Betting on the outcome of Tennis matches is increasingly popular among sports bettors. The most popular Tennis wager is the outright betting market for the tournament winner. There are markets available on all the major tennis events world wide for both men and women’s tournaments.

Betting on the major tennis tournaments in the UK has received renewed interest in recent years with Tim Henman and Andy Murray flying the flag for Britain.

By careful study of the draw and close monitoring of the international tennis scene, it is possible to find some big prices for rising new talent.

Many professional sports gamblers base their tennis betting on recent form, studying every detail of the player’s build up and injuries prior to the big events… The surface can also play a big part in the outcome of a tournament with grass, clay and hardcourt specialists. Wimbledon is the only major tournament played on grass whilst the French Open takes place on a clay court. The Australian and US Open’s take place on hard courts. The grass court favours serve and volley players such as Roger Federer whilst a clay court favours the players more inclined to stay at the back of the court such as Rafael Nadal.

Another popular tennis wager is match betting. With the draw favouring the top players, many punters look for several seeded players the individual odds can be prohibitive. Punters can still make a decent profit if they are able to link several winning favourites in accumulative win bets. There are no restrictions on combining men’s and women’s tennis for doubles and upwards. It is prudent to check the individual head-to-head for matches as some players can develop a hoodoo against players ranked considerably lower than themselves.

Other Tennis betting opportunities include set betting. You can bet on the final set score of the match e.g. If you believe that a player is good enough to take one set from one of the top seeds but not good enough to win the match, you can bet the 3-1 scoreline. You can also bet on the first set winner so, if you fancy a notorious fast starter you can back them to grab an early lead. The advancement of technology means that there are more options than ever in live betting. You can now watch the games live and make your judgement “in play”. If you are going to get involved in live betting you will have to be able to make instant decisions. The odds change quickly and the markets can be suspended temporarily at the end of each set. Sometimes there are some big odds offered against players making a comeback from two sets down and the momentum of the match can change dramatically if they close the gap to 2-1.
