Betting tips: Moraing vs. Machac and Leixões vs. Farense
- Mats Moraing vs. Tomas Machac (Meerbusch challenger)
- Leixões vs. SC Farense (Liga Portugal 2)
Tennis – Meerbusch challenger R1: Mats Moraing vs. Tomas Machac
Another clay tournament for Mats Moraing this week. The player from Germany played only 3 matches this season off clay (and he lost all 3). His clay record this season is quite solid (22 wins – 14 losses) and playing in his home country should add an extra bit of motivation. Moraing's best performance in 2021 was winning the challenger of Forli in Italy, where he was far from being a top favorite.
Tomas Machac's season is looking very different so far. He is the better ranked player at the moment (world #150) but he played only 10 matches on clay since the start of the year (6 wins – 4 losses). This record may look average, however Machac just reached the final in the challenger of Liberec, beating several excellent players (Enzo Couacaud, Nikola Milojevic, Botic Van De Zandschulp) but losing heavily in the final to Alex Molcan (6-0, 6-1).
It is impossible to deny Machac is the better player, nevertheless if we consider his tough loss that happened just yesterday after playing 5 consecutive matches, and Moraing's extra motivation playing at home, expecting a close encounter makes sense to us.
Prediction: there is no head-to-head record between the two players. We back Moraing to win a set (Set betting).
Football – Liga Portugal 2: Leixoes vs. SC Farense
Leixoes start their season in the Liga Segunda after playing two friendly matches: a draw against Gil Vincente (1-1) and a win over Caldas (4-1). Last season, Leixoes finished #10 in the ranking, scoring 35 goals but conceding on 43 occasions.
Farense was one of the relegated teams from the Primeira Liga last year, ending #17 in the ranking, with 31 goals scored and 48 conceded. To prepare for this new season, Farense won a cup match over Chaves but lost narrowly to Santa Clara after the penalty shootouts (no goal scored)
In recent history, the encounters between the two teams have been very close. No match was won by more than one goal. We saw 2 draws, 2 wins by Farense and 1 win by Leixoes.
Prediction: considering the context and recent history, and the fact that the home team is the underdog, we suggest betting on a close encounter. We predict: Leixoes + 1 goal (Asian handicap).
