5 Bets Worth Considering This Australian Open Final
What an Australian Open Final it promises to be on Sunday night on Rod Laver Arena as Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal battle it out for the 53rd time in their amazing rivalry
It will be world No. 1 vs. world No. 2 for the Australian Open title when Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal take to Rod Laver Arena on Sunday evening.
With not much separating the two in regards to form heading into the finals, we look at 5 markets which could provide some value:
1- Novak Djokovic to win - $1.75* with Unibet
Why: In addition to never losing an Australian Open Final, Novak Djokovic has won six of his last seven ATP Finals against Rafael Nadal. Djokovic also edges the head-to-head 27-25 having won eight of their last 10 encounters
2- A tiebreaker to occur in the match - $1.28* with BetEasy
Why: 5 of the 6 finals that Novak Djokovic has played at Melbourne Park have seen a tiebreaker occur to decide a set with the 1st or the 2nd Sets occurring the most often (2)
3- Djokovic to win the 1st Set 6-3 OR 6-4 - $3.25* with Sportsbet
Why: Novak Djokovic has won the first set by a scoreline of 6-3 in seven of his last nine completed Grand Slam main draw matches.
Why: This game has the hallmarks of another classic. Both men were utterly dominant in their respective semifinals and seem to be a level above anyone else in the world right now, which makes it hard to lean one way or another. With their only clash at Melbourne Park, resulting in a 5-set marathon which has gone down as one of the greatest Aus Open Finals of All-time, we expect this game has the hallmarks of another classic.
5- 5th set tiebreaker be played - $10 with TAB
Why: The last year's Wimbledon final was the last time these two faced off in a Grand Slam. On that day, Djokovic prevailed 6–4, 3–6, 7–6(11–9), 3–6, 10–8, which under the Australian Open new rules would have resulted in a 5th Set Tiebreaker. With nothing much separating both these legends in this encounter, the $10 is definitely an enticing price.
What’s more, if you’re eligible for the offers below you’re in luck. For example, a winning $200 stake on Novak Djokovic to win 3-2 at $6.00* could see you collecting $1000.
Good luck on the punt.
