With virtually all major sporting events and tournaments on hold for the foreseeable future, sports fans don’t have a lot to cheer about. It’s been a quiet few weeks and that may continue but all is not lost. There is still some sporting action and although it’s limited, it may just fill the void.

Nicaragua Liga Primera
Throughout every footballing nation on the planet, three leagues continue with their domestic season. One of the most popular nations with the betting public in recent weeks has been the Nicaragua Liga Primera division in Central America. The 10-team league consists of 18 match days, and the league currently has four matchdays remaining until the end of the season.
The league divides its schedule between midweek and the weekend, but make sure you begin your research now as the season is coming to an end in four fixtures time.
League leaders Managua are looking strong to finish the season in the first place, but be sure to keep an eye out on 2nd and 3rd place Real Estelí and Diriangen, as they’re just three points separating them from the first position. Keep an eye on top three sides, as anybody below them has a huge hill to climb to finish top of the league.
Favourite team – Managua & Real Estelí
Belarus Premier League
With the Nicaraguan league coming to a close in two weeks, you’ll be happy to know one of the few remaining actives league is the Belarusian Premier League. Its domestic season started on the 19th of March 2020, and will go on until the very last week of May.
You may have heard of the team BATE, due to their stints in the European competition like the UEFA cup. They’re the defending champions in Belarus and have won 12 consecutive titles, 14 in total. Their season hasn’t got off to the greatest start, both away games they’ve played have resulted losses and the current league leaders were one of those losses.
The Belarus Premier League is the only professional football league in the world still playing.
This is a huge opportunity for me.

Energetik-BGU is looking like strong underdogs as the season is three games deep into the schedule, they already have a win over the defending champions and have secured all nine points.
Between the domestic schedules, you can also bet on the Belarus Cup. Four teams remain in the competition and the semi-final legs will take place this week. BATE are looking strong, with no shock at all. They’ll most likely turn around their league fortunes and take the title as well.
Favourite team – BATE Borisov
Tajikistan Vysshaya Liga
The Tajikistan Vysshaya football league began domestic competition this week and has a full schedule lined up until June. The Central Asian league consists of 10 teams and will host weekend games until the ending week in May.
The main attractions in Tajikistan Liga are the defending champions Istiklol. They’ve won the league competition eight times and have held the crown consecutively since 2014. Last season, Istiklol dominated the season with a 15 point gap separating them from second place.
As expected, they’re tipped to dominate the league once again. With just two losses to their record last year, it’ll be hard to ignore Istiklol on your betting slip during the pandemic.

Fighting or Politics?
The Ultimate Fighting Championship
Maybe the thought of betting on obscure football leagues is just too much and betting a few quid against your friend on FIFA20 isn’t doing the job. Bookmakers are offering odds and just about every league or event that remains in action but one of the more interesting markets would be the martial arts section.
UFC 249 has been confirmed by UFC president Dana White for April the 18th and will be headlined by Tony Ferguson versus Justin Gaethje. There will be a wide array of fights to bet on, so if you fancy watching some knockouts or submissions and betting on it, the UFC is for you.
Or maybe you want to slow the pace down and have a nice future wager on American politics. Well, President Trump is going up against Joe Biden and the betting lines are quite extensive, giving you plenty of prop bets and different options to choose from.
