The world’s finest tennis players have descended upon London to battle it out for glory at Wimbledon this week. Novak Djokovic is the defending men’s champion and he has a great chance of securing back-to-back victories. Roger Federer is now 37 and the great Swiss looks like a fading force, while Rafa Nadal is not too dangerous on grass and Andy Murray is not taking part. The younger players have never turned it on at a Grand Slam and that leaves a clear path for Djokovic to go on and secure victory. He looks well priced at 5/4 to lift the trophy, but 888 Sport has a very tempting boosted odds offer of 12/1 on him pulling it off. You can bet £5 on this offer, meaning you win £60 in free bets if Djokovic clinches another famous victory. Alternatively, 888 Sport will offer you 40/1 on Federer winning Wimbledon or 50/1 on Nadal.
Paddy Power is also getting in on the act by offering punters a £20 or €20 risk free bet on Wimbledon. This is a fantastic offer, as it allows you to bet on a particular match or on the winner of the tournament and if unsuccessful you will get your money back in cash. It is rare to be offered a risk free bet in which you are paid in cash, as most of these offers take the form of free bets instead. It is therefore well worth taking Paddy Power up on this promotion, as you literally have nothing to lose. You could bet on Djokovic, or you could take a speculative punt on a long shot. Britain’s Johanna Konta 16/1, while Kyle Edmund is priced at 125/1.
William Hill will give you a free £10 bet if you wager £10 on the Wimbledon men’s singles tournament. Your qualifying bet could be on the winner or you can place a £5 each-way bet on a longer shot. Once again, this allows you to either bet on Djokovic or go for a longer shot in the hope that he will reach the final. Last year South Africa’s Kevin Anderson went to the final, showing that there is significant potential for outsiders to flourish there.
England head into a crunch World Cup cricket clash against India today and defeat would leave them likely to crash out of the tournament. Eoin Morgan’s men have topped the world rankings for more than a year and they were the favourites to win the World Cup on home soil. However, little has gone to plan for England thus far and they have already lost to Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Australia. That leaves them teetering on a knife-edge and another loss would represent another nail in the coffin. India have been the best team at the tournament thus far and they are yet to lose a match, so the task facing England is momentous. They are priced at 19/20 to win the match, but Energy Bet will offer you 25/1 on them securing victory in this crucial game.
