33% of bettors think Iga Swiatek will win the Australian Open

The Australian Open 2023 is the 111th edition of the tournament, the 54th in the Open Era, and the first Grand Slam of the year.  So, when January rolls around all eyes of tennis fans worldwide are on hot and humid Melbourne.


BetUS oddsmakers seem to agree with bettors about World No. Iga Swiatek being the next Australian Open champion. Based on a report released by BetUS on Thursday, 33.33% of the wagers placed and 32.22% of the dollar volume have been bet on the Polish tennis star, currently set at 3/2, or an implied probability to win of a 40%. 

“Swiatek easily won her first two matches here, and the road for the 21-year-old to win her fourth major and first Australian Open gave her a bigger advantage with the upset of the 2-seed Ons Jabeur,” says Barry Barger, BetUS senior analyst. “The public is not as high on Swiatek as maybe they should be and winning 1.5 times your bet on her sounds like a very worthy risk. She is on fire, and her competition has weakened, so go get that money” 

Meanwhile, BetUS oddsmakers have Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka at 5/1, or an implied probability to win of 16.7%; the Americans, Cori Gauff and Jessica Pegula sit at 7/1 (implied win probability of 12.5%), and finally, the French Caroline Garcia at 7/1 as well. 

Gauff and Pegula have nonetheless captured more than 26% of the wagers placed.  The 18-year-old Gauff has attracted almost 13% of the tickets and 21% of the money volume. Her fellow countrywoman and third seed Pegula, counts with 14% of the wagers placed but only 5.67% of the dollar volume.  

Lastly, WTA finals champion and ranked No. 4 Caroline Garcia (7-1) is also drawing interest from bettors. Sabalenka, who lost to Garcia in the WTA finals, has attracted almost 10% of the tickets bet and Garcia 7.53%.
