We provide you with the best tennis betting tips we can find and we try to cover as many games as we can. Whenever there is a Grand Slam tournament, Master 1000 event, and sometimes also smaller 500 and 250 ATP tournament we search for tennis tips and predictions that we believe will have a successful outcome.

Most of the tennis betting tips are on:
- Set Line
- Game Line
- Game Over/Under
- Set Over/Under
Tennis Picks on Moneyline
Moneyline bets are the most popular and simplistic betting form on Tennis. Moneyline tennis betting is also the most common for tennis betting experts. Betting on an outright winner is usually the most logical bet to make but there are exemptions. More on those later.
A money line tennis bet is very simple and straightforward as you only have to select the winner of a match regardless of the spread. As long as the player you are backing wins, you’re all good.
Money Line Tennis Betting at DraftKings
Sometimes tennis betting on an outright winner is not enough. Favorites such as Novak Djokovic will have a ridiculous low payback in the first rounds of any tournament and therefore you might have to look for other formats for your tennis bets.
Tennis Predictions on Spread - Game line and Set line
When betting on spreads for tennis there are two different types of spread: Game line and set line.
Betting on the game line means that you are betting on the spread of total games won by a player in a game.
Game Spread Tennis Betting at DraftKings
Example on Game line spreads: John Isner -1.5 vs Bautista August +6.5 (Miami Open 2021 Round of 16)
If you place a bet at John Isner this means that Isner needs to win 2 more games than Bautista-Agut. The winner of the match does not matter as long as Isner wins 2 or more games than Bautista-Agut.
Let’s look at some scenarios to clarify:
|Isner vs Bautista-Agut||1st set||2nd set||3rd set||Game Spread|
- In scenarios 1-3 Isner wins the match but the winning margin is only good enough in scenarios 1 and 3.
- In Scenario 4 Bautista-Agut wins in 3 sets but due to how excellent Isner played in set 2 he ends up with a game spread of +2 which in this case is enough for a winning game line bet.
Tennis betting on the set line is identical to game line bets but instead of looking at how many games a player wins the focus is on how many sets a player wins.
Set Spread at DraftKings Sportsbook
For 3 sets of matches the spread is usually set to -1.5/+1.5 and for 5 sets of matches the spread will range from -2.5/+2.5 to -1.5/+1.5.
Tennis Picks on Totals (over/under)
Betting on game totals is another common betting form in tennis. The rules are simple, and you either back the over or under. Over-under bets for tennis could be based on the number of games or sets.
Total Games Betting at DraftKings
In a best of 3 sets match, the total games over and under are usually set between +/-19.5 to +/-20.5. If the over/under is an equal number (usually +/-20), and the result is 6-1, 7-6 (=20 games in total), your bet would push and be canceled.
Total Sets – Tennis Betting at DraftKings
For set totals, the over-under line would be +/-2.5 sets. Any game going to a third set would go over, and any two to nothing would go under. The over 2,5 sets tennis predictions are somewhat of a favorite.
Tennis Predictions on Futures
Betting on tennis futures is a widely popular and fun bet to make. Once the draw is out, all sportsbooks will have odds for the tournament winner to make it into the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals.
The upside with tennis future bets is that you can find value odds on some players with an upcoming form that has not yet been included in the sportsbooks calculations when setting the odds.
At USsportsbonus, you will not find too many tennis picks on parlays, but occasionally we will have a selection of parlay picks at hand for you. Parlaying bets is a great way to boost your winnings, but it comes with increased exposure to losing your bet.
Parlaying top seeds (with a good GS) track record in the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round is likely a smart move. The main reason for this is basically that the top seeds try everything in their power to win the majors and make sure to be 100% fit and in form when these events start.
Tennis Computer Picks vs Experts
Computers can't bring any insider knowledge to tennis match predictions. They can only use statistics to generate their "top picks." This doesn't work for tennis betting, and it's why our expert tennis predictions and picks will always be better.

Grand Slam Tennis Predictions
As mentioned above we focus mostly on providing free tennis picks and predictions on Grand slam matches and master tournaments. The tennis season is long and full of games to bet on so you might ask yourself – Why only the major tournaments?
The answer is simple. To become a winning tennis bettor you need to know every single aspect of the game and we have decided to give the major tournaments our full attention. We compile tons of historical data for every single Grand Slam and Masters 1000 tournament and when reading, for example, US Open tennis predictions at USsportsbonus you can rest assured that they are well analyzed and as precise as a tennis pick can be.
Bet on US Open
This tournament is held in the United States in late August and early September every year. It is played on a hard court surface in New York.
Rafael Nadal has won this tournament four times in the last 10 years. Novak Djokovic has won this tournament three times.
In the last three years, we have seen 3 different winners - 2020, Dominic Thiem, 2021, Daniil Medvedev, and in 2022, Carlos Alcaraz. For all three it was their maiden Grand Slam win.
Bet on the Australian Open
This tournament typically is the first Grand Slam held every year.
Rafael Nadal has only won this tournament once. Novak Djokovic has won this tournament nine times.
Bet on Wimbledon
Wimbledon is held in England every year in late June and early July.
Rafael Nadal has won this tournament twice, but not since 2010. Novak Djokovic has won this tournament seven times, including 4 of the last 5 years.
Bet on French Open
This tournament is held in May and June every year. It is held in France on a clay court.
Rafael Nadal typically dominates this tournament. Nadal has won 13 times. Novak Djokovic has won this tournament only once, in 2016.
Bet on ATP CUP
The ATP Cup is a hardcourt tournament played between nations. The first time it was played was in January 2020, and it has only been held twice.
Bet on ATP 250, 500 & 1000
The variety in quality between the 250, 500, and 1000 tournaments vary a lot but we try to offer tennis picks on as many of these as possible.
Tennis odds are calculated based on the player's past performance, as well as the surface of the court being played on. Tennis has three distinct surfaces - hardcourt, clay, and grass.
Most tournaments today are played on hardcourt, but some major tournaments are still on grass and clay surfaces. The game is much different on grass and clay than it is on hardcourt.
So, when we're making tennis predictions, we're also looking at the surface of the court and who has done well on those surfaces in the past. Rafael Nadal is historically very good on clay, which is why he always does so well in the Grand Slam tournament held in France.
Other players excel on the grass surface because they are more finesse players. The players who rely on hard-hitting often do well on the hardcourt, which is where the ball travels the fastest.
