    Wimbledon Odds: Novak Djokovic is the odds-on favorite to win Wimbledon which gets underway on Monday, June 27th. Djokovic is the most dominant men’s player in the game today and one of the greatest players of all time. He has already won six tournaments this year including the Australian Open and the French Open. He is now trying to become the first man to complete the calendar Grand Slam in 47 years.

    Here is a look at the tournament, Wimbledon odds and picks.

    Novak Djokovic 5-7

    The top ranked player in the world is playing as well as he ever has as he has won the last four Grand Slam events and he is looking to become the first player in the Open Era to win five major titles in a row. He has won Wimbledon three times in his career in 2011, 2014 and 2015. And he heads into this year’s event brimming with confidence after completing the career Grand Slam by winning the French Open. “I don’t want to sound arrogant, but I really think everything is achievable in life,” said Djokovic, “I’m trying to cherish these moments. Whether or not I can reach a calendar slam, that’s still a possibility.”

    Andy Murray 3-1

    The top contender to challenge Djokovic and perhaps the only player who might give him a run at the title is Murray. He is ranked #2 in the world and he won Wimbledon in 2013. Murray won at Queen’s and he is known as an excellent player on grass so he does have a shot. The problem for Murray is that he is just 2-8 in Grand Slam finals and he has lost 13 of his last 15 matches against Djokovic.

    Roger Federer 14-1

    There is no doubting the greatness of Federer but his days are past. He is ranked #3 in the world but that is due more to the weakness of the men’s side rather than Federer’s play. He has won Wimbledon 7 times but it is hard to see him winning this event unless Djokovic and Murray both stumble.

    Others to Consider

    It is hard to make a case for Wawrinka even though he is ranked 5th in the world. He has done very little this year and his best finish at Wimbledon is a quarterfinal appearance. You would do better to look at Milos Raonic who made the final at Queen’s or Dominic Thiem who made it to the semifinals at the French Open.
