Wimbledon 2021 betting preview

PSB Pick Play: Wimbledon Men’s and Women’s Odds and Betting Preview

It’s a tale of two fields. 2021 Wimbledon has vastly different outlooks relative to the men’s and women’s brackets.

On the men’s side, Novak Djokovic is a heavy favorite to win the event and claim his 20th Grand Slam title, which would tie him with Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer for the men’s record.

On the women’s side, things are wide open. Australian Ashleigh Barty, the world’s No. 1 ranked player, is a slight favorite, but there are several others with similar odds. 

So it’s a tale of two fields. And in this week’s installment of Penn Sportsbooks’ Pick Play, we’ll cover all the odds at the Pennsylvania online sportsbooks to get you ready for Wimbledon.

Another subplot in the men’s tournament is Djokovic’s desire to win what is known as the Golden Slam in tennis. That includes all four tennis majors (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, the U.S. Open), as well as an Olympic gold medal.

So far, he’s captured the Australian and French Open titles this year. And yesterday, he and Barty were named the top seeds at Wimbledon.

(Djokovic’s) biggest obstacle to me is if his body holds up through this,” ESPN analyst John McEnroe said in a recent interview. “It looks amazing. He looked phenomenal and he’s halfway home (for the Golden Slam)…He’s the best player that ever lived, I would say, on hard courts. If he’s able to maintain his health through this, I mean, I think he’s got a great shot at winning the slam.”

Can Serena Williams claim her 24th major title?

In the women’s field, oddsmakers expect an intriguing tournament. As of Friday, Barty and Williams are co-favorites with a price of +650. And as noted in a preview on CBS Sports, six different females have won in the last seven events.

Williams is seeking her 24th Grand Slam tournament win. And ESPN analyst Chris Evert thinks Wimbledon and its grass courts probably provide the best chance.  

“She’s won the most of any current player on grass,” Evert said in an ESPN interview. She has had the most experience and wisdom and instincts on the grass courts of any current player.”

The betting lines and odds for both fields may move somewhat before Wimbledon begins on Monday, but it’s pretty clear that the expectations surrounding the men’s and women’s tournaments are drastically different.
