Defending champion and four-time Wimbledon winner Novak Djokovic has proven to be a dominant force at the All England Club, so much so that he's now the odds-on favorite to win this year's tournament.

After opening as the favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, as the field continues to dwindle, Djokovic's odds to win continue to improve.

After a straight-set second-round win, Djokovic now has -130 odds to take home the men's singles championship. The Serbian will face an unranked opponent in Hubert Hurkacz, of Poland, in the third round.

As for the tournament's other favorites, according to the odds on FanDuel Sportsbook coming into play Thursday, there's eight-time Wimbledon champ Roger Federer (+300) and 2019 French Open champion Rafael Nadal (+750).

Beyond that, there are a bunch of longshots, including last year's runner-up, Kevin Anderson (+3800) and Canada's Milos Raonic (+2300).

With Djokovic adding former Wimbledon champ Goran Ivanisevic to his coaching staff, something that was met with some controversy, he looked as good as he has in a long while during his second-round match. If Djoker continues to play like he did yesterday, he could become an even heavier favorite, but, again, there's still lots of tennis left to played.
