The French Open will start in a matter of hours and the favorites are not going to be cut any slack by the hosts. They will play in Day 1 and are in for a tough test, which means that this is the last opportunity for punters to place ante-post wagers on the Grand Slam. A couple of favorites have emerged alongside the perennial favorites and Ladbrokes has great odds for those who want to bet early on.

Assuming you like the chances for Djokovic to prevail, you should definitely check out Ladbrokes, as the bookie has boosted the odds. Under normal circumstances, the Serbian player would be priced at 1.75 to lift the trophy, but new customers are going to enjoy juicy odds of 5/1 for the same outcome. The only condition is to act now and bet prior to kickoff, while making a qualifying deposit.

This is more or less the same request that Paddy Power makes to prospective customers, as they have a limited period of time to cash in on spectacular odds. The bookie is even more generous and will increase the investment 6 times if Djokovic wins the French Open.
