Danielle Collins vs Iga Swiatek prediction and odds: Australian Open 2024

In a repeat of the semi-final from 2022, this second-round contest for the 2024 Australian Open sees the top seed, Swiatek, taking on the unseeded American, Collins. This will be the 6th time these two have met on tour, and it should be a great game to watch. But what are the best tennis predictions today for this game? Let me show you.

Our favourite Danielle Collins vs Iga Swiatek predictions

It goes without saying that as the top seed and world number one, Iga Swiatek is favoured to win this match. However, Danielle Collins has beaten her before, and this victory actually occurred at the Australian Open in 2022 – adding an interesting twist to this one. 

As for my predictions, these are listed below:

Under 17.5 games @ 17/20 (1.85)

Although Collins has beaten Swiatek in the past, there is a very specific reason why I feel this market is a good choice. In 2023, Swiatek beat Collins on two separate occasions where the American won just one game. Both of these matches were played on hard courts too.

Swiatek -6.5 games handicap @ 4/6 (1.67)

Given that I am leaning towards a comfortable victory for Iga Swiatek, it’s logical to follow this prediction with a -6.5 games handicap in Swiatek’s favour. Furthermore, Swiatek managed to score a 5 game spread in her first-round match against a previous champion, Sofia Kenin. 

And because Collins went three sets with Kerber in round one, I can see a clear difference in current form and level for these two.

Danielle Collins vs Iga Swiatek odds

As the highest-ranked of all the Australian Open seeds, it’s no surprise to see a win probability of 94.10% for Swiatek. As for Danielle Collins, her chance of victory is just 10%.

Swiatek seeking revenge over Collins in Melbourne

As we approach this second-round match for the 2024 Australian Open, I’d advise reading the following previews before placing your wagers:

Danielle Collins preview

Although Danielle Collins is ranked 62 in the world right now, she’s been much higher in the past. In fact, she was a top 10 player just a couple of years ago, and she’s a previous finalist at the Australian Open. So she can play some serious tennis, and she has beaten Swiatek in Melbourne in the past.

Iga Swiatek preview

Although Swiatek has lost to Collins in the past, she has also dismantled the American twice in the previous season. Adding to that, she is the world number one right now, which reflects the kind of form she is in. And for me, since she’s never won the Australian Open, I feel she is on a mission to change that in 2024.

Collins vs Swiatek head to head

The head-to-head between these two stands at 4-1 in favour of Iga Swiatek. As for the single win for Collins, this came at the 2022 Australian Open in the semi-finals. But following that result, Swiatek has beaten her three times running – all coming in the 2023 season.
