Offshore Bookmaker Roamin' In the French Open Gloamin’

2017 French Open Betting FavoritesMany an offshore bookmaker might wonder why the French Open tennis tournament is named after an aviator, but there is no wondering who the odds-on favorite to win the second Grand Slam of the 2017 season is. Here's a clue, though; the Roland Garros is the premier clay court tennis championship in the world, and this tennis player is known as the King of Clay.

Aussie Open win boosts Federer’s Tennis Betting Odds

Australian Open Betting OddsWorld No. 10 Roger Federer’s tennis betting odds entering 2017 were not looking very good. The 35 year old missed the latter half of 2016 – including the Summer Olympics as well as the French Open, ending his record of 65 consecutive Grand Slam appearances – with a knee injury. Furthermore, the 2016 season marked the first time that Federer dropped out of the ATP Top 10 since 2002, and the first time since 2000 that the Swiss did not win a title. That’s all water under the fridge, though; if the start of 2017 is anything to go by, Federer’s offshore online gambling stock is bound to go through the roof.

Is fifth time the charm for Argentina Davis Cup team?

Argentina Davis Cup teamAs tennis betting fans might know, Argentina is the country that has made it to the Davis Cup Finals the most times (on four occasions in 1981, 2006, 2008 and 201) without actually winning it, but that may change later this month in Croatia when the Argentina Davis Cup team faces the home team. Argentina captain Daniel Orsanic has assembled the team will attempt one more time to bring the gold home. Orsanic appears to be a firm believer of the “don’t fix it if it ain’t broke” school of thought, summoning the same team that defeated Great Britain in the semis, and which comprises Juan Martin Del Potro, Federico Delbonis, Guido Pella and Leonardo Mayer. Unfortunately, these four men do not combine like a Zord to form a mega-tennis player.

New No. 1 Andy Murray: “Made it, Ma! Top of the world!”

New No. 1 Andy MurrayPeople who enjoy tennis – regardless of whether they bet on tennis or not – must be pleased by the news that Scottish player Andy Murray has ousted Serb Novak Djokovic from the top spot of the ATP rankings. Nothing against Djokovic, but the man had been up there since July 2014. It was high time that he quit bogarting that spot. Murray is the first British man to reach world No. 1 since the rankings were introduced in 1973, which he accomplished by defeating John Isner in the finals of the 2016 Paris Masters after Djokovic was eliminated by Marin Cilic.
