2020 US Election Betting Specials

Unfortunately betting on the 2020 US Election isn’t legal in the US yet, and isn’t likely to be before November. However, bookmakers all over the world are taking bets on Donald Trump v Joe Biden, with the majority of the money being placed at UK bookmakers.

UK bookmakers are known for offering novelty betting markets, and there’s a few interesting ones that have caught our eye regarding Donald Trump (be warned these are less serious than the above markets):

According to online bookmakers, there’s 33.3% chance that Donald Trump will open Area 51 to the public during his first term in office. Yep, you read that right, the bookmakers have priced this at +200. Which makes this more likely than the Brooklyn Nets defeating Orlando Magic….

A less likely special but an intriguing one nonetheless, there’s a 1.2% chance that Donald Trump will deport Madonna. Tricky to see this happening, but to put it into perspective, that’s the same price as Cam Newton winning the regular season MVP.

Online bettors can back Donald Trump to withdraw the US from the UN at +700, which means there’s a 12.5% chance of this happening.

This one would cause outrage in the Whitehouse, Donald Trump is +250 to be banned by Twitter before Election Day. These odds imply a 28.6% chance.
