2023 Wimbledon Men’s Preview, Predictions & Picks
It’s no surprise that Novak Djokovic heads into the tournament as an overwhelming favorite. He has won both majors up for grabs so far this year, including the French Open less than a month ago.
Djokovic has won Wimbledon on seven occasions, with four of those victories coming in the last five years. He is undoubtedly “the man to beat” at Wimbledon this year. But you never know what might happen during the tournament!
However, at -140 odds, there isn’t really any value in the Djokovic bet. So we’re looking at the rest of the field.
Pick: Carlos Alcaraz (+350)
Next in the odds is the 20-year-old Spaniard, Carlos Alcaraz.
Normally, Djokovic’s Spanish barrier is in the form of Rafael Nadal. However, Nadal’s injury troubles have resulted in his absence from Wimbledon this year.
Alcaraz offers a more youthful threat. But his threat cannot be underestimated. His Wimbledon preparation has been perfect, following his Queen’s Club victory just last week. Winning Queen’s on grass court will set him up nicely as the No. 1 seed at Wimbledon.
Bear in mind that, as No. 1 seed, Alcaraz would not need to play Djokovic until the Final if they make it there. A $50 bet on Alcaraz at +350 odds would pay out $225.
Sleeper: Alex De Minaur (+5000)
This man came second at Queen’s, losing out to Alcaraz 6-4, 6-4 in the Final. But, honestly, that isn’t why he’s our 2023 Wimbledon sleeper pick.
The 24-year-old Aussie has shown promise in recent tournaments. He is No. 15 seed at Wimbledon this year, but has always enjoyed playing on grass. In fact, De Minaur has won 21 of the 30 matches he has played on the surface since the beginning of the pandemic.
“Ultimately once this kind of tournament finishes, there’s a little sense of relief because we get on to the grass and that’s a surface all of us tend to play well on,” De Minaur said following his Roland Garros exit at the hands of Djokovic.
At +5000 odds, a $50 bet on the Aussie would pay out $2,500. Alex De Minaur is the one when it comes to Wimbledon sleeper picks for 2023.
2023 Wimbledon Women’s Preview, Predictions & Picks
Despite Djokovic winning the majority of Wimbledon Men’s titles in the past six years, it’s a different story when it comes to the Women’s. A different player has won the Wimbledon Women’s Singles every year since 2017.
There are three individuals who have been tipped to win this year’s Wimbledon title – Iga Swiatek (+380), Elena Rybakina (+425) and Aryna Sabalenka (+500).
But there are more Wimbledon sweeper picks to scout out. Let’s dive in to our Wimbledon Women’s best bet, followed by our sleeper.
Aryna Sabalenka (+500)
The 2023 Australian Open champion is flying high as she prepares for Wimbledon. She defeated Elena Rybakina, the Wimbledon reigning champion, and will have no fear this July.
Her win record at Wimbledon is 6-4, which is pretty solid. The Belarusian last featured at Wimbledon in 2021, when she reached the semi-finals. A second grand slam victory in 2023 is very much on the cards for Sabalenka.
Jelena Ostapenko (+2500)
Our Wimbledon sleeper pick for the Women’s category is Jelena Ostapenko.
She has a grass title under her belt already this season, after defeating Barbora Krejcikova in the final of the Rothesay Classic in Birmingham. The Latvian excels on grass court.
Ostapenko’s serving is where she can falter. However, if she can avoid issues when it comes to serving, +2500 seems like a terrific price for a player of her quality. A $50 wager on Jelena Ostapenko would pay out $1,250 if she is successful at Wimbledon.
