Tennis Spread Betting
During Grand Slam and Masters Series events the spread betting firms like to get a piece of the action. Those punters who wish to play the variety of markets offered by these firms should stick to the well-touted precept of buying low and selling high.
Set supremacy markets are desirable to punters who are wishing to oppose jollies as selling the hot favourite on these markets usually carries little downside, with the market leader often needing to win in straight stets to inflict serious damage.
Punters are always eager to buy the total number of games in matches at Wimbledon, the French Open and the Australian Open as players do not play a tie-break in the fifth set at these events, so buying games in a match that develops into a five-set marathon can yield a sizeable return. Game buyers hit the jackpot in the 2003 Australian Open when Andy Roddick defeated Younes El Aynaoui 21-19 in the fifth set.
Selling games resulted in a catastrophic loss to others, though, further underlining the perils associated with spread betting in tennis.
