Thursday's US Open Picks: Serena Williams v Victoria Azarenka
We have hit the Semi-Finals in this US Open and there have been a lot of curveballs throughout this tournament, as expected. These curveballs range from Djokovic being disqualified for hitting at a judge, all the way to some +200 and up underdogs upsetting their opponents. There are some awesome matchups ahead of us to finish out this tournament. We have just the Women’s side of things today, while the men face off on Friday.
Both women have been playing exceptional tennis all tournament long, and I feel like either player could win here. With that being said, I’m taking Brady +1.5 sets here at -140. This means that even if Brady loses, as long as she doesn’t get swept 2 sets to 0, you will cash in. I think Brady will play her heart out here in this Semi-Final and make sure she wins at least one set.
PICK:Jennifer Brady +1.5 sets (-140)
Azarenka made me look foolish after betting against her last round. She crushed Mertens in a 2 sets to 0 sweep. However, I’m going against her once again. Serena Williams has the experience over Azarenka here and I’m loving her as a slight underdog at +110. Serena is hardly ever an underdog in a straight up matchup, so I’m taking advantage of these odds. Expect Serena to advance herself into the Finals of yet another tennis major.
PICK:Serena Williams (+110)
