Don’t Forget Bet365’s Tennis Accumulator Bonus For The 2017 French Open
While the world’s best are assured of their place in the event, for a number of players, their only route into the tournament is through a hugely competitive qualifying process. Once this is complete on Friday 26th May, then the tournament will begin in earnest with the first round kicking off on Sunday 28th May, with matches played every day until the Ladies final on the 10th June and the Men’s final on the 11th June.
Of course, you can enjoy a wide range of betting on both the qualifiers at Roland Garros, plus the other top ATP and WTA events taking place this week at Bet365 Sport and if you are a fan of tennis accumulator bets, then don’t forget that now is the perfect time to take full advantage of Bet365’s outstanding Tennis Accumulator Bonus.
What is Bet365’s Tennis Accumulator Bonus?
Bet365’s Tennis Accumulator Bonus is an additional cash sum you will win for successful accumulator bets placed on many top tennis tournaments that take place throughout the year for both men’s and women’s singles and doubles events. The bonus is calculated as a percentage of your total winnings and the percentage amount you win depends on how many selections comprise your successful bet.
There are a number of criteria you must follow in order for your bet to be accepted as part of this offer and the first of these are that your bet must comprise of two or more selections on any of the following markets:
- To Win Match
- First Set Winner
- Set Betting
In addition to this, the match you are betting on must be part of any of the following tennis tournaments:
- Any Grand Slam Tournament (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, US Open)
- Any ATP (Men’s) Tour Event
- Any WTA (Women’s) Tour Event
- Any Challenger Tour Event (Men & Women)*
- Davis Cup Singles & Doubles Matches
- Federations Cup Singles & Doubles Matches
- Hopman Cup Singles & Doubles Matches
* Challenger tour events are tier 2 events that are not part of the full professional tours and which features professionals not quite good enough to be full-time members of the main men’s and women’s tours.
Although this seems to be a relatively short list, it actually covers every major tennis tournament that takes place throughout the calendar year and means that you can access the Bet365 Tennis Accumulator Bonus almost every day of the year if you are a fan of this particular form of betting.
Once you have made your two or more selections from the markets outlined above and on qualifying tournaments, then you can sit back and watch the action unfold safe in the knowledge that should your bet win, you will be in line for a nice bonus payout. How much will that payout be? Well that depends on the size of your win and the number of selections you have made as part of your qualifying tennis accumulator bet.
The table below outline what the percentage payout is for successful double, treble and accumulator bets:
|Type of Bet||Bonus Applied|
How does the bonus work? This is best shown by means of an example. Let’s say you place a £10 10-fold accumulator bet that qualifies for the bonus. Your bet wins and generates winnings of £1,000. How much bonus would you get back?
Well a successful 10-fold bet generates a 40% bonus, which means that you would receive an additional £400 on top of your £1,000 winnings. Add your £10 stake return back onto that and that means you would take home a total return of £1410 instead of £1010.
Where can I watch the French Open tennis live?
Part of the fun when you place an accumulator bet is keeping abreast of how your selections are doing and now that is easier than ever to do thanks to the extensive tennis live streaming service offered by Bet365 Sport.
Tennis is one of the most commonly streamed sports on Bet365 and for the duration of the French Open that will not change with extensive coverage across every single court at Roland Garros throughout the two weeks of the main tournament. This means you’ll be able to log in to your Bet365 account and keep up to date on all the action free of charge, every day of the tournament. Unfortunately, live streaming of this event is not available in France, the United States and Singapore however.
French Open 2017 – Men’s Preview and Tips
Of course, there’s more options to bet on than simply the Tennis Accumulator Bonus at the French Open this year and it is already shaping up to be an intriguing tournament. It seems likely that the men’s winner will come from the usual crop of suspects, albeit with one notable absence.
Roger Federer’s surprise decision to pull out of the French Open this year to focus on Wimbledon and the US Open may rob fans of seeing the Swiss star in action, but it has been labelled a smart move by several top players, including Novak Djokovic. Rafael Nadal, a nine-time winner at the French Open is the man to beat having been in sensational form on clay winning three tournaments in a row.
However at the Italian Open he was defeated by an inspired Dominic Thiem, who is now rated as a 9/1 shot to win the event, the same price as current World Number 1, the out-of-sorts Andy Murray who is struggling to find form. Nadal is currently 4/5 with Bet365 to win the event with Novak Djokovic rated as a 3/1 second favourite.
Outsiders with a decent chance include former champion Stan Wawrinka (12/1), Alexander Zverev (16/1) plus two 33/1 shots Kei Nishikori and Nick Kyrgios.
However, for the winner of this event it is very difficult to see past Rafael Nadal once again, his exit at the Italian Open may have been a blessing in disguise, allowing the Spaniard several days more rest as he seeks to win his 10th French Open title.
French Open 2017 – Women’s Preview and Tips
With Serena Williams on an enforced break through pregnancy, the race to succeed Spanish ace Garbine Muguruza as the next Women’s Champion at Roland Garros is wide open. In an event that has often provided us with some surprise winners (as well as Muguruza, Li Na won in 2011 and Francesca Schiavone was a surprise winner in 2010) there could be a surprise name on the trophy come Saturday 10th June.
Bet365 have Simona Halep as the 10/3 favourite for the event, with the talented Romanian in good form, although she did lose the Italian Open final to Elina Svitolina in the run up to the event, with the Ukranian ranked as the 7/1 second favourite to take the French Open title.
You can back the 2016 winner Garbine Muguruza at 10/1, with Svetlana Kuznetsova a 14/1 shot and the current World Number 1 Angelique Kerber a 16/1 chance alongside Karolina Pliskova and Kristina Mladenovic. British ace Johanna Konta is rated a 28/1 shot alongside Caroline Wozniacki, Laura Siegemund and Daria Kasatkina.
The women’s event this year is arguably the most open for years and who knows it could be the time for another big upset, so our tip here is to back the in form Elina Svitolina to make it a clay court double.
