Does anyone know of any bookmakers that offer tournament odds on Challenger events? I know bet365> offer a comprehensive selection on individual matches but I've yet to see any tournament odds
That's a superb question, I have been backing challenger tennis for a couple years & 2 weeks ago I saw 1 firm have outright betting for an event but that was the first time i'd ever seen it , I was in shock.

I guess the betting community betting on challenger tennis is small but betting is growing in this every minute, a year ago , a lot of bookmakers didn't offer odds on challenger tennis but now they all do.

I expect you will see outright betting come in the future whether it's 6 months from now I don't know but as I say I saw 1 firm put up outright betting there a couple of weeks , Coral I think it was but don't quote me on that.

Challenger matches

I'd just be happy to find a website forum that discusses individual Challenger matches, with strong conviction picks put up.

A very strong lineup at the $125k Challenger in Irving as the world no.34 Jeremy Chardy is the top seed and the 8 seeds all ranked inside the top 65.

Kyle Edmund has qualified for the event whilst James Ward also represents the Brits in the main draw.

Coral/SkyBet have outright betting for the 125k challenger at Irving this week. There is a serious field there this week.

Superb stuff from Kyle Edmund. Qualifying for the event and recording two Top 100 wins. Jeremy Chardy or James Ward's conqueror Steve Darcis next for the Brit who will surely become the British no.2 at some point in 2015
I wouldn't bet on that but Edmund has had a better season so far, Ward has only 58 points so far this season while Edmund has 160+. I think Ward is at his best on the grass so we'll see how his grass court season is & then re-access.

Sarasota Challenger sees the return of radek staphanek.


1st round match;
Smyczek to beat Arguello , 13/10 Betfair. Smyczek is number 1 seed & you would expect him to be favourite for his first round against clay court specialist Arguello. I think smyczek will be too strong and should be 4/6 favourite.

Don't think there's a chance of Edmund becoming British no.2 now that Aljaz Bedene has changed his nationality.

Interesting to see Edmund play the lowest ranked Challenger event this week rather than try to qualify for Barcelona or Bucharest. Perhaps feeling that his best chance of getting more match practice on the clay will come on the Challengers as he'll have to qualify for the French Open

I could Edmund breaking the top 100 in the next 5/6 weeks , he's improving every minute. He just got a new sponsor is the name of Nike so I think they expect a big future too.

Today is his 5th QF appearance from 5 Challenger events this year. Consistent stuff.

For those interested in tennis away from the betting side, there is a superb article on the ATP website about the Challenger Tour and balancing the need for ranking points & match practice

Kyle Edmund made it 6 QF appearances from 6 Challenger events this year and his strategy to hit the lower grade events on the European clay could well pay big dividends when French Open qualifying starts in a couple of weeks.

After six events last week, we have another five to enjoy on three continents and with the top men in Madrid for the masters, some of them have pretty decent fields.

Busan hosts a $100k event with seven top 100 players and Brit Edward Corrie is in the main draw.

Italy hosts it's third $42.5k event in as many weeks and Kyle Edmund is seeded 4th in this one with adopted Brit Aljaz Bedene the top seed.

My one to watch this week is Aussie Sam Groth who is seeded two in Busan. He won in Taiwan this week and I think he's stuck in that no-mans lands where he's probably not quite good enough to win regularly on the main tour but he's too good to be playing week in week out on the challenger tour.
With his big serve, I think he could be one that everyone wants to avoid when Wimbledon comes around
