2021 Olympics Odds: Novak Djokovic & Naomi Osaka Favored To Win Tennis Gold

This year’s Olympics will be missing some of the biggest names in tennis. No Rafael Nadal or Roger Federer on the Men’s side. No Sofia Kenin, Serena Williams, Simona Halep, or Bianca Andreescu on the Women’s side. That just means the field may be more wide open than it has been in the past.

Oddsmakers think the race for gold is going to be a fight, bettors not so much. Over the last 7 days, Naomi Osaka has seen 62.5% of bets placed on her. Next best is Ash Barty at 12.5%. It’s surprising to see Osaka get so much love after pulling out of 2 majors this year. Just goes to show how much the bettors believe in her talent on the court.
