Is there a light at the end of the tunnel? Or is that the COVID-19 freight train ready to strike again? There have been discussions about some sports resuming with NASCAR and Bundesliga having return dates this month. UFC 249 is scheduled to take place over the weekend. And the PGA Tour, English Premier League and La Liga have outlined plans for a return in June. Things are starting to look up from a sports and betting standpoint, but we’re not there yet. In the meantime we have an array of betting options on the docket this week from table tennis to darts, and esports to simulated games. Let’s take a look at some of the options available.
It’s not simulated or a virtual event. Nope, the men’s Golden State Tour and the women’s Cactus Tour have real golfers competing for real money on a real course. Golf course operations in Arizona have been deemed an essential service and all necessary precautions are being taken. The men head to the Legacy Golf Resort in Phoenix for the aptly named Legacy Classic this week. A consistent performer on the Korn Ferry Tour, Dylan Wu opened as co-favorite with KK Limbhasut on the odds posted at BookMaker.eu. The three-day tournament starts Monday.
The women are in Fountain Hills for the Desert Challenge with last week’s winner Mina Harigae a slight favorite on the odds board over two-time winner Sophia Popov. The women will also play 54 holes over three days beginning on Wednesday.
The good thing about simulated sporting events is that players don’t get tired and you can play games every day. Oh, hey, guess what? There are simulated games in every sport all week long. In a recent poll conducted by BookMaker.eu, over 55 percent said Madden NFL20 was their favorite sim game to bet on. So in response to that another tournament was born. The Madden NFL20 Throw a Dog a Bone tournament continues this week. Tournament odds as well as spreads and totals for each game are available at BookMaker.eu.
