We have expert betting predictions for the 2021 Men’s Wimbledon tournament, which starts on Monday.
Novak Djokovic is all the rage with bookmakers and will start the tournament as an odds-on chance.
However, Wimbledon can throw in a few surprises so we look at the best betting opportunities for tennis punters over the next two weeks.
2021 Men’s Wimbledon Predictions
2021 Men’s Wimbledon Tournament Winner – Novak Djokovic
It’s tough to overlook a player coming off his 19th Grand Slam win and who is rapidly chasing down Roger Federer as the greatest player of all time.
Novak Djokovic is on another planet right now and we’re not shocked to see his odds firm to $1.72 for Wimbledon. He comes off a stunning 3-2 French Open final win against Stefanos Tsitsipas, where he was 0-2 down.
There is no knocking his confidence and although punters aren’t getting terrific odds, you would happily take $1.72 if he made the final. He’s expected to make a deep run, and none of the early opponents should phase him.
He loves playing this tournament and we believe he will catch Federer and become the new king of grass with his sixth tournament win.
Take the $1.72 because it will only firm throughout the tournament.

2021 Men’s Wimbledon Best Value – Daniil Medvedev
Bookmakers have had a tough time framing a market for Daniil Medvedev this season.
He was a huge drifter at the French Open after stating that he hated clay courts, but he made a deep tournament run and he played great tennis.
He is better on grass, and although he has yet to make a deep run at Wimbledon, he is a better player in 2021 than he has been in the past.
The Russian has been the biggest firmer in the market after opening at much longer odds. He is now on the second line at $8 and that’s a solid move for a guy who likes hard courts.
We think he is a chance of making the final and he’s good enough to cause a minor upset. He gets an easier draw with Rafael Nadal out of the competition, so he should provide punters with a good sight.
Bet: Daniil Medvedev @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
2021 Men’s Wimbledon Best Roughie – Nick Kyrgios
The Australian bad boy of tennis has drifted from $31 to $51, but he’s capable of winning his first round match and getting an easier road to the finals.
His tennis career hasn’t matured like most thought it would, but there is still time for the enigmatic player to focus and play his best.
Winning longer tennis matches has always been his problem because it requires hours of focus. However, we’re prepared to give him another chance to impress at the big odds.
He arrived at Wimbledon a seemingly more focused player, so we’ll see if that translates to making a solid run into the quarters or semis.
Bet: Nick Kyrgios @ $51 – Bet @ Sportsbet
2021 Men’s Wimbledon Longshot – Alex de Minaur
We’re throwing another Australian into the mix. Alex de Minaur couldn’t be any different to Nick Kyrgios, as he actually wins tournaments.
He comes off a tournament win in the Eastbourne Invitational, and although the field wasn’t packed with superstars, it will give the 22-year-old a confidence boost.
He gets a relatively easy start to the tournament and although he’ll face a big name at some stage, he shouldn’t be underrated. Alex de Minaur is a rising star of the game and he has former number one Lleyton Hewitt in his corner, which helps.
Punters get $67 for a player coming off a win, which is good shopping.
