NEW YORK – The US Open is onto the men’s singles semifinals and Frances Tiafoe has locked in a spot after defeating Andrey Rublev and not dropping a single set. Tiafoe had -110 odds to win that match and has +155 odds to beat Carlos Alcaraz in the semifinals.
The American tennis player has faced longer odds for a match in this tournament, after beating Rafael Nadal in the round of 16 as a +370 underdog. However, Tiafoe will be facing the outright favorite to win the tournament with Alcaraz currently having -110 odds for the title.
Before his QF victory, Tiafoe had +1200 odds to win the US Open but his odds have continued to shorten and currently sit at +450.
- Carlos Alcaraz -185
- Frances Tiafoe +155
With underdog odds, there is value in betting on Tiafoe following his momentum during the QF. During his entire 2022 US Open run, Tiafoe has only dropped one signal set. Alcaraz’s last two matches ended in five sets, barely escaping Jannik Sinner in the QFs.
There is also legal tennis betting value on Alcaraz, as he has been the favorite in every single match, he has played in 2022 Open and has not let legal sportsbooks down this far.
The two players have only met time in their professional career when they faced odd in 2021 Barcelona during the round of 64. Tiafoe won this match in two sets and had 54% of the total points won.
Prop Bets for the Match
To Win First Set and The Match
- Alcaraz -110
- Tiafoe +225
If betting on Tiafoe as the underdog, there is value in this special prop for the game because Tiafoe has won the first set of all of his 2022 US Open Matches. Alcaraz has done the same, showing betting value on both players’ momentum building early on.
To Lose First Set and Win the Match
- Alcaraz +400
- Tiafoe +550
This proposition offers big payouts on the tennis match but neither player has lost the first set in any of their 2022 Open matches at this point. Betting $50 on Tiafoe losing the first set but winning the match would profit $225.
1st Set Correct Score – Either Player
- 6-0 +5000
- 6-1 +1200
- 6-2 +700
- 6-3 +260
- 6-4 +240
- 7-5 +750
- 7-6 +250
Betting on the first set having the exact score of 6-3 has the most value for this prop because Alcaraz’s last three matches ended with a first set score of 6-3. Tiafoe also recorded a first-set score of 6-3 against Rafael Nadal in the round of 16.
