Men’s 2021 Wimbledon Finals: Djokovic A Monster Favorite

  • Novak Djokovic is a -500 favorite to beat Matteo Berrettini in the Men’s Wimbledon final.
  • Djokovic has lost just a single set throughout the entire tournament.

LONDON – The 2021 Wimbledon field has officially been cut to just two players on Friday as Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini will meet in the men's Wimbledon Final on Sunday.

Sportsbooks aren’t giving Berrettini much a chance as Djokovic is listed as a -500 favorite on the moneyline.

Can Djokovic Be Beaten

Novak Djokovic has been on an otherworldly tear recently. He dropped the first set of the entire tournament in the opening round and has not lost a set since.

He’s already won the first two Grand Slam tournaments of the season and is now primed to win his third.

Djokovic vs Berrettini Moneyline Odds

  • Novak Djokovic -500
  • Matteo Berrettini +380

Sports gambling sites would not set the line this much in Djokovic’s favor if he wasn’t deserving of it. Any tennis bettor can feel free to put their money on Berrettini but it might be the same as throwing away money.

In terms of value, it’s much better to put your faith in Djokovic to cover the spread.

Djokovic vs Berrettini Spread Odds

  • Djokovic -5.0 -125
  • Berrettini +5.0 -105

According to online sportsbooks, the most likely outcome of the match is Djokovic to win in straight sets. So as long as Djokovic can win each set 6-4 or better, the spread will be able to hit.

Bettors can use this same logic to jump on the total for the match, which is set at 37.5 games. If the world No. 1 ranked player were to win in straight sets, the Under would cash easily.

Plus, it also allows Djokovic to lose a set and still cash, 6-4, 4-6, 6-2, 6-3 for example.

In short, this is projected to be an unexciting final matchup with Djokovic being able of taking home the trophy with relative ease.
