Betting on the Australian Open 2021

Novak Djokovic is a strong favourite for the 2021 Australian Open with the bookmakers as the big Serbian looks to continue to show his dominance in the men’s game.

Behind him, we have three other players who for the main challengers to the title, Rafael Nadal, Dominic Thiem and Daniil Medvedev. These three are all joint second favourites with many bookmakers, and with everyone else priced up at double figures, the focus for many will be on one of these four names.

Those looking for value and an upset may look towards the like of Alexander Zverev, Andrey Rublev and Stefanos Tsitsipas who can all be classed as lively outsiders who are capable of causing an upset on their day.
