Top 5 sporting events of 2022 to bet on now at 1xBet

Here are some of the best sports betting options in 2022:




Winter Olympics


The Winter Olympic Games will be held in Beijing from the 4th - 22nd February. As part of the long-awaited event, athletes will compete in various disciplines in 7 different sports. A total of 109 sets of medals will be won - by the way, seven more than at the previous Games in Pyeongchang.


At 1xBet, you can already bet which country will finish first in the medal standings. The favourite is Norway (the previous first finisher); also, according to analysts of the betting company, the top five contenders include Germany, Canada, the United States and athletes from Russia.


Which athlete should you look at more closely? The list is actually quite extensive. It includes alpine skier Mikaela Shiffrin (USA), bobsledder Francesco Friedrich (Germany), figure skaters Yuzuru Hanyu (Japan) and Nathan Chen (USA), luger Natalie Geisenberger (Germany), cross-country skier Charlotte Kalla (Sweden), snowboarder Chloe Kim (USA), freestyle skier Mikael Kingsbury (Canada) and many others. We’re eagerly awaiting the start!




Champions League final


We have to mention the main club tournament in the world! In 2022, the Champions League final will take place in St. Petersburg, at the Gazprom Arena - and, of course, fans are already trying to predict the finalists and the winner.


In recent years, it’s become a tradition that Manchester City, Bayern and Liverpool are among the leading contenders for the Champions Cup. At the same time, it’s still a little unusual to see Chelsea in the top 4. However, the current trophy holder and contender for the English championship is deservedly considered by many as one of the favourites in the Champions League.


But who could have thought that a year ago, when Chelsea fired Frank Lampard after a protracted crisis and appointed a new coach, Thomas Tuchel? Everyone thought that the German would need a long time to build his team before moving towards success - but after five months at the club, he unexpectedly won the Champions League.


Who knows - maybe some of the teams, which we don't see as favourites now, can surprise us in the spring, and we'll have an unexpected champion again? In any case, you can already bet any of the 16 playoff participants at 1xBet.




World Cup


The upcoming World Cup is one of the most anticipated events of 2022. Of course, a tournament of this calibre is always eagerly anticipated, but this time around, football fans have at least one new reason to count down the days until the start of the competition.


That’s because, for the first time, it will start in the fall and end in winter. Usually, the World Cup is held in summer, but because the temperature can reach 55+ degrees in the host country Qatar, the start time of the championship was shifted several months later.


How will the national team players cope with this situation? Whether they will adapt to the new conditions and perform at their peak in the middle of the club season is a mystery for everyone. However, you can already place bets on your favourites at 1xBet: for example, brand analysts see Brazil as the main contender for the World Cup. Also in the top 5 contenders for the title are France, England, Germany and Spain.



Ballon d’Or


The outcome of the last Ballon d'Or ceremony became the most controversial in several years. For a long time in the football world, plenty of fans have expressed discontent with the voting results. The award was won (for the 7th time) by Lionel Messi - however, many believe that Robert Lewandowski deserved to take the Ballon d'Or - both in 2020, when they simply decided not to present the prize and in 2021.


While it might be difficult to produce a fantastic performance for several seasons in a row, it’s what we now expect of the Polish superstar. Yes, he’s already 33 years old, but so far, Robert is not slowing down, so he may well finally win the award in 2022. Players can bet on the Bayern striker and his success, as always, at 1xBet.


However, Lewandowski is certainly not the only contender for the award. Among his main competitors are the brilliant Liverpool leader Mohamed Salah, the evergreen Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the ambitious Kylian Mbappe, Erling Holland, and many other talented players. 


Formula 1


The last season of the top flight races ended incredibly, with drama, heartbreak and elation galore.


Before the final Grand Prix of the season, held in Abu Dhabi, championship leaders Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton had the same number of points, which has not happened since 1974. That year, Emerson Fittipaldi and Clay Regazzoni were the ones fighting for victory, with the Brazilian emerging victorious.


As for the winner of the 2021 season, it was Max Verstappen who not only overtook Lewis Hamilton in the last race - he passed the Briton on the final lap! Thanks to this, Max broke the Lewis stranglehold on the trophy, which had lasted for four years.


We wonder what the next season will be like and if Hamilton will reclaim his crown. Either way, it’s the Briton who is seen as the favourite of 1xBet analysts - the odds for his victory are almost two times less than that of Verstappen. Also, according to the bookmaker, among the leading contenders for the championship are George Russell and Charles Leclerc.
