Tennis betting explained
Tennis betting has emerged as one of the biggest sports betting markets in the UK and Europe. There are many reasons for this, including an increased popularity of the sport, increased money and exposure afforded to the Grand Slams and an era where three of the best players to ever play the game are currently active.
However, there is no doubt that the increasingly popular market of tennis betting has grown due to the arrival of online sports gambling and with it, the opportunity to bet in-play. At Live Tennis, our dedicated tennis team of experts will be analysing all of the vital statistics, news and form guides to update you with the best tennis betting tips & predictions, betting offers, match previews and much more each day.
Here are some of the most popular betting types of bet in the tennis betting market:
- To win: quite simply selecting the outright winner of a match.
- Set score: here you can be more experimental, betting on the score of the set is popular, especially with tennis in-play betting when you can see a player is either starting to ascend or decline in a match.
- Total games in a set: Here punters can predict how many games there will be in a set. This is a great betting selection for betting in-play as you can find more value than a ‘to win’ bet whilst the bet isn’t as risky or uncertain as predicting the exact set score.
- Next break of serve: Is a player looking shaky on serve? Most bookmakers allow punters to bet on which player will break their opponents serve next.
