Badminton Betting Odds
Unlike many racquet sports, badminton does not use a ball: badminton uses a feathered projectile called a shuttlecock. Competitive badminton is always played indoors because wind or air resistance strongly affects the shuttlecock.
The shuttlecock often travels across the court at speeds of over 200 miles per hour in professional badminton competitions. Make sports bets online with bwin.
The major badminton competitions are the World Championships which will be held in 2022 in Tokyo and the Olympic Games. China is, by far, the most successful country in badminton championships, ahead of Indonesia and South Korea. Make bets on the South Korea badminton tournament with bwin.
The high frequency and intensity of play throughout a match, as well as the high average maximum and minimum heart rates, indicate that badminton is a sport that at the competitive level requires a high percentage of individual aerobic power.
Betting on the BWF World Tour
The BWF World Tour is a series of Grade 2 badminton tournaments run by the Badminton World Federation (BWF). It is a competition open to the best players in the world ranking in singles (men and women) and doubles (men, women and mixed).
The badminton season runs from January to November, with the 31 tournaments divided into six levels — Super 1000 (three tournaments), Super 750 (five tournaments), Super 500 (seven tournaments), Super 300 (eleven tournaments) and Super 100 (five tournaments). Each of these tournaments has different ranking points and prize money up for grabs.
The BWF tour ends every year in December with a Masters tournament where only the top eight singles and top eight pairs of the BWF World Tour ranking in each discipline can participate.
Recommended betting in badminton
Most major badminton tournaments operate on a knockout format except for the Olympic Games and the BWF Tour Finals. A recommended bet on badminton is to make live bets during the match.
