Wimbledon Odds: Ladies’ Singles
Swiatek The Rightful Favorite
Iga Swiatek is the favorite. She has tallied four Grand Slams since beginning her pro career in 2016. Her best available odds are +400 at PointsBet, at the time of publish. Sports betting odds across the United States price her between +333 and +400.
Swiatek possesses the most weeks as the world No. 1 (65) among active WTA players. In her most recent victory over Tatjana Maria at Bad Homburg, she secured a 15th 6-0 set in 2023. The last player to claim 15+ 6-0 sets in consecutive calendar years at WTA events was Martina Hingis in 2000 and 2001.
Nevertheless, the world’s oldest tennis tournament is the only Grand Slam event played on grass. That has seemingly been Swiatek’s Kryptonite, going 10-6 on that surface. Ironically, her win over Maria — 2022 Wimbledon semifinalist — was her first grass-court match of the season.

Will The Defending Champion Reclaim The Crown?
Next up on most odds boards is Elena Rybakina (+550), who won the Wimbledon ladies’ singles title in 2022. But after withdrawing from the Eastbourne International on Monday, Rynbakina’s status may be up in the air. At the least, defending her Grand Slam title will be a more arduous task.
“I am still recovering from the virus I had in Paris, and after Roland Garros it was really tough,” she said. “I also picked up another small issue in Berlin.”
Keep in mind, Rynbakina also recorded an early exit from the French Open for the same issue. Meanwhile, Aryna Sabalenka — the world No. 2 — is gunning for her second Grand Slam after winning the 2023 Australian Open. Sabalenka’s odds are set at +450 at BetMGM Sportsbook.

Best Hopes For Wimbledon Champion From United States
No American has won the ladies’ singles title at Wimbledon since Serena Williams won her seventh Wimbledon title in 2016.
Coco Gauff (listed as Cori Gauff at DraftKings) has the shortest odds of any American at +2800. She has only reached the fourth round twice in singles at Wimbledon, in 2019 and 2021. Gauff sits No. 7 in the WTA world rankings.
The top-ranked American in the WTA rankings is Jessica Pegula, who currently sits at No. 4 in the world. At the time of publish, her Wimbledon odds were as long as +4000 at PointsBet but as short as +1600 at BetMGM. She’s never reached a semifinal in any Grand Slam singles tournament and has only reached the third round at Wimbledon.
As a precursor to Wimbledon, Gauff and Pegula will actually face each other in the quarterfinals of the Rothesay International Eastbourne in Great Britain on Thursday, June 29.
Best of luck with all your bets on Wimbledon odds this year.
