Top Sports Events: August 26 – September 1

by GemBet

Welcome to another Weekly Sports Events piece, and it’s safe to say that we can expect much hot action heading our way!

Between August 26 and September 1, GemBet’s sports fans will have the opportunity to bet on a wide range of events, including several fantastic football matches, such as Premier League matchup Newcastle vs. Liverpool. Still, there is also a La Liga clash between Villareal vs. Barcelona and a Serie A classic, AS Roma vs. AC Milan.

As all the best leagues in the world are just in their starting phases, sports betting and football betting enthusiasts have a lot of excitement in store. 

Besides first-class football, the last week of August is also the starting point for the US Open, Formula 1’s Dutch Grand Prix, and the adrenaline-fueled UFC thrill in Singapore between Holloway vs. Korean Zombie.


A Top Premier League Clash: Newcastle vs. Liverpool

As one of the top Premier League teams, the Newcastle vs. Liverpool matchup is a highly-anticipated event. Taking place at St James Park on August 27, 2023 (at 11:30 PM SGT), we will once again see the magic unfolding brought by Newcastle’s Alexander Isak and Harvey Barnes and Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota.

Liverpool is a solid favorite in this game with Boosted Odds, as Newcastle’s last win over Liverpool was in 2015. Still, it’s certain that they’ll try very hard to break this long losing streak and climb up the Premier League leaderboard. 

Newcastle lost their previous matchup in a close game against Man City, which might be interfering with their focus, but they will surely attempt to exploit Liverpool by attacking midfield. 

As for Liverpool’s new signee, MacAllister, he’ll be missing the match as a result of his red card against Bournemouth, and Wataru Endo (also a new player) might have the chance to become the starting player for the first time. 

Finally, football betting fans have recently seen Luis Diaz on fire, scoring goals in their latest matches against Bournemouth and Chelsea.


Insane La Liga Showdown: Villareal vs. Barcelona

Taking place at Estadio de la Cerámica in Villareal, the Villareal vs. Barcelona La Liga matchup will bring us some outstanding Spanish football on August 27, 2023 (at 11:30 PM SGT), and it’s definitely one of the best matches this week.

Tuning into this dazzling match is a must, as we’ll have the opportunity to watch some of the world’s best players take center stage, including Robert Lewandowski and Yeremy Pino. Betting on this game is also a smart option, as we’re offering Boosted Odds!

Since Pau Torres left Villareal, this resulted in a massive hole in their defense, which is one of the main reasons why Barcelona is the favored team. 

As in the last few years, Villareal will be trying hard to make it to the Champions League, and the ex-Barcelona player Denis Suarez might be starting against his old club. 

Under the guidance of Xavi, Barcelona played incredibly well, which won them the La Liga title the previous year, and their team cohesion seems to be improving even more. 

On the other hand, their Champions League efforts have yet to be so successful, and the Illkay Gundogan and Inigo Martinez transfers might help them reach the finals in 2023 and possibly go all the way and win the competition.


Intense Serie A Encounter: AS Roma vs. AC Milan

A matchup between some of the best clubs in Serie A is always a delight to watch, and the AS Roma vs. AC Milan game comes as no exception. Taking place in Stadio Olimpico in Rome on September 2 (at 2:45 AM SGT), GemBet’s fans of football are in for a wild ride. 

Football betting fans can expect a very close game, as Milan is only given a slight advantage in terms of odds, which is partially due to the loss of Sandro Tonali, which will result in a huge dent in Milan’s midfield. 

As for new arrivals, Cristian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are expected to strengthen their squad greatly. Also, with the finalized transfer of Samuel Chukwueze, Milan’s attack on the wings will surely soar. 

Roma also has some fantastic new additions (a result of a free transfer), and these include Evan Ndicka, Houssem Aouar, and Rasmus Kristensen

Under the leadership of Jose Mourinho, Roma managed to win the previous Europa Conference League and were runners-up in the now epically controversial final of the Europa League against Sevilla.

Finishing 6th for the second year in a row, Roma will have to kick it into high gear if they’re planning on entering the Champions League later this year. 


Major UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Korean Zombie

Singaporean sports betting fans have something to look forward to, as this Fight Night is happening in Singapore’s Indoor Stadium on August 26 (at 8 PM SGT).

This epic Featherweight showdown is among the weekly sports events we can’t wait to see! The fight’s going to be between Max Holloway vs. Korean Zombie (Chan Sung Jung), where Holloway stands as the most likely victor in this anticipated fight.

Although the Korean Zombie has the odds stacked against him, GemBet’s UFC fans can bet on this event with Boosted Odds and potentially win a fortune!

Max “Blessed” Holloway is the current number one in the Featherweight Division and has a track record of 24-7-0 (won-lost-draw), and ten of his wins were by knockout. 

Holloway will be faced by the Korean Zombie, best known for his submission-fueled style of playing. His current record is 17-7-0, and he holds 8th place in the Featherweight Division.

Chan Sung Jung’s nickname is derived from his relentless spirit, as he never backs down, even in a losing fight. 


The Tournament of Unforgettable Tennis: The US Open

Tennis fans across the world will have an opportunity to watch premium hardcourt action because the US Open is coming!

Starting on August 28 and ending on September 10, one of the most important tennis tournaments is held at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City.

For betting enthusiasts who enjoy tennis, this tournament is the last chance of the season to bet on a Grand Slam

This year’s key players are Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic, and Djokovic is only given a slight advantage. 

Novak is also going after a record-breaking 24th Grand Slam title after the suspenseful loss against Alcaraz in Wimbledon’s final match. 

As for Alcaraz, if he manages to win the tournament, this will place him in an envious position as he’ll extend his lead in front of Djokovic. 

Finally, if Alcaraz wins the competition, he’ll become the first Spaniard to win the US Open after Nadal’s last triumph in 2019. 


Extraordinary Formula 1 Magic: Dutch Grand Prix 2023

Formula 1 fans will have a chance to watch the projected favorite, Max Verstappen, compete in his home race on August 27 at 9 PM SGT.

Held at the Netherlands’ Circuit Zandvoort, the Dutch Grand Prix is going to be a hotbed of excitement as the Orange Army (the ever-faithful fans of Verstappen) is expected to create a superb atmosphere with flares and some bombs. 

Regarding the odds, Max Verstappen is the absolute favorite in this race, followed by Sergio Perez and Lando Norris. 

If Verstappen manages to win, this will be his third consecutive Dutch Grand Prix title, which is an infrequent occurrence in the competition’s rich history!

Also, in case Verstappen ends up on top, he will equal Sebastian Vettel’s consecutive record of nine wins, which is more than likely to happen considering his 248-lap lead during the eight previous victories.
