2024 U.S. Open Tennis Betting Odds

The final Grand Slam tennis event of the year is the US Open. One of the great characteristics of the US Open is its unpredictability. It is also the tournament in which superstars emerge. Last year, Coco Gauff burst onto the scene as the women’s US Open champion and as a force to be reckoned with for years to come. In 2022, it was Carlos Alcaraz who burst onto the world stage as the men’s winner of the US Open. The hard surface of the US Open helps even the playing field and denies specialists such as Rafael Nadal (French Open - Clay) the dominant advantages they are used to at other venues.

Gambling action at the US Open is massive and intense. Americans, in particular, take great pride in the US Open and bet heavily on it each year. But regardless of where gamblers live, the US Open is a landmark betting event because of its unpredictable nature and handicapping challenge.

On the men’s side, we have had five different winners in the past five years. The women have seen eight different individual winners in the previous nine years. Naomi Osaka (2018, 2020) was the only female to win twice in that span.

The 2023 US Open women's singles final marked the culmination of the US Open's 50th anniversary of equal prize money celebration, commemorating Billie Jean King's pioneering efforts to make the 1973 US Open the first sporting event to pay women and men's competitors equally.

At Arthur Ashe Stadium, fans and gamblers witnessed another historic first: Coco Gauff's maiden Grand Slam title. The 19-year-old became the first American teenager to win the US Open crown since Serena Williams in 1999.

After defeating soon-to-be world No. 1 Aryna Sabalenka, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2, the American collected a $3 million champion's check.

On the court, Gauff had the task of fighting off a red-hot start from Sabalenka, who dictated everything in a one-sided opening set. In the face of Sabalenka's unrivaled power, Gauff turned the tide with her unrelenting court coverage. Whether she was ranging out wide to return perfectly placed serves or scrambling deep to lob back lasered groundstrokes, all those extra balls added up to a big payoff for the American.

Gauff still attacked at times, judiciously picking her spots, but it was her increased depth that keyed the turnaround. Her tactics were perfectly tuned by the final set, during which she hit five winners to just two errors—her steady game piling onto Sabalenka's frustration. The American raced to a 4-0 lead in the third set and closed out the match with a confident love hold. In the final game, she won three 11-ball rallies, with a backhand passing shot on match point sending her tumbling to the concrete in disbelief.

Coco Gauff has been earmarked as the future of women's tennis since she was 15 years old. That future arrived at the US Open in the form of her first Grand Slam championship.

It took an epic comeback against Madison Keys for Sabalenka to reach the final as well, but there was no slow start by the Belarusian this time. Sabalenka opened the match by breaking Gauff in front of a highly partial New York crowd looking for the first American US Open champion since Sloane Stephens in 2017.

Gauff broke Sabalenka back three games later, but that was the last game she'd win in the first set. Sabalenka, one of the hardest hitters on tour, showed a form so overpowering that even Gauff's speed couldn't neutralize her.

That was particularly clear in a wild point as Sabalenka tried to consolidate a break. Gauff covered every area of the court, but that gave Sabalenka the opportunity to hit her harder and harder.

Gauff got the momentum change the crowd was looking for early in the second set, breaking Sabalenka to go up 3-1 and holding serve from there to take the second set. Gauff got steadily more aggressive rather than let Sabalenka pound away at the ball in extended rallies and started winning some truly wild points.

Gauff kept up the pressure in the third set, breaking Sabalenka twice to take a commanding lead. She committed zero unforced errors in the first four games of the set, while Sabalenka committed nine as her composure started fading.

By the end of the match, Gauff was showing the kind of form that seemed impossible to beat. Her speed alone made her a nightmare for opponents to put away, but when combined with the shot-making she showed against Sabalenka, it becomes clear why so much has been expected from her over the past four years.

All of those parts finally came together in New York last September. As long as Gauff can keep them together, there's no limit to what can be expected from her over the next decade-plus.

The results at the US Open have been all over the place in the last decade. Dominance isn't the norm here on the hard courts in Flushing the same way it has been at Wimbledon or the French Open. Hardcourt tennis wears down players since it’s a playing surface with no give, making injury and fatigue a much bigger factor. That’s one of the reasons we haven’t seen a repeat winner on the men’s side since Roger Federer won five straight US Open titles from 2004 to 2008.

Most Career Men's Wins (Open Era)

5 Jimmy Connors 1974, 1976, 1978, 1982, 1983
5 Pete Sampras 1990, 1993, 1995, 1996, 2002
5 Roger Federer 2004-2008
4 Rafael Nadal 2010, 2013, 2017, 2019
4 John McEnroe 1979-1981, 1984
4 Novak Djokovic 2011, 2015, 2018
3 Ivan Lendl 1985-1987

The official record for total US Open victories is seven, belonging to William Larned, Richard Sears, and Bill Tilden. These three men were all winners of this tournament over a century ago when this was still an amateur event, though.

As far as the Open Era is concerned, the record for titles is five. Jimmy Connors was the first to win five, and fellow American Pete Sampras followed him. Roger Federer was the first to win five in a row, but he hasn’t won here since 2008.

4 Martina Navratilova 1983, 1984, 1986, 1987
3* Margaret Court 1969, 1970, 1973
3** Billie Jean King 1971, 1972, 1974
3 Kim Clijsters 2005, 2009, 2010

*Court won the US Open five times, but her championships in 1962 and 1965 were in the amateur era.

**King won the US Open four times, but her championship in 1967 was in the amateur era.

The final Grand Slam event of the year could be the most exciting, too. In 2022, new Blood won this event as Carlos Alcaraz and Iga Swiatek reigned supreme at Flushing Meadows in the Big Apple. Alcaraz is seen as one of the most exciting young prospects in the sport, while Swiatek can finally say she has arrived after winning both the French Open and US Open in 2022. It’s very likely that this isn’t the last title that either Alcaraz or Swiatek wins, so it might be a while before an American wins either event again.
