One of the keys we have aimed to be able to succeed in sports betting in tennis is information. The other specialization. If you want to win money in sports betting you will have to do it through selecting very well the events in which you invest and the knowledge you have of them.
Tennis is one of the sports stars in all sports houses. First, because it is one of the few sports that allow you to bet every day in a major tournament. You can have your favorite tennis players and watch them play, practically daily, but in addition, tennis has the advantage that it is one of the easiest events to follow live and, consequently, have more information. Tennis is a tremendously specialized sport and where the technical, tactical and physical level of its professionals is evener. It is true that there are a number of players that in the important tournaments usually arrive at the last rounds; although often the quotations do not correspond with the possibilities of that they are eliminated.
However, to win money with sports betting in tennis is much more important to know the markets that can offer you other tennis players than the three or four best in the world, whose prices, as we say, are usually much lower than the benefits that you can make a long-term bet on them. The explanation is simple. Novak Djokovic has won almost all of his matches this year. In August, after the end of the US Open had only lost a game in which he had finished without injury, the semi-finals of Roland Garros.
However, his contributions have become so low that even if you had bet on him in every game, only with the defeat of Federer you would not have made up for the small profits that your victories would have given you. However, there are many features that can help you understand how and when to bet on a tennis player or another depending on factors as simple as the surface where you play.
There are players who have certain characteristics that help them win matches against players, a priori better than them. Let’s talk about two clear examples. One is Albert Montanes. The Catalan player is a clay specialist. In fact, there are many Spanish who is professionals only because they are able to win a certain number of games playing on this surface, for example, also Pablo Andújar.
There are clear examples of tennis players who have specialized a lot on these surfaces in which the serve is not so definitive: So, despite having a serve that is not at all decisive and that only allows them to put the ball into play, they can to defend themselves against the ‘gunners’ of the American circuit or of players who define their matches in two strokes, a good serve and, at most, a good right or a good volley. In this case, the surface, as we announce, is definitive. Albert Montañés and Pablo Andújar can arm their blows with more tranquility. Its mechanisms of beating to the ball are very slow. They need a lot of time and space to technically arm all their punches in such a way that when the ball kicks them lower and comes faster, (which happens when playing on cement, carpet or grass), they can not lift it to continue with the point.
Their hard rides, especially if they have started the season well on clay courts, may be relatively high, but their chances against specialists on other surfaces are very limited. And backward. There are players who do not even try to play games in the brick dust because they know their difficulties in earning points. Their flat blows are absorbed by the surface and lift the ball more than they would like to be allowed to attack. Then, their mobility is much smaller. Players of a larger complexion are more powerful and can hit stronger, but if they move from one side to another, they end up giving up the points for pure exhaustion.
In the same situation but, conversely, we can find players like Ivo Karlovic. Difficult to see on rough surfaces, but a specialist on hard courts or indoors. The Croatian survives in professionalism because he has a very difficult weapon to deactivate for his rivals on fast surfaces. The service. It is able to win 75% of its first services against any player in the world, which leaves its rivals a very narrow margin to break the service … so, at least it is usually guaranteed tiebreak. With this, it puts back the parties much more even than the tennis between him and his rivals really is.
To make money betting on tennis is very important to know the characteristics of each player. His direct confrontations against his rival. (Head to Head). Analyzing the clashes between players, (which can be seen on the same website of the ATP or even in the bookies that offer statistics), you can know better what are the options that have a player or another to win.
There are also tennis players who are very safe. Players who do not get higher in the world ranking because they can not with the best in the world, but always win their matches against other players of a lower profile. An example of this tennis profile is Stanislas Wawrinka. The Swiss manage with ease on all surfaces and every time he plays against a tennis player with a ranking lower than his own, he ends up winning. It is fallible, like all the axioms that arise in the betting world, but, like David Ferrer, is a tennis player very difficult to beat who has to have a bad day or meet with an entity rival that is toned to fall.
Ferrer, for example, is a tennis player who in many matches against Top 10, (the players who are in the top 10 of the ranking), does not party as a favorite: However, in matches that are disputed, especially on clay, is practically infallible.
So tennis is a very specialized sport. You will have to be aware of the current situation, the states of form, statistics that each player presents on certain surfaces (cement, carpet, clay, grass, indoor …) and know what their characteristics are and if they adapt to those of the rival and surface. If you study it well, tennis can be one of the simplest sports on which to predict.
