    How Offshore Books took Advantage of Trump Bettors

    Just read this article.
    Interesting read.


    How Offshore Oddsmakers Made a Killing off Gullible Trump Supporters

    The betting on the election was 2X superbowl amounts. Offshore books made a lot of money on the election.

    I was viewing this article more from the book perspective and how they "work the public" instead of being an article against a certain political group.


    Obviously, they moved odds to MAKE MONEY but it was interesting reading how they played the election market vs how they move a sports betting market. They knew more conservative Americans would bet Trump due to their attitude and approach to the election, even after Nov 3rd. They saw this and took advantage of it by still offering odds since they knew Trump supporters would bite.

    If somehow Trump pulled this election out, especially after Nov 3rd, the books would have lost their butt.

    no way man. What's teh biggest bet you can make on the election? Not a huge amount.

    Also, the election was rigged so they saw Trump was headed to victory and thus he became a huge favorite and that is about the times all the fraud stared to go into full swing. This isn't even disputable.

    in 2015, I was lucky enough to put $200 on Trump at +4000. On election eve, after the first results came in, Trump was at around +1100 and I kept throwing $20 bucks at it. Then he slowing started dropping , +900, +600 etc till suddenly he went to -1000 then -1500 and it never went back. This year, he went up to around -600, if I remember right, then slowly to even and the to dog again. Rigged Rigged. Undeniable.

    Lastly, Slate is a fake news site.

    Sad part is we were telling these boneheads this a month and a half ago. why do you think guys like Bill Oreilly, Shawn Hannity, Mark Levin, Rush Limbaugh etc.., are all multi millionaires? They found a tremendous market of suckers. Look were most of these sneaky pastors are from. The dumb deep south. A clientele of a lifetime for a cunning conman.

    I still get a kick out of the gold and sliver commercials were targeting fox news viewers using fear tactics. No other gold and silver companies were targeting MSNBC or other news companies. The only way to make back your money is through a broker who will give you rock bottom prices.
