The year's second major, the French Open, begins Sunday, May 26 from Roland Garros. Defending champ Simona Halep is the 4-1 favorite, followed by Naomi Osaka and Kiki Bertens at 8-1 apiece. Bookmakers list Serena Williams at 10-1.
SportsLine recruited famed women's tennis expert Gavin Mair -- who called Osaka's 2018 U.S. Open championship at 32-1 -- to pick the tournament. Over the past two years, Mair is up an astounding 213 units on his picks to win tournaments and quarters. That means if you had simply placed $100 on each of those picks, you'd be up $21,300!
Now Mair has broken down the latest 2019 French Open odds and released his three best bets to win it all: All are 20-1 or higher including a massive 60-1 long shot!
Mair calls Halep an understandable favorite, but says "there is a good chance she will not retain her championship. Prior to the start of this season, Halep's coach, Darren Cahill decided he would no longer take charge of the Romanian's camp... He was instrumental in Halep's rise to the top of the sport."
Instead, Mair is all over a MAJOR long shot who grew up playing on clay and enters the 2019 French Open in top form. She has a much better chance than her French Open odds indicate, so she's a target for anyone looking for a HUGE payday! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who it is before making any picks of your own.
So who wins the 2019 French Open? And which MASSIVE long shots stun the tennis world? ... Join SportsLine right now to see Gavin Mair's best bets, all from the acclaimed expert who's returned more than $21,000 to $100 players!
