Wimbledon 2018 is scheduled to start July 2nd to July 15th, with Roger Federer tipped to take home the title as the defending champion.
Due to its increasing popularity for punters and millions of viewers worldwide, bookies understand the importance of offering Wimbledon free bets. The advantages of Wimbledon free bets are undeniable – you get extra funds to play with. Most Wimbledon free bets will take the form of a sign-up bonus. Essentially, this means registering an account with a new bookmaker and meeting some wagering requirements if they are part of the terms and conditions. Once you have done that, you can start betting with your funds. Wimbledon free bets are risk-free, and you’ll find most betting sites offering welcome bonuses for new customers.
As we get closer to the tournament (it’s still fairly early for Wimbledon free bets), more free bets will appear. There will, most likely, be exclusive Wimbledon 2018 offers on the outright winner, for example. The week before the tournament is when the bets truly heat up, so we’ll keep an eye out for the best offerings for punters.
Even though it’s still early, bookies are already taking bets on the winner of Wimbledon 2018.
The most popular Wimbledon 2018 betting offers are those for outright winner. This type of bet refers to the overall winner of the tournament and, typically, doesn’t see huge returns as the favourites are already chosen weeks before.
Roger Federer is tipped as the winner, particularly with his 20th Grand Slam win under his belt. Murray is a close second and betting sites are predicting him to take the title from the defending champion. Likewise, there’s no surprise Serena Williams is expected to take the Wimbledon 2018 women’s title. She has 23 Grand Slam titles to her name and is looking to take another one.
Nearer to the tournament, we predict there’ll be plenty of enhanced odds options to take advantage of. Enhanced odds give you solid returns on the favourites, with bookies enhancing particular odds for a short period. These types of bets are where you want to be placing money on the favourites.
In-play bets also play a big part of the sport, with most major betting sites offering the service and recognising its standing in the industry. You’ll find most sites will live stream the highlights, so you don’t miss out on anything with your in-play bets. These types of bets can feature the likes of who is going to win the next serve, the next set etc.
The men’s favourites for Wimbledon 2018 have all been released, and it’s no surprise to see Roger Federer topping the pile, with the best odds ranking him at 13/5.
Early this year, Federer took home his epic 20th Grand Slam win at the Australian Open, defeating Marin Cilic in a five-set thriller. The current world no.2 is now only 155 points behind Nadal, the world no.1, and Wimbledon could see him defend his title.
Murray is tipped as second, the one man expected to give Federer a run for his money. However, he has not played a competitive match since Wimbledon 2017 due to a hip injury and had to sit out of the Australian Open, which could affect his strength and stamina. Djokovic also makes an appearance in the top three after a stellar season, with Nadal rounding up the top four.
Serena Williams is the expected outright winner of 2018 Wimbledon, with early betting odds placing her at 7/2 to win. She left tennis, temporarily, in 2017 after discovering she was pregnant, and her comeback is one of the most anticipated in sport this year. She’s closely followed by Garbine Muguruza and Karolina Pliskova. Her sister, Venus, hasn’t made the top 10, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a Williams/Williams final.
