Democrats said a blue wave was coming in 2018, and then again in 2020. They were right, as they retook control of both chambers and the presidency. Now oddsmakers and bettors believe a red wave is on the way. Republicans are predicted to win the Virginia, Texas, and Florida Governor races, as well as the Georgia, Alaska, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri, Florida, North Carolina, and Wisconsin Senate races coming in 2022.
