The US Open is the fourth and final Grand Slam major tennis tournament of the year and is a very exciting end to the summer if a player has won titles at the three previous events, setting themselves up for a Grand Slam title.
Preceded by the Australian Open, French Open and Wimbledon, the US Open is a two-week tournament held each year in late August and early September. The 2021 US Open will be held from August 30th to September 12th, 2021 at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, New York.
Established in 1881, the tournament was played on grass courts at the Newport Casino in Rhode Island, and only featured men’s singles and doubles. In 1887, the women’s singles event was added, and in 1889 the women’s doubles event was added. We didn’t see mixed doubles until 1892.
Betting on the US Open can prove to be quite profitable if you are strategic about it and do plenty of research into the players competing. The US Open will provide the opportunity to first monitor how players fared at the other Grand Slam tournaments and qualifiers before making any decisions on how to bet on the US Open.
Much like the other three championships, the US Open consists of five championship events: men’s singles and doubles, women’s singles and doubles, and mixed doubles. All events are held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center, which holds 22 acrylic hardcourts and four show courts for the main events. Hardcourts differ from the grass or clay courts that you’d find at the other tournaments, which is why some players excel in some tournaments and not in others.
The men’s events at the US Open have been there since the tournament’s inception in 1881, first played on grass courts and featured amateur players until the Open Era began in 1968. Men’s singles and doubles were always headliner events, and still are to this day despite the women’s events gaining huge momentum as huge tennis stars have emerged over the last few decades.
The men’s playing formats have changed plenty over the years, as well as the switch from grass courts to clay courts and finally to hardcourts in 1978.
The men’s singles event is played in a best-of-five sets format, which is fairly standard across all the Grand Slam tournaments. Players must win six games to win a set – if the score reaches 6-all they will go to tiebreak games.
The 2021 Men’s singles will bring back some form of normalcy, after the 2020 US Open was a bizarre turn of events with players who chose not to participate due to COVID-19. There were no spectators present and with many big names like Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer withdrawaling – it was a weird and different atmosphere.
The United States holds the record for most US Open titles won in both the Amateur and Open Eras, with 85. Behind them is Australia with 18, which is a pretty significant lead for the United States. There is a three-way tie for most titles won in the US Open with Bill Tilden, William Larned and Richard Sears, all of the USA, tied for seven – and it should be noted all titles were won in the Amateur era.
Dominic Thiem of Austria earned his first title, as well as Austria’s first US Open title at the 2020 Championships and will be looking to defend said title in 2021.

Men’s doubles were also introduced in 1881 and has been contested at the US Open since the inception of the tournament. Men’s doubles at the US Open is contested in a best-of-three format, with six games per se, with a 10-point tiebreak if necessary.
The 2020 US Open featured a big underdog victory for Mate Pavic and Bruno Soares, as the pair entered the tournament unseeded, and claimed victory against No. 8 seeds Wesley Koolhof and Nikola Mektic. This is the first instance of an unseeded team winning the US Open in 20 years.

The women’s events at the US Open Odds have not been a permanent fixture since the beginning of the tournament but weren’t too far behind. The women’s singles event was added in 1887, and the women’s doubles event was added in 1889.
Both events hold a best-of-three format with a best of 12-point tie break.
Since 1887, the Women’s Singles event has been contested at the US Open and has seen only three Grand Slam champions crowned in that time: Steffi Graf (1988), Margaret Court (1970), and Maureen Connolly (1953).
Serena Williams is the only competitor who has come close in the 2000’s with three of the four titles in 2002, where she lost the Australian Open to Jennifer Capriati, and in 2015, losing the US Open to Italy’s Flavia Pennetta.
The United States has the most US Open titles with 92 in both the Amateur and Open eras. No country even comes close to that number, as the next countries in line are Australia and Germany who are tied with 6 over all.
Naomi Osaka won the 2020 Women’s singles title at the US Open and will be looking to defend her title again this year at the 2021 event. She has already won the Australian Open, perhaps she is on her way to a Grand Slam.
