Anyone else like betting Ping Pong?!?!?!

14 replies • Last post

I've found ping pong to be a fun sport to bet as the odds are usually pretty juicy. It seems like I can get a player +300-500 a fair amount and they end up winning. It also feels like there are a lot of spots down 0-1 or 0-2 where players come back to win 3-2. It's interesting! I was curious if anyone else shares the same liking.

I had no idea that betting on ping pong was a thing. That's interesting. I imagine that could be a fast series of bets.

Yeah it's fun. It's referred to as Table Tennis on most sites. They play best 3 of 5 to 11. It's intense to follow!

Yeah...exactly what I've been thinking as well...I guess every sport could be betable (if that's world anywayπŸ˜‚) if you're really up for it and have some knowledge about it ...never consider betting on table tennis but hey...you can't be too picky these days...πŸ˜‰

I've never bet on it but I like watching it. The players are incredible, standing metres back from the table smashing the ball back and forth with such power and accuracy.

Yeah it's awesome! I've actually been able to study it a bit and pick up on some trends and players, seems to pan out more often than not

Yeah, it's quite entertaining sport when you're watching the pros, have been playing a lot when I was a kid but not at any decent level of course.

I never knew it was a thing. But I guess it shouldn't really be surprising since it is kind of a sport?

A former Australian table tennis champion was arrested late last year for betting on games using his inside knowledge. Interesting read - Bets, lies and table tennis: How police pinged an international pong.

Very interesting, I was always fascinated about this kind of stories.
I know it's not about table tennis, but it's still funny: did you ever heard about the 'tennis player' Artem Bahmet? πŸ˜€
Just search his name on google, or you can find the story here:

Oh my that is classic. I used to play competitive tournament tennis as a teenager and I really honestly am far better than that guy, even now. I need to find out how much it costs to enter one of those tournaments! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I like how the real player was being nice and just rallying back and forth with him until he made a mistake. That was very kind.

It reminds me of the old days in the Olympics where there would be swimmers from land-locked countries who nearly drowned.

Wow...have been touching a tennis racket a couple of times in my lie but if that guy is a pro...well I could be tooπŸ˜‰

Surely he has to do that just for fun...but what kind of fun is exactly thatπŸ€”...except for us of course...πŸ™‚
