2024 Australian Open Men’s Tennis Betting

He may be getting up in age but Novak Djokovic remains the king of men’s tennis. The 10-time Australian Open champion has been nearly unbeatable in Melbourne over his career and opened as a negative odds favorite in a quest for his 25th Grand Slam title. A three-time Grand Slam winner last year, Djokovic had his sweep of the sports’ biggest tournaments stopped by second favorite Carlos Alcaraz at Wimbledon in a match that went the distance. Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev are the only other players with shorter than 10/1 odds on the opening betting board.

With Djokovic winning four of the last five AO titles and with nine of his wins coming since 2011, there’s been little room for anyone else to claim the hardware. His longtime rival and 2022 AO champ Rafael Nadal was engineering a comeback and was expected to play in this tournament, however last week in Brisbane Nadal had a relapse of a hip injury that forced him to miss time in 2023 and as a result was forced to withdraw.

The 2024 Australian Open runs from January 14-28 at Melbourne Park in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Since 1987 it has been the first of four Grand Slam tournaments inside the professional tennis season. Visit BookMaker.eu for complete odds and to place your wager.

It’s been an illustrious career for Djokovic having won nearly 84 percent of his singles matches with 98 career wins, including 24 Grand Slam titles. He’s won every major tournament at least three times with a record 10 triumphs in Melbourne. So you really have to ask yourself what more can he do and how motivated is he now that he’s reached his late 30s? Well, it appears as though he’s as motivated as ever thanks in part to his newest rival Carlos Alcaraz. You see, it was Alcaraz who prevented Djokovic from winning all four majors last year taking the title at Wimbledon.

So in 2024 all Djokovic did was raise the bar telling folks he wanted a sweep of the majors as well as the singles gold medal at the Paris Olympics. “I have always the highest ambitions and goals. That’s not going to be different this year,” he said.

When you think of dominance the idea of Djokovic at this tournament comes to mind. If the number of wins isn’t a sign then look at his 89-8 sets record. That’s equally if not more impressive. Behind Djokovic on the odds board are the next three highest ranked players according to the ATP. Alcaraz briefly held down the No. 1 spot last year beating Djokovic in the Wimbledon final. And since that loss Djokovic has also been defeated twice by No. 4 Jannik Sinner. Former world No. 1 and current No. 3 Daniil Medvedev reached the AO finals in consecutive years losing to Djokovic in 2021 and to Nadal in 2022.

I can’t see anyone outside this quartet winning the first Grand Slam of the year, but stranger things have happened. Djokovic, Alcaraz and Medvedev, along with Nadal, have combined to win the last 13 majors. Dominic Thiem at the 2020 U.S. Open was the last player not in this group to win a Grand Slam. And Sinner has yet to win a major or even compete for one. Things will change, they always do, but my money is on one of the favorites.

With two Grand Slam titles in the last two years, including a win over Djokovic at Wimbledon in 2023, Alcaraz is the only player other than Joker to likely claim the title. I probably would’ve faded Djokovic due to his age and career accomplishments, but seeing he’s healthy and willing to work for a goal of securing the ‘Golden Slam’ his motivation can’t be questioned. There’s no value backing him at negative odds which is why a little play with Alcaraz makes sense.
