Jabeur, Garcia, and Sabalenka: Best Aussie Open Round 2 Bets

  • Ons Jabeur’s money line against Markéta Vondroušová sits at -140 odds
  • Both Jabeur and Aryna Sabalenka are 2-0 against their opponents
  • Caroline Garcia is favored by 3.5 games in first match vs Leylah Fernandez

MELBORNE – The Australian Open second round begins on Wednesday, headlined by three players who have top 10 odds to win the whole tournament.

According to online gambling sites: Aryna Sabalenka (+750), Caroline Garcia (+110), and Ons Jabeur (+2200) are amongst the favorites.

Ons Jabeur Looks to Win Third Straight vs Vondroušová

Largely considered to be the best female Arab player in history, Jabeur comes into the Australian Open ranked second in the world, behind tournament winning favorite Iga Swiatek (+170).

Jabeur will face Markéta Vondroušová for the third time in her career, and is favored to win for the third time in a row at -140 odds. Jabeur’s creative yet risky style of play may offer some value for bettors looking to take a +2 spread for Vondroušová, but the match history between the two favors Jabeur’s -2 spread.

In two matches against Vondroušová, Jabeur was able to win by an average margin of 3.5 games. Assuming she can continue her strong streak, bettors can find a spread of Jabeur -2 (-110) as a strong alternative to her -140 money line odds.

Sabalenka Looks to Capitalize on Rogers’ Loss Streak

Similar to Jabeur, Aryna Sabalenka is 2-0 against Shelby Rogers and tennis gambling sites have set a massive Sabalenka -5 (EVEN) spread. In 2 previous matches against Rogers, Sabalenka has won by an average margin of 5 games.

Shelby Rogers comes into the match with a dismal 1-4 record over her last five games. However, in the last meeting against Sabalenka, Rogers was able to take a tiebreaker match off her. For bettors bullish on the spread, Rogers +5 may be of value as she performed much better in the most recent match, only losing by three total games.

Garcia vs Fernandez Overview

Perhaps the hardest match to predict will be #4 ranked Caroline Garcia vs Leylah Fernandez. Garcia has been a strong server in 2023, with 25 aces in just four games. However, where she has really struggled is on return points won with just 35.3%.

This bodes well for Fernandez especially on the hard courts present in the Australian Open.

With a great 50% return points won in her 3 matches this year, Fernandez matches up decently well against Garcia and could provide bettors with some conviction to take her spread of +3.5 (-115).

Keep in mind, Fernandez registered 102 double faults in 29 matches in 2022, meaning she could very well be her own worst enemy in this match.

Ons Jabeur Spread -2 (-110)
