Alexander Zverev v Dominic Thiem betting tips, prediction & odds; US Open Men’s Final Preview 2020
Welcome to our US Open tennis final preview and free Alexander Zverev v Dominic Thiem betting tips, prediction and odds update for their clash on Sunday.
Thiem is the $1.20 favourite with leading tennis betting site Betway, while Zverev is paying 4.35 to cause an upset.
Neither player has won a grand slam before and both will be hell-bent on cashing in on Novak Djokovic’s disqualification and the absence of Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer.
Thiem has won the last three encounters between these players, including a four-set win at the Australian Open earlier this year. Two of these victories have been on hardcourt, the same surface as the US Open. Overall Thiem leads their head to head 7-2.
Alexander Zverev’s path to the US Open final
Zverev has suffered several scares on his way to the US Open final, including a five-set win over Pablo Carreno Busta in the semi-final. Zverev dropped the first two sets against the Spanish no.20 seed before reeling off three successive sets to reach his first grand slam final.
Zverev also played a tough four setter against Borna Coric in the quarter-final, winning the second and third sets in tie-breakers.
Dominic Thiem’s path to the US Open final
The Austrian has probably had a tougher path into the US Open final than his opponent, beating Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in the semi-final and thrashing young guns Alex De Minaur and Felix Auger-Aliassime in the previous two rounds.
Thiem also has a four-set win over Marin Cilic in the bank at this tournament and has largely produced a flawless tournament.
The US Open Men’s Final is due to start at 4pm EDT on Sunday. Read on for our free Zverev v Thiem analysis, free tips and winner prediction.
Zverev v Thiem tips
Our tennis betting expert has cast his eye over the Zverev v Thiem betting and found several value tips:
Correct set betting
We ultimately think Thiem will win this game, his form is just too impressive to bet against him but this is a US Open final and the stakes are high. We are expecting several ebbs and flows in this contest and it to pan out similar to the way the Australian Open semi-final between these two went. Consider taking Thiem to win in four sets, which is paying around 3.70 with William hill.
Under 41.5 games total
We are predicting Thiem to win in four sets and we think the total games played will stay under 41.5. This bet is only paying 1.53 with William Hill, but looks to be a strong leg for accumulators or parlays.
Zverev vs Thiem match prediction
Thiem leads Zverev 7-2 in head to head meetings and definitely holds sway on this type of court. Thiem has reached this stage in a grand slam before and has beaten the better opponents at this tournament. This has us believing that the Austrian will become the newest grand slam winner. Our final Zverev v Thiem match prediction? Thiem 3-1.
