World No. 5 Marin Cilic is the top dog in this quarter. The Croat enters the tournament on great form after taking the title at Queen’s Club, where he beat Gilles Muller and current seeds Fernando Verdasco, Sam Querrey, Nick Kyrgios and Novak Djokovic.

Cilic has recently been a picture of consistency at Wimbledon, advancing to the quarterfinal or better in each of the past four years (including the final last season). Cilic proved at this year’s Aussie Open that he’s got the skill to test Roger Federer in a Slam final (pushing the Swiss to five sets), and if he can raise his game this year, then he can improve upon last year’s final run at SW19 and win his second major title.

Let’s examine this quarter a little more from a betting perspective by looking at some of the historical head-to-head records and values in the futures market and first round.
