Betting on the Danish Superliga
Denmark’s top tier of domestic football is called the Superliga, and the division is competed for between July and May every year, with an extended winter break the reason for the extreme length of the format. The climate is of course the reason for the length of that break.
The competition is popular both within the country and outside, where an increasing number of fans have been attracted to betting on the Danish Superliga and its 14 teams. Using our Danish football odds comparison tool is a smart way to approach betting on matches in this Scandinavian country.
Danish Superliga Odds
Denmark’s domestic competitions are evenly spread over most of the year, which is of big appeal to supporters, even though it affords the players themselves little time off. Speaking of the players, due to the league’s size in terms of status and financial backing, the country’s premier players do not stick around for long. Lured by the contracts on offer in some of Europe’s bigger countries, it’s not unusual to see Danish players in the Premier League and Bundesliga in particular, although down the years Danish players have graced a number of Europe’s top competitions. FC Copenhagen are the big boys and dominant force in Denmark. Matches involving the team from the capital are characterised by low odds in favour of the reigning Danish champions from 2018/19. Midtjylland are currently the nearest rivals to FC Copenhagen in terms of pushing for the Danish Superliga title, with OB (Odense) and AaB (Aalborg) among other notable teams often to be found towards the top of the league.
The format of the Superliga season sees teams split into Championship and two Qualification Rounds (groups) midway through the campaign (after 26 rounds), which creates an intensity of competition. Ensure you check closely the status of the break-off rounds in order to fully appreciate team motivational aspects before adding sides to your betting coupon.
Goals are a factor too. The completed 2018/19 season saw an average of over 3 per game, which is well above the global average.
Danish Superliga History
Denmark has a proud footballing history, and the country has produced a number of prominent players down through the years. Football in Denmark has been played on an organized level since the late-nineteenth century, but it was 1913 before an organised top division was formed.
The capital city, Copenhagen, has produced most of the country’s most successful teams, such as FC Copenhagen, but Brøndby IF are another notable side, as are OB and AaB. All of these teams sit prominently when assessing Danish Superliga title odds.
In terms of famous players emanating from the country, there are many. Tottenham Hotspur’s Christian Eriksen is probably the star of the moment, but in years gone by, Peter Schmeichel and the Laudrup brothers of Brian and Michael were notable talents. All were inspirational in driving the country to its biggest footballing success to date: victory in the 1992 European Championships.
