Tennis Odds Explained

Any time there is a matchup between two players, one of those players is perceived to be the most likely to win (the favourite) and the other player is perceived to be the most likely to lose (the underdog). Tennis betting sites know that if they gave the same payouts for both players, everybody would always bet on the favorite. In order to generate equal betting activity on both sides of the bet, tennis bookmakers offer different odds for each player.

The goal of every bookmaker is to get an equal amount of betting action on both sides of the bet. That way they can pay off the winners with the money the losers lost. Tennis bookmakers try to avoid situations where everyone takes the same side of a bet. If that bet wins, the bookmaker will have to pay the winners from out of pocket.

There are several different formats for displaying tennis odds around the world. The odds listed here are in moneyline format but most punters are more comfortable with fractional odds or decimal odds. Online tennis betting sites offers punters the ability to view odds in whatever format they’re familiar with. In Europe and many parts of the world, fractional odds are most common. In Australia, most punters use decimal odds.

When I first started betting on sports, figuring out the odds was the most difficult part for me. Eventually I found out that tennis betting odds aren’t as complicated as I thought they were. Here’s a quick rundown of how each odds format works.

Moneyline Tennis Odds

Moneyline tennis odds are also called “American Odds” because this format is popular in the United States. With this odds format, each tennis player is listed with a positive or negative number next to his name. Money lines are based around the $100 figure, but negative and positive money lines mean different things. A sample bet may look something like this:

Rafael Nadal -500

David Ferrer +330

Rafael Nadal is the favorite in this match, indicated by he negative (-) sign in front of 500. Negative money lines tell us how much money we have to wager in order to win $100. In this case, we’ll have to wager $500 for every potential $100 in winnings (or $5 to win $1).

David Ferrer is the underdog in this match, indicated by a positive sign next to his odds. Positive money lines tell us how much we would win from a $100 wager. In this case, we will win $330 for every $100 we bet, or $3.30 for every $1.00 we wager.

Remember:

  • Negative sign – Favorite – how much we have to bet to win $100.
  • Positive sign – Underdog – how much we can win per $100 bet.

Fractional Tennis Odds

Fractional odds are the favorite among tennis punters in the UK and other areas. With these odds, the tennis bookmaker uses a fraction to tell you how much money you stand to profit per unit wagered. For example, the following bet uses the same exact odds as above except displayed in fractional format:

Rafael Nadal   1/5

David Ferrer    33/10

As the favorite, Rafael Nadal gets low paying odds because he’s considered more likely to win the match. The fraction next to his name tells us that we will have to wager 5 units for every unit in profit. So if we wager £500 on Nadal, we’ll get a £100 payoff if he wins.

David Ferrer gets more attractive odds because he is the underdog in this tennis matchup. Using fractional odds, we see that we will win 33 units for every 10 units we wager. Or if you want to break it down, we will win 3.3 units for every 1 unit we wager. So if we wager £100 on Simon, we’ll win £330 if he wins the match.

Remember:

  • The left side of the fraction tells how many units you will win.
  • The right side of the fraction tells how many units you must risk.

Decimal Tennis Odds

Also known as “European Odds,” the decimal odds format is the most popular in Europe, Canada and Australia. As implied, these odds are expressed in simple decimal format. These are actually the easiest odds of all to use. All you have to do is multiply your wager by the odds and it will tell you how much you will be paid (including original wager) if your bet wins. Here is the same example once again, except displayed in decimal odds:

Rafael Nadal 1.20

David Ferrer 4.30

Now all you have to do is multiply your wager times each player’s odds and you’ll see how much you will win with a successful bet. Let’s use €100 as an example bet. If you want to bet on Nadal, multiply €100 times 1.20 and you get a total of €120 (including your original wager).

If you want to bet on Ferrer, multiply €100 times 4.30 and you get a total of €430. Again, these odds include the return of your original wager. So with a €100 bet, you receive a total of €330 in profit. As you can see, these odds all match up no matter which format you use.

Remember:

  • Multiply your original stake by the decimal odds to find out how much you will win.
  • These odds include your original wager in the payout.
