Welcome to our Tennis Betting Tips hub page, where we’ll tell you all you need to know about how to place a wager on one of the world’s most popular sports here at LeoVegas. There are a variety of competitions you can choose to bet on, with a host of recognisable names, and there are some brilliantly innovative markets that we provide so you can place the exact bet you’d like to.
While there are plenty of Tennis matches at varying levels happening across the globe all year round, at LeoVegas we pay particular attention to the biggest Tennis tournaments of the calendar. From the Australian Open in January, to the ATP and WTA Finals events in November, players can place a bet on every single tournament along the way. There’s always a great deal of excitement in the UK ahead of Wimbledon in the summer, while on the other side of the Atlantic the US Open hype reaches a crescendo at the start of September.
From an online betting perspective, there is a fantastic range of markets on which you can place a wager, and each of those markets can be explored in further detail no matter which device you are using. Mobile and App users can explore our markets using the Search bar, while players on Desktop can filter through their options by selecting the ‘Browse Sports’ tab. So whether you believe Roger Federer can improve upon his current legacy, or you have a feeling Sir Andy Murray isn’t quite done yet, you can back your hunch at LeoVegas.
Given that a single Tennis match is made up of smaller increments of games and sets, there are a wide variety of markets that you can place a wager on. Betting odds are provided for traditional markets such as Winner, which applies to individual matches, and Outright Winner, which applies to tournaments as a whole. Within matches, you can also place a bet on the total number of games (which must be at least 18 in the men’s game for a Grand Slam, or 12 in the women’s) and the total number of sets.
Exploring the markets further, you can also place a wager on handicap betting, which can figuratively level the playing field, and is a popular system in a variety of other sports betting markets such as Basketball and Football. Bettors can give an advantage to certain players by giving them a head start in games or in sets. A final area to place a wager on would be on the number of tie-breaks you believe there will be across an entire match.
Over/Under Sets: This market allows bettors to predict how many sets they think will occur across a single match. The Over bet is best reserved for matches in which you expect there to not be much separating the two players, whereas the Under bet is used if you expect one player to dominate the match and win it quickly.
Over/Under Games: You can also break down the sets into their individual games as well. For the men’s game, the minimum number of sets is three, so the minimum number of games must be 18 (e.g: 6-0, 6-0, 6-0). For the women’s game, the minimum number of sets is two, so the minimum number of games is 12 (e.g: 6-0, 6-0).
Number of Tie-Breaks: Bettors can bet on the number of times a set will finish level at 6-6, and enforce a tie-break. The tie-break sees the first player reach 7 points awarded the win for the set. The tie-break result is unimportant with this bet, it’s purely a market on the number of tie-breaks you think there will be.
Set Betting: This market allows bettors to make a score prediction for each individual set. This is similar to scoreline bets in other sports.
Outright Winner Each-Way: For an entire tournament, bettors may have a predicted overall winner in mind. The Outright Winner market allows you to select who you think will win that tournament, with Each-Way options in place that scale down the potential returns depending on where the selected player finishes (e.g: lost in the final, eliminated in the semi-final, etc.)
