2008 US Open Final: Odds favor Roger Federer against Andy Murray

2008 US Open Final: Odds favor Roger Federer against Andy Murray British tennis player Andy Murray beat the world No.1 Rafael Nadal to face Roger Federer at the final of the 2008 US Open Men's Singles Championship on Monday and we have the odds to win by a few of the bookmakers. The Scot stunned Rafael Nadal in four sets on Sunday to reach the US Open final, winning the semi-final 6-2 7-6 (7/5) 4-6 6-4 to set up a meeting with four-time defending champion Roger Federer on Monday. With his victory on Sunday Murray finally broke the curse of losing the last five games against the Spaniard, a victory foreseen by all odds makers, after the game was cancelled yesterday due to rain. "It's awesome to beat him, a great feeling. He's beaten me five times in a row, so that was tough, and to do it in a semi meant it was really difficult. With the rain delay yesterday, and it was windy today, there were a lot of different things, but I'm happy I came through in the end. It was really tough to serve from the near end, it was very windy, so I knew I was going to have chances to break and I just had to hang in," Andy Murray was quoted after winning the 2008 US Open semi-final and booking a ticket to the final against Federer.

 But this is as far as the sixth seed will go on Monday, bookmakers in North America and in Europe are unanimous. The offshore sportsbook BodogLife already has Roger Federer as the ultimate favorite to win the 2008 US Open Tennis Championship tomorrow, listing the Swiss with odds -200. Meanwhile Murray will be underdog once again, holding odds to win the Grand Slam at +150. North American bettors who are siding with Andy Murray to win the final on Monday may want to consider the online sportsbook Bookmaker, where the Scot is even bigger underdog and is offering payout on +165 odds to win the 2008 US Open.

 As an unspoken rule, the British bookmakers offer best odds on the favorite, Roger Federer, who is listed at 8/15 at the UK-licensed online sportsbook Bet 365, which does not accept bets from the U.S. Bet 365 has Murray as a long shot with odds 6/4 on winning the 2008 US Open men's final.
