To the surprise of few, Novak Djokovic is the favorite to win Wimbledon after his dominant display at the French Open.
Djokovic is playing as well as he has played over his career and will now go for his record 20th major championship in London over the next few weeks. The bracket works out heavily in Djokovic’s favor, avoiding all tough matchups with ranked players until the quarterfinals.
It is rare that a single competitor would be listed with minus odds for such a large tournament, but with the way Djokovic is playing right now, it is well deserved.
Two years ago, Djokovic won Wimbledon against Roger Federer in an epic match for the ages.

Despite her poor form as of late, Serena Williams is the betting favorite to win Wimbledon and capture her long sought after 24th major championship.
Unfortunately, there are plenty of other, younger women who will do anything in their power to stop her.
If the French Open is any indication of how this tournament will go, then there is no way to predict what will happen in London. However, without Naomi Osaka and now Simona Halep in the field, the door is more open for Williams than it has been in other tournaments.
Still, there are plenty of women who are capable of breaking through to capture the trophy.
Names like Aryna Sabalenka (+1100), Iga Swiatek (+1400), Bianca Andreescu (+2800), and Karolina Muchova (+4000) all pose a serious threat to win the tournament with great value on their pre-tournament odds.
Those looking to bet on tennis will likely be sweating out their picks once again in a highly volatile women’s bracket.
