Serena Williams – -192.31 at Bovada
Simona Halep – +155
Serena Williams is on track to make history this weekend at the 2019 Wimbledon Championships.
If she lifts the trophy on Saturday, the American will equal Margaret Court’s long-standing record of 24 grand slam singles titles.
It would also be her eighth singles crown at Wimbledon, bringing her one step closer to Martina Navratilova’s high mark of nine.

Standing in Serena’s way is Simona Halep, who is angling for her second career title in the grand slams.
But for a three-set tussle with Mihaela Buzarnescu in the second round, the Romanian has had a breezy run to the final that included a 6-1 6-3 demolition of Elina Svitolina in the semis.
Williams made similarly short work of Barbora Strycova (6-1 6-2) in the last four and has dropped only two sets for the tournament, so both players bring red-hot form into Saturday’s final.

Over 21.5 total games – -125 at Bovada
These two have played each other three times in the majors. While Serena won all three, each of those matches went over 22 games – 24 at Wimbledon 2011, 27 at US Open 2016, and 27 again at Australian Open 2019.
Both players to win a set – +120 at Bovada
Williams has won nine of her 10 clashes with Halep, but that figure doesn’t tell the whole story. Three of the last five meetings have gone to three sets, including their bout at the Australian Open earlier this year.
Serena Williams to win 2-1 – +260 at Bovada
While Halep has a history of taking Williams to the wire, the Romanian’s only win in this fixture came at the WTA Championships way back in 2014. Serena will claim her first major title since 2017 and go one step closer to outright ownership of the all-time record.
