2021 Wimbledon odds, picks, predictions: Top tennis expert says Roger Federer primed for upset

Storylines abound as Wimbledon 2021 approaches on Monday, June 28. On the men’s side, Rafael Nadal will not be involved, but there is plenty of star power up and down the 2021 Wimbledon bracket. Novak Djokovic enters as the No. 1 player in the world and is in search of a sixth Wimbledon title after winning the two previous editions in 2018 and 2019.

Djokovic begins 2021 Wimbledon with -110 odds to emerge victorious according to William Hill Sportsbook. He is the favorite, though Stefanos Tsitsipas and Daniil Medvedev come in at +600 in the current 2021 Wimbledon odds. Roger Federer enters with the fourth-best odds to win at +800. Before making your men’s 2021 Wimbledon picks or predictions, you need to see who tennis expert Sean Calvert is backing.

Calvert is the famed handicapper who called Stan Wawrinka winning the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1. In 2019, Calvert took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1, among many stunning calls. Anyone following his tennis picks is way up.

Now, Calvert has scrutinized the latest Wimbledon 2021 odds and released his coveted best bets to win it all. He’s sharing all of his expert picks and analysis at SportsLine.

There are big names in the mix at Wimbledon and many could be seen as appealing in the betting market. However, Federer is one of Calvert’s fades for the tournament. For the vast majority of the last two decades, his odds of +800 would have been incredibly appetizing, and many are undoubtedly flocking to bet on one of the greats of men’s tennis. Calvert isn’t one of them, though, as he believes Federer is not a value at this price.

Calvert acknowledges the chance that Federer “might win enough early matches to play himself back into form.” On the flip side, he recently lost to Felix Auger-Aliassime in Halle and the 39-year-old hasn’t been dominant lately. Federer underwent a pair of knee surgeries in 2020 and hasn’t been able to replicate his top-level form. His last grand slam win came in 2018 and that streak is likely to continue according to Calvert’s analysis.
