Women’s Australian Open Odds & Analysis

Serena Williams +450

The seven-time Australian Open champion is looking quite dangerous as she gets set for the 2019 Aussie Open. Williams has a ton of motivation as she looks to tie Margaret Court for the all-time slam record of 24. More importantly, the polarizing Williams has reached the finals in four of the last six majors since the birth of her daughter and comes into this year’s Aussie Open fresh off her first title win in three years after beating Jessica Pegula in straight sets at Auckland this past weekend.

Naomi Osaka +700

The reigning Australian Open champ beat five Top 30 players en route to the title a year ago and she reached the semis at Brisbane before falling to Karolina Pliskova in the finals. The bad news for every other player on the WTA Tor is that the 22-year-old superstar still looks like a player that still has a ton of untapped potential and one that can improve on her stellar, 40-11 mark a year ago.

Ashleigh Barty +800

The world No. 1 reached the quarterfinal round in her national home tournament in Australia a year ago and looks poised for even bigger and better things in 2020. Barty won her first major in 2019 (French Open) and comes into this event with a newfound confidence after going a stellar 57-13 last year and beating the world’s top eight players in the 2019 WTA Tour Finals.

Simona Halep +900

The former world No. 1 reached the fourth round in Australia last year before falling to Osaka. However, Halep went 43-17 a year ago with one titles and reached the finals in this event in 2018. Simply put, counting out the 2019 Wimbly champ would be a massive mistake.

Karolina Pliskova +1000

I’ve been waiting for the world No. 2 to claim her first slam title for a while now and although she’s underachieved far too often the last couple of years, Pliskova is coming into this year’s Aussie Open fresh off her third Brisbane International title in four years. Pliskova went 52-17 a year ago with four titles and reached the semis at the 2019 Australian Open before falling to eventual champ Naomi Osaka in three sets in the semis.

Madison Keys +1800

Still, just 24-years-old, American Madison Keys is still searching for her maiden slam. After going a modest 28-15 a year ago with two titles, Keys comes into this year’s Aussie Open off an impressive run to the finals at Brisbane where she fell to Pliskova in a three-set thriller. Keys reached the fourth round a year ago and her best run at the Aussie came in 2015 when she reached the semifinals.

Petra Kvitova +2000

The two-time grand slam champion went 37-16 last year with two titles, but she also reached the finals in Australia before falling to Naomi Osaka. Still, I think it’s best you spend your Australian Open betting bucks on another players seeing as how Kvitova has only reached the semis or better twice here in the last dozen years.

  • Aryna Sabalenka +2000

Elina Svitolina +2500

The world No. 5 struggled a bit in going a modest 39-22 a year ago with no titles after going 44-15 with four titles in 2018, but Svitolina has reached the quarterfinal round in Australia in each of the last two years and comes into this year’s event off consecutive semifinal appearances at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.

Angelique Kerber +2800

The 2016 Australian Open champion has struggled since winning her third Grand Slam at Wimbledon in 2018 and comes into this year’s Aussie off an opening-round loss to Sam Stosur at the Brisbane International. Still Kerber should be quite motivated and I believe she’s got plenty of upset potential after reaching the fourth round or better in each of her last four appearances in Australia and six times in her last seven.

  • Amanda Anisimova +3300
  • Garbine Muguruza +3300

Belinda Bencic +3300

The 22-year-old Swiss star went 50-22 last year with two titles and comes into this event off a semifinal appearance at last year’s U.S. Open. While Bencic has never made it past the third round appearance she reached in Australia in 2019, she’s clearly a player that has every tool necessary to become a grand slam champion at some point in the very near future.

Kiki Bertens +3300

Bertens went 55-26 a year ago with two titles and she reached the semis at last year’s Australian Open before falling to the eventual champ. Bertens reached the quarters at Brisbane this past week before losing to Naomi Osaka in three sets. This year, Bertens doesn’t get past the quarters.

  • Cori Gauff +4000
  • Johanna Konta +5000
  • Sofia Kenin +5000
  • Sloane Stephens +5000
  • Karolina Muchova +6600
  • Iga Swiatek +6600
  • Caroline Wozniacki +6600
  • Dayana Yastremska +6600

Jelena Ostapenko +8000

Still just 22years-old, the powerful Latvian wen an unspectacular 27-27 a year ago with one title. Still, after hiring former WTA star and slam winner Marion Bartoli as her coach late last year, Ostapenko quickly went from world No.73 to No.44 after winning 10 of her last 12 matches to end her 2019 campaign. The 2017 French Open champ got knocked out in the first round in Australia a year ago, but she possesses the power to bash anyone in the game off the court.
