Donald Trump has proved 2016 is truly the year of the underdog. While plenty of punters followed the US election campaign closely, the surprises have only just begun.
The President-elect takes office on the 20th of January 2017 and will certainly keep everyone guessing over the next four years. Read on for Sportsbet's finest US politics specials.
It's not even been two weeks since his historic win but many are already thinking Trump is a good chance to do something so ludicrous as President that it'll force the US Congress to impeach him. Sportsbet is offering 5.50 odds for the billionaire to be successfully impeached before the end of 2020.
Already Trump is facing a bunch of questions about potential conflict-of-interest regarding the running of his business empire when he's in office. It's definitely a long play, but I have a gut feeling that after the inevitable two or three scandals his impeachment odds will shorten to around 3.00- 4.00, so punters should consider the value currently being offered.
IVANKA BANG HER
Objectively, Ivanka Trump is quite good looking and doesn't The Donald know it. I'm counting on Trump wanting Ivanka to stick around so badly for the next four years that he'll consider making her Secretary of State. That means the 26.00 odds on offer seem like overs. Check out the cringeworthy video below to see how obsessed the President-elect is with his own daughter.
While Ivanka has zero political experience, she recently sat in on Trump's meeting with Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe. If Ivanka continues to appear alongside her father with foreign leaders then I'd expect her to shorten and punters should take these odds while they last. In fact, I incest you do.
Trump loves nothing more than attention and a number of political experts reckon his ego is a big reason why he decided to run for President in the first place. In saying that, could you imagine the reception he'd get as the first US President to perform at Wrestlemania?
Despite a recent break from his professional wrestling career, His Orangeness has an excellent track record as a wrestler. Trump appeared at Wrestlemania 23 in 2007, body-slamming none other than Vince McMahon. Sportsbet has the billionaire paying 6.00 odds to appear in-ring at Wrestlemania 33 in April next year and I wouldn't put it past him.
I'll BE BACK (IN POLITICS)
The Donald is in the midst of deciding his cabinet appointments and a key role to be filled is Defense Secretary. Although he's a roughie, I can't look past Arnold Schwarzenegger who's paying 51.00 odds to get the position, keeping in mind that Trump has graced the silver screen himself.
Let's not forget Arnie is the former Governor of California, serving from 2003 until 2011, meaning he'd bring plenty of political experience as well as a touch of Hollywood to the Oval Office. A man that defeated the Predator, is better known as the Terminator, and saved the world in True Lies clearly knows a thing or two about defense and should be paying much shorter odds.
