2024 French Open: Picks, Predictions and Odds

The tennis season’s second major is almost upon us, as the French Open gets underway in Paris this weekend.

The 2024 French Open will be headlined by what is expected to be Rafael Nadal’s final appearance, as the 14-time Roland Garros champion is not planning on playing beyond this season.

It would take a monumental effort for the Spaniard to claim the spoils for a 15th time, which he is priced at +1200 to achieve, with Carlos Alcaraz (+175) and Novak Djokovic (+275) the top two in the men's betting.

Meanwhile, top seed Iga Swiatek is the firm -138 favorite to win the women's event, with Aryna Sabalena coming next in the market at +500.

Check out our expert picks to win both the Men's and Women's French Open, with one favorite and one outsider choice in both markets.

2024 French Open betting picks and predictions - Men's Event

Casper Ruud to win (+1200)

Betting on relative longshots may be the way to play the men’s tournament given there are a whole host of question marks at the top of the market, with Alcaraz (arm) and Jannik Sinner (hip) both dealing with injuries this season.

Djokovic is yet to win a tournament in 2024 and recently suffered clay-court losses in Monte-Carlo, going down to Ruud, and Rome, losing to Alejandro Tabilo.

If those players at the head of the betting falter, Ruud may be the one to take advantage. After upsetting Djokovic, the seventh-ranked Norwegian made it to the Monte-Carlo final, one week after he captured the title in Barcelona.

Ruud’s impressive current form isn’t the only reason to like his chances. Perhaps even more important is the fact that he thrives at Roland Garros, where he has lost in the final the last two years.

Daniil Medvedev to win (+2000)

Daniil Medvedev is another proven performer at Grand Slam level and, at +2000, he is flying under the radar heading into the tournament.

It is true that the Russian may not be at his best on clay but he has become more comfortable on the surface in recent years and he reached the quarter-finals here in 2021, while he also won on the red dirt in Rome last year.

Although Medvedev is still seeking his first title in 2024, he is playing well. The 28-year-old has reached two finals, losing to Sinner at the Australian Open and Alcaraz in the Indian Wells Masters.

Medvedev has also reached semifinals in Dubai and Miami to go along with a quarterfinal showing in Madrid.

2024 French Open betting picks and predictions - Women's Event

Aryna Sabalenka to win (+500)

Swiatek is so good that she has to be considered even at extremely short odds, but the value just isn’t great and, instead, it may prove prudent to look just down from the Polish star in the betting.

Australian Open champion Sabalenka has been beating basically everyone except Swiatek, who got the better of the Belarusian in the final in both Rome and Madrid.

Although the French Open has traditionally been the worst for her of the four majors, Sabalenka built some confidence with a semifinal run at this tournament last spring.

The 26-year-old's recent results in Madrid and Rome should give her confidence on clay, as well.

Danielle Collins to win (+2000)

Collins is one of the hottest players on the WTA Tour this season, having won back-to-back titles in Miami (hard courts) and Charleston (clay).

The 30-year-old American also played well in Madrid, reaching the last-16 stage, while she enjoyed a run to the semifinals in Rome before bumping into Sabalenka.

Since March 1, Collins has not lost a single match to anyone other than Swiatek or Sabalenka. She is the fifth favorite in Paris but should arguably be the third choice. That gives her great value.
