French Open 2023 Badminton Odds

Before we get into our badminton French Open 2023 betting tips, let’s take a look at who’s most likely to win this tournament. Unfortunately, bookmakers in France are not offering outright betting odds this week; however, in the absence of 2023 French Open badminton odds, here’s a look at the top five seeds in each event:

Men’s Singles Favorites

  • Viktor Axelsen (French)
  • Anthony Sinisuka Ginting (Indonesia)
  • Kodai Naraoka (Japan)
  • Kunlavut Vitidsarn (Thailand)
  • Jonatan Christie (Indonesia)

Despite his dip in form, albeit sparked by injury, Viktor Axelson still leads the seeds at the French Open this week. Behind him is Anthony Sinisuka Ginting, quarter-finalist last week, followed by Kodai Naraoka who crashed out in the first round of the Denmark Open, as did the remaining two seeds, Kunlavut Vitisarn and Jonatan Christie.

Women’s Singles Favorites

  • An Se-young (South Korea – withdrew)
  • Akane Yamaguchi (Japan – withdrew)
  • Chen Yufei (China)
  • Tai Tzu-ying (Chinese Taipei)
  • He Bingjiao (China)

Again, An Se-young and Akane Yamaguchi are sitting this one out, making Chen Yufei the top seed in this tournament despite only officially being the No.3 seed. Last week’s champion leads the likes of Tai Tzu-ying and He Bingjiao as other favorites at the French Open, both of which made the quarter-finals in Odense.

2023 French Open Betting Predictions

We’ve broken down the badminton betting odds and come up with the top three predictions to make this week. Here are the badminton French Open 2023 betting tips to make ahead of this tournament:

Jonatan Christie to Beat Kenta Nishimoto @ 1.50 (1/2)

The Denmark Open was a disappointing week for Jonatan Christie, who would have been hoping for a much better showing in front of a home crowd in Odense. However, the No.5 seed is likely to bounce back strongly this week, given how out of character such a dip in form is–remember, it wasn’t long ago that Christie won the Hong Kong Open, or the Indonesian Masters. Expect Nishimoto to put up good resistance, with this match likely going the distance as Christie squeezes through to rekindle some form late in the season.

Magnus Johannesen to Beat Anthony Sinisuka Ginting @ 4.00 (3/1)

Event Prediction

Upsets abounded last week at the Denmark Open, and we say they’ll continue here in France for some of the men’s seeds. Unfortunately for Anthony Sinisuka Ginting, we say yet again the Indonesian star will crash out in the first round. This time, we predict it will be at the hands of young Magnus Johannesen. The Dane lost early in his most recent tournament, however that was to be expected with a first-round clash against Viktor Axelsen. With nothing to lose and Ginting low on confidence, this is our top high odds betting tips for French Open 2023 men.

Fang Jie Gao to Beat Carolina Marin @ 7.00 (6/1)

Event Prediction
Fang Jie Gao to Beat Carolina Marin

Over in the women’s draw, the huge upset that we see playing out at the 2023 French Open is Carolina Marin crashing out in the first round. As unlikely as this result may seem on paper, here’s the reality: in every Super 750 tournament, a seed goes home in the first round. It’s just a matter of picking who it will be. Off the back of a deep run to the final last week, we say Marin will be arriving in France with her tank empty and is prone to an upset by the relatively innocuous Fang Jie Gao in the first round.

Back-to-back Super 750 tournaments are playing out on the BWF Tour this week, with players heading straight from Denmark to France to compete in the historic French Open. There were plenty of upsets last week, and we say we’ll see more over the coming days. Top of these will be Fang Jie Gao knocking out Carolina Marin in the first round for a lucrative 7.00 (6/1) return on this women’s 2023 French Open badminton prediction.
