Wimbledon Betting Favorite: Novak Djokovic +165

Djokovic last played at the French Open. He lost to Dominic Thiem in the semifinals, which prevented a gargantuan matchup against rival Rafael Nadal in the finals. Djokovic losing the French Open makes sense.

Novak has won only a single French Open. It happened in 2016. Contrast that to how many Wimbledon Championships he has won, four, and it makes sense why he’d be a strong +165 favorite over Rafa and Roger Federer to take the silver plate this year.

Novak deserves to be favored on the men’s side, no doubt, but he’s not a lock. Djokovic won back-to-back Wimbledon titles in 2014 and 2015. He won his first Wimbledon Championship in 2011. He won it last year, which means he had three years between his first silver plate and his second silver plate. He had another three years between his third silver plate and his fourth silver plate.

Djokovic can beat Nadal and Federer for the Wimbledon hardware. But, he’s not worth backing at the odds. It makes sense to turn our attention elsewhere for the smart play.

Wimbledon Betting Smart Pick: Rafael Nadal+525

Roger Federer can definitely win Wimbledon. Federer looked good at the French Open until he had to battle Rafa Nadal, the King of Clay. Federer does have a chance to exact revenge on Nadal if the two meet at Wimbledon. Federer’s odds aren’t as attractive as Nadal’s, though.

Not only that, but Nadal hasn’t played competitively since winning the French Open. He’s got his sights set on Wimbledon. The knock on Nadal is that he isn’t nearly as good on grass as he is on clay. Although that’s true, Nadal did win Wimbledon in 2008 and 2010.

He wants another silver plate. He might be due, and he dominated Federer at the French Open.

Wimbledon Betting Long Shot: Alexander Zverev+2500

Based on his best finish at Wimbledon, Round 4 in 2017, Alexander Zverev doesn’t seem to have much of a shot to beat Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, or Roger Federer. Guess what? He doesn’t have much of a chance!

But, that’s why Zverev is a longshot. He’s young, 22-years-old, and tall, 6′ 6″. He has a tendency to blow it in tournaments. Then again, he played Novak Djokovic extremely tough in the first set in the French Open quarterfinals. Zverev pushed Djokovic to a tiebreaker. Djokovic won 6-5, but Zverev showed he could play.

He isn’t a+2500 longshot to win Wimbledon for nothing. If you’re looking for a player that might have a chance with some luck, Zverev is that player.
