Tennis Betting Markets

Tennis is a huge global betting phenomenon with major tournaments almost every week of the year on the ATP World Tour, WTA Tour, The Fed Cup and The Davis Cup. Most major Tennis betting sites offer over 35 betting markets on a single game. But what do all these betting markets mean?

Here’s a simple explanation of the most popular tennis betting markets:

To Win Match / Match Odds – Which player will win the tennis match. In tennis you always have a winner… and a loser; there is no draw.

Set Betting – How many sets a player will win. As a player has to win by three sets there are 6 options available: 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2 to each player. In women’s tennis there are four options: 2-0 or 2-1 to each player.

Handicap / Games Won / Sets Won – The underdog player will be given a number of games or sets. For example a favourite would be -2.5 Sets and the underdog +2.5 meaning that you win backing the favourite and they win 3-0.

Outright Betting / Tournament Winner – Who’s going to win the tournament. This is offered on Men’s Outright Betting and Ladies Outright Betting. You can back a player each way and if they make the final then you get paid ½ odds, plus if they win you get the win odds.
