Rafael Nadal fell to Frances Tiafoe as a -550 favorite during the round of 16 in the 2022 US open.
After having some of the longest odds to win the tournament, Tiafoe currently has +1200 odds.
Frances Tiafoe and Andrey Rublev both have -110 odds to win their quarterfinal matchup.
NEW YORK – The US Open continues with the quarterfinals and the men’s singles odds have shifted after Rafael Nadal was knocked out of the tournament by Frances Tiafoe. Nadal was the fourth pre-tournament favorite and had +550 to win outright and -550 to win the singles match on Monday evening.
The two tennis players also faced off during the 2019 Australian Open, when Nadal knocked Tiafoe out of the tournament. This win shocked legal tennis betting fans and ended Nadal’s 22 straight Grand Slam match victories from this season.
Following Tiafoe’s Shortening Odds
Tiafoe’s odds have shortened to be the outright winner of the 2022 US open and currently sits at +1200. Before his underdog win over Nadal, Tiafoe had +1600 odds to win the tournament. Before the tournament even began, however, Tiafoe had some of the longest odds to win the tournament, over +3000.
Without Nadal in the running, Nick Kyrgios has become the outright favorite and currently has +175 odds. Legal US Open betting offers the most value when placing wagers on Tiafoe before his next match. If he continues his hot streak and beats Andrey Rublev, Tiafoe will move to the semifinals and his outright odds will shorten once again.
Quarterfinal Match Odds
Frances Tiafoe -110
Andrey Rublev -110
Even though they have even odds to win the match, legal sports betting sites have favored Tiafoe for the match through future odds having him +400 odds shorter than Rublev to win the entire tournament.
Rublev has the second longest odds to win the tournament with +1400 odds to win and +600 odds to make the final.
As Tiafoe has already shown off his ability to win as a massive underdog, the American Tennis player’s value is within the future lines. Betting on his +1200 tournament odds or his +450 odds to make the finals offer higher payouts than betting on the quarterfinal match that has him as not the underdog for the first time in the 2022 US Open.
Being professional since 2015, Tiafoe is yet to claim his first Grand Slam tournament title but has gotten closer with the advancement to the quarterfinals.
