Novelty Betting: Special Bets on Donald Trump
Special Donald Trump Betting Markets
Donald Trump may not go down in the annals of history as the finest US President in history but he will surely be remembered as the finest salesman.
His State of the Union Address, at the end of January, was draped in self appreciation but while using it as a marketing tool, there was an underlining truth – that being the US economy is starting to flower and it will soon be in full bloom.
There’s no better vote-winner than American’s having money in their bill-fold to buy a bigger truck, a more powerful gun and better health insurance. For this reason alone, the 71-year-old looks a cracking bet to retain the Presidency and lead his country for a second and final term.
When is the next US Presidential election?
Most of the major bookies are already betting on the 2020 US Presidential Election which will take place on November 3rd 2020.
Donald Trump is 7/4 (2.75) with Coral and Betvictor while, if you have an account with them, you can get 15/8 (2.88) over at Betfred. The downfall of this type of politics bet is the 30+ months your funds will be tied-up for.
Then again, there is also plenty that can go wrong for ‘the Donald’ in the same period. A visit to the ‘Politics’ betting section of Paddy Power web site comes up with all kinds of career damaging scenarios and while some are ridiculous – such as ‘the White House to confirm that Donald Trump has had a hole-in-one while playing golf in 2018’ – a number of Donald Trump bets are valid and viable.
Interestingly, and this comes on the back of recent developments whereby two former model/porn stars hope to come forward and tell of their affairs with Trump in the mid-to-late 2000’s a time when he was married to current wife Melania, so scandal is top of the list.
The Divorce Stakes
Paddy Power bookmakers think that this latest bout of accusations could lead to the First Lady leaving the President and filing for divorce before November 8th of this year. However, their 16/1 betting odds quote seems dismissive of it actually happening.
Boylesports is surely the better place to shop if you are in the belief the Slovenian-born model, 24 years younger than her husband, will divorce him.
They may only go 10/1 but under their terms a divorce can take place anytime up until the end of Donald Trump’s first term in office.
Donald Trump The Movie?
Considerably shorter odds, at 5/1 with Paddy Power, is the scary prospect of a ‘sex tape’ being leaked online.
Naturally all of this, as it nearly did with Bill Clinton in the aftermath of his affair with Monica Lewinski coming to light, could lead to the Commander in Chief being impeached.
If you think that will happen during Trump’s first term in office you can get 4/9 (1.44) with the Irish firm. It is 13/8 (2.63) that he does get impeached for any matter/reason.
