To be exact the shock that gamblers were feeling resembled nuclear wasteland survivors.  COVID-19 shut down sports and individuals that were used to every day action had nothing.  In like manner sportsbooks were down for the count.  Hourly betting on sports online boards were blank.  First exotic games from exotic lands were offered to the wagering public.  No sale!  With nothing to lose the books decided on a whim to try sports simulations.  Handle exploded and the rest is history.  In this situation accident was turned into design.  Sports sims are here to stay!

What are Sports Sims?

Specifically, sports sims are video games that you have likely played, seen played, or advertised.  The most famous of them all is Madden NFL 20.  Sports sims are designed to reflect real life results in a video game format.  For example, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs should dominate the Jacksonville Jaguars in Madden NFL 20.  By combining a host of statistical data with subjective ratings in numerous different skill categories players are recreated.  To illustrate Mahomes will have great mobility and rank as a dominant quarterback.  Chicago’s Mitchell Trubisky will frustrate with inconsistency as in real life.  

Owing to that meticulous design do Madden NFL 20 results resemble actual games.  No, the Jaguars are not going to be Super Bowl bound.  New England will struggle without game breaking playmakers.  Green Bay will be too reliant upon Aaron Rodgers.  And the Giants and Jets will be rendered helpless.  It follows that Jameis Winston will be an interception machine. San Francisco will be extremely solid and balanced.  Yet lacking that one weapon to put a game away.  This is the genius of Madden NFL 20.  As a consequence, gamblers and sportsbooks can trust its reliable quality.
