Is Nick Kyrgios Getting Underrated by the Online Sportsbooks?

  • Nick Kyrgios has -750 odds to defeat Jeffrey John Wolf, but are those odds short enough?
  • Competitors Daniil Medvedev and Rafael Nadal are both well above -1000 odds in their matches.
  • Kyrgios has +550 odds to win this tournament, but might not be getting the respect his peers are.

NEW YORK – Nick Kyrgios has been on the run of his life, but it’s possible that online sportsbooks don’t respect him as much as they should.

Nick Kyrgios Vs. Jeffrey John Wolf Odds

  • Nick Kyrgios -750
  • Jeffrey John Wolf +500

Jeffrey John Wolf is a fine player, and he enters this tournament ranked at a career-high of 83rd in the world.

He even defeated 16th seeded Roberto Bautista-Agut in the second round of the US Open – a quality scalp to claim.

However, Kyrgios has been one of the very best players in the world for the past few Major tournaments, defeating Daniil Medvedev at the Canadian Open, and reaching the finals at Wimbledon.

When Kyrgios’ odds are compared to those of his potential peers, Rafael Nadal and Daniil Medvedev, it’s clear that the sportsbooks are less sold on him than they are on the two more consistent performers.

Medvedev enters the day with -3300 odds to defeat Yibing Wu, while Nadal clocks in with -1800 odds to defeat Richard Gasquet.

However, when looking at futures odds to win the US Open, Kyrgios – while not exactly up there with Medvedev and Nadal – is one of four men who have odds shorter than +1000 to win it.

Men’s US Open 2022

  • Daniil Medvedev +185
  • Rafael Nadal +275
  • Carlos Alcaraz +375
  • Nick Kyrgios +550

The disconnect between his very short odds to win the whole tournament, and his not-long-enough odds to defeat Wolf mean that there is likely some money to be made on either side of this disconnect.

Either Kyrgios is not favored enough against Wolf, and should be bet on, or he’s too favored on the futures markets, and bettors should fade him.

Nick Kyrgios takes on Jeffrey John Wolf in the US Open on Friday at 8:15 p.m. EDT.
