Who is Bill Weld?

Republican Icon

Bill Weld is a 73-year-old Republican who was the governor of Massachusetts from 1991-1997. He ran for vice president as an independent in 2016 on the Gary Johnson’s Libertarian Party ticket. Weld announced his 2020 Presidential campaign April 15, 2019 and became the first notable challenge to President Donald Trump for the Republican nomination.

Voter Base

Weld attracts support almost exclusively from the Republican Party. As a Trump critic with libertarian-leaning ideology, Weld has voter support from third party members and Republicans displeased with Trump’s direction. As time goes on for his campaign, and Trump’s impeachment inquiry plays out, Weld could earn even more support before 2020.

Odds For Bill Weld To Win The 2020 Presidential Election

Odds IconThere are currently no odds available at our recommended online sportsbooks. We will update Weld’s 2020 general election odds when they’re actually posted. Nevertheless, Weld is considered a longshot to win the 2020 presidency, regardless of a Trump impeachment/removal.

Odds Of Bill Weld Winning The Republican Nomination

Bill Weld’s dds to win the GOP nomination have been posted, and they are currently sitting at +8000. This means that if you put up $100, you would win $8000 if Weld gets the GOP nod.

Bill Weld Coronavirus Update

Bill Weld continues to run for President for some reason. Perhaps “run” is too strong a word. But even as the coronavirus hype threatens to derail Donald Trump’s re-election campaign, Weld has not benefited on the odds boards. Instead, his position remains the same: dead last in every poll, prop, and betting line.

Indeed, the only GOP “candidate” to make gains on the odds boards due to the US coronavirus crisis is current Vice President Mike Pence, who isn’t even running for the post. Pence’s odds are sitting at +1600 to be the GOP nominee, up from about +8000 a week ago.

Meanwhile, Weld is welded to the caboose: His GOP odds have dropped to +10000, and his overall odds to win the Presidency haven’t moved an inch in months from their +50000 low.

Can I Bet On Bill Weld Now?

Only Bovada is currently offering odds on Bill Weld, which means that some folks somewhere are actually betting on the guy. And that means that you can, too. Of the announced GOP challengers to Trump’s re-election, Weld’s odds have the most value. However, the likelihood of his nomination is slim even if The Donald drops out or is otherwise removed from office.

What The Current Betting Odds Tell Us About Bill Weld’s Chance Of Winning In 2020

Bill Weld has effectively no chance to win the GOP nomination, and sportsbooks aren’t even offering lines on his chances in the general. Anything could happen, but at +8000 to win the Republican ticket, those odds seem far too moderate to be worth the risk. Weld should be trending at +50000 or higher, though bettors are apparently putting action on his current price.

Bill Weld’s Chances Of Winning Based On Prediction Markets

Unfortunately for Weld, he has little chance of winning the Republican nomination. Prediction markets, such as Predictwise, don’t even give the Trump challenger any odds of success.

For comparison, Trump has an 89% chance of earning the Republican nomination again. Pence is second with 3%.

Gambling IconDuring his time as a US attorney, Weld had opposed gambling, but when he took over as governor of Massachusetts pressed lawmakers to expand the state’s legalized gambling to increase the tax revenue by nearly $100 million.
