Men’s tennis betting has sure been a lot more adventurous Down Under, and the Men are now heading into the Semifinals. With the upsets of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, there is suddenly room for the likes of Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to make a “it’s never too late” run for another tennis Grand Slam.
Men’s Tennis Betting – Rafael Nadal
Nadal looked to be in injury free form which is something we have not seen in a long time. He “upset” the #3 seed in the person of the talented Milos Raonic, but really a healthy Nadal at #9 is probably still the better of the two players. He disposed of Raonic in three sets, who to his credit had been battling the flu, and Nadal was clearly emotional to be back at the top of his game.
Nadal will go on to face Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the semis, and should he stay healthy he could find himself in the final of a Grand Slam. Dimitrov is a solid pro and healthier, but has no big tournament wins and might find the spotlight intimidating. Nadal is the -225 favorite to Dimitrov’s +175 dog odds in Men’s tennis betting.
Tennis Betting Odds – Roger Federer
The GOAT of Men’s tennis, you heard me Novak, is still competitive at the ripe old age of 35. He has reached the finals of each Grand Slam tournament a record 5 times, and holds 17 Grand Slam titles. Even now having “fallen” to a world ranking of #17, Federer routinely makes the semis and still has phenomenal game.
Federer will face Swiss compatriot Stan Wawrinka who is no slouch and is currently ranked #4. Wawrinka has won three Grand Slams, including the 2014 Australian Open. He and Federer have had great success in the Davis Cup playing for Switzerland, and they know each other’s games well. Expect this to be a tight contest when it comes to Men’s tennis betting. Wawrinka is the underdog at +130 while Federere is the favorite at -160.
Best Tennis Picks – Rafael Nadal vs. Roger Federer
I may be betting with my heart here, but I think like most tennis fans I would love to see a Nadal Federer 2017 Australian Open Men’s Final. Even though the two greats are on the backhands of their careers, they are longtime rivals and fate is hopefully bringing them together again in a Grand Slam final. So I am backing both, and should they be in the finals together then I will most likely take Federer depending on the line.
