I put a decent amount of money at 40 to 1 for Nix to win the A-League this year near start of season, was standing to have a very nice payout if we kept up our form (could cash out at any point, likely wouldn't of had the balls to hold the full bet if we actually made the major semi final or particularly GF). Anyway, when I read NZ had banned entry into the country without 14 days isolation I instantly cashed out for only a smallish profit before the market caught up as we are likely the team most affected. Not sure if I thought it through or if I made the right choice, but I'll have some regret if the Nix go on to win this year - still want them to win though!

US sports are the way to bet, especially Basketball. No draws.

NFL football sounds like a great game if you are into live betting and understand the game - I have no idea what's going on though, so will not bet on it.

Regarding football, I don't know the math behind it but I had a friend years ago who successfully bet sports for a living (mostly the EPL) and one of his rules was never bet on the draw.

Surprised no markets are yet offering a line on when a vaccine will be found.

Surely some English bookmakers will have some odds on that?
Usually you can bet on absolute crap like when such and such royal will be married etc...

My favourite part: "Bovada, a sportsbook company based in Costa Rica, began taking bets on the maximum temperatures in various cities around the country."
