This year has been a hard one not only for sports but also for the sports betting industry. The pandemic has affected sports that were quite a shock to everyone. The cancelations of many major sports events like the NBA, the EPL, and the IPL never really happened before this year and the sports betting industry just wasn’t ready for it.
March was when many sports events started to take a break because of the lockdowns implemented by different countries worldwide and since then, betting companies had a hard time looking for betting odds that they could offer to their customers.
It was only in June when sports started to make a comeback. Major sports events like the EPL, the NBA, the IPL, the Championships League, and many other more started to make announcements that will be able to push through with this year’s seasons. Even the Big Bash League is also set to return and now, you can easily look for Big Bash League live odds on many sportsbooks.
Since then, there have been reports that the sports betting industry is now recovering from the negative impacts that the pandemic has given in the first and 2nd quarter of the year. Recently, a report has also been released by Data Bridge Market Research that sports betting businesses would even continue to grow until 2027.
