How do tennis betting payouts work on Sports Bet?

A punter with a credit balance can withdraw their winnings at any time. Once a withdrawal has been requested, SportsBet will determine if the punter is FICA (Financial Intelligence Centre Act) compliant and if so, the funds will be transferred to the punter’s bank account.  It normally takes less than 3 working days for the punter to receive their funds.

What is a betting spread in tennis?

In tennis, punters can bet on either the Game Spread or Set Spread. The game spread is where a punter will bet on whether a favourite will win by a certain number of games or more (the spread) and the underdog can also win on the market even when losing to the favourite by within a predetermined number of games (the spread). In the Set Spread, the betting is on sets rather than games but the market type is the same.

How do you read tennis odds on Sports Bet?

Punters must know how to read soccer betting odds before making any bet. Tennis odds show how much can be won from a successful bet. They also show how likely an event is to happen. SportsBet displays all its odds in decimal format.

Is it better to bet over or under?

In Tennis a punter can bet on Over/Under Games or Sets.  In the early stages of a tournament, there are usually fewer games and sets played as the matches are between mostly mismatched players and in the closing stages of the tournament as the skill levels become matched then games tend to be longer and more sets are also played.  A punter will need to analyse the skill levels of the players to know how best to play the Over/Under market.

What is the most profitable online tennis betting strategy?

Betting on tennis online can prove to be lucrative if a punter implements a betting strategy based on scientific observation, calculation and being a disciplined punter.  There are so many tournaments played during the year that a punter is advised to specialise on either specific tournaments or specific markets.

Live Betting on Tennis

Tennis offers one of the most popular live betting markets in the world. The betting odds changes with every point making for a fast-paced exciting betting experience. Set betting, Correct Score, Over/Under are some of the markets which are available in Live-Inplay.  With swings in odds after every point, there is potential to win big in each match while betting live.

Outright Tournament Winner

Before a tournament begins, the odds are always higher and a punter needs to take into consideration factors affecting the backing of a Tournament Winner.  A punter needs to study the Tournament draw and can tell how much difficulty a player will face reaching the later stages.  This strategy also helps in betting on futures (Player To Reach Semi-Final, Quarter Final, Final etc) and brings great value when a less talented player faces weak opposition.

Tournament Each Way Betting

To minimize losses when betting on the Tournament Winner, a punter can lay a Tournament Each Way bet.  This is a bet where the same amount of stake is put on a player to win the Tournament and on a player to play in the final.  Essentially the punter is backing the player to Win the Tournament and if not, then to at least reach the final.  If the player wins the Tournament, then the punter wins both wagers.
