8/15 Federer makes punters a Murray mint

We can’t boast too heavily about tipping an 8/15 winner, but we told you Roger Federer was a good thing in the Men’s Wimbledon final and looked amazing value at the odds to beat Andy Murray.

It is not often we advocate an odds-on shot as a good bet. In fact we are likely to find any reason under the sun to oppose a short price, except when that short price is huge value. In reality Federer should have been 1/4 to beat Murray and we are not talking in hindsight. I don’t like to say we told you so . . . erm . . . but we kinda told you so.

It may have seemed obvious, but not to every punter as outclassed Murray was available as short as 6/4 and best priced at just 7/4. The weight of misplaced patriotic money skewed the odds massively to the advantage of those objective punters not lobotomised by the media hype.

We hope you helped yourself, just as we did.
