The 2020 Men’s US Open will begin on August 31 and some big names have withdrawn from playing at the Grand Slam set to take place in New York City because of the Covid-19 pandemic. The list of dropouts could grow before the tournament starts, but we are likely just about settled with the tournament around the corner. We’ll go over the betting splits of the top competitors here.

Novak Djokovic is heavily favored to win at -125 at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Serbian benefitted from world No. 2 Rafael Nadal dropping out. Djokovic commands an overwhelming 55 percent of the handle and has 22 percent of the total bets. He’s won the US Open three times.

Daniil Medvedev (+600) has the second best odds to win. The world No. 5 ranks second in handle (18 percent) but leads all players in total bets (56 percent). He made the finals at the 2019 US Open but fell to Nadal.

World No. 6 Stefanos Tsitsipas (+750) rounds out the top three. He ranks third in the field with 8 percent of the handle and has 2 percent of total bets. he’s never made a major, but has a decent chance to make his first Grand Slam final with some heavy hitter sitting out.