Past 10 US Open Winners – Women’s Singles
The Women’s doubles event began in 1889, two years after the first women’s singles event, and we’ve only seen one true Grand Slam title being awarded at the US Open. In 1984, partners Martina Navratilova and Pam Shriver of the United States won all four tournaments, concluding at the 1984 US Open, capturing a title with the same partners.
Martina Hingis won a Grand Slam in 1998, with two partners – Mirjana Lucic at the Australian Open and then Jana Novotna at the remaining three tournaments. Serena and Venus Williams are the only pair to come close to a Grand Slam title in 2009, but failed to win the French Open.
In 2020, Laura Siegemund and Vera Zvonareva, an unseeded team, captured the title at the US Open, beating the reigning champions in the quarterfinals, and beating Nicole Melichar and Xu Yifan in the finals. This was the first time since 2006 that an unseeded team won the US Open.

If you aren’t familiar with tennis betting and how to bet on the US Open Tennis Odds, we can help you get ready for the fourth Grand Slam tournament taking place from August 30th to September 12th 2021. There will be plenty of betting opportunities in the two-week period, so familiarizing yourself with all your options will help your US Open betting strategy.
There are a few popular betting options when it comes to betting on the US Open:
Betting on the moneyline at the US Open is the easiest bet you can place. Even if you have never bet on sports before, you can easily grasp the moneyline wager. You likely will look at a tennis match and pick who you think will win – and that’s all there is to the moneyline bet. You pick the winner of the match outright.
Each player will have sports betting odds associated with how likely they are to win the match, and you just pick which one you think will win. Usually with moneyline wagers, it’s smart to pick strategic underdogs that you believe will win as they have a chance of a great payout.
For example, if you have Naomi Osaka vs Victoria Azarenka in the US Open Championships Odds, the odds may look like this:
What these numbers mean, is that Osaka is the favorite to win the match, and you will have to bet $175 to win $100 if you think she will win. Azarenka is the underdog in this situation, and a $100 wager on her would pay out $138 in winnings. You can bet any amount, it’s just easier to look at American odds in this way.
Moneyline wagers are quite simple, and by betting on a huge longshot at say, +600, and winning could earn you a huge payout. These are the types of underdog moneyline bets people look for at the US Open.
If you’re looking to try out a new betting type and get a little bit more complicated, you should take a look at the spread options available on our sportsbook. US Open Tennis Point spreads are very popular in other sports, in tennis they can be a bit confusing to some, so we want to help you understand them a little better before you start your US Open betting.
Tennis spreads aren’t technically point spreads, they don’t measure points, they measure games within a match. Each match is made up of two to three sets, and each set requires a player to win at least six games to advance to the next set. So you are counting the total number of games played by each player, and the difference between their two totals.
If you see a spread of -3.5/+3.5, this means that the player with the negative number (-3.5) will need to win the game by more than four games, and the underdog (+3.5) can either win the game, or lose by less than 3 games.
This means that Osaka must win the game by more than five games, and Azarenka can either win the game by any amount or lose by less than four games.
Let’s say the final sets were:
This means that Osaka won 17 games, and Azarenka won 14, the bet on Azarenka would cash, as she only lost by three games.
Totals betting is a simple betting option, and can be quite popular depending on the sport you are planning to wager on. You will be given a total for the number of games in the match and you will need to decide whether you think the total number of games for both players will be over or under the sportsbook line. As we mentioned above, each match is three to five sets, depending on if you’re betting on men’s or women’s events, and a player has to win up to six games within a set.
This option is commonly bet on if you aren’t quite familiar enough with the players or you aren’t sure who might win the match.
If we look at the same game as above, with Naomi Osaka having 17 games, and Victoria Azarenka with 14, the total collective games in the total betting odds were set at 29, you would have to bet the over to win the bet. If you bet the under, you would lose your wager as the total number of games in the match was 31.
