Wimbledon Betting Tips: How To Pick A Winner
Picking a winner can generally be fairly easy when it comes to the men’s tennis Grand Slams. In essence, you have choice of three – Rafa, Novak or Roger.
However, there are plenty of matches throughout the tournament which are always worth betting on. There are a number of things to consider before placing bets. Our top Wimbledon betting tips include:
- Ranking/Seeding: Of course one of the first things to take into account is a player’s seeding in the tournament and their world ranking. Naturally, the higher the ranking/seeding players are more likely to win.
- Form: While rankings are reflective of form, it’s always a good idea to look at more recent results as you’ll get a much clearer idea of the form of a player. For example, a player might be ranked number 10 but have lost their last five matches, while a number 15 ranked may have won their last five. That may encourage you back the lower ranked player.
- Good on Grass: Explore how players perform on different types of surface. Wimbledon is a grass surface, so look out for the players who generally perform better on a grass court.
- Head-To-Head: Some players play better against a particular player in comparison to others. Study the head-to-head statistics and see how they’ve performed in the past. This will help you decide who might win and how close it could be.
- Style of Play & Strengths: The style of play and how strong players are playing various shots is always a good indicator of how a match will go. Compare the players and see how they styles contrast. For example, one player might be strong playing at the net, while another might be weak and struggle.
- Training Camps: Pundits and players will often provide insight into how training caps have gone, and whether players have managed to stay injury free and train with the intensity they should be. Those training well in the build up will be feeling more confident, fitter and will hit the ball faster and harder than those who have suffered bad training camps. This is usually evident in tournaments such as Queens ahead of Wimbledon.
Wimbledon Prediction: Who Will Win In 2020?
The 2020 edition of Wimbledon is already being predicted by the bookmakers and it’s perhaps no surprise that it’s Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic being favoured in the Singles.
Novak of course won in dramatic fashion against Roger Federer in 2019, while Serena fell just short in her comeback year, losing to Simona Halep in the Final.
Halep herself could be a good bet, with Paddy Power pricing the Romanian at 7/1 compared to Williams’ 6/1.
Ashleigh Barty is current joint favourite alongside Williams, while Angelique Kerber and Karolina Pliskova are 11/1.
In the Men’s Singles, Djokovic (6/4), Federer (10/3) and Rafael Nadal (5/1) are the three favourites and there was very little between them in the last tournament. It’s a tough one to call and we wouldn’t like to call this one, but if we had to our Wimbledon prediction would likely be with the Serbian.
