Head to head bets

The promotions on offer for the 2018 Aussie Open predominantly involve head to head bets. Whether it be a single head to head bet, or a combination of them in the form of a multi bet. The best value promotion is Palmerbet's offer, where they will refund your bet if your player wins the first set.

Pro's tip

The second offer of significance is William Hill's 'Chase the Ace' promotion. This is a fun way to earn a $10 bonus bet on any given match. The trick here is to look for big serving players that hit a high volumes of aces. In the early rounds, you can place a bet on heavily one-sided matches yet still be eligible for the maximum $10 bonus.
