Live betting sports is one of the fastest growing recreation types, and tennis is the top chosen sport for wagering due to the back-and-forth swings in momentum during a match.
Live betting tennis can be hard but it also can be extremely profitable. If you are a beginner, all of the following strategies are best practiced for you to sharper your ability to win a bet when watching the match.
LOOSE THE SCOREBOARD
Never based on a scoreboard to place a live bet, it is not trust-worthy as there are several variables to consider.
While tennis can be a team sport or an individual sport, the result depends on an individual player who is highly susceptible to choking. This tends to happen at a higher rate on the major tournament. The longer the rallies are, the more tension and pressure the player may feel, increasing level of unforced errors.
Noticing the emotional level of a player is a telltale sign which can be seen obviously in the way the player’s ball toss, service motion, shot selection, footwork around the court and so on.
SURFACE AND COURT SPEED
Beginner should always check the CPI (Court Pace Index), which gives information about whether courts are playing fast or slow.
The slower the court speed, the easier it is for players to choke. Windy weather can also affect players’ service motions and timing on the ball. Altitude is also an contribution factor with huge effect as certain clay courts play faster than hard courts if they’re played high enough above sea level. If the game is indoor hard courts, the number of chokes might lessen, as the serve is more effective and the rallies are shorter due to the quicker, lower-bouncing conditions.
Some players might be eager heading into a matchup but can be very slow to find the right rhythm, especially if they compete with a new opponent. It will be even harder and takes more time to read the opponent’s serve and patterns of play which might lead to struggling at the end.
Players who start slow might gain confidence and are warm to the conditions gradually have more advantages. This is especially important at the beginning of season as players have not have chance to play on these surfaces for several months and it takes time to get familiar.
WHAT’S THE BEST BET?
There are numerous options for you to bet either on match winner, set winner or the winner of a game in any set.
Game betting is an interesting option if you expect the server to be nervous and get choked when closing out a match. Set betting is also an solid option, if you have a close matchup and someone loses a set in devastating fashion.
Hedge pre-match money line bets is a good starting point as it can help you lock in profit. And, if you’re placing pre-match wagers on tennis, it can also be worthwhile following it in-play as players can choke for a multitude of reasons.
