Head to Head
Our simplest and most popular Sport betting option. Head to Head gives you the chance to pick which of the competitors in a particular match will eventually win.
Note: A tennis match is deemed to have started with the first serve of the match. For head to head betting including in-play betting, if one player Withdraws or is disqualified and the match has already started, the player progressing to the next round will be deemed the winner.
Total Games in Match
This option allows you to pick how many games will be played in the match. The Bookies will provide a number, called a line. You can then decide whether you think the total points scored will be Under or Over that line.
For example, the Bookies might provide a line of 21.5 points. If the total games in that particular match is 21 or less, all bets on Under 21.5 would be paid out. Likewise, if the total games in that particular match was 22 or more, Over 21.5 would be paid out.
Total Sets in Match
This option allows you to pick how many sets will be played in the match.
The Handicaps option outlines how many games the Bookies think separate the two competitors in a particular match. You can then decide if a player is likely to do better than the Bookies have predicted.
For example, in the 2016 Australian Open Final, the Bookies predicted the Novak Djokovic would win 5-6 games more than Andy Murray over the duration of the match.
The Points Start option therefore appeared as:
Novak Djokovic -5.5
Andy Murray +5.5
Note: The Handicap includes a half point to eliminate the possibility of a draw and therefore guarantee a payout to Punters.
Punters who thought Djokovic would win by 6 games or more backed Djokovic -5.5. Punters who thought Murray would prevent Djokovic from winning by 6 or more backed Murray +5.5. In the end, the final score was Djokovic 6/1, 7/5, 7/6 – a winning margin of 8 games for Djokovic. Therefore, Djokovic -5.5 was resulted as the winning selection.
Similar to the Winning Team & Margin option available on other sports, Sets Betting allows you to predict not only which player will win a particular tennis match, but also the final score in terms of sets.
For example, for the 2016 Australian Open Final, the selections within the Sets Betting Option were:
As Novak Djokovic won this match in straight sets, Djokovic 3-0 was resulted as the winning selection.
Note: For sets betting, the match must be completed for bets to stand. If a player Withdraws for any reason before the required sets are completed, then all bets will be Void. If the number of sets change, all bets are Void.
This is a very popular bet type as it pays much higher dividends than the Head to Head.
