Nadal/Thiem Top French Open Double Chance Picks

More Bang for your Buck with Double Chance

The French Open features many champion players, so why not have two of them on your ticket?

Our online sportsbook features a double chance market for the clay Grand Slam, which enables bettors to have two tournament winner picks on the one ticket.

Leading the charge is the pairing of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, but we’re going slightly outside the favorite for our top pick.

Rafael Nadal or Dominic Thiem

We can’t look past the 13-time champion Rafael Nadal, who has had a mortgage on this tournament.

The 20-time Grand Slam winner has slowed down a little bit as a 34-year-old, but he’s still the raging hot favorite to win. We wouldn’t be backing against him, especially with Roger Federer not playing.

Nadal is the only pure clay court specialist in the tournament. The next best is Dominic Thiem, who why not add them both to your ticket?

Thiem made back-to-back French Open finals in 2018 and 2019. He was upset in the quarters last year to Diego Schwartzman, with Nadal winning in the final against Novak Djokovic.

The Austrian is good enough to put that defeat behind him and former pro Alex Corretja believes he’s Nadal’s biggest threat.

“If Thiem is well, then he is probably the one that Rafa can suffer the most against on clay because of the styles of games,” reported TennisHead.

“He has got a good forehand, a good backhand, a good serve, he doesn’t need to go so far back to hit his backhand. But I still feel it is in Rafa’s hands more than anybody else.”

Tennis betting markets have Nadal and Thiem at -200, which is well worth taking. If any player can get close to Nadal on clay, we believe it’s Dominic Thiem.

Pick: Nadal or Thiem -200

Rafael Nadal or Andrey Rublev

We have talked about the power of Rafael Nadal, but Andrey Rublev is another player capable of knocking him off his perch.

He was a beaten quarterfinalist at the Italian Open, but it was a good hit out in preparation for the main event.

The Russian has yet to make it past the quarterfinal in a Grand Slam, which is surprising. However, he has made the quarterfinal in three of his last four tournaments, which is quality form.

Bettors get -140 odds for either Nadal or Rublev winning, which is good shopping.

Pick: Nadal or Rublev -140

Andrey Rublev or Daniil Medvedev

The Russians are out in force in Paris and although it won’t be easy to get past Nadal and Djokovic, the odds are worth it.

The sportsbook is offering +2500 in double chance markets and we wouldn’t be leaving this option off our ticket.

Medvedez has shown he can compete on the world stage, and although he’s better on hard courts, he shouldn’t be underestimated.

He opened on the fourth line of betting to win the French Open but has since drifted significantly to +2200. It’s a concerning drift, and most likely due to the youngster saying he hates clay, but he won’t be losing on purpose.

Stick with the talented Russians and they should give bettors a good sight.

Pick: Rublev or Medvedev +2500
