We may all have played table tennis at least once, but the same certainly cannot be said about online betting on this discipline which, at least, cannot be defined as mass market.
Winning Head to Head
This market is similar to that of many individual competitions, such as tennis. Quite simply, it is about guessing the winner of the match. There can be variations, relating to the winner of one set, usually the first. Of course, there is also the possibility of an antepost bet on the winner of a particular tournament.
Total Match Points
This market consists of predicting the total number of points won in a match. It is, in fact, similar to the Under/Over of many other sports, where the threshold is usually 55.5 points.
- Example: Let’s take the case of a match between Freitas and Mizutani, two strong table tennis players of today, and bet an Over 55.5. The match ends 11-8, 11-8, 11-8: the total is 57 and the bet wins. If on the other hand the match ends 11-5, 11-5, 11-7, the sum would be 50 and the bet would lose.
- Example: Choosing this type of market, even though it may be familiar to bettors who have already bet on other sports, naturally requires a bit of expertise: you need to know which of the two athletes is stronger, and how direct matches between the two have gone before, to understand whether they are close matches or not, as well as of course knowing their state of form.
Handicap – Games
In this type of bet you must predict the number of sets won by each player after applying the handicap. The handicap varies from match to match and is equivalent to the number of sets advantage given to the underdog player. The underdog receives a positive handicap, while the favourite receives a negative one.
Best of the group
This type of market consists of guessing which athlete will be the best in a given event chosen by the bookmaker. For example, a shortlist of four names can be provided from which to choose the one who will be ranked best in the Moscow Pro League. Of course, this market is mainly intended for fans of the discipline, who know its protagonists very well.
Tennis betting live, with or without streaming
The best volleyball betting sites know very well that this sport particularly lends itself to the speed and adrenaline rush of live betting. A break of serve is all it takes for a match to turn on its head. The number of markets for in-play betting remains essentially the same as for pre-match betting.
Table tennis doesn’t have as many markets as basketball. An additional weapon for the bettor is the live streaming service, which is offered by several online bookmakers and allows the player to watch the event on which he is betting on live table tennis.
