The clay-court season is in full swing and the French Open is quickly approaching, making now a good time to examine the odds leaderboard.

The latest: Rafael Nadal is synonymous with the French Open, but the 14-time champion is out due to a hip injury. With the field opening up, Carlos Alcaraz's dominance on clay this season makes him the favourite to win at Roland Garros. In the women's draw, Iga Swiatek sits atop the leaderboard as a minus-odds option but a recent injury is casting some concern.

Here are the latest French Open odds.

Best men's French Open odds

The favourite: Carlos Alcaraz (+140)

Alcaraz's incredible performance on clay this year has him as the favourite to win the French Open.

The Spaniard is 20-2 on the surface after wins at Barcelona and Madrid. It marked the second time in as many years that Alcaraz won both legs of the Spanish double.

Alcaraz's impressive results on clay include victories over top talents like Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev.

Shocking would be an understatement, however, when describing his loss at the Italian Open. Alcaraz lost in straight sets to world No. 135 Fabian Marozsan in his second match at the tournament.

Considering how strong Alcaraz has been otherwise, it's fair to classify his stunning loss as a one-off.

Other men's French Open choices

Best value: Novak Djokovic (+220)

It's not often bettors can wager on Djokovic to win a tournament with odds this long.

Typically, the legendary tennis star is at minus odds or slightly above even money on an outright tourney market. An elbow injury, however, has sidelined the Serbian for most of the clay season.

Djokovic, a two-time winner at Roland Garros, did participate at the Italian Open, experiencing some ups and downs in a performance that led him to a quarterfinal appearance.

He lost to Holger Rune in three sets in the quarters, a result that had a major impact on Rune's odds to win the French Open.

Nadal followed Alcaraz and Djokovic on the odds board at +450 to win before he pulled out, making Rune the new No. 3 choice at +800.

Player to watch: Daniil Medvedev (+1,200)

The "hard-court specialist" is making major strides on clay, as evidenced by his performance at the Italian Open.

The Russian tennis star won the Masters 1000 event, topping Rune in straight sets to win the title. He also defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alexander Zverev at the tourney, earning some impressive wins in Rome.

Medvedev is 10-2 in the clay courts this year and has won two of the last four Masters 1000 events he's played in.

Maria Sakkari+3,000+3,000
Caroline Garcia+3,300+3,300

The favourite: Iga Swiatek (-125)

Swiatek's a sizeable favourite to win at Roland Garros but there's an argument to be made that she and Aryna Sabalenka are closer than the odds indicate.

Swiatek is 12-2 on clay this year, winning at Stuttgart while finishing as a finalist at the Madrid Open. She lost in the quarters at the Italian Open via walkover as she suffered a thigh injury in the second set. The details of her injury aren't available yet, making it fair to be concerned at the moment.

She's a two-time French Open winner, taking home two of the last three titles at the event.

Other women's French Open picks

Best value: Aryna Sabalenka (+350)

The gap between Sabalenka and Swiatek seems to be shrinking.

The former earned her first win over the latter on clay recently, besting the Polish star 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 in the final at the Madrid Open. The victory brought her career record against Swiatek to 3-5, scoring wins in two of their last three head-to-head meetings.

Sabalenka sports the same record on clay (9-1) as Swiatek while owning the most wins among all WTA competitors (29) this season. She won the first Grand Slam of the season, taking home the Australian Open.

Player to watch: Elena Rybakina (+550)

Rybakina is improving her performance on clay and her recent results against the two aforementioned players are why she's our longer-odds pick.

The Kazakhstani tennis star is 9-2 on clay this year and a solid 73-34 on the surface in her career. She put forward an excellent effort in Rome, claiming the Italian Open title.

She has faced off against Swiatek and Sabalenka five times, going 3-0 against the former and 1-1 against the latter.

There's a good chance that if someone other than Swiatek or Sabalenka wins this tournament, they'll have to beat them both. Rybakina has shown us that she's capable of doing so in 2023.
