There are several betting strategies you can employ in tennis starting with placing accumulators on short-priced favourites in Grand Slams.
During the first few rounds of the tournament the odds on the top seeded players to win matches are stingy, so look to combine a few selections.
Picking five or six players to win their respective matches increases the potential returns without significantly increasing the risk.
Another strategy we love to employ involves exploiting the in-play markets during five-set tennis matches.
If you have a scenario where a top player falls 2-1 behind against a much lower ranked player, this is the ideal time to strike.
The top player’s odds will be significantly greater than would normally be the case and the rankings still point to them recovering to win the match.
World rankings, current form, fitness and H2H record are amongst the most important factors to consider when betting on tennis.
It is also imperative to consider a player’s record on a particular surface – for instance, some players shine on clay but cannot perform on grass.
Motivation is another factor – some players may not be as motivated in smaller tournaments, but raise their game when the Grand Slams come around.
What to Avoid
While we have recommended combining selections in an accumulator to boost your potential returns, don’t be too greedy.
It might seem tempting to think you can land a 15-selection accumulator, but the chances of it happening are pretty slim.
