The year's third major, Wimbledon, begins on Monday from the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in London. World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty, who just won the French Open, is the 4-1 favorite, followed by Serena Williams (6-1), Naomi Osaka (9-1), Petra Kvitova (12-1), Angelique Kerber (14-1) and Karolina Pliskova (16-1).
SportsLine recruited famed women's tennis expert Gavin Mair, who called Osaka's 2018 U.S. Open championship at 32-1, to pick the tournament. Over the past two years, Mair is up an astounding 213 units on his picks to win tournaments and quarters. That means if you had simply placed $100 on each of those picks, you'd be up $21,300!
At last month's French Open, Mair told readers to back 60-1 long shot Marketa Vondrousova. When she made it all the way to the final, anyone who had listened to Mair's advice was able to hedge for big profits.
Now, Mair has broken down the latest Wimbledon 2019 odds and released his best bets to win it all.
One huge shocker Mair is calling for at Wimbledon 2019: Barty, the red-hot Vegas favorite, stumbles big-time. "Barty's achievements are impressive, but it would not be a surprise for her sudden enhancement in profile to have an effect," Mair told SportsLine. "The only player to win the French Open and Wimbledon back-to-back since 2003 is Serena Williams, who did it twice. History is not on Barty's side."
Instead, he's backing three players who are 25-1 to win or higher, including an ASTRONOMICAL long shot whose game is perfectly suited for grass courts! You ABSOLUTELY need to see who Mair's backing before locking in your Wimbledon picks.
So who wins Wimbledon 2019? And which MASSIVE long shots stun the tennis world? ...
