Barty vs Pliskova: Wimbledon Women’s Final Betting Tips

This final could be a classic with top seed Barty facing a rival she certainly has not dominated in the past. Here are three potential betting markets you may want to check out at the top sportsbooks.

Three sets

Between them, Barty and Pliskova have been taken to three sets on just three occasions so far this summer. Both have dominated their serve and proved deadly on the baseline. And we could well see an attritional match here on Centre Court. Don’t be surprised if this goes into a third set.

Few breaks

If you open your betting apps hoping to bet on a match with plenty of breaks then look elsewhere, because we’re unlikely to witness too many breaks of serve here. Barty is one of the most dominant servers in the game and lost just one of six break points during her semi-final win over Angelique Kerber. Pliskova, meanwhile, surrendered just one break point across her entire three-set victory over Aryna Sabalenka.

Tiebreaks

With the above bet in mind, it’s very likely that this final could go into more than one tiebreak. Barty has been taken to just two tiebreaks all tournament but she hasn’t come up against the return power of Pliskova yet. Both players are happy to knock the ball on the baseline and work their way into points. It could therefore be an energy-sapping afternoon at Wimbledon that goes the distance.

Barty vs Pliskova: Wimbledon Women’s Final Prediction

Looking at the sports betting odds and the form guide, Barty should narrowly win this encounter. These players have met eight times in the past and each boasts four victories. The most recent was Pliskova in the Madrid Masters final, but that was just days after Barty beat the Czech sensation in the Stuttgart final.

There’s very little to split the players but experience could edge the match Barty’s way. As for prop bets, the obvious one is this match goes into a third set. Another is the tempting proposition of a bagel in one of the sets. Both Barty and Pliskova won a set to love against the other this year – so it’s not completely impossible that it happens again.
