Wimbledon, with its unique seeding process, always provides a bit of intrigue for oddsmakers. 

This year, home-grown hero and defending champion Andy Murray leapfrogged over Roger Federer and Stanislas Wawrinka to claim the No. 3 seed. Still, Murray is not the favorite. 

According to Odds Shark, Serena Williams and Novak Djokovic are considered the odds-on favorites to win at the All England Club. They are also the top seeds. 

Wimbledon arrives with the top of the men's and women's professional tennis tours looking remarkably similar. Three of the Top Five on the ATP and WTA Tours are perennial top-tier players. Each tour has a Top-Five newbie ranked No. 3. The fifth-ranked player on each tour is a Wimbledon champion who has climbed back among the elite after missing the latter part of last season.

Even after a turbulent Wimbledon in 2013, oddsmakers love the front-runners. Despite lackluster performances at the Australian Open and the French Open, Williams is favored 6-5; Djokovic, 7-4. 

Will Djokovic and Williams regain their dominant form? Or could we see a pair of first-time Wimbledon champions? 

It will all be sorted out over the fortnight, beginning June 23. Until then, here are the odds and predictions for title favorites.
