Indiana Sportsbooks Incentivize Bettors To Live Bet The US Open

Posted on August 30, 2021

The tennis calendar’s final major tournament of the year is here.

The US Open action is already underway, with matches running up until Sept. 12.

Thankfully for gamblers, you can bet on tennis in Indiana.

US Open betting odds

While some big names like Serena Williams and Roger Federer may be sitting this one out, there’s still a ton of great action at this year’s tournament.

Novak Djokovic hunts for Calendar Grand Slam

The big story at the 2021 US Open is Novak Djokovic’s quest for a Calendar Year Grand Slam.

Rod Laver was the last player to win all four Grand Slam tournaments in a single year, but that was all the way back in 1969.

Djokovic is on the hunt for that elusive feat, and DraftKings Indiana has him as the odds-on favorite for the Men’s tournament. Here’s a quick look at the odds for the US Open favorites:

  • Novak Djokovic: -145
  • Daniil Medvedev: +400
  • Alexander Zverev: +600
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas: +800
  • Andrey Rublev: +2,500

Naomi Osaka goes for third US Open win

Noami Osaka is hoping for another US Open win on the Women’s side of the bracket.

Osaka won the tournament last year, and she also won the top spot back in 2018.

Despite being the reigning champ, Osaka isn’t the betting favorite for the US Open. FanDuel Indiana has Ashleigh Barty slightly ahead of the pack.

  • Ashleigh Barty: +360
  • Naomi Osaka: +600
  • Aryna Sabalenka: +1,400
  • Iga Swiatek: +1,400
  • Karolina Pliskova: +1,800

BetRivers Us Open Profit Boost

BetRivers is hoping to reel in tennis fans with its new US Open promotion.

Specifically, the sportsbook is looking for gamblers that like to bet on the action as it’s happening. You can bet on live sports in Indiana, and BetRivers is handing out profit boosts for gamblers that do so for tennis.

If you place a live bet on any US Open match, the sportsbook will boost your winnings by 20%.

So for example, if your live tennis bet wins you $100, then BetRivers will throw in an extra $20 just for using their service.

You can use this deal during every day of the US Open, which makes it a great value for bettors looking to place multiple live bets.

The only stipulation is that your bet will need to have odds of -200 or greater to qualify for the deal. In other words, a live bet with +100 odds would qualify, but a wager on a heavy favorite at -500 wouldn’t make the cut.

TwinSpires US Open Live Bet Bonus

TwinSpires has its own promotion out there for the US Open.

Much like the offer from BetRivers, this one is handing out extra money for live betting.

However, there’s a key difference between the two deals.

With BetRivers, you have to actually win your bet to earn the bonus money. With TwinSpires, you’ll win an extra $10 regardless of whether your bet wins or loses.

All you have to do is sign up for TwinSpires if you haven’t already. Then, just be sure to opt-in to the promotion on the sportsbook’s website or app.

Once you do, just place a bet worth $25 or more, and TwinSpires will credit your account with the free $10.

If you’re looking to give live betting a try, then this deal is a great option to alleviate some of the risk involved with gambling.

The rest of Indiana’s online betting apps might release more promotions during the tournament, so check in with your favorite sportsbook for the full list of US Open betting options.
