The Line: -- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo and second seeds for the Men's doubles at Wimbledon. The Polish and Brazilian pair have big expectations for this tournament and will begin their campaign against English pair of Luke Bambridge and Jonny O’Mara. I am expecting this to be a great game of tennis since there are top quality players involved.
Luke Bambridge and Jonny O’Mara are in great form as the pair won the doubles tournament at ATP Eastbourne a few days ago. This will give both players tons of confidence as they head into this clash. Both these English players are 23-years-old and there is great promise for this pair. This pair has been playing together for a while and that is something that will come in handy in a big tournament since most teams are made much more recently. While it is obvious to see that Luke Bambridge and Jonny O’Mara are not the most talented players individually, there chemistry and teamwork will be very important as that is something that many teams don’t have.

Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo, on the other hand, are coming off a disappointing French Open. This duo has tons of experience and although they have had a few good tournaments since Roland Garros, there will be hope of improvement. Wimbledon is one of the best tournaments for Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo and the grass courts seem to suit the style of play for both players. Considering both players are aged in their mid-thirties, winning this tournament will be very important since neither has a very long career left. I am expecting a very determined performance from the duo.
All in all, I am going to predict that Lukasz Kubot and Marcelo Melo will win this match. They are the better players and have much more experience than their opponents. As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good enough price to wager on the number 2 seeds winning so that seems like the best bet to make.
