Bettors support underdog Rybakina in early Aussie Open final betting action

After six rounds of action, the first Grand Slam of the year has its last two contenders for the 2023 women’s singles title. Australian Open outright winner odds for Belarus’ Aryna Sabalenka started at a respectable 5/1. Her opponent, Elena Rybakina had the seventh-best odds at 20/1, according to oddsmakers at BetUS.  

Despite being the underdog and currently sitting at +110, the Kazakh and world No. 25 Rybakina has attracted 71.43% of the tickets and 69.20% of the money volume bets placed.  

Sabalenka is into her first major final and will face the reigning Wimbledon champion Rybakina. Sabalenka has won all three matches against Rybakina, with each going three sets.   

Rybakina, 23, has been taking down strong opponents in Melbourne. She had defeated last year's finalist Danielle Collins, World No. 1 Iga Swiatek, 2019 French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko and two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka in a semifinal.  

Sabalenka has continued her outstanding performance at Adelaide, defeating 26th seed Elise Mertens in the third round, No. 12 seed Belinda Bencic in the fourth, Donna Vekic in the quarterfinals and surprise semifinalist Magda Linette.   

Since tennis bets are gaining popularity every year BetUS offers different prop bets, or proposition bets, allowing bettors to bet on a slew of different potential outcomes during a match. For this final in particular customers can also bet on the total amount of sets, aces, double faults, and breaks for either Sabalenka or Rybakina.  

The Australian Open singles final will be played on Saturday at 3:30 a.m. ET on Rod Laver Arena at Melbourne Park.
