How to Bet on Table Tennis - Table Tennis Betting Guide, Tips & Strategies
Table tennis might not be the most popular sport in the world, but it sure is exciting and fast-paced.
You can place a range of bets on the most compelling table tennis action at Stake.com throughout the season, whether on Russian table tennis in Liga Pro or the action in the internationally-acclaimed TT Elite Series.
What are the Rules of Table Tennis Rules & Gameplay?
In table tennis, the objective of the game is to hit the ball over the net to your opponent's side of the table, hoping that they can't return the ball. You win a point when the ball bounces on their side of the table, and they fail to return it.
The server changes every two points, and the ball must bounce once on both sides of the table for the service to be legal. If the ball touches the net on its way over to the other side of the table, a "let" is called, and the serve is repeated.
In table tennis competitions, the winner is the first player to eleven points, with one point awarded per winning shot. If the scores are tied at 10-10, the game continues until one player has a two-point lead.
What's more, most matches are played the best of 3, 5, or 7 games, depending on the tournament format.

Most Popular Table Tennis Betting Markets & Types of Table Tennis Bets
There are several different bets that you can place on the biggest table tennis matches and events in the world, including the following:
Moneyline: A moneyline bet is a straightforward bet on the player you think will win a specific table tennis fixture.
Handicap: This is also a bet on a player to win a match. However, the favourite has a handicap applied in the form of a points deficit that they must overcome for your bet to win.
Outright: This is a wager on the player you think will win a specific tournament – such as the TT Cup.
Prop: Prop bets are wagers that aren't tied to the end result of a table tennis match. So, for instance, it could be a bet on the number of aces in a match. You can also place player prop bets, which involves betting on specific instances to occur on individual table tennis players.
Over/Under: Also known as totals bets, over/under bets on table tennis enable you to bet on how many points will be scored in a match, over or under the line set by us.
Parlay: A popular table tennis bet, a parlay wager enables you to bet on more than one outcome on the same slip. For instance, you might pick three players in the Setka Cup to win their respective matches. Similarly, you can use our 'Bet Builder' function to place same game multi bets and place multiple selections on the single betting slip within the same event.
