Dr. Fauci To Wear Face Mask When Throwing First Pitch

  • Yes -750
  • No +450

There is no question about it as to why his MLB odds are favored to wear a mask.

Since the start of the pandemic, he has been stressing that everyone and anyone needs to wear a mask. Being that he is one of the main officials enforcing this rule, it is hard to believe that he will break this rule on national television.

Not only would he be breaking the rules but he would receive endless amounts of backlash if he does not.

Bettors can expect Dr. Fauci to be wearing a mask and enjoy the easiest money that they will ever come by. Take the heavy juice, and see an easy return on Thursday.
