NEW YORK – Novak Djokovic begins his quest for 24 Grand Slams as a 10.5-game favorite against Alexandre Muller at the 2023 US Open. The first-round match has -120 odds to go over the 26.5-game total.

Alexandre Muller
+10.5 (-120)
U26.5 (-110)

In the last hard-court Grand Slam event at the Australian Open, Djokovic covered a 10.5-game spread in three of his final four matches. He only defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas (World No. 7) by five games in the finals, but beat the No. 14, No. 13, and No. 8 ranked players in the world by 11 games or more.

Meanwhile, Alexandre Muller is the No. 84 ranked player in the Pepperstone ATP rankings heading into the first round of the 2023 US Open.

Add in Djokovic’s 20-1 record on hard courts this season and betting on the US Open spread with -110 odds is a no-brainer for The Serb.

Alcaraz Favored to Dominate First Round Opponent

Carlos Alcaraz is a 9.5-game favorite against Dominik Koepfer, who represents Alcaraz’s first roadblock towards defending his 2022 US Open title.
