Live Streaming & In-play
The first thing is to consider whether you want live streaming of the action while you’re betting on the tennis. Live streaming is something that is now available for the bulk of tennis tournaments, including the Grand Slam events such as Wimbledon.
Being able to actually watch the tennis while betting on it is clearly an advantage, especially if you want to bet In-Play on a match. In fact, we would always recommend that you have access to the game if you’re planning to bet live or you will place yourself at a pretty big disadvantage in the process.
Betting In-Play is a fast-paced and exciting way to enjoy this wonderful sport of tennis. Bet365, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, Betfair and 10Bet are among the market leaders when it comes to the provision of live markets.
For example, you might have Rafael Nadal facing Novak Djokovic in the 2016 French Open men’s singles final. So there is an opportunity to bet pre-match on a range of markets such as match winner, set score or total games.
However, when the match starts, then there are even more markets and the odds change on a continuous basis in accordance with what’s happening on the court. In addition to match winner, set score and total games, you can get on markets such as Next Set Winner, Next Game Winner and even Next Point Winner!
Every online betting site worth their salt will offer an In-Play betting service on tennis although each bookmaker is different. Some will offer more markets than others. Some betting sites will offer more competitive odds than others and it’s sometimes hard to work this out considering that the prices are always changing.
