2018 Wimbledon odds, predictions for women's final: Red-hot tennis expert picks Serena Williams vs. Angelique Kerber

Serena Williams goes for her ninth Wimbledon crown Saturday, less than 11 months after dealing with blood clots following the birth of her daughter. Williams is a -210 sportsbook favorite (risk $210 to win $100) in the 2018 Wimbledon women's final over 11th-seeded Angelique Kerber of Germany, who's getting +175 (risk $100 to win $175). In eight career matches against Williams, Kerber has two wins. The former world No. 1 is gunning for her third Grand Slam title, first at the All England Club.

Before you make your 2018 Wimbledon picks on the sides, total games or various props, you have to hear what British tennis expert Sean Calvert says. An Essex resident, Calvert has been releasing documented, profitable bets for six straight years, and he owns this event in his home country. 

In Wednesday's quarterfinals on the men's side, Calvert knew Roger Federer would be in for a long day against Kevin Anderson. The result: Calvert cashed big on over 33.5 games and Anderson plus-six games as Federer shockingly went down in a five-set thriller.

Calvert also nailed +120 underdog John Isner beating Milos Raonic. For the 2018 Wimbledon, he's up nearly $700. It's not a fluke, either. In 2013 and 2016, Calvert called Andy Murray winning Wimbledon despite Novak Djokovic entering as the favorite each time.

Before Wimbledon, Calvert struck it rich on Isner winning the Miami Open at 100-1. Calvert's legendary calls also include Stan Wawrinka winning the 2014 Australian Open at 60-1 and Jack Sock winning the 2017 Paris Masters at 80-1. Anyone who has followed him is way, way up.

Now, Calvert has analyzed this must-see Wimbledon women's final and locked in two best bets. He's sharing them over at SportsLine.

Calvert knows Williams, making her 10th Wimbledon final appearance, looks to have worked off the rust following her layoff. She had played only seven matches between winning the 2017 Australian Open and withdrawing injured from this year's French Open.

Williams dominated Germany's Julia Gorges 6-2, 6-4 in the semis, while Kerber handled Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko 6-3, 6-3.

Williams and Kerber also met in the 2016 Wimbledon final, with Williams winning 7-6, 6-3. But Kerber comes in this year with possibly a better chance to pull the upset.

The left-hander made only seven unforced errors in the semifinals, while her opponent made 36. Kerber is hungry, focused and motivated following a disappointing 2017.
