      Novak Djokovic: $2 at BetEasy
      John Millman: $67 at BetEasy

11am AEST – Thursday, September 6 – Arthur Ashe Stadium, New York

WHAT happened to the script?

Novak Djokovic was supposed to face Roger Federer this Thursday in a blockbuster US Open quarter-final clash.

Instead, the Serb’s next opponent is a 29-year-old journeyman man who has never before passed the fourth round of a grand slam.

John Millman stunned the galleries at Arthur Ashe Stadium on Tuesday with a 3-6, 7-5, 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (7-3) win over one of the game’s all-time greats.

It was a nightmare result for punters worldwide, including one poor sod who lost a whopping $35,000 after loading up on Federer at $1.02 odds.

Nevertheless, online bookmakers are forecasting an easy night for Djokovic.

The Serb is paying $1.05 at most bookies, even though Sportsbet.com.au reports that more than 87 per cent of the money is on the underdog.

“Punters can’t get enough of Millman and he’s being backed off the board to cause another shock against the Joker,” said Sportsbet’s Will Byrne.

The Australian, ranked 55 in the world, is at $11 to reach the semis and long odds of $67 to snatch the title.

Novak Djokovic betting tips

The bookies are right: Djokovic should sweep the floor with Millman. However, the Serbian star has not exactly glided through to the quarters, and the opposing camp will take heart from the fact he dropped sets to both Marton Fucsovics and Tennys Sandgren is the early rounds. The match betting offers little value for any but the biggest spenders, so look to the set markets, double bets and alternative handicaps.

Best bets for John Millman

Millman has played Djokovic once before on the ATP Tour, and it did not go well. That was at Queen’s earlier this year when the Serb won 6-2, 6-1 before taking out Wimbledon. But the Aussie battler is in career-best form and cannot be lacking in confidence after stopping the Fed Express in its tracks, so there is money to be made in backing him to take a set or two off the Joker.
