Tennis and League of Legends Worlds Finals Steal the Show This WeekendPublished November 3, 2022 by Florin P
The tennis WTA finals continue this weekend with the final games of the group stage, while the winners of the League of Legends Finals will be decided on Sunday
This was an amazing week for football fans, with Champions League and Europa League matches scheduled for midweek. Saturday and Sunday have plenty of exciting football matches to bet on at 1xBet and bet365 sports, but this weekend belongs to tennis and League of Legends finals.
Last Chance for Pegula and Jabeur at WTA Finals
Jessica Pegula had an amazing season so far, but she sits at the bottom of the group and must win the remaining two matches. Defeating Sabalenka won’t be easy, as the Belarusian has the advantage in the head-to-head record, but we love the fact that bet365 sports offer identical odds of 9/10.
Jabeur lost the U.S. Open final and continues her disappointing streak at main events, but the WTA Finals are particularly worrisome. Unless she defeats Sakkari she will be eliminated from the race and will like her chances and the odds of 3/5 to bounce back on Saturday.
T1 and DRX Play and All-Korean LoL Final
T1 is the main favorite to win the League of Legends Worlds Finals after crushing opponents throughout the tournament. In the final act of the competition, they will play against DRX, a Korean squad that eliminated some of the top contenders. T1 and Faker have a crushing advantage in the head-to-head record, having won the last 15 matches. Under these circumstances, we find the odds of 3/10 offered by bet365 sports justified and even trust the favorites to cover the -1.5 handicap.
Local Derbies Ignite European Football this Weekend
Chelsea and Arsenal play the first derby of the weekend, a match scheduled for Sunday at noon. The two teams are separated by 10 points, with Arsenal being the current leader, but they play on the road. This explains why 1xBet offers the same odds of 17/10 on the two teams from London to prevail. We expect a close match, with not so many goals scored and the draw is a likely result.
AS Roma missed a valuable opportunity to close the gap separating it from the leading pack after losing to Napoli. Now they have the chance to pick up valuable points against Lazio, as the two teams meet in the derby in Rome on Sunday afternoon. The hosts are slight favorites with even odds, but they miss several key strikers and the visitors can’t be underestimated at 3/1.
Betis and Sevilla have always had an intense rivalry, but until recently it was Sevilla that had the advantage in the series. Superior form and the absence of injuries explain why Betis now start with the first chance and odds of 11/10, as opposed to 27/10 on the visitors. This match is likely to have plenty of yellow cards and corner kicks and punters should also consider the over 2.5 goal line.
