How Wimbledon odds work

You'll find that Wimbledon betting in Canada is no different to betting on tennis generally. If you're new to it all though, then we can help. Here's a typical men's singles final between two of the all-time greats:

Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic
2.20
Roger Federer
Roger Federer
2.50

In this example of Wimbledon men's singles odds, Djokovic is the narrow betting favourite to win. For every C$5 staked on the Serbian tennis star, you receive a return of C$11. That is C$6 of profit.

Meanwhile, the odds for Federer to win Wimbledon are 2.50 in this instance. To make C$6 profit on the Swiss tennis legend, you need only wager C$4 for total returns of C$10.

In our example of Wimbledon men's odds, we've gone with the decimal format, but you could also encounter fractional prices (popular in the UK), or the American moneyline style.

To learn more about the different types of expressing odds and how they compare, see our odds calculator.

Popular Wimbledon bets

All good guides offering Wimbledon betting tips and advice need to give you an insight into popular markets. Now that we've covered Wimbledon tennis odds and how they work, here are some of the best Wimbledon bets you can make:

Match winner

Betting on the winner of a particular tennis match is the most basic form of gambling on offer. In the same example comparing Federer and Djokovic Wimbledon odds, Djokovic is the favourite.

Novak Djokovic
Novak Djokovic
2.20
Roger Federer
Roger Federer
2.50

Tiebreak in match

Continuing with the fundamentals, will there be a tiebreak in the match? You're betting on there either being one or not.

Set betting

You can place set bets before the match has begun or even while the match is in-play. If live betting, you could bet on who will win the current set, for instance. Otherwise, you can bet on the set scores or the winner of one of the sets.

In this example of women's Wimbledon odds, a C$10 bet on Petra Kvitová winning the second set would return C$26.30 (C$16.30 profit plus the C$10 stake).

Petra Kvitová

to win the second set
2.63

Correct score

This is a particularly tricky bet, as you need to predict the exact score of a match or set. But of course, if you do get it right, you're guaranteed great returns even if you bet relatively small amounts (which we highly recommend).

Serena and Venus Williams
2-1
Angelique Kerber and Sabine Lisicki

Handicap betting

In early Wimbledon matches where top-seeded players might be up against low-ranked players, handicap betting really comes into play. To level the playing field between these two players, sportsbooks will set a handicap that can be used to predict which player will win the most games (rather than who will win the match).

For instance, Djokovic, the world no. 1, was up against the then 253rd ranked British player Jack Draper in the first round of Wimbledon 2021. To make it more appealing to bet on Draper, the underdog, sportsbooks could set a handicap of +11.5 to Draper.

Djokovic ending up winning the match in four sets (4-6, 6-1, 6-2, 6-2), so his game total was 22 to Draper's 11. But, when you add on the +11.5 handicap to Draper's final score, you've won the bet, despite the fact that Djokovic won the match.

Jack Draper

+11.5

Futures bets

Wimbledon pre-tournament odds are typically available far in advance and fluctuate as the event draws nearer. Known as futures markets, these wagers offer great value as the earlier you bet, the better the odds will be. Here are some examples of futures bets you can make:

Outright tournament winner

Betting on the outright winner in the men's or women's singles is by far the most popular market when it comes to Wimbledon. Of course, you can also bet on the outright winner of the women's, men's or mixed doubles.

Madison Keys and Madison Brengle

to win the women's doubles
26.00

To reach the final

Another popular futures market is betting on a player to make the final. This wager pays out whether that player goes on to win the final or not.

Stage of elimination

At what point in the Wimbledon draw will a player or doubles pair be eliminated from the tournament?

3.75

Live betting

You can get involved in Wimbledon betting while matches actually take place. This is also known as live betting or in-play betting.

All the best tennis betting sites will have Wimbledon live odds that update in reaction to what happens on court. These replace regular fixed odds markets when play gets underway. Popular tennis live betting markets include set winner and next game winner.

Wimbledon stats & info

Wimbledon format & rules

Here are some of the key facts about this prestigious tournament:

  • The first Wimbledon Championships was held in South London in 1877 and each edition of the Grand Slam has been on outdoor grass courts
  • Singles tournaments for men and women run at the same time as doubles and mixed doubles events
  • All Wimbledon draws are seeded to keep the top tennis players apart until later in the tournaments. If you aren't seeded, then you may have to qualify
  • Matches involving just men are the best-of-five sets, while women only and mixed doubles events are best of three
  • A game of tennis must be won by two clear points. It's the same for a set with games unless it reaches 6-6 and then a tiebreak is used
  • Although traditionally held over the last week of June and first in July, recent editions of Wimbledon have all been in July
  • Unlike other Grand Slams, there is a strict dress code of all white attire for players
  • Centre Court was fitted with a retractable roof in 2009 so that rain delays would be minimized for matches on it
  • From 2019, if any tennis match at Wimbledon goes to a deciding set and reaches a score of 12-12, it'll be decided by a tiebreak
