Novak Djokovic is the consensus pick of oddsmakers to win Wimbledon, with Andy Murray second in line and Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal in a dead heat further behind them.
Monday Musings: Should Djokovic Be Seeded No. 1 at Wimbledon?
($100 wagered on Djokovic would net a $175 profit, while $100 wagered on Murray would net $300.)
Here's a look at Bet365's current odds for the men's singles field:
Of note is the fact that Grigor Dimitrov has moved up to a 20/1 spot, which places him as more likely to win it all than top 10 players Tomas Berdych and David Ferrer.
On the women's side, Serena Williams is the strong favorite, followed by Maria Sharapova. Victoria Azarenka has moved up alongside Simona Halep and Petra Kvitova as third favorite, while Li Na is next in line, followed by youngster Eugenie Bouchard, grass guru Sabine Lisicki and youngster Garbine Muguruza. Seems strange that Li, the No. 2 player in the world and a three-time Wimbledon quarterfinalist with a vastly improved net game, would fall below Halep and a sure-to-be-rusty Azarenka, but hey, oddsmakers don't always get it right. Also a little strange by our count is the fact that Agnieszka Radwanska, a former Wimbledon finalist and a semifinalist last year comes in at 20/1, behind all the aforementioned players...
($100 wagered on Serena would net $120 in profit, while $100 on Sharapova would net $500.)
