    How To Bet On Sports During the Coronavirus Lockdown

    How To Bet On Sports During the Coronavirus Lockdown

    There are still plenty of sports to bet on despite large sections of the planet being on virus-related lockdown. While we have to admit these sports probably aren't the best-known competitions and tournaments, but you can still bet on them at the likes of Bovada and BetOnline.

    Some of the sports you can still bet on during coronavirus lockdown include:

    • The Tajikistan soccer championship
    • Masters League table tennis
    • Russian League Pro hockey
    • Exhibition darts
    • Soccer in Belarus and Nicaragua

    Continue Betting During the Lockdown

    Soccer

    The world's biggest soccer leagues, including the English Premier League, Spanish La Liga, Germany Bundesliga, and even our very own MLS have been postponed. They're unlikely to return for another couple of months at least, but soccer is still being played in some countries.

    Belarus is one country where soccer is still being played. The Eastern European country is landlocked between Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Ukraine, and Poland.

    The Belarusian Premier League continues with restrictions, with four teams still competing for the Belarusian Cup. Slavia Mozyr (+250) are the favorites in their clash with BATE Borisov (+115), while Shakhtior Soligorsk (+200) are slight favorites over Dinamo Brest (+150) in their match.

    We've also found odds on Bovada for the Belarusian Reserve League. Be aware that odds on these lesser league tend to fluctuate a lot because there aren't a lot of people betting on them. Be sure to check the odds before you place your bet.

    Table Tennis

    You may see table tennis as a game you play to pass the time while on vacation but the sports' pros take the game extremely seriously. It's hugely popular in both Russia and neighboring Ukraine and both countries are allowing their top-flight competitions to take place.

    We don't proclaim to be expert in this sport, especially when it's taking place thousands of miles away, so we suggest you do some research into the individuals playing before making your bets so you're not wagering money blindly!

    Basketball

    The current NBA season may never actually finish but that shouldn't stop you from making bets on basketball while waiting to see if it does reach a conclusion.

    The Taiwan Championship has four teams remaining as their league draws to a close. Bank of Taiwan (-115) take on Pauian Archiland (-115) in what looks set to be a close encounter.

    Jiutai look set to have their work cut out against the awesome named Taiwan Beer. Jiutai can be bet on with odds of +400 compared to Taiwan Beer's -700! Bovada even prices Taiwan Beer as -110 favorites with a -12.5 spread.

    Taiwan Beer has won the championship four times and has only finished lower than third once in the last six seasons.

    Darts

    Darts is big business these days so it's unsurprising to find darts tournaments taking place in Europe.

    You'll find some exhibition matches taking place, plus the acclaimed Modus Icons League. The latter features some of darts' biggest names, including the legendary Raymond van Barneveld who is going to be a favorite in the majority of the games he plays. There are rumors of van Barneveld taking on the world's best-ever darts player, the now-retired Phil "The Power" Taylor in the coming days!

    If you fancy a little more obscure darts then our friends over in the Czech Republic are continuing with their Premier League fixtures.

    Volleyball

    Volleyball is a great sport to watch because the action is continuous. It's even more exciting if you can bet on it, which you can with Bovada. Games are currently scheduled in Thailand and Indonesia in the Kung Volleyball 3x3 competition. Again, make sure you study any available form before parting with your hard-earned cash.

    Ice-Hockey

    The NHL is another major sporting league that has so far succumbed to the COVID-19 coronavirus but you can still get your hockey fix in both Russia and Belarus.

    Russia has the most hockey action at the moment thanks to its League Pro Moscow League which sees teams battle it out on the ice over three 10-minute intervals. The league has ties to our own NHL with some of its best players making their way to our rinks.

    CSKA Moscow, who also have a soccer team, and SKA St. Petersburg were the best teams in the Western Conference this season. The same can be said of Bars Kazan and Barys Nur-Sultan in the East.

    Tips For Betting On Obscure Sports

    Firstly, we have some good news for those of you choosing to be bet on sports from league and countries you're not familiar with. All the betting markets are exactly the same as you'd find in your traditional bets. You'll find money lines, half-time/full-time results and much more.

    We'd suggest you always do some research when it comes to any form of betting, not just leagues and competitions that you're unfamiliar with. Look at the recent form, the current standings, and see if you can discover any news about injuries in teams' rosters.
