If you are interested in tennis betting, it is important to know how to bet on all of the available betting options and the key options to increase profitability. The main option for tennis betting is to bet on the winner of the match. If you bet on an individual player who will win the game, the player must win two or three sets in a tournament (female is always two sets). Tennis is very simple because it is a two-way game. In other words, there are only two outcomes: player A wins or player B wins. All you have to do is select Player A or Player B as the winner and place a bet.
The options available for tennis betting depend on which tennis betting site you use. The list below contains the most common types of bets.
Set winner: The punter predicts the winner of a particular set.
Tournament Winner: In order to receive a dividend, bettors must accurately predict the upcoming tournament winner. These bets are often listed months ago, as the odds change as the event approaches, and this bet option falls into the “futures” category.
Match Winner: Better chooses the winner of the match. Money line style bets are often used and each player is assigned a number plus or minus sign (eg, Serena Williams -320 vs Caroline Wozniacki + 225). The player with the minus sign is the favorite / stronger, the number indicates how much you need to bet to win $ 100. Players with a plus sign are underdogs / weak, and the numbers indicate how much you win if you bet $ 100.
Over / Under Sets: The oddsmaker predicts the total number of sets played in the match. The bettor then predicts whether the actual number of sets will be higher or lower.
The number of games in set: The bettor selects the total number of games in the set from a list of options.
In-play bets: These bets are divided into several forms, but the defining feature is that bets take place during the course of a match.
Point Spread: In tennis, 1.5 sets are subtracted for favorites and 1.5 sets are added to the final set for underdogs. This adjusted score determines the winner. Money lines may be used in conjunction with this bet to determine the pay line amount.
Proposal bets: Betters anticipate specific events and situations during the match. Examples include the number of faults a player has made in a match, the number of tournaments the player has won during the season or the total number of aces in the set.

Surface performance: Some players may be good at clay, but players traditionally struggle on hard courts. Know how each player performs on all courts (turf, hard court, clay).
Don't miss a player's injury/condition: Prolonged injuries can severely affect even the most talented players. Pay close attention to the physical condition of the players.
Play Style: Each player has their own play style. Before the match, check how the player has played against other players with the same level of skill as the opponent. This may allow you to predict in advance how the match will proceed.
Check the weather: Some players play better in bad conditions, such as strong winds. Knowing athletes' trends can help you take advantage of less than ideal weather.
