The outbreak of the coronavirus has basically shut down the sports betting industry for the foreseeable future. Most land-based sportsbooks in casinos have closed. Online casinos with Sportsbooks continue to scramble for betting options to fill the void. The dire situation for avid bettors has led to a greater interest in all the political prop bet odds posted. Popular betting sites such as Bovada, Top Bet, and MyBookie.ag, have all updated their political betting odds in recent days.
How To Shop Political Prop Odds at Top-Rated Online Casinos With Sportsbooks
Each site offers some different variations in the props on their board. A new one on the list even questions whether or not the general election will take place on November 3. All the posted odds heavily favor YES.
Donald Trump is still the heavy favorite to represent the Republicans in the presidential election as the incumbent. Joe Biden has suddenly emerged as the clear favorite to earn the Democratic nomination. The two frontrunners will now square off against one another in the general election for president.
The Top US Casinos With Sportsbooks has Trump and Biden neck-and-neck in its prop bet option to win the 2020 election at -105 odds.
This is a dramatic reversal for Trump. His odds to win actually increased when he was first acquitted in his recent impeachment trial. His big selling point was the economy but that is working against his reelection chances right now.
Top Bet still has Trump listed as a -135 favorite with Vice President Joe Biden at +100 even-money odds. MyBookie has Trump listed at -140 odds to win with Biden at +100. The current numbers reflect the betting money coming in. The book’s job is to use the posted odds as a hedge to even out the money on both sides of the bet. Given the recent trends, all the betting value turns to Biden at this point in time.
Another common prop covers which party will win the general election. Bovada has identical -115 odds for Republicans or Democrats. Top Bet leans towards the Republicans as -120 favorites with even-money +100 odds for the Democrats. MyBookie has posted odds of -135 for Republicans and -105 odds for Democrats.
