A look at Donald Trump's Acceptance Speech Prop Bets
Donald Trump is set to give his acceptance speech tonight at or around 9:45PM Eastern Time.
Online sportsbooks have a number of proposition wagers on offer regarding the contents of Trump's speech, including whether or not the outspoken GOP nominee will utter the phrase "Black Lives Matter", "Lyin' Ted", and "Obamacare".
A bettor can win $250 on a $100 investment if Trump says "Black Lives Matter". Betting site 5Dimes (SBR rating A+) was the first to release this political prop bet. Trump is an -825 favorite to mention the Supreme Court during tonight's acceptance speech.
Given tonight's venue in Cleveland, bookmakers are taking bets on whether or not Trump will reference LeBron James, with a yes resulting in the odds of +200 and a no priced at -260.
Trump, along with running mate Mike Pence (Governor of Indiana), is around a 2 to 1 underdog against Hillary Clinton in the upcoming November 2016 election for the President of the United States of America. There are a fleet of lucky sports bettors at SBR Forum holding wagering tickets with the odds on a Trump victory as high as +6600 or 66 to 1.
The Democrats hold their national convention next week. Online betting sites are expected to similarly offer a range of speech related prop bets for Hillary Clinton. Market observers expect the prop bets for Clinton's speech to include mention of the email controversy the former Secretary of State has been ensnared in for much of the last year, though Clinton will not face charges from the Justice Department.
