Paddy Power have a great betting proposition opportunity for the Australian Open.
Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are ranked 1 and 2 on the ATP tour and they have the top two seeds heading into the Australian Open.
However, neither of them were notably strong in the last 5 months of 2009. With that in mind, consider a betting prop that Paddy Power are currently offering.
Australian Open: Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal vs The Field
With this prop you can either bet Nadal or Federer to win the Australian Open at odds of -110 (10/11) or you can bet the other 126 players at -125 (4/5).
With the field you would be getting such notable players as 2008 champion Novak Djokovic, reigning US Open champion Juan Martin Del Potro, top Brit Andy Murray, and rising star Marin Cilic. However, besides those players you would get everyone except Federer and Nadal.
Since neither Nadal nor Federer looks to be on Grand Slam champion form heading into the Aussie, the field certainly has value in this proposition and it would guarantee that you have players of interest deep in the draw in Melbourne.
Our recommendation is to pound that line.
