WTA tennis betting: Ontario vs. the rest of Canada
Canada recently legalized single-event betting. Market regulation however, comes at the provincial level. In 2022, Ontario opened their regulated market to licensed sportsbook operators. However, nothing has changed for other Canadian provinces. People across the country may legally bet on WTA matches at lottery corporation-owned betting sites, or at a seemingly endless array of "offshore" sportsbooks. Many of these however are unfortunately highly dishonest, risky options.
This leaves two distinct markets within Canada for tennis betting: Ontario, and the "rest of Canada". If you are in Ontario and you want to bet on WTA tennis matches, above our match odds, we highlight our top-rated legal Ontario sportsbooks. If you are outside Ontario, above the match odds, we display our top-rated "offshore" sportsbooks for the rest of Canada.
All the "rest of Canada" brands that we recommend have their licenses to serve Ontario, denoting a higher level of reputation, just know that you will play on their offshore versions. For example, if you are in Ontario, you would play at Betway Ontario. If you are anywhere else in the country, you would play at Betway Canada, which is based in Malta - their "grey market" jurisdiction.
Above, our aggregation service provider is set to display the highest odds for the most popular betting markets for each WTA tennis match, which includes those for all the Women's major tournaments of the Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon and the US Open. By always showing the highest odds across several sportsbooks, you thus might see slightly differing handicap lines as associated to the odds. The sportsbook with the highest odds for one side of a bet will not usually also have the highest odds on other side of the bet. This explains why the game handicap or total games lines may not be identical on either side of the wager.
Our WTA odds come from different providers within the Canadian "grey market" and the Ontario legal market context. This is why our odds will look better on the whole compared to any individual betting brand. If you just want to get a WTA wager down, you only need a single betting account. However, if you want to get the best price on your Women's tennis bets in order to maximize your potential returns, you may want to have accounts at several providers, and spend a little time on WTA odds comparison. We also provide this service for the main Women's tennis futures markets, including Ladies Wimbledon odds, Women's US Open odds as well as the other two Women's tennis majors.
WTA Women's Tennis presents exciting betting opportunities, and it's important to understand the different betting markets to make informed wagers. In WTA Women's Tennis, you can explore three main betting markets: Moneyline, Point Spread (game handicap), and Total (game total). Let's explore each of these markets and how they apply to Women's Tennis. This page uses Decimal odds format. If you'd prefer American odds format, please visit the odds provider shown above as they offer all three main odds formats.
Moneyline betting in WTA Women's Tennis involves predicting the outright winner of a match. The odds for Moneyline bets are typically displayed in decimal format. Here's an example:
If you place a bet of 100 units on Ashleigh Barty at odds of 1.75 and she emerges as the winner, your total payout would amount to 175 units, including your initial stake. Similarly, a 100-unit bet on Naomi Osaka at odds of 2.10 would result in a total payout of 210 units if she wins the match.
Point Spread betting in WTA Women's Tennis involves handicapping players by assigning a game handicap to create a balanced betting market. The odds for Point Spread bets are commonly presented in decimal format. Here's an example:
If you bet on Ashleigh Barty at -4.5 games and she wins the match with a game margin of 5 or more, your bet would be successful with a payout of 185 units for a 100-unit wager. Conversely, if you bet on Naomi Osaka at +4.5 games, she can win the match outright or lose by 4 games or fewer for your bet to win.
Total Betting (Game Total) in WTA Women's Tennis:
Total betting in WTA Women's Tennis involves wagering on the total number of games played in a match. The sportsbook sets a benchmark number, and you bet on whether the actual number of games will be over or under that total. The odds for Total bets are usually presented in decimal format. Here's an example:
If you believe the total number of games will be higher than 20.5, you would bet on the Over. If the actual number of games played is 21 or more, your bet would be successful with a payout of 190 units for a 100-unit wager. Conversely, if you anticipate a lower-scoring match, you would bet on the Under, hoping for a total of 20 games or fewer.
