Wimbledon 2018 Men’s Singles Betting
There is only one tennis tournament that people in Great Britain will be very eager to get tickets to and that is of course Wimbledon. However, for many punters they could think of nothing worse than having to travel all the way to London and pay over the top for tickets and food and drink at the venue.
In years gone by the audience have been treated to celebrities such as Cliff Richard getting up and singing between matches, which is another reason I think many people do avoid attending! However, one of the most bet on tournaments during the Wimbledon Championships and one that is bound to attract a huge number of off-course bets are the Men’s Singles matches, and if that is something you have an interest in betting one then please do read on.
You will of course need to know when Wimbledon is being held this year which for reference is between the days of July the 2nd and July the 15th. The address of the ground is as always, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, London, United Kingdom.
As well as you being able to bet on this event now right up until to the starting time of each match and the tournament itself, once the games have all started many betting sites now give you the option of making use of their live in-play betting markets, which many people tend to use to hedge any bets they have placed before the starting time of their chosen matches.
Wimbledon Men’s Singles Outright Betting Market
You need to be aware that if you want to place an early bet on the Men’s Singles at Wimbledon this year then the bets you will be placing are going to be all in, compete or not, so there are risks of placing an early bet and taking some of the following odds.
Both each-way and outright win bets can be placed on this event and you will find that generally all betting sites will be going one half of the win odds on the place part of any each-way bets you do decide to place.
If you want to follow the smart money so to speak then it will be Roger Federer you should be betting on for he has been pencilled in and has been chalked up as the favourite to win this event and his odds are currently 7/4.
However, there is of course the very real chance that players such as Novak Djokovic, at 5/1, Andy Murray at 11/2 or Rafael Nadal at 13/2 could lift the trophy. In fact, most fans of the sport think it will be one of those players that will win this event.
But to be fair there are a couple of underrated players in this event, and with that in mind it may be worth your time and effort and could also be very rewarding by having a speculative bet on players such as Marin Cilic at 12/1 or even Alexander Zverev at 14/1, who to be fair are both in with a chance of being crowned the winner of the Wimbledon Men’s Single champion of 2018.
Bet on Players and Individual Wimbledon Tennis Matches
When your chosen tennis player is long odds-on to win any match he or she is taking part in during Wimbledon, then you will need to look at some of the additional betting opportunities, if you want to get paid out at some higher odds.
Take for example the correct score betting markets, when you place a bet on one of them you are faced with picking out the correct score that each player will achieve in any set played and the odds available on that type of betting markets are going to be much higher and much more appealing than the outright betting markets for sure!

Set and game handicap betting is also going to become available to you at all of our top rated betting sites and bookmakers sites, and when placing a bet on any handicap market one player is given a lead to allow the betting sites to offer you some much more appealing odds, so do consider making sue of those betting markets if you are convinced your chosen player is going to win by a very wide margin!
