Novak Djokovic, Iga Swiatek have best title odds

The Australian Open 2023 is off and running. Over two days of action, several competitive matches and a few upsets on both the men’s and women’s sides have set the tone for the rest of the tournament.

BetMGM suggests the Australian Open could end with a couple of the world’s best hoisting trophies.

Novak Djokovic has won nine Australian Open titles in his career (a record), so despite being the No. 5 player in the world, his -125 odds at the sportsbook are the shortest of any remaining player in the field to win the tournament.

Daniil Medvedev (+450), Rafael Nadal (+1200), Stefanos Tsitsipas (+1400) and Taylor Fritz (+1800) round out the top-5 Australian Open title favorites for the men’s bracket.

Unlike the men’s singles, the odds-on favorite to win the women’s bracket isn’t a former Australian Open champion. Instead, the No. 1 player in the world, 21-year-old Iga Swiatek, is the tournament’s favorite with +220 odds.

Aryna Sabalenka (+700) and Jessica Pegula (+750) have the second and third-best odds to win the open while Coco Gauff (+1200), Caroline Garcia (+1200) and Belinda Bencic (+1200) all share the next-shortest title odds.
