As the men take the court at Wimbledon today, many are expecting the favourites to dominate the competition, yet finding value in the market looks to be a challenge unless you look at the stats and set betting.

Here are our betting recommendations for the 2017 Wimbledon mens quarter finals. 

A.Murray vs. S.Querrey (1 pm)

Recommended Bet: Andy Murray to win 3-1 @ 5/2

The Wimbledon champion returns to Centre Court today to take on the challenging American prospect Sam Querrey.

Murray, who has only dropped one set all tournament, is looking on track to progress despite a worrying injury cloud hovering over his head from the start of the competition.

Querrey, however, looks on form himself after defeating Kevin Anderson in a five-set thriller. Murray should win this battle as he has won seven out of their eight previous meetings.

At odds of 5/2, there is value in the market of Murray dropping a set and going on to win.

G.Muller vs. M.Cilic (1 pm)

Recommended Bet: Cilic to win 3-0 @ 5/4

Marin Cilic has not put a foot wrong all tournament, dominating all of his matches in straight sets. As he faces the man who surprisingly knocked out Rafael Nadal, Gilles Muller, it's another opportunity for Cilic to show his class and throw himself amongst the big four.

These two have only met twice during their careers, one of them was a recent meeting at this year's Queen's Club where Cilic beat Muller in straight sets in the semi final.

With odds at 5/4, it's not a massive amount of value on a small bet. However, a larger sum could be doubled.

M.Raonic vs. R.Federer (3 pm)

Recommended Bet: Federer to win 3-2 @ 9/2

Now, this is noticeably outside, and many would rather not risk the money on such wide odds. Although if you look at the stats between the pair this could be the biggest value across the market with the favourite Roger Federer still going on to win.

While Federer is another player that has not dropped a set all tournament, over the last three years, Federer has dropped sets at this point in the tournament twice (2014,2015). Not to mention the pair met in the semi-final last season in which Raonic won in a stunning five-set thriller.

Those who have followed Raonic know that he is a fighter and always seems to shine when playing against the world's best. Already this tournament the Canadian has been in two five-set matches.

The market offers such tantalising odds that if it were to go to five-set once again, there would be plenty of return.

T.Berdych vs. N.Djokovic (3 pm)

Recommended Bet: Djokovic to win 3-0 @ 11/8

Novak Djokovic looks to have his sights set on a Wimbledon after a turmoil of a year. After looking across the field and the markets, it's still baffling as to how he is 3/1 to win the tournament outright.

In this year's quarter finals, he meets a man he has defeated an astonishing 25 times out of 27 meetings. Looking back through the pair's previous meetings it has been scarce that Djokovic has dropped a set, in fact, he has only lost two sets to Berdych across their meetings (2010 & 2012), and none of these have come on grass.

Djokovic hasn't dropped a set all tournament, and it will be surprising if he were to do so against a man who he has dominated on grass and at this point of the Wimbledon tournament.

At odds of 11/8 a small flutter will allow for a small gain, however, confident betting is a way for a punter to be able to double their money.
