Raise your hand♂️ if you had Christopher Eubanks as the last American man standing at Wimbledon? One Illinois client actually may have, as an $11.76 wager came in on Eubanks +40000 for a potential win of $4,704.
Eubanks plays tomorrow morning against No. 3 Daniil Medvedev, and is a +360 underdog. So far, Eubanks has racked up 51% of the tickets and 67% of the handle among all moneyline wagers for this match.
We asked Head of Trading Kevin Lawler for his thoughts on this incredible Cinderella story.
LAWLER: “Eubanks’ style of play is simple: serve huge, and be aggressive on the plus one. He likes coming in to the net, finishing points early and making life uncomfortable for opponents. He’s got a unique game that none of the top guys are familiar with since he’s never been at this level before. Medvedev will absolutely be worried here, and Eubanks will have his respect and attention after beating Stefanos Tsitsipas yesterday in a career-best win. Eubanks has been well-backed all tournament and we’ve written some long-priced outright tickets on him to lift the title.”
