Game, Set, Match: Premium Tennis Betting at Spin Casino

While horse racing is known as the sport of kings, did you know that royalty was also instrumental in creating and popularizing the game of tennis? The 13th-century French King Louis X was a keen player of tennis’ predecessor, jeu de palm, and helped spread it to courts all over Europe. Two centuries later, King Henry VIII of England (yes, the one with the six wives) helped continue tennis’ association with royalty, and even now, the Wimbledon championships are patronized by the current royal family.

So what is tennis, anyway? Simply, tennis is a racket sport that can be played either by individuals or pairs playing against each other. It’s one of the most popular individual sports in the world, with millions of casual players in over 200 countries. No wonder, then, that tennis betting is one of the most popular options when it comes to online sports betting. And it’s even less of a wonder that Spin Sports India is one of the most popular choices for anyone who wants to bet on tennis – not only does Spin Sports India offer punters a huge range of betting options, its tennis odds are widely considered among the best in the business.

Navigating Tennis Betting Tournaments

Since tennis is an individual – or, at most, two-person – sport, it doesn’t have the same club culture as team sports like football, cricket, or basketball. Instead, players compete in a series of tours organized by the sport’s major governing bodies, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) and the International Tennis Federation (ITF), as well as the Olympics. Let’s take a look at the top-level tournaments run by each organization.

Tennis’ flagship tournaments are the Grand Slams, which are made up of the Australian Open (played on a hardcourt surface), Wimbledon (played on grass) and the US Open (played on Astroturf). The oldest and most prestigious of the professional tournaments, they have singles, doubles, and mixed doubles events. They are also the largest, with 128 players in the singles draw. Men’s Grand Slam matches are best-of-five, while women’s are best-of-three.

While the Grand Slams are open to both men and women, the less prestigious competitions are segregated by gender and run by the ATP for male players and the WTA for female ones. One level down from the Grand Slams are the ATP tennis tournaments. The most prestigious of these is the ATP Tour World Master’s 1000, a series of nine tournaments held every year, and offer players both substantial prize money and ATP ranking points.

The women’s tour structure is a little more complicated – the next level down from the Grand Slams are the Premier events, divided into four Premier Mandatory, five Premier 5, and twelve Premier tournaments. Like their ATP counterparts, these are an essential part of the professional circuit. Apart from the various tour circuits, there are two other major events in world tennis – the Olympics (especially for doubles players) and the annual Davis Cup, also known as the World Cup of Tennis. In both these events, players compete as part of a national team.

Unlike many other sports – like cricket or football, for example – women’s tennis is as popular as the men’s game, and the tennis betting options available on Spin Sports India reflect that, with odds available on all manner of tennis betting lines.

How betting on tennis works with SpinSports India

Since it’s an individual sport, tennis betting works a little differently than betting on other sports like Cricket or Football. You can of course place a standard moneyline bet – that is, a bet on who will win the match. You can also bet on game spreads – that is, by how many games a player will win a match by – or even set spreads, aka the number of sets a player will win a match by. You can also make what are called proposition bets, or props, which are more offbeat and higher risk. You could, for instance, bet on the exact number of sets played, or whether there will be a tie-break. Props bets are generally only available for certain tournaments, generally bigger ones.

When it comes to tennis betting, Spin Sports India is a great choice for many reasons. Not only does the site offer a huge variety of betting options on all kinds of matches, punters can also avail of a free welcome bet of up to Rs 20,000. For punters looking for live betting options, Spin Sports India also offers In-Play, which lets you bet on matches as they happen, with up-to-the-minute odds to help you make your bets. Don’t feel like tennis? There’s a whole range of other sports available, as well as a live casino and even esports.

Frequently Asked Questions About Tennis Betting

Is it legal to bet on tennis in India?

Yes, absolutely. There is no legal issue with betting online or online casinos in India. Spin Sports India is a part of Spin Palace, which has been operational in the online gambling space since 2001.

What is set betting in tennis?

Set betting in tennis is when you bet on the number of sets a player will win. The majority of matches are best of three and will have a set line of +1.5 or -1.5. In a three-set match, you’re basically betting that the favourite will win in straight sets. If you bet on the underdog, you win the bet if they win at least one set. When it comes to five-set matches, things get a little more complicated. For five-set matches you need to pay attention to the set line in comparison to the number of sets. During Grand Slams, for instance, you might see set lines of -2.5, meaning the favourite must win in straight sets for you to win the bet.

How does tennis betting work?

Tennis betting, since it’s an individual sport, doesn’t work quite the same way as betting on team sports like cricket or football. Unlike those sports, where there are a lot of variables in play, tennis only has to account for one or at most two players, which presents its own unique advantages and challenges. In addition, the major tournaments all use seeding, which can also affect the odds. Some other tennis betting tips to keep in mind when it comes to tennis betting online: It’s important to keep in mind the tournament is happening on. If it’s clay, Nadal is automatically more of a favourite than he would be on grass. It’s also important to note whether it’s a Grand Slam or not – many players understandably put in a lot more time and effort into the big four than they would for an ATP Masters 1000 or Premier tournament.

How to bet on tennis over/under?

Betting over/under on tennis is a little different than betting over/under in cricket or football. In tennis betting, the over/under number refers to the number of games played – you bet whether the total number of games played in the match will be greater than (over) or lesser than (under) a given number. So say for example you see a three- set match between World Number 1 and World Number 2 with an over/under of 23.5. If Number 1 beats Number 2 7-6, 2-6, 6-2 for a total of 29 games played, the match would have gone over. If on the other hand Number 1 beats Number 2 in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2, the match would go under, since only 15 games were played. Betting over/under is a good strategy if you’re not sure who will win, since you’re betting on the length of the match instead.
