One of the tips of the trade in betting offers industry is that some sports are simply easier to make a profit on than others. It’s generally thought that tennis is one of the sports that fall into this category as unlike many others, there are just two outcomes available to the punter. Of course, while there might be one less outcome than several other sports, caution still needs to be exercised whenever you contemplate a flutter. While there will never be a specific code to abide to, here is a list of tips that should help you improve your profits if you decide to bet on tennis matches.
Constantly analyze the weather conditions
As you may expect, this is only a variable that will alter in outdoor tennis tournaments but it can have huge significance on the end result. Generally, in windy conditions especially, one side of the court will be much easier to play on than the other. This means that players could have real difficulty in winning any games when they play on that side of the court – even if they are on serve.
This presents a fantastic tennis betting tips opportunity for the punter, if you can find a bookmaker that accepts in-play bets. On practically all occasions, bookies will label the server as the big favorite to win the match and the odds will be ridiculously favourable. In fact, when there is a big underdog, bookmakers will generally provide a massive price for them to break serve.
It’s at this point that you should spring into action. Most of the time, the bookies will not place too much emphasis on weather conditions for in-play specific game bets and this means there is fantastic value to be had. Admittedly, you may lose a few bets, but the odds are so favourable that this is something you can afford to do.
Research how competitors perform on the type of court that is being played on
When people talk about researching how players perform on a specific court type, they will generally look to their form on the various surfaces such as grass, clay and hard court. This is perhaps one of the most obvious tips in tennis betting research, as players are renowned for having a favoured surface and some simply won’t be able to cope on other types.
However, another tip along the same lines relates to the variables around the court. For example, some players will have absolutely no experience of playing in front of big crowds as in the US Open and this means that they could fare poorly if they are allocated one of the big courts in a tournament. Similarly, some players have their “bogey courts” and simple research can lead you to these courts to see where they have struggled in the past.
Keep a close eye on the warm up
The warm up can be a very telling point in the match as you will usually see if a player is carrying an injury. Whether they are acting laboured in their practice or if they are merely bandaged up in certain areas, you may be given a slight indication that they won’t be able to finish the match – or at least have their performance affected by their troubles. It’s at this point you should head straight to the bookmaker to back your suspicions with an investment.
