Maria Kirilenko: +30000
As a sports bettors, our wagers shouldn't be affected by appearances but that doesn't mean it doesn't happen. We here in the Covers.com news room often find ourselves betting on the hotter women on tour even when it's a bad bet. Here are a few lovely ladies we'll be rooting for during Wimbledon which starts Monday. Russian beauty Maria Kirilenko kicks off our list at 300/1 at bet365.com.
Julia Goerges: +8000
There's something we need to get off our chests. We love boobs... I mean, we love Julia Goerges. The 16th-ranked woman in the world has never made it past the second round of Wimbledon but we're betting on a deeper run this year for the 22-year-old German.
Dominika Cibulkova: +12500
An abdominal injury took away this Slovakia native's chance of doing some damage at the French Open but she's looked good in the grass warm-up tourneys.
Ana Ivanovic: +6600
If looks could kill, our girl Ana wouldn't have to worry about her dying talents. She'd just stare down her opponents and they'd crumble to her goddess beauty. Anyway, Ivanovic used to be a candidate to win at every slam event but this is 2011, not 2008.
Caroline Wozniacki: +1000
Wozniacki has owned the top ranking in women's tennis for the better part of a year but she can't seem to maintain her focus or up her game in the later stages of slam tourneys. She's made it to the fourth round at Wimbley the past two years. She's never sniffed a final at the All-England Club.
Maria Sharapova: +450
Outside of vintage 90s Anna Kournikova, it doesn't get any sexier than Maria Sharapova on the courts. And unlike her Russian comrade, Sharapova can play. It's been a few years since her last major tourney win, but she's been knocking on the door. bet365.com have her as the second favorite, behind Serena Williams, to win Wimbledon.

"Kirilenko & Ana Ivanovic are my two favs."
WOW! With a HUGE 4-0 Monday SWEEP (2nd week in a row!), "The Real Deal" Bryan Power is now on a 34-12 ALL Sports Run including 16-3 w/ 10* plays!
Talk about RED HOT! What are you waiting for? The time to subscribe is now!
MLB is on an INCREDIBLE 16-2 Run after going 3-0 yday! It's ALL going right for BP now, so get in the game.
1* Pittsburgh (7:10 ET): On one hand, we have the slumping Atlanta Braves. On the other, we have the Pittsburgh Pirates trying to secure one of the two Wild Cards in the National League and also with an outside shot of capturing the NL Central. Despite playing three straight 1-0 games (going 2-1) and not being the strongest road team, I'll back the team w/ something to play for.
Pittsburgh has won 10 of 12 and 15 of 18. They are receiving tremendous pitching right now, both from the starters and the 'pen. The former group has delivered 23 consecutive shutout innings while the latter has posted a 1.15 ERA the L17 games. Starting today and looking to continue the trend will be Gerrit Cole, who has won his L3 starts, all of them quality outings. Going back to last year's rookie season, Cole has been great in the month of September with a 7-1 record and 2.98 ERA.
The fact that the Braves have scored three runs or fewer in 10 consecutive games does not bode well for them or starter Alex Wood. This has been one of the worst offenses in all of baseball all year long; they currently rank 29th in runs scored after averaging a paltry 1.5 per game those L10. When the Pirates wake up tomorrow, they could officially be in the playoffs (if they win here + Milwaukee loses in Cincinnati). I'll call for them to take care of their end of the bargain. 1* Pittsburgh.
