The 2018 Australian Open tennis tournament runs from January 15 – January 28 in Melbourne, Australia. The event is significant because it is the first tennis grand slam of the year, it is also significant for the Australian bookmakers who will be clamouring over each other to offer Australian punters the best offers in a bid to entice wagering on the event.

We’re going to take a look at how best to approach betting on the Australian Open in order to maximise value. Please note that all of the promotions on this page are not available in NSW, you can ready why that is here.

Tournament odds betting with Betfair

If you intend to place a bet on the tournament winners market, by far the best value is offered by the betting exchange Betfair. This is especially the case for players at longer odds. One example is outsider Marin Cilic, with any online agency, the best odds you will find before the tournament starts is $29. However, on the betting exchange he is listed at $41.

The ability to lay off with Betfair on futures markets

The other significant benefit of betting on an exchange like Betfair for the tennis tournament markets, is the ability to lay off your bet after your players price comes in. For example, if you like a player at long odds to win the event and you back them at say $15, you can then lay off that price at $10 after they win a couple of matches and earn a risk free bet to nothing at odds of $5. Visit Betfair to view the latest Australian Open odds.

More free bet offers

Of course, you could qualify for a bonus bet independent of the tennis by signing up for a new account with a new bookmaker. The free bet from the new bookie could then be used to place on a tennis market, perhaps even offset the free bet from BetEasy?

Summarising the bookmaker offers

The bottom line is, there are many bookmaker promotions on the Australian Open tennis tournament. If you’re going to have a bet, it’s worth sifting through the promotions to see who is offering what. You might earn yourself a free bonus bet or benefit from a refund offer or a winning bet at great odds.

Grand Final Preview

What a season of AFL football we have enjoyed so far! The Western Bulldogs narrowly claimed victory over Greater Western Sydney to advance to their first AFL Grand Final in 55 years. It’s a different story for the finals hardened Swans. This will be their third grand final appearance in the last 5 years.

In what has been a very tight season, Sydney finished on top of the AFL ladder and have arguably been the best team all year. They unexpectedly dropped their first finals match to GWS, but have since enjoyed resounding victories over Adelaide and Geelong. The Bulldogs have come from 7th spot, defeating West Coast Eagles in Perth, Hawthorn and GWS. They have overcome all sorts of adversity throughout the season, primarily injuries to key players.

If the Dogs were to get up, it would certainly complete the fairytale, and no neutral supporter would be disappointed. However, they remain slight outsiders, the Swans midfield and finals experience will count for plenty.

Selection: Sydney by 23 points
