Updated April 28th at 7:14 PM ET: Added odds on North Korea’s next leader.

Almost every major sports league has been either suspended or canceled indefinitely because of the coronavirus outbreak worldwide. COVID-19 also has people wondering about what will happen with this year’s Tokyo Olympics.

If you miss the enjoyment you get out of sports and want to make some money, fear not, we compiled a list of sports, current events and props you can still bet on.

What we’re covering here:

Sports Props and Futures

MLB

MLB Opening Day will be delayed to mid-May at the earliest. You can bet on when the next MLB game will be played and the futures market is also on offer, including Division, Pennant and World Series odds and all the usual player futures. You can also bet on how many games will be played in the 2020 MLB season.

NBA, WNBA and NCAA Basketball

ESPN moved up the release of ‘The Last Dance,’ a 10-part documentary series about the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls, to Sunday nights from April 19th to May 17th and you can bet on it and make some money while enjoying it, as BetOnline released a massive list of prop bets for the premiere episode and the entire series.

Looking at NBA Futures can keep you entertained while waiting for the league to resume play. You can bet on who will win the NBA Championship, NBA MVP and NBA Rookie of the Year awards.

BetOnline now offers NBA Draft props. You can bet on who will be the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th picks. They also released 2020 NBA Finals game odds for each contest of a potential seven-game series between the Lakers and Bucks (off the board).

NFL free agency and the trade market have given us plenty to talk about these last few days and plenty to bet on.

Division, Conference and Super Bowl LV futures are all available, as well as props on who will be the starting quarterback for teams like the Patriots, Bears and Chargers and the free agency destinations of Andy Dalton, Jameis Winston and Cam Newton.

Cricket

Note: Recently postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

The Pakistan Super League playoffs are in full swing. The usual four-match playoff format has been done away with to save time and now it went back to the classic two semifinal and final format to decide the title winner.

Cricket is one of the easiest sports to play and it doesn’t take long to learn the rules if you want to learn how to follow it.

Esports

I don’t know about you but I love video games. You might be new to watching and betting on Esports, like me, but there are tournaments for games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, League of Legends, Overwatch, Rocket League, StarCraft, StarCraft II still taking place.

Futsal

Note: Recently postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

Futsal is FIFA’s officially approved small-sided format of soccer. There are five players on each team and it is very fun to watch because it is a fast, intense and technical sport.

The small space of the court requires players to play quicker and make faster decisions. They only have a split second to decide what to do with the ball before finding themselves in high pressure.

This sport encourages players to be creative. The court is smaller and they get much more touches on the ball, so they will try things that they would never do on if they were playing soccer. You will see some crazy 1 vs. 1 moves, passes and combinations. Falcão, Ricardinho, Kike are sure to go down as three of the greatest to have played futsal.

The Russian SuperLiga will have some games in the coming days. Check their odds at BetOnline, you won’t regret it.
