French Open Bookmakers

Betting on the French Open


Tennis punters have no shortage of markets to bet on for the average tennis game and that number grows even higher for games played at major tournaments.

Here is an outline of the most popular markets:

Head-to-head betting: This market is pretty simple — you pick the winner of the match, you win the bet. Be warned, different bookmakers have different rules for mid-game retirements, so sometimes if you think you’ve won, you really haven’t.

Set betting: In set betting punters can find odds on who wins a particular set, the length of a set, the number of games in a set and how many games a set will go for.  

Correct score first set: The all-important first set is a popular betting market for punters who want some quick returns in what can be a very long game.

Games handicap: The games handicap is a tool for bookmakers to even out the odds and provide a more competitive match, in terms of betting.

A games handicap could look something like this:

Federer -6.5 games vs. Nadal +6.5

This means that Federer’s margin must be more than 6 games if he wins to cover this spread.

If Federer goes on to win the match 6-4, 5-6, 6-4. 7-6, he has won 24 games in total to Nadal’s 20. If you bet Nadal to cover the +6.5 spread, you would win the bet.
