Novak Djokovic, obviously the headline act, the seven times champion, the 37-year-old now is a little bit of a risk, I'd suggest, at 4/1 to lift the trophy this time. Usually, he's almost a banker, but he's had some knee surgery at the start of June, and I think it's fair to say it's probably safer to look elsewhere.

There are two standout contenders, Carlos Alcaraz, the French Open champion, and the defending Wimbledon champion, he's 5/2, and it's 2/1 for Yannick Sinner, world no.1 at the moment. Sinner has only lost three matches all season, 38 wins along the way and four titles too. It's a bit of a toss-up between those two. Looking around the markets, some markets have Alcaraz as favourite, some have Sinner as favourite.

I favour Alcaraz, he's been there before, he's done it. 5/2 for Alcaraz, for me, would be my headline pick to lift the men's singles trophy this year.

If we look further down the markets to try and find a little bit of value, a possible outsider is Jack Draper. I like him, he's got a good side of the draw. if Djokovic doesn't feature, he has maybe a route all the way through to the final. He's 25/1 to lift the trophy.

You could have a look at Tommy Paul, he's 50/1, and won Queen's last week. Sebastian Korda, 80/1, made the semi-finals at Queen's last week where he lost to Paul. These two could be a little bit of a small stakes play as an outright surprise package.

The finalist market is interesting. I fancy Draper to get through all the way to the final. If you fancy him to take on Alcaraz in the final, it's 28/1 and if he takes on Sinner, it's 25/1.

While world no.1 Iga Swiatek (at 9/1) and world no.3 Aryna Sabalenka (15/4) head the betting markets, I'm going to try and find some value elsewhere.

Elena Rybakina won the Wimbledon title in 2022 and the Kazakhstani is 6/1 to lift the title again. She's a really good player on grass and I like her a lot in the markets here.

I also like a little play on American Coco Gauff, the US Open champion at 7/1. She could go all the way and lift the trophy and, while she's had her moments at Wimbledon, she's never quite cracked it. This could be her year.

Some outsiders, and Karolina Muchova, has had a little bit of an injured wrist, but she's made the quarterfinals twice before. She's got a good draw and is 100/1.

Linda Noskova, 19-year-old Czech, has a bright future. She made the quarterfinals at this year's Australian Open and she's a big Wimbledon outsider at 250/1. She's a very good talent and could shock a few.

  • Carlos Alcaraz to win Wimbledon 5/2

  • Elena Rybakina to win Wimbledon 6/1
