2017 Wimbledon Men’s Final Betting Tips

July 16, 2017 by Posted in Betting Tips

Roger Federer continued to defy age and critics as his immaculate 2017 season continued its . The Swiss maestro continued his love affair with Wimbledon reaching his 11th Wimbledon final. Awaiting him in the finals on Sunday is the Croatian surprise package Marin Cilic. His form at Wimbledon this year has been refreshing which means we have a great final in the offing.

Year so far
After the semi-final exit at the SW19, everyone that Federer is ready for his swansong. A six-month injury layoff didn’t help things either. But true to his champion spirt, Federer roared back into contention with a title win in the Australian Open.

Cilic had a below-par start to the season but found his bearings in the Clay season tournaments. In the warmup events to Wimbledon, a semi-final and final appearance got him to form.

Route to the final
Federer had an unblemished path to the final. He hasn’t dropped a set on his way to the title decider – something which he’s done three times now at Wimbledon. He had luck on his side too as Novak Djokovic’s injury-withdrawal cleared his path. That of course should not take the sheen off his campaign where victories over Grigor Dimitrov, Milos Raonic and Tomas Berdych were as comprehensive as any.

Cilic on the other hand made best use of the open draw in his half and was almost unchallenged till quarter-final. In the last-eight, he survived key moments to dump Rafael Nadal-slayer Gilles Muller. Cilic then followed it up with an impressive four-set win over Sam Querrey to reach his first Wimbledon final.

Federer holds a 6-1 career record over Cilic with the Croat’s only victory coming in the US open in 2014 – when Cilic went on to win his only Grand Slam title. There last match was in the 2016 Wimbledon quarter-final when Roger came back from a 2-0 set deficit to win in five.

Key battle
Federer’s game has dramatically improved this season making a mockery of critis who ruled him out of reckoning. His backhand looks to be back at its menacing best, which means Cilic will have to bring his 2014 US Open form to have any chance of winning.

Federer should start as favourite – both on form and head-to-head record. Odds of 1.2 (William Hill) are offered on him finishing as Champion.

Cilic on the other hand has very little to lose and that may bring out the best out of him. Back him at odds of 5.0 (bet365) to end up as winner.

Federer’s form has been pristine in the tournament that has seen him reach the final in straight sets. Back him to win in straight sets at odds of 2.05 (William Hill).

TIP: Federer to win in three sets – $2.05 at William Hill
