The best sites for tennis wagers are 5 Dimes and Matchbook. Most of your wagers will be at those books. However, you will occasionally have the best line at the Greek, Bookmaker, Sports Interaction and Bodog...and I mean ONLY occasionally because those books are usually taking 30-40 cents rips--not good for your bankroll. One other problem with the latter 4 books mentioned is that they require two sets or completed matches, and frequently your picks could be predicated on an injury or the potential of a retirement. Both 5D and Matchbook require only 1 set. Also, it is a very good to spread around, particularly with SI and Bodog, because you will get heat if you start winning--which, by the way, also happens with 5 Dimes. Matchbook could have liquidity issues, especially with the 250's and 500's. However, with all that said, you should not under any illusions as your profits will be suboptimal without Pinnacle and Betfair (and a variety of UK books that are forbidden from taking any US customers). And I do not seeing this changing anytime soon with the new political environment. Hell, more than 50% of the newly elected members to Congress believe that global warming does not even exist and the party in power in the House is still under the illusion that "guns don't kill people, people kill people." Yea right. Do you think that they could even put 2 and 2 together and determine that having sports betting onshore in the US would create much need tax revenue?
