Bet on the Australian Open Winners, AFCON, and European Handball FinalistsPublished January 29, 2022 by Florin P
Nadal and Barty go for another Grand Slam trophy at the Australian Open, while the AFCON semifinalists will be decided this weekend.
The time has come to learn the names of the Australian Open winners in the men’s and women’s tournaments. This week, the finalists of the European Handball Championship will be decided at the end of an amazing event. Football fans have their hands full with the AFCON quarterfinals and everyone can bet on these highly anticipated matches at bet365 Sports and 1Xbet.
Rafael Nadal and Ashley Barty aim for another Trophy
The Spanish champion will try to take the solitary lead with 21 Grand Slam trophies at the Australian Open. For the first time this tournament he will start with the second chance against Daniil Medvedev. Both were dominant throughout the tournament and dropped an average of one set per match. Rafael Nadal has the advantage in head-to-head victories, but Medvedev won the last encounter. He starts as the favorite with odds of 1/2 at 1Xbet, while those who bet on Nadal will enjoy odds of 3/2.
In the women’s tournament, Ashley Barty is credited with the first chance and odds of only 1/5 at the same bookmaker. She was remarkable throughout the tournament and won six games in a row without dropping a set. Danielle Collins greatly improved her performance throughout the championship but is the obvious underdog with odds of 4/1. She lost three of the four head-to-head matches but the silver lining is that she won the last time in Adelaide.
Denmark and France Favorites in Handball Semifinals
Denmark showed no signs of weakness throughout the event and only lost the last match against France. At the time, there were no incentives to throw everything they’ve got at the competition. Now they are highly motivated to defeat Spain and odds of 1/5 offered by bet365 Sports highlight their favorite status. In the other semifinal, France hopes to carry momentum into the decisive run and convert the odds of 1/2 against Sweden. The Scandinavian nation is priced at 5/2 to cause an upset while the draw gets odds of 8/1. Given the high number of games that were decided by a narrow margin, the draw looks appealing.
Cameroon and Senegal likely to Reach the AFCON Final
Cameroon plays against Gambia in the first quarter-finals scheduled for Saturday and Senegal takes on Equatorial Guinea on Sunday. Both are expected to advance to the semi-finals, against defensive-minded teams. 1Xbet offers similar odds of 1/2 on both to win in regulation time while pricing an upset at 8/1.
Morocco and Tunisia are expected to have a much more difficult mission against Burkina Faso and Egypt. Both get odds of 3/2 to prevail in regulation time, while the underdogs get 27/10 at 1Xbet. What is interesting about these matches is that bookmakers suggest a high likelihood for a draw. If you bet on the match to end undecided, you will be paid at odds of 16/10 on both occasions which is not common.
