In fact, his victory over last year’s winner Novak Djokovic puts him one match from winning it all for the eighth time. But he must get past Andy Murray to tie Pete Sampras for a record seven titles.
With six Wimbledon titles already won and only one loss in seven title shots, it is no surprise that Bovada Sportsbook has tagged him as the betting favorite in their 2012 Men’s Wimbledon Finals Betting Odds. He enters the match with a moneyline set at -225 while Murray goes in with a +175 line.
Many feel that with him being in his 30’s, Federer could be winding down his career. But with the way he has played at Wimbledon this year it suggests otherwise.
Heading into Sunday’s finals, Murray has the edge in overall meetings with Federer with an 8-7 record. But playing in finals on the biggest of stages has not fared well for Murray where he is 0-3 in Grand Slam Finals with two of those losses coming to Federer. Not to mention, he hasn’t even won a set.
Bovada has also fielded some great Federer vs. Murray Prop Bets to wager on as well. One is based on the 1st Set Winner and with Murray’s history, Federer obviously gets the edge in this wager with a moneyline set at -175 while Murray is at +135.
The OVER/UNDER in games is another wager available and the line has been set at 42 1/2. Also wagers can be placed on the Total Games being ODD or EVEN with a moneyline attached to each wager.
There are other great props available for this year’s Wimbledon Men’s Finals between Federer and Murray which range in variety. Coverage for the match is set for Sunday at 9:00 am ET and can be seen on ESPN.
