Tennis Betting

     Tennis betting is very popular in Great Britain, where it ranks second only to soccer betting as far as popularity and revenue generated. This European influence and popularity is why online sportsbooks offer tennis betting regularly compared to Las Vegas, which basically sticks with the major events. Placing a bet on tennis involves money lines instead of point-spreads.

 
 

An interesting phenomenon in tennis betting is that just a few select players dominate the gambling odds as you bet on tennis. The men's side of the court has Roger Federer a heavy tennis betting favorite in every tournament he enters while the women have a top three or four that are heavy tennis betting favorites.

What this means for tennis betting fans is that the best way for a gambler to profit at tennis betting is to bet on matchups, in which the sportsbook will post money line odds on the two tennis players going against each other in a match. This is strictly a money line bet similar to what you see in baseball or hockey.

Matchups will be put up as the tournament progresses with the quarterfinals, semifinals and the final getting the most attention. Betting a player to win an event is much more difficult because of the low prices and the domination by just a few players.

Surface is the key to handicapping tennis at sportsbooks and they vary from hard courts, to grass, to clay and the different individual tennis players each play and react differently depending on what surface they are on. Tracking how player's produce on the different surfaces is a must in tennis betting.

Injuries and fatigue can be every bit as important of factors in tennis betting as they are in betting American football and should be monitored closely when you bet on tennis. Tennis betting is an interesting option for gamblers around the world. It provides some good wagering opportunities during the year if you look to bet on tennis.

Andy Murray the new Wimbledon Tennis Betting Favorite

Now that Sam Querrey did the unthinkable and eliminated former odds-on tennis betting favorite Novak Djokovic in the third round of the 2016 Wimbledon Championships, Scottish 
Andy Murray Wimbledon betting favoriteAndy Murray has become the new favorite of people who bet on tennis to win the tournament. One would think that this turn of events would make Querrey himself a favorite, but that is not quite how things work. “The bookies don't always get it right,” Murray said. “They've made a few mistakes over the last few weeks across a number of different things.” Well, at least we don’t tell you how to play tennis, Andy. The World No. 2 has had eight wins and no losses since reconvening with Ivan Lendl and has yet to drop a set at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club at Church Road, Wimbledon, London, England.

Novak Djokovic vs. Adrian Mannarino Tennis Betting Odds

Novak Djokovic vs. Adrian Mannarino  OddsWhen it comes to tennis betting odds, never are you as big an underdog as when facing the number 1 tennis player in the world, Novak Djokovic. And that’s exactly the position in which French Adrian Mannarino (ranked 55th in the world) will find himself on June 29th when squares off against the Serb in the second round of the 2016 Wimbledon Championships. Here are the odds for people who bet on tennis:

Two sides of Wimbledon: Novak Djokovic, Serena Williams

Wimbledon 2016 Betting PreviewTennis betting fans would not do wrong to wager on Number 1 in the world Novak Djokovic – a man who himself, it seems, can do no wrong. The Serb is heading into the 2016 Wimbledon Championships at the top of his game. After finally winning the French Open – defeating Andy Murray 3–6, 6–1, 6–2, 6–4 – Djokovic scored a non-calendar year career Grand Slam and became the third player to hold all four major titles at the same time – as well as the first since Rod Laver in 1969 – and the first to accomplish this feat in hardcourt, clay, and grass. And grass is what people who bet on tennis would have to be on tennis not to consider defending champion Djokovic the odds-on favorite to win Wimbledon for the third consecutive time.

Lady Luck frowns on Novak Djokovic in the French Open

Novak Djokovic in the French OpenThe French Open holds a special place in the hearts of fans who bet on tennis. Time and the weather can play such a big part as to even change tennis betting odds. Number 1 in the world Novak Djokovic found that out on Monday when it literally rained on his parade. For the first eight days of Roland Garros, Djokovic looked like the luckiest guy in tennis. Andy Murray – on the other side of the draw – arrived in Paris off a clay-court win over the Serb in Rome that left some doubting as to whom exactly should be favored. As it turns out, though, Murray got off to two nerve-wracking, five-set matches he barely managed to scrape by won and expressed concerns about needing to save energy if he had any chance to win.

Novak Djokovic 'not obsessed with winning French Open'

Novak Djokovic favorite to win Roland GarrosThe Serb is usually the man to bet on tennis, with the only possible exception being the French Open. He insists that he is not obsessed with winning Roland Garros, and it’s just as well because he has lost all three finals he has played in Paris, including the last two years. Djokovic is going into his 12th attempt to win, and he would set a record for the most attempts taken to win the title if he finally pulls it off. It would surpass the likes of Roger Federer and Andre Agassi, who both won the event at the 11th try. Goran Ivanisevic holds the Open era Grand Slam record of requiring 14 attempts before winning Wimbledon in 2001.
