WTA Tennis Odds
Welcome to our dedicated page for all the latest odds on big tournaments taking place on the WTA Tour. You can compare women’s tennis odds on the Grand Slams and many more exciting tournaments, allowing you to find the best prices and maximize your profits. We have also provided a detailed explanation of how to read WTA odds, and listed the various tennis betting options that you can choose from.
How to Read WTA Odds
WTA odds compilers at the leading sportsbooks
will assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of the players. They will then assign odds to each player. Unless they are very evenly matched, you will see a favorite
and an underdog
. Serena Williams was the -275 favorite to win the women’s US Open Final in 2019, while Bianca Andreescu was the +220 underdog.
If you see a minus symbol at the start of a set of WTA odds, it tells you the amount of money you need to wager in order to generate a $100 profit. A $275 bet on Williams would have netted you a $100 profit if she had won the match. If the odds start with a plus sign, it tells you the profit you stand to earn from a $100 wager. A $100 bet on Andreescu would have earned you a $220 profit if she went on to win the match.
The numbers are used to guide you, but you can choose any stake you like, provided it falls within the limits offered by the sportsbook. For instance, a $20 wager on Williams would have netted you a $7.27 profit if successful, whereas a $20 wager on Andreescu would have earned you a $44 profit. The larger potential payout on Andreescu told you that she was the underdog. However, Andreescu went on to win the match, showing that outsiders often prevail.
You might also see odds rendered in fractional
or decimal format
. Sticking with the womens tennis final example from 2019, odds of +220 would become 11/5 in fractional format. The number on the left of the slash represents the profit you make by wagering the amount on the right. A $5 bet at 11/5 would therefore earn you a profit of $11.
You get your stake back when your bet is a winner. Decimal odds take that into account. WTA US Open odds of +220 therefore become 3.20 in decimal format. You multiply your stake by that figure to calculate your potential return if successful. A $20 bet at 3.20 therefore earns you a $64 return ($44 profit and your $20 stake back).
Tennis Betting Options
Tennis betting can be broadly grouped into two categories: futures and match bets. Futures wagers relate to long-term events, such as the winner of the WTAUS Open or the Fed Cup. The sportsbooks will analyze the relative strengths of all the players taking part in the US Open before releasing US Open tennis odds. These WTA tennis odds will start with a favorite – generally Serena Williams, Bianca Andreescu, Ashleigh Barty, Simona Halep or Naomi Osaka – and the odds will grow progressively longer until you reach the rank outsiders.
When it comes to WTA tennis matches, the sportsbooks will judge the strengths of the two women competing. They will then release women's tennis odds on a range of markets. The most common option is betting on the winner of the match, but you can also opt for spread betting. For example, if you wanted more value when looking at the US Open tennis betting odds in 2019, you could have bet on Serena Williams -3.5. She would have had to win by 4 clear games – so 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 would not have paid out – but you would have received odds of -120 as opposed to -275.
If you are unsure who will win a particular US women’s tennis match, but you feel like it will either end quickly or turn into a long, drawn-out affair, you can opt for totals betting. The sportsbooks will set a line – for example, 21.5 games – and you simply have to decide whether the total games played in the match will go over that line or stay under it. You can also find prop bets on WTA matches, including the number of aces served in a match, or you can roll multiple bets together into a parlay in a bid to earn a greater profit.
