For days in the world of football, the focus has been all about the FIFA World Cup.
From VAR drama to late goals and the current champions getting knocked out of the tournament, there’s been plenty of action in Russia.
And for some smart folks, they’ve not only been enjoying the show but have also been making some money off the games that have been played so far.
Because every media outlet is talking about the World Cup, it’s easy to assume that there’s no other football competition going on in the world apart from the one in Russia. But this is not the case.
Although most major football leagues are on break (because of the summer break and the World Cup), there are still a number of football games being played every day in various leagues around the world.
If you want more betting action, here are five football leagues that can earn you some more money during the World Cup:
Major League Soccer (U.S.A)
Split into two conferences (the Eastern and the Western Conferences), the action in the U.S.A is in its prime, with some teams playing as many as 17 games already this season.
In the Eastern Conference, Atlanta United (34 points), New York City FC (31 points) and New York Red Bulls (29 points) are leading the table. In the Western Conference, Sporting Kansas City (32 points), Dallas FC (29 points) and Los Angeles FC (27 points) lead the way.
The average number of games that have been played across board in Sweden is 11. The table has taken shape, with the likes of Hammarby and AIK taking the early lead on the standings while Dalkurds and Sirius have been experiencing early struggles, with both teams winning just one out of their last 11 games.
Serie B (Brazil)
The Serie A is on a break but action continues in the second tier league.
After 12 games played, Fortaleza, Avai FC and Vila Nova have all taken early leads on the table, with Avai scoring an average of almost two goals per game.
At the other end, some teams like CRB, Criciuma and Boa Esporte have started experiencing early difficulties with Boa winning just one of their last six games.
These are some of the leagues in which you can get even more football games to bet on.
