There’s a new big three in the world of tennis, and they’re all on the women’s side of the draw. For yet another grand slam, it’s Iga Świątek, Elena Rybakina and Aryna Sabalenka who are expected to lift the trophy.
Let’s break down the best ways to bet on the Women’s field at the All England Club this year.
Wimbledon Women’s Winner Prediction
Aryna Sabalenka (+550) • PointsBet Sportsbook
(Tennis odds used for these women’s Wimbledon picks are current as of Thursday, June 29.)
There’s not much left to say about Sabalenka. She lost a heartbreaking semifinal match against Karolína Muchová in the semifinals of the French Open from 5-2 up in the third, but aside from that she’s been pretty much unflappable.
At 3-7 for the year and 12-6 on grass over the last three, I think she fits the bill of a Wimbledon champion. Elena Rybakina enters with health concerns and Iga Świątek is no good on glass. Run with the big serve and forehand of Sabalenka.
Wimbledon Women’s Contenders
Wimbledon winner betting lines were found at FanDuel Sportsbook and are fresh as of Wednesday, June 28 at 4:00 p.m. ET.
Here’s how the top Wimbledon women’s favorites rank:
- Iga Świątek (+260)
- Rybakina (+430)
- Aryna Salabenka (+460)
- Petra Kvitová (+1200)
- Ons Jabeur (+1400)
- Karolina Muchová (+1400)
- Barbora Krejčíková (+2000)
- Coco Gauff (+2500)
We’re seeing a shift in the landscape of tennis with the men’s side of things becoming wide open when we get to a grand slam, and the women’s side being run by the same three players. With a win at Wimbledon last year, Rybakina is the top contender to World No. 1 Świątek, and Petra Kvitová’s title on the grass last week has her looking ready to make a run.

Wimbledon Women’s Best Bet
Ons Jabeur (+1400)
FanDuel Sportsbook • WAGER: 1 unit
I do think that Sabalenka is ultimately going to win this tournament, and I still like her as my best bet at +550.
With that said, there’s a lot to like here with Ons Jabeur. She may be 1-2 on the grass this year, but since the start of 2021, she’s 22-5 on the surface, and she also reached the Wimbledon final last year where she took a set off of Rybakina.
Rybakina enters this tournament with health concerns, after she withdrew from Roland Garros with an illness and was experiencing another illness a week ago.
Whether or not her body is ready, the lack of matches may make her a little vulnerable. Świątek is good on this surface, but she’s certainly not any better than Rybakina or Sabalenka. She can be beaten.
Even Sabalenka comes into this one off of a very slow grass season and always has mental hurdles she must overcome.
I think there are enough questions with the top three favorites here that you can find a lot of value in last year’s finalist with this tennis best bet.

Wimbledon Women’s Sleeper Bet
Belinda Bencic (+7000)
PointsBet Sportsbook • WAGER: 0.4 units
I understand the odds here, because Belinda Bencic has yet to play a grass-court match this year and hasn’t been seen since her first-round exit at Roland Garros.
With that said, I think she’s got more of a chance than oddsmakers are giving her. Bencic has just as much grass experience as anyone, with a 53-25 lifetime record across all levels and is 20-7 this year overall.
She’s made runs at slams and has proven to be a top-20 player when in form, so who’s to say she can’t gain some here at the All England Club and make a run?
