Last year was an awfully long time ago. Most of us can’t remember what we ate for breakfast yesterday; how are we supposed to remember who won the men’s US Open last year?
Fortunately, I’m on the case with all the tennis betting info and US Open odds you need to know.

Daniil Medvedev defeated Novak Djokovic in straight sets, 6-4, 6-4, 6-4, to claim the 2021 Men’s US Open.
The result was a dramatic upset for Medvedev, who entered the match as a +230 underdog.

How to Bet on the 2022 Men’s US Open
Djokovic, a 3-time US Open champion, is currently the betting favorite (+160) to win the 2022 US Open.
Curiously, though, he may not be allowed to play in the tournament at all. The US government is not currently allowing unvaccinated foreign nationals to enter the country, which would make it awfully hard for him to get on the court in Flushing Meadows.
That leaves Medvedev, the reigning champion, as the de facto favorite at +275.
Other notable players worth backing in the men’s US Open odds market: Nick Kyrgios (+600), Dominic Thiem (+2000), Taylor Fritz (+2000) and Alex de Minaur (+5000).
