Spread Tennis Betting

Spread bets are most popular in case of five set matches and there are understandable reasons. During three set matches the spread bets of -1.5 require 2:0 win and that’s why sometimes this particular spread bets aren’t accepted if we are talking about tennis betting. Instead, bets on the exact result of the match are offered. For five set tennis matches there are -1.5 spread bets offered. That means a player wins 3:0 or 3:1. -2.5 spread bets also can be placed suggesting tennis player of bettor’s choice wins 3:0.
