Online sportsbooks have taken a huge hit since all major sports have been shut down. If the Bundesliga returns, it would make an immediate impact on an already limited market. They would be the top option to bet on as some of the only options on online sportsbooks are Russian table tennis and some NFL prop bets. More soccer betting would be welcomed by sports bettors globally.

There are currently a limited amount of odds being offered on online sportsbooks for the sport. The Belarusian Premier League is currently up and running and is also one of the top options on any online sportsbook.
