After rain wreaked havoc on Wimbledon, the action at the All England Club is almost back on schedule, picking up pace as we head into the first weekend. 

Saturday’s tennis betting card marks Day 6 of Wimbledon and it promises to be a great one with third-round matches spanning the men’s and women’s field.

As ever, we’re on top of all the action here at Bookies.com, bringing you daily predictions and tennis picks from the world’s oldest and most prestigious Grand Slam.

Wimbledon Day 6 Best Bets

Frances Tiafoe vs Grigor Dimitrov

The mouthwatering showdown between Frances Tiafoe and Grigor Dimitrov is a total tossup as we look at the odds trading across multiple sports betting apps. Bet365 has it down to a pick’em, while other top-rated sportsbooks give the slight edge to Tiafoe on the moneyline.

That the 25-year-old American is being given the slight betting edge is understandable. He’s become one of the more consistent players on the ATP Tour, recently fine-tuning his grass game by winning the Stuttgart Open title last month – his first-ever triumph on grass. And he reaches the third round of Wimbledon without dropping a set.

Dimitrov, a former junior Wimbledon champion, has experience and undeniable pedigree on grass. This gives him a tangible edge over Tiafoe. 

Moreover, he arrives in London on good form as well. The Bulgarian veteran warmed up his game at Queen’s Club (lost to Alcaraz in the semis) and he carried the momentum into Wimbledon to reach the third round without dropping a set.

All in all, it’s fair to say that Tiafoe “should” win but Dimitrov “could” win. Thus, expect this to be hard fought battle that goes the distance as sets fly off the shelf.

Jiri Lehecka vs Tommy Paul

Czech rising star Jiri Lehecka cruises into the R32 without dropping a set. He took out Sebastian Ofner 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 in his tournament opener. Then, he made light work of the Eastbourne champion Francisco Cerundolo, beating the Argentine 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 in the R64. 

Next up for Lehecka is Tommy Paul, who, ironically, lost to Cerundolo in the Eastbourne final last month. 

The American started his Wimbledon bid with a relatively straightforward win over qualifier Shintaro Mochizuki, 7-5. 6-3, 6-1. However, he was sorely tested by Milos Raonic in a tight four-setter, 6-4, 7-6 (4), 6-7 (4), 6-4. 

Paul enters this fascinating contest as the slim favorite – a tennis betting market outlook that is underscored by his experience, solid form and, partly as well, by a fourth-round appearance at last year’s Wimbledon. 

Whichever way you are slicing this match, it’s likely to be a marathon. Don’t be surprised though if Lehecka, who was a quarterfinalist at the 2023 Australian Open,, springs the unexpected upset here.

Holger Rune vs Alejandro Davidovich Fokina

Holger Rune and Alejandro Davidovich Fokina are set to reprise hostilities in the Wimbledon R32. In their only meeting, Davidovich Fokina came away the winner at the Madrid Masters in May, beating the Danish sensation in a hotly contested three-set marathon, 7-6 (1), 5-7, 7-6 (5).

In spite of that result, it is Rune that enters this highly anticipated rematch as the considerable favorite with surface advantage partly swinging it for him. He’s also one of the game’s rising stars that thrives on the big stage. This year, he made the second week of the first two Grand Slams -- the R16 at the Australian Open and the quarterfinals of the French Open

Davidovich Fokina, by contrast, is a clay specialist mainly. While he is a dogged competitor on any surface, his results are inconsistent from tournament to tournament – as evinced by his 19-16 record ahead of Wimbledon. 

All told, this has the trappings of a close match that could go to four sets or more. In the end, Rune should come through however.

Carlos Alcaraz vs Nicolas Jarry

Alcaraz reclaimed the No, 1 ranking last month following a title-winning run at Queen’s Club. Taking that momentum into Wimbledon, he advances into the third round without dropping a set. 

Next up for the highly fancied Spaniard is Nicolas Jarry. The Chilean isn’t exactly a grass aficionado with his best results coming predominantly on clay. 

Jarry was made to battle in his first two matches, dropping a set in each before clinching the win. But both those wins came at the expense of lesser opposition. It’s  hard to imagine he’ll get a look-in here, never mind deliver the upset over the 20-year-old Spanish phenom.

Ons Jabeur vs Bianca Andreescu

Last year’s Wimbledon finalist Ons Jabeur breezes into the third round, dropping just a handful of games along the way. She edged Magdalena Frech 6-3, 6-3 in her Wimbledon curtain-raiser. Then, she dispatched qualifier Zhuoxuan Bai 6-1, 6-1. 

The Tunisian trailblazer will face her first test at this year’s Wimbledon in former US Open champion Bianca Andreescu, who looms as a potential stumbling block in the R32. 

Andreescu battled through her first two matches, overcoming both Anna Bondar and Anhelina Kalinina in three sets. Winning when not playing at her best should give Andreescu a measure of confidence ahead of this blockbuster showdown on the women’s front. The question is: How much gas does she have left in the tank.

Katie Boulter vs Elena Rybakina

British hopeful Katie Boulter is in the midst of a Cinderella run into the third round of Wimbledon, taking full advantage of a soft spot in the draw that pit her against modest opponents. 

There’s nothing modest about her next opponent though -- defending Wimbledon champion Elena Rybakina. Yes, the Briton will have the partisan crowd firmly behind her. But it is the Kazakh who is getting the nod from the bookmakers and that should come through on her favorable odds in the end. 

Wimbledon Best Bet: Rybakina -4.5 -135 at Caesars

Aryna Sabalenka vs Anna Blinkova

No. 2 seed Aryna Sabalenka survived an early scare, rallying from a set down to beat Varvara Gracheva 2-6, 7-5, 6-2 in the second round. She takes on Russia’s Anna Blinkova, who is coming off an upset win over Irina-Camelia Begu.

Sabalenka leads the head-to-head over Blinkova 2-0, but both of their matches went the distance. Sabalenka’s raw power has proved the difference in these previous meetings. Equally, Blinkova’s variety has made it difficult for Sabalenka to dominate. 

All told, this should be another absorbing contest between them that could go the distance with each winning a set. But back Sabalenka to live another day at the All England Club.
