Wimbledon Final Predictions & Picks
Key Stat: Nick Kyrgios has won both previous meetings with Novak
- Djokovic enters this final as the huge favorite having won the previous three Wimbledon editions
- The Australian will make his debut in Grand Slam finals here
- Nick certainly has what it takes to make the job tougher for Djokovic
Novak Djokovic and Nick Kyrgios are set to battle it out in an iconic Wimbledon final on Sunday at All England Tennis and Lawn Club center court. Novak will be looking for his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title, the seventh in total, while Nick Kyrgios will no doubts enjoy his maiden appearance in the Grand Slam final. The Aussie may have never been in the final of a Grand Slam before, but he certainly knows how to play on the biggest stage against the best players in the world without feeling any kind of pressure.
To win his fourth subsequent Wimbledon crown, Novak will have to beat Kyrgios for the first time in his career. Nick has won both previous head to head encounters against Djokovic. Interestingly, the Serbian has not won a single set in these two affairs with Kyrgios. Both these matches were played in 2017 in Acapulco and Indian Wells. Nick Kyrgios has been fantastic so far in the tournament and we expect him to cause Novak problems once again. You can back the Over 41.5 games in the match pick at the odds of +100.
Key Stat: Both players have already played five sets so far in the tournament
- Djokovic won only two of six matches in straight sets this year at Wimbledon
- Nick Kyrgios pulled off great wins over Krajinovic, Tsitsipas, Nakashima, and Garin so far in the tournament
- The value is huge in the +550 odds offered for Novak to win in five sets
Looking for the best-value picks for the men’s final at The Championships, we simply have to go with the correct score pick. We all see Novak Djokovic as the big favorite for the win, but at the same time we were all impressed by Nick Kyrgios’ dominant performances on the way to the final. Also, the Australian should be much more rested going into the final since he did not play the semifinal tie against Rafael Nadal at all. If we add the fact that Kyrgios has won both previous H2H encounters with Djokovic, we would by no means be surprised to see the Aussie claiming a set or two in the final. The value is much better with the latter option and we are going with Novak Djokovic to win 3-2 at the +550 odds.
