Undervalued local leagues – a sure way to win 


Online bettors are always looking for new ways on how to bet on football as they try different bookmakers. Quite often, they discover a game of a lesser-known team from their region. Let’s see how the game may unfold using the local football championship, Belarusian Premier League.


The main favorite of the Belarusian championship in 2018, BATE Borisov, was playing against the underdog, FC Vitebsk. It seems that BATE has a much better chance of winning, as they were in first place playing at home and against a weaker team. 


But here’s the thing, the odds for the FC Vitebsk was suspiciously high, at about 1.6. A question arises then, was this a trick of the bookmakers or was there a problem in the BATE performance? Despite this, most newbie gamblers had bet on the home team’s victory without second guessing.


The game ended in a draw. So how did this happen? The bottom line is that in the last match, BATE went to visit PSV and played in the next confrontation of the Champions League qualifications and spent all their energy on this fight. Naturally, the main squad was very tired, and they had to put up non-main players for the game with Vitebsk.


Tips for betting on unpopular matches 


As you can see in the example, betting on the favorite in local football championships can be quite risky. Then, what is the best bet in football in these cases? Here’s a few important betting tips on how to win on unpopular football matches: 


  • All leagues have interesting matchups, and you can bet on anything. Just don’t forget that it’s important to do high-quality analysis of each game.


  • In the beginning, try to bet on well-known local leagues. It is easier to make a good forecast there, and more statistics are available to any average gambler.


  • Don’t focus on high odds alone. If you think that big odds for underdog teams are a bookmaker’s mistake, then in 99% of cases you are mistaken.
