Unless you have spent the last four years in a box you will know that President Trump is about to go up against Joe Biden next week in the US Election. Everyone has an opinion on the former reality TV star but in the poker world we also bet on it.
It is hard to find anyone in poker who does not have a bet for or against Trump, some of them were placed as long as four years ago. It is also the only thing you are going to hear about on Poker Twitter for the next week (with the occasional Polk vs Negreanu distraction) so you may as well take a financial interest in it.
At the time of writing most pundits think Trump has thrown his chance at re-election away and the odds reflect that. Joe Biden is 1/2 to win with bet365 and William Hill while Trump is currently 7/4 with both bookmakers. This is, however, how the betting markets looked four years ago when Hilary Clinton looked an even bigger favourite to win.
Long odds on the running mates
If you are looking for something different to bet on, some of the key State battlegrounds have the markets very interested, most notably Florida, which is currently 4/5 for the Republicans and 10/11 for the Democrats at win at bet365.
If you fancy a real punt and think something crazy will happen in the next week, which it certainly might, you might like to bet on one of the running mates to be elected. William Hill will give you 100/1 on Kamala Harris and 150/1 on Mike Pence to become President instead of their running mate.