A very popular betting option when betting on the US Open is to bet on the futures. Futures odds are released months in advance and will fluctuate and change as the event gets closer. The odds will change pretty drastically after each Grand Slam event – but the objective is simple: choose which player you think will win the 2021 US Open outright. It’s like a moneyline, but every player competing is on the board and you are betting on them to win it all.
Betting on a huge US Open underdog could earn you a huge payout, if you’re lucky. The odds will reflect their likelihood of winning the tournament outright, and you are able to sell your wager for a discounted price if you feel like you made a mistake.
You will see an odds board for each championship event, men’s singles will have their own, ladies’ singles will have their own, and so on.
For instance, Novac Djokovic is heavily favored to win the 2021 US Open in the Men’s Singles event, and his odds are currently sitting at +120, which means if you bet on him now to win you would win $120 on a $100 wager.
Roger Federer is currently at +900, which means he’s still got a pretty good chance of winning, but he would need to beat out some tough competition. You would win a whopping $900 on a $100 wager.
These odds can go up to +15000 depending on how unlikely a player is to win the tournament, but usually those ultimate underdogs don’t cash in.
Prop bets are meant to be fun and unique betting opportunities for you to play around with during the US Open. They are unique instances that might occur during a match, or an instance that may or may not happen at the tournament itself. Prop bets are most fun when you’re live betting, weighing your options as you progress through the matches.
Examples of prop bets include a player’s number of aces, or “will an American win the Championship” or “Will ‘Player X’ win a Grand Slam” if that player has been set up to do so by winning the three other tournaments.
Now that you are primed and ready to bet on the 2021 US Open, you can head over to the sportsbook and test out your newfound skills!
Not to be confused with the US Open golf event, the US Open Tennis Championships is the final event in the four Grand Slam tennis championships and the most exciting event of them all as we could see a Grand Slam Champion honored.
The US Open tennis championships are played in late August and early September. The 2021 US Open Tennis Championships will take place from August 30th to September 12th, 2021.
Yes, betting on the US Open Tennis Championships is perfectly legal, you just have to be betting at a legitimate online sportsbook or you can wager at your local sportsbook, but betting online is much more convenient.
The favorite to win the 2021 US Open Tennis Championship in the Men’s Singles event is Novak Djokovic, who usually finds himself at the top of the oddsboard, even though he has not won since 2018.
The favorite to win the 2021 US Open Tennis Championship in the Women’s Singles event is Naomi Osaka, who has come out on top in 2018 and 2020. The 2019 champion Bianca Andreescu is next in line on the oddsboard, but she has been dealing with an injury this past year, which further supports Osaka’s odds as the favorite.
Reading tennis odds is quite simple, it depends on which format you prefer. In the United States, American odds are the most common as you can see how much you would win on a $100 wager just by looking at the plus and minus signs next to the player’s name. For instance a +150 underdog wager would mean you would win $150 on a $100 wager. A -175 favorite wager would mean you would need to bet $175 to win $100.

I always enjoy betting on tennis tournaments, but a lot of sites only give me the option to bet on the bigger tournaments. I come onto BetUS and find a list of tournaments to place bets on, including next year’s Grand Slams. The variety you offer is fantastic for a fan of any sport, which is why I stick with BetUS over any other site.
I love the game of tennis. More than most people for sure. I watch every tournament, not just the grand slam events, so I feel like I know the sport as well as anyone. We are watching some great players right now, even if they’re not as popular as they should be. But for a tennis bettor like me, all I care about is knowing the game and being able to bet on every match. That’s where my favorite sportsbook comes in. Betus is always there for me with live tennis betting on every tournament. I couldn’t have made the winning bets I have without you.
The US Open this year is going to be crazy. Novak going for the Grand Slam! My money is on him to do it. He’s been doing so good this year and I don’t see anyone that can stop him. I see BetUS has him as the favorite already. Live betting tennis is so much fun. I did in during Wimbledon and made a killing. I’m ready to do it again at my favorite grand slam event in New York.
