Unvaccinated NBA players offer betting value
As training camps started this week, several high-profile players refused to disclose if they’re vaccinated against COVID-19. According to the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA), over 90% of their players are fully vaccinated. ESPN later reported that the NBA reached a 95% vaccination threshold following news that unvaccinated NBA players won’t be paid for every game missed due to local COVID-19 mandates.
This creates a situation where these players could contract COVID-19, spread and fuel breakthrough infections (infect vaccinated players). New York City and San Francisco restrict unvaccinated players from playing in indoor arenas which could result in players skipping games to avoid these ordinances.
Provided these players remain unvaccinated, crypto bettors have a golden opportunity to capitalize on the Nets’ 41 home games and the Warriors‘ 12 home games. Furthermore, if a COVID-19 outbreak does occur within these teams, it will undoubtedly result in dramatic odds swings for games and even the title.

Trump leads the odds in 2024 presidential bid
Former President Donald Trump has hinted at the possibility of a 2024 bid for a second term in the White House. A majority of Republicans still support Trump leading their party, according to polls. Trump is currently the favorite to win the presidency according to odds available at crypto sportsbook Sportsbet (review, American bettors are geo-blocked).
In recent weeks, Trump has maneuvered to firmly establish himself as the predominant and most powerful figure in Republican politics through federal and state campaigns and endorsing several secretary of state candidates.
A CNN poll released in September detailed that 63% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say they want Trump to be the leader of the Republican Party.
