2016 French Open Betting Tips PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on May 23, 2016 18:00 GMT
The latest major Grand Slam Tournament in the world of tennis is finally set to unfold and all eyes are pointed in the direction of Roland Garros as the action on the clay courts is expected to get very hot very quickly.
Grand Slam tennis tournaments are always a great betting opportunity not just because of the huge amount of wages and the emphasis on excellent live betting, but also because a number of top bookmakers go out of their way to offer up money back specials and a number of different promotions to attract action on these major events.
This year's iteration of the French Open is expected to be no different and with so many bookmakers competing for betting dollar, new players can do very well and get a lot of extra action particularly on the right markets and in the aforementioned live wagering.
Probably goes without saying that Novak Djokovic is the betting favorite heading into this tournament once again. A number of top bookmakers have the Serbian sensation trading as high as a 10/11 price tag however the vast majority are floating him slightly lower at a 4/5 margin.
There is a lot to like about his style of play and you can expect him to make it very deep into the tournament at the very least, there only appears to be a couple real potential Challengers with a reasonable chance of winning the competition and with most of them you can do pretty well if you're looking to wager with a each way bet where you get half the total odds should that player make the final.
