Australian Open: Betting Offers

Australian Open Tennis

Get ready for a few late nights; the Australian Open is on its way. Thanks to 24 hour TV, the Australian Open has become very popular in the UK despite the time difference.

It's also a great way to take advantage of the free bets that bookies offer new members.

In recent years, online bookies have reported a massive increase in Australian Open tennis betting and in turn now offer more tennis betting offers than ever before.

Best Australian Open Free Bets

The Australian Open is one of the four Grand Slam tennis tournaments that forms part of the most prestigious sports betting events on the tennis calendar.

Players travel from around the world to contest each of these major tournaments, providing punters with plenty of opportunities to use the free bets that bookies offer.

Together with the Australian Open the other three Grand Slams are: The French Open, The US Open, and of course our very own Wimbledon which is also the only tournament currently played on grass.

With Melbourne Park hosting the first tennis Grand Slam of the year in January, now is the time to consider who you might place some of those free bets on. There’s certainly plenty to bet on.

It’s the first tennis betting event of the year for punters to use the tennis betting offers that bookies have started to offer and there certainly are plenty to choose from.

You can also use free bet offers on some of the other Open tennis betting markets, such as match betting or live sports betting on the outcome of each set as it play out on TV.

Bookies Australian Open Favourites

Previous winners of the Australian Open tennis tournament are well fancied by bookies, with very few upsets in recent years. This makes it much easier to maximise your free bet winnings when betting on tennis as the favourites usually come good.

Andre Agassi and the current Tennis Grand Slam record holder, Roger Federer, are the most successful Australian Open male winners of all time with four singles titles each; and Serena Williams remains the most successful female in Australian Open history with five wins.

With Federer seeded number three he’s still up there with the leaders – Serbian Djokovic is seeded one, Nadal of Spain two, and every Britain’s golden hope, Murray, number four.

Bookies are offering odds that unsurprisingly reflect this, although many see Olympic gold medal winner Murray as a good punt for Australian Open betting promotions currently available.

2012 finalist Rafael Nadal will have to be sure that he’s overcome his leg injury if he’s to play at his best, and some remain worried that he may not play at all.

In the women’s tennis, it’s Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, Czech Petra Kvitova, Victoria Azarenka of Belarus, and Russian Maria Sharapova who look set to set the pace and attract a lot of attention from punters eager to make a profit using the free bet offers they claim.

Whether you’re a tennis betting fan or not, the Australian Open is bound to be an exciting competition, taking place between 14-17 Jan 2013 with a number of tournaments, which start on the 29th December, in the run up to it.

With all this tennis action going on you’d be crazy to pass on all the free tennis bets from Australian bookies aimed at Australian Open tennis betting markets.

To make it even more interesting they’ve increased the prize money by £2.6 million to an incredible £19.5 million this year. So with all that money to play for it looks like being a hard fought thing on the hard courts of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia.

So up your game and serve up a few free bet offers - with moneyback offers, deposit bonuses and other ace free betting online bookie deals, it could be game, set and match for tennis betting fans in the Australian Open this coming new year!
