Australian Open Betting Guide: Free Bets, Tips & Promotions
The Australian Open signals the start of the epic Grand Slam season, and is one of the biggest tennis tournaments around the world. Scheduled to start January 14 2019 to January 27, the Aus Open offers enough betting opportunities to make your money, and then some more. We’ll be sharing all of the greatest tips, betting sites and promotions for tennis Australia to top up those dollars.
Australian Open 2019 Best Odds
Betting Australia tennis opportunities are always at their best for the Aus Open. After last year’s performance, Roger Federer is in pole position for taking home the title after storming to victory in the 2018 Australian Open. It was his 20th Major Singles win, and he is considered to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time.
However, he faces stiff competition in Novak Djokovic, with sports experts predicting Federer and Rafa Nadal need a ‘miracle’ to stop him from taking the titles next year. Bet365, currently, has Djokovic to win at 2.37 (11/8), with Federer coming a close second at 5.00 (4/1). Unibet also have Djokovic out front, but with Nadal second in line at 5.50 (9/2).
The current men’s singles Australian open betting winner odds are:
- Novak Djokovic 2.37 (Bet365)
- Rafael Nadal 5.5 (Unibet)
- Roger Federer 6.00 (Ladbrokes AU)
- Alexander Zverev 10.5 (Betfair Australia)
- Andy Murray 13.00 (MadBookie)
The women’s Australian Open betting odds are just as evenly matched, with Serena Williams and Caroline Wozniacki set to dominate the Grand Slam. While Williams didn’t even make it to the Open, she’s still set to take home the title in 2019 – even with her current rankings of no. 10. The world no. 2, Caroline Wozniacki, will prove stiff competition for Serena – especially with the 2018 title under her belt. However, it’s Simona Halep – the Aus Open runner-up – that many betting sites are expecting to be the player to challenge the Williams sister, as well as Angelique Kerber and Naomi Osaka.
The current women’s single odds for the Australian Open are:
- Serena Williams 5.00 (Betfair Australia)
- Angelique Kerber 9.00 (Pointsbet)
- Simona Halep 9.00 (Neds)
- Naomi Osaka 9.00 (TopBetta)
- Caroline Wozniacki 13.00 (Pointsbet)
You can also expect plenty of matched betting Australia opportunities, along with thousands of markets to open up in time for the Grand Slam. Bet365, Ladbrokes, Betfair and the others all boast thousands of markets each week for Australian Open betting, such as outright winner markets, handicap, over and under totals, correct score, set winner and in-play betting. Also, you can expect a lot of promotions to make the most of your matched betting Australia opportunities.
Australian Open 2019 Men’s Tips
Federer stormed to victory in the 2018 Aus Open, and his past performance is strong, solid and worthy of an investment. He successfully defeated Marin Čilić for his 20th Grand Slam singles title, and his sixth for the Australian Open. He’s also the oldest man to ever do this, with experience playing to his advantage but age to his disadvantage.
Like Federer, Djokovic has put in a stellar performance in his last three tournaments and is back to his best, sitting second in the ATP tennis rankings. Rounding up the greatest generation for tennis players, Nadal is expected to kick into gear in time for tennis Australia. He has been plagued with injuries, but is strong and reliable. It’s going to be a close call between the top three.
Australian Open 2019 Women’s Tips
Similar to the men’s predictions, the women’s Australian Open betting odds are close. The 2019 Australian Open spells the return for Serena Williams after her triumph in 2017 while eight weeks pregnant. The 23-time Grand Slam winner will have to fight to retain her title, especially with 2018 runner-up, Simona Halep, going for victory. The final was exceptionally close, and Halep will be looking to push further than ever before. We also suggest keeping an eye on Osaka, Kerber and the current champion, Caroline Wozniacki.
It’s also worth looking into free bets – especially for matched betting Australia. There will be plenty of bookmakers offering welcome bonuses, just in time for one of the biggest tennis tournaments of the year.

Australian Open Results 2018
The betting Australian tennis opportunities for the 2018 Open were huge, and it’s no wonder – the finals were nothing short of impressive. Federer defended his title (after an epic battle against Nadal in the Australian Open 2017), winning 6-2, 6-7, 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 against Marin Čilić. With this win, Federer became the oldest man to with a Grand Slam title since 1972.
The women’s final was much closer, with the two world’s best players, Wozniacki and Halep, competing. They had both been world number one without winning a Grand Slam title, but Wozniacki closed the gap winning 7-6, 3-6, 6-4.
