Bets placed on the Davis Cup are generally restricted to ties featuring the 16 seeded World Group countries, which compete in a knockout format.

Punters choose from the following betting options:

  • Who they think the ultimate Davis Cup Champion will be – “Betting to win” is in fact the most common way to wager on tennis.
  • Several aspects of the individual ties from match results – for example, Andy Roddick to beat James Bjorkman in the first rubber of a tie between USA and Sweden.
  • Set Davis Cup scores – for example, Roddick to conquer Bjorkman by three sets to one.
  • A number of other variables such as the number of aces scored, how long the match will last and even the number of delays that will be caused by bad weather!

Davis Cup Betting Basics

Tennis is primarily an individual sport. This means that the punter does not have to worry about assessing team dynamics and managerial decisions, as in games like rugby or cricket. It is still important to find out each player’s strengths and weaknesses – some players perform better on clay than grass, for example. Although the better has to be aware of injuries and fitness, form in tennis is generally an excellent guide to future performance.

Tennis is played professionally all year round, both outdoors and indoors. The punter therefore has plenty of action to choose from.

Before placing a bet, track the 2009 Davis Cup odds carefully. Most major tournaments are shown live on TV and statistics and commentary about previous matches is readily available, giving the punter good information with which to make a bet.

It is important to note that not all the competitors in a tennis tournament may be listed. There is therefore a betting option known as a “field” bet. The field bet will include all the competitors not listed. “Field” punters gain an advantage by having more than one entrant who can win for them.
