How & Where to Bet on Wimbledon 2022
Tennis betting sites offer you a range of wagering options for Wimbledon while the tournament is underway. Also, you can make futures bets months before the event – winner odds released just before an event begins are referred to as the “opening” odds.
Tennis Futures Bets: What Are They?
Tennis futures bets are wagering options that let you place action on certain outcomes before the tournament. Online sportsbooks usually release odds for Wimbledon shortly after the conclusion of the previous tournament. The most popular futures bet is wagering on who will be the outright winner of the tournament. Other popular options include:
- Stage of Elimination
- To Reach The Final
- Name The Finalists
- Quarter Winners
- First Time Winner
- Tournament Specials
Wimbledon Tennis – Moneyline Betting
This wagering option lets you bet on the outright winner of a specific matchup. The underdog in a matchup usually has positive (+) odds, and the favorite has negative (-) odds. Positive odds show how much you can win from a $100 stake, while negative odds show how much you need to wager to secure a potential return of $100.
|04/03/22 @ 10:00||Roger Federer||-2.5 (-150)||-235||O22.5 (+110)|
|Andy Murray||+2.5 (+130)||+190||U 22.5 (-130)|
Using the example above, if you place a $100 moneyline bet on Murray to beat Federer, you will win $190 and a total payout of $290 ($100 initial stake + $190 – +190 odds – in winnings = $290) if your prediction is correct. However, if you place a $230 bet on Federer to beat Murray and the favorite wins, you make $100 and get a total return of $330 ($230 initial stake + $100 – -230 odds – in winnings = $330).
Wimbledon Game Spread Bets
Betting on the game spread in a tennis match is when you wager on a player to cover his or her spread with the total number of games won. For example, if Gael Monfils (+4.5) plays Novak Djokovic. Monfils could lose the game (6-7, 6-7, 4-6) in straight sets but would still secure you a winning return because he only lost by four total games and therefore has covered the spread.
Betting on Set Spreads at Wimbledon
Wagering on set spreads is similar to game spreads but easier to track. Spreads are usually set at 1.5 — (at 2.5 for mismatches). For instance, if you make a set spread bet on Djokovic at -1.5 in his match against Nick Kyrgios, he needs to win the match in no more than four total sets for you to get a winning return.
Over/Under (total games) Tennis Bets
Over/under bets let you wager on the length of the match. The over/under line can vary and depends on how evenly matched Vegas oddsmakers expect the two competitors to be. For example, a matchup expected to go five sets would have a higher over/under total than a matchup between two mismatched players.
An array of prop betting options for Wimbledon become available a few days before and throughout the prestigious event. Popular prop bets include predicting the exact score or whether there will be a tiebreak during a specific matchup. Other Wimbledon prop bets let you place action on which round a player will exit the tourney or if a certain competitor will score an ace. More bizarre prop bets include whether a player will hit a ball boy or if a player will argue with the umpire.
Live Wimbledon Bets
Online sportsbooks provide you with a variety of wagering options while a Wimbledon tennis match is in play. Odds on the moneyline or set spreads change according to what happens in the matchup, which you can lock in by placing a bet mid-match.
