Serena Williams renews her quest for her record-tying 24th Grand Slam singles title when the year’s final major, the 2019 U.S. Open, begins on Monday in Flushing, N.Y. Williams, 37, has made three Grand Slam finals since returning from maternity leave last year, but lost all three. That includes last year’s U.S. Open, when Naomi Osaka beat her in a 6-2, 6-4 stunner. Now Williams, who retired from the Canada Masters this month due to back spasms, will try to add a seventh U.S. Open singles crown to her resume and tie Margaret Court’s all-time record of 24 major titles. Sportsbooks list Williams as the 5-1 favorite in the latest 2019 U.S. Open odds, followed by reigning Wimbledon champ Simona Halep (15-2), reigning French Open champ Ash Barty (15-2), Osaka (12-1), Madison Keys (16-1), Karolina Pliskova (16-1), Bianca Andreescu (18-1) and Petra Kvitova (18-1). With so many legitimate contenders, you need to see the 2019 U.S. Open picks and predictions from legendary women’s tennis expert Gavin Mair.
An uncanny international women’s tennis guru, Mair called Osaka winning the 2018 U.S. Open at 32-1, part of his mind-boggling two-year streak. Over that period, $100 bettors following Mair’s tournament picks are up more than $21,000. In the U.S. Open alone, $100 bettors are up $4,450.
At this year’s French Open, Mair told readers to back 60-1 long shot Marketa Vondrousova. When she made it all the way to the finals, anyone who had listened to Mair’s advice was able to hedge for big profits.
Now, Mair has analyzed the latest women’s U.S. Open odds 2019 and released his coveted best bets to win. They are all long shots of 16-1 or higher, including an astronomical underdog. He’s only sharing them at SportsLine.
One huge shocker Mair is calling for at U.S. Open 2019: Williams, who has 23 Grand Slam singles title, falls short despite her status as the clear Vegas favorite. There are far better values in the 2019 U.S. Open field than the 5-1 premium you’ll need to pay for her.
Mair believes the six-time U.S. Open champ won’t hold up over the course of the two-week grind. Seeded No. 8, Williams opens the 2019 U.S. Open bracket with a star-studded match versus Maria Sharapova. Williams is 19-2 all-time against Sharapova, but they’ve never met at the U.S. Open. Even assuming Williams wins, Mair doesn’t believe she’ll go all the way.
“Williams is struggling to find her best tennis deep into a tournament,” Mair told SportsLine. “Such incidences occurred in one-sided defeats in last year’s U.S. Open final against Osaka, and against Halep in this year’s Wimbledon final.”
Instead, Mair is high on three long shots on the 2019 U.S. Open odds board, including a young “incredible talent” everyone is dismissing. According to Mair, this overlooked player “will win Grand Slam titles” and her first could come at the U.S. Open 2019. Find out how it is, and get all of Mair’s U.S. Open best bets, over at SportsLine.
So who wins the 2019 U.S. Open? Which massive long shots stun the tennis world? Visit SportsLine now to see Gavin Mair’s best bets to win the U.S. Open, all from the international tennis expert who called Naomi Osaka winning last year’s U.S. Open at 32-1.
