How to Bet on Tennis and Odds Explained
Tennis is one of the most popular sports to bet on, with fans able to choose from varying odds and different betting styles to back their favourite players in high-profile tournaments.
You can select the representation of odds that makes sense to you, be it decimal, fractional, or American, and some of the tennis betting options available on Stake.com include:
Moneyline (Head to Head): The easiest way to bet on tennis is a straight-up moneyline bet (often referred to as a head-to-head bet in tennis). Your job is to pick the winner of a match, with the odds based on how likely one player is to defeat another. Read our moneyline betting guide to learn more.
Outright: This is another easy type of bet, similar to a moneyline, however in a futures, or outright bet, you bet on the individual tennis player to win the entire tournament. Check out our outright betting guide for more information.
Correct score: In tennis, you can bet on the correct score of a match. So, if you think Nadal will defeat Djokovic two sets to nil in an upcoming ATP event, you can bet on 2-0 being the correct score for the encounter.
Over/Under (Total games): Another popular tennis bet is to wager on how many games you think will be played in a match. For instance, if Sakkari and Gauff are head-to-head in a 3-set match, the totals line might be set at 22.5 games. Your job is to bet whether more or fewer games than the totals line will be played, more commonly referred to as the over/under, respectively.
Handicap: Known as the point spread in other sports, a handicap bet is a great way of levelling things up on your betting slip. The favourite is given a deficit to overcome, while the underdog gets a headstart. A headstart of 3.5 games might be given to the underdog, meaning that the favourite you’re betting on would need to win the set by at least 4 games to cover the spread and win your bet.
Double result (1st set/match): It’s also possible to place a double bet on a tennis match, which sees you back the same player to win the first set and then the match outright. This is an effective way of building value into your betting slip.
X set winner (pick the winner of specific sets): How many times have you seen a game of tennis go back and forth on the court? A fun bet is to wager which player you think will win each respective set in a match instead of merely picking an outright winner.
X set total games (Over/Under): Another popular set bet in tennis is predicting how many games will be played in the set. Fancy a whitewash of 6-0 to the defending champion? Or do you think it will be a tight 6-4 first set? The line might be set at 8.5, and your job is to predict whether more or fewer games will be played in the set.
1st set correct score: The first set in a tennis match is often unpredictable, but it provides a great opportunity to predict the correct score between two players. Be it 6-2 or 5-7, you can wager the expected outcome of the first set to add value to your tennis betting slip.
Exact sets: Will the matchup go the distance, or will one player wrap things up without reply? Bet on the exact sets of a particular tennis match as another way of enhancing your tournament betting slip.
