Favorite to win the US Open 2022 men's championship

Novak Djokovic (+150)

For yet another Grand Slam, Novak Djokovic is slotted in at the top of the odds board for the US Open. Djokovic will be coming off a Wimbledon championship run, the seventh of his career. Djoker is favored to win his fourth US Open title — and his first since 2018.

However, it's important to note that Djokovic remains unvaccinated and under current regulations, will not be eligible to play in the U.S. unless he's given some form of exemption. Keep your eyes peeled for further updates ahead of the tournament. 

Daniil Medvedev (+260)

The player with the second-highest odds is Medvedev, who will have a fresh set of legs after being forced to sit out of Wimbledon due to circumstances out of his control. Last year's US Open champion will look to repeat, and fight off some tough competition.

Carlos Alcaraz Garfia (+500)

Topping off the Top 3 is the 19-year-old prodigy, who will once again be in the mix for his first Grand Slam title. Garfia's odds originally opened at +450, but have bounced around in the last couple of weeks and now sit at +500.

Favorite to win the 2022 US Open Women's Championship

Iga Swiatek (+225)

Just like on the men's side, the No. 1 ranked player in the world leads the way as Iga Swiatek tops the odds board. At just 21 years of age, Swiatek is already a two-time Grand Slam winner, including capturing yet another French Open Championship this season. Oddsmakers believe this is the year the Polish sensation captures her first US Open title.

Simona Halep (+700)

 Sliding into the No. 2 spot is Simona Halep, who increased her US Open odds significantly after a stellar run to the Wimbledon semifinal. The sixth-ranked player showed she still has plenty left in the tank and will look to go on another big run again.

Naomi Osaka (+900)

Rounding out the Top 3 at +650 is none other than Naomi Osaka, who has captured two of her four Grand Slam titles in this very tournament. Osaka is always a dangerous player to go up against on hard court, so it's no surprise why she's sitting so high on the board.

Previous US Open singles champions

Here are the US Open singles champions for the last 10 years, with Djokovic and Nadal (unsurprisingly) dominating the tournament with a combined six of the past 10 men's titles. On the women's side, there has been a different champion in five of the last six tournaments, and this year is shaping up to again have a new champion come the final Saturday.

Year Men's Champion Women's Champion
2021 Danill Medvedev Emma Raducanu
2020 Dominic Thiem Naomi Osaka
2019 Rafael Nadal Bianca Andreescu
2018 Novak Djokovic Naomi Osaka
2017 Rafael Nadal Sloane Stephens
2016 Stan Wawrinka Angelique Kerber
2015 Novak Djokovic Flavia Pennetta
2014 Marin Cilic Serena Williams
2013 Rafael Nadal Serena Williams
2012 Andy Murray Serena Williams
2011 Novak Djokovic Samantha Stosur

How to bet on US 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.
