Tennis

A lot of people like to bet on tennis even though it isn’t very popular here in the United States. Tennis is set up so that almost every day there are games. Tours go all over the world, so games are always going on. In the United States, most people are at their desks during work hours.

Another good thing is that the sport’s governing bodies have made a lot of data and metrics public.

Three of the most common ways to bet on tennis are the moneyline, the game or set spread, or the over/under.

1. Moneyline
Most people bet on tennis by playing the moneyline, which is betting on a player to win the match. This means betting on a player to win the match.

You’d have to bet $120 to win $100 on Rafa Nadal beating Roger Federer on the money line. If Federer is +110 in the same match, you’d win $110 on a $100 bet if you bet $100.

If you only want to bet on the winner of the first set in tennis, you can do the same as in baseball or hockey.

2. Game Spread
Another way to bet on tennis is to bet on how many points the game or set will be. Single-participant sports don’t have as much risk as team sports, so the spread is a way to even things up. It might be -4.5 if Novak Djokovic is the favorite in a three-set match against Denis Istomin, but it could also be -1.5. A 6-2, 6-3 victory for Djokovic would cover the spread. If Djokovic beats Istomin 6-4, 6-4, and you bet the +4.5 on Istomin, you will win the bet.

3. Set Spread
This type of bet is set up in the same way as the game spreads. People bet on sets instead of games. If Sloane Stephens is the favorite in her match against Monica Puig, she will also be available at -1.5 sets, just like an MLB favorite is always available at -1.5 runs on the run line. In this case, if you bet on Stephens -1.5 and she wins in straight sets (6-3, 6-0), you win the bet. If Puig wins a set, you’d lose to him.

4. Over/Under
This is a bet on how many games are played in a match. If Radu Albot and Fabio Fognini play a three-set match, the Over/Under may be set at 22.5 games. In order to bet the over, you need the match to last at least 23 games. If Albot wins 7-6, 6-4, the match would be 23 games long and you would have won your bet. If the match ends 6-3, 7-6, you’d lose the bet because the match only went 22 games.

Basketball

An informal term for the NCAA Division I men’s and women’s basketball championship tournaments and the excitement and media attention that comes with them is “March Madness.” The single-elimination tournaments start in March and have 64 (for the women’s tournament) and 68 (for the men’s) teams in them. They can either win their conference title or be chosen by the NCAA’s selection committee to be an at-large team.

In order to qualify for March Madness, according to BasketballInsiders, it can be highly profitable if you use the elite and safe bookmakers, bet at opportune moments and manage your bankroll correctly and take advantage of the vast intriguing ways to profit from the biggest sporting event of the year. Doing proper research helps find out more about the differences between each bookie and maybe improve the overall betting experience during March madness. The American Gaming Association says that more than 47 million people bet on the tournament each year, with the total bets going over $8.5 billion, which is more than the GDP of the United States. This March Madness betting guide will help you make the most money while you watch the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Golf

Users bet on who will win a golf tournament when you place a bet on the tournament line. Most golf tournaments are played by one person against another, so you have to pick a winner from more than 100 people. The reward for correctly predicting the winner is usually very high, but this is not always the case.

In golf, it can be hard to keep track of your money because there is so much money to be made betting outright. When betting on a tournament, you should stay within your means and set a limit for how much money you bet each week on it. This can be very difficult, and you may not have a winner for weeks. But even if just one winner makes up for a lot of weeks and more, especially if it wasn’t a big favorite. You can get some money back by pairing your outright bets with bets on the top 10 or top 20 instead of going all-in on outright winner bets.
