Ahead of the Wimbledon 2012 final, it looks like the popular opinion is that experience will be the key to victory on Sunday. With Roger Federer looking to extend his lead at the top of the all-time slam winners list, the bookies think that his ability to get results on big occasions will give him the upper hand against Andy Murray.
Currently, the top odds on offer if you bet on a Federer win are 8/15 with Bet365
. This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, and there could be good value in this. Federer has won 74 titles during his career, 16 of which have been slams. He’s still an incredible talent at 30-years-old, and will top the ATP rankings if he wins this match, which will allow him to equal Pete Sampras’ record for most weeks at No. 1.
That said, Murray is anything but a no-hoper. Sure, he’s lost two slam finals against Federer in the past, but he holds an 8-7 record overall against the Swiss legend. Federer has won the last two meetings between the pairing, but the top odds of 9/5 with SportingBet
if you wager on a Murray win are very tempting.
