Bookmaker Parimatch skachat offers an extensive line of tennis. The painting includes a huge number of markets, the decoding of which requires explanation. Before placing bets, you need to have an idea of what they mean. Next, we will learn the most common types of tennis betting.
The regulations of tennis competitions do not provide for the possibility of a draw. The player needs to decide which participant in the duel will be the winner. Let’s consider this type of betting on the example of the match between Stanislas Wawrinka and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez (see the screenshot below). The coefficient for the victory of the first athlete is 1.7, while the quotes for his opponent are 2.29.
Total in tennis is often expressed in games and sets. The meaning of the bet is to predict the number of games or sets played in a particular match. Moreover, the total can be general (for both players) and individual (a bet on the performance of a certain tennis player).
Take a look at the image above. Nadal is the clear favorite of the match (cf. 1.02). Bookmakers are convinced that Rafael will cope with his opponent in three sets: the odds for this outcome are only 1.25. Most bookmakers offer a market under 3.5, which is similar to the bet described above. That is, the bet will play if the match ends with a score of 3:0 in favor of Nadal (3<3.5).
The market called “Total Games in a Match” offers to bet on the total number of draws. Games are a component of sets: a tennis player who has reached the mark of 6 games won is declared the winner of the set (in some cases, 7 games must be taken).
Even if the meeting ends with a score of 3:0, at least 18 games will be played (6:0, 6:0, 6:0). In the example above, the user needs to decide how many games will be played between tennis players. If this number exceeds 27.5 – bet on the total more, if not – on the TM.
There is another betting option – “Total of the player’s games won”. Everything is obvious here: you bet on the total amount of games played by a tennis player. This type of bet is also called “Individual Total”. For example, if Nadal plays 18 games, the bet on TM will win (odds 1.80). In the event that the opponent imposes a struggle on Rafael and he plays 19 or more games, the choice of “TB 18.5” will be the winning one.
In most tennis matches, the game is played to win in two sets, so bettors are offered to choose the exact outcome of the match – 2:0, 0:2, 2:1 or 1:2.
If two equal opponents meet in the game, the quotes for this market will be quite large. In a pair of favorite-underdog, the hands do not look so attractive.
Handicap is an individual parameter that gives virtual superiority to athletes before the start of the match. By analogy with the total, there are two types of handicap – by sets or by games. Let’s consider each of them in turn.
Handicap for draws. Venus Williams is the favorite of the meeting: the odds for her victory are 1.4. A negative handicap is always given to stronger tennis players. A handicap of -4 means that Venus will start the match with a score of -4:0 in games. In order for the bet to play, Williams must be ahead of her opponent by at least four games at the end of the fight. With positive odds, everything is exactly the opposite: by choosing (+)4 for Jiang Wang, the girl starts with a numerical advantage of four games. With handicaps for sets, everything happens the same way.
Express is not some kind of market or betting type. So it is customary to call the type of bet that combines the outcomes of several events at once. Their quotes are multiplied, which in total gives a fairly large coefficient. As an example, we selected three matches of the ATP Roland Garros tournament with kf. 1.58, 1.59 and 1.78.
Let’s say our bet is $10. If we bet on these outcomes separately, we get the following:
No. 1. $10 * 1.58 = $15.8;
No. 2. $10 * 1.59 = $15.9;
No. 3. $10 * 1.78 = $17.8.
Total income ($49.5) – investment ($30) = $19.5 net income. However, if we place a $10 bet on an accumulator with odds of 4.47, the win will bring us a profit of $34.7.
No matter how profitable accumulators seem, they have one significant drawback: in case of losing one match, the entire bet is considered canceled.
Let’s say that the participant of the second meeting Juan Martin Del Potro will not be able to defeat his opponent. In this case, we lose ten dollars, regardless of the results of the remaining battles.
