2022 French Open men’s semifinals best bets – Friday, June 3

2022 French Open best bets - Men's SF

Rafael Nadal will look to advance to the French Open final for the 14th time in his incredible career with a win against Alexander Zverev this Friday night. Here’s our top play in that match and our pick in the Marin Cilic vs Casper Ruud matchup in the 2022 French Open men’s semifinals.

Alexander Zverev (+280) vs Rafael Nadal (-340)

Rafael Nadal upset Novak Djokovic 6-2, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 in the quarterfinals to advance into this semifinals match against Alexander Zverev. With fellow Spaniard Carlos Alcarez also getting upset in the quarterfinals, Nadal has now emerged as the clear favorite to win this tournament. He has already defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime and Djokovic to get to this point and will be heavily favored in both this match and the French Open final should he advance.

Considering that Alcarez was one of the favorites to win this event, Zverev’s 6-4, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 victory over him in the quarterfinals can’t be taken lightly. It’s also worth noting the Zverev owns a 3-1 advantage in his last four heads-up matches against Nadal. Our top play in this spot is to bet on this match to go OVER 3.5 sets. Nadal is just too good at Roland Garros to bet against, but Zverev isn’t likely to go down without a fight, so look for at least four sets to be necessary in this one.

Over 3.5 total sets


Marin Cilic (+200) vs Casper Ruud (-240)

Casper Ruud faced a red-hot player in top form in the quarterfinals and passed that test fairly easily with a 6-1, 4-6, 7-6, 6-3 win over Holger Rune. He’ll face another hot player in excellent form when he takes on Marin Cilic in the semifinals on Friday. Cilic has scored an impressive pair of upsets in the last two rounds with a victory over Daniil Medvedev in straight sets and a hard-fought 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-6 win over Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals.

Ruud holds a 2-0 advantage in heads-up play between these two players and has established himself as an excellent player on clay in recent years with an 89-35 career record on the surface. Cilic’s recent play suggests that this might be a competitive match, but Ruud is too strong to bet against at this price.
