Wimbledon odds: Wednesday preview and advantages

Jul 3, 2012 |
We were 1-1 in Tuesday’s selections, moving to 11-3 and up 6.42 units in the tournament.

David Ferrer (+188) vs. Andy Murray (-200)

Sure, all this Murray Mania is getting a little tiresome every year, but you have to hand it to the 25 year-old after his latest win. He shrugged off the building pressure and frequent rain delays to secure a 7-5, 6-2, 6-3 victory over Marin Cilic to advance to the final eight. However, Ferrer is probably having the best year of his career at 30 years old and looks increasingly better on grass.  He won’t make it easy on the heavily-chalked Murray.

Advantage: Ferrer

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (-333) vs. Philipp Kohlschreiber (+220)

With Rafa Nadal out of the running, this is a big opportunity for Tsonga. He went down a set before overcoming a back injury scare to put Mardy Fish away in the quarterfinals. The status of his back is certainly a concern, but with a .710 winning percentage on grass, he is in a different league from Kohlschreiber.

Advantage: Tsonga
