There is also good news for video games betting enthusiasts, as the major championships resume this weekend.

Bet on Clay and Hard Court Specialists
The Buenos Aires tournament has brought back into the spotlight the best tennis players on clay. Ruud and Coria kick start the show on Friday, with the Argentinean having the advantage in the head-to-head matches. However, it is the Norwegian who is in better form at the time and overall the superior player, hence the odds of 1/5 at 1xBet. Another local favorite plays against Munar, as Schwarzman is expected to confirm his high seed status and the odds of 7/20.i
WTA fans have their eyes locked on the St. Petersburg tournament and its high-profile quarterfinals. Sakkari hasn’t lost a set in this tournament and takes on Mertens who barely qualified after a narrow margin wins. The Greek is favorite with odds of 3/5, as opposed to 13/10for the Belgian player. Bencic and Kontaveit lock horns for the third time, with the Canadian seeking the first win. She is unlikely to achieve it in Russia, as she is the underdog with odds of 3/2, while the Estonian is priced at 1/2.
Potentially Title Deciding Matches Scheduled this Weekend
The strongest European football leagues have scheduled derbies this weekend that could decide the trophy winners. In Portugal, Sporting takes on Porto and unless they prevail on the road, they are unlikely to win the championship. They have an impeccable track record on the road but play against an undefeated team, hence the underdog status. Odds of 14/5 on Sporting are surely tempting, but we prefer it be even value offered by bet365 Sports to extend invincible run with a victory.
Napoli and Inter are separated by a single point, but the latter have a game in hand. The hosts are in dire need of a victory to take the temporary lead and remain in the race for the championship. The two teams are so evenly matched, that punters get identical odds of 17/10 on each of them to win. We like the odds on the draw a lot, especially with values of 17/5 offered by bet365 Sports. If you fancy special markets, you should consider betting on a high number of corners, as these teams tend to score many every game.
Liverpool and Marseille trail the leaders by two digits and can’t afford any mistakes. Both are expected to win on the road against Burnley and Metz, with combined odds of 11/10. We expect a high number of corner kicks for the visitors and potentially yellow cards in the second half. The hosts have a reputation for playing with confidence when they have a home pitch advantage and won’t give up without a fight. Risk-averse punters can settle for the outright winner, but the odds on the half-time/full-time markets are quite tempting. Marseille and Liverpool are expected to come out firing on all cylinders and take the lead.
