Betting tennis is the best way to beat the bookmakers
I am frequently asked: “Why tennis?” The reasons to this are numerous and it’s really bothering to enumerate them over and over again. So I decided to write this article and to enlist the main pros of tennis betting.
Firstly, the random factor in tennis betting is kept to a minimum.
Tennis is a sport where the random factor is minimized. When you place a bet, you have to evaluate the winning chances and personal abilities of 2 players, not 22 as it is in football, for example. You must admit that it's easier to analyze the physical condition, mental state, head-to-head records, strong and weak sides of 2 opponents. Also in tennis we don’t have to consider the referees mistakes, as most of the major tournaments implement a ball-tracking Hawkeye technology to check umpires’ calls, not to speak of clay courts, where the mark of the ball is clearly shown. Meanwhile in football, which is the most popular sport among punters, a great number of factors that may impact the outcome are stacked against you: referee mistakes, a ball taking funny bounces, misconduct penalties, injuries, etc. By the way, such factor as injuries in tennis is almost neutralized. As in case of the injury, the match is called off and the stakes are returned to the bettors (in case of handicap betting). Unlike football matches that go on even if one of the best players was injured, tennis match can end up only with the victory of one of the competitors. The time needed to reveal the outright winner is not important. In team games, such as football, hockey, basketball, as we know, the time of the game is limited and consequently the score can be frozen, which is difficult to predict in advance Now, I suppose, you see the difference between tennis betting and betting any other sport: betting on tennis can really be profitable.
Factors which are not taken into account when calculating the odds.
It’s not a secret, that cash flows, not real winning chances of tennis players impact the quoted odds. So you can beat the bookies by searching the internet and considering the relevant information. Some tennis tournaments take place all over the world and the bookies do not take into account such factors as long travels, jetlags and acclimatization of the players who at times have to play in the USA today, and tomorrow will find themselves flying to Europe. Such travels inevitably influence the quality of tennis. Some of the bookies make a mistake by relying more on the current ranking position of the player, rather than on his current form. Some odds don’t consider the change of the court surface; meanwhile it is a common thing in tennis: from hard courts (slow and fast) to clay courts (also slow and fast) or grass ones. So you see, so the bookies fail to take into account some of the components. And that is a chance for us to excel them. Ultimately, as we’ve already stated in our article on Statistics in Tennis Betting, tennis styles of different players are very often neglected too. But as we want to be one step ahead we should keep it in mind that hitters will perform better on fast courts while slow courts will be more convenient for defensive players. Often times the bookies miss this fact thus quoting unrealistic odds especially when playing with handicaps. Another important aspect of the tennis match analysis is player’s motivation. In football it's impossible to watch the game where one team strives for nothing, while the other one needs everything (it may happen only at the end of the season). Whilst in tennis it’s not uncommon for the favorites to show a disastrous tennis when participating on minor tournaments. And for some performers the only motivation is to receive a check for the participation. For example, ATP Masters amply reward even those who end up playing in the 1st round. So it’s worthwhile even for the most unfit contenders to appear on court and to get some money for it.
Betting tennis live
Another important benefit of tennis betting is a rapidly changing market of live bets. In other words, it changes after every point, especially after every break point won (returning of the opponent’s serve). And given the average of 3-4 breaks in every match, live betting may be very efficient. Noteworthy, that you have a chance to watch almost all matches: from challengers and ATP major events. Thanks to that, you can not only rely on match statistics, but also get the information straight from the source.
Considering individual characteristics of the players
Going deeper, we’d like to consider the key factor to successful betting: individual characteristics of the players. For instance, the most money-making player for me nowadays is Richard Gasquet. This French male always shows decent tennis at the beginning of the season, but, as a general rule, retreats by its end due to the weak physical form and lack of stamina. Knowing this peculiarity I always bet against him at the end of the season or place a live bet against him shall he get the first set. Or another beneficial scenario with Radek Štěpánek in the lead role. We are big fans of placing bets on the matches with the Czech playing. In the 1st – 2nd round he would show the top 5 level beating any opponent, but then sir Stepanek start floating and his unsteady performance cause fluctuations on the betting market. After any significant loss odds to Stepanek increase, but we know that the rested Czech can show more than it’s expected from him.
Of course, profound knowledge of individual features is based on long experience. Thus, if don’t want to reinvent the wheel, start using our website, and we will share the best of our accumulated gained experience with you, so that you could avoid the mistakes that we have already made. Certainly, you are free to choose your own way. But be prepared to find enough time to watch 5-6 matches a day to make deep analysis of the current physical state of the players, to find out their personal characteristics. Only then you’ll have a chance to become a successful bettor capable of beating any bookie.

IMHO Federer will win like 6:2 6:4 or so.
dotennis14 Mar 19:11
Probably. But Johnson's service is good, so Roger will rarely make more than one break in a set.

You really think that Federer would not totally destroy Johnson?
