Tennis odds refer to the probability of a certain outcome in a tennis match.

Additionally, tennis odds provide a glimpse into the potential outcome of a match, helping tennis fans gauge the performance of players and their chances of winning.
Several factors influence tennis odds, including the tennis players’ performance history, their form leading up to the match, and their head-to-head record against their opponents.

How Do Odds Work in Tennis?
Before betting on tennis, you will need to learn how to read tennis betting odds first. The odds for tennis betting manifest in three formats: American, decimal, and fractional. The latter two are straightforward.
American odds, most used in American sportsbooks, show as either a positive number (e.g. +1000) or negative number (e.g. -200). These indicate how much is won on a $100 bet ($1,000 with the example) and what wager amount is needed to win $100 ($200 in the example).
Types of Betting in Tennis
Tennis’s game handicap is the point spread of the sport. Oddsmakers give or subtract games from a player. If a player has “-4” listed, it means 4 games will be deducted from his final score. He is the favorite.
Alternatively, his opponent will have +4 indicating he is the underdog and four games will be added to his final score. The winning bet is whoever wins after their game handicap is applied.
Example of Betting in Tennis
How do I read tennis betting odds? Tennis betting odds are typically represented as moneyline odds, where a negative number represents the favorite and a positive number represents the underdog.
For example, if a player has odds of -110, you would need to bet $110 to win $100, whereas if a player has odds of +140, you would win $140 for a $100 bet.
Let’s look at another example of betting on game handicaps in tennis. This is a line that has opened:
In this match, Nadal is a four-game favorite against Zverev. It means that Nadal needs to win by five games or more when we tally their total score. The match is played and Nadal beats Zverev 7-5, 6-4, 6-3. Nadal “covers the spread” as they say as his total of 19 games, minus 4 (-4) equals 15, which still beats Zverev’s score of 12. With the odds, a $115 bet on Nadal would net a $100 profit.
The futures market is another one that is popular and potentially lucrative. Let’s use the Wimbledon women’s outright as an example:
Only one of these players can win the Wimbledon hence only one bet here will win. Due to how long the odds are, it is possible to wager on more than one player and still profit. If we bet $100 each on Osaka at +600 and Saraki at +2000, either one winning will cover the wagers plus provide a profit
