With Novak Djokovic narrowly edging out Roger Federer in a historic finish at Wimbledon, FanDuel Sportsbook already has odds up for the outright winner of the US Open.

Given what's happened at Wimbledon, it's no surprise that Djokovic (+125) and Federer (+650) have the first and third-best odds to win the trophy in September.

Rafael Nadal has the second-best odds to win at +470. It figures that those three are at the top of the odds list, as they have combined for 11 US Open titles. Djokovic is the defending champion at the US Open, and Nadal won in 2017.

Federer is tied for the most all-time US Open wins (five), and could be the sole owner of that spot if he can take care of business this year. However, he hasn't won since 2008.

While it would be shocking if at least one of those three wasn't in the final, there is still definitely value in some of the long shots. Even though he hasn't been his best self as of late, Andy Murray currently checks in at +3600. Murray won in 2012, so he could provide some decent value here.

Djokovic, Nadal and Federer deserve to be the favorites, as they have the largest track record of success of anyone in this field. However, if you're looking for value, taking a shot with someone like Murray could end up paying huge dividends.
