A Step Ahead: US Open
Last week we were able to take Juan Martin del Potro at a high point of 33/1 to win the US Open and tonight further opportunity has presented itself in the men's outright market for the US Open. Del Potro's price has coming crashing down to a best price of 13/1 after his impressive performances at Wimbledon where he pushed Novak Djokovic to the brink despite not being injury-free.
Andy Murray's Wimbledon triumph has resulted in a slight overreaction with a couple of books and it's enough for The Overrule to further strengthen a position in this market. Sky Bet and Bet Victor have eased Djokovic out to 15/8 which is as big a price as he has been for the US Open since early March. Positions are split with some having Djokovic or Murray as marginal favorite and others having them priced as joint favorites.
There is very little splitting the two and they have now faced each other in three of the last four Grand Slam finals. The Overrule would still price Djokovic as the marginal favorite for the US Open where Djokovic has won once, been to three finals and two semi-finals in the past six years. Barring injury Djokovic's price is unlikely to go beyond the 15/8 it stands at now and a four point selection on him gives us green positions on what The Overrule considers to be two of the three main contenders for the title - Djokovic, Murray and del Potro.
