Betting is inevitably down to luck; you win some and you lose some. However, whilst some people will simply go into a betting shop and place a random bet because they like the name of the sportsperson or horse, others take betting a little more seriously and will do all they can to increase their chances of winning.
There are a number of different things you can do to try and secure a win in this year’s Wimbledon tournament and it is advised that those planning to bet regularly throughout the tournament do their homework beforehand.
One advantage with betting on a tennis match as opposed to a game of football is that there are only two possible outcomes from the match – a draw is not an option. Therefore, if you are planning to bet on the singles or doubles consider the mental aspect of the game.
It is important to research the head-to-heads as some players seem to experience a ‘mental block’ when playing certain players. Rankings are important but take the time to study previous outcomes of the two players involved and see if they have played each other before, and who has been victorious.
Interviews with players can sometimes influence the mind of those planning to make a bet. Sportspeople are very good at convincing themselves and others of a positive outcome so you should research the players and see which ones have suffered a recent injury, sickness or decline in fitness.
These players may still exude confidence but this could be nothing more than a front. Always consider the health of the player and spare some time to consider whether their injuries or situation will put them at a mental disadvantage, as well as a physical one.
To increase the chances of success, it is important that you look at the latest Wimbledon odds on various sites. Many website have databases regarding each player’s records and this will give you the most accurate information about their chance of success.
There are a number of sites that have results and records for juniors and senior tennis players who will be participating in Wimbledon. You should also have a look around for different bookies to see who is offering the best prices for different players.
