The 2016 US Open gets under way this week, and Betfair have a couple of new customer offers available on the two main protagonists in the men’s side of the draw.
The two promotions are enhanced odds offers on either Andy Murray or Novak Djopkovic to win the US Open.
- 12/1 on Andy Murray to win the US Open and £100 in Free Bets from Betfair
- 6/1 on Novak Djokovic to win US Open and £100 in Free Bets from Betfair
The maximum bet on both of these offers is £10.00. If your selection doesn’t win the US Open, you will get your tenner back as a free bet. Both of these promotions end at 12pm on Friday 2nd September. The two men are seeded 1 and 2 at the US Open, and so can’t meet until the final.
Andy Murray has had a strong consistent season so far. He has got to the final of all three of the Grand Slams so far, losing to Novak Djokovic in the Australian and French Open finals. He followed that up by winning Wimbledon for the second time in his career, before retaining his Olympic crown a few weeks later.
For all his successes this year, Murray still seems to have a monkey on his back when it comes to playing Novak Djokovic. The Serb still seems to have Murray’s number, and when they are both on form, Djokovic still looks the best player in the world.
Such a high level is very hard to maintain though, and this has been reflected by Djokovic’s early exists in Wimbledon, and the Olympics. The level Djokovic has reached at times over the last 18 to 24 months has been so high, it was inevitable that he would have occasional lapses.
In the normal betting (for us existing Betfair customers), Djokovic is 7/4, while Murray is 9/5, the bookies seem to have it down as a two horse race.
Enhanced odds offers like 12/1 on Murray are great for making risk free money from. When you can back Murray at 12/1, and then lay him on Betdaq at around 2/1 to cover the tenner, you can’t lose. These are the sort of offers and techniques used by punters who regularly make money from Betting Systems That Work.
Ensuring you can’t lose is a great place to start, and if you can achieve that, then the only way is up!
