French Open 2022: Women’s Odds, Betting Tips & Long Shots

French Open 2022: Women’s Odds, Betting Tips & Long Shots

Poland’s Iga Swiatek is the consensus favorite with every single legal online sportsbook to win the French Open this year. Swiatek is priced at-110 with Pointsbet, DraftKings and Bet365, at -111 with BetMGM, at -120 with Caesars, and at -125 with FanDuel.

It’s not uncommon to see such unanimity at the sports betting exchange where a favorite to win an event is concerned. Quite simply, odds for a favorite are usually closer to “truer odds” than the so-called contenders or longshots at an event. In layman terms, a favorite is a team or individual that is expected to win according to the oddsmakers at sports betting apps.

Those that have followed Swiatek’s meteoric rise to World No.1 this season know exactly why the 20-year-old is getting such widespread nodding approval. 

Swiatek, a French Open champion two years ago at 18, is on an incredible tear – a run of form that hasn’t been seen in the women’s game in decades. She’s won five straight tournaments (two on clay), lost only three matches this season, and takes a 28-match winning streak into Paris this week. 

If there ever was a knockback on the WTA Tour, it’s the unpredictability and lack of consistency among its players. Tennis legend Matina Navratilova dubbed this lack of consistency as the “new normal” in 2018. 

Tennis betting markets have reflected that inconsistency in recent years and especially at the grand slam level, by earmarking a few players as the favorites to win. But that’s not the case this time around. 

Swiatek has opened up a seemingly impassable gulf between herself and the rest, highlighting the serious absence of any real challenger in today’s game. Tennis odds for the rest of the women’s field, beginning with the so-called second favorite to win the tournament, begin in quadruple digits. Thus, making this year’s French Open tennis futures market somewhat unique.

Iga Swiatek

Odds: -110 at Pointsbet

Swiatek is the most dominant player on the WTA Tour right now. She boasts a 37-3 record on the season and comes into Paris having won five titles on the back of a 28-match winning streak. During the clay-court season, Swiatek picked up titles in Stuttgart and Rome. 

No one is playing better than Swiatek right now. Since reaching the Australian Open semis (l. to Danielle Collins) she has gone 29-1. She has lost one set in the last 43. Theirs is no doubt that she is the player to beat.

Ons Jabeur

Odds: +1200 at BetMGM

Ons Jabeur is arguably the second-best player in the women’s game right now and in particular on this surface. She reached the Charleston Open final (l. to Belinda Bencic) and won the Madrid Open (d. Jessica Pegula). What makes Jabeur a tempting bet is the fact that she falls into the second half of the French Open draw, meaning that she could only face Swiatek in the final.

Simona Halep 

Odds: +1400 at bet365

Romania’s Simona Halep is deemed as the next best bet after Swiatek and Jabeur, but falling into the same quarter of the draw as Swiatek has taken the shine off of her chances. Halep is a two-time grand slam champion and a former French Open champion. She has the skills and talent to win this tournament, but her form ahead of this tournament is questionable. 

Amanda Anisimova

Odds: +2800 at Bet365

American rising star Amanda Anisimova is a player to spot in this tournament. She is coming off a quarterfinal appearance in Rome, having beaten Bencic and Collins along the way. What makes the American an intriguing prospect to consider is the fact that she falls into the second half of the draw, thus avoiding Swiatek.

Barbora Krejcikova 

Odds: +4800 at FanDuel

Defending champion Barbora Krejcikova stunned the world last season, coming out of nowhere to win the French Open title. She hasn’t played in several months, which would be either an advantage or disadvantage as she tries to defend her title. One thing is certain, she’s a very crafty clay courter and that makes her a sleeper tennis pick. What’s more, she is in the second half of the draw and her section is favorable. She may well surprise with a deep run at the very least.

Jessica Pegula

Odds: +6600 at Bet365

American Jessica Pegula isn’t a natural clay-court player, but she’s a feisty competitor that has shaken things up this season. That makes her a dangerous floater and a longshot bet to spot. She was a surprise semi-finalist at the Australian Open and, most recently, she was a finalist in Madrid (l. to Jabeur). Pegula falls into the first quarter of the draw, putting her in the path of Swiatek. That’s a big ask.
