On the Men’s side, Novak Djokovic is the clear and deserved favorite at -120, followed by 2016 Wimbledon Champion Andy Murray at +250. Djokovic had won the first two majors of the year and was looking for the Grand Slam before getting upset by Sam Querrey at Wimbledon, who was a 33:1 underdog.

At William Hill, Djokovic is getting 32% of money wagered to win it, followed by Thiem (14%), Cilic (13%), Del Potro (12%), and Kyrgios (12%). Andy Murray is surprisingly getting just 4% of all money wagered to win the US Open despite being second favorite.

On top of that, Murray has moved from +350 to +250 over the last month due to his gold medal at the Olympics and Djokovic’s early exit there. Roger Federer has withdrawn due to injury, paving the way towards a Djokovic/Murray final. Juan Martin Del Potro nearly upset Murray to win Olympic gold, but his efforts in Brazil have moved him from +5000 to +1600.

On the Women’s side, Serena Williams is of course the favorite but is again listed at plus-money odds to win it. She was also listed at plus-money before Wimbledon but cruised to her 22nd career Grand Slam victory. A number of longshots have been able to reach the finals in majors recently, which always makes for quality hedging opportunities, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see another make a run in the US Open.

At William Hill, Petra Kvitova is getting the most money wagered to win it all with 19%, followed by the field (18%), Kerber (13%), Keys (13%), and Serena (11%).

Monica Puig has made a huge jump from +25000 to +2800 to win the US Open following her gold medal at the Olympics. However, I still personally like Serena at +135 to finish off the year strong with another major victory, especially since Azarenka withdrew due to pregnancy.
