Tennis Daily Tips and Previews
What events we cover throughout the year
We are covering the battles for Grand Slam glory at the four biggest events of the year: the Australian Open, the French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. However, it’s more than just those four major tournaments as we are covering the entire ATP World Tour and WTA Tour events. Usually, there isn’t much value in the first rounds of the major tournaments, so we are focusing our attention on the smaller events where we are able to find better value in terms of betting.
On the men’s side, the ‘Big Four’ (Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray) have dominated the tennis’ world over the past decade, but it’s exciting to see the new guard of exciting young players, such as Alexander Zverev, Grigor Dimitrov, David Goffin, Dominic Thiem or Jack Sock.
On the women’s side, things have changed over the past few years following Maria Sharapova’s suspension, Petra Kvitova’s injury and Serena Williams’ pregnancy. The WTA top five is now composed by Simona Halep, Garbine Muguruza, Caroline Wozniacki, Karolina Pliskova and Venus Williams.
How to bet on tennis - Key factors to consider
First of all, tennis is a fast-paced sport which is played on different surfaces such as hard, grass and clay courts. There are different types of players and each of them is preferring a different surface. For example, there are big-servers, defensive players, baseline players etc. Furthermore, tennis players can be left-handed or right-handed and it’s important to take into consideration when placing a bet on a tennis game. Grass is the fastest surface, while clay is the lowest with the hardcourts being considered the middle ground. Another factor could be injuries. Tennis players like to strap up and carry on even though they know they may have a slight problem. If this is the case, they are less likely to be at their best and could see them struggle in the game.

Most popular betting markets in tennis
On this page, we will frequently use the most popular forms of tennis betting where we can find the best value available on a specific day.
Betting on Tennis - Matches
This is the most popular form of tennis betting and unlike football, the draw is not an option. This means that a player either will win or lose the game. Since there is no draw option available in tennis, the odds on favourites are often very low. Therefore, must of the punters chose to accumulate bets in an attempt to find a better value.
Betting on Tennis - Set Betting
This betting option is equivalent to betting on the final score in football, but the difference is that in tennis you bet on the score in sets. This can be a splendid way to find value, as for example when you see that a player which is a short-priced favourites, you can place a bet on him to win 2-0 or 3-0. You can also bet on a player to win the first set, which is the equivalent for a team to win the first half in tennis.
Betting on Tennis - Asian Handicap
An Asian Handicap in tennis betting is when a player is given a number of games or sets as an advantage over their opponent. The bookmakers sets the Handicap line and bettors have the option to bet whether a player will win with a + Handicap advantage or whether a player will make up their - Handicap disadvantage and still win. This is another great betting option where you can find value to bet on the favourite player.
Betting on tennis - Overs/Unders
This is a great way of betting in tennis if you find hard to determine which player will win the match. The bookmakers sets the Overs/Unders line in terms of both games and sets. For example, instead of betting on a short-priced favourite to win at very thin odds, you can bet on the match to finish in quick time for better value.
