2022 Wimbledon Men's Odds
A snapshot of the Wimbledon Odds via BetMGM and current at the time of publication.
Novak Djokovic, -120
Defending champion Novak Djokovic enters the Wimbledon draw as the top seed despite dropping down to World No.3 in the ATP rankings. That’s because World No.1 Daniil Medvedev is denied entry and World No.2 Alexander Zverev is out with injury.
Djokovic is seeking to win his fourth-straight Wimbledon and a seventh overall Wimbledon crown. Not to mention, he’s chasing 22-time grand slam champion, Rafael Nadal, in the overall grand slam count. Djokovic has 20 grand slam titles to his credit. If the USA's ban on unvaccinated players isn’t lifted soon, Wimbledon may well be his only chance to close the gap on Nadal this year.
Djokovic headlines the first quarter of the draw that looks to be rather straightforward. Indeed, one could argue that Djokovic’s section is easier than Nadal’s on paper.
The Serbian might face Thanasi Kokkinakis in the second round while Serbian compatriots Laslo Djere or Miomir Kecmanovic are among several other challengers that could emerge in the third round. The R16 could pit Djokovic against Reiley Opelka, wild card Tim Van Rijthoven or Nikoloz Basilashvili.
Where things could get tough for Djokovic is in the quarters. Rising teen phenom Carlos Alcaraz is a potential threat there, along with John Isner, Andy Murray and Jannik Sinner.
Matteo Berrettini, +550
Matteo Berrettini reached his maiden grand slam final at Wimbledon last year, only to lose to Djokovic in four sets. The Italian is once again one of the top contenders according to online sportsbooks, underscoring his favorable tennis odds with a strong grass-court season. Berrettini won titles in Stuttgart and Queen’s Club in the lead-up to Wimbledon this month.
It’s a good thing Berrettini comes into Wimbledon in good form and with confidence because he got no favors from the draw. He headlines a formidable third quarter flanked by Stefanos Tsitsipas. And that’s not all. Grass-court guru Nick Kyrgios lurks in this section along with Roberto Bautista Agut, Denis Shapovalov, Diego Schwartzman and rising Brit star Jack Draper. All these players (and more) make this one of the toughest quarters that could deliver a few upsets along the way.
Rafael Nadal, +650
Rafael Nadal is in a unique position to complete the career Grand Slam, but he goes into the Wimbledon Championships without any grass-court preparation under his belt. One can never discount the Spaniard from the tennis betting board. His championship pedigree is beyond reproach. But there are many question marks that hang over his SW19 bid. One of which is a lingering foot injury that could be a factor on the faster, slippery grass surface.
Nadal enters the draw as the second seed. His section is littered with grass-court specialists. American Sam Querrey and veteran Marin Cilic lurk in his corner, along with young guns Lorenzo Sonego and Emil Ruusuvouri. In the quarters, he could face American Taylor Fritz, Danish teenager Holger Rune, Brit Daniel Evans, Maxime Cressy or Canadian Felix Auger Aliassime.
Carlos Alcaraz, +1200
Spanish rising star Carlos Alcaraz is one of the players to spot at Wimbledon because of a banner season. He’s one of the best players on the ATP Tour and one of few to have beaten both Nadal and Djokovic at a tournament this season.
Alcaraz falls into a tough first quarter spearheaded by Djokovic. In all likelihood, his path to the semis (and beyond) will go through the Serbian star. The only downside to Alcaraz’s bid is the fact that he hasn’t played any grass-court events in preparation. Moreover, he’s been out of action for over a month with an injury. Alcaraz is the vogue tennis pick but a risky one.
Felix Auger-Aliassime, +1600.
Felix Auger Aliassime’s game is best suited for grass. If the Canadian is ever to win a grand slam title, Wimbledon is his best shot. Auger-Aliassime falls into the third quarter of the draw, which is jam-packed with legitimate contenders as per the tennis betting odds. He’ll be hard-pressed to emerge out of this section as a result.
Stefanos Tsitsipas, +2200
The No.1 ranked Greek has been knocking on the door of a major title for the last couple of seasons, but most would expect Stefanos Tsitsipas to come through at the French Open. Clay is better suited to his game than grass. That said, he’s a top competitor and a threat in his own right.
He’s in the so-called “Group of Death” section – the third quarter alongside Berrettini, Auger-Aliassime and dark horse Kyrgios. Any one of these players could emerge, including Tsitsipas.
