2021 U.S. Open men’s odds, picks, predictions: Elite tennis insider fading Novak Djokovic


When examining the pre-tournament landscape of the 2021 U.S. Open, one may be tempted to focus on the players that will not participate on the men’s side. Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are both unable to play due to injury. Elsewhere, former champions like Stan Wawrinka and 2020 title winner Dominic Thiem also won’t make the trip to New York. With that said, there is a clear appeal when considering Novak Djokovic’s pursuit of history, and plenty of worthy challengers for the crown. 

Djokovic is the pre-tournament betting favorite, with Caesars Sportsbook installing him at -150 (risk $150 to win $100) in the latest 2021 U.S. Open odds. With a bit of a thinner field, that isn’t a surprise, though no other player has better odds than Daniil Medvedev at +400. Elsewhere, 2020 runner-up Alexander Zverev is +550 to win the grand slam title, and Stefanos Tsitsipas is +900. Before making any 2021 U.S. Open picks or tennis predictions, see what renowned tennis handicapper Sean Calvert has to say.

Calvert is the handicapper who called Stan Wawrinka winning the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1, the last Australian title won by someone other than Djokovic or Federer.

In 2019, Calvert took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1. And earlier in 2021, he nailed both of his bets for the Wimbledon men’s singles final: Djokovic to win three sets to one (+275) and Djokovic to win and both players to win a set (+130).

Now, Calvert has broken down the latest U.S. Open 2021 odds and released his coveted best bets to win it all. Head to SportsLine to see them.
