  • After two rounds at Wimbledon odds are shifting
  • Milos Raonic and Felix Auger-Aliassime have seen their odds shorten
  • Where can we find value on Wimbledon future bets?

The field of 128 tennis players has been cut to 32 as the third round at the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club gets underway on Friday.

The usual suspects, Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, and Rafael Nadal are still alive, and consuming the majority of betting interest. After starting Wimbledon as longshots, you can see that Milos Raonic and Felix Auger-Aliassime are gaining support in the Wimbledon odds as both are now offered at +2200 behind the Big Three.

Let’s peak at the updated numbers and consider a wager or two.

2019 Wimbledon Men’s Singles Odds

Player Odds
Novak Djokovic -120
Roger Federer +300
Rafael Nadal +500
Felix Auger-Aliassime +2200
Milos Raonic +2200
Kevin Anderson +3300
Daniil Medvedev +4000
Matteo Berrettini +4000
Karen Khachanov +5000
Sam Querrey +6600

*Odds taken 07/04/19.


The Big Three, Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal, have won ten straight majors and 53 total. They are the three greatest players of all-time based on majors won.

Since the start of 2003, the Big Three have won 14 of 16 Wimbledon’s, with Federer capturing the title a record eight times.

Last year Djokovic beat Kevin Anderson in the final. In 2017 Federer knocked off Marin Čilić for the ultimate prize. Andy Murray got by Raonic to earn the trophy three years ago. In other words, the Big Three have been dominant over a long period of time, but other names are present in the last several years.

Felix Auger-Aliassime

The 18-year-old Canadian came from behind to beat countryman Vasek Pospisil in four sets to begin the tournament, and beat Corentin Moutet in four sets in round two.

Playing in his first major, Auger-Aliassime is the youngest played ranked in the Top 100. He has been near the Top 20 over the last month.

He won the junior version of the U.S. Open in 2016, and reached the quarterfinals that year at Wimbledon.

The future is very bright for Auger-Aliassime, but he would be a pretty big upset to win it all already.

Milos Raonic

While the legacy of Auger-Aliassime has more time to grow and probably more high hopes than Raonic, the veteran Canadian has been excellent thus far and has solid recent pedigree to make a run.

Raonic beat Prajnesh Gunneswaran in straight sets to start Wimbledon, and then eliminated veteran Robin Haase 7-6, 7-5, 7-6.

He reached the Wimbledon Final in 2016, and got to the quarters in each of the last two years. He was a quarterfinalist at the Australian Open this year for the third time.

Raonic is on the same side of the draw as Djokovic. He is 0-9 all-time against the Serb.

There is a scenario where things break right and Raonic is able to take advantage. At 22/1 there are far worse options out there.
