Bet on the NHL Stanley Final and Tennis ATP and WTA Grass Tournaments this WeekendPublished June 17, 2022 by Florin P
The grass tennis tournaments in England and Germany set the stage for Wimbledon, while the best NHL teams play the decisive matches for the Stanley Cup.
Football fans have a weekend off as domestic championships are on break and the Nations League is on recess. The action doesn’t stop from Friday to Sunday, as Edmonton faces Colorado in the Stanley Cup final and the first grass tournaments are underway in England and Germany. You can bet on these prominent events at 1xBet and bet365 sports pregame and live to enjoy competitive odds.
Even Odds on Colorado to Defeat Edmonton in Game 2
Colorado needed overtime to deal with Edmonton, but took an early lead in the best-of-seven series. The Avalanche is the best team in the NHL this season and was able to carry that momentum to the playoffs. In the second match of the series, they have a home pitch advantage and 1xBet offers even odds on them to double their lead. Edmonton put up a good fight in the opening round and scored three goals, so odds of 2/1 on them to win on the road look tempting. We still like Colorado best and expect a high-scoring match, so risk-averse punters should consider a Moneyline bet on the home side.
Kyrgios and Berrettini are on Course for the Semifinals
Halle and London host two of the early tournaments on grass and some of the best players in the world are missing. Kyrgios and Berrettini have attended and so far they meet expectations to steadily advance towards the semi-finals. The mercurial Australian has alternated impressive displays of skill with disappointing moments of frustration. He’s expected to outplay veteran Carreno Busta, as reflected by the odds of 7/20 offered by 1xBet.
Berrettini lost the first match against Tommy Paul as he dealt with injury concerns, something that still plagues him today. Having said this, the Italian is playing at a high level and showcased his quality on the London grass. He recently dropped a set, but he did so on three occasions last week in Germany and still won the tournament. The odds of 7/20 on him to win are far from tempting, but they reflect the difference between the two players. If Tommy Paul causes an upset, punters who back he will be paid at 5/2.
Fading Halep and Pliskova Seek Redemption on Grass
Halep and Pliskova are two former world number one players, but both are fading in the standings. The Romanian plays in the quarterfinals of the Birmingham tournament and is a huge favorite to advance to the semi-finals. She needs to defeat Katie Boulder in the pair’s first meeting and she looks well capable of doing that. bet365 sports prices this outcome at 1/5 and offers odds of 4/1 to the underdog, although both players have advanced to the stage of the tournament without dropping a set.
Karolina Pliskova needed three sets in both matches played so far but kept her composure and is one victory away from the semi-finals. The former number one needs to greatly improve her game to have a chance against Coco Gauff who is yet to drop a set in the tournament. The American gets odds of 3/5 to prevail, whereas a bet on the big-serving Czech player is priced at 3/2 by the same bookmaker. We believe that Gauff will prevail and won’t give too many break point opportunities.
