Bet Carlos Alcaraz or Rafael Nadal to Win 2023 French Open

  • Carlos Alcaraz is the 2023 French Open betting favorite at +125 odds.
  • 2022 French open winner Rafael Nadal has good value at +550 to win in back-to-back years.

PARISCarlos Alcaraz remains the French Open favorite at +125 odds despite an early exit in the Internazionali BNL d’Italia. Prior to this ATP Masters 100 Rome event, Alcaraz won each of his last two events on clay courts, explaining his favoritism for the 2023 French Open.

2023 Men’s French Open Odds

  • Carlos Alcaraz Garfia +125
  • Novak Djokovic +220
  • Rafael Nadal+400
  • Stefanos Tsitsipas+1000
  • Holger Rune+1000

Alcaraz’s game translates to any surface, posting a 19-1 record on clay courts and a 10-1 record on hard courts this season. The 20-year-old Spaniard is the fastest player ever in men’s tennis to rank No. 1 in the ATP World Tennis Rankings.

Carlos Alcaraz’s short +125 French Open odds are telling of his skillset. In last year’s Madrid Open, Alcaraz became the first teenager to defeat Rafael Nadal on clay. He followed this up by defeating World No. 1 Novak Djokovic and later going on to defeat the Madrid Open defending champion Alexander Zverev in the finals.

Rafael Nadal Has the Best Value for 2023 French Open

Rafael Nadal has +550 odds to win a 15th career French Open, as the Spaniard has dominated this event over the last 16 years. Rafael Nadal won the French Open in 2022, marking his fourth French Open win in the last five years.

Rafael Nadal has a ridiculous 82%-win rate at the French Open over the last 17 years. The success of Carlos Alcaraz and his recent injury hiatus make Rafael Nadal’s odds longer than they should be.

Nadal’s incredible dominance at the French Open make his +550 odds at online gambling sites valuable to add another Coupe des Mousquetaires trophy to his record.
