Carlos Alcaraz (ESP)

The young Spaniard started the tournament with odds of +300, and his impressive form has seen his odds consistently shorten. Before the first round, his odds moved to +175 and have since been on a downward trend, currently sitting at +120 before the semi-finals. Leading the way with 26.7% of tickets and second with 30.1% of the handle, Alcaraz is clearly catching the eye of bettors. He will take on Daniil Medvedev in the semis.

Novak Djokovic (SRB)

World No.1 Novak Djokovic began the US Open as a favorite at +160. His odds dipped favorably before the first round to +120 and continued to tighten, currently standing at -125. Despite holding 17.8% of tickets, a leading 39.5% of the handle is riding on the Serbian star. Bettors are putting serious money behind Djokovic’s quest for another Grand Slam. Before he gets there, the Joker has to get by Ben Shelton.

Daniil Medvedev (RUS)

Russian powerhouse Daniil Medvedev began his campaign at +333. Surprisingly, his odds shot up to +900 and stayed there, except for a brief spike to +1000. Currently, before the semi-finals, he’s back at +900. Medvedev’s journey has attracted 8.9% of tickets and 6.4% of the handle.

Ben Shelton (USA)

The long shot Ben Shelton had opening odds of +15000. While those odds remained stable through the first couple of rounds, a drop to +10000 and then +6600 indicated rising interest. Now, ahead of the semis, he’s at +3300 with 8.8% of tickets and 4.9% of the handle.
