Tennis Betting Strategies
Betting on tennis is relatively straight forward, but there’s plenty to think about before you back a winner. In Grand Slams in particular, the pressure is ramped up so it’s worth analysing the following before backing any player:
Like any sport, a player in good form is going to have a higher chance of winning. A player on a good run can cause upsets and beat almost anyone if they’re full of confidence. You may even be able to get some good odds on an upset if an underdog is in a fine spell of form.
On the reverse side, a player struggling for form is more likely to suffer an upset or defeat.
Playing styles can differ greatly in tennis so it’s worth studying how the players match up and whether certain styles are going to be exposed by the other player. For example, a player may have a poor backhand game, which could then be exploited by someone who enjoys forcing the backhand.
Performances In Latter Stages Of Competitions
As mentioned above, nerves and temperament in major tournaments can play a huge part in winning. For those new to the latter stages of tournaments, they aren’t going to be as comfortable managing that as the likes of Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal.
Equally, there are some older players who just struggle when it comes to the crunch. Study recent finishing positions and where they have finished in the same tournament in years gone by and uncover whether there are any correlations that might suggest they can’t handle the pressure on the big stage.
Tennis is an intense sport. We’ve all seen the likes of Andy Murray and Roger Federer struggle to come back from injuries down the years, and often stars will rush themselves back for the major tournament.
Analyse recent injuries of players and try to figure out if they’re fully fit. While it may not be a problem getting through the early stages, once the intensity is picked up and the competition gets harder, players with niggles are going to struggle to stay in the game.
