Betting on tennis remains one of the most popular betting selections. The beautiful sport of tennis continues the supremacy race behind football and it is fair to say that both betting selections would sometimes go neck-and-neck depending on the time of the season.
And with summer approaching bearing gifts for all tennis aficionados, we would like to take a closer look at the aspect of betting on tennis, systems and strategies intended to help you become a successful tennis punter.
Money Management & Odds Margin
As with any other sport, money management remains the absolute priority for all tennis-savvy punters. Tennis is a unique betting kind where favourites are offered at particularly low odds and pursuing safe bets on low-priced top seeders will require investing significant amounts of money on betting odds in the region of 1.24, 1.25, 1.30 etc. which does not pay off in the long run.
The problem with matches where favourites can be found at 1.14 and underdogs at 5.30 is that the margin between two bets remains large enough to help you decide when it’s time to steer away from such bets.
Lower odds provide better chance of winning but tennis is a risky sport and you need to have a sound money management plan in order not to get trapped into spending more than you can take on the premise that your bet is sure to go through. Such a betting model will never yield long-term results and you will be better off looking for an alternative method in order to choose you betting selections.
Choose Your Picks Wisely
One of the best tennis-related arguments when it comes to betting on this sport rather than on football is that it eliminates the third variable as the match can’s end undecided. One of the two – or two of four if you bet on double matches – players need to win which narrows down your outright selection to two choices, each of which will be given 50% chance to go through.
Your job is to find a betting value and push your chances of winning higher up by knowing all the relevant facts which offer argument support to your selection. This is why it is extremely important to always be on top of your game and to understand the sport you are betting on, to learn tennis season schedule, possible congestion and potential surprises in unseeded players.
Top players will adjust their season schedule with great respect towards the biggest tournaments of the season which can provide you with a betting upper hand. In order to calibrate their season properly, big guns could appear at upcoming low-ATP point Master series tours which fall right before a 1000 series or a Grand Slam. A psychological aspect plays a big part here as favourites can often be lacking motivation or focus and composure, since their minds will already be at Wimbledon or Roland Garros.
Here lies your chance with unseeded sharks and potential surprises which will regularly appear during the early stages of any competition.
