Tennis betting guide
The great thing about betting on tennis is not only the number of tournaments and events but also the different ways it is played. Men and women are separate in singles however they are mixed when it comes to doubles opening up a whole host of betting opportunities.
Tennis takes place all over the world and the tournaments are won by those individuals in form and play with the most skill.The Olympic and Paralympic games also feature tennis so the tournaments come thick and fast.
Of course there are the household names but often injuries and outsiders play a huge part in these events. Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer and Andy Murray lead the way in the men’s game whilst Serena Williams, Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep are at the for front of the womens game.

Tennis betting markets
As with most popular sports, the bookies have a whole host of different ways to place bets on tennis. Obviously you can bet on tournament outright winners but you can also bet on winners of individual sets, tie breaks to how far players can get in a tournament and what the scores will be. The lists of options are endless as are the potential returns on your bets.
With some bookmakers its well worth keeping an eye on their tennis markets. Acca insurance is now offered by some. This allows you to place an accumulator bet and if one of your bet loses by just one leg you’ll get your stake back – this will be credited as a one off free bet.
You can also enjoy in-play betting with tennis. Meaning you can place bets when the matches are in play. There are often enhanced odds and priced boosts available, which means you can often find great value with certain bookies and the bets you want to place.
