Murray Has Bookies Fearing First Hammering Of The Games
Andy Murray is through to the final of the Olympic tennis and William Hill make him 7/4 to win the gold medal in a repeat of the Wimbledon Final.
Roger Federer is 2/5 for victory and 2/1 for a straight sets victory. Almost a third of all Olympic tennis bets have been on the Brit as patriotic punters have really got behind Murray and a gold medal win could result in a hefty payout from William Hill.
"Obviously we have had results go against us during the first week of the Games, but a win for Murray would represent our first major hit," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "We wouldn't mind seeing him do it for GB though."
