Tennis Betting at William Hill
Tennis betting at William Hill
When it comes to serving you up the finest selection of tennis betting odds on the internet, William Hill are smashing it.
From the lines and lawns of the lowliest Challengers to centre court at Wimbledon, you’ll find odds for all your favourite ways to bet on tennis at William Hill.
Read on for all the information you need on tennis betting at William Hill, including how to bet on tennis, frequently asked tennis betting questions and tennis betting tips.
Tennis betting with William Hill at the Grand Slams
The four Grand Slams are the biggest tournaments in tennis and the outright betting for both the men’s and women’s draws for all four are available on William Hill throughout the year.
Living legends of the game, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams continue to vie for odds favouritism in each of them, having done so for much of the last 20 years.
Tennis and tennis betting march on though and a new generation of talent are emerging. Japanese starlet Naomi Osaka has landed the odds in recent Grand Slams, while Alex Zverev proved himself at the vanguard of the emerging men’s talent with his ATP Tour Finals victory in 2018.
Hard-court Slams bookend the big four, with the Australian Open first up and the US Open rounding out the campaign. In between come the French Open on Roland Garros’ famous clay and arguably the most revered of them all, the All England Championships on grass at Wimbledon.
Whether it’s Wimbledon tennis betting odds, US Open tennis betting odds, French Open tennis betting odds or Australian tennis betting odds, William Hill is the home of Grand Slam tennis.
How to bet on tennis at William Hill
As with betting on many sports, William Hill’s traders bring you outright tournament betting and match betting markets for tennis across the globe on a daily basis.
The biggest names in tennis are often priced up at short odds in both, but there are teeming multitudes of other ways to bet on tennis that could deliver you more handsome returns for your betting in their matches.
Set betting odds
Set betting in tennis offers the opportunity to predict the score in sets in a match. In upping the level of detail you need to get correct to win, it provides a great way to get bigger odds about the player you want to back.
Betting on a favourite to close out the game in straight sets is one way to utilise this market, but bigger odds can often be found if you’re prepared to back the underdog to nick a set.
Total games betting odds
An under/over betting market total is fairly self-explanatory, but offers a way to bet on a match without picking sides.
How does tennis handicap betting work? Like total games, handicap betting in tennis allows you to back your opinion about how competitive or uncompetitive a match is going to be.
Typically these markets offer similar odds about both players winning, albeit one has a head start of a certain amount of games for the purposes of the bet, while the other is the same amount of games behind before a ball has been hit.
For example, Novak Djokovic is likely to be a long odds-on favourite against all bar a handful of opponents and backing him in the handicap betting will earn you better odds.
Betting on him to overcome a -5.5 game handicap means he has to win at least six games more than his adversary over the course of their match.
Winning quarter betting/winning half betting
In the biggest tennis tournaments, winning quarter or winning half betting markets are your outright betting alternatives. They provide odds on a player winning their quarter or half of the draw.
Draws are generally available in advance of most tournaments so there’s usually ample opportunity to scour the brackets for juicy odds about players that have a chance of avoiding the biggest seeds.
Tennis is brilliant for in-play bettors and William Hill have all kinds of markets for those that prefer live tennis betting to making their bets before the game begins.
Bet on tennis live with the help of our immersive in-play scoreboard offering you the latest stats.
Total points in a game, the game to go to deuce and game correct score are just a sample of the in-play tennis betting odds on offer.
Tennis betting tips
Bettors are concerned with the question of how to make money betting on tennis. When it comes to tennis betting tips there are plenty of things you can do to increase your chances of placing winning bets.
Tennis form study and keeping up to date with the latest news from the sport are the twin paragons of this pursuit. Taking the time to swat up on them before placing you tennis bets is vital.
As well as how a player has been playing in recent outings, their records on the different surfaces the sport is played on can be particularly informative.
Any clash between Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal will be competitive, but if it’s contested on the Spaniard’s favoured clay, suddenly it’s advantage Rafa.
Similarly, head-to-head records are another way to get an angle on tennis match betting. Players cross paths repeatedly on tour and sometimes their respective strengths and weaknesses can lead to unexpectedly one-sided head-to-head histories.
With injuries and their management a fact of life for top tennis players, a useful tennis betting tip is the importance of checking the news to ensure any player you are betting is in good physical shape.
Following tipsters is another way to gain knowledge of potential winning bets over the course of the tennis season and William Hill have you have your back here too. Check out news.williamhill.com for tennis betting predictions around all the biggest tournaments.
Keeping abreast of the latest promotions at William Hill is our final tennis betting tip, with Flash Odds and Enhanced Odds regularly priced up to offer you more value on the biggest names in the sport.
