US Open Odds: Andy Murray proves a popular picks
Andy Murray made his long-awaited return to Grand Slam tennis earlier this week and did it in style, coming back from two sets and match point down to triumph over Yoshihito Nishioka.
Since his stunning victory, sports bettors have been clamouring to back the Scot to win the tournament, despite the fact that he remains an outsider with the sportsbooks.
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.
Novak Djokovic defeats Kyle Edmund
Novak Djokovic was in action earlier today, he was made to sweat but managed to beat Kyle Edmund 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-4, 6-2. The World No1's US Open odds are as short as ever this year due to Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer absence. Despite Novak not being the most popular pick in the US Open winners market, the parlay including himself and Serena Williams has been one of the most popular bets for online bettors.
