Certainly, there is no doubt that Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer are the most popular choices of gamblers. It follows that “The Big Three” top the Tennis betting odds for the US Open. However, gamblers looking for a good price will be looking elsewhere. Prices on Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer are not cheap. And has been proven in the past a dark horse sleeper can emerge to win a Grand Slam tournament. With that in mind, there are some legitimate upset candidates for the US Open. Let’s take a look at the top underdog candidates.

First among potential upset candidates with the Tennis Betting Odds is Germany’s Alexander Zverev. The 22-year-old is touted as one of the up and coming new stars in the men’s tennis circuit. Zverev is looking for his first Grand Slam title. Now Zverev enters the US Open ranked sixth in the Association of Tennis Professionals. He has a record this year of 30-17 with one title and over $1.76 million in prize money. Zverev impressed with his quarterfinal finish at the French Open.
Juan Martin del Potro
Yet another appealing potential offshore bookmaker value that could make waves is Juan Martin del Potro. Entering US Open action is del Potro’s ranking of 16th in the ATP standings. Keep in mind that del Potro has been ranked as high as third in ATP in August of 2018. So far this year he has posted a record of 8-4 with over $511,000 in prize money. A US Open championship was won by del Potro in 2009.
Commencing with his 2012 US Open title does Andy Murray rate as a marquee brand. Murray also has two Wimbledon titles from 2013 and 2016. Of great concern is that Murray has fallen hard and fast since reaching ATP number one ranking status in 2016. Murray is currently ranked 329th as he has only been able to take part in four matches this year. It follows that much of Murray’s appeal is from his past. Fans and gamblers may be giving him more credit than he currently deserves. Yet he does have the credibility of winning Grand Slam events.
The account of his ATP ranking of fourth does Dominic Thiem merit serious consideration with the Tennis Betting Odds. Thiem has a record this year of 31-12 with over $4.2 million in prize money. The 25-year-old Austrian is still in the quest of his first Grand Slam title. Thiem made the French Open Final in both 2018 and 2019.
