The tennis season’s third Grand Slam is upon us, as Wimbledon is set to begin this coming Monday in London. Jannik Sinner (Australian Open) and Carlos Alcaraz (French Open) split the first two slams, leaving Novak Djokovic still in search of major glory in 2024. However, the 37-year-old Serb is a question mark heading into the All-England Club due to a torn medial meniscus suffered at Roland Garros. Let’s take a look at the Wimbledon odds and our Wimbledon men’s singles best bets to be made.

Wimbledon tennis best bet: Jannik Sinner (+185) 

The price on Sinner is admittedly less than ideal, but nonetheless, I feel so good about his chances to lift the Wimbledon trophy that I can’t pass it up. Sinner has climbed to #1 in the ATP rankings and it is entirely well deserved. The 22-year-old boasts an amazing 38-3 match record this season and is an even more incredible 58-5 in his last 63 matches dating back to last fall. He has won 4 titles in 2024, including his lone grass-court appearance earlier this month in Halle. Sinner has reached the quarterfinals and semifinals in the last 2 editions of Wimbledon, losing to Djokovic on both occasions. With the 37-year-old Serb out of form and also struggling with an injury, Sinner would be the favorite this time around if they meet in the championship match.

Wimbledon tennis prediction: Hubert Hurkacz (+2000) 

Whereas hard courts generally make for the most even playing field in tennis, you really have to take the surface into account when you are dealing with Wimbledon (grass) and the French Open (clay). Although baseline grinders like Casper Ruud will thrive at the latter, huge servers like Hurkacz are dangerous at the former.

“Huge” doesn’t even tell the full story when it comes to Hurkacz; he is quite simply the best server on tour. The world #7 is averaging 14.2 aces per match this season; nobody else is averaging more than 11.5. He is second this year in both percentage of first-serve points won and percentage of service games held. Unsurprisingly, Wimbledon has been by far Hurkacz’s most successful Grand Slam over the years. He upset Roger Federer en route to the 2021 semifinals and reached the fourth round in 2023 before falling to Djokovic in 4 very competitive sets. It’s also worth noting that the Pole is a former champion on the grass courts of Halle (2022) and he was runner-up there to Sinner just last week.  

Wimbledon tennis longshot pick: Taylor Fritz (+6000) 

With both Sinner and Alcaraz in the top half of the draw and Djokovic a question mark at the bottom, Djokovic’s half is where you want to look for longshot plays. That is the plan with both Hurkacz and Fritz. The American has an especially favorable draw in London, as he would not face Djokovic (or Hurkacz) until the semifinals and either Sinner or Alcaraz until the championship match. Fritz struggled mightily at Grand Slams earlier in his career, but he has since figured out how to perform well on the big stages. He has reached 3 slam quarterfinals (all in the past 3 seasons), including at Wimbledon in 2022 (lost to Rafael Nadal in 5 sets). The world #13 has been in great form this season and currently finds himself in the semifinals at a grass-court event in Eastbourne. At +6000 odds, Fritz is definitely worth a sprinkle.
