Where & How to Bet on the 2023 US Open Tennis Championships

Top tennis betting sites offer a range of wagering options for The US Open while the tournament is underway. However, you can also make futures bets months in advance – winner odds released just before an event begins are called “opening” betting odds.

US Open Tennis Futures Bets

Online sportsbooks provide futures odds for the US Open and the other three majors – Wimbledon, Australian Open, French Open. Popular futures betting markets include choosing the outright winner of a tournament or when a player will exit the competition.

Other futures bets:

  • Stage of Elimination
  • To Reach The Final
  • Name The Finalists
  • Quarter Winners
  • First Time Winner
  • Tournament Specials

Moneyline Bets

Betting on the moneyline is when you choose the winner of a tennis match.

The underdog is represented by positive (+) odds. However, for close matches, the opponent with the lowest negative (-) odds is the underdog. Positive odds tell you how much you could win with a $100 wager, while negative odds show how much you need to bet to secure a potential return of $100.

Tennis Betting Odds Example – Spread, Total and Moneyline (win)
Player Spread Win Total
Roger Federer -2.5 (-150) -235 O22.5 (+110)
Andy Murray +2.5 (+130) +180 U 22.5 (-130)

The moneyline odds outlined in the example above show that if you place a $100 bet on Murray to beat Federer, you will win $180 if he pulls it off, equating to a total payout of $280 ($100 initial wager + $180 – +180 odds – in winnings = $280). But placing a successful $230 bet on Federer to beat Murray will make you $100 and – a total return of $330 ($230 initial stake + $100 – -230 odds – in winnings = $330).

Betting on the Spread

Betting on the spread means wagering on a player to cover a total number of games won. For instance, say Nick Kyrgios (+4.5) was playing Rafael Nadal. In this match, Kyrgios could lose (6-7, 6-7, 4-6) in straight sets and still win the bet because he only lost by four games, not five or more.

Set Spread Bets

Set spreads are similar to regular spread bets (explained above) but simpler to follow. Spreads are usually set at 1.5 — or 2.5 for mismatches. For example, imagine Djokovic is at (-1.5) in his match against Medvedev, and you bet on the set spread. In this case, he would need to win the game in no more than four total sets for you to get a payout.

Over/Under (Total Games) Tennis Bets

Over/under bets let you wager on the length of a match. The over/under line depends on who is playing and how evenly matched the game Vegas oddsmakers expect it to be.

Tennis Prop Bets

Prop bets allow you to place action on specific aspects of a match or a tournament. Popular prop bets include predicting scores of matches or whether a tiebreak will occur. More bizarre US Open prop bets include whether a player will throw their racket on the floor or if a competitor will talk to the audience.

Most prop bets are based on serves in a game. For example, sportsbooks offer over/under options on the number of aces scored by players in their first-round match or the number of double faults committed.

Live US Open Bets

Betting sites provide their customers with various wagering options while a US Open match is underway. Odds for bets change depending on what happens in the matchup, which you can lock down by placing a bet mid-match.
