Posted on July 02, 2020 by Alina Jovia

There is simply no denying that 2019 was an exceptional year for sports and sports betting. Heck, this is something that you could say pretty much every year. It seems like the bar only continues to rise every year. That being said, 2020 promises new experiences with many upcoming major events and tournaments. Even with the COVID-19 virus out there looming, there are still some great events on the ticket and many past events that fans can reminisce about. 

 If you are a betting person, you can take a look at some of the best odds here.

Take a look back at what the New year has brought fans so far and what it still has to offer going forward.

The Return Of The Notorious

The start of the year had high hopes, as McGregor, a born fighter, was slated to get back in the octagon in the first month of the year.

By the end of the season, Griffin had rushed for 867 yards.
