Sportsbook – Men’s French Open Preview

October 23rd, 2020 Sportsbook

Sportsbook – Men’s French Open Preview. They are the top two sportsbook online favorites as both are about even money. No other player is even given any kind of chance to win. Let’s preview the French Open that begins on Sunday.

Rafael Nadal
He has been the master of the French Open with five titles in six appearances.  His overall record at Roland Garros is an amazing 38-1. His only loss came against Robin Soderling in 2009. He avenged that loss by destroying Soderling in the final last year.  Nadal has beaten everyone on clay this year except Djokovic.

Novak Djokovic
He is a perfect 37-0 this year and has already won seven tournaments this year including the Australian Open.  He is 4-0 this year against Nadal including two wins on clay. His sportsbook online odds have dropped so much that he is nearly a co-favorite with Nadal.

Longshots
Roger Federer
When was the last time that Federer was ever considered a longshot in a tennis tournament?  He has to be in the French Open though as the top two look very tough to beat.

David Ferrer
He is ranked 7th in the world and is 15-3 on clay this year.  He won a set against Djokovic in Madrid so he at least has a slim chance.

Nicolas Almagro
You would get a lot more value if you took Almagro as a longshot rather than Federer and your chances would be better. Almagro is 20-5 on clay this season. He has made the quarterfinals in both 2008 and in 2010 so he has an outside chance at big odds at the Sbg global sportsbook.

Thomaz Bellucci
He is ranked 25th in the world but he knows how to play on clay.  He lost to Nadal in the fourth round last year and he actually won a set against Djokovic earlier this year in Madrid.

Let’s face the facts that anything other than a Nadal vs. Djokovic final in the French Open would be a huge surprise in odds at the sportsbook and also a huge letdown. Everyone wants to see these two meet in the final and based on their play this year that is what should happen.
