Wimbledon Betting Tips and Trends
We're all about giving you the edge here at Online Gambling, so below are our top betting tips and trends for Wimbledon 2021. Once you've read these, don't forget to keep scrolling for a breakdown of the most popular markets you can bet on.
Grass courts are known to play as the quickest surface in tennis, creating high ball speeds and significantly less bounce. Traditionally, serve and volley players like John McEnroe and Martina Navratilova have had great success at Wimbledon, but due to the 100% ryegrass and heavier balls, Wimbledon isn't all about the big serve anymore. Instead, focus on finding credible players who hold their own service games well; speed without consistency isn't enough.
Wimbledon competitors will play at Queen's Club or the Halle Open to prepare for the short grass-court season. Both tournaments are played just a couple of weeks before the start of the grand slam, offering a great opportunity for bettors to see how the players adjust to grass tennis.
Since 2010 in the men's championship, only two players appeared in the final ranked lower than 8th seed; one of those players was Novak Djokovic (12) after a lengthy period of inactivity. When looking at markets involving the latter parts of the tournament, be sure to consider the top seeds, as they almost always dominate the semi-finals and beyond.
Only last year were the seedings for the men's tournament changed to directly reflect the world rankings. The ladies' championship is still open to some exceptions from the Professional Tennis Committee. However, in the past 10 years, only three times has the Wimbledon ladies' championship been won by the current world number one; all three titles were won by Serena Williams. So for the ladies' title especially, don't fixate too much on rankings.
Throughout Wimbledon, the ladies will play the best of three sets, including in the final. Since 2012, every final has been won in straight sets, and of the 14 sets played since then, only two have gone to a tie break. When betting on the final, consider backing either player to dominate in straight sets, and some in-play betting to predict the set scores will also prove profitable.
With the final staged just two weeks before the start of Wimbledon, you'd be remiss if you didn't follow the clay court action closely. Seven of the last nine Wimbledon champions reached the Semi-Final stages or further in the French Open in that season.
Popular Wimbledon Betting Markets
As Wimbledon is one of the biggest tennis tournaments in the world, almost every match over the two weeks will provide fantastic coverage for bettors. Whether you're a veteran tennis bettor or just starting in 2021, below is a breakdown of the most popular markets you can bet on this year.
If you're to take our advice of backing the top seeds, then this market won't offer much value to you. However, betting on the overall champion in the men's or ladies' singles is by far the most popular market, especially for causal tennis bettors.
If going for the outright winner isn't for you, then stick to betting on which player will win a specific match. This can be done for every game across both of the singles tournaments and will allow you to research head-to-head matchups.
Set betting can be done both before the action begins or in-play and is the prediction of the outcome of specific sets. You can bet on the set scores, the winner of the first set, and who will win the current set if live betting.
It's incredibly hard to predict the exact score of a match or set, but if you can get it right these bets offer great value. If you've done enough research, we recommend only betting small amounts on this market, as you'll still get great returns but it won't dent your bankroll on what is essentially an educated guess.
Handicap betting is most useful in the early rounds of Wimbledon where top seeds can face rookies and low-ranked players. Sportsbooks will set a game handicap that you can use to predict who will win the most games, regardless of the match result. For example, if Roger Federer played Feliciano Lopez, a sportsbook could add a handicap of +5.5 games to Lopez. This means if Federer wins 6-4, 6-4, 7-6, his game total would be 19 and Lopez's 14. Add on the 5.5 games from the handicap and you've won your bet, even though Federer won the match.
Total Match Games
Sportsbooks will also set a number for the total match games, for which you can bet whether the total will be over or under their benchmark. This market is easier in the ladies' games as the matches are played over three sets, rather than five in the men's tournament.
In-Play Wimbledon Betting
Tennis is one of the most popular sports for live betting and Wimbledon is no exception. React to the action as it happens and make live predictions for the next point, game, or set. In-play betting instantly offers more value, as you can capitalize on a favorite being a set down or a niggling injury that is affecting performance.
How Wimbledon Began
Wimbledon has been at the All England Club in the London suburb of Wimbledon since the first match in 1877. Though this tournament is a huge source of pride for Britain, Andy Murray is the only British male to win it since 1936. A British female hasn't won it since 1977.
In the early years, Wimbledon only consisted of gentlemen's Singles. This changed in 1884 when the club added ladies' singles and gentlemen's doubles. Ladies' doubles and mixed doubles were not added until 1913 and up until 1922, the defending champion only played in the final against the player who had won progressed through to face him/her in that year's tournament.
Wimbledon is famous for its traditions. The most famous tradition is the consumption of strawberries and cream by fans and players; they've become an integral part of the Wimbledon experience.
Another tradition of the event is the whites. Players are required to wear all white while competing at Wimbledon. This dress code has caused some controversy over the years, most notably with tennis star Andre Agassi who refused to compete in the event because of it. He later recanted and went on to win at Wimbledon in 1992.
The rain has become an unofficial tradition of the event as matches come to a halt nearly every year because of sudden downpours. Fortunately, the club installed a retractable roof over Centre Court in 2009, making Wimbledon the second grand slam tournament that has indoor play.
There was a time in grand slam history that all of the grand slam tournaments were played on grass courts. Now, Wimbledon is the only one played on grass. All 18 courts currently used in Wimbledon are 100% ryegrass.
