Tennis and Esports Matches Steal the Sports Betting Show this WeekendPublished March 25, 2022 by Florin P
Miami Open starts this week with amazing matches scheduled for the first round, while LoL fans are in for a treat with LEC and LCK playoffs.
Domestic football leagues are on recess this weekend, which means that punters need to channel their attention to other betting options. The ATP and WTA Miami matches are the highlights of the weekend, with equally exciting opportunities for esports fans. Playoff matches are underway in the European and South Korean championships and 1xBet and bet365 sports cover them both.
Classic Matches Kickstart ATP Miami Open
The best players in the ATP circuit converge to Florida for the most important tournament in late March. Two matches stand out from the crowd, bringing some of the most talented players into the spotlight. Rublev and Kyrgios face in a match the Russian is expected to win, according to the odds of 1/2 offered by 1xBet. In the other match of the day, Zverev takes on Coric, in a duel of the new generation. Coric is priced at 9/2 despite leading the series 3-2.
Veterans take on Rising Stars in WTA Miami
The women’s championship is every bit as exciting, with two matches presenting a unique option for seasoned punters. Kvitova is one of the most experienced players on the tour and she takes on 21 years old Burel. The Czech is the favorite with odds of only 1/5, but she isn’t in the best form and the youngster looks like a real challenge at odds of 7/2. Another lopsided match with identical odds at 1xBet pits Mertens vs Fruhvirtova, who is 16 and one of the most promising players.
T1 and Damwon Play an LCK Classic
One of the most anticipated matches of the LCK playoffs pits T1 against DWG KIA. Faker and his team are undefeated this season and they hope to carry that momentum into the playoffs. The odds offered by bet365 sports certainly reflect that reality, but we expect Damwon to win at least one match. Punters should also consider betting on a high number of dragons and tower kills. The opening games shouldn’t feature many kills, as pressure will be high on both teams.
Fnatic and G2 Reignite a Timeless LEC Rivalry
The most successful two teams in European League of Legends history lock horns on Saturday. Fnatic dominated the regular season and they are just favorites with odds of 2/5 at bet365 sports, while G2 Esports are priced at 17/10. This is expected to be an action-packed series, with plenty of kills and likely to go the distance. We expect Fnatic to carry that momentum in the postseason, and cover the -1.5 games spread while defeating their archrivals.
