Some of the most popular tennis betting lines in 2015 are the lines for who will win a certain number of Grand Slam titles. These bets are typically organized before and after individual Grand Slam events and are often based on the rankings for the top tennis players in the world. These are often reviewed based on points like how well certain players have competed and what individual players could do in the future.
Tennis betting options are available for both men's and women's tournaments. You can bet tennis throughout the year as various tournaments have tennis betting odds each month. Tennis betting for many people involves the Grand Slam events. The four Grand Slam events are Wimbledon, the U.S. Open, the French Open and the Australian Open. Tennis betting options for these four tournaments are the most popular, especially Wimbledon and the U.S. Open.
Tennis betting is still way down the list of priorities at a sportsbook but you will see options listed on the Grand Slam tournaments and many sportsbooks also offer tennis betting options on other tournaments each month. The first Grand Slam event is the Australian Open in January. The French Open takes place in late May.
Wimbledon is played in late June and the U.S. Open is the final Grand Slam event in late August. These are the four tournaments that get the most action from gamblers around the world. Tennis betting has two basic choices for gamblers. You can bet tennis in regards to a player winning a tournament or you can bet tennis matchups.
The first of those tennis betting choices is like a futures bet. It is where you are wagering on a player to win an event before it begins. It is similar to wagering on a player to win a golf tournament or a driver to win a race. The odds will range anywhere from odds-on to 100-1 or more. The other basic tennis betting choice is the matchup.
This is where you bet one player against another in a matchup. These are usually posted on the quarterfinals, semifinals, and final of a tennis tournament. Usually you won't see the early round matchups since the popular players like Roger Federer would be heavy favorites. A tennis betting matchup is a money line wager similar to what you see in baseball or hockey.
You just need the player you wager on to beat the other player in order to win. You might be laying -150 or -200 to win $100 or the 15/10 or 20/10 equivalent. You can also choose to take the underdog in a tennis betting matchup as well. It can be exciting to bet tennis and it can be profitable if you are able to choose the winner of a tournament or pick profitable matchups.
