Andy Roddick

BetUS.com is one of many online sports betting firms offering odds on the 2009 Wimbledon tournament.  And while 2009 Wimbledon futures offer the best possible payouts, daily matchup odds remain tempting, albeit difficult to swallow.

Take Andy Roddick for example:  He's a massive -1200 favorite vs. Jurgen Melzer (who would pay $600 for every $100 bet should he happen to upset Roddick).

A true sports betting enthusiast would jump at the chance to bet on Jurgen Melzer, though few would be as likely to lay down so much money on what appears to be a "sure thing" in Roddick.

"The Austrian (Melzer) was a junior Wimbledon champion but for all his successes early in his career he never converted on them at the pro-level," states Nila Amerova of BetUS.com.  "Nevertheless, Melzer is a dark horse and a potential stumbling block for the American. Roddick would do well not to underestimate Melzer. That said, he owns the series between them, which stands at a whopping 8-0. Though they have never played on grass Roddick should enter this match with all the confidence that his mark against the Austrian should give him along with the newfound self-belief that he has a chance to win a Grand Slam title nurtured by coach Larry Stefanki."

Another lopsided matchup involves Lleyton Hewitt -1000 vs. Philipp Petzschner +500.

"Hewitt enters this match as the huge favourite, priced at -1000. If the Aussie fans that showed up to watch him against Del Potro show up and set up a little Aussie cheerleading section for Hewitt, he might have a bit of home edge feel to this match. Either way, he should top Petzschner relatively easily. The big win over Del Potro must be a huge confidence lift for the Aussie who has been working hard all season long to revive his game after taking an injury timeout last season."

BetUS.com has all your 2009 Wimbledon action and is one of the leading online sports betting websites when it comes to free cash bonuses when opening a new wagering account.

Despite the ads you might see for Draftkings, Oregon bettors are out of luck as Scoreboard is the official (and only) sportsbook licensed by the state, and they don't allow betting on any college games.  The good news is there are still options.
