Adding eSports To Content Lineup

You knew that it would only be a matter of time before online sportsbooks started listing betting lines for eSports simulation games. NASCAR actually got things started a few weeks back with simulated NASCAR Cup Series events. There was also a players competition in NBA 2K20.

eSports have taken the world over during the recent “COVID-19 Era”. Our promise to our followers here at Scores and Stats is to always remain current, continuing to evolve with the times.

With that being said, will now carry Field Level Media’s entire eSports wire, where you will find news, players, and events in and around the eSports world. Really, the list is endless when it comes to the content we will now provide. FLM say they are, “on the forefront of the booming esports content landscape”. We believe them and will ride the wave with them.

There will be coverage on almost every game that has followers. You’ll obviously see coverage for Madden, NBA2K and FIFA, but other titles covered include Call of Duty, League of Legends, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch, and much, much more. Watch for it in the very near future.

Now, you can bet on simulated games in the NFL and MLB. Since it does not look like live games in the NBA, NHL or MLB will be played anytime soon because of the coronavirus, a few top-rated online sportsbooks have turned to a simulated version to take their place.

As far as simulated NFL games, Madden NFL 20 is used for the actual betting results.

The top showdown in the AFC at one online book pits the Kansas City Chiefs on the road against the New England Patriots. The simulated game will consist of 2019 team rosters with the Patriots favored by 2.5 points at home. The total line for this game had been set at 47.5 points.

Moving to the NFC on that same particular betting board, the Green Bay Packers went on the road as three-point underdogs against the San Francisco 49ers. The total line for that matchup was 45.5. The Las Vegas Raiders will make their home debut as a PICK against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where the total set was at 45.5.

The top MLB simulated game on the betting board at this same online book is Game 1 of a three-game set between the Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox. Since the simulated game is using last season’s rosters, the Indians can still send Clay Buchholz to the mound as their starter even though the right hander is now with Toronto.Bet and Watch NBA2k20 Simulation on

Boston is a -110 home favorite with Tanner Houck as its starter. The total line for this game is set at 10 runs.

How well these games go over with sports bettors remains to be seen. Unfortunately, this is the closest thing we have to live betting action right now.

Another Madden NFL 20 event is a Celebrity Tournament that is set to take place in the coming week. ESPN just released the bracket and it features head-to-head matchups between NFL players such as Stefon Diggs and Marquise Brown. Other competitors include Snoop Dogg and Katie Nolan.

The opening round is scheduled for Monday, April 20 and it will continue on ESPN digital and social platforms. However, this competition is just for fun and for charity since it does not look like any of the online books are taking action on this event.
