US Open Best Bets 9/9/2022

We’ve reached the men’s semifinal in the US Open, and Carlos Alcaraz is the only favorite to have made it out of their bracket. So, with this surprising field, we are guaranteed a first-time major winner.

Carlos Alcaraz (-200) V. Frances Tiafoe (+164)

Carlos Alcaraz entered this tournament as a three seed and is now the highest seed remaining. After struggling in the first round, he made it through via a walkover. After that, Alcaraz cruised through the next two rounds but met his match in Marin Cilic. The two went five sets, and after 48 games, Alcaraz came out on top. Looking at the remaining field, some may think that was the most challenging match he would have to play to bring home the title, but Faces Tiafoe might be the hottest man in tennis.

Frances Tiafoe entered his draw as a twenty-two seed. Vegas predicted he would have a third-round exit, but after upsetting Diego Schwartzman in straight sets, his fate was sealed facing Rafael Nadal — or so bettors thought. Tiafoe needed only four sets to knock out El Nino. After that, Tiafoe continued his crazy streak defeating Andrey Rublev in three sets. So, all in all, Tiafoe has three upsets and only lost one set in five matches.

This is going to be a tight match, but I can’t advise betting against world beater, Frances Tiafoe.

Frances Tiafoe Wins the Match and Both Players Win a Set (+250)

Casper Ruud (-200) V. Karen Khachanov (+164)

Casper Ruud had an extremely easy road to the semi-finals; the most challenging match he’s had to play was against Matteo Berrettini. Ruud was slated to cross paths with world number one, Daniil Medvedev. Unfortunately, Nick Kyrgios spoiled those plans, who made quick work of Medvedev in the fourth round, but since Khackanoc defeated Kyrgios, Rudd doesn’t even have to play the man that defeated Medvedev.

As a result, Ruud has made the semi-finals untested, and Khachanov is here playing out of his league. I wouldn’t dare predict the winner of this game; the only thing that’s for sure is they will need more than three sets to decide a winner.
