Rafel Nadal has the best odds to win the French Open at -120. The King of Clay has dominated at Roland-Garros, winning 13 of the last 16 French Opens — including four in a row.
Next on the French Open odds board are Novak Djokovic (+300) and Dominic Thiem (+600). Djokovic, the No. 1-ranked tennis player in the world, previously won at Roland-Garros in 2016 and is closing on Nadal and Roger Federer's place atop the Grand Slam rankings.
The 26-year-old Thiem finished as runner-up to Nadal in 2019 and 2018 and is currently the fourth-ranked men's tennis player.

How to bet on French Open odds
Tennis betting is most commonly done with moneyline odds for a match. Each player is assigned a moneyline price and bettors can wager on which one they think will win. Sportsbooks also offer futures odds for each tournament, where you can bet on which player will win that specific tournament.
Tennis futures odds usually look like this:
- Player A +600
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $600 if Player A wins the tournament. If it's close to the end of a tournament or one player has been particularly dominant, you might see someone with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds:
- Player B -120
This means that you would need to wager $120 to win $100 on Player B winning the tournament.
