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 BetOn­, 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.”
