We're less than two weeks away from the 2020 Australian Open, but the oddsmakers already have their sights set on the men's tournament heavy betting favorites.

Australian Open Men's Odds 2020

Novak Djokovic leads the entire men's field by the odds to win the 2020 Australian Open at +125, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Not too far behind Djokovic, Rafael Nadal currently sits at +480 with the second-best odds to win it all.

One of the bigger surprises in the early odds is that Roger Federer (+1200) sits multiple spots behind the top-2 names in the odds. Russia's Daniil Medvedev currently boasts the third-best odds to win this year's Australian Open at +900, but there's still another name separating him from Federer.

Stefanos Tsitsipas is sitting with +1000 odds, ahead of Federer for the fourth-best odds to win it all this year. While Federer sits behind him with the fifth-best odds (+1200), there is a rather sharp decline beyond that fifth spot. Dominic Thiem (+2300) and Nick Kyrgios (+3000) round out the top seven players by the odds.

Each of these players' odds are bound to change as we head closer to Jan. 20 and the start of the 2020 Australian Open, but for the time being, we're looking at a rather intriguing current field as far as the betting odds go.
