We finally had a full day of tennis with the London weather cooperating so we officially can say we’ve moved on past the first round for everyone. Within the craziness we’ve had court issues, big time upsets, and impressive performances. We’ll go searching for the latter with 21-matches to parse through for tennis DFS purposes. Hopefully the rest of the week rolls a little smoother in all facets. Let’s makes some picks for Thursday, July 1st.
Top Wimbledon FanDuel Tennis DFS Picks Today
To help make one of the many difficult decisions, I will be using Awesemo’s industry-leading tennis DFS projections, which also include regressed match data and outcome probabilities.
Marin Cilic ($21)
Opponent: Benjamin Bonzi
Odds: -500 (SugarHouse)
Marin Cilic is one of the largest favorite’s on this tennis DFS slate and with his big edge in experience it adds up. The Croatian has played 117 matches (87-30 W-L Overall) on grass in comparison to the 12 (10-2 W-L) for his counterpart Benjamin Bonzi. Both players do come in with very strong form but Cilic has done so versus multiple accomplished players while Bonzi’s best win would be Damir Dzumhur (128th).
Cilic is known as a “big game player” with his strong overall game. His 69% Win Percentage, recent form, and experience all justify the price tag in all formats. With his Ace upside (four straight in double digits), sweep probability (45%), and 81% Elo probability he makes for a top-tier play on this slate.Check out the AwesemoOdds home page for more sports betting content, including more picks and predictions.
Sam Querrey ($20)
Opponent: James Duckworth
Odds: -315 (SugarHouse)
The Americans have fared well so far at Wimbledon and Sam Querrey is just another. The vet Querrey has strung together a somewhat surprisingly nice run of matches now on grass with 8 wins in 11 tries. He’s now the beneficiary of facing a lesser opponent in James Duckworth in the second round after defeating Pablo Carreno-Busta. As any regular tennis DFS player knows Querrey often provides us a great floor with his service game. So far this season on grass he’s posted double digit Ace numbers with 20+ on four occasions.
The recent list of casualties (which includes Duckworth in Germany) and surface history confirm the odds and big time Elo advantage (82%) for the American. Duckworth plays a very emotional game and Querrey’s ability to control the match should work to his advantage.
