Djokovic Dominates Wimbledon Futures Markets

At the top of our Wimbledon picks will be Novak Djokovic, who has already secured the first two grand slams of the year.

The Serbian superstar is the early -140 favorite for the third grand slam of the year, which kicks off next month.

Next best with the sportsbook market is Carlos Alcaraz, who is considered the heir apparent to Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Roger Federer.

Calendar Slam on the Cards

Djokovic has every chance to win the calendar slam as a 36-year-old, which would be an incredible feat.

We don’t think there will be any Wimbledon predictions that don’t feature Djokovic winning on the grass courts at Wimbledon, as he hasn’t shown signs of slowing down.

He made Alcaraz look second-rate in their semifinal at Roland Garros, and we think Alcaraz is better suited on the clay compared to grass.

Coach Goran Ivanisevic loves his mentality come grand slam time, according to the latest tennis news.

“He has this software in his head that he can switch when a Grand Slam comes. [A] Grand Slam is a different sport compared to other tournaments. He switches his software. The day we arrived here, he was better, he was more motivated, he was more hungry,” Ivanisevic said.

“Every day he played better and better. I thought against Alcaraz one-and-a-half hours he played unbelievably smart and unbelievable tennis. And today he just finish what we started actually in Monte-Carlo, to practice, and now it’s payday. We cashed the cheque.”

Bettors get -140 for Djokovic with online gambling markets to win Wimbledon. We can’t see too many challengers standing in his way, and we expect those odds to firm closer to start time.

Alcaraz Isn’t Quite Perfect

He’s an amazing player, but despite some commentators saying he has no flaws, Alcaraz is far from perfect.

The 2022 U.S. Open winner burst onto the scene and is now the world number one, but he hasn’t won that many tournaments and that’s the big concern.

With only one grand slam title under his belt, the Spaniard has plenty of ground to make up, even on the likes of Daniil Medvedev, who has seemingly been forgotten in the world of tennis.

The upside is massive with Alcaraz, but he has already suffered a few untimely injuries, so he’s a risk when placing a bet with sport betting markets.

“I didn’t watch the match, but the fact Alcaraz cramped suggests he was feeling some of the nerves which was completely understandable in that situation,” Andy Murray said.

It’s almost as if the tennis world desperately needed some young blood, especially with Federer retiring and Nadal all but retiring. A lot of pressure has been put on the teenager’s shoulders, and so far, we haven’t been impressed.

However, he’s on the second line of betting for Wimbledon at +300. Based on his ranking, that’s a fair price, and he could meet Djokovic in the final if he remains healthy.

Close Women’s Market

We expected Iga Swiatek to be the hot favorite to win at Wimbledon, and although grass isn’t her favorite, she is the best player in the world.

Swiatek comes off a win at the French Open, where she dropped just one set throughout the tournament, which came in the final against Karolina Muchova.

Most of the money has come for Elena Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka, who are better on the grass, but we don’t think they’re nearly as talented as Swiatek overall.

Swiatek is a +400 favorite alongside Sabalenka, and the three aforementioned players are the only ones at a single-figure price.

Ons Jabeur and Cori “Coco” Gauff have been solidly supported at +1000 and +1400 respectively, so they have chances of making a deep run in July.
