Donald Trump just keeps on giving to the world of US Election Betting oddsmakers. Six weeks after the announcement of an official Joe Biden win, Trump is still dominating the Election Betting opportunities for most top sportsbooks.

Oddsmakers have been busy in their attempts to capitalize on the incredible popularity of the outgoing President and have come up with no less than five opportunities for bettors to look into their crystal balls and predict what is in Trump’s future.

Let’s take a peek into these new Politics Betting opportunities and break down the possibility of each of the questions posed coming to fruition.

Where Will Donald Trump’s Permanent Residence Be After Leaving the White House?

Palm Beach, FL -450 with Bovada (visit our Bovada Review)

New York City, NY +500 with Bovada

Washington, D.C. +750 with Bovada

Palm Beach doesn’t want him. New York City doesn’t want him. So where is Donald Trump and his family going to settle down after he leaves office on January 20? Now there are questions about whether the bylaws at Mar-a-Lago will even allow for him to stay there and there are rumored lawsuits focused on keeping him away.

Ironically, and hilariously, Trump’s agreement when he purchased Mar-a-Lago in 1993 included a stipulation that he could not spend more than seven consecutive days at Mar-a-Lago or for no more than three weeks total a year. Under those rules, Trump has already exceeded his yearly stay!

Palm Beach is still the favorite to be Trump’s home post-Presidency, by a longshot and rightfully so. But it appears as though we can add a lawsuit about where he will live to the long list of litigation Trump is about to face.

Will Donald Trump Accept a Contributor Deal or His Own Show on a Television News Network in 2021?

Yes -220 with Bovada

No +165 with Bovada

There were rumors before Trump’s 2016 surprise win that he was plotting to start his own network, bearing his name. One thing that can’t be denied is the fact that he is ratings-gold. If you don’t believe it, just ask him.

Since the end of the 2020 Election Cycle, Trump has all but declared war on Fox News, pointing to a subscription-type TV platform as his best shot at a Trump TV platform. Trump has had ties to One America News (OAN) and could potentially launch a show on that network. But the company has said it is not for sale. A Trump confidant and true friend, Chris Ruddy currently owns Newsmax which has become Trump’s outlet of choice as of late. So that is a possibility too.

Rudy is on record saying, “Donald Trump was, is and always will be a ratings phenomena. After the presidency, we’d welcome his new show on Newsmax in a heartbeat.”

One undeniable fact is that Donald Trump will have a hard time staying out of the spotlight. His dire need to get his message out, to stay relevant and to fight against “Fake News” makes the “Yes” vote the favorite here and again, rightfully so.

Will Donald Trump Announce His Intention to Launch His Own Right-Wing Media Venture in 2021?

Yes +185 with Bovada

No -250 with Bovada

“No” is the betting favorite in this category, likely because of the difficulties in launching such a platform from the ground-up. Asking people to pay for this subscription-type service also makes this bet more of a longshot than the two previous bets.

Will Donald Trump Create His Own Political Party by 2024?

Yes +600 with Bovada

No -1200 with Bovada

Creating his own political party is a tough ask even for Donald Trump and the oddsmakers seem to agree. History has proven that anything other than “Republican” or “Democrat” in the US is doomed to fail in a Presidential Election.

Trump hasn’t been shy about his desire to stay in and to dominate the Republican party for years to come. The chances of him running in 2024 as a Republican is a far better bet – Bovada actually has his among the frontrunners of the possible Republican Candidates in 2024.

Will Donald Trump Publish a Memoir in 2021?

Yes -240 with Bovada

No +175 with Bovada

Trump has been no stranger to writing books about his experiences as a successful businessman. Oddsmakers believe that this is a 2.5-1 favorite to do just that about the last four years and beyond.

He has had a lot to say in the past and with his experience as the “most powerful man in the world.” Most believe that we will see some type of memoire quickly as he tries to stay relevant and seize on the popularity he has gained in his four years in office.

Michael Wolff, Mary Trump, Michael Cohen, John Bolton, James Comey, Omarosa, Anthony Scarmucci and a host of others have already seen success writing about the Trump Presidency. There is a good chance that Trump himself is next.
