2012 Wimbledon Championship Betting Lines Murray vs Federer

Andy Murray Looks To Complete Historic Wimbledon Run

With his name stamped in the record books, as the first UK born player in the Wimbledon Men's Final since 1938, Andy Murray can also be the first player from the United Kingdom to win the Championship since Fred Perry won his third straight in 1936. A win would also be the first Grand Slam title for Murray who is playing in his fourth major tournament final. Murray has lost two Grand Slam final matches to Federer.

World Number One Ranking Goes To Federer With A Wimbledon Win

After sitting atop the Association of Tennis Professionals' world ranking list for a record 237 weeks from Feb 2, 2004, to Aug 17, 2008 (and a 48 week run from  '09 to '10) Roger Federer is knocking on the door again. Not only can he win his seventh Wimbledon Championship, but he can also regain the World #1 rank for a third time. Federer is only five years older than Murray, but he's had much more success on the ATP Tour.

Online Bookmakers Favor Federer Over Murray In Wimbledon Men's Final

Top online sportsbooks, recommended here at Sports Betting Sites, are unanimous in making Ferderer the odds on favorite to win the 126th Wimbledon Championship. The six time Champ is -205 chalk at topbet.com while Murray is the pup at +175. It would be an amazing feat for Murray to conquer the tennis championship of his country, and one we'd love to witness, but we'll be backing Federer in the Wimbledon 2012 Men's Final.
