Men’s Draw

Novak Djokovic is still the clear favorite on the board and he has done nothing to make me too nervous as my pick to win. I still think Joker has the most complete game to win on these grass courts and I think that is easily the most likely outcome at the end of the day.

If you haven’t bet on Djokovic yet, I still think there is time because he has the much easier draw as on now. I expect his biggest challenge before the finals to be against Milos Raonic, a big Canadian known for his powerful serve. I still like Novak in that spot and he will be a pretty significant favorite in the finals regardless of his opponent and you should get a good hedge number on the opponent them if you want that option.

The next two players on the board are the two legends, Nadal and Federer. I just would rather pass on these two because of their draw.

They have to play each other and then they will likely face off with Djokovic in the Finals, something that won’t provide great odds anyways. If you think one of these guys beats Djokovic in the final, I would avoid the risk and just wait to bet them in their matchups down the line.

Milos Raonic is a viable hedge play because I think he has a great road to Djokovic in the semis. Once he gets there, you can try to hedge out on Djokovic or just ride the big server and hope for the upset. He definitely has a shot to make things interesting with the elite service status.

The only longshot that I like still is Sam Querrey. Querrey is another big server and he has been great here at Wimbledon. Dropping only 2 sets so far.

He would have a major challenge on his hands with facing Rafa, Federer, and then Djokovic in back-to-back-to-back rounds to win, but he has the raw upside to pull of an upset or two and attempt to hedge out on the way at 50-1.

Women’s draw

The women’s draw has had a lot more chaos at the top of the seeding than the men and it has really opened the draw for Serena Williams to take over. Serena is still around +220 and I really like the bet at this point. We saw Barty lose earlier today, making her run a lot easier and I just think that William’s is set to cruise to the finals.

When you can get the favorite at +220 this late, I still think you just jump on it. Serena will almost definitely be favored in every matchup moving forward, giving you the opportunity to hedge out late . Also, the bracket is so wide open that just a few more upsets could REALLY make Serena’s odds skyrocket.

The only two players that I want in this draw besides Serena are Simona Halep and Elina Svitolina. Halep is the better player, but the odds very much reflect that, so I think I prefer Svitolina for the price of +1500 compared to Halep’s +350.

Both girls have only dropped one set all weekend and have gotten fantastic draws to the semifinals against each other. Svitolina was one. Crash course with Pliskova, who has been one of the hottest players of late, but she was upset earlier today, making Svitolina a much better play.

Halep is the only player left that will have relatively close odds if she were to face Serena, which would mean that the hedge would be a longer option that Svitolina, but Svitolina would be at 5 times the odds in the first place.

I really like all of these girls to have increased odds down the line, so I am fine with betting any and all 3 if you are so inclined. When you go to bet on Wimbledon, if you are looking for a great pay per head bookie location, check out www.a1pph.com
