Australian Open bookie bonuses & betting tips

Best betting markets for the Australian Open

The most popular betting markets for the Australian Open, or any other tennis Grand Slam, include the outright winner, who will face off in the final, head-to-head betting throughout the tournament, handicap betting, set and game betting for individual matches, and special markets such as total games played and total Aces.

Some bookies will offer a cash out option for many tennis betting options, allowing the punter to decide to pull out of their wager early while their bets are live (whether it be a straight wager or a multi wager).

For example, if you placed a $10 bet on Roger Federer to win the Australian Open at $15 odds before the start of the tournament, and he had made it all the way through to the semi finals, however he was nursing an ankle injury, you might be tempted to cash out – and the cash out value could be $100, so rather than wait to see if he wins the final two matches, you could choose to make a $90 profit beforehand.

Conversely, you might have placed a $20 wager on Nick Kyrgios to beat Andy Murray 7–5 in the first set of the Aussie Open, however Murray is currently winning the set 5-3. Kyrgios to win 7–5 is not looking great, so you might be tempted to cash out with a value that could be around $7.70, thus losing $12.30 instead of (most likely) losing the entire $20 bet.
