The Covid-19 surge that’s throwing professional and college sports schedules into disarray may also disrupt holiday-season plans for sports bettors -- unless they are really, really into table tennis.

The National Basketball Association said Sunday it postponed five games this week. At least three National Football League games for Week 15 were postponed. The National Hockey League has had at least 20 games postponed this season, including Saturday’s match between the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens. Six Premier League matches were scratched this weekend, and officials have called a meeting to discuss preemptive postponement of future matches, Athletic UK reported.
