Tennis betting isn’t too different than the bulk of the other mainstream sports. There are win/loss (Moneyline) bets, as well as over/under and all the other betting options you’d expect to find. As well as this, there are additional prop bets, which are unique to certain events and tournaments. Here is a breakdown of all the available betting types for tennis:
Set and game totals are very popular betting lines for tennis fans, allowing bettors to select their favourite players and simply place a wager to see if they’ll come out on top.
Obviously, tennis sets are pivotal to success and can be turning points in the game, which makes for an exciting betting market. Alternatively, bettors can place a simple game-winners bet, which is the most common of all tennis bets.
What’s a double result bet? Well, double result wagers are common and easy to understand! Normally, this type of bet involves wagering on the 1st set of a match, as well as the overall outcome.
Bettors have the choice of choosing players who will win the first set and win the match, or that the player will lose the first set but win the match overall. These types of bets are normally saved for bettors who have a depth of knowledge about the match and players.
With a variety of bets available, it can be very confusing when it comes to selecting the right betting line. Well, we can’t say which is the best per se, but the most popular lines among tennis bettors are Moneyline, Set Spread and the Over/Under.
