Tennis betting has grown exponentially in the past few years, and the sheer market volume has increased dramatically thanks to the introduction of betting exchanges like Betfair. With so many tennis matches kicking off all over the world, you can generally always track down a few tennis fixtures.
Grand slam tennis betting is especially intense and this is when you’ll find the biggest selection of markets. Live betting volumes on these events are increasing all the time and since tennis is a sport with supremely global appeal, you’ll always be looking at very solid prices.
Top players like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal can be tough to wager on in anything but a tournament final as they are almost always listed at tremendously short prices to win. This makes upset betting against high-profile opponents a very lucrative opportunity.
Tennis accumulators are always popular and, with so many matches happening every day, you can put together some very impressive parlay tickets. You’ll want a nice mix of upsets and favourites on your accumulators in order to ensure a quality payout.
Since the odds on outright favourites to win can sometimes be a bit short, set betting is usually the preferred way to add additional value to matches that look extremely one-sided. Rafael Nadal to win might be priced at 1/20 to win outright but you can probably secure a 2/5 price on a straight sets victory.
