So I am finally getting into online betting(and betting inn general, well at least "official" betting) I have a few questions to ask.

1. Best site to bet on tennis? I have an account with betfair and bet365, because of the free streams but dont know which one is better to bet(im open to other suggestions), I also want to bet in Basketball and a bit of football and betfair seemed imo to be better for basketball betting.

2. Is moneyline or odds betting better?

just that for now thanks

haha. I second BG's motion.

1. Betfair is good and generally has the best odds. Only problem is that the markets there take a long time to settle down on mickey mouse matches so it can be hard to get a bet on early. You should have an account at a fixed odds book as well to take advantage of early prices. Pinnacle is good for tennis too, best odds apart from the exchanges, and I think it's generally regarded as one of the best for US Sports so it would probably suit you.

2. It's a bit of a cliche but value is the key. I don't think one is necessarily better than the other. Neither bet365 not betfair is any good for moneylines though. That's Yank for handicaps right?

I combine Unibet, Betfair, Gamebookers and Fonbet (the latter one can give you trouble with limitations on your stake though..after a winning streak the max is 40euro per bet or something). I like handicap betting better than match betting usually. For match betting I use betfair, for handicaps gamebookers/fonbet and for combo's and special bets unibet.

1. Best fixed odds books IMO for the combination you refer to above being tennis, basketball and football are pinnacle and centrebet. Without knowing what your stake amounts are you will generally not have a problem with limits with these 2 books. 5dimes are good if you want to bet options such as handicap betting or over/under games betting for tennis.

2. Not sure what you mean here – money line betting means you bet on Player A to beat Player B. What is odds betting? Or are you referring to handicap betting in this instance?

My advice is find out which assclown players are still accepting money to lose.

In all seriousness, Pinnacle is great, no need for any other tennis betting book.

My advice above anything else is if you are on a bad run, walk away, assess the situation (e.g. are you betting on the wrong sort of matches, bad staking, chasing your losses etc..) then come back feeling refreshed and ready to win some more money.

I have been guilty in the past of not walking away and tennis betting unlike a lot of other sports can be very cruel at times and when you are on a bad run every 50-50 match will go against you.
