The growing threat of Corona Virus caused sports commissioners across all major North American Sports to postpone their respective leagues. On the night of Wednesday, March 11th, Adam Silver, commissioner of the NBA was the first to announce that his league would postpone all games. As Thursday morning rolled around, every NCAAB Conference Tournament was canceled while the MLS, NHL, and MLB followed suit.
So when can we expect sports to start up again? What is the plan moving forward? For starters, Rob Manfred, the commissioner of the MLB announced that Major League Baseball will begin at least two weeks after the scheduled start date of March 26th. That gives us at least four weeks until we’ll have sports to watch and bet on.
In the meantime, the PGA announced that they will continue their play with the only restriction being that fans won’t be allowed in. Additionally, NASCAR and the XFL will continue racing but with no fans.
You’re probably all wondering what our website, Lynq Sports is going to do in the meantime? Well, here’s what you can expect from our crew over the next month:
- We are about 2/3 of the way through our 30 Teams in 30 Days articles in the MLB. We will continue releasing those throughout the next couple of weeks as planned.
- We will continue our coverage of XFL games and keep bringing you our best bets.
- If the Champion’s League is still on, we will have betting previews for each game coming up.
- Both Podcasts, Squaring Up the Sharp & Chicago Plus the Points will resume as scheduled.
- Our Weekly betting show, Bruch, Bets, & the Boys will resume as scheduled.
- And finally, we will be testing the waters with UFC and PGA betting angles.
It’s going to be an interesting period coming up for Lynq Sports but our team is ready to pivot and dominate whatever challenges we face. We’re still your home for the best sports betting information so you know we’ll find something for you to bet and make money on.
