Bet on the Bundesliga or its Belarusian Roulette
Who can make football predictions right now? Me. That’s who. My first: swat up on German football. This one is surely obvious. Germany is seemingly the only major country actually playing any football at the moment. If you want an edge when online betting, for example, through Bodog Canada, turn your mind to discovering the Bundesliga full back who is consistently underpriced for his assists.
Or you could look to one of the more minor European leagues and cram yourself a passable education in the Belarusian first division. This is yet to suspend its Premier League fixtures and maybe where you need to look to get one up on the online betting algorithms. Perhaps there’s value to be found when taking a punt in the arcane overs/unders market on the obscure bottom-of-the-table clash between FC Minsk and Nerman Grodno.
The Last Remaining Fixtures
If this is not your thing, why not try the Korean K League? It is the last professional league you could stake an online bet on before having to look to friendlies between teams with names like Ironi Ashdod Sportclub and Hapoel Beer Sheva who, when not playing meaningless exhibition matches in the middle of a global pandemic, play their competitive football in the Israeli Premier League.
Back in Britain
Perhaps there is one final option: the English Premier League. The league’s Project Restart committee are spending their days desperately trying to work out how squads the size of a large English village can play multiple, closely consecutive 90 minutes of close contact sport under physically distant restrictions. It’s difficult to see how they can make this happen. One reassurance offered is to ban spitting. But football, like most other sports, is a phlegmy business.
If the league returns, maybe this is where the value in the online betting markets as virus-vigilant referees pull the yellow from their pockets for player’s public health infractions. However you do it, we can all agree that these are strange times indeed, and online betting it seems is no exception.
