President Trump is rarely out of the headlines. His term as the 45th President of the United States has been fraught with controversy, making him one of the most unpopular heads of state in modern memory. Of course, the fact that the media has been on his back from day one doesn’t help very much, but no president is ever going to please everyone is a country comprised of Republican and Democrat voters.

Of course, there are others who just do not buy into politics at all and prefer to simply watch from the sidelines. In the last election, Trump was pitted against the Democrats’ Hillary Clinton, in what seen as one of the most difficult picks of all time. Neither candidate will go down in history as the most popular to ever stand for election, so naturally, this led to some completely checking out of voting altogether.

To those who are not really that interested in politics, but enjoy prop betting, wagering on politics should be given some consideration. There are excellent markets that can be taken advantage of in order to win a few dollars. If you are used to betting on sports, it might be a little strange to consider putting your money on election candidates and the like. However, you might be surprised at how engaging it can be.

If you are looking to get involved in betting on politics, there is no doubt that prop bets on President Trump are the best place to start. He is, after all, completely unique to any other president the country has ever had, so this alone makes it something worth considering, right?

The Best President Trump Prop Bets

Politics is not for everyone. Now, depending on who you say that to – especially in this day and age where having an opinion can get you crucified – you might find that those around you try to force you into being political. There are some who believe that the traditional roles of conservatives and liberals have been inverted somewhat, where conservatives are upholding traditional freedoms and liberals are on crusades to prevent certain freedoms being executed.

As such, it is difficult to be politically minded in 2019. At the same time, this doesn’t mean that you have to completely take your mind off politics and the day-to-day functioning of President Trump. Well, where there is money to be made, any real betting fan will see an opportunity, surely? When it comes to football, there are plenty of Donald Trump Super Bowl 53 prop bets that might change your mind.

First up, let’s take a look at the chance of Trump’s party, the Republicans, winning the next election in 2020:

  • Democratic Party -150
  • Republican Party +120

Betting Prediction

Now, as Trump has not been the most popular man to ever occupy the White House, many believe that he will not be elected to a second term. If the Republicans are to win the next election, the chances are that Trump would be the candidate, therefore, taking up his second term in office. However, this is not a guarantee which means that odds are not as long as they could be, at +120.

Pick: Democratic Party at -150

Will Donald Trump Be Impeached By The House In His 1st Term?

  • Yes +120
  • No -150

Odds courtesy of Bovada are correct as of February 1, 2019

If there was any chance of Trump being impeached, surely it would have happened by now. The President has had everything thrown at him, yet has managed to emerge unscathed. Well, that is if you disregard the daily diatribe by the mainstream media and the constant protests and ritual hatred carried out on college campuses around the United States.

Whatever your opinion of the 45th President of the USA is, you have to think that it would take something especially egregious to see him impeached. There are two important things to consider when placing this bet:

  • If there was anything that Trump had done in his past that was worthy of impeachment, it would be known by now, and surely would have been used against him by now.
  • If there is anything Trump could do in the future to warrant impeachment, would he do this with the eyes of the world on him? Would he, given that he has been so careful until now, do anything that could lead to disgrace knowing that his political enemies would simply love to see it happen?
Betting Prediction

Pick: Of course not. That’s why “No” at -150 is the only bet to go for here.

Odds for Trump to Win the 2020 Presidential Election

  • Yes +200
  • No -300

Odds courtesy of SportsBetting are correct as of February 1, 2019

There is no doubt that there are many out there who would want anyone but Trump in the hot seat of American politics. Well, anyone but Hillary Clinton, going by the last election. Although President Trump has many fans and supporters, it is difficult to attain any level of respect when the majority of the global media outlets are out to get you. As such, it is so difficult to see this changing. Ever.

In order for Trump to win a second term, he would first have to run for one. Now, it is difficult to tell if he will opt for another 4 years in office, given that his first term has been very difficult. If he does run for a second term, he will need the majority of Americans to vote for him. Can you see the majority of citizens in the United States opting to vote for Trump? Me neither.

Of course, there are always events that can change the opinion of voters. There is still time. Right now, it doesn’t look likely that the incumbent President will get in for a second term, and this is reflected in the odds of +200. By all means, these odds don’t suggest that he has absolutely no chance. Remember, nobody gave Trump a chance when he was running, so anything can happen.

Betting Prediction

However, it seems highly unlikely that the powers that be will not stand in the way of Trump making a second term. That is, even if he does manage to persuade the general populous of the U.S. to vote in his favor. If that sounds fair, then I’m sure you will agree with me when I say that it is just too difficult to see Trump make it to the White House a second time.

Pick: Donald Trump not to Win the Presidential Election in 2020 at -300.

Trump vs. Everybody

In terms of prop bets, there are plenty to get onboard with when it comes to President Trump. However, I was drawn to a couple of markets recently that I think are pretty good for the opportunities they offer, as well as the potential chuckles you could have when looking at some of the odds.

Prior to the next Presidential Elections, the candidates for each party will need to be decided. As it stands, the most obvious candidate for the Republicans is Trump himself, who comes in at a decent +200 ahead of the pack. As it stands, he is also the favorite to win the next election.

Let’s take a look at the odds for the next President of the United States before we see where Trump and others stand in terms of being the next candidate for their respective parties.

The Next President of the United States

  • Donald Trump +200
  • Kamala Harris +600
  • Beto ORourke +1000
  • Bernie Sanders +1200
  • Joe Biden +1200

  • Mike Pence +2000
  • Tulsi Gabbard +2200

As you can see from the odds above, Trump is the favorite to win the election. This is not really something out of the ordinary, as the run up to the elections are yet to begin, and no one has really established themselves to challenge the current president just yet. As such, there is no real candidate on the radar for the general public to get behind. More than this, a true candidate for the Democrats has not been identified.

In truth, it is far too early to begin to predict who will be in the White House in the next term. The general consensus is that the president is one of the least popular presidents of all time, and he is certainly the bane of those who consider themselves radical feminists or modern-day liberals. There are even some lifelong Republicans that have shown displeasure with Trump, but, look, he does have his supporters.

Aside from the obvious candidates, there are some pretty eyebrow-raising names among the mix. If you are a fan of the movies, you can get your hands on Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney at +10000. Podcast pioneer, UFC color commentator, comedian, and hunter, Joe Rogan, is also priced at +10000. These three are seen as having a better chance of getting into office as Ted Cruz, who is priced at +1500. To put this into even clearer perspective, Dwayne The Rock Johnson is even better priced at +5000.

Betting Prediction

When it comes down to it, it is far too early to predict a winner. Well, that is my opinion, at least. If you have a hunch – or simply fancy Joe Rogan giving a presidential address at some point – go ahead and place some bets. I, for one, will probably wait a little longer to gauge the situation

Odds courtesy of MyBookie are correct as of February 1, 2019

Things are not as clear when it comes to the next Democratic candidate. While Trump is far and away the favorite to be announced as the next Republican candidate, Kamala Harris is slightly ahead of the pack at +300. Beto O’Rourke is pushing her at +400, while Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden both come in at +700.

Once again, there are some wild picks among the mix, with Mark Zuckerberg and, erm, Chelsea Clinton at the far end of selections at +10000. While it would be hilarious to see Zuckerberg and another Clinton running for the Democratic post, you cannot argue that the most sensible options are found further up the table of names.

Betting Prediction

As it stands, Harris looks pretty popular. However, I believe the Democrats will look to the Texan, Beto O’Rourke, to drive their bid towards the White House.

Pick: O’Rourke to be the next Democratic candidate at +400

Odds courtesy of MyBookie are correct as of February 1, 2019

As you can clearly see, Trump is favored to drive the Republican’s charge towards a second term in the White House. The chances are that he will be the one running for the next slot as the president, and his odds of -350 see him miles ahead of the second candidate on the list, Mike Pence. This looks like a very good bet at present, as you cannot really envisage anyone else in his position.

Betting Prediction

Of course, there are a few long shots in there, too, with Nikki Haley +2000, Mitt Romney +3300, John Kasich +3300, and Tom Cotton at +5000, but these odds are indicative of all of these candidates having little to no chance of running. If anything, these odds support the notion that Trump will be running for a second term in office. It is clear as day that MyBookie thinks this will be the case, at least.

Pick: Trump to be the next Republican candidate at -350

Final Thoughts

Trump may not be to everyone’s tastes, but boy, does he get exposure. Well, he is the President of the United States, after all. It is difficult to think of any other president in the history of the country that has had the impact the former business magnate has had on the world though. His name is known by everyone, from old farm workers in China to six-year-old kids in British schoolyards.

What makes Trump celebrated by some and detested by others is his unpredictability and mercurial nature. Sometimes, his decisions come out of the leftfield, and this can be something special when it comes to betting on certain scenarios. Prop bets on the President have become very popular in recent times, as a result. There are some cool wagers in there, and – even if you are not interested in politics – you should be able to have a little fun with them.

Whatever happens in 2020, we can all agree that Trump’s presence in the Oval Office has been… odd. To say the least. Whether the president’s policies have worked in your favor or not, what we can all agree on is that there is plenty of potential to make some money of these prop bets.

Now, what exactly would Joe Rogan have to do to become the next president? I wonder…
