Eleven soccer clubs make up Australia’s A-League with Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory both holding the record for most titles with four.
This season, Sydney holds a ten-point lead on Melbourne and appears to be on the road to their third title in four years.
The league plays until the first weekend in May, so there’s not much time left to get a wager on the A-League, especially when you also consider that the nation is experiencing its own coronavirus outbreak.
There are 16 teams in the Belarus Premier League that battle for the crown each season. Good thing for bettors is that the league is just starting their 2020 season and as long as the coronavirus is held at bay, bettors could see a run of games from Belarus.
The top team is BATE Borisor who has won 15 total titles, including 13 in a row, before Dinamo Brest won their first-ever title after 29 years in 2019.
