Rafael Nadal Odds Narrowing Greatly Following French Open Win

Tennis, more so than probably any other sport in the world, is all about momentum.

When a player on the tour gets hot, they can be practically unstoppable. Andy Murray, for instance, went on a run in 2016 that saw him take over the #1 ranking in the world.

For this reason, many punters are betting on Rafael Nadal to win Wimbledon.

Nadal, who has 8/1 to win at most sports books prior to winning his 10th French Open title earlier today, has seen his odds drop to as little as 5/1 at some sports books as many punters back the Spaniard to win at Wimbledon.

In fact, Rafael Nadal, according to many online sports books, is THE most popular bet right now when it comes to the men's side of the bracket at Wimbledon.

Nadal is seeing more money bet on him than Andy Murray, Roger Federer or Novak Djokovic, who are all being given better odds to win at Wimbledon.

Nadal has not won a Wimbledon title in seven years (his last title came in 2010), though given the thoroughness of his domination at Roland Garros, many punters believe that Nadal could easily win another grass title.

Nadal has a new coach and seems to be on the high ebb of his confidence right now. As we have seen in the past, a confident Nadal is a powerful Nadal, and it is hard to bet against Rafael to win at Wimbledon.

In terms of wagers, Rafael Nadal at 6/1 to win Wimbledon seems to be a pretty good bet.
