Betting on tennis can be a fun, exciting and potentially rewarding activity. However, you need to bet with caution and be risk aware to be able to enjoy it properly.
Tennis betting has gotten quite a bad reputation in the press lately due to unsuccessful punters and gamblers blaming and shaming players publicly for losing matches. In some cases it has gotten quite ugly.
This is a shame because it’s bad for the sport since there is a lot of money that could be injected from betting companies into tournaments in the form of sponsorships. The struggle is finding a good format for this to be done without tainting the sport or inviting match-fixing and player harassment.
Is there a way? I certainly hope and think so. But it’s not going to be easy.
If you’re interested in betting on tennis you can try Bet365 (Europe), Leo Vegas (Europe) or Bovada.lv (USA, Canada). Both sites have live betting, solid customer service and a vast selection to bet on. Bovada uses Bitcoin however, so that’s good to know.
Most betting sites offer some kind of first deposit bonus and they’re usually quite generous. Remember that when you take such a bonus it is usually tied to wagering requirements meaning you have to reach certain turnover requirements to be able to withdraw your money.
