2015 Wimbledon Live TV, Online Preview Coverage & Odds

The 2015 Wimbledon live TV coverage is set to get underway bright and early here in the States on Monday, June 29 as the world’s best tennis players gather in the UK to battle it out for one of the biggest prizes in tennis. Wimbledon is always a big draw for tennis fans across the world as millions of viewers will be tuning in to watch matches on TV thanks to ESPN, ESPN2 and live online coverage provided by ESPN3 and Watch ESPN.

The 2014 defending champions Novak Djokovic and Petra Kvitova are both once again favored to retain their titles as Las Vegas odds makers have these predicted to make the finals of their bracket. Djokovic is the biggest favorite on the odds board on either side of the competition at 5/4 odds while Kvitova is set at 7/2 odds, second only behind Serena Williams at 7/4.

While the favorites may be listed, other notable stars to keep an eye on include Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal for the men, as well as Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka for the women. It wouldn’t surprise many tennis fans, or Vegas book makers for that matter, if either of these three men’s stars or two ladies end up making it to the finals.

Just like any sports, tennis tournaments like this one are hard to pick a clear cut winner on the Vegas board because the players are all good. Except the lower seeds and/or first time participants, it wouldn’t be a real shock if any of the top 10-15 seeds from either the men’s or woman’s side walked away with the title. ¬†Below is a glance at the odds for the top 10 favorites, and the TV schedule for the first full week of action.

Odds and second week action will be updated as the tournament progresses.
