Andy Murray: Tipped for further glory in 2013

Andy Murray: Tipped for further glory in 2013

Sky Bet give us their 10 best bets for 2013 throughout the sporting world, with Andy Murray tipped for further glory and David Price to make his mark.

Andy Murray to win Wimbledon at 11/4

The Scot showed last year that he can produce his best tennis on the grass of SW19 and, armed with the confidence of his first Grand Slam win and with Roger Federer surely finally on the decline, this is the perfect time for him to deliver.

Shakhtar Donetsk to win the Champions League (each way) at 28/1

With an abundance of financial force behind them, the Ukrainian champions have constructed a talented side which has now settled into a genuine force that are extremely hard to beat at the Donbass Arena.

Warrington to complete rugby league's 'double' at 8/1

The Wolves were only 20 minutes away from achieving this in 2012. With a another year of experience in the big games, the Challenge Cup and Grand Final double will be the target for 2013.

Novak Djokovic to win the French Open at 2/1

The knee injuries which have blighted Rafael Nadal's career make him hugely opposable to retain his French Open crown at an odds-on price. World number one Novak Djokovic is in line to inherit.

David Price to win a world title at 7/2

The British heavyweight is edging closer to a world-title shot following a glorious 2012, with Wladimir Klitschko the ultimate target in 2013. Price must first defeat two-time title challenger Tony Thompson in February to stand any chance.

Chelsea to win the Europa League at 13/2

Rafael Benitez's record in Europe speaks for itself and the interim boss will be desperate to pick up as much silverware as possible with the Premier League seemingly out of sight. Already boasting by far the best squad in the competition, the Blues can cruise to glory with reinforcements expected in January.

Chris Froome to win the Tour de France at 11/4

With Bradley Wiggins aiming for the Giro d'Italia and Mark Cavendish departing to Omega Pharma-Quick Step, Chris Froome looks set to have the full backing of the Team Sky juggernaut in the 2013 edition of the Tour de France.

Arabella Boy to win Glenfarclas Cross Country Chase at 7/1

The young chaser has improved for switching to this discipline. Should flourish with the likely better ground at the Cheltenham Festival and looks a natural successor to the likes of Spot Thedifference and Garde Champetre.

Louis Oosthuizen to win the Race to Dubai at 14/1

The 2012 calendar again showed that form in the big events is the most important thing, so if Louis Oosthuizen, who is already a major winner and is getting better and better, can just convert those regular top-five finishes into one or two more wins then he's got a great chance.

Surrey to win the County Championship at 8/1

If the rest of the domestic circuit hadn't been paying attention to Surrey, the signing of South Africa skipper Graeme Smith as player/captain for next season has certainly grabbed it. His arrival, albeit delayed, combined with that of ex-England batsman Vikram Solanki and experienced left-arm spinner Gary Keedy make the Lions a tempting 8/1 to land their first Division One title since 2002.
