Five best bets for Wimbledon 2015 day three

Broady

Bookies.com give punters five top tips to take in the second round of the men and women's draw at SW19

Top stars such as Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka in the men’s draw, and ladies duo Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova highlight day three at Wimbledon in the second round.

However, with those and others expected to come through their respective matches with ease, Bookies.com find five other ties where you have more of a chance to win big.

Liam Broady to beat David Goffin
Englishman Broady gave home fans something to shout about on Monday, dramatically coming back from two sets down to beat Marinko Matosevic.

He next goes up against Belgian 16th seed Goffin, who has only once reached the third round here before, in 2012, so back Broady with the crowd behind him to emulate compatriot Daniel Evans’ remarkable run at the 2013 US Open. He is 19/2 with 888.com and Unibet to win.

Milos Raonic beats Tommy Haas 3-1
Despite his age, 37-year-old Haas just keeps going, and showed last year (reached the fourth round) and in 2009 (semis) that he still has what it takes to compete in Grand Slams and Wimbledon in particular.

He happens to be up against 2014 semi-finalist Raonic next, but can at least trouble the Canadian by getting a set. Raonic is a tempting 14/5 price with SportingBet, Unibet and 888.com to win 3-1.

Kai Nishikori v Santiago Giraldo goes to five sets
Rising Japanese star Nishikori is not as suited to grass, perhaps due to his smaller height, and it showed in his first round match against Simone Bolelli, who he eventually beat 3-2.

Giraldo, who reache the third round here last year, could also provide a tough test, so take odds of 4/1 with Ladbrokes and Betway for this clash to go to five sets too.

Jelena Ostapenko beats Kristina Mladenovic
Latvian teenager Ostapenko, 18, won Junior Wimbledon last year, and took full advantage of her wildcard this time out, as she thrashed ninth seed Carla Suarez Navarro 6-2 6-0 in the first round.

Back her at a brilliant 13/5 with Boylesports and BetVictor just to beat Frenchwoman Mladenovic as well.

Belinda Bencic beats Anna-Lena Friedsam 2-1
Swiss sensation Bencic, also 18, has sent shivers down the necks of the WTA, after recently reaching the final of the Topshelf event in the Netherlands and winning the Nottingham International, defeating top players along the way.

All her recent runs have perhaps taken their toil, though, as she was given a scare by Tsvetana Pironkova in the first round after losing the first set. Boylesports and Sportingbet, therefore, offer odds of 7/2 for her to win 2-1 once more.
