Bovada Back In The Race With New Vegas Election Odds

donald trump giving thumbs up

Ever since the run-up to the 2020 Presidential “election,” BetOnline has been leading the industry – by a mile – in the political odds department.

Before that, of course, it was all Bovada.

For a short time, even MyBookie was bringing the heat with political props, election futures, and – amusingly – political death pools.

Of course, once an actual dying man was elevated to “President,” MyBookie’s death pools went the way of the dodo, and Bovada has – for the most part – settled back to less important sports.

Nevertheless, while BetOnline is still Sportsbook in Chief™ of all things political odds, we wanted to bring bettors up to speed on Bovada’s offerings.

The payouts at Bovada are a bit different for those lines that are common across all books, and a bit of line shopping never hurt anyone, after all.

As of Monday, August 30, 2021, these are all the election odds at Bovada Sportsbook:

2021 Bovada Political Odds

2021 Virginia Gubernatorial Election – Party To Win

  • Democratic Party -450
  • Republican Party +300

When will they ever learn?

Never, probably.

The left will win in the Old Dominion, likely thanks in large part to new Dominion voting machines.

Which party will control the Senate after the 2022 Midterm election?

  • Democratic -115
  • Republican -115

Just weeks ago, this US Senate betting line strongly favored the Democrats.

Now, it’s a tossup.

Normally, we don’t go on coin flips with identical odds on both sides.

However, the payout is strong enough – and the current Democratic Party is weak enough – that the GOP should easily pick up the single seat they need to establish a majority in the upper chamber.  

Which party will win the House in the 2022 Midterm election?

  • Republican -275
  • Democratic +200

The GOP has been the favorite since November 4, 2020, and they’ve only spread the gap since.

Take the Republicans at -275, because the payout’s only going to get worse from here on out.

2022 Texas Gubernatorial Election – Odds To Win

  • Greg Abbott -300
  • Beto O’Rourke +500
  • Matthew McConaughey +600
  • Joaquin Castro +2000
  • Julian Castro +2000
  • Wendy Davis +2000

Is Beta O’Rourke still a thing?

When he ran for Senate in 2018, he promised up and down that “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”

Robert Francis hasn’t got a chance.

Also, Matthew McConaughey probably won’t even run. He’s not dumb enough to split his fan base like that.

But he’s a Democrat, so maybe he is.

US Presidential Election 2024 – Democratic Candidate

  • Field -170
  • Joe Biden +130

This is about right, and the payout is decent on the field.

US Presidential Election 2024 – Democratic Candidate

  • Joe Biden +130
  • Kamala Harris +130
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez +2000
  • Elizabeth Warren +2000
  • Michelle Obama +2000
  • Pete Buttigieg +2000
  • Amy Klobuchar +2500
  • Bernie Sanders +5000
  • Cory Booker +5000
  • Hillary Clinton +5000
  • + More

It’s less relevant that Basement Joe is still atop the boards than the fact that his odds are now even with Kabula’s.

US Presidential Election 2024 – Republican Candidate

  • Donald Trump +250
  • Ron DeSantis +250
  • Nikki Haley +700
  • Mike Pompeo +1200
  • Kristi Noem +1400
  • Mike Pence +1400
  • Ted Cruz +1600
  • Donald Trump Jr. +2000
  • Josh Hawley +2000
  • Candace Owens +2500
  • + More

Donald Trump all the way.

Of course, if you put equal money on The Donald and The Ronald, you’d guarantee a small profit if either statesman gets the nod.

US Presidential Election 2024 – Winning Party

  • Democratic -160
  • Republican +120
  • Any Other +1100

The GOP at +120 seems like a good bet, but we advise taking a flyer on “Any Other” at +1100, too.


If Trump decides to really stick it to the RINOs, he could run third party and split this phony two-party system forever in twain.

Or thrain.

Trump could do what Perot could not.

Here’s hoping.

US Presidential Election 2024 – Odds To Win

  • Kamala Harris +400
  • Joe Biden +450
  • Donald Trump Sr. +550
  • Ron DeSantis +1000
  • Nikki Haley +2000
  • Mike Pence +2500
  • Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez +3000
  • Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson +3300
  • Michelle Obama +3300
  • Cory Booker +4000
  • + More

DJT and DeSantis.

Those are the only sensible options, and if either man wins, you’d get a hefty return on America’s return to greatness.

MAGA, baby!

For good measure, we’re also going to throw in a couple of interesting current event odds from MyBookie.

They aren’t doing much in the way of actual election odds right now, but these lines do have some relevance to the general state of this absurd politically addicted world.

2021 MyBookie Current Event Odds

TIME Magazine Person Of The Year 2021

  • Doctors, Nurses, First Responders, Healthcare Workers +100
  • World Health Organization +450
  • Anthony Fauci +700
  • Joe Biden +750
  • Kamala Harris +750
  • Epidemiologists +1200
  • Journalists +1200
  • Black Lives Matter +1600
  • Climate Activists +1600
  • Alexei Navalny +2000
  • + More

TIME is getting lazy with this twisted “corporate personhood” nonsense.

Groups aren’t people.

But since hypocrisy is the order of the day for liberal publications, we suspect the favorite here is a solid bet.

What will be captured and displayed first?

  • Alien -900
  • Big Foot +450

Calling Fox Mulder.

Will a UFO be captured before 2023?

  • Yes +200
  • No -300


And remember, this even applies to captured aircraft of foreign nations.

But what constitutes a UFO to you and me probably doesn’t constitute a UFO to any government on the planet.

Every nation on earth is well aware of the experimental aerial tech of every other nation on earth.

Will the captured UFO be attributed to a foreign nation?

  • Yes -160
  • No +120

If a UFO is captured, it will obviously be attributed to some foreign nation.

After all, if a non-Earth UFO were to be captured, there would probably be no more sportsbooks from which to claim your payouts, so the distinction is largely academic.

2021 Joe Biden Presidential Mental Fitness Test Update

Will Joe Biden complete his first term as US President?

  • Yes -165 (-165)
  • No +125 (+125)

LOL, no.

Year That Joe Biden Exits Office

  • 2025 +130 (+130)
  • Not Before 2026 +350 (+350)
  • 2021 +400 (+400)
  • 2022 +400 (+400)
  • 2023 +750 (+750)
  • 2024 +1400 (+1400)

This line used to carry incredible hedging potential, but the acting POTUS is in such bad shape that he could punch out at literally any time.

If we had to go on this line today, we’d put equal money on 2022 at +400 and 2023 at +750.

It seems more and more unlikely that Biden will make it into 2024, but he should at least close out the current calendar year.

Will Joe Biden leave office via impeachment?

  • No -1200 (-1200)
  • Yes +500 (+500)

No way. Come on, man!

Joe Biden Approval Rating On September 1, 2021

  • Over N/A (47.5% -120)
  • Under N/A (47.5% -120)

This line is no longer up at any reputable Vegas election betting site, as Sleepy Joe’s approval ratings have collapsed in the last two weeks.

It didn’t help his cause when he fell asleep in a meeting with Israel’s Prime Minister, either.

And while the ever more brazen #FakeNews media is calling the above reality a “right wing extremist conspiracy theory,” it’s on camera for all the world to see.

Ladies and gentlemen, your (alleged) President of these United States of America:
