Gas Up Your Political Betting Fun With Current Events Odds

gas price inflation 2021

Politics is the one betting category – and, really, the one social category – that truly seems to overlap with everything. You can’t even make an NFL bet these days without considering the politics of the situation.

Want to wager on the Green Bay Packers this Sunday?

Well, if so, you’ve got to consider the coronavirus odds on Aaron Rodgers’ “COVID toe” injury.

You get the idea.

As such, it’s really no surprise that current events odds are nearly as popular at the best Vegas political betting sites as straight-up election odds are.

Indeed, many of the current current event odds (ha!) you’ll find at the best online political sportsbooks could – in either direct or roundabout ways – be classified as political props or political futures.

To see what we mean, take a look at the following betting lines on pop culture and current events.

The selections come from all three major betting sites we recommend, and we’ve only included a few of the most compelling examples. Be sure to visit each online sportsbook for more.

(Surprisingly, Bovada Sportsbook – which usually doesn’t offer too much in the way of current events fare – is hitting the space especially hard, particularly with its 2022 Beijing Summer Olympics odds.)

2021 Current Events Odds

National Average Price Of Gasoline On/Before Dec. 31, 2021

  • Over $3.50 per gallon -200
  • Under $3.50 per gallon +160

Over and then some. Just buy a $100,000 electric car, already. Sheesh.

National Average Price Of Eggs On/Before Dec. 31, 2021

  • Under $2.00 per dozen -140
  • Over $2.00 per dozen +110

Eggs are generally cheap and accessible. We can still get three dozen for about $4.00 at Costco, so we’re taking the under. But just barely.

National Average Price Of Milk On/Before Dec. 31, 2021

  • Under $4.00 per gallon -150
  • Over $4.00 per gallon +120

We don’t drink milk. Milk is for babies.

National Average Price Of Bacon On/Before Dec. 31, 2021

  • Over $8.00 per pound -120
  • Under $8.00 per pound -120

We do, however, eat bacon. Lots and lots of bacon.

And that’s going to get very, very expensive very, very soon.

National Average Price Of Coffee On/Before Dec. 31, 2021

  • Over $5.00 per pound -160
  • Under $5.00 per pound +130

Thanks to Starbucks, lefties already pay about $100 per pound of coffee.

To keep this thing at the under (which seems unlikely, so take the over), conservatives will need to double their intake and kick the K-Cups to the curb.

Also, Community Coffee is terrible, and we need more of those Hershey’s chocolate creamers in the office.

Someone tell the boss.  

Will there be a US diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Winter Olympics?

  • Yes -225  
  • No +175

Despite all the talk and bluster about this ridiculous non-issue – particularly when you consider the fact that China Joe is China Joe – probably not.

Remember, the current administration actually likes Beijing.     

Biden to Attend 2022 Winter Olympics?

  • No -2500  
  • Yes +800

No, but not because he dislikes the CCP.

Joe won’t go because he’s old as dirt and far too feeble of mind and body to risk such a trip.   

First Country To Boycott Winter Olympics 2022 (Excluding USA)

  • Australia +125 
  • United Kingdom +150  
  • Canada +500    
  • France +1000   
  • New Zealand +1000    
  • Germany +2000  
  • India +2500    
  • Netherlands +2500    
  • Ukraine +2500

  • Denmark +5000

None of the above (including USA).

Nee. (LOL.)

UK To Fully Boycott 2022 Winter Olympics

  • No -2500
  • Yes +800

Oy! Yew got a loicense ta say “no,” guv?

Canada To Fully Boycott 2022 Winter Olympics

  • No -2500
  • Yes +800

Noo, eh.

Norway To Fully Boycott 2022 Winter Olympics

  • No -2000
  • Yes +750


Will Joe Biden deploy the National Guard to reduce shipping backlogs?

  • No -500
  • Yes +300


Biden just ordered a totally ineffectual number of barrels to be released from the US national oil reserves (which actually caused gas prices to increase even more) so anything’s possible.

Will there be a worker’s strike at the Port of Los Angeles in 2022?

  • Yes -170
  • No +130

Sure, why not.

Of course, nobody would notice at this point, which isn’t exactly the best time for unions to do their thing.

Will Tea Turtle sell out on Amazon before Nov. 26, 2021?

  • Yes -190
  • No +140

This isn’t political, unless you’re a stinking commie.

However, we came across this line and didn’t know what it was, so we looked the thing up, had a laugh, and included it here.

Here’s the link to buy your very own Tea Turtle before they sell out.

(That may or may not be the real item because we may or may not be misdirecting you in furtherance of our own stocking stuffing needs this Christmas season. – Ed.)  

Will Squishy Little Golden Dumpling sell out on Amazon before Nov. 26, 2021?

  • Yes -250
  • No +170

Someone made a stress toy out of a liberal Donald Trump meme. These will be gone before you know it.
