Australian Open Odds & Analysis

The Australian Open, marking the commencement of the Grand Slam season for both the ATP and WTA, typically takes place in January. The upcoming 2024 edition represents the 112th iteration of the tournament and the 56th in the Open Era.

As the inaugural major event of the year, it will witness players engaging in singles, doubles, and mixed matches.

In a groundbreaking move, the Australian Open 2024 is set to commence on a Sunday, transforming into a 15-day event for the first time.

This adjustment is a response to data indicating extended match durations, aiming to ease the strain of late-night conclusions for both players and fans.

2023 Australian Open Highlights

Men’s Singles Draw

Novak Djokovic won his ninth Australian Open title, dropping only one set over three matches.

Many of Djokovic’s closest rivals exited the competition, making him the heavy favorite to win.

Three unseeded American players, Ben Shelton, J.J. Wolf, and Tommy Paul, advanced to the round of 16 and quarterfinals, making history for American men’s tennis.

Women’s Singles Draw

Iga Swiatek was dominant and her progression to the final looked certain as Djokovic but it was Aryna Sabalenka who defeated Elena Rybakina in the final, 4–6, 6–3, 6–4 to win the women’s singles tennis title.

Other Highlights

The tournament provided intriguing storylines, including the return of Djokovic one year after his deportation debacle, as he looked to match Rafael Nadal’s record of 22 grand slam titles.

Jessica Pegula played a key role in Team USA’s victory in the inaugural mixed-gender team event, the United Cup and her strong start to the year made her a contender for a first grand slam title.

Overall, the tournament was exciting and provided some unexpected results, particularly with the success of the American men’s players. Djokovic’s continued dominance at the Australian Open was also a major storyline.

Bet on the Australian Open 2024

Learn How to Bet on the Australian Open

The 2024 Australian Open will be here before you know it, and so will the Australian Open sports betting opportunities. The Australian Open is played in late December and early January each year, close to the Christmas holiday which can tend to be scrutinized by the players.

First, let’s look at how to bet on the 2024 Australian Open, and go over a few of the popular betting types and options available.

Australian Open Moneyline Betting

The moneyline wager is the most simple bet you can place at the Australian Open. The tournament consists of singles and doubles and allows for plenty of betting opportunities during the event.

All you have to do for a moneyline wager is bet is choose which player will win the match. It’s as simple as that!

If you have Djokovic vs Medvedev playing each other, and we like Djokovic to win the Men’s Singles category, you might see odds that look like this:

Novak Djokovic -110
Danill Medvedev +200

In this instance, Djokovic is the favorite, and Medvedev is the underdog. Based on the odds, you can win $100 on a $110 wager on Djokovic, or if you liked Medvedev, a $100 wager on him would pay out $200 plus your initial stake.

Australian Open Spread Betting

Point spreads are another great option for betting on tennis and the Australian Open. It provides a bit of margin for error, as you don’t have to pick the outright winner of the match, but you are still betting on a certain outcome to occur. Our oddsmakers will set the lines and decide a certain point spread – but with tennis, it’s a little bit different: you’re betting on the sets within a match.

If the spread is set at 2.5, that means you would be betting on how many sets a player will win. So, if Djokovic is favored and the spread is 2.5, he will need to win the match by three sets for that bet to cash. In the case of the underdog, Medvedev, he will need to win the match or lose by less than two sets.

Australian Open Totals Betting

If you aren’t overly familiar with the players in the match, or if you are new to betting on tennis, totals are great options as it’s another one where you don’t have to actually predict the winner of the match or by how much they may win.

Betting the totals at the Australian Open means you are betting on the total number of games within the match. Our oddsmakers will set a line based on how long the game is predicted to last, and you will decide if you think the number of games will be over or under the oddsmaker’s line.

If the line is set at 16, you will need to decide if the game will be less than 15 games for the under or more than 17 for the over. It’s quite simple!

Australian Open Prop Betting

The Australian Open will have plenty of prop bets available, including player props, country props, and fun instances that might occur in the tournament. You can find some of the types above, including moneyline or totals options as prop bets. You could bet on an over/under on how many points a player might score during the duration of the tournament, or how many service breaks or aces during the Australian Open.

Australian Open Futures

Futures are wagers that you will place that will happen weeks or months in advance. You can bet on the winner of the 2024 Australian Open before the event starts, and you could take advantage of some great odds where you could win some great money if you correctly predict who will win the 2024 Australian Open.

Once we know the competitors who are in the tournament, odds will be released and you can bet on the winner of each category – men’s singles, women’s singles, men’s doubles, women’s doubles, and mixed doubles.

As soon as the 2024 Australian Open odds are available, we will post them and you can start putting this new betting knowledge to good use!
