Two former No. 1 players looking for their third career grand slam title will face off on Saturday when Naomi Osaka and Victoria Azarenka meet in the 2020 U.S. Open women's final at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Flushing, N.Y. The 22-year-old Osaka has won 10 straight matches. She won the U.S. Open title in 2018. Meanwhile the 31-year-old Azarenka has won 11 consecutive matches. She'll be making her third appearance in the U.S. Open final but her first since 2013. She is 0-for-2 in those finals. The match is set to begin at 4 p.m. ET.
William Hill lists Osaka as a -175 favorite (risk $175 to win $100) in the latest Osaka vs. Azarenka odds, with the Azarenka listed at +138 (risk $100 to win $138) as the underdog. You can also pick whether Osaka will cover the 2.5-game spread and how many sets the match will last, among other wagering options.

An uncanny international women's tennis guru, Mair enters the 2020 U.S. Open women's final on a mind-blowing streak. Last year, he told SportsLine readers to bet Bianca Andreescu (20-1) to win the title, the year before he had Osaka (32-1) and in 2017 he had Madison Keys (9-2). That's right -- he has predicted three straight outright winners with big payouts.
Morever, anyone tailing his outright picks and in-tournament bets is up a staggering $12,305 over that span.
Now, Mair has broken down the latest U.S. Open 2020 women's final odds and released his coveted best bets. Head to SportsLine to see them.
Top 2020 U.S. Open women's final predictions
One huge shocker: Mair is not expecting a straight-sets victory by either Osaka or Azarenka.
"It is impossible not to be impressed with the form of both players," Mair tells SportsLine. "This match is a repeat final from the Premier 5 event held at the same venue two weeks ago. That match was uncontested due to a hamstring injury for Osaka."
He adds, "I think this match could go the distance."
