Parden Impact On Trump Re-Election Odds
Giving the Tiger King a presidential pardon would likely impact Donald Trump’s reelection odds — where sportsbooks list Trump as the clear 2020 election betting favorite — so it’s best to tread lightly in this prop’s jungle.
There are many big beautiful booby traps just lying and hoaxing around, and in normal times, maybe that would be enough.
Fortunately for the President, the Democratic presidential nominee betting odds have “hit the fan” over the past Fornite, so there’s no telling what result will come out of the postponed state primary elections.
Nevertheless, Trump pardoning the Tiger King is unlikely to happen, according to the Bovada oddsmakers, who set “Yes” on the prop at +575 odds and an 11% chance to occur during his first term.
For a political betting reference: A 100 unit/dollar bet on Trump to pardon the Tiger King would win your initial wager ($100, etc.) back plus pay out an additional 575 units/dollars on January 20, 2021 — the end of Number 45’s first term as POTUS.
However, oddsmakers favor Trump choosing not to pardon the Tiger King during his first term, opening “No” on the prop at -1100 odds and with an 89% probability of happening.
For this likely to happen outcome, an 1100 unit/dollar bet is required and would payout 100 units/dollars if no presidential pardon is given to Joe Exotic before Donald Trump is sworn in for a second term or leaves the Oval Office.
Trump pardon Tiger King odds analysis
The current U.S. Commander in Chief has a lot on his plate at the moment, and there’s a strong chance Trump is focusing all his time in the White House on limiting the death toll from the coronavirus and restarting the economy once health officials give him and his administration’s task force the green light.
The Tiger King pardon appears to be pretty low on the list of priorities for Trump. Unless there is some sort of massive online backlash if he says “No” then it’s unlikely to show up on his daily docket or briefings.
Trump’s Tiger King pardon prop (Yes +575/No -1100) is available online until January 20, 2021, so you can catch this bet on Bovada politics and hundreds more leading up to the 2020 U.S. presidential election on Tuesday, November 3.
