Betting Guide for the 2017 Wimbledon Championships

A foursome of feared veterans – each of whom has multiple Grand Slam titles to their credit – is head and shoulders above the field on the odds to win the men’s draw of the 2017 Wimbledon tournament, which gets underway next week at the All England Club in London.

Roger Federer is the big favorite at +200 at the Bovada Sportsbook, and for good reason. While many tennis fans feared the 35-year old may be on his last legs during a Grand Slam drought spanning 2013 through 2016, Federer won his 18th major title at the Australian Open earlier this year.

Federer also claimed his ninth Gerry Weber Open title two days ago, a tune-up for Wimbledon, so the game’s greatest player may just be peaking ahead of its greatest tournament.

Wimbledon’s defending champion and hometown hero Andy Murray (+350) is Federer’s closest competition, followed by career nemesis and recent French Open winner Rafael Nadal (+400).

And despite a tumultuous 2017 in which he seems to have lost that winning touch, Novak Djokavic (+600) is the only other player offered at odds better than 13 to 1.

Betting on the women’s side of the bracket isn’t quite as stratified, but Bovada does have two players well ahead of the rest.

Petra Kvitova (+500) has won Wimbledon twice before (2011 and 2014), but in the wake of last December’s horrifying home invasion and knife attack – which resulted in nerve damage to her left hand – the Czech superstar has been on the comeback trail. She bowed out in the second round of the French Open in her first Grand Slam since the incident, but took the title at the Aegon Classic last Sunday in a return to form.

Karolina Pliskova (+550) shares Czech heritage with Kvitova, and status as co-favorite in a sense, but the 25-year old has never escaped the second round at Wimbledon. She is coming off a quarterfinal run at the French Open, however, followed by a semifinal appearance at the Australian Open, so Pliskova’s first Grand Slam title may simply be a matter of time.

The betting board for the women’s draw only lists one other player at better than 10 to 1 odds (Garbine Muguruza / +900), so it looks to be a duel between countrywomen when the women take the courts.
