A professional sports bettor, Rufus Peabody, recently spoke to BetIndianaNews.com to discuss the coronavirus pandemic's impact on sports betting.  Much of it is obvious, no sports equals no wagering.  But with sports slowly but surely returning, the big question centers around home field/court advantage should games be held without fans.

"Different people are gonna have different thoughts about this, and there’s been lots of literature about home-field advantage over the last 20, 30 years, and still there isn’t really a consensus on where it comes from exactly. There’s familiarity, there’s referee bias, there’s travel distance and all that stuff.

"I think we’ll see less referee bias if there’s no fans in the stands, so in that way I think there’ll be less (of an advantage), but you still have travel, you still have things like that. Personally, I don’t think it’s going to make as much of a difference as a lot of people think. Even bad teams have home field advantage – or maybe I should say road-field disadvantage – it kind of cuts both ways, right? It’s going to be interesting to see, and it’ll give us a chance to look at what are those factors that are driving home-field advantage, because we don’t have a lot of samples of games with no fans."
