US Open Final: Murray the best bet in side markets

His Olympic win might be evidence that Murray is now capable of winning when it matters

Looking to continue his good record in a profitable column, Jack Houghton thinks that Andy Murray can serve the most aces on route to serving up a grand slam win in New York. And given how closely matched Djokovic and Murray are, it's more than likely that we'll see a tie-break, too.

I’ve written before about the chances of Murray breaking his grand-slam hoodoo, but one thing the statistics will fail to account for is his Olympic win. It’s clear that many players now view that title as at least equally important as a grand slam win, so perhaps we need to take Murray’s performance in August as evidence of a player now capable of winning when it matters.
