It looks like things in the sports world are going to get worse before they get better. COVID-19 claimed a few more victims this week with Saturday’s Dubai World Cup horse race postponed until next year. Still, there are a number of sporting events taking place around the globe this weekend with odds and lines offered at online sportsbooks. Some research is required to properly wager on soccer matches and rugby games, but at least it’s something to tide the betting public over until things return to a sense of normalcy, whenever that may be.
Australia is a big contributor to what little sports competition remains. The A-League, which is the highest level of competition in Australia, continues with matches even though the season has been disrupted. Due to travel restrictions certain teams are unable to make their scheduled events and all the stadiums are closed to the general public. The games go on and the A-League supplies us with several matches this week with odds posted at BookMaker.eu.

The ESL Pro League with teams competing in Counter Strike: Global Offensive has matches set up nearly every day from now until early April. Season 11 was modified due to the global coronavirus pandemic. Instead of playing in front of a live audience, gamers and teams will compete online. Additionally the field was split into an 18-team European event and a six-team North American tournament.
Europe and North America will crown separate champions with the North American teams starting play this week. European teams began competition last week.
Flashpoint, another top esports league competing against the ESL Pro League, enacted similar online gaming measures for its players. The current season of CS:GO will be played online. There are spreads, totals and moneyline odds available at BookMaker.eu for all games on this week’s schedule.

The coronavirus scare will eventually pass and the sporting world will return to normal. Maybe not the same as we knew before the pandemic, but normal in that the games will be played. With the NFL starting its new year recently and free agency in the works we saw a number of players switch teams. As a result Super Bowl LV odds surfaced with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers now a player. Adding Tom Brady can do that for a team.
We fully expect to have a Major League Baseball season, though it’s likely going to be much shorter than the typical 162 games. Still, World Series odds, as well as National League and American League pennant odds, are available at BookMaker.eu.
