How Much Can I Win If I Bet On Michael Bennet?

If Bennet can defy the odds to win the Democratic nomination and 2020 presidential election, the payout could be huge. However, it is unlikely Bennet can do either. For perspective, Bovada doesn’t even give Bennet odds to win the presidential election.

Nevertheless, a $100 bet on Bennet’s BetOnline odds would equate to $15,000 for the party nomination (+15000) and $25,000 for winning the US presidency (+25000). So, if Bennet can change the tide, a small bet would be a huge payday.

Top 5 Reasons Michael Bennet Can Still Appeal To Voters

  1. Voters that want the best educational opportunities for their children will look towards Bennet after he increased student enrollment, decreased dropout rates, and improved graduation rates as superintendent of the Denver Public School system.
  2. Unlike Trump and his disparaging comments about Jewish Democratic voters being disloyal to Israel, Bennet embraces his Jewish roots. Obama won 78% of the Jewish vote in 2008, so such votes could go even better for Bennet.
  3. Bennet has most of his experience from Colorado, a state where the majority of voters have chosen a Democratic presidential candidate since 2008.
  4. Bennet is a centrist candidate, giving Democratic voters a moderate option compared to Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.
  5. With John Hickenlooper leaving the race, his supporters could gravitate towards Bennet as a fellow Coloradoan Democratic.
