It’s back to some of the usual betting options this week as we wait for other sports and leagues to resume play. Bundesliga got the ball rolling on the pitch and other major European soccer leagues will soon follow the lead. The English Premier League, La Liga and Serie A all have restart dates later this month. The return to the playing field has been slow with all necessary precautions being taken. It remains to be seen how the civil unrest across the globe will affect things. Esports and simulated games are back to being a hot betting topic at online sportsbooks with those taking place every day, supplying bettors with numerous wagering opportunities. Let’s take a look at a few options on this week’s betting schedule.
Bayern Munich maintained its lead in the Bundesliga standings with a 5-0 win over Fortuna Dusseldorf on Saturday, their second straight clean sheet and fourth consecutive triumph since the league resumed play. Bayern is off until the weekend but three matches dot the slate during the week. On Monday FC Cologne takes on RB Leipzig, Wednesday’s match has Werder Bremen taking on Eintracht Frankfurt and on Friday SC Freiburg battles Borussia Monchengladbach.
Bundesliga became the first major European league to resume play with EPL, La Liga and Serie A ready to hit the pitch later this month.
