Tennis Betting: Go With Nadal, Sharapova at Wimbledon

Odds and Predictions for Wimbledon  2011While you’re doing some horse betting online, check out the odds for the 125th edition of Wimbledon, the oldest tennis tournament in the history of the game, and the most coveted of them all. This year’s event is markedly different on both sides, as the men should boil down to a four-man showdown, while the womens’ draw is as unpredictable as ever.

Men

Roger Federer (six times) and Rafael Nadal (two) have combined to win the last eight Wimbledon titles, and their 2008 epic final that was won by the Spaniard could go down as the best match ever in tennis history. They’ve now been joined by Novak Djokovic, who won the Australian and had a 43-match streak going until he lost to Federer in the semifinals at the French Open. And then of course, there is Andy Murray, who will have the weight of the United Kingdom on his shoulders, and he has been to the semifinals in each of the last two years. Just like those who make NFL betting picks know that Pittsburgh, New England or Indianapolis is going to win the AFC, one of these four men will win Wimbledon, and the smart play is Nadal.

Djokovic has been favored in some places because of his play in 2011, but it’s tough to look past Nadal and Federer in one more massive final, and Nadal will win his third Wimbledon crown.

Women

The female side of the draw is as wild as online casino games, even though history is on the side of the Williams sisters, Venus and Serena. The two have combined to win nine of the last 11 Wimbledon championships, with Venus claiming five, but Serena is returning after a year off due to various injuries and illnesses, and Venus hasn’t been to a Grand Slam final since this event in 2009, which she lost to Serena. After those two, you could pick any of the top 10 to come through on the grass surfaces of the All England Club. Li Na is coming off her win at Roland Garros, while Vera Zvonareva lost to Serena in last year’s final. World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki is looking to bounce back from a disappointing French Open, and a lot of attention will be focused on the Dane. But the play here is 2004 champion Maria Sharapova, who has been playing with a renewed focus and made it to the semifinals at the French Open. Sharapova is 3-2 in the finals of tournaments on grass, and her winning experience would give her an edge over all but a few in this tournament. Pick Maria Sharapova to beat Venus Williams with your betting selection.
