2018 Wimbledon Betting Favorite
Roger Federer +190
Last year Federer won his unprecedented eighth Wimbledon title. He is the clear-cut favorite to win his ninth. He is coming off a loss at the Gerry Weber Open which would have been his 99th win making a win at Wimbledon #100.
He is the top Wimbledon seed.
Rafael Nadal +750
Nadal won his 11th French Open title by beating Austrian Dominic Thiem in straight sets in early June. He has notched 17 Grand Slam wins, three short of Roger Federer’s all-time men’s record.
Nadal is the No. 2 Wimbledon seed.
Novak Djokovic +575
‘I wouldn’t say I’m a contender, you know, for a trophy or anything like that,’ 12th-seeded Djokovic said about his odds at winning Wimbledon. The low expectations came after losing at the Fever-Tree Championships.
Is Djokovic joking around or have recent struggles on the court taken their toll?
2018 Wimbledon Contenders
Alexander Zverev +2000
The world no. 3 injured his left hamstring at the French Open during his loss to Dominic Thiem in the quarter-finals.
"Normally it takes about four weeks for this kind of injury to heal, but it took nine days. At first, I feared not being able to play Halle and Wimbledon at all," said Zverev on Sunday. "Today, I trained properly for the first time and it was ok."
Andy Murray +2500
Things are looking up for Murray. The two-time Wimbledon champion had hip surgery in January. He beat Stan Wawrinka for his first win since LAST year’s Wimbledon. The win came in the first round of the Nature Valley International at Eastbourne.
Not everyone is as hopeful. John McEnroe warned the Brit he is risking “semi-humiliation” for returning so quickly for the buzz of a major event.
2018 Wimbledon Betting Long Shot
Milos Raonic +3300
32nd-ranked Raonic has won eight career ATP titles and reached a career-high No. 3 in the world rankings in November 2016.
What makes the Canadian a long shot? First, he missed the French Open last month with an undisclosed injury. Most recently he withdrew from the Queen’s Club grass-court tennis tournament with a right pectoral strain.
Raonic: "Unfortunately I have sustained a strain to my right pectoral muscle. This happened on the second to last point of the match, and as a result I am not able to continue with the tournament. I'm really disappointed as I was playing well and I love this tournament." pic.twitter.com/1vNg8AB5f2
