  • Sean Zerillo previews Friday's Semifinal action at the All England Club between Novak Djokovic and Roberto Bautista Agut and suggests a few bets that have value.

While the undercard semifinal between Roberto Bautista Agut (“RBA”) and Novak Djokovic doesn’t have quite the same allure at the 40th all-time meeting between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, it is an exciting match nonetheless.

RBA is in the midst of his deepest run ever at a Slam, having dropped just one set, while Djokovic finds himself in his ninth Wimbledon semifinal, in search of his fifth Wimbledon title in defense of his 2018 crown.

For his career, RBA is 0-9 against Federer and 0-3 against his compatriot Nadal, but he has beaten Djokovic both times that they have played in 2019, as a +388 underdog in Miami (hard court), and as a +398 underdog in Doha (hard court).

Can he pull yet another upset as an even more significant underdog?
