The 2022 French Open is set to start Sunday and will run through June 5, and Thursday night's draw set things up for what are likely to be some interesting early matchups. It's a top-heavy lineup, and a lopsided draw that features Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev on one side should make for an intriguing fortnight at Roland Garros.
Djokovic is seeking to complete a triple Career Grand Slam, while Nadal is gunning to extend his record with a 22nd career Grand Slam title. The 19-year-old Alcaraz will try to punctuate his rapid rise with his first Grand Slam title. Djokovic is the +200 favorite, follwed by and Alcaraz at +225 in the latest 2022 French Open odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Nadal (+400) and 2021 runner-up Stefanos Tsitsipas (+400) are other top challengers, while no other players are priced lower than +2200.
Before you make any men's tennis picks on the 2022 French Open, you need to see who Sean Calvert is backing.
Calvert is the famed handicapper who called Stan Wawrinka winning the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1 -- the last Australian title won by someone other than Novak Djokovic or Roger Federer. In 2019, Calvert took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1, among many stunning calls.
Now, Calvert has scrutinized the latest French Open odds and released his coveted best bets to win it all. We can tell you he's strongly fading Nadal, even with a record 22nd Grand Slam title on the line. Calvert says the foot injury that flared up again recently could mean this is the legendary Spaniard's swan song at Roland Garros. He doesn't expect it to end in glory. "Surely this price is far too short given how he limped out of Rome," Calvert says.
Instead, Calvert is backing an underdog that would return well over 20-1! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before locking in any 2021 French Open picks of your own!
