We’ve gone over all of the prop wagers and have made picks for the electoral college in the toughest to handicap states. The only thing we must do now is choose which candidate, Republican “Don’t Call Me Orangutan” Trump, or Joe “Wind Energy Rocks” Biden. Let’s get to it so you can keep on making your bets against their U.S. Politics odds!
Political News: Odds Momentum Favors Trump to Repeat
U.S. Presidential Election
- When: November 3, 2020
- Where: United States
2020 U.S. Presidential Election Odds
- Donald J. Trump +125
- Joe Biden -165
- Kamala Harris +20000
- Mike Pence +27500
- Any other candidate +50000
Before making the pick, it’s important to note that the any other candidate play offers overlay odds. Harris and Pence offer underlay odds. Both should be +50000. But the any other candidate could happen.
Let’s say that not all votes are counted by Friday next week. That would be November 6. What happens if the votes aren’t properly counted until after January 21? Nancy Pelosi could become President of the United States. The Electoral College must name a successor before Trump’s term ends at exactly January 20, 2020 at noon eastern time.
So, yes, there is a way where Scary Nancy could end up sitting in the Oval Office. Trump and his cohorts talking incessantly about it possibly happening wasn’t a conspiracy theory or joke. Will it happen? No, it won’t. But people shouldn’t win the lottery either and they do. At +50000, you mustn’t wager too much money to make a fortune.
Back to a more realistic scenario, either Joe Biden or Donald Trump should win the Presidency next Tuesday. Of the two candidates, one appears headed for glory while the other appears ready to head back to the basement.
In the past three to four days, The Donald has made a major move towards winning this thing. How? Although Trump will say it’s because he’s “outworked Joe”, and that’s true, he has, the Sleepy One has nobody to blame but himself.
Trump’s best move during his campaign was to allow Joe Biden to dig his own grave. Biden said during last Thursday’s debate that he wanted to “phase out” the “oil industry”. Although at first glance, the statement seems harmless, a quick look at the numbers reveals why Biden blew it by even talking about phasing out the oil and gas industry.
Trump offered +160 odds last week. After Biden made the statement, Orange Dude’s odds plummeted to +125. The bleeding has only just begun. With a full 7 days before the election, Trump could end up becoming the favorite, which is why if you wish to wager on the U.S. Presidential Election, you had better soon.
The problem Biden has is that he’s on record as saying he’s against fracking. The oil and natural gas industry, supposedly, accounts for nearly 10.3 million jobs and around 8% of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product.
The U.S. is now the top oil and natural gas producer in the world. There’s no green plan that can account for that, and, you had better be certain The Donald is making sure everyone knows. The stats might not be correct, but Sleepy Joe has failed to get past the remark. In American politics, that should doom him at voting windows.
Trump looks like a solid play to win another four years. He’s got momentum heading into the final week, so much so, that “how do I change my vote” trended on Google. If you’re playing the U.S. Presidential Election, it might be wise to back the underdog moving towards the favorite’s end zone.
