Novak Djokovic is favorite to win Australia Open 2015 Men's title

The world could use a break! The 2015 Australian Open from Melbourne figures to be one of the most viewed sporting contests of the year. This year’s seeds, including 2014 defending champion Stanislas Wawrinka as the four seed, are very different than last year’s seeds. But, what do the bettors think and who will rise above the field and claim the first major of 2015?

By overwhelming odds of evens - 2.0 (at Paddy Power - Get £20 FREE Bet) , world number 1 and top seed Novak Djokovic tops the betting line.

While the Big Four, Djokovic (1 – evens), Roger Federer (2 – 11/2) Rafa Nadal (3- 7/1) and Andy Murray (6 – 8/1) did not dominate the tour with their usual superiority in 2014, they head the betting favorites again this year. A word to the wise, watch out! Favorites traditionally fall in Australia’s summer heat and the deck is one of the most challenging on the tour. The pace is fast and puts a premium on endurance, which Wawrinka (4 – 12/1) displayed in uncommon amounts last year to win the title.

Other notables include Japan’s most effective tennis power, Keri Nishikori (5 – 14/1), powerful Tomas Berdych (7 – 33/1) and promising Milos Raonic ( 8 – 33/1) of Canada. Nishikori is well suited for this court and the climate. Berdych is expected to fade and Raonic struggles with his return game. Serve and volley types tend to succumb in Melbourne.

The game’s premier hound dog is still David Ferrer (9 – 66/1) whose effectiveness waned in 2014 after a startling 2013 season. Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov (10 – 28/1) possesses the power and athleticism to make competitors nervous. Many insiders believe Melbourne is well suited for this upset-minded tiger, who would have to play through Federer and the Murray quarterfinal winner to reach the finals. We like Dimitrov’s chances in the lower bracket. Just remember, you heard it here.

It seems doubtful that the health of Spain’s Rafa the Great can hold up. Assuming Berdych falters, the most likely semifinalist from the top of the bottom bracket would be Ernest Gulbis (11 – 125/1), who has a propensity for five-setters. Australia’s Bernard Tomic 80/1), who has virtually self-destructed, will get crowd support but seems teetering. American John Isner (19 – 200/1) will hang tough but, like Raonic, struggles to break serve and bookmakers do not like his chances.

It is Andy Murray who may be the most fascinating ticket in the men’s draw. Who knows, right? If it is not his coach, or his health, it is between his ears, always a sensitive area for the Scotsman. But, on paper and without the pressure of a major, Murray has all the tools. The player with everything, including the conditioning and who seems able to play through pain and injury is Federer. If these two are both in form, I give the edge to Murray, but I do not see this as a matchup in this tournament. I look for Dimitrov to explode from the bottom, overcome his nerves in the finals and knock off Wawrinka. This will trigger a year of welcome transition for the 2015 tournament schedule and provide us all with much a needed break!

  1. I'll rule out Andy Murray who will complain of extreme heat more than he will put efforts in winning matches. Roger Federer has lost ability to win Grand Slams so he is out too. Novak is my favourite and there might be few stunners in last 4. Nishikori and Raonic are capable of stunning top seeded.

  2. I'm all in for Andy Murray.

  3. It's easy to predict that Novak Djokovic will reach to the final. The question is who will he meet in the grand finale?

  4. I'll be posting few betting strategies as I come across. The first one is to back Milos Raonic. He is 41.0 at William Hill and it's a jackpot. If he reaches last 16 this odd will come down and then you can lay at BetfairBetfair to make safe profit. Keep an eye on him. If he meets top players then it would be safe to lay there, take profit and exit.

    • Munna Bhai, I think it is good strategy. Even if he wins first 2 rounds odds will shorten which will give you nice profit. What if he loses out in the first round itself?

      • It depends on who he is playing in the fist round. If he plays Djokovic then he will be certainly out but this rarely happens. We all know that the fixture of all Grand Slam tournaments are fixed and organizers make sure that top 16 remain in the last 16. Sometimes one or two top players get tough journey like Andy Murray has right now but in most cases it's always easy sailing till last 16. So I reckon he is safe for at least 2-3 rounds.

    • Please Bhai.Awaiting your strategies...But Milos seriously is not someone to bank upon even at 41.....not in his sublime form...can be a one cup wonder like his coach....and there was serious doubt even about his participation

  5. Thanks for the review Admin....i seriously doubt for Raonic to reach 4th round only...Wawrinka quaterfinal is enough...Berdych and Ferrer will have there own natural run like always....Nishi can go ahead if he has initial good rounds.....Goffin and Tomic for me can go long ahead then most people are expecting from them...Dimitrov can make to the semis with Andy.....
    For me its Joker vs Roger

    • Pick 4 such players with odds 20 or above. At least one of them will reach last 16 which will earn you profit.

  6. 2nd Strategy

    Back David Ferrer. He is 81.0 at Ladbrokes and playing Thomas Belluci in first round which will be easy win for David. He is good till last 32 unless he meets top 4 players.

    • Munna bhai i need Your help. !!! I already back ( k.Anderson , G.simon, N.Kyrgios , G. Monfils , D.Ferrer and M.raonic with high odd 40-200+ ) is that possible to get profit if more than 2 person to reach round 4 ??? or No chance for lay ??
