The women's 2023 Australian Open Final is set as No. 22 Elena Rybakina is set to go one-on-one with No. 5 Aryna Sabalenka. Rybakina advanced from the semifinals with a two-set victory over No. 24 Victoria Azarenka while Sabalenka also needed just two sets to defeat Magda Linette.

Rybakina vs Sabalenka Prediction & Pick

Although both women have performed well to reach this point, one has been as perfect as it gets. Sabalenka has yet to lose a single set, only losing more than three games twice. Meanwhile, Rybakina was taken to three sets by No. 12 Danielle Collins in Round 3 and has lost at least four games on six different occasions.

Both women are more than deserving of the tournament win, but I'm siding with Sabalenka. In addition to not losing a set in Melbourne this January, she's also a perfect 3-0 against Rybakina, defeating the 23-year-old Kazakh twice on hard courts.

It's going to be another back-and-forth affair, but look for Sabalenka to take home the title.

Winner: Aryna Sabalenka

Rybakina vs Sabalenka Best Bet

With the odds being as close as they are, taking Sabalenka outright at -124 odds is more than an acceptable betting option.

However, for anyone looking for more value, I see Sabalenka needing three sets to defeat Rybakina. While the former has defeated her opponent in each of the previous three meetings, each of those matchups was decided in three sets. With both women looking for their first Aussie Open victory, I wouldn't be shocked if it went the distance again.

Bet: Aryna Sabalenka to Win (-124) or Sabalenka in Three Sets (+290)
