If you’ve checked out the best Vegas election betting sites over the last week or so, you’ll see that most of the odds remain more or less unchanged.
Of course, a few individual lines have seen some movement.
For example, at Bovada Sportsbook, the Republican Party is now favored to win the 2024 Presidential election after spending most of the last year tied with the Democrat Party at -120 or so.
While the GOP is still trending at -120, the Dems have seen their odds lengthen to +110. At BetOnline, the margin’s even larger, with the right pulling odds of -150 compared to the left’s +110.
Aside from that big change, there are a few noteworthy new betting lines to consider, and BetOnline Sportsbook has the goods:
Next Nominated US Supreme Court Justice
- Ketanji Brown Jackson -225
- Kamala Harris (locked)
- J Michelle Childs +300
- Leondra Kruger +450
- Candace Jackson-Akiwumi +3300
- Wilhelmina Wright +3300
- Sherrilyn Ifill +6600
- Tiffany Cunningham +6600
- Eunice Lee +10000
- Michelle Obama +15000
- Stacey Abrams +25000
- Maxine Waters +50000
- Meghan Markle +50000
- Oprah Winfrey +50000
This line, of course, is the direct result of the recent leak of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement plans.
Clearly, the liberal Justice – nominated in 1994 by President Bill Clinton – has been pressured to resign before the 2022 Midterms, as the left would have a hard time getting any truly sympathetic nominee onto the bench after the GOP takes back both chambers of Congress this November.
The RGB fiasco still stings. Seethe, commie scum!
At any rate, right in line with Joe Biden’s VP selection criteria back in 2020, the “President” has indicated that he’ll only consider a black female or black trans candidate to the post.
After all, if the government is going to embrace identity politics everywhere else, it might as well integrate that nonsense into the highest court in the land despite the overwhelming objections of the American people.
India 2022 Punjab Elections – Winning Party
- Aam Aadmi Party -300
- United Progressive Alliance +175
- Shiromani Akali Dal+ +3300
- National Democratic Alliance +10000
- Sanyukt Samaj Morcha+ +20000
The Punjab Legislative Assembly election – the newest event on the Vegas international political odds boards – is slated to be held on Sunday, February 20, 2022. The line above is asking bettors to pick the opposition party that will come away with the most seats.
While we’re not going to pretend to know the first thing about Indian politics, we’re confident going with the bettors here. Remember, BetOnline accepts players from India, so the favorite is likely to be a well-informed pick.
Aam Aadmi at -300 it is!
2022 Colombian Presidential Election – Winner
- Gustavo Petro -160
- Sergio Fajardo +300
- Rodolfo Hernandez +800
- Alejandro Char +1100
- Federico Gutierrez +1100
- Humberto de la Calle +2500
- Marta Lucia Ramirez +2500
- Tomas Uribe +2500
The next Colombian Presidential election is scheduled for Sunday, May 29, 2022, and the favorite is leading by a solid margin.
Ivan Duque Marquez, the incumbent, is ineligible to run again. As such, it seems that Gustavo Petro – erstwhile guerilla fighter, former Bogota mayor, and current Senator – is next in line.
Petro previously ran for President of Colombia in 2018 and finished second in the election, receiving over 25% of the votes before losing to Marquez in the runoff by around 12 points.
2022 Boris Johnson Confidence Vote
- No -300
- Yes +200
This wager isn’t asking whether or not there will be a “confidence vote” for current UK PM Boris Johnson, it’s asking if Johnson would win such a vote were one to be held.
After Johnson’s lockdown hypocrisy (which has now become a cringe-tier meme for public figures worldwide) and the massive U-turn on mandatory vaccines the UK health ministry is about to pull, it’s hard to imagine BoJo the Clown™ instilling much confidence in anyone.
If no such vote takes place in 2022, all wagers will be refunded.
2022 Joe Biden Presidential Mental Fitness Test Update
Will Joe Biden complete his full first term?
- Yes -220 (-220)
- No +155 (+155)
Joe Biden Exit Date
- 2025 -180 (-180)
- 2022 +400 (+400)
- Not Before 2026 +450 (+450)
- 2023 +550 (+550)

Joe Biden Approval Rating On Feb. 1, 2022
- Between 41.0% and 41.99% N/A (-135)
- Under 41% N/A (+185)
- Between 42.0% and 42.99% N/A (+400)
- 43% or higher N/A (+1200)
It’s the last day of January, so these lines are all down for now. After tomorrow, of course, they’ll be posted back up for the next month, during which we suspect Basement Joe won’t do any better with the polling public.
The above line doesn’t vest until tomorrow, but as of today, Biden has a pathetic (and still artificially inflated) 41.8% approval rating per FiveThirtyEight.
Will Joe Biden be reelected to a second term?
- No -800 (-800)
- Yes +425 (+425)
