Sport Return Date Odds

Andrew Hendrie:
When will sport return?

When will sport return? Thatโ€™s the million dollar question for punters worldwide and online bookmaker Ladbrokes has created a market for us to bet on.

Most sports have been suspended indefinitely all over the world, while big international competitions such as Euro 2020 and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics have been pushed back to next year.

Ladbrokes have established a couple of markets on the return of sport. We can bet on when we think Australian and American sports will come back, along with various soccer leagues in Europe.

The English Premier League is the $2.00 favourite to be the first soccer competition to return, ahead of the German Bundesliga ($4.75) and Ligue 1 in France ($8.00).

Thereโ€™s also a market for when the next EPL game will be played – before or after June 1. Currently after June 1 is the overwhelming favourite at $1.38.

The situation is much more dire in Italy, with the Serie A priced at $5.25 to resume after June 1.

In Australia, you can bet on what sport will return first out of the NRL, AFL, A-League and Super Rugby, along with single markets on what date the NRL and AFL will return.

NRL is the $2.00 favourite to return first, ahead of the A-League at $2.75.

Over in America, Ladbrokes has odds on when the NBA will return, along with which US competition will come back first.

At the time of writing, the MLB and NHL are equal $2.75 favourites, with the NBA ($3.75) and MLS ($5.50) following.
