Wimbledon is widely considered the most prestigious tennis tournament in the world and I would argue that it is the most sought after win among the four majors in tennis circles. The 2021 edition of Wimbledon gets underway next week in London and the entire tournament will be shown on TSN here in Canada.
Looking at the odds, Novak Djokovic is the favourite to defend his title from 2019, but Federer, Tsitsipas and Medvedev are also contenders and should be factors in the tournament. From the Canadian contingent it’s actually Denis Shapovalov who has the shortest odds at 40-1 on the men’s side (Auger-Aliassime has odds of 66-1). Milos Raonic had to withdraw due to a calf injury. Bianca Andreescu has the best chance of any Canadian to win Wimbledon with odds of around 10-1 to win the women’s tournament.
Wimbledon will receive a lot of coverage here in Canada with TSN covering the entire tournament. Add in the fact that there are three young Canadians who are real threats to go deep in the singles tournaments and we could have a Canadian in the hunt come the second week of the tournament. With all of this attention on Wimbledon here in Canada I decided to add this step by step guide to betting on the tournament.
How To Bet On Wimbledon – 3 Step Guide
Follow this simple 3 step guide to get your bets placed on Wimbledon.
Step 1. Open an Online Betting Account
The first thing you’ll need to do is open an account with an online sportsbook. Our top rated sportsbook for betting on tennis is Bet365.com. They are the most popular sportsbook worldwide and always have some of the best odds for tennis betting. They also allow you to watch and live bet every match throughout the tournament (if you don’t have TSN this is a huge perk).
The sportsbook is very easy to use and navigate, and they have a very wide variety of deposit/withdrawal options for Canadians. Check out our full review here.
Step 2. Make Your First Deposit
Next you’ll need to add some funds to your account. Check out our banking options page for breakdowns of some of the deposit options available at Bet365.
Some deposit options available to me when I deposit include credit card, InstaDebit, iDebit, paysafecard and bank wire.
Step 3. Place Your Wimbledon Bets
Now that you have funds available it’s time to place your Wimbledon wagers. You can wager on individual matches throughout the tournament or on the tournament winner outright. Check out our tennis betting page for more information on the various individual game matches that you can make.
To bet on the individual matches click on ‘Tennis’ followed by ‘Wimbledon’ to bring up the odds for all upcoming matches in the tournament.
To bet on the tournament winner you should select ‘Outrights’ at the top of the ‘Tennis’ page and select the ‘To Win Outright’ link for either the Men’s or Women’s tournament.
