Betting Predictions For 2019 Men and Women Wimbledon
Every Grand Slam is highly coveted, but there's something about the Wimbledon Championships that just means a little more.
Perhaps it's the centuries worth of history or the all-grass court, but the London hallmark stands on its own. Now that the tournament semi-finals are almost underway, here are the betting favorites, per online sportsbooks:
- Serena Williams (-120)
- Novak Djokovic (-165)
Full Wimbledon odds 2019 for both the men and women's bracket are below. Let's preview each side and make our betting predictions:
Wimbledon Men's Odds
You shouldn't be surprised at which three male players have the best Wimbledon betting odds — it's a familiar brunch, plus one longshot. The best lines to win the tournament goes as follows:
- Novak Djokovic (-165)
- Rafael Nadal (+300)
- Roger Federer (+350)
- Roberto Bautista Agut (+3300)
One of the "Big Three" — as the Djokovic, Nadal, and Federer grouping has come to be known — has won every single Wimbledon final since 2003 aside from two (both of which won by Andy Murray).
Federer has the most titles with eight, however, only two of those have come this decade. Djokovic is next with four, three of those coming in the past five years. Finally, Nadal has two, the last of which came from 2010.
You can pencil in Djokovic into the final round. As the one seed, he draws No. 23 Bautista Agut up next. The reigning champion Djokovic is an overwhelming -1200 to advance in the semi-finals and we're not going to waste your time playing devil's advocate for the underdog. Bank on Novak to advance.
But the two versus three seed matchup, Federer versus Nadal, is far from a sure bet. Wagering lines reflect that as Nadal is the slight favorite at -140 to advance, while Federer is +110. Despite the two's dominance over the sport this century, this will be their first meeting at Wimbledon since the 2008 final, won by Nadal in an all-time classic.
When picking between two all-time greats, you're better off looking at recent history than breaking down their individual game. The question to ask yourself, who has more confidence entering Friday?
For us, it has to be Nadal. He just beat Federer, in straight sets no less, at last month's French Open and that shouldn't be overlooked.
That means a Djokovic-Nadal title match is in store for us come Sunday. Oh, boy! The all-time series has Djokovic just barely ahead at 28-26 over Nadal. In tournament finals, Djokovic is 15-11 over his rival. To go even deeper, in Wimbledon matchups alone, Djokovic has won four of six meetings.
That history is why we're picking Djokovic to win back-to-back titles. He'll also be aided by an easier path through the tournament. It's going to take every ounce of energy for Nadal to outlast Federer, but then to expect him to somehow muster more two days later and defeat Djokovic?
Yeah, we're betting against that happening.
Pick: Djokovic (-165)
Wimbledon Women's Odds
Let's shift gears to the ladies side. With the semifinals beginning on Thursday, here are the current Wimbledon odds at winning for each remaining player:
- Serena Williams (-120)
- Simona Halep (+185)
- Elina Svitolina (+650)
- Barbora Strycova (+1200)
All eyes on the sport's GOAT, Serena, as she chases history. Williams is at a whopping 23 career Grand Slam titles — seven of them coming at Wimbledon — and one away from tying Margaret Court's all-time mark. Standing in her way during Thursday's semifinals is the unseeded Strycova.
Three times Williams and Strycova have met before and all three ended with a Serena victory, the last coming in the 2017 Australian Open in straight sets. We feel strongly that Williams can advance past the 33-year-old Czech.
Strycova has had a fairytale run thus far, advancing further in a major than ever before, however, the clock will strike midnight come Thursday.
Seven-seeded Halep vs. eight Svitolina should be a lot closer of a matchup. Svitolina leads the career series 4-3, but Halep won the most recent matchup earlier this year.
This is a real toss-up but Halep gets the advantage based off experience. She's been in one big match after another, most famously winning the 2018 French Open. Lack of experience will be the undoing of 24-year-old Svitolina.
This leads to a must-see showdown between Williams and Halep in the finals. The latter is the polar opposite of Serena — ten years young and a forgettable 5-foot-7 figure. However, the former No. 1 player in the world, with a reign of a whopping 64 weeks, is nothing to overlook.
We're giving the slight edge to Halep. She'll have nothing to lose with so much pressure on Williams to make history. While Serena has never been one to crumble under the spotlight, we're more worried about her health.
The 37-year-old has been hampered by injuries all-year long. That absence will impact her negatively as the more fresh Halep spoils the moment and wins.
Pick: Halep (+185)
