What sports can you legally bet on in the United States right now?

Let’s talk about ping pong. Better yet, let’s talk Table tennis because you never want to offend professionals who take this stuff very seriously.

And you know what is serious? The amount of money wagered by American players on professional table tennis in the Eastern European leagues.

If you asked me this question two weeks ago, what do people bet on? and the answer was table tennis, I would have asked you what planet you live on, said Johnny Avello, the head of DraftKings Sportsbook. I am absolutely shocked by the amount of money wagered on this sport.

Welcome to the world of legal sports betting in the United States in April, where the global coronavirus pandemic had shut down virtually all American sports as well as leagues across Europe, Asia and Australia.

Do you want to bet on golf, basketball, baseball, football, etc.? These markets are still open, but only for term bets.

Want action on something that can pay off immediately? Table tennis is the thing.

“We were very encouraged by the level of interest,” said Patrick Eichner at PointsBet Sportsbook. “There are a lot of matches every day, and you look at these players and the ridiculous things they can do in a game that most of us have played for recreational purposes, and that’s something else.”

The most competitive table tennis leagues are based in Russia, the Czech republic and Ukraine, and the matches can be broadcast live on setka.cup.com. American television networks have not yet picked up the phenomenon, but do not be surprised if this changes due to the lack of live sports programming currently.

Matches are best of five, and wagering options include who will win a given game, who will win a given game, and how many individual games will be played in a given game.

Typically, the over-under on games is 4.5 and the over / under on total points could be something like 82.5, said Avello.

Yes, table tennis is booming. But although American, Western European and Australian sports landscapes may currently look like vast wasteland (Australian football and rugby rules have been closed due to the virus), there are much more to bet than many people can realize.

the NFL Draft is two weekends away, and that’s where sports betting also sees an important action, but not at the level they see with ping pong.

PointsBet says it continues to take many steps on NFL betting, both those linked to the repechage and those linked to the individual over / under-players for the coming season (if there is one).

University football the lines for the key games and for the Heisman winner have been online for a while, and bets on future NBA Draft come and go.

March Madness may have been canceled, but there is still next year, and Baylor and Gonzaga are co-favorites at +800 to win the NCAA Championship.

Football and hockey in Belarus have been the mainstay of American sports betting, and basketball is being played or is about to resume in a number of remote locations: Australia, Argentina, Barbados, Belarus, Brazil, China , France, Great Britain, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Turkey and Russia.

the Chinese professional baseball the league is operational (and Wuhan is back to normal, offering hope to all shuttered Americans), and term bets are available on both NASCAR and Formula One.

Golf bets are also looking to the future as the schedule has been completely disorganized due to the Coronavirus. Same thing with tennis, where Wimbledon was canceled and it is not known if New York will be recovered enough to organize the US Open in September as usual.

Football leagues are operational in Algeria, Belarus, Bolivia, Cameroon, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Fiji, Ghana, Hong Kong, Nicaragua, Nigeria, Singapore, South Africa South and Uruguay, and we all have the 2022 World Cup looking forward to.

The horses are still running at Gulfstream park in Florida and several other tracks around the world and you can bet on all of them at TVG and FanDuel Racebook. the Kentucky derby will not take place before September 5. (Heck, he can compete in Game 7 of the NBA Finals for everything we know.)

esports and virtual sports have their niche audience playing regularly, and when it comes to niche sports, the following have all been approved by the New Jersey CEO and may soon find their way to a legal American sports book:

  • Lawn darts
  • Indian Premier League Cricket
  • First level handball (Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine)
  • Billiards
  • First level volleyball (Turkey and Russia)

And then we have darts, which also moves the books. And who wouldn’t want to spend some time in a crowded arena watching players try Triple 20s while drinking beer and competing for the main prizes?

When will the big sports leagues be back?

Listen, friends, the world of conventional sport will eventually come back to life.

Yes, this waiting game is excruciating, and with Coronovirus forecasts changing from day to day, all that the big professional sports leagues can do is watch, wait and make as many emergency plans as possible.

But suppose the NBA Final will eventually be played. the Milwaukee Bucks, Los Angeles Clippers and the Los Angeles Lakers are still the favorites, but who knows which injured players may be ready to compete, the NBA will not make the playoffs until July. Heck, the brooklyn fillets might be good enough if Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant are available, and they are currently listed at +6600 on DraftKings.

The defending champion Toronto Raptors, which will Marc Gasol back at full power, are +1800. Let’s not forget that they currently have the NBA’s longest winning streak in four games.

Major baseball league could end up playing a big part of his Arizona season, even playing seven-game doubles, but October will finally come, and someone will be the champion. Boston Red Sox fans can get their team at +3500 now.

in the NFL, the New York Jets will always be the same Old Jets until they win a championship for the first time since 1969, but they have quite a quarterback in Sam Darnold, and you can bet on the over / under on his touchdown passes at 23.5.

Basically, all player accessories for guys in the skill position see good action from the pros and joes, said Eichner.

Jameis Winston led the NFL with 5,109 yards last season but was replaced in Tampa Bay by Tom brady, and he will end up signing somewhere (you can bet on that legally too). Finally, it will have upper / lower overtaking footage.

the New York Giants will one day realize that the key to their future success is the functioning of Barkley Saquon, which gained just 1,003 yards on the ground last season. His courage rushed on / under next season is 1,300. And now that Eli Manning is gone and a new coach is in place, maybe Big Blue will go back to what worked so well in the past.

Meanwhile…

Since many of us spend time watching TV, there are free bets available on DraftKings for the results of Real housewives, Excellent chef and Shark aquarium.

DraftKings even offers free bets in which you try to predict whether the forecast for the day, in terms of temperature, will be an over or under.

Look, not everyone has a ton of disposable income right now, said Avello, but people can still play for free and not think about what’s going on. We were getting as creative as ever.

Like a well-played table tennis shot, Avello gives a tough situation a good spin.

Hang in there, people. The world we know and bet on will come back. The over / under when that day could come is about as certain as where the next roll of good toilet paper will come from. Right now it’s probably stuck in a truck on an Interstate, but somebody will eventually unpack it and sell it. Charmin is not going, okay?

So lets get through this. And if betting is your thing, there is no shortage of options.
