The four majors have started to stir the pot. The NHL is looking deeply into continuing its season. The NBA would’ve already started already if it were up to the players who were quoted as wanting to close the season out badly. MLB owners have already agreed to a plan that would start in July. It’s up to the players union to give it the thumbs up. As for the NFL, it’s slated to start as originally planned in early September. Also of note is that college football is yet to deviate from its originally planned schedule as well. Much time stands between now and then, so fingers crossed everything remains on course. This past weekend saw the UFC continue its live action without a fan in the stands, while sports bettors also got to dig into some NASCAR, The Bundesliga and golf odds for the first time in months.
