It might come as a surprise to some to learn that one of the most popular sports to bet on in the USA is tennis. However, if you think about it, this makes logical sense.
Billions of dollars are wagered annually on tennis. Around the world, only soccer draws a higher wagering handle over the course of a year.
Tennis is a 50-50 proposition. It’s one player facing the other, or in the case of doubles, one pairing against the other. There aren’t dozens of players who can make an impact upon the outcome.
On top of that, handicapping tennis isn’t as complicated as other sports. Unlike a golf tournament, where any number of players could win each week, the form charts tend to show much more consistent structure on the tennis court. Generally, the pool of potential winners of an event is quite shallow.
In terms of individual matches, there’s plenty of head-to-head data on past performances for any matchup, including breaking down their records on each type of surface: grass, clay or hard court.
The advent of online wagering made tennis a more popular play, because there are generally multiple tournaments in action every week. In-play wagering has ramped up the popularity of tennis betting even further. With its structured format, a tennis match provides many opportunities for live wagering.
Is it any wonder then that two of the top online sports betting sites in the USA are currently offering tennis promotions?
Both Unibet US and Bet365 online sportsbooks are giving bettors in the USA a little more bounce with their tennis betting. NJ/PA/IN players 21+ only. Check out other bonuses and promotional offers.
