Offshore Sportsbooks Are Now Offering Betting Lines On The Weather

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, sports are on hold for the foreseeable future as leagues and entities do their part to help prevent large gatherings in hopes of promoting social distancing, which is the best method for slowing the spread of the pandemic and flattening the curve to relieve pressure from our healthcare infrastructure.

There are futures and props for NFL free agency and the draft, but with the expectation of no sports action until at best the summer, the daily routine of firing off bets seems like it won’t be back anytime soon.
