This is another popular market for tennis betting. To bet on the total number of games played in a match of tennis is often a simple 2 way market. In this betting type, you need to predict how many sets there will be and how easily each set could be won For that you have to bet on over or under. For example, if you bet on over 20.5 games and the total number of games was 21, then you would have won the bet. Similarly, if the total number of games was below 20, you would have lost the bet. This betting type gives you the benefit of just predicting the correct score line rather than predicting the overall winner. Total Games 2 way Accumulator betting can help you overcome the long odds of your bet.
The best way to guess the total number of games correctly is to observe the serve and return of both the players. Furthermore, statistics can also provide you a better insight. Stats for “first serve in” and “second serve in” and the percentages of points won for both the serves should behelpful. Usually, a strong and consistent 1st serve is the basis for the win of many service games, but a strong and consistent 2nd serve is a base for a good 1st serve. The way the serves are placed is also important to notice. Especially when TV broadcasts show a heat map to reveal the landing of serves, that can be of great help for you.
Another important thing to observe for yourself is the position of the player when they return, and how well they study their opponent’s serve. The way you can observe this is by keeping your eyes on the player when they receive the opponent’s serve. Notice their body language and movements; whether they move a bit forward, make a little jump, block or swing their racket, etc. This also includes another intricate detail which may be difficult to notice – when the returning player is studying the opponent’s serve well, they will pick the backhand or forehand grip well before hitting the shot. This allows the player to return the serve in a better, more aggressive, and consistent manner. Similarly, if a player has not read the opponent’s serve well enough, they are likely to “slice return” which is a weaker return. While reading a player’s return,you will also observe that the worst return is when the ball ends up on the longline side, usually high and with depth or speed. Such a return gives the opponent the chance to hit an aggressive cross-shot, allowing him to take the point easily.
All of these observations will assist you in identifying approximately how many breaks could there be in a set. A good serving and return between the players is likely to result in a tiebreaker.If one player appears to be comparatively better both while serving and returning, this increases the chance of fewer games for them to play in order to win the set.
