With the coronavirus pandemic shutting down sports, gamblers were without anything to bet on… until now! Believe it or not, you can place bets on the weather!

Coronavirus Has Sports Bettors Gambling On Weather

You’ve got to bet on something, right? Due to the coronavirus pandemic, with sports in a literal shut down, habitual gamblers have no games to bet on. Not only that, Las Vegas has more or less shut down all the casinos for the next 30 days.

What to do? Even for gamblers, apparently, challenging times call for creative measures!

To fill the void, online sportsbook Brovada is taking bets on the weather. Here are a few examples of the bets from yesterday:

What Will Be The Maximum Temperature In Jacksonville, FL On March 18

  • Over 83 Degrees Fahrenheit-120
  • Under 83 Degrees Fahrenheit-120

What Will Be The Maximum Temperature In Los Angeles, CA On March 18

  • Over 61 Degrees Fahrenheit-120
  • Under 61 Degrees Fahrenheit-120

Start studying weather statistics

If you bet on sports, you’ve undoubtedly spent hours studying players, statistics, analyzed the history of home versus away performance, performance against a particular team and in a particular venue and so much more.

Now, if you’re going to bet on the weather you’ve got some more studying to do! It’s time to start googling weather statistics, finding a free mini-meteorological study course and becoming something of a junior weatherperson. After all, the more informed you are, you’ll have an edge and the better your chances.

Of course, all that studying is going to cause some eyestrain. So to maintain your youthful appearance, you might start looking for creams, ointments, and treatments that reduce wrinkles under eyes!

Coronavirus and hurricane/severe weather prep are not the same

Many people are reacting to the coronavirus pandemic in the way they would prepare for a hurricane or severe weather situation such as widespread flooding.

However, emergency officials in Florida are reminding people there on what NOT to do, which is react as if they are preparing for a hurricane. This is a lesson the entire United States needs to learn right now.

  • Hoard supplies like toilet paper and disinfectants.
  • By unlimited amounts of bottled water.
  • Worry about losing power or utilities.
  • Fill up your bathtub.
