LAS VEGAS - Today’s edition of the Daily Sports Betting Preview features games and matches from around the world.

First, in Germany, the Bundesliga is back, and with it comes the second division, the 2 Bundesliga betting odds.

Then, in the world of Counter-Strike betting, the Dreamhack Masters Spring 2020 competition continues with a lot of great matches today.

Finally, in perhaps one of the most esoteric sporting events ever covered in this column, the Preview takes a look at a Belarusian Futsal match.

2 Bundesliga Betting

Soccer in Germany is organized into divisions, and when you finish too far to the bottom of one division, you are relegated to the next one.

The 2 Bundesliga is composed of the teams that were relegated from the Bundesliga, and are fighting for a chance at promotion into it.

It is also composed of teams who have fought their way up from even lower leagues, and are looking for a chance at glory.

Today’s match in the 2 Bundesliga is between Hamburger SV and Holstein Keil.

Hamburg are third in the league, and fighting for a promotion into the main Bundesliga, while Holstein are 12th out of the 18 teams in the league, and are looking to stay out of the relegation zone.

The spread for the match favors Hamburg by a goal, but there is some shading on the spread that suggests that Holstein might have better odds than it suggests.

Hamburg -1 has +105 odds, while Holstein +1 has -135 odds.

On the moneyline, Hamburg is -170, while Holstein is +400. A draw in the match has odds of +320.

The match is expected to be relatively low scoring, with an Over/Under line of three goals. That said, there is some shading towards the Over, as it has -130 odds while the Under has +100 odds.

One final note for the ardent soccer betting fans among the readership of this column - the major online sportsbooks are offering a lot of alternate spreads and Over/Under lines, which means that basically anything is on the table.

Bettors will be able to find odds on any spread within the range of reasonable spreads, meaning that one could bet on Holstein +2 at -475, or Holstein +0 at +265.

Overall, there are a lot of great opportunities to bet on this match.

CS:GO Dreamhack Masters Betting

The Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Dreamhack Masters Spring 2020 has been a constant source of esports betting action during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The competition is split up regionally, and today’s featured match comes from the EU portion of the competition.

Today’s featured match is between Heroic and Team Vitality and looks to be an interesting competition from a betting perspective.

Let’s start with the moneyline, where Vitality are a -210 favorite, while Heroic clock in with +160 odds.

This is not a huge gap in odds between the two, but a -210 favorite is significant.

In CS:GO betting, the spread is set similar to tennis betting, where it refers to the number of sets the match will be won by.

The spread in most CS:GO competitions, including this one, is set at +/- 1.5, and then bets are taken on that spread, with no attention paid by the sportsbooks to trying to get even money on both sides of the bet.

Heroic +1.5 has -200 odds, while Vitality -1.5 has +150 odds, indicating that the spread of 1.5 far outstrips the amount that Vitality is better than Heroic by.

In other words: Vitality is better than Heroic, but not so much better that they are expected to completely dominate.

However, that is just what the odds suggest, and the odds are wrong plenty of the time.

Many esports bettors try to beat the odds, and this match provides a good opportunity for them to do so.

Belarusian Futsal Betting

The Daily Sports Betting Preview was built around the concept of providing a spotlight to sports at online betting sites that might have gone below the radar of the average sports bettor.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, these sporting events became more and more esoteric, as many leagues began to shut down to protect players and fans.

However, the final section of today’s preview covers perhaps the most esoteric sporting event to ever show up in this column - Belarusian Futsal.

Yes, Belarus, famous for maintaining its soccer league throughout the pandemic, also has a Futsal league.

Today’s match features Stalitsa Minsk taking on BCH Gomel, and some genuinely interesting betting odds.

Minsk are -180 on the moneyline, and thus are regarded as the favorites in this match. Gomel, the underdogs, have +295 odds.

A draw has +385 odds, which is worth noting, as it means both teams are more likely to win than a draw is to occur.

On the spread, Minsk -1 is still a favorite, although by a tiny margin. Minsk -1 has -125 odds, while Gomel +1 has -120 odds.

In other words, the spread of +/-1 almost perfectly splits the action, with both sides of the bet having similar odds.

This is an excellent betting opportunity from one of the most unknown leagues in the world, and shouldn’t be missed by sports bettors around the globe.
