Players can access lots of betting odds and Tennis lines at Guts sportsbook. Learning about these markets before you try betting on Tennis matches is essential. Below are a few popular options and how they work:
This is the same thing as a Moneyline or outright winner bet. However, you choose only the winner of a particular game, not the whole Tennis tournament. This sport has no draws, so you must back one of the players. For the matches, the favourite has lower odds than the underdog, but this does not automatically translate to having the upper hand in winning. A match bet is the simplest betting option for a Tennis event.
Set betting is another excellent option allowing players to predict the match winner and results of each set in a game. Since a player bets on two outcomes, the Tennis odds are enhanced for this market. For instance, you can place the following set bets for a match between Federer and Nadal:
The Guts sportsbook offers a line for any two of the best three possible outcomes in a three-set match.
This is a market that involves betting on the exact score of a set and the expected winner. It entails two outcomes, so players enjoy higher odds with this option. At Guts, you will find the scorecast markets with a list of betting options per set. Also, you can bet on more than one set at a time. Here are examples of a scorecast bet:
Players can also access over/under bets on Tennis matches. This option entails betting on how many sets will be played in a game. So, instead of betting on the winner, you focus on the duration of the match. If you are sure the Tennis game will end in two straight sets, you bet for under 2.5. But if you feel it will last longer than this, opt for the over market. Furthermore, both markets have skewed odds.
