Who Are the Favorites to Win the 2021 US Open?
This is Osaka’s tournament. She not only won the 2020 U.S. Open, but she also took the title in 2018. But although Osaka should be favored, she offers underlay odds. The Japanese superstar hasn’t played like her normal dominating self since an Australian Open victory in February. When Osaka isn’t at her best, either physically or mentally, she tends to lose in an early round.
Barty has won 5 singles titles this year. She’ll head into the U.S. Open after a Western & Southern Open victory in her last tournament played. The odds don’t make Barty an overlay, but she’s worth a much longer look at +550 than Osaka is at +400.
Which Player Offers the Fairest Odds to Win the U.S. Open?
Swiatek, the 2020 French Open winner, has taken a couple of titles this year. But she hasn’t performed well enough in recent tournaments for us to consider a bet. Neither has Simona Halep, who finished her Western & Southern Open Tournament via a walkover loss.
Bianca Andreescu and Garbine Muguruza both have a shot. Andreescu, though, is in bad form and appears to be suffering from the same injury that derailed her in 2020. Muguruza has failed to make it past the third-round in a tournament other than the Olympics since the Miami Open in late March and early April. If we strike Muguruza and Andreescu, we’re left with Aryna Sabalenka.
Sabalenka didn’t have a great Western & Southern Open. But she did make it to the semifinals at Wimbledon and the National Bank Open. If you’re looking for the player to back among the five, consider backing Aryna Sabalenka.
Which Players Between +1400 and +1600 Odds Offering Fair or Overlay Odds to win the 2021 US Open?
Karolina Pliskova and Cori Gauff deserve some attention. Pliskova fell to Jill Teichmann at the Western & Southern Open Semifinals. She also lost in the finals at the National Bank Open and Wimbledon.
Naomi Osaka beat Gauff in the second-round at the Western & Southern Open. Gauff pushed Osaka to three sets. If Gauff can maintain some consistency at the U.S. Open, she should have a chance.
What Two Players at Odds of +2000 to +2500 Can Win the 2021 US Open?
Barbora Krejcikova, the French Open winner, lost to Ashleigh Barty in the Western & Southern Open quarterfinals. If you want to back an underdog, she’s the best play.
Madison Keys has yet to win a title in 2021. Keys made the 2017 U.S. Open Finals, though. If she gets on a roll, Keys is good enough to win her first major title. Consider Keys and Krejcikova the top +2000 to +2500 choices on the board.
