We’ve now reached the part of the French Open where the magnitude of everything has ramped up and the grind is real. Some of the riff raff has been weeded out which means our options for tennis DFS become slimmer but more reliable. DraftKings and FanDuel are carrying similar offerings to what we’ve seen all week with DraftKings only carrying a limited number of matches while FanDuel has them all. Should make for a great day of tennis all around so let’s make some Tennis DFS picks!

DraftKings & FanDuel Tennis DFS Picks for French Open | June 5
Iga Swiatek ($10,100/$22)
Opponent: Anett Kontaveit
Iga Swiatek is a big time favorite once again facing the WTA’s 31st ranked player, Anett Kontaveit. Swiatek has ran through her last 8 opponents dropping just one set along the way. So far throughout the French she has only let one opponent win more than one game which leads to some giant scores for tennis DFS. That dominance has led to a big-time domination rating of 1.23 on the year and a big time Elo Advantage (76% Win probability).
After a ridiculous 2020 that saw the young Pol’ win the French she has actually improved as a player with a greater job of holding service and winning 1st and 2nd serve points. Kontaveit is a level-headed opponent but even she will be overwhelmed by Swiatek’s ball-striking and precision.Check out the AwesemoOdds home page for more sports betting content, including more picks and predictions.
Ons Jabeur ($8,900/$20)
Opponent: Magda Linette
It’s not fair to comp anyone to the previously mentioned Swiatek but like her Ons Jabeur is also a considerable favorite across the industry. Per the Elo Ratings, and odds, Jabeur is a near 75% favorite to advance against Magda Linette. On FanDuel, which heavily depends on winning to hit upside, she is a fantastic play at just $20 and even at $8900 on DraftKings she’s cheaper than odds would implicate.
These two have faced off on clay once with Jabeur taking it in straight sets. I don’t expect Linette to keep up this newly found form with her history of struggles on the surface beyond this match.
Others: Jannik Sinner, Diego Schwartzman, Lorenzo Musetti, Sofia Kenin
