Australian Open Betting Odds
No fans are allowed anymore at the Australian Open since a Circuit Breaker lockdown was announced down under at the Australian Open. Will the quiet in the stands affect how the women play as they begin battle in the quarter-finals? What are the Australian Open betting odds?
Serena Williams is trying to win her 24th Grand Slam. Her last grand slam victory was in 2017 and there have been some questions about her physical health. But, unbelievable defense in the 4th round against Sabalenka shows she is fit.
Although Serena has the power and experience to beat Simona Halep, it is not so clear that Serena is the only woman dominating any longer. Many of the women are equal in talent and skills.
The most recent Williams vs. Halep odds shows Serena as the favorite to win with -137(bet 137 to win 100) and Halep as the underdog at +110(risk 100 to win 110). Halep is seeded no 2 and Serena no 10.
Halep, from Romania, is fast and agile but Serena is looking fit and has the experience and will to win. If Serena can avoid the unforced errors, she looks like the one to beat in this quarterfinals match.
Can She Do It Again?
Naomi Osaka, seeded no. 3, defeated Garbine Muguruza, like Serena Williams and Simone Halep in 3 sets. Osaka trailed 3-5 in the third set and struggled to save two match points but came roaring back. She will challenge Su-Wei Hsieh.
Osaka’s grit and her will to battle through having some predicting she will win the title. In fact, Naomi Osaka remains the big favorite to win her second Australian Open.
Current odds for her quarterfinal match show Osaka at -132 (bet 132 to win 100) and Hsieh Su-Wei +105 (bet 100 to win 105).
Born In The USA
Jennifer Brady advanced to the quarter-finals easily and is scheduled to meet her fellow American, and good friend, Jessica Pegula in her first Australian Open quarter-final. She is ranked no. 24.
Pegula is ranked no.61 in the world. Brady has more experience advancing in a Major and has performed better during these last months. Brady is favored to win this match +181 Pegula, -263 Brady.
In the matchup between Karolina Muchova and Ashleigh Barty, Barty is the favorite to win. I am looking forward to some great matches as we move forward through the 2021 Open in Melbourne. Osaka still remains the favorite to take it all. Tune in.
