How to Bet on Tennis
Tennis is an individual game unlike sports like football which are team sports. As such, tennis betting works a bit differently. Luckily it’s pretty easy to bet on tennis and we will give you the basics on how to bet on tennis.
Understanding Tennis Odds – Tennis odds for most PA sportsbooks are straightforward with many bets using a moneyline format. For positive moneyline bets, the odds tell you how much you can win for a bet of $100. For negative moneyline bets, the odds tell you how much you must bet to win $100.
Below are some of the most common bets you’ll run across for tennis betting.
Match Betting – This is an easy bet where you’re picking which player will win a match.
Set Betting – For this bet, you can bet on the exact score of a set. This is a tough bet to win as you must hit the exact score to pay out.
Set Winners – For this bet, you can bet on which player win individual sets. This allows you to bet multiple times during a single match.
Total Games – You can bet on how many games it will take for a player to win a match. This one can be tough to win, especially if you have two evenly matched players competing.
Prop Betting – Similar to prop bets in other sports, you can bet on tennis prop bets of various types. You can bet on things such as the number of double faults in a match, if someone will be forced to retire early, or who will win the overall tournament.
