2024 French Open women’s odds, picks, predictions, schedule, draw: Elite tennis expert backing Coco Gauff

The 2024 French Open begins on Sunday, as defending champion and three-time winner Iga Swiatek begins her quest for a fourth title. Swiatek has a 28-2 lifetime record at Roland Garros, and she is trying to become the first woman to win titles in Madrid, Rome and Roland Garros in the same season since Serena Williams in 2013. She is on a 12-match winning streak and has been installed as the -160 favorite (risk $160 to win $100) in the 2024 French Open odds. Should you back Swiatek as the odds-on favorite with your 2024 French Open bets?

Swiatek will have to navigate a French Open draw that includes Aryna Sabalenka (+500), Coco Gauff (+850) and Elena Rybakina (+1100). Sabalenka defended her Australian Open title in January before reaching the finals in Madrid and Rome. Before locking in any 2024 French Open picks or predictions, you need to see the French Open 2024 picks from SportsLine tennis handicapper Jose Onorato.

Onorato grew up playing competitive tennis in Caracas, Venezuela. After coming to the U.S., he trained with famed coach Nick Bollettieri at IMG Academy in Florida and faced players like Robert Farah, now one of the world’s top-ranked doubles players. 

Onorato, who holds dual degrees in finance and economics from the University of Miami, does extensive research before placing any tennis bet. He studies current form, players’ tendencies on a particular surface, weather conditions and many other relevant factors. That systematic approach has helped Onorato go 160-104-8 (+97.32 units) since 2022.  

Now, Onorato has broken down the latest odds for the women’s draw of the 2024 French Open and released his coveted best bets to win it all. He’s sharing all of his picks and analysis at SportsLine.

Top 2024 French Open picks

One surprise: Onorato is high on the chances of Coco Gauff, even though she is a +850 longshot. The young American’s season has not gone according to plan thus far, but she remains one of the best clay court players in the women’s game. Her forehand is one of her biggest weaknesses, so the slow clay courts give her some much-needed time to execute her shots. 

She broke through with her first Grand Slam title at last year’s US Open and she made a run to the 2022 French Open Final. Gauff added a semifinal appearance in the Australian Open earlier this year, so she has become a fixture in the latter stages of Grand Slams. She recently passed Caroline Wozniacki for the most WTA 1000 wins before turning 21, and Onorato thinks Gauff can take another step forward in the French Open. 

“Gauff’s performances on clay have been particularly impressive, with deep runs in several tournaments this season,” Onorato told SportsLine. “Her tenacity and skill make her a dark horse who could surprise many by advancing deep into the second week of the competition.” You can see who else to back here.

How to make 2024 French Open predictions

Onorato has thoroughly studied the women’s draw and has identified three more futures plays, including one on a longshot that would pay more than 20-1. He’s only sharing his analysis, and all of his women’s French Open picks and best bets, at SportsLine.

So where does all the value lie in the women’s 2024 French Open, and what longshot is a must-back? Visit SportsLine now to see Onorato’s best futures bets for the women’s draw, all from the tennis expert, and find out.
