Betting on Soccer Year-Long
Most sports bettors who love to place wagers on soccer tend to be at a loss what to do when summer rolls on by and most of the European leagues draw to a close. Assuming it is one of those years when the Euro Cup or World Cup is being played then that offers some respite, but it is very often short-lived and leaves a lot of time in between when there is no soccer going on. Honestly speaking however, that isn't strictly true, and if you were to check the Betfair odds, you'd see there are a lot of other leagues out there too.
Looking Outside Europe
While the English Premier League, Spanish Primera Liga, German Bundesliga, and Italian Serie A may be the most popular leagues in the world – there are many others too! Apart from the other European Leagues, there are leagues in the rest of the world that do not follow the very specific seasonal schedule of the European leagues.
For example, leagues located in equatorial regions of Asia, the Middle East and Africa are not subject to taking winter breaks or even summer breaks. Matter of fact their calenders differ greatly from their European counterparts and are largely based on when the hot and dry seasons are as well as the rainy seasons that are prone to thunderstorms.
Assuming you follow these leagues, it is actually quite possible to find year-long action for soccer that will keep you occupied during the 'down time' of the European leagues. The only downside is that the quality of most of these leagues tend to be less than the famous 'big 4', but at the end of the day – some soccer is better than no soccer, right?
When choosing a league to bet on outside Europe, you might want to consider a few things. For starters, try to find a league that has a lot of reliable information regarding it. Certain websites such as Fox Sports provide lots of coverage, so just make sure that the league you're looking at has some way that you can track teams' performances and news.
Considering the number of obscure leagues that Betfair and other bookmakers provide odds for, it is a safe bet that it should be listed and you'll be able to get an idea of what to expect from the odds for that league after observing it for some time. Once you're sure you want to bet on that league – go ahead and enjoy year-long betting on soccer.
