2015 Australian Open Betting Tips PT 1

As the sporting calendar kicks off in another new year, the Australian Open continually ranks as one of the most important big events and this year is no exception with a number of fascinating plot lines in both the women’s and men’s singles competitions. Expect plenty of action and excitement with some wagering markets a bit more open than they have been in past years when heavy odds-on favourites came into the competition with plenty of momentum and support from the punters. 


Novak Djokovic is the understandable favourite here but he’s not trading at a super odds-on price or anything like that. As it currently stands, the bookmakers have him priced out as the even money favourite in the build-up - a price that should hold or even rise a bit as we get closer to the event itself kicking off. 

Djokovic knows a lot about winning and his status as the most powerful tennis player on the planet is not in doubt, though his main corps of challengers will be back here in full force to take him out in the semi finals if they can. 

The biggest bet right now to topple Djokovic is Rafael Nadal, who is trading at a very competitive 11/2 price tag to get the better of his Serbian counterpart. There is every chance that the two wind up facing off in the final here and you can expect Nadal to come back stronger this year than he did last year - with still a lot left to prove in the grand scheme of things. 

Living legend Roger Federer is still in the mix as well, just a shade behind Nadal with a 7/1 price right now floated by most major bookmakers. He proved last year that he could still battle it out into the later stages of major championships and his odds this year rank notably lower than they were last year. 

Andy Murray is also in the mix and will probably enjoy plenty of support during the build-up to the tournament. You can bank him right now at an 8/1 price and that listing will start to drop once he gets into the quarter finals. Watch out if Murray can string together a few really competitive performances in the opening stages of the competition and build up some serious momentum.
