A fascinating week begins for betting fans that enjoy football, tennis, and League of Legends, as the Champions League qualifiers, Bastad clay tournament, and LCK matches are underway.

The Champions League qualifiers started earlier this year, as football fans prepare for the World Cup in November. Tennis fans have had their fill with Wimbledon and for a brief period, they will enjoy their favorite sport on clay. Meanwhile, Esports enthusiasts can watch the most exciting LoL matches from South Korea and all of them can bet on these events at 1xBet and bet365 sports.

Maribor and Slovan Bratislava Seek Wins on the Road

Home pitch advantage was supposed to give Maribor and Slovan Bratislava an edge over opponents that are notoriously difficult to beat in front of their fans. None of these teams were able to score in the opening round, so now they need to pick up all three points away from home. They travel to Georgia and Turkey, where they are expected to switch to a more aggressive gear after the scoreless first leg draws.

Maribor has some experience in Champions League qualifiers but hasn’t made it to the group stage before. The same goes for Slovan Bratislava who has strengthened the squad mid-season and hopes that those investments will bear fruit in the qualifiers. Punters should bet on both of them to win on the road and enjoy spectacular odds of 9/10 at bet365 sports.

Backhand Artists Start as Underdogs in Bastad

Lorenzo Musetti and Stan Wawrinka have two of the most beautiful backhands in the circuit. On a good day, these are formidable weapons that can easily dispatch opponents, but unfortunately, they backfire too often. For a brief period between the grass and hard court season, tennis fans can enjoy the light four matches on clay, such as the ones played in Sweden at Bastad.

Lorenzo Musetti starts as the underdog, with odds of 9/10 against Djere, a less talented player with a more solid track record. The Serbian also has the advantage in head-to-head matches, winning three out of four, including the only contest in 2022. Stan Wawrinka fell from grace and now the multiple Grand Slam winner starts with a second chance and gets odds of 9/5 at bet365 sports to defeat Carreno Busta.

League of Legends Fans Bet on the Finest LCK Teams

The South Korean LCK resumes on Wednesday with T1 and GenG tied for the lead and expected to consolidate their advantage. T1 defeated their archrivals and can claim solitary first place if they crush Hanwha Life in straight games. This is a David versus Goliath in counter, where Faker’s team only gets odds of 1/20 to win and 1/5 to sweep the opponents. A better option for betting is on over 22.5 kills.

GenG faces LiivSandbox in what appears to be a lopsided duel, although the two teams are separated by a single win. GenG sits in second place with 7 victories and gets odds of 1/5 at 1xBet to defeat LiivSandbox who is in third with 6 wins. The underdogs have the highest percentage for first Dragon kills and we think punters should consider betting on them to secure this objective at even odds.
