French Open 2022 men’s odds, picks, predictions: Senior tennis expert knocks out Rafael Nadal in futures betting
Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic will be in the headlines, but Carlos Alcaraz will be hoping for glory at the 2022 French Open, which begins in Paris on Sunday. Nadal has won 13 titles at Roland Garros, while Djokovic is the highest ranked player in the world and the defending champion. But Alcaraz, 19, has soared, winning in Miami, Barcelona and Madrid (where he beat Nadal and Djokovic two weeks ago). He is looking for his first career Grand Slam title. All three are in the same half of the draw which was released on Thursday night, so we could see some early excitement. Djokovic beat Stefanos Tsitsipas in last year’s final and could equal Nadal’s record 21 Grand Slam titles if he can repeat and complete a career triple Grand Slam.
Caesars Sportsbook lists Djokovic and Alcaraz as joint 2-1 favorites in its latest 2022 French Open odds for the men’s draw. Nadal (4-1) and Tsitsipas (4-1) are among the other top contenders at Roland Garros 2022. Before we lock in the French Open 2022 picks for the men’s champion, you need to see who is backing Sean Calvert from Sports Line.
Calvert is the elite tennis handicapper who called out Stan Wawrinka in winning the 2014 Australian Open 60-1 – the last Australian title won by anyone other than Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer. In 2019, Calvert notched a huge score over Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells 80-1, among many other stunning calls.
Now Calvert has taken a look at the final field at Roland Garros 2022 and has released his coveted best bets to win it all. He shares all of his picks and analysis on SportsLine.
Top predictions for Roland-Garros 2022
One of Calvert’s surprising picks at Roland-Garros 2022 is fading heavily, 13-time Roland-Garros champion Nadal, who looks far from fit enough to make a good run over the course. of this two-week event. The Spaniard’s foot injury erupted again in Rome as he won the first set 6-1 and then collapsed in the next two against Denis Shapovalov. Nadal has trained and looks relatively healthy, but going all out in a Grand Slam could easily make the problem worse at any time, so Calvert isn’t expecting much.
The 35-year-old was candid in assessing his fitness and his frustration at not being able to prepare as he wishes. The tennis expert knows that Nadal’s dominance at Roland Garros since winning his first title there in 2005, days after his 19th birthday, makes him a threat every time he turns up. That makes him one of the favorites, but “surely that price is way too short.” Calvert says he wouldn’t be surprised if this was Nadal’s last run in Paris, given his injury struggles.
How to make choices at Roland-Garros 2022
Instead, Calvert backs an underdog who would come back well above 20-1. This player is in the weaker half of the table and things went very well for him to reach the final. He shares who he is, and all of his choices, here.
