  • We have third-round WTA US Open betting action on Saturday in New York starting at 11 a.m. ET.
  • Brett Farrenkopf gives his two favorite plays on the women's side, including picks for Kristie Ahn vs. Jelena Ostapenko (12:30 p.m. ET) and Belinda Bencic vs. Anett Kontaveit (9 p.m. ET).

All odds below as of 7:15 a.m. ET on Saturday and via PointsBet.

We have quite a betting card on Saturday at the US Open, highlighted by young American phenom Coco Gauff taking on World No. 1 Naomi Osaka in primetime. I couldn’t blame you for taking a shot on Coco but the line looks spot on to me.

Coco has needed two dramatic three-set victories over players much worse than Osaka to get to this point. And while Osaka had knee concerns headed into the US Open, she has looked just fine on the court.

While I didn’t find anything there, I did find two bets worth making on the women’s side — one in the early afternoon and one later tonight. let’s dig in.


Kristie Ahn (+142) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (-176)
