Betting on Wimbledon at Bet365
All eyes will be on the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for the next two weeks with Wimbledon starting. The tournament is one of the four Grand Slams and is the most popular and prestigious of them all. Andy Murray is the defending champion on the Men’s side and has won the title twice and the women’s defending champion Serena Williams will not be participating because of pregnancy and that leads to a wide-open field on the ladies side.
The best place to go to wager on Wimbledon is Bet365 with many different kinds of betting options as well as bonuses and promotions the reputable sportsbook offers.
Bet365 has Outright Betting for Wimbledon and so much more such as full pre-match and in-play betting coverage of all matches from the tournament, many proposition bets, other types betting options, and the best odds online. Bet365 also offers their customers live streaming so you can bet on the tennis action as it takes place.
Live streaming is available around the world, but it not available in the countries of Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Finland, Italy, Norway, Sweden and the United States. The leading sportsbook also offers a unique Tennis Accumulator Bonus, which is bonus up to 50% on winning accumulators and is available on selected markets for singles as well as doubles matches.
The men’s draw at Bet365 is not really wide open with the Big 4 of Roger Federer 2/1 (3.00) defending champion Andy Murray 9/2 (5.50), Rafael Nadal 9/2 (5.50) and Novak Djokovic at 5/1 (6.00) having the best betting odds. You can see these guys are the major favorites not only because one of these four have won Wimbledon for the last 14 years, but the player with the 5th best odds is Marin Cilic at 16/1 (17.00).
Federer is the 3rd seed in the tournament and he is tied with Pete Sampras for the most Wimbledon titles with seven and won a Wimbledon tune-up at the Halle Open. 2nd seed Rafael Nadal is fresh off his dominating performance in winning his 10th French Open title. Andy Murray is the world number one and the top seed, but he is not in top form and has dealt with a hip injury that forced him to pull out of two warm-up matches at the Hurlingham Club.
In the years Murray won Wimbledon in 2013 and 2016 he also won the tune-up Queen’s title twice, but this season he was upset in the first round losing to the 90th ranked player in the world. That was his only tournament match on grass this season. Novak Djokovic has won Wimbledon three times, but does current not hold any of the Grand Slam titles and he has not been in top form this season, which prompted a coaching change. Can any other player such as Stan Wawrinka, Milos Raonic, or Cilic break though and challenge the top four? Not likely and the odds at bet365 reflect that, but anything can happen.
With Serena Williams missing out on Wimbledon this year it really opens up the women’s draw. Bet365 odds have Karolina Pliskova 9/2 (5.50), Petra Kvitova 9/2 (5.50), Johanna Konta 12/1 (13.00) Venus Williams 14/1 (15.00) and Garbine Muguruza 14/1 (15.00) as the players with the best odds. Pliskova has the game for grass and is the 3rd seed, but has never been past the second round at Wimbledon. Kvitova is only the 11th seed, but she has won Wimbledon twice and she won a tune-up on grass in Birmingham.
Johanna Konta looks to be the first British female winner since 1977, but comes into the tournament with back issues, which may present problems and she is the 7th seed. Venus Williams is a past champion and the 10th seed, but may be distracted since she has been blamed by a police report in a car crash, where there was a fatality. Garbine Muguruza still has pretty good odds and she was a Wimbledon finalist in 2015, but he has not had a great season, is out of the top 10, and lost an Eastbourne tune-up 6-0 6-1.
Bet365 has all the betting action you need and more and one of the more interesting bets is the mixed doubles tandem of Andy Murray and Johanna Konta, who are long shots to win the title at 55/1 even though each is in the top four to win the singles titles.
From tons of betting options and live streaming to live betting and many proposition bets Bet365 has you covered for all the Wimbledon action, which takes place from July 3-16. Will Federer break Sampras’ record for Wimbledon titles? Who will step up on the women’s side with Serena out? Both questions will be answered in the next couple of weeks at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in the premier Grand Slam of them all in Wimbledon.
