With countless soccer leagues to choose from on the online soccer odds board, deciding which the best league is to bet on can be a challenge. Here we’ve put together a handy guide to help you make the optimum decision.

Which Soccer League is the Best to Bet On

 

 

Whether you know it as soccer or football, it’s hands down one of the most widely popular sports to bet on around the world, offering a whole slew of domestic leagues, national cup competitions, intra-continental club competitions, international competitions, and much, much more to spot on your soccer picks.

The sheer quantity of leagues worldwide that are readily available to soccer bettors across soccer betting platforms can overwhelm both novice and avid soccer bettors, making the decision where to place bets one of the most challenging exercise, if not the most fundamental towards guaranteeing success. Towards that endeavour we’ve put together three key points to follow before settling on which one (or more) soccer leagues is the best bet for you.

1. Know the League

This may seem obvious, but we can’t stress this fundamental principle of sports betting in general. Whether you are betting for fun or as a serious bettor you’ll be happier when you win than when you lose. Of course, it’s not an absolute rule that sticking to what you know guarantees a winning bet, but betting on what you know and what you are familiar with is certain to improve your chances of success. For instance, if you follow Barclay’s Premier League, your likely to win more bets placed on it than if you were to try your hand at some far-flung Ukrainian League, which you know nothing of and have never watched or followed with any intention.

2. Research the League

Researching the league, even if you know it well, is a good idea and it can be a key towards success with your soccer picks. This applies more if you are a novice or casual soccer bettor, but avid soccer enthusiasts shouldn’t shirk this step either. There’s always something new to learn, latest news to be on top of, player injury reports and updates to be aware of…so on. The more you increase your knowledge, the more you know, and the likelihood of making smarter predictions and picks increases.

3. Bet on League’s that are Accessible To You

The first two points set up this point: a league should be accessible to you. To know a league or research a league – the league itself and any relevant information about it –it must be easily accessible either literally or figuratively. Granted there’s a lot of information online that soccer bettors can access, from newspaper articles to various handicapping articles and the like, which can give soccer bettors the feeling of accessibility. However, reading about it doesn’t come close to actually watching games, be it as a spectator in the stands or watching TV and online streams.

Those soccer bettors living in the UK or the greater European continent have enviable access to some of the best leagues in the world, such as Barclay’s Premier League, La Liga (Spain), Serie A (Italy) and Ligue 1 (France), amongst several others. The rest of the world relies on being able to watch soccer games on TV or online. It stands to reason, therefore, the leagues that you can watch are probably the best leagues for you to bet on. This will depend on where you live and your TV provider, or in the case of online streams whether any area restrictions apply.
