How To Bet On Women’s Tennis
When you’re betting on tennis, there are two main ways to bet: to predict the outright winner of the tournament and the winner of each individual matchup. Take note of the odds next to each player’s name and if the odds show a minus sign, that’s how much you would bet to win $100. If the odds show a plus sign, that’s the amount you would win if you bet $100. You can also find spread betting options, which allows you to bet on who will win the match and by how much. For example, it could be one player -2.5 games, which means they would have to win by three games or more to cover the spread.
