Read more at www.cbssports.com

Starting August 30, the best tennis players in the world will convene in New York in grand slam action at the 2021 U.S. Open. Flushing Meadows and the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center host the action, with Arthur Ashe Stadium as the centerpiece. On the women’s side of the 2021 U.S. Open bracket, the field is loaded with intrigue, headlined by Naomi Osaka. Osaka, a two-time champion, is considered by many to be the player to beat.

Osaka is the betting favorite in the tournament, with Caesars Sportsbook listing her at +400 in the latest 2021 U.S. Open odds. She’s got company near the top of the odds board though, as Ash Barty is +550 and both Aryna Sabalenka and Iga Swiatek are +1000. Serena Williams is also listed at +1000. With so many legitimate contenders, you need to see the 2021 U.S. Open picks and predictions from legendary expert Gavin Mair.

A renowned women’s tennis handicapper, Mair has cashed in huge at previous U.S. Open tournaments. He called Naomi Osaka (32-1) winning the 2018 U.S. Open and Bianca Andreescu (20-1) winning the 2019 U.S. Open. He also held a position on semifinalist Belinda Bencic (50-1) at the 2019 edition, and he nailed a +550 position on the second set of the 2021 Wimbledon final.

Now, Mair has broken down the latest U.S. Open 2021 odds and released his coveted best bets to win it all. Head to SportsLine to see them.

One huge shocker: Mair doesn’t like Osaka as a value pick at +400. Osaka is perhaps the most dangerous player in the world on the hard court. That is reflected in her two wins at the U.S. Open, and she is the betting favorite in the event. That all makes sense, but Mair sees other options as superior in terms of betting value.

In fact, he views Osaka as a risk at her price of +400. Some of that stems from the very public nature of her market, as many are rushing to place wagers on her future ability. 

That isn’t the entire story, though, as Osaka also struggled in an early exit during the Olympics, even as the hometown favorite in that event. Beyond that, she hasn’t been as consistent in terms of playing tennis at the highest levels this year and, even if she has the highest ceiling in the event, there are other values worth considering.
