The Wimbledon betting lines are just a week away from being contested, and here at CappersMall, we are already looking at some of the best men’s tennis odds on the board for the third Grand Slam event of the year on the grass courts of the All-England Club!
Of course, it should go as no shock whatsoever that Novak Djokovic (+175) is the favorite on the odds to win Wimbledon. He has made it to five straight Grand Slam finals, winning four of the five, and he is simply the best player in the world at the moment. On the clay courts, he struggled at the French Open at times, but now, Djokovic is going to be back on grass, where he is one of the most dominating players that the men’s tennis has ever seen.
Second in line, seemingly as always, is Rafael Nadal (+285). This clearly isn’t the surface that the clay court specialist prefers playing on, but the seven-time French Open champion is definitely not a stranger to these courts in London. Nadal won this tournament in 2008 and 2010, and he has been able to really be a force at Wimbledon historically. However, what we have seen out of the Spaniard over the course of the last two years is that he has struggled to take care of business against Djokovic and some of the other top players when he isn’t on the clay courts, and that could come back to really hurt him when push comes to shove in this tournament.
This might also be one of the last shots that Roger Federer (+515) has of winning a Grand Slam event. Federer is going to have to run into likely both Djokovic and Nadal on the road to beating the Wimbledon odds this time around, and history hasn’t treated him well when he has had to do that in recent years. Federer was a semifinalist at the French Open this year, but he just wasn’t able to survive against Djokovic to get to the finale. Still, this is the tournament that the Swiss master has dominated over the years. Federer won this title from 2003-2007, and he also won in 2009. Federer was a finalist here at the All-England Club eight straight times, and that is a mark that no player is likely to touch any time in the near future.
The man that the entire country of England is going to be pulling for though, is Andy Murray (+1225). Murray has really been one of the best men’s tennis players in the world for quite some time, but he is still searching for that elusive Grand Slam title to add to his mantle. An Englishman hasn’t won this tournament during the Open Era, and you have to go back to 1936 to find the last man from Britain to lift the Wimbledon title. Murray knows that this is as good of a chance as he has ever had of winning Wimbledon in his homeland, but he also knows, off of the quarterfinals loss to David Ferrer at the French Open, that his window of opportunity might be slamming shut as we speak with some of these other fantastic players on the ATP Tour still around.
There are only five other players, Jo Wilfried Tsonga, Tomas Berdych, Milos Raonic, Juan Martin Del Potro, an John Isner that are less than 175 to 1 on the odds to win Wimbledon at 5Dimes Sportsbook. Other notables down the line include David Ferrer (+27500), Andy Roddick (+35000), Mardy Fish (+60000), Robin Soderling (+100000), and Juan Carlos Ferrero (+100000).
