Trump Props Are Abundant for Bettors

Trump Props Are Abundant for Bettors - Bovada Sportsbook

The increasingly volatile administration of U.S. President Donald Trump has produced a wealth of prop wagers, including questions on whether he’ll even finish out his term in office.

On the prop question asking whether Trump will complete a full term as President of the United States, the ‘Yes’ side is now the +120 underdog with ‘No’ listed as the -150 favorite.

Broken down into specifics, there are -110 odds that Trump will resign from office in his first term, with -120 odds on him being impeached by the House in his first term, and +350 odds on him being subsequently convicted by the Senate in that time frame. As well, there are +240 odds that Section 4 of the 25th Amendment will be invoked during Trump’s first term – that allows the Vice President to start the process of declaring the President unfit for office.

Since winning the Presidential election last November Trump’s administration has seen massive turnover – most notably strategist Steve Bannon, chief of staff Reince Priebus, and press secretary Sean Spicer, along with national security adviser Michael Flynn, and – after only 11 days – White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci. As well, several councils have quit en masse, including the Presidential arts council which resigned last week.

That last resignation came in the wake of Trump’s comments on the violence in Charlottesville, which was seen as a tepid response to the rally by White Supremacist groups. Trump has also drawn criticism for his handling of the North Korean threat, his attempt to ban transgender personnel from the military, and his heavy-handed approach to immigration.

 

Kelly, Sessions Also in Props Spotlight

Props centered on those still in Trump’s administration are available as well, including ‘will John Kelly be Trump’s Chief of Staff on January 1, 2018?’ and ‘Will Jeff Sessions be the Attorney General on January 1, 2018?’. For Kelly, ‘Yes’ is the -170 favorite, with ‘No’ a +140 underdog. For Sessions, ‘Yes’ is the -160 favorite, with the ‘No’ side the underdog of +120.

As well, with Trump’s approval rating falling, the Democratic Party is now set as the -150 favorite to win the 2020 Presidential Election, with the Republican Party listed at +120. Trump, though, is still the chalk at +250 on the ‘Who will win the 2020 Presidential Election’ odds, since he’s the incumbent and his opponent isn’t known. Democrats Elizabeth Warren (+700) and Bernie Sanders (+1200) follow, with Vice President Mike Pence listed at +1200 as well.
