Tennis Betting: What to know

Tennis betting has emerged as one of the biggest sports betting markets worldwide. There are many reasons for this, including an increased popularity of the sport, increased money and exposure afforded to the grand slam events and an era where 3 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 BettingPro, our dedicated tennis team of journalists and 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, bookmakers and much more every 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. 

Tennis Betting Offers & Promotions

Due to the popularity of tennis betting and the fierce competition between online sports bookmakers, punters can take advantage of some great bet offers – especially new customer bonuses. Most of the best betting promotions bespoke to tennis betting are centred around the big events: the four grand slams and the season-ending ATP Finals & WTA Finals so make sure to keep an eye on the betting offers page during these events to ensure you make the most out of your tennis betting selections. We regularly update our betting offers page with the latest sportsbook offers for new customers. 

Tennis In-Play Betting & Live Streaming 

If there was a sport made for in-play betting, it’s tennis. Tennis betting allows punters to take advantage of the stop-start nature of the game to open up a variety of specific betting markets that make the sport both unique and attractive for sports betting. Another benefit of in-play tennis betting is that punters can wager on outcomes and accumulate winnings extremely quickly, especially when betting on specific points as bets can be settled in under a minute! The number of in-play betting options available to punters has contributed to tennis betting becoming one of the most prominent sports betting markets in the planet and with tournaments available to bet on throughout the whole year, punters are hard-pressed to find many days they can’t place a stake in-play on a tennis match.

Tennis live streaming has also improved the in-play betting experience for punters, who can now immerse themselves in the action better than ever thanks to some of the larger online betting sites who offer a wide variety of tennis betting live streams across the ATP World Tour, WTA Tour, the ATP challenger tour and more. 

Tennis Betting Tips

Unlike some online tennis tipsters, our tennis betting tips and predictions are not hidden behind a pay-wall. Our tips have always been available to our readers for no charge, so if you are planning on placing a bet on an upcoming game, why not seek out betting advice without paying a fee? After all, you could pay another online tipster and end up spending money getting a losing tip that results in you losing more money! While we obviously cannot promise a winning bet every time, all of our tennis betting tips are shared in good faith so you can bet in confidence with us.

Due to the rising popularity of tennis betting, especially live in-play tennis betting, most bookmakers provide great coverage of the betting market.
