Tennis Betting in Canada at Bodog

Whether you’re the occasional bettor who reserves tennis betting for the majors, or a die-hard sports betting fan who doesn’t miss a match, there are lots of ways to bet on tennis at Bodog Sportsbook.

The majority of tennis bets come in during grand slam tournaments, which begin with the Australian Open in January, so you will be able to find tennis odds and lines early on the year. By spring, the top players head to Europe where they stop in Paris for the French Open, and then England for Wimbledon. The US Open is the final leg and happens near the end of summer. Just with these four tournaments, you get the opportunity to bet on tennis based on surface. 

The Davis Cup is another extremely popular tennis tournament for live tennis betting that showcases international team play. What started as a rivalry between British and American tennis players has spiraled into the World Cup of men’s tennis.

At Bodog you can enjoy tennis betting odds on any of the majors ahead of time at the futures market. When the tournaments start, tennis odds are posted, including the moneyline, game and set spreads and total games.

Wimbledon Betting

When talking about tennis betting, Wimbledon is the oldest and perhaps most prestigious of the major championships, Wimbledon is steeped in tradition. It has always been held at the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club in southwest London. 

This is the only major that still uses the traditional grass court surface. Like the hardcourt, the grass court leads to a fast pace and low bounce. 

We’ll return to Roger Federer, who was one of the all-time greats on this surface. He won eight Wimbledon championships in his time, which is one fewer than the great Martina Navratilova, who dominated the women’s singles in the late ‘70s and ‘80s.

Wimbledon betting heats up in late June when the Wimbledon odds are posted for the tournament, but you can find best tennis odds well before that by trying to pick out the tournament winner in the futures market. 

Australian Open Odds

Every year, the grand slam tennis schedule kicks off with the Australian Open, also known as the “Happy Slam” for its relaxed vibe. The tennis betting action takes place at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne Park in Victoria. 

Initially held in 1905, the Australian Open is the youngest of the grand slam tournaments. No longer taking place in the middle of Christmas, the Australian Open shifted to a mid-January schedule, right in the middle of the Australian summer.

This tournament switched from grass to hardcourt in the ‘80s and is now revered for the fast action. The bounce is fairly consistent, enabling players to lean into a bolder style of play. Power rules at the Australian Open, and Novak Djokovic has thrived as a result. The Serbian tennis star has tallied a record 10 Australian Open titles with the first coming in 2008.

To bet on tennis on this tournament, you can shop the Australian Open odds in our sportsbook. Enjoy our tennis betting odds on each round through with our  moneyline, game spreads and total games for a superior spectator experience. 

French Open Odds

The second grand slam tournament on the calendar is the French Open, also known as Roland Garros. This takes place in late May at Stade Roland Garros in the beautiful 16th arrondissement of Paris on a clay court. No other major tennis tournament is played on clay, making this a unique challenge for players. 

The texture of the surface leads to higher bounces and a slower pace of play. Since players have extra time to reach shots, there’s a higher need for strategy with shot placement and defensive play. 

No other player comes close to Rafael Nadal for excelling on the clay surface. The Spanish player has 14 French open titles to his name. On the women’s side, Chris Evert tallied seven titles through her reign in the ‘70s and ‘80s and no other woman has been able to reach her record.  

French Open betting can start in the futures market long before the tournament begins. When the tournament gets underway, the French Open odds are posted in the sportsbook making it possible to find tennis betting odds for French Open game and the best tennis odds and lines to set spreads, moneylines and totals.

US Open Tennis Odds

The US Open is the fourth and final grand slam tournament of the season, taking place at the end of August and start of September. It’s the second-oldest of the major championships, having been founded in 1881, just four years after Wimbledon. 

The US Open takes place at the Flushing Meadows. The hardcourt surface suits players with lots of power and a more aggressive approach. Compared to clay courts, there’s a lower bounce and faster pace with the hardcourt.

In the last two decades we’ve seen Swiss player Roger Federer dominate at the US Open. He won five straight titles from 2004 to 2008 and finished second in 2009 and 2015. On the women’s side, we’ve seen two reigns over the years; Chris Evert won six US Opens in the ‘70s and ‘80s, and Serena Williams won six of her own between 1999 and 2014. 

In the futures section of our sportsbook, you’ll find US Open tennis odds any time of year. These long-term tennis betting odds pay at the end of the tournament. Tennis odds and lines get posted when the matchups are established, making it possible tennis betting on the moneyline, spreads and more. 

Davis Cup

Every year, the Davis Cup draws the top international men’s tennis players to a team competition between nations, and the winning nation is declared the world champion. It happens over four weekends at several host countries which change year-to-year. 

The Davis Cup has taken place since 1900 and it expanded to include more nations as popularity grew to the point where 157 nations entered the competition in 2024—a new record. There’s no bigger international team sporting tournament in the world.

Davis Cup betting heats up in our sportsbook during each leg of the competition. The rounds are spread throughout the year in various cities, so you can find tennis odds all through the year. For the 2024 tournament, the Finals Group Stage is set for September 10 to 15, and the Final 8 is set for November 19 to 24; mark your calendar. Bet on any country to dominate the international courts and bring back the Davis Cup trophy.

Top Tennis Tours

The grand slam tournaments and Davis Cup — both organized by the ITF — are fun with our tennis betting odds, but you can also bet on tournaments on the top tennis tours. The ATP has 64 tournaments, creating a continuous flow of tennis betting opportunities for both singles and doubles throughout the year. At the end of the season, the ATP finals happen.

On the women’s side, the WTA has over 50 events on tap that take the top women’s tennis players around the world, with the tour culminating with the WTA finals.

Preferred Markets and Tennis bets by Bodog bettors

There are several different betting markets in tennis. Choose the tennis bets that give you the best shot of winning a payout.

  • Moneyline: The straightforward moneyline has you choose the winner of a match. The favourite has negative odds that show how much you’d need to bet to win $100, while the underdog has positive odds that show how much you’d win off of a $100 bet.
  • Game Spread: Game spreads require the favourite to beat the underdog by a specific number of games to pay bettors. For example, a 5.5-game spread requires the favourite to beat the underdog by at least 6 games. 
  • Total Games: In tennis, the total games market has you predict if the total number of games between both opponents will exceed the posted number, or go under. 
  • Set Betting: This combo bet asks you to pick the winner of the set and the score; for example, you could bet Gauff to win 2-0 or 2-1.
  • Next Game Winner: These live tennis bets let you try to predict who will win the next game in a match.
  • Set Spread: With set spreads, you’re betting on a player to cover a spread on the number of sets—not games. A 1.5-set spread in a three-set match means the favourite needs to win in straight sets to cover.
