning run as it is.

But she has one final hurdle to get across.

The Raducanu 2-0 set betting option is as short as 6/4* (odds recorded at 18:11 GMT on September 10th, 2021 at Bet365).

What about Wimbledon?

Emma Raducanu, in just her second Tour-level tournament, was handed an entry to Wimbledon this year.

That was her first experience of a Grand Slam. She reached the Fourth Round there on her debut.

The physical aspects caught up, illness stopping her from completing her Fourth Round match.

Now watching what has unfolded in New York, one can’t help but wonder what might have been for Raducanu at SW19.

But a look ahead sees Raducanu at a quote of 12/1 to win Wimbledon 2022, and she’s 18/1 for the French Open.

Emma Raducanu can be backed currently at a quote of 14/1 to win the Australian Open early next year.
