Bet on the Writer of the NY Times Op Ed Against Trump

Bet on N.Y. Times Op Ed AuthorBy now you’ve heard of the “gutless” writer who wrote a damning New York Times Op Ed about President Trump and how senior officials are collaborating to ensure he can’t do a lot of damage to the country while he’s in office. It’s barely been 24 hours since news broke but accusations and denials are flying around Washington as fingers are being pointed in an attempt to find out who wrote it.

The scandal is taking up headlines across the country so it should come as no surprise that you can now bet on it at many U.S. online casinos, with various opinions on who spilled the beans. Although it’s certainly frustrating to make a wager that might never be settled and therefore ruled as a “push”, it’s still fun to get a few bucks down on political backstabbing and what the future holds in the White House.

The two sportsbooks who posted lines on the author of the Op Ed were of course Bovada and MyBookie, as neither have ever shied away from a good public relations opportunity. There’s nothing better than elbowing your way into some free news article mentions, (like this one). The two offshore entities agree the favorite for being revealed traitor is Vice President Mike Pence but they disagree on the numbers. Cagey “MB” seems pretty convinced it’s him with a line of -150, while Bovada pays more with +300. Anyone looking to bet on Pence as part of the resistance should obviously go straight there to get better odds.

After Pence, there’s no clear consensus and books disagree about who should be next. David Strauss at MyBookie thinks it could be Betsy Devos (+200), Mike Pompeo (+400), or Steven Mnuchin (+400), while competitor Pat Morrow is leaning towards Jeff Sessions (+325), John Kelly (+450), and James Mattis (+700) as likely culprits. When comparing lines strictly based on “entertainment value”, you have to give the edge to Bovada Sportsbook because they put Donald Trump himself as the mole, and even gave him odds of +2,500, which is actually quite reasonable. You just can’t make this stuff up.

There are a ton of other political props you can bet on at both places, so if this type of action is your cup of tea, check them out  soon.

For anyone interested, here is the full list of Strauss’ odds on who will be outed as author of the N.Y. Times piece:

MIKE PENCE   -150
BETSY DEVOS   +200
MIKE POMPEO   +400
STEVEN MNUCHIN   +400

ROBERT WILKIE   +800
KIRSTJEN NIELSEN   +1000
