Wimbledon Odds – Men’s Favourites
|Wimbledon Men’s Singles Odds
The favourite in the Wimbledon odds for the men’s singles 2023 is Novak Djokovic at odds of 8/13. Those short odds suggest that Djokovic has a 61.9% chance of winning this year’s tournament based on the implied probability of the odds.
If the Serbian is to go ahead and win Wimbledon this year, as he is expected to do based on the current outright odds market, then it would have significant historical implications. Djokovic would join Roger Federer for the most Wimbledon titles with eight. By winning at Wimbledon this year he would also increase his number of grand slams to 24, which would extend his lead over Rafael Nadal to 2 in this category
The only man to ever win all four majors in a calendar year (since the open era began) is Rod Laver who completed the feat in 1969. Djokovic, who has already won the Australian Open and the French Open this year, could join him if he can win at Wimbledon and follow it up with a US Open victory where he is the 5/4 favourite.
I don’t think there’s much value in odds of 8/13 here for Djokovic but I also can’t disagree with him being an odds-on favourite given his record at Wimbledon and the form he’s in this year.
If his odds drifted out to somewhere around the 8/11 or 4/5 range I would consider taking him at those odds but right now he’s too short for me to back. When you consider he has to win seven rounds the chance of an upset or him picking up an injury especially at an older age of 36 has to be factored in.
The second favourite in the Wimbledon odds for the men’s singles tournament is Carlos Alcaraz who has been installed at odds of 10/3. The implied probability of Alcaraz winning Wimbledon based on those odds is 23.1%.
The Spanish sensation goes into this year’s tournament as the #1 seed and number one in the tennis world rankings. Alcaraz is good value for his spot as second favourite in the Wimbledon odds and if anyone is to beat Djokovic then he stands the best chance.
I like the value here in backing Alcaraz to win Wimbledon at odds of 10/3. The young Spaniard, who only recently turned 20 years old, has taken the tennis world by storm since bursting onto the scene. He is not only the future of the sport, but after winning his maiden grand slam at the 2022 US Open, he is also the present too.
The first question to ask when analysing Alcaraz’s chances at Wimbledon 2023 is – can he beat Djokovic? The answer is yes. Alcaraz has a 1-1 head-to-head record against Djokovic. However, the Serbian won the last meeting between the two in four sets at the recent French Open in the semi-final stage.
While Djokovic would rightly go into a potential match between these two as favourites in this year’s Wimbledon I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Alcaraz getting his revenge for the French Open loss.
Betting Tip: Carlos Alcaraz to win Wimbledon @ 10/3
After Djokovic and Alcaraz there is a significant drop off in the betting to where we find Daniil Medvedev at odds of 14/1. Those odds make Medvedev the third favourite in this year’s Wimbledon odds and imply that he has a 6.7% chance of winning this year’s tournament.
Medvedev is a player to keep an eye out for in this year’s tournament as he grand slam pedigree with his win in the 2021 US Open. In the final of that tournament he faced Novak Djokovic, who was vying to complete the Grand Slam, and stunningly beat him in straight sets.
The Russian’s best finish at the Championships is when he got to the 4th round in 2021. That was his only appearance at the tournament since 2020 as Wimbledon was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID and he wasn’t allowed to play in 2022 due to Wimbledon’s ban on Russian players that year.
Odds of 14/1 do look quite tempting here but there are some real concerns around if Medvedev has what it takes to win at Wimbledon.
Medvedv has beaten Djokovic on 5 occasions in their 14 matches against each other. So he does have what it takes to beat the Serbian although the two have only played each other once on grass and it was Djokovic who won on that occasion.
If you don’t fancy the shorter odds of the top two in the betting and want a longer odds bet then Medvedev could be worth a punt to give you some interest.
