2016 French Open betting lines scrutinized and tipped.
By: Shane Lambert
Want to square off two players against one another at the 2016 French Open even though the draw isn’t likely to see it happen? You can always bet on a “last longer” proposition with bet365. In looking over the ones that the site offers, I found two that I thought stood out from the rest:
- Madison Keys to outlast Aga Radwanska at EVEN odds
- Kei Nishikori to outlast Stan Wawrinka at +163 (8/5)
With Keys you have to love her form heading into the French Open while you have to hate Radwanska’s. The two players have very different draws as well, with Aga looking at tough matches pretty early and Madison looking at relatively easy early rounders. I find it very hard to picture Keys losing ahead of the Round of 16, but with Radwanska there’s Caroline Garcia to worry about along with Barbora Strycova.
With Kei and Stan, I was surprised to see Kei the underdog based on how the two players played at the Masters Series events. Kei’s a contender while Stan looks much more like an outsider. I’d be gambling on the Japanese player lasting longer in this tournament at 8/5 with the defending champ very much needing to up his game soon in order to just make the quarters.
These bets will have to be made before the Grand Slam starts on Sunday.
