2023 French Open
May 28th to June 11th, 2023
Stade Roland Garros, Paris, France
The French Open is the first Grand Slam of each year to be played on outdoor clay courts. The 2022 event marked the 126th edition of the historic tournament that has been played at the Stade Roland Garros since 1928.
Last year’s event marked the return to full capacity after COVID-19 restrictions in France interfered with the previous two editions. It was also the first time the French Open featured a super tie break in the last set where the player would win first to ten points. The same rules were applied to the US Open and Wimbledon.
Additionally, 2022 saw players return from Russia and Belarus to Grand Slam action. Players from those countries are still unable to compete under the name or flags of Russia or Belarus due to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
After nearly two weeks of play, the men’s single crown was won by Rafael Nadal for the 14th time in his career. The win gave him 22 total Grand Slam titles and further cemented him as one of the all-time greats. Nadal beat No. 8 seed Casper Rudd in straight sets to extend his record of wins in France and Grand Slam tournaments.
The women’s champion was Iga Świątek, who took her second French Open title after winning in 2020. Świątek took down No. 18 seed Coco Gauf in straight sets and became the youngest winner of multiple majors since Maria Sharapova.
The team of El Salvadorian Marcelo Arévalo and Dutch player Jean-Julien Rojer took home top honors in the men’s doubles tournament over Ivan Dodig and Austin Krajicek. French players Caroline Garcia and Kristina Mladenovic from France took first in women’s doubles, while Ena Shibahara and Wesley Koolhof won mixed doubles.
Fast forwarding to the upcoming 2023 French Open, the current odds suggest the men’s tournament will be tight. The 127th edition of the Grand Slam tournament will pit the best clay-court players in the world squaring off at Roland Garros Stadium. At the time of this writing, the odds at BetUS have Carlos Alaraz and Novak Djokovic atop the odds board at +160. Rafael Nadal is a close third at +250 while Stefanos Tsitsipas is +600.
The odds for the women’s tournament are not nearly as close as the men’s, with Iga Swiatek heavily favored at -120. Simona Halep +800 and Paula Badosa round out the top three to win the 2023 French Open.
There are a few popular betting options that beginners and intermediate sports bettors should understand before starting your 2023 French Open betting.
With five separate events, there will be a variety of moneyline bets available at the French Open. The moneyline is the most simple and easy to understand betting option, especially in tennis.
If you’re looking to place a moneyline bet on the French Open, you are betting on which player you think will win a match.
If you have Nadal versus Djokovic (last year’s finals matchup), and let’s say in this instance we have Nadal favored to win the French Open Men’s Singles, you will see this on the sportsbook:
Rafael Nadal -110
Novak Djokovic +150
We’ve established that Nadal is the favorite going into this match, so that number shows you what you would need to bet to win $100, which is $110. If you think Djokovic will win, the underdog, his +150 odds mean that you would need to wager $100 to win $150.
The point spreads seem complicated, but they’re pretty simple once you get some good practice in: this wager essentially gives the underdog a head start before the match even begins.
A little bit different than other sports, tennis spreads are based on sets within a match. So if Nadal is a -250 favorite in a match, he might have a -5.5 spread, meaning he would need to win six games or more than his opponent to cover the spread.
On the other hand, if he had a +5.5 spread, it didn’t matter if he won or lost the game, but would need to lose by less than five.
Betting the totals is popular in every sport, and you have a very simple job without having to know the players well or predict the winner. All you have to do is to decide whether you think the total number of games in a match will be over or under the set line.
Before the match begins, our oddsmaker will set a line, predicting the total number of games that will be played within a match. If the number is 21 games, you would have to decide whether you think the match will have more or less than 21. If the match has 24 games and you picked the under, your bet would not win.
