Championship tennis only comes to the U.S. once a year, so it's an exciting chance to see the Men's U.S. Open Champion crowned. However, the event's unique nature isn't the only reason that Matcovich believes it will inspire a good amount of betting.

"People who go to the U.S. Open are in a higher income range, so you'll have people with a lot of disposable income," he said. "They can go there not just to watch, but also to bet."
