2021 Wimbledon odds, men’s semifinal predictions, props: Tennis expert reveals Berrettini vs. Hurkacz picks
One man will reach a grand slam final for the first time in his career when Matteo Berrettini and Hubert Hurkacz square off on Friday at 8:30 a.m. ET in a 2021 Wimbledon semifinal at The All England Lawn Tennis Club. A 25-year-old Italian, Berrettini has reached a grand slam semifinal only one other time, losing in the semifinals of the 2019 U.S. Open. Meanwhile Hurkacz is playing in his first grand slam semifinal.
William Hill Sportsbook lists Berrettini as a -250 favorite (risk $250 to win $100) in the latest Berrettini vs. Hurkacz odds, with Hurkacz listed at +190 as the underdog. You can also pick whether Berrettini will cover the 4.5-game spread and how many games the match will last, among other wagering options in the 2021 Wimbledon odds. The winner of the semifinal will face either five-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic or Denis Shapovalov in Sunday’s final. Before finalizing any Hurkacz vs. Berrettini picks, you need to see the Wimbledon 2021 predictions from SportsLine tennis handicapper Sean Calvert.
Calvert is the handicapper who called Stan Wawrinka winning the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1, the last Australian title won by someone other than Djokovic or Federer. In 2019, Calvert took down a huge score on Dominic Thiem winning Indian Wells at 80-1. Anyone following his picks is way up.
Now, Calvert has scrutinized the latest Wimbledon 2021 odds and released his coveted best bets for Berrettini vs. Hurkacz. He’s sharing his Wimbledon picks and expert analysis only at SportsLine.
Berrettini vs. Hurkacz preview
The second Italian man in history to reach the semifinals at Wimbledon and the first in the Open era, Berrettini has used his big serve to carry him at Wimbledon 2021. Through the quarterfinals he has averaged 126 miles per hour on his first serves, which ranks second among players in the field of 128. He also leads the field with 79 aces; Felix Auger-Aliassime, who lost to Berrettini in the quarters, is a distant second with 62.
Berrettini generally plays well on grass surfaces. He won the Queen’s Club tuneup for Wimbledon, losing only one set in five matches en route to the title. Since 2019, he is 21-2 on grass with one of those losses coming to Roger Federer.
How to make Berrettini vs. Hurkacz picks
One of Calvert’s picks is Berrettini to win exactly six games in the first set (-133). But he has two other wagers, both of which offer plus-money payouts, including one that pays about 8-1.
