How to bet on French Open odds

Tennis betting is most commonly done with moneyline odds for a match. Each player is assigned a moneyline price and bettors can wager on which one they think will win. Sportsbooks also offer futures odds for each tournament, where you can bet on which player will win that specific tournament. 

Tennis futures odds usually look like this:

  • Player A +600

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $600 if Player A wins the tournament. If it's close to the end of a tournament or one player has been particularly dominant, you might see someone with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds:

  • Player B -120

This means that you would need to wager $120 to win $100 on Player B winning the tournament.
