Wimbledon betting

Wimbledon bettingAs the oldest tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon is renowned for its hallowed traditions: the all-white dress code for players, patrons scoffing on strawberries and cream, the Royal Box on Centre Court.

Since the Australian Open switched to synthetic surfaces in 1988, it is also the only Grand Slam which still uses grass courts.

Above all, however, Wimbledon is the most prestigious event on the international tennis circuit.

The tournament takes place over two weeks in late June and early July each year at the All England Club in London, which has hosted every staging of the tourney since its inauguration in 1877.

Back then it was only a men’s amateur competition, but now there are five annual Wimbledon titles up for grabs: the Gentlemen’s Singles, the Ladies’ Singles, the Gentlemen’s Doubles, the Ladies’ Doubles and the Mixed Doubles.

Who will ascend to glory at the All England Club this year?

Wimbledon 2018 men’s title odds

The 2017 Wimbledon Championships were all about Roger Federer, who did not drop a set while clinching his eighth men’s singles title. Every bookmaker on the planet has the Swiss master pegged for another triumph this year.

Novak DjokovicOld rivals Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic will be there or thereabouts if their bodies hold up, as will Rafael Nadal.

The big question is whether any of the young guns can break through. Alexander Zverev and Grigor Dimitrov could draw plenty of interest, while Nick Kyrgios has made no secret about his preference for Wimbledon over all other majors.

Big servers have made a habit of going deep at the All England Club, so keep an eye out for former finalists Marin Cilic and Milos Raonic. Argentine slugger Juan Martin del Potro is always a threat when fit and firing.

2018 Wimbledon women’s betting

Serena Williams may have missed the start of the season, but the queen of the women’s tennis tour should be back to full fitness by the time Wimbledon rolls around. The American superstar will almost certainly start the tournament as an overwhelming favourite.

Garbine Muguruza won it last year and looks like the best of the rest, with Karolina Pliskova, Maria Sharapova and two-time winner Petra Kvitova not far behind. Expect some solid support for Britain’s own Johanna Konta as well.

The slick grass of Wimbledon will bring a few heavy hitters into the mix. Coco Vandeweghe can do some damage when she gets it right, while Madison Keys could be primed for something special after reaching the US Open final in 2017.

Outrights/futures
Wimbledon futures markets are available all year round, allowing you to put money on the outright winner (as per above) when the odds are at their juiciest. You can also bet on who will reach the final and a number of other player specials in the months leading up to the tourney.

Match betting
Also called a head-to-head wager, this is your bread-and-butter tennis bet. Simply pick which of the two players (or teams, in doubles) you think will win the match – easy peasy.

Set and game markets
Who will win the first set? What will the final score be? Will there be more than 25 games in the match, or fewer? You can also place handicap bets for each player (e.g. if Jack Sock has a set handicap of -1.5, he needs to beat his opponent by at least two sets).

Tennis exotics
Grand Slam matches come with a wealth of players props and specials markets. You might bet on so-and-so to smash home a certain number of aces, or on such-and-such to go through the match without serving any double faults, and so on.
