The Men’s Side
Novak Djokovic (+300) is the defending champion at the French Open and he has been in four of the last five finals at Roland Garros and the last three overall. He will be the 2nd seed in the tournament behind world #1 Andy Murray (+900), who he beat in the final last year at the French Open. 3rd seed Stan Wawrinka (+1200) can win it all or can flame out in the first round and all eyes will likely be on the 4th seed Rafael Nadal (-125), who has the best odds to win at Bet365. He has nine titles at Roland Garros and has never lost in a final even though he has not hoisted the trophy at Roland Garros since 2014.
Federer is out and one player to watch may be the world’s #7 in Dominic Thiem (+900), who has had a great clay court season and he has beaten Murray and Nadal this season. He was smoked by Djokovic in the quarterfinals at the French last season, but in a wide open event he may break through. Alexander Zverev (+1600) is a young upstart with decent odds and after him, no player has betting odds better than +3300.
Will the Joker come through again? Will Nadal will his 10th title? Will another player shock the tennis elite at Roland Garros? We shall see and for all the betting and streaming action head to Bet365.com!
The Woman’s Side
The news that Williams will not play was not the only big news for the French Open, but reinstated and former French Open champion Maria Sharapova was denied a wild card because of her doping suspension. Garbiñe Muguruza (+1000) is the defending French Open champion after taking down Williams in last year’s final where she and Serena were the only top 20 seeds to make the semifinals. Muguruza has been inconsistent on the season, but clay is her best surface and she has the 3rd best odds at Bet365.
While Angelique Kerber (+1600) and Karolina Pliskova (+1600) are the higher ranked players overall Simona Halep (+333) is being talked about a lot since she has had a very hot clay season including winning at Madrid. She will be the #1 player in the world if she can win at Roland Garros and she was a 2014 French Open finalist. Still, she has never won a Major and this may be her year and Bet355.com has her with the best odds on the women’s side.
Another player to watch is the world #6 in Elina Svitolina (+700), who beat Halep for her 4th title of the season in Rome and is 6-2 against top 10 players. Her best showing at Roland Garros was the quarterfinals in 2015, but the young Ukranian has had a great season and will be a force to reckon with at the French Open.
From streaming to betting Bet365 has the French Open covered, and then some, so the clay of Roland Garros is not the only place to get in on the tennis action. Even with Williams and King Roger out of the French Open the 2nd major is still HUGE and the clay will be hot in Paris from May 28th to June 11th.
