Andy Murray Preview – Can Murray advance?

Andy Murray is a quote of 10/11 to win this match in Wimbledon betting 2021* (odds taken 11:20 GMT on June 27th).

This is no easy opening match for the two-time Wimbledon champion.

Murray’s last singles action at Wimbledon was a quarter-final exit in 2017.

Because of hip surgeries and other fitness issues, he has not had a lot of top-level competition under his belt.

Murray has appeared in the first round of four of the last twelve Grand Slam events that have been held.

His record from those were two first-round exits and two second-round exits.

There hasn’t been any Grand Slam action from him this year, having missed the Australian and French Opens.

Murray’s warm-up for Wimbledon came at Queen’s recently when he lost in the second round against Matteo Berrettini.

That was the first tournament that Murray had played since Rotterdam in early March.

Our betting prediction:
Basilashvili 3-1 set betting

* (odds taken 11:20 GMT on June 27th)


Of course, Murray will have plenty of home support on his side. But for Wimbledon tennis betting he looks vulnerable.

There is a quote of 4/1 on 3-1 a Set Betting option for Nikoloz Basilashvili in this one* (odds taken 11:20 GMT on June 27th).

Without question, Murray is going to get a stern workout here.

His experience of course is going to help him stick in there under pressure moments. But the longer the match goes on, the advantage of fitness goes to his opponent.

This will be the first meeting between Andy Murry and Nikoloz Basilashvili.


Nikoloz Basilashvili Preview – Can the Georgian take out Murray?

Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili is ranked 28th in the world and is the same 10/11 quote in Wimbledon tennis betting to win the match* (odds taken 11:20 GMT on June 27th).

It has not been a bad season for him either.

In March Basilashvili picked up the Doha title, beating Roger Federer along the way to that success.

That’s one of two titles that he has earned this season. The other was on the clay in Munich in early May.

As for his grass court season, he opened with a second-round defeat in Stuttgart. But then Basilashvili went deep at Halle, Germany.

Starting in the first qualifying round there, he posted six match wins to reach the semi-finals.

He fell there to Andrey Rublev in three sets. But all in all, that was some good competitive form from him.

Importantly as well it gave him plenty of time on court on grass.

Basilashvili carries a 19-16 season record with him into the start of Wimbledon.

The best finish for Nikoloz Basilashvili at Wimbledon came in 2015 when he went to the round of 32, having started in the first qualifying round.

In three of his last four appearances at SW19, he has exited at the second round stage.

So that’s means that there is a decent chance that he gets through this.

For Wimbledon tennis betting a Nikoloz Basilashvili -2.5 Games Handicap is at 3/1* (odds taken 11:20 GMT on June 27th).

We think that the way this goes is that Basilashvili just needs to repel a bit of the early excitement and energy from across the net.

If he does that, then he can embed himself well in this fixture and take the win.
