Tips Roger Federer to win    Best Bet @ 15 / 8  
Milos Raonic (each way) @ 25 / 1  

Wimbledon Winner Odds

Federer has won Wimbledon eight titles previously and the door has opened for him to walk through and claim a ninth. He heads into the tournament as a best price 15/8 favourite after drawing Dusan Lajovic in the first round and he is in a relatively easy top section of the draw, with a fourth round clash against Borna Coric - the man who actually beat Federer in Halle last week - and a quarter-final against Kevin Anderson pencilled in at this stage.

Federer is projected to meet the man he beat in last year's final, Marin Cilic, in the last-four this time around. Cilic has continually come up short against Federer as he also lost this year's Australian Open to the Swiss legend and the Croatian is difficult to back at 15/2.

The Queen's champion has reached at least the quarter-final stage in each of his past four visits to Wimbledon but he could meet the dangerous Milos Raonic in the fourth round, with Grigor Dimitrov a potential quarter-final opponent.

Raonic is an interesting proposition in this section as the big-serving Canadian has a good Wimbledon record - semi-final in 2014, runner-up in 2016 and quarter-final last year - and he could be worth an each-way look at 25/1 with Betfred. He has enjoyed a good build-up to Wimbledon as he looked to have put recent fitness issues behind him when reaching the final of the Mercedes Cup in Stuttgart, where he lost to Federer, and he is perhaps the pick of the prices in the top-half.

Odds To Win Wimbledon

In the bottom-half, Rafael Nadal is the number two seed and as short as 15/2, which makes very little appeal as the two-time Wimbledon winner hasn't gone beyond the fourth round of SW19 since 2011. Nadal has enjoyed a remarkable renaissance in recent times but we're still not convinced that his body can hold up the demands of grass court tennis.

Another player who has endured his fair share of injury problems in recent times, Juan Martin Del Potro is in the same section of the draw as Nadal and they are projected to meet in the quarter-finals. The 2013 semi-finalist has enjoyed a renaissance of his own this year but he may have to overcome Andy Murray (20/1) or rising star Denis Shapovalov in the third round - Del Potro is a tempting proposition at 20/1.

The winner of the Nadal-Del Potro section could meet Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals and the three-time Wimbledon winner is as short as 11/2. He has fallen short in some big matches in recent times though and a quarter-final against Alex Zverev or Nick Kyrgios will provide a stern test.

The bottom-half is an absolute minefield, so we will focus our bets on the top-half. We simply cannot look beyond Federer at 15/8 with Betfred, with Raonic the most attractive pick to trouble him at the prices.
