After COVID-19 had shutdown the NBA season like dominoes the rest of the sports world came to an immediate halt. For sports fans and bettors alike, this put quite a damper on not only March Madness but the foreseeable future of the NHL, MLB, MLS, and the previously mentioned NBA. Each of those leagues has “suspended” their seasons. NetBet sports betting book has some pretty interesting odds to check out.
However, Bovada Sportsbook is here to scratch your sports betting itch! They have put out a futures bet for when the NBA season will officially return. The options for folks looking to put some money down are “Before April 15, 2020” (+160) or “On or After April 15, 2020” (-230). Now, for those interested in placing a bet on these lines, it might be important to note that the NCAA has canceled their Outdoor Track and Field Championships, which don’t take place until June 10-13. I know that would influence my bet!
If that isn’t enough to satisfy your betting craving, Bovada is also offering a bet on which professional sports league in the U.S. will return first. The options are NBA/MLB (+200), NHL (+210), and then Major League Soccer (+375). It will be very interesting what does happen to the sports world due to Coronavirus as fans around the world sit at home with little to watch.
