The Australian Open is traditionally the first tennis Grand Slam of the year and we are excited to bring you our Australian Open 2021 betting tips. The event take place at Melbourne Park between the 8th and the 21st of February and it will be the 109th edition of the Australian Open. The tournament was originally due to take place in January but was postponed by three weeks due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of big name players will be participating in the event. The odds for the Australian Open are 1.60 for Novak Djokovic to win the men’s singles and 1.20 for Naomi Osaka to win the women’s singles.
Our 2021 Australian Open preview will look at both the men’s and women’s singles events, with Australian Open betting predictions for both tournaments. We will consider the favourite to win Australia Open 2021 plus outsiders in Australian Open. You also find details of where to watch Australian Open 2021 and where to bet on Australian Open.
So, let us begin the tips and predictions for 2021 Australian Open with the men’s singles.
When considering who will win Australian Open 2021 in the men’s section, it is impossible to ignore Novak Djokovic. The Australian Open 2021 odds have him as the favourite with Bet365 and with good reason. Djokovic is the defending champion and holds the record for the highest number of victories in the men’s singles, currently at 8. The Serb has won each of the last two events and 7 of the last 10, which is an incredible record and is sure the main favourite in Australian Open 2021 men's singles predictions.
Djokovic ended 2020 as the world number one for a record-equalling sixth time and is targeting the men’s record for career Grand Slams this year. Therefore, when predicting the Australian Open 2021 champion for the men’s singles, Djokovic has to be top of the pile.
Moving on in our Australian Open 2021 predictions and we come to Dominic Thiem. The tennis betting odds with Unibet offered a nice value for Thiem to succeed in Melbourne, but he didn't reach quarter-finals. He won just a single title in 2020 but it was the US Open and that success helped to lift the Austrian to third in the world. Thiem has made significant improvements in his hardcourt game and reached the final of the Australian Open last year. Having defeated Nadal in the 2020 Australian Open quarter-final and beat both the Spaniard and Djokovic at the year-end ATP Finals, everything points to another great tournament for Thiem and he leads the way in many Australian Open tennis tips and predictions.
Of course it is a different situation than usual, but at least we're here. We're going to have the chance to play here, and the world is suffering in general. So we can't complain. We only can say thanks to Tennis Australia, to the Australian community, to welcome us and accept us to come, because I know they have been under very strict measures for a lot of months. For us it is good at least that we can keep playing tennis. - Rafael Nadal before the tournament, Daily Mail
Next in our Australian Open betting tips we move to the Australian Open 2021 women’s singles predictions.
2. 2021 Australian Open - Women's Singles Preview
As has often been the case in Grand Slam tennis tournaments recently, when making tips and predictions for 2021 Australian Open, the women’s event is more open than the men’s. Naomi Osaka is the current favourite with the bookmakers to become the Australian Open 2021 champion. She knows what it takes to win this event having done so in 2019 and enjoyed a tremendous 16-2 record in 2020, winning the third major title of her career at the US Open. Despite there being a great deal of uncertainty regarding who will win the women singles at the 2021 Australian Open, Osaka is a good favourite at William Hill.
The defending champion, Sofia Kenin, was one of the contenders with Simona Halep and Serena Williams still being ones too. In terms of a potential outsider, we liked the look of Jennifer Brady, who performed well in 2020, winning plenty of matches.
The 2021 Australian Open will be covered live in the host country by Seven Network. ESPN, beIN Sports, and Fox Sports are some of the other broadcasters around the world. In terms of a Australian Open live stream, you are likely to find 2021 Australian Open free live streaming at some of the world's leading online bookmakers, including Bet365, 1XBET, William Hill, and Unibet.
