Once you've had time to catch your breath from a busy weekend of sporting action, you might want to fork out some money on Monday's soccer or cricket action. Although the sporting schedule for the first day of the week isn't particularly jam-packed, there is certainly enough on offer for fans of Serie A, La Liga and the Indian Premier League. Here are some of the fixtures you might want to bet on:
Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Kings XI Punjab
Two of four teams tied on 10 points in the race for fourth place in the Indian Premier League go head to head in Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab. There are controversial figures in both sides as Sunrisers Hyderabad have the enigmatic David Warner in their ranks whilst Punjab are captained by Ravichandran Ashwin, who was at the centre of controversy after his controversial run out of Jos Buttler.
All this only adds to the entertainment value for what should be an epic contest. Here are the odds if you're looking at placing a bet:
- Sunrisers Hyderabad Win incl. Super Over: 1.70 at Hollywoodbets
- Kings XI Punjab Win incl. Super Over: 2.10 at Hollywoodbets
Atalanta vs Udinese
For the football fans, this is a potential humdinger. Atalanta have recovered their goalscoring form after a brief drought and this might make the over 2.5 goals and over 3.5 goals markets an attractive option to bettors. Udinese by contrast are hovering above the relegation zone and fighting desperately for safety.
Real Betis vs Espanyol
Real Betis and Espanyol face off in a mid-table La Liga clash which this writer believes is a difficult one to call. Real Betis' recent matches have been high-scoring, and so again, you might want to look at the over 2.5 goals or over 3.5 goals markets. Since Espanyol have often seen BTTS (both teams to score) recently, that might also be worth a look.
