How Betting on Tennis is Growing

Guest Betting on Tennis

In the world of sports betting, there are definitely some major players, with soccer and horse racing absolutely huge on a global scale. While some events are big, such as the Super Bowl or the FIFA World Cup, it is the ability to bet on sports year-round that make them such a huge draw. What you may not be aware of is that professional tennis betting is right up there in terms of betting numbers, plus it is getting more and more popular with each passing year with more and more viewers using tennis betting sites. When you understand why it is becoming that way, it may just make you think about what to wager on next.

The most obvious reason why tennis is such a major draw for the betting public is because there are so many games to choose from. A new event starts every week, with close to 100,000 games played over the course of an average season. That represents a lot of betting opportunities for gamblers looking for some action. Since these tournaments – roughly 1,500 per year – are played in different parts of the world, it’s often possible to be betting on individual games from morning to night.

It certainly helps that tennis is the most popular individual sports in the world, with over 1 billion people tuning into to watch Wimbledon each year. Another big benefit for betting companies is that the major events in tennis come at a time of the year when very little else is going on in the sports world. 3 of the 4 major sports in the US are in their offseason, as are all the major domestic soccer leagues across Europe. It’s a perfect storm that blows bettors in the direction of the tennis courts of the world.

Another great thing about tennis is the availability of raw data and past performances that bettors can gain access to. There are countless sites that show previous head to head meetings, while also breaking down how well each player on the tour does on a specific surface or tournament. Being able to make smart betting choices due to the availability of past performances and data is huge, and tennis is one of the very best at compiling that data and making it easy for the average person to read and figure out.

The coverage for tennis is great, both on TV and online, and since we all know that watching the games you wagered on is a ton of fun, that exposure helps. It’s also great that many online gaming sites allow in-game betting on tennis. You can literally bet on every point, game, or set, as well as just the overall outcome, which is particularly fun when the game in question looks to be a one-sided affair where a straight up win bet is not very profitable. Tennis betting is here to stay and is likely only going to become more popular in the coming years.
