Australian Open Betting Odds
Get to grips with all the Australian open betting odds with BetMGM!
There’s nothing better to kick off the Grand Slam tennis calendar than the best men’s players coming together under the scorching Melbourne sun in an epic battle for the coveted title.
The Australian Open is played on a hard court surface—faster than clay, slower than grass—that favors low, fast bounces that keep rallies relatively short. This means that powerful players with hard serves have an extra edge.
Of course, the tournament takes place early in the year and if you want to take the Australian Open odds and turn them into a successful bet, it’s important to carefully study players’ finishes in the previous season. Keep an eye on the build-up tournaments.
Fitness is a massive factor in this Grand Slam tournament, as the sweltering Australian heat at Melbourne Park has a massive impact on player performance. Players may be fresh into the new year, but this also means that they have to find their feet and get into their best form. This makes it a great tournament to attempt a little underdog betting for the opening few games. The big, strong players in their peak inevitably take the title, but there are some good upsets to take advantage of along the way.
Novak Djokovic is looking to add to his record tally of eight Australian open wins. He’s won four of the last six and is arguably still the favorite to take this competition, but following his disqualification from the US Open, his mentality has been called into question. Of course, Federer, Nadal and Dominic Thiem will always be up to the challenge. It’s going to be interesting to see if they, or anyone else, can dislodge Djokovic from his Australian throne.
