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 league on the site with just a handful of football matches taking place across the globe each night.
So I was cheered when Ladbrokes sent me an email about an Irish customer who correctly backed six odds-against shots across in, Burundi and Nicaragua at a combined 4266-1.
The acca looked dead when Slutsk went behind away to Isloch in Belarus but two goals in the 61st and 75th minutes ensured the comeback was complete and the sixfold la whopping €2,133.88 from just a €0.50 stake.
The bet in full:
Vitebsk to beat Smolevichi – 19-10
Slutsk to beat Isloch – 4-1
Olympic S to beat Lydia Ludic – 11-4
Dynamik to beat Aigle Noir – 5-2
Chinandaga to beat Jalapa – 19-4
Walter Ferretti to beat Esteli – 29-110
It was a cracking success using the smallest of stakes and the punter certainly had the luck if the Irish.
The first day of action at the Icons of Darts Live League saw Dutchman Wessel Nijman win Group One with some superb throws.
He hammered tournament favourite Raymond van Barneveld 5-1 in his opener and it proved a miserable day for the Dutchman with four defeats.
The action continues on Tuesday with players in action from their homes.
On the football front I don't see anything to bet on but there are signs we'll be getting some proper action early June with Austria the latest to put a timetable on a return.
German Bundesliga players have returned to group training and Denmark are easing lockdown restrictions.
