2020 French Open Men’s Tennis Betting

2020 French Open Mens Tennis Betting

When it comes to the French Open there is Rafael Nadal and then everyone else. Rafa has won a record 12 French Open titles and he is the odds-on favorite to win the 2020 French Open. The question you have to ask yourself is whether or not you are willing to bet against Nadal. The current betting odds really only give three players a chance to win. Nadal is the odds-on favorite and then it is Novak Djokovic and Dominic Thiem as the second and third choices in the betting. Let’s look at French Open odds and picks.

It is no surprise that Nadal is the favorite to win this year’s French Open. Nadal is the greatest clay court player in history and he doesn’t lose on clay very often. The concern you might have with backing Nadal is that there will be no fans in attendance. If there is one tennis player who is really urged on by his fan support, especially at Roland Garros, it is Nadal. There is also no value betting Nadal at his current number.

Djokovic and Thiem

If you are willing to go against Nadal then your two obvious choices are Djokovic and Thiem. Djokovic is coming off an incident in New York at the U.S. Open that cost him a potential title so he should be really motivated in France. He also got the monkey off his back by winning this title in 2016. A motivated Djokovic could be worth a strong look in French Open odds.

Another motivated player will be Thiem. He has lost the final to Nadal in each of the last two years. It wasn’t close two years ago when Nadal won in straight sets, but it was more competitive last year, as Thiem split the first two sets before getting crushed in sets three and four. Thiem is coming off a title at the U.S. Open so we know he is in fine form.

Everyone Else

Good luck at finding someone else to contend for the title. All of the other players are listed at double-digit odds. I can’t make any case for taking Tsitsipas, as he couldn’t even win in the prep for this event, losing to Jannik Sinner in Rome. Alexander Zverev has yet to prove he can handle the big stage, as he was beaten by Thiem in New York. Maybe Zverev will eventually be a player you can trust to win a major, but I can’t take him until I see it. Medvedev is completely overvalued, as he loses early every year in the French Open. The one player who is at least a little interesting is Stan Wawrinka. He has had success at Roland Garros in the past, as he won the title in 2015. We haven’t seen much of Wawrinka lately, and it would be preferable to be getting him at odds of better than 30-1, but he is the only longshot worth considering.

2020 French Open Picks

I don’t take many favorites in sports and I am not backing Nadal. He may very well win, but I see no value in backing him at odds-on. Thiem is getting closer to Nadal on clay, but this is a tough turnaround for him after winning the U.S. Open. I think there is more value on Djokovic so I will make him my top pick at the French Open.
