Legendary women's tennis expert Gavin Mair: Serena Williams primed for upset
An uncanny international women's tennis guru, Mair called Osaka winning the 2018 U.S. Open at 32-1, part of his mind-boggling two-year streak. Over that period, $100 bettors following Mair's tournament picks are up more than $21,000. In the U.S. Open alone, $100 bettors are up $4,450.
At this year's French Open, Mair told readers to back 60-1 long shot Marketa Vondrousova. When she made it all the way to the finals, anyone who had listened to Mair's advice was able to hedge for big profits.
Now, Mair has analyzed the latest women's U.S. Open odds 2019 and released his coveted best bets to win. They are all long shots of 16-1 or higher, including an astronomical underdog. He's only sharing them at SportsLine.
One huge shocker Mair is calling for at U.S. Open 2019: Williams, who has 23 Grand Slam singles title, falls short despite her status as the clear Vegas favorite. There are far better values in the 2019 U.S. Open field than the 5-1 premium you'll need to pay for her.
Mair believes the six-time U.S. Open champ won't hold up over the course of the two-week grind. Seeded No. 8, Williams opens the 2019 U.S. Open bracket with a star-studded match versus Maria Sharapova. Williams is 19-2 all-time against Sharapova, but they've never met at the U.S. Open. Even assuming Williams wins, Mair doesn't believe she'll go all the way.
"Williams is struggling to find her best tennis deep into a tournament," Mair told SportsLine. "Such incidences occurred in one-sided defeats in last year's U.S. Open final against Osaka, and against Halep in this year's Wimbledon final."
Instead, Mair is high on three long shots on the 2019 U.S. Open odds board, including a young "incredible talent" everyone is dismissing. According to Mair, this overlooked player "will win Grand Slam titles" and her first could come at the U.S. Open 2019.
