Betting The Brazilian Volleyball Superliga Women
When anyone thinks of Volleyball, their mind will inevitably wander to the sun, sea and sand of the Copacabana Beach in Rio de Janeiro. While there aren’t any professional games played there, Brazil does have a thriving women’s volleyball competition, the Superliga.
The Women’s Superliga is one of the top volleyball leagues not just in South America, but in the whole world. With great teams and players, there is so much for online betters to enjoy and place bets on. EagleBet is the place to be for Superliga betting tips, as we offer great tips today and fantastic sports betting guides on a wide variety of volleyball leagues.
Women Superliga Background and History of Clubs
While the Superliga was initially formed in 1976, it took until 1994 before it settled on its current format.The first champion 26 years ago was Leites Nestlé, who were based first in Sorocaba, one of the largest cities in the state of São Paulo, and then Jundiaí, also in São Paulo.
Leites were able to overcome Osasco Voleibol Clube in the final, to lift the inaugural championship trophy. They were very successful in those early years of the Superliga, winning the competition for the first three seasons. They would almost certainly still be a favourite with online betters now if they were still competing, however unfortunately Leites folded in 1999 and ceased to exist.
How Does Brazilian Superliga Women Works
There are 12 teams in the Superliga, which is the highest league in the Brazilian volleyball pyramid. Each player plays each side both home and away, meaning they have 22 matches each. With a total number of 264 matches, it gives bettors an incredibly wide selection of games to bet on.
While the top eight teams will progress from the regular season into the playoffs, the bottom two are relegated into the division below. This means there is always excitement at both ends of the league, so people betting online will be able to find great odds for both playoff winners and relegation candidates.
The last fully completed edition of the Superliga was the 2018/19 season. In the regular season it was the side Minas who were top of the table, having only lost two games out of 22. This means they were heavy favourites going into the playoffs, and online betters would’ve eagerly followed their progress.
They of course made it to the final, where they were faced with Praia Clube. These were the top seeded teams, so both sides had good odds to win the final. It was Minas who came out on top, lifting the trophy after a 2-0 victory.
Superliga Women Best Performing Teams
Historically the best teams in the Superliga are Rexona-Ades, who are way out in front with 12 championship titles. Next is Osasco Voleibol Clube, who themselves have claimed five Superliga trophies. Safe to say they are both favourites with online betters, and are two sides to look out for when the 2019/20 season resumes.
