If you wake up feelin’ a Bern after getting hit by Cupid’s arrow on Valentine’s Day, then don’t worry about calling a doctor.
All that’s needed to place a wager are the updated Vegas election betting odds—because that’s the cure for what ails you.
Oh, and Medicare For All is probably a good idea too.
Nevertheless, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is getting a whole lotta love this V-Day from the oddsmakers out in Viva Las Vegas, installing him as the favorite to win both the upcoming 2020 Nevada caucuses (Sat., Feb. 22) and the Democratic presidential nomination.
Nevada Caucus Betting Odds
- Bernie Sanders -350
- Pete Buttigieg +400
- Joe Biden +750
- Amy Klobuchar +1500
- Elizabeth Warren +5000
- Tom Steyer +5000
Bernie is currently listed at -350 odds to win the Nevada Democratic caucuses next weekend, which means a $350 wager would win $100 for a $450 total payout.
When flipping his Vegas odds to an implied probability, we can see that Sanders has a 77.78% chance to win gold in the Silver State next weekend.
When looking at how the upcoming primary voting in Nevada will affect the Democratic nominee betting odds, it’s easy to see why Bachelor Bernie now has the edge (but not the boot edge-edge) to receive the coveted red rose.
Oddsmakers at Vegas online sportsbooks listed Sanders at a distance +1000 odds this time one year ago.
And while a $100 bet, $1000 win may have been on the table back in 2020, oddsmakers see Bernard as a much more favorable candidate to bring home to ma and pa after getting to know the Vermont Senator over the past year.
The chances of the Democrats—including the pretentious establishment who love playing hard to get—tying the knot with the honorary woman is now at an all-time.
Sanders is currently listed at +135 to win the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, meaning a $100 Benjamin Franklin will now net you a box of chocolates worth approximately $135.
This gives bachelor numero uno a 42.55% chance to come out on top, but there is one other candidate you should keep an eye on.
Now, Daddy Bernie is unquestionably the favorite. And I ain’t sayin’ you’re a gold digger, but if you don’t wanna mess with no broke contenders and prefer your hunnie to spoil you then Mini Mike Bloomberg, a.k.a. the $60 billion man, is your best bet.
Bloomberg has dropped $350 million on ads so far, which has caused the sugar baby billionaire to slide up the board to +200 odds, giving him a roughly 33.33% chance of winning the nomination.
While Vegas oddsmakers may like to have a 50 Shades of Grey-like scenario play out in the Oval Office, strong independent sharps know to stay away thanks to Bloomy’s history of stop-and-frisk, Big Gulp prohibition, and myriads of other red flags during his time as NYC mayor.
My advice: Putting on rose-tinted glasses at this point in the race may cause all the red flags to look like regular flags, but your best bet is to go with the candidate who has a decades-long history of treatin’ you and everyone else with dignity and respect.
