CURRENT ODDS TO WIN WIMBLEDON - 2009
Can anyone beat Roger Federer at Wimbledon? The Odds say no. Federer is listed at -225 to win and his nemesis Rafael Nadal withdrew from the tournament because of tendinitis in both knees. So it would appear as though he has a clear shot all the way through. Below, we'll list the current updated odds to win Wimbledon courtesy of Sportsbook.com but let's first take a look and see if we can't find an upset.
The two likely to have the best chance to beat Federer, according to the odds as well as many tennis experts, would be Andy Murray who is listed at +250 and Andy Roddick who is listed at current odds of 8/1. No value in backing Murray at those odds, but there may be some value with Roddick.
In looking for potential contenders, why not listen to Federer himself? A while back, he named the aforementioned Roddick, as well as Robin Soderling as threats. Soderling has current odds of 60/1. Not a bad score if he comes through eh? He also named Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who already lost to Ivo Karlovic. Many say Karlovic is a threat to beat Federer because his serve is so hard to break. He's the tallest player in professional tennis standing 6'10'' and has already beaten the likes of Federer, Roddick and other top names. Karlovic has current odds of 50/1.
Betting on the outcome of a Tennis tournament like Wimbledon is very similar to betting on golf tournaments. With Golf, get Tiger Woods out of there and bettors have a chance to make a nice score because the odds on everyone else are always so generous. Same situation here at Wimbledon. Get Federer out of there and the entire field really opens up, making room for savvy bettors to really cash in. The trick is finding the live dog. We've given you a few examples above, but we're also sure many of you have your own opinions. We shall soon see how it all plays out. Good luck if you bet.
