THE BETS ARE ON
Politics, like sports, attract wagers.
“President Trump is the favorite to win in 2020 at 7-5 odds (+140), meaning, a $100 bet would profit $140 if Trump wins. Beto O’Rourke, at 10-1, has become one of the most popular bets since the midterms with the fourth highest bet count ‘and catching steam,’” reports Dave Mason, the “Sportsbook” brand manager for BetOnline.ag, a very busy online outlet.
“Action is pouring in on Joe Biden,” Mr. Mason continues, citing the former vice president’s recent claim that he was the most” “qualified” person to be president as a reason for the jump.
“Mr. Biden’s 2020 presidential odds improved from 16-1 to 12-1 and he has received the third-highest bet count behind Donald Trump and Kamala Harris,” says Mr. Mason. “Should Biden win the 2020 election, a $100 bet would profit $1,200.”
