Murray’s odds at the time of writing are +6600 – which put simply indicates that the bookmakers believe that he has a 1.49% chance of winning – but 25.44% of all bets placed on the US Open odds market have been in his favor.

The second most-popular choice in that timeframe has been market favorite, Novak Djokovic, with 20.18% of the total share. By comparison, his US Open odds of -150 are demonstrative of a 60% implied chance.
