Get the best Australian Open odds and enjoy live streaming
The first Grand Slam tennis tournament of the year takes place Down Under, with the Australian Open taking place at Melbourne Park in front of packed crowds and it’s the first time that tennis punters will come out in force to place some bets.
Thanks to the Rod Laver Arena and the Hisense Arena having retractable roofs, there is always play on these primary courts even during spells of wet weather or extreme heat, something which is great for customers wanting to bet In-Play on the Aussie Open or watch live streaming of a particular match.
Novak Djokovic the king of Australia
Djokovic might be proudly Serbian, although the world number one clearly loves this Grand Slam more than the others, having won the 2008 men’s singles title to break his major duck. Since then, he has claimed the championship in 2011, 2012 and 2013, with several years to continue this dominance following on from Roger Federer’s four Australian Open titles.
Backers of Djokovic have made plenty of money from the Serbian winning a hat-trick of recent titles, defeating Andy Murray in two of the finals, while his epic victory against Rafael Nadal in 2012 saw In-Play tennis betting records smashed as the game lasted several hours before the Serbian won in five sets.
Serbia’s Novak Djokovic addresses a press conference after victory in his men’s singles final against Britain’s Andy Murray on day fourteen of the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne early on January 28, 2013.
In-Play betting on the Aussie Open is exciting
In the 2012 Australian Open men’s singles final, Nadal took the first set and was installed as the In-Play favourite, before Djokovic claimed the second and third set to go odds-on with the bookies. In the fourth set, the Spaniard claimed a tie-break victory and led in the fifth which made him favourite again. Some shrewd punters were able to get big odds about both players during the final and enjoy a profit whoever came out on top.
We have all seen tennis matches take several twists and turns, so it often pays to back the In-Play outsider, especially if you feel that they can work their way back into the match. Several bookmakers now offer live wagering for virtually every match of a Grand Slam tournament including the Australian Open which is a great way of making money.
Enjoy live streaming of Australian Open matches
This Grand Slam event was the first to be live streamed by the bookmakers, with firms like bet365 securing the rights to this prestigious tournament which means that customers can simply log into their account and watch the latest action from the show courts.
It’s great to be able to watch the live streaming on your PC, especially if you don’t have the correct TV channel when it comes to watching the tennis, while you can also keep tabs and place bet on the In-Play odds as you enjoy the live streaming.
Look out for the bookmakers being generous!
Not only can you enjoy live streaming with several bookmakers, but there is also the chance to take advantage of several promotions if you’re registered with firms such as bet365, BetVictor and Paddy Power.
You might find a few price boosts available on a daily basis, while a bookmaker such as Coral have introduced enhanced accumulators which mean bigger odds if you fancy a particular trio to win their encounters.
