Tennis Betting Guide

Man Playing Tennis

With the number of tournaments and matches to choose from, it’s no surprise that tennis is a popular sport for bettors. And with so many markets available to take bets on during each match or tournament there are plenty more reasons why this game continues as one of the most in-demand sports among those who enjoy wagering on their favourite players. 

The sport of tennis has grown in popularity for the last 20 years in Canada, because it’s been fun to watch people like Milos Raonic and Bianca Andreescu play. There are many great players now too – Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic all rank among them! 

Betting On Tennis 

The thrill and excitement of tennis can really get your blood pumping. Tennis betting may be more popular than ever thanks not only the entertainment factor that keeps you on the edge of your seat during every match but because bookmakers offer live streaming which means no need to subscribe expensive channels or cable TV! 

Online Betting On Tennis 

The markets for a tournament are dependent on the size and level of play. Here is our guide to some of the most popular ones at Grand Slams, ATP tournaments and WTA matches. 

Betting markets come in all shapes and sizes depending on what event you are betting on – be it an ATP tournament or a match at Wimbledon! 

Match Betting 

Betting on matches can be tricky. Some sportsbooks have different rules for betting, so it’s important to understand the specifics of your bet before you make a decision. For example, if I place my money and one player retires from play due to injury in the middle of the match – does that count as void? This all depends on what kind of bets you’re considering placing: some are only valid when both players win their set or at least complete it; others require just one team member winning a single game against another opponent. 

Correct Score 

With tennis betting, you can bet on the outcome of a match. The correct score market is one type of bet that allows players to predict what they think will be the end result in an event. If a player retires before completing their matches all bets are voided and refunded as voids. 

Total Games In A Match 

In the big matches, there will be a market for how many games in total are played during the match. Pitting your wits against other punters to see who can guess closest without going over or under by too much is always exciting and often more popular among those on one side of the bet – but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it even if you’re not sure which player will win! 

Handicap Betting 

The most popular form of tennis betting takes place on the handicap markets. All too often these days, players who are emphatic favourites are offered at restrictive odds, but if you think they can win easily back them with a set number of games or alternatively bet in favour for an underdog to cover a specified amount of game sets. This is probably the best market to bet on!
