I like betting and I like politics. Unfortunately wagering on politics is currently not legal according to my weak understanding of the law but as I struggled to stay up with Senators Cruz and Senator Lee my mind wandered to how awesome it would be for me if it was permissible to bet on politics and then I remembered that their is a lot of talk of making it legal. So I’m going to start practicing setting betting lines on races around the country. Note that these aren’t necessarily how I would bet but where I’d put the line.
Lindsey Graham losing: 6-1
Lee Bright winning: 8-1
Nancy Mace winning: 9-1
Richard Cash winning: 15-1
I’d be jumping to bet against Graham for 6-1.
Democrat winning: 20-1
Might be low.
Bill Cassidy winning primary: 2-1
Rob Maness winning primary: 4-1
Mary Landrieu: 1-3
Bill Cassidey: 2-1
Rob Maness: 4-1
Full disclosure I’m personally betting on Maness, and expect the line to move in his direction.
Mitch McConnell winning: 1-8
Matt Bevin winning: 8-1
Not betting this one, not enough info.
Mitch McConnell v Grimes: Pick em’
John Cornyn losing: 10-1
Worth a small wager at these kinds of odds.
NJ Special Election:
Booker a clear favorite despite being the vastly inferior candidate because it’s New Jersey.
