Wimbledon Betting Tips : Men's Quarterfinal Prediciton

Wimbledon Betting Lines Analysis

By Matt Pitt

Roger Federer (-303) vs. Marin Cilic (+240)

Roger Federer

Former world number one Roger Federer continues his quest for an eighth Wimbledon title when he takes on number nine seed Marin Cilic of Croatia in the quarter-finals on July 7.

Federer, the number three seed, is +280 to win the tournament, second favorite behind Andy Murray, after Novak Djokovic’s shock exit at the hands of Sam Querrey.

The last time these two players met was in the semi-final of the US Open in 2014 and Federer won 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 on a hard court. If you think Federer will win in straight sets again, you can find odds of around +175.

Cilic’s Round of 16 match ended earlier than expected as Kei Nishikori retired during the second set with Cilic leading 5-1 having won the first set 6-1.

Federer is far too good of a player not to beat Cilic, and that’s what we’re betting on, perhaps Federer to win 3-1 at +260.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (+700) versus Andy Murray (-1250)

Andy Murray

Andy Murray is an overwhelming favorite at -1250 to beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in this quart-final match so there is little value in betting in the result market.

Murray has beaten Tsonga 12 times from 15 games dropping only 10 sets during those games; Murray is -151 to win 3-0 in this particular tennis match.

The British world number two beat Nick Kyrgios in straight sets in the Round of 16, winning 7-5, 6-1, 6-4 while Tsonga’s opponent, Richard Gasquet retired while trailing 2-4 in the first set.

The extra rest could work in Tsonga’s favour, but Murray is playing some superb tennis of late. Odds of +110 on Tsonga to win at least one set look tempting, yet Murray should still win this ecounter comfortably.

Sam Querrey (+225) vs. Milos Raonic (-277)

Sam Querrey

After drawing Novak Djokovic in Round 3, Sam Querrey, the number 28 seed, would have been forgiven for thinking his Wimbledon was over. However, he pulled off a shock win over the seemingly unstoppable Djokovic, winning 7-6, 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 to progress to the quarter-finals.

Querrey is +3300 to win Wimbledon, which is very unlikely, but he is full of confidence right now after that Djokovic win.

This pair have only played each other four times previously with Querrey winning three, including one game on grass at Wimbledon 2012 when he ran out a 6-7, 7-6, 7-6, 6-4 winner.

Miloas Roanic had to endure a four-set game in the Round of 16 against David Goffin, which could have taken a lot out of him. Roanic is in good form, however, reaching the final of Queen’s only to lose 2-1 to Andy Murray.

Roanic should have enough in his tank to win this match and he is -227 to do so. A 3-2 Roanic victory is priced at +500 with a 3-1 win at +260.

Tomas Berdych (-400) vs. Lucas Pouille (+300)

Tomas Berdych

Both Tomas Berdych and Lucas Pouille had to battle through five sets in their Round of 16 matches so it will be interesting who fares the best when they meet in the quarter-finals.

Berdych, the 10th seed, made hard work against world number 64 Jiri Vessely in the Round of 16 and must perform better if he is to reach another major semi-final.

The bookmakers believe he will easily sweep aside Pouille judging by his -400 odds to win the match, and the +125 to win the match by three sets to nil.

Pouille is the 32 seed and not fancied in this match, as the +300 odds reflect. Three of Pouille’s last four matches have gone to four or more sets so betting on the -175 on Pouille to win at least one set looks a good bet.

These two players have never met in a competitive match so they have no history, but Berdych should win this encounter. Berdych to win 3-1 is +250 while another five-set thriller going Berdych’s way is +650.
