Clinton, Trump Odds Set for Third Debate

Clinton, Trump Odds Set for Third Debate - Bovada Sportsbook

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump decidedly did not shake hands prior to the second presidential debate back on October 9, so will they be less frosty at the outset of the third presidential debate on the UNLV campus on Wednesday night? Props suggest it’s a tossup.

There are -120 odds on Clinton and Trump both shaking hands and not shaking hands before the debate begins on Wednesday night. The candidates did shake hands prior to the first debate back on September 26, but the campaign has become increasingly hostile since then.

Trump has even gone as far as suggesting the results of November’s election won’t be legitimate, and the Over/Under on the number of times the Republican nominee says ‘rig’ or ‘rigged’ on Wednesday night is set at 4.5 – and the Over and the Under are both -120 on the prop. The Over/Under for Trump saying ‘tremendous’ is listed at 8.5, with the Under the -200 favorite. For ‘Make America Great Again’ it’s 2 (Under -135).


What Colors will They Wear?

Trump wore a blue tie at the first presidential debate and a red tie at the second one. Red is the favorite to be his tie color again on Wednesday night at -200, with Blue listed at +300. If Trump mixes it up this week Yellow/Gold is the third favorite at +400, with Black at +2000.

Clinton wore a red jacket at the first presidential debate and a dark blue jacket at the second one. For the third presidential debate on Wednesday night it’s Blue set as the -150 favorite to be Clinton’s jacket color once again, with Black at +750, White at +500, and Yellow/Gold at +1000. Clinton going back to a red jacket is the second favorite choice at +500.

NBC led the way in viewership at the first debate with just over 18 million, but showed Sunday Night Football instead when the second debate was on – that let CBS lead the way with almost 16.5 million viewers. NBC leads the way as the -200 favorite to have the most total viewers again on Wednesday, with ABC set at +175, CBS at +500, and FOX back at +900.

Overall the first presidential debate had over 80 million viewers, while the second one declined to just over 60 million viewers. The Over/Under for viewers for the third debate is set at 63.6 million, with the Under the -200 favorite and the Over the +150 odds underdog.

And finally, with the actual election fast approaching it’s Clinton that has moved to a large -500 favorite on the odds to be the next president of the United States. Trump is at +350.
