To place bets on and make money from tennis games, here’s what you need to know:
Depending on the tournament, the options available can vary. Men’s singles and doubles matches may consist of up to five sets while women’s singles matches are usually best of three sets.
In this market, you have the chance to predict how many sets a tennis game will have. Will a player run riot and win the first two (or three) sets? Will the match be a tight one with all possible sets played?
Player (1 or 2) to Win a Set
In tennis, an opponent (Player 1) can defeat another (Player 2) in straight sets. This means Player 1 has won all the possible sets that can be won in the game.
If you back such player to win a set, you will have won your bet. If you can forecast that the other player (Player 2) won’t win a set, then you will have won your bet too.
1st Set/Match Winner
This is two betting markets in one. And it is pretty straightforward.
To win money from this market, you must do two things. First, you must predict correctly, the player to win the first set. You must then go on to predict accurately, the winner of the game. Both predictions must be spot on to win this kind of bet
1st or 2nd Set Winner
Have you discovered the strength of a certain player? Have you found out that they win more of their first or second or sets? You can use this trend to make some extra cash for yourself. And this is the betting market to look for.
1st Set Correct Score
Here, you’re required to predict the correct score of the first set of the tennis game.
2-Way Or Over/Under 22,5
Another combined tennis betting market. In this one, you’re required to:
- Predict the winner of the game
- Predict the total number of games that will be played (in this case, whether under 22,5 or over 22,5 games)
