WImbledon 2015 Men's Doubles Final

Jamie Murray has come a long way to reach the Wimbledon Men's Doubles final on Saturday.

Although he has twelve career titles to his name he has always had to live in the shadow of his younger brother, Andy. There's no doubting that Andy is the better player overall, but Jamie is a fine player in his own right. We should not forget that he took the Wimbledon Mixed Doubles title in 2007, long before Andy finally became the man to end the British Men's Singles drought.

Strange though it may seem, Jamie might not have been here at all this year. After early success in his career alongside American Eric Butorac, Jamie Murray was in something of a slump, and by 2009 had drifted a long way from the top 100 rankings. He considered leaving the family business behind, but then in early 2013 he hooked up with Australian John Peers.
The pair of them have worked together solidly ever since, improving and improving, and the result is this: they have reached the Men's Doubles final at Wimbledon, despite being seeded just thirteenth at the start of the tournament.

Their opponents in the final will be the fourth seeded pair of Jean-Julien Rojer from the Netherlands and Horia Tecau from Romania. Their path to the final has been relatively smooth compared to Murray and Peers, with fewer dropped sets until they reached the semi final.

The semi final was a different story though. While Murray/Peers dropped their first set but then won the next three, helped slightly by an opponent with a knee injury, the Rojer/Tecau pairing went to five sets in their semi final. They eventually prevailed by eleven games to nine in the final set, but the additional effort will not have done them any favours going into the final.

So where are the best odds to be found? Well, given the way they've played so far Murray/Peers are definitely on form and stand a serious chance going into the final. Knowing as they now do that they won't get to see Andy in the Men's Singles Final on Sunday, there's no doubt the crowd will get behind Britain's last remaining hope for a title. We think Murray/Peers are worth backing, and the best place to do it is at BetFred, who are offering a reasonable 13/8.

That said, the higher seeded Rojer/Tecau pairing have shown grit to reach the final, and with a day to recover their extended semi final match might not have any real affect on them. If you fancy them for victory you can find them at PaddyPower at a market leading 8/15.

Our longer odds hunch is that the game will go to five sets, and you can back Murray/Peers to win in five sets at a very tempting 13/2 over at SkyBet.

Wimbledon 2015 - Andy Murray vs Vasek Pospisil

Andy Murray continues his Wimbledon charge on Wednesday, facing off against the Canadian Vasek Pospisil.

Pospisil is ranked 56th in the world, and has never reached the quarter finals at any Grand Slam before. He has raised comment by referring to a notebook during changeovers. It contains notes and reminders to keep him focused during a game, and so far it seems to be working well.

As well as getting past the third round int he singles, he has also progressed in the doubles, where he knocked out Andy Murray's brother Jamie. Unusually, all but one of his matches so far have gone to five sets, and the remaining match went to four. Murray is hopeful that Pospisil will be tired when they face off - playing in the doubles as well means the Canadian spent a full eight hours on court on Monday.

There is of course the possibility that so much tennis will simply be keeping Pospisil in condition. Murray worked harder than he would have liked to overcome Andreas Seppi, and Pospisil is undoubtedly on good form.

Murray has previously won all their matches in straight sets, and he is odds on to do so again on Wednesday. If you want to back him to win by three sets to love, the best place we found was at Coral who are offering a decent 1/3.

However, Murray has dropped sets in both his last two games and has proven to be shaky at certain points in his matches. Nobody expected him to drop the third set to Seppi last time out - unless you checked here on Bonus Betting where we predicted it. We have a hunch he might not fly through any more easily on Wednesday, especially given his opponent has forced out some gruelling games thus far.

We're tipping Murray to win by three sets to one again, and the best place to back that is at SkyBet, who are boosting the price out to 4/1.

Finally, for a longer odds bet, we're leaning towards Murray coming out of the gates firing on all cylinders. You can pick him up to win the first set by six games to one over at Ladbrokes, who will give you a very tempting 7/1.
