Action-Packed Weekend Begins for Basketball, Tennis, and Esports Fans

Tennis fans can bet on the Wimbledon matches, while basketball enthusiasts are invited to wager on World Cup qualification games in the second half of the week.

Football is in recess and there isn’t much action for fans of the beautiful sport, but there are other things worth considering for the weekend. 1xBet and bet365 sports have a massive selection of sports and among the obvious betting options are basketball, tennis, and Esports. Major events are scheduled in the opening days of July and the aforesaid bookmakers offer competitive odds pregame, live and ante-post.

Serbia and Croatia Kick Start World Cup Qualification

Countries from the former Yugoslavia are known for their basketball quality and they have the chance to showcase those skills in the World Cup qualification stage. Croatia and Slovenia play the opening match on June 30 and the former are big underdogs with odds of 4/1. Betting on Slovenia to win will only deliver odds of 1/5 at bet365 sports, so punters should consider spread betting.

Serbia is a force to be reckoned with in basketball and the team should be more than a match for Latvia. The Baltic nation is also a strong challenger, as reflected by the odds of 2/1. Having said this, Serbia is the better team and should be able to convert the odds of 3/5 to win in regulation time. An accumulator with Serbia and Slovenia on the same betting slip makes a lot of sense for risk-averse punters.

Sinner and Alcaraz Keep Hope Alive for NextGen Players

Djokovic and Nadal are the firm favorites to win Wimbledon and new players can challenge them at this stage. Young contenders such as Sinner and Alcaraz lack the consistency to make deep runs in Grand Slam tournaments but are still in the race on the London grass. Sinner squares off with John Isner, so this is going to be a match with plenty of aces and very likely several tie-breaks.

Sinner is the better player of the two, but he lacks the experience and will have a hard time dealing with an avalanche of aces served by the American. Punters get odds of 3/5 on the Italians and 3/2 on John Isner, in a game that could well go either way. Alcaraz was on the verge of elimination in the opening round, but is playing much better and is the favorite against Oscar Otte with odds of 3/10 as opposed to 5/2 at 1xBet.

The Best Chinese LoL Teams Play this Weekend in the LPL

The Chinese LPL is arguably the strongest League of Legends region and some of its best teams are scheduled to play this weekend. LNG and LGD might have similar names but there is a chasm separating the two teams. LNG has Doinb in mid-lane and he’s a force to be reckoned with against any opponent. We expect them to defeat LGD 2-0 and close the gap separating them from the LPL leaders.

JDG vs FunPlus Phoenix might look like a David versus Goliath story, as they sit at the top and bottom of the standings. FunPlus Phoenix has played beautifully in the last game and if they can carry the momentum on Sunday, should be able to win at least one match. The highlight of the weekend is the game between Weibo and Top Esports, as they aim for a victory to propel them to the top of the LPL standings.
