Tennis is a very popular sport to bet on internationally. Whether it's a Grand Slam event or a regional tournament of a smaller stature, our betting insights are top notch and give you the good word on where the value is.
Tennis is a great sport to bet on. Is a particular player better on clay, grass or hard-court? Does another player perform better against big serving opponents? What's even better is that there is so much tennis to bet on! As tennis betters we can make money almost every day of the year. We know the players form and tendencies, we do well as the markets for these tournaments tend to be flooded with money from bettors who don't know their tennis but just want to have a casual bet. This flood of casual money at the big tournaments usually bends the odds in our favor.
Another great aspect of tennis betting is that we do not have to limit ourselves to just betting on win/loss outcomes. Amongst tennis, the most popular bets are set and game handicaps. For example, a particular player might be very short odds to win. A bookmaker may make the sets handicap -2.5 sets. What does this mean? Well it means the player has to win by more than 2 sets, or in other words 3 sets to 0. If they do this, we win our bet. We can bet the same with games betting. A player might be given a +8.5 games handicap. What this means is that that player can still lose, but so long as they lose by 8 games or fewer, we still win our bet.
We often bet on set or games totals. With this bet, we are predicting that a match will end either over or under a particular number of sets or games. A particular match might have a total games over/under of 34.5. We can simply bet that the match will end over 34 games or under 35 games. It does not matter which player wins, you just have to pick the over/under correctly. This is great for matches where both players are evenly matched.
