Not All Bets Are Off
It's been a rough season for sports gambling. First COVID-19 came for the NBA — on March 11, the National Basketball Association announced it would postpone its season. The next day, the National Hockey League, Major League Soccer, and Major League Baseball all announced the same. Other major sporting events have been canceled or delayed all over the nation, events like the Kentucky Derby and Indianapolis 500. So, what's a nation that has increasingly embraced online sports betting to do? Get creative, of course. From sports that are normally ignored to reality TV competitions and other stranger-than-fiction fascinations, the online betting world — like much else in the coronavirus era — is morphing into something heretofore unthinkable.
