Tennis Betting at Bet365 is just amazing!

Tennis is one of the major sports and is played in all corners of the globe during the whole year. It’s up to us to enjoy this great sport and if lucky, catch a few bucks along the way. That’s where online bookies come to play.

Online betting has been around for the last 15 years and is still rapidly emerging as there are new bookies arising almost every day.

The goal of this article is to determine which bookies have the best offers when it comes to tennis.

There isn’t a correct answer here, most of them have their pros and cons but I’ll try to narrow it down to a few.

Best prices

If you’re looking for the best prices Pinnacle Sports is the first bookie that comes to mind. If you simply look at their web page, you can see that they have the lowest juice (profit margin). This is particularly important in tennis as you can only have two outcomes, and while betting you are seeking for a bookie that will give you the best return on your money. 

Widest offer

When you are searching for challenger tournaments, spread betting, specials or prop bets for certain matches there are a few bookies that stand out. Bet365 is one of the bookies I prefer. They have the widest offer around when it comes to tennis betting, covering almost all the tournaments around the world. Most of the challengers are available in live play also which is very rare as most online bookies focus primarily on bigger tennis events. As far as ATP and WTA tournament are considered they have offers on spreads, set betting, lines, etc. as well as occasional specials such as tie breaks, first set scores and similar.

William Hill Review, Stan James and Unibet are also bookies I would recommend with similar prices and offers as Bet365 but with added props through the year in terms of Grand Slams and Davis Cup specials. 

Exchange bookies

Betfair is a type of exchange bookie and is particularly useful in tennis betting . It’s based on making bets against other users rather than against a bookie and uses two new terms backing and laying. Betfair works on commission as they take 5% off of every made bet. They claim they have on average 20 % better odds than their competition.  When mastered, trading on Betfair can be a very profitable source of income.

To add to that, Betfair is one of the best online bookies as far as prop bets and specials are considered. The possibilities of betting on a certain players ranking at the end of the year, head to head battles, top players of certain nations aren’t available anywhere else and if you are into prop betting Betfair is the place for you.

Several accounts

If you are serious about tennis betting, opening an account on several online bookies must be an option. The goal of betting itself is catching and seizing the best value out of a tip. Odds differ from one bookie to another and it’s up to us to spot and catch the best value.

I hope this article has given you an insight on which the best online bookies for tennis betting are and which can be used for certain types of bets.
