Due to the ongoing global pandemic, and a rise in Covid-19 cases, some of these sporting fixtures may be rescheduled to be played at another time. Last week, the NFL postponed 3 games due to a surge in Covid-19 cases among staff and players. However, on a brighter note, the NBA commissioner Adam Silver has confirmed there are no plans right now to pause their season.

From all of us at Bovada, we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays! If you are looking to have some festive fun this Christmas, then be sure to check out Bovada Casino’s games where you can play and win real money.
