With Wimbledon 2010 well and truly underway, we have already seen the greatest match in history with Isner beating Mahut 70-68 in the fifth set. That is unheard of, a truly remarkable match. UK bookmakers took over $18 million on this match.
The men’s outright winner market looks a little uncertain at the moment. Both Federer and Nadal have been taken to five sets and look below their best. Like any Grand Slam in recent years, they were the pre-tournament favourites.
The current betting market at Wimbledon 2010 has seen Nadal shorten in to a $2.80 favourite. Federer isn’t far behind with odds of $2.88. Andy Murray looks like he’s playing well and even the Queen has been on hand to watch him play. He’s at odds of $7.00 to win this year.
I can’t see the William’s Sisters love affair with Wimbledon changing this year. As far as I’m concerned it’s a matter of which one.
Serena is at $2.62, while Venus is at $4.00. If you’re looking for a little more value then Kim Clijsters is at $7.00 and Justine Henin is at $8.00.
According to an Australian bookmaker representative, Aussie punters tend to bet on the individual matches and leave the outright winner betting until the end.
Punters here obviously feel there is more value and money to be had by betting on the individual matches. To take advantage of the odds available online, I recommend opening bookmaker accounts at all the major Australian bookmakers. That way if you fancy a flutter, you can be sure you are getting the best possible odds.
