Weekly Sports Betting Schedule for the week of June 1-5. Sports betting odds at the online sportsbook.
Word should come soon as to when the NBA will return to the hardwood. It’s looking like LeBron James and company will be back in action at some point in July with a fanless tournament held at Disney World in Florida being a possibility. An 82-game MLB schedule has been put on the table by the owners, but the players union wants nothing to do with it should its issues with player salaries not be remedied. It continues to be all systems go for the NFL with minicamps still expected to be held in June, and it’s starting to look like college football will also go as planned regardless of whether students are on campus and class is in session. The NHL will be back on frozen pond no later than July 1 with a 24-team tournament-style playoff crowing a champion in the fall. The PGA tour also returns in the middle of June. This is all great news for online sportsbooks! Fingers crossed a second wave of the coronavirus doesn’t rear its ugly head with numerous states opening back up to the public over the last week. Here’s a look at the offerings for the workweek spanning June 1-5.
