THERE have been plenty of hits and misses on the more obscure leagues we find ourselves betting on.
Belarus have probably been the most popular one with just a handful of football matches taking place across the globe each night.
I've been wondering whether it's worth putting up tips so I was cheered last weekend when Ladbrokes sent me an email about an Irish customer who correctly backed six odds-against shots in Belarus, Burundi and Nicaragua at a combined 4266-1.
I wonder what his thoughts are on this weekend's card? I correctly tipped both Belarus Cup semi-final first-leg ties in midweek with wins for Slavia Mozyr and Dynamo Brest and I'm hoping for some improvement in my league form.
Results have been fairly unpredictable over the first three weekends but one outstanding team have emerged.
Bgu Minsk are the only side to win three out of three and anyone watching live streams will have been impressed by their attacking intent and quality in what looks to be overall a limited league.
On Saturday they travel to Torpedo Zhodino who have six points and initially I thought the away price was massive at 5-2 with bet365.
But a bit of digging revealed their rotten h2h record in Zhodino where they haven't won since 2001.
That's a concern but I prefer form to previous meetings and Bgu have looked good so I'm happy to take a chance on draw no bet as a Super Single at 7-5 with sportingbet.
Earlier in the lunchtime clash second-placed Slutsk are at home to Vitebsk with both sides winning two from three. I'd favour Slutsk at 5-4 with Paddy Power but can't rule out a draw – and in this match Greg fancies bookings so check out his post here.
The late game sees Gorodeja entertain Dinamo Minsk and both these sides have won one and lost two. Dinamo edge the head-to-head record but this has the feel of a draw.
Well done to all the winners on Thursday including Greg with his goals tips from Belarus reserve matches and all those with winning calls on esports.
- Bgu Minsk draw no bet (2pm)
- (7-5, sportingbet)
