Expecting a player to dominate the match? Tennis handicap markets are available to bet on for games and sets. Below is a breakdown of how handicap markets are settled.
Game Handicap – For example, a 'Game Handicap 3.5' – Player A (first player listed in the match below) is assigned the handicap value of -3.5 games. Conversely, Player B (the second player listed in match) is assigned the opposite of this value which in this case would be +3.5 games. So for a handicap bet on Player A to be deemed a winner, Player A needs to win by four or more games overall. A successful handicap bet on Player B happens if Player B loses by three or less games overall (or even wins more games than Player A).
Set Handicap – For example, a 'Set Handicap -1.5' – Player A (first player listed in the match) is attributed the handicap value of -1.5 sets (Absolute difference between Player A sets won and Player B sets won must be greater than or equal to 2 sets for this selection to be deemed a Winner eg. Player a wins 2-0 in a 3 set match or Player A wins 3-0 or 3-1 in a 5 set match). Conversely, Player B (second player listed in match) is attributed the opposite of this value which in this case would be +1.5 sets.
