Day 8 of Olympic betting will see one of the most dramatic finals in the Olympics. Women’s tennis has been full of upsets and champions this year. Naomi Osaka lost to Marketa Vondrousova, and now Vondrousova is going for the gold in women’s singles. This is just one of the major showdowns that bettors can wager from Friday night to Saturday morning. Here’s what bettors need to know about the women’s tennis finals.
Available Wagers On Women’s Tennis Singles And Doubles
There are a few different types of wagers on women’s tennis. In women’s singles, bettors can place moneylines, and wagers on point spreads and the number of sets. Bettors can also bet on who will win each set and place point spreads on each set. Finally, bettors can place prop bets on total player games won.
Doubles have one betting option. Bettors can place bets on the winner of the doubles round. So, bettors who want wager variety should focus on the women’s singles. But bettors who are interested in the drama surrounding the women’s doubles have an important matchup to put money on.
Bets On Women’s Singles And Doubles
There are two main players to watch in singles and doubles each. In singles, the two players to watch are Marketa Vondrousova and Belinda Bencic. Vondrousova beat Naomi Osaka in a third-round upset. FanDuel listed Osaka as the clear favorite to win with -650 odds. However, Vondrousova overcame her +390 odds and took Osaka out of the competition. It’s a friendly reminder that sportsbook odds aren’t everything. They certainly aren’t athletes’ destinies.
In doubles, bettors should consider making the team of Elena Vesnina and Veronika Kudermetova one of their picks. Vesnina won the gold in women’s doubles at the 2016 Olympics. She has a new teammate, but they’re still favored to win. That’s no guarantee of a gold medal victory, but defending champions have strong chances to hold up under the pressure of the Olympics finals.
The one athlete who’s worth watching in both the women’s singles and doubles is Belinda Bencic. She’s the last athlete standing in women’s doubles and singles, making her a potentially devastating choice for sports bettors. If she managed to win both the singles and the doubles, bettors could cash in on that great success.
The one wrinkle in this selection is in the tennis singles. Two of our picks, Vondrousova and Bencic are facing off against each other in the finals. That makes the choice between the two tricky. Vondrousova is favored to win, but not by much. The two are evenly matched, making a decision between the two difficult. Vondrousova beat Naomi Osaka, but Bencic knows how to make a comeback. She has no problem thriving as an underdog. Theirs will be the most interesting match out of the singles and doubles.
Summary Of Women’s Tennis Betting
There aren’t many wagers to make on women’s tennis. There are a few props and game liens on women’s singles. But there are only two moneylines on women’s doubles. However, women’s tennis has been one of the most exciting dramas of the Olympics. From Naomi Osaka’s defeat to Vesnina’s defense of her 2016 gold medal, there’s a lot to draw bettors in. If bettors don’t follow tennis, they can still watch the exciting conclusion to the women’s tennis events. However it ends, it’ll be explosive.
