With the majority of the planet sequestered due to the coronavirus outbreak, binge watching Netflix and playing video games has become the thing to do. Gaming is actually cool and safe since players are stationed at a computer console in the basement of their parent’s home. That’s so stereotypical and incorrect in this instance. The NBA has gotten into the virtual act, as have a number of other sports, bringing glorious wagering opportunities to a public starved of competitive action. There are plenty of esports games and leagues on tap this week with a few other options to wager on.
With nearly the entire country on lockdown, simulated sporting events have become popular in recent weeks. Betting on sports sims allows fans to join in the fun of an actual event from games like Madden NFL 20, NBA2K20, MLB The Show 20 and NHL20. It’s about as realistic as we’re going to get while everyone hunkers down.
Round 2 of the Madden NFL 20 Eight Days of Maddness continues on Monday with four games on the slate. The Green Bay Packers advanced with a 34-13 win over Detroit and they are a 6.5-point favorite against Atlanta to move on. Check out the games all week at Twitch.tv and place your wagers at online sportsbooks.
