Colorado bettors’ infatuation with table tennis is one of the craziest stories in the sports betting world Frank Schwab, Yahoo Sports · June 5, 2021 at 8:00 pm Jackson Wieger is betting on table tennis matches. Yes, pingpong. It’s happening halfway around the world in Russia. It’s possibly fixed. Wieger can’t watch the matches he bets on unless he finds a heavily delayed stream on the internet. He doesn’t know much about any of the participants, and when he started betting table tennis he didn’t even fully understand how it was scored… He’s not alone. Far from it. In Colorado, $8.8 million was bet on table tennis in March, more than double what was bet on MMA. Back in January, the figure was $11.8 million, more than was bet on college football bowl games that month and more than was bet on the NHL.
