Wimbledon Preview Odds and Betting Offers
The third of the four tennis majors, Wimbledon, is just around the corner and out of all the big tennis competitions, this is the one that has an extra special focus in the UK. This is because we host the event, and with fantastic wall to wall coverage for fans, you won’t miss a shot this summer.
The men’s event is dominated by a handful of big names, but one missing this season is Andy Murray who continues to slowly come back from what was expected to be a career ending injury. He played doubles last week and is expected to play in the double’s tournament at Wimbledon, where he will, of course, draw a huge amount of attention.
When it comes to the women’s event, this looks to be wide open as is usually the case. You can probably name 20 women, and it wouldn’t be a huge shock if any of them won Wimbledon, which shows both the strength of the game right now and how competitive the game is.
Many sports fans tune into the coverage across the two weeks to enjoy what is on show, and with many memorable moments each year, expect to see more in 2019.
Wimbledon TV Coverage & Dates
The first round of Wimbledon begins on Monday, July 1st, with both the men’s and women’s events beginning on that day. The women’s final is scheduled for Saturday 13th July, while the men’s final will round off the tournament a day later on Sunday 14th July.
We will have play every single day between those dates, with the exception of the middle Sunday, which is Wimbledon’s traditional day off in the middle of the two weeks. This will be used is we have bad weather, although looking at the forecast that looks unlikely to be the case.
Coverage for those in the UK is nothing short of excellent, with BBC having full rights to show the event. They cover the main courts on BBC1 and BBC2, while they also have further coverage behind the red button if you want to watch some of the smaller courts. Online you can view even more through the BBC Sport website, and as far as events go, Wimbledon is one of the best in terms of live action for fans, so be sure to tune in if you want to watch things unfold.
Wimbledon Men’s Preview
Three players dominate the tournament this year, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. All three have tasted success before and will go down as three of the greatest players to ever play the game, so it is no surprise to see them at the top of the betting, with a big gap to the rest of the field. Anything other than either of these three winning the tournament would be seen as a huge shock over the next two weeks.
With Federer slowly coming towards the end of his career and Nadal better on the clay surface, it is no surprise to see Djokovic as the current favourite. He has four Wimbledon titles to his name, and it looks as though a fifth could be on the horizon.
Wimbledon Women’s Preview
This looks wide open, as you would expect from the women’s event. There is a mix of youth and experience here and it will be interesting to see which comes out on top. Serena Williams needs no introduction and she will be relishing coming back to Wimbledon, the home of many of her successes. Alongside her, Angelique Kerber knows what it takes to win here after winning the event last year, and she should go close once again as she aims for back to back titles.
World number 1 Ashleigh Barty is someone trying to take the women’s game and really dominate it and winning this tournament could be the start of that. Elsewhere, Karolina Pliskova and Naomi Osaka cannot be discounted from this.
The women’s event is wide open, with a whole host of them in with chances but it may prove best to go with the up and coming talent, and the current world number one, Ashleigh Barty.
Wimbledon Betting Odds
It is no surprise to see Novak Djokovic at the head of the betting market for the men’s event as he looks to land his 5th Wimbledon title. He is coming into the event looking good and has shown his liking for the grass court on many occasions before.
Behind Djokovic and rounding out the main three we have Roger Federer at 3/1 and Rafael Nadal at 6/1, both of whom will be popular with punters who are looking to take on Djokovic. As for the rest of the field, it is 20/1 and bigger on those, with names such as Marin Cilic, Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev classed as being lively outsiders and players who may be able to upset the big guns if they perform to their very best and their opponent falters a little.
At 5/1 the field and with seven players priced up at less than 20/1, the women’s outright market has a far more open feel to it. The players are led by Ashleigh Barty at 5/1, with Karolina Pliskova just behind her at 6/1.
Rounding off the four players at single-figure prices are two very recognisable names, both priced at 8/1. Firstly we have the winner from last season Angelique Kerber and secondly, we have Serena Williams, one of the icons of the women’s game over the past 20 years.
Petra Kvitova, Naomi Osaka and Simona Halep are the final three players less than 20/1, and plenty will fancy those three at double figure odds. Just behind the front seven in the betting, we have Johanna Konta, who is the main British hope in both the men’s and women’s tournaments this season. She will get huge support from the home crowd in the absence of Andy Murray from the men’s singles and has the ability to get through a few rounds.
