Currently better than 5:2 odds that Hillary beats Trump

I was going to offer to bet here, but better to go to some legal gambling site than to bet me here. But you Trump lovers, deep in your delusion, should consider betting. Hey, Trump himself should consider betting. Although he's to smart too bet on himself. Better to bet against himself and make it even more of a win/win than it already is.

Hey it's just what the money says, i.e. a reflection of bets people are willing to make. IT probably shouldn't be taken seriously as an indication of Trump's chances.

Just to explain what this means for TPB, ZZYZZX, Ironman, FW and others, for every $20 you bet on Trump, you either lose $20 if Hillary wins or you win $50 if Trump wins. Good deal right ?!

You can't admit you don't know how the house works.

Odds are placed to intice "Action".

Believe it or not. there are people who cherry pick long shots and have systems worked out where they can detect those long shots.
How ever the more people that get turned on to that tip looking to score. The house will cover it's ass and adjust those odds accordingly.

Actually if this were a real horse race, they would both be 1/43 odds or equally just as crappy odds. You want them to show third in your Trifecta or Perfecta and hope you get one of the long shots to win and place.
Even if the establishment is so certain they've got this game rigged.
Most of the establishment isn't so sure. People will be standing over shoulders when the votes are tallied, there wont be no Okeydoke shit going on in November.

Our man Trump, well not him, but the wise ass smart mother fuckers, he is surrounding him self with that has seen every ditry tick in the Liberal play book. Will be riding the ass of the GOP convention, and then the General election vote count. There wont be no shit.

It's the same thing Reagan did. Had Reagan not been on top of his game, Carter would have gotten a second term.

Well, I used to be a floor trader. I was the house basically.

Here, look at this https://sports.bovada.lv/baseball/mlb/game-lines-market-group for baseball odds. These are bets where definitely one side or the other wins.

The house tries to make the same amount of bets on both sides, their profit is the spread between the two. As conditions change they may aggressively change the price to cover their exposure - even talking a small loss sometimes. They aren't in the business of actually gambling on the games.

On that first one the Mets are -176 Atlanta is +161 So The mets are favored, you bet $176 for a chance to win $100. If you bet on Atlanta, you bet $100 for a chance to win $161

Every time the house takes both sides of this bet, they lock in $15.

That's how the house works.

By the way, I never bet on sports, except pools in March madness and super bowl.

Espectially gambling on an election. Your bet is essentially a poll. The more people bet the more it affects the odds.

Well, obviously they can do whatever they want. It may happen to some extent because they can't layoff too many bets they took on one side. Also, I wasn't talking about small time bookies, I was talking casinos. But of course you're right. They don't want to though. It defeats the purpose.

I guess if they have an expert that they think is reliable or if it's fixed (which we all know NEVER happens). But in any non fixed game or election, the odds caused by betting on both sides should be close enough to the actual expected outcome that it would be stupid for them to take a side. Then they're just another gambler (but one that got their bet on at a favorable price).

No shit sherlock. So the house keeps it balanced. They try to take the same amount of bets on each side, changing the odds (relative to other casinos to affect that balance).

If they strongly felt that it was going to get closer by election time, they might take more bets on HIllary than on Trump, which they could do by changing the odds they offer compared to other casinos. Offering better odds for Hillary bets and worse odds for Trump bets (relative to other casinos). That way they are effectively betting on Trump. If the election gets closer, they can lock in a profit at any time.

It's a market basically.

With the official announcement from Vice President Joe Biden that he will not run for the Democratic nomination, Hilary Clinton has jumped to a gigantic favorite to become the next President of the United States.

Clinton is now a -110 favorite to become the next President according to Bovada, which is up from +130 only two weeks ago.

The Republican nominees have largely remained unchanged following a debate earlier this week, with Donald Trump seeing a slight bump in his Presidential odds shifting from +600 to +500.

The biggest mover though has been Jeb Bush. Over the past several weeks there have been multiple unflattering reports about the former GOP front-runners campaign that has seen large financial cuts in that area.

Bush was +600 to become the next President and +500 to become the Republican nominee on October 19, he has since shifted to +1200 to become the President and +700 to run for the Republicans.

Hillary Clinton continues to lead all challengers on the odds to win the next Presidential Election in the United States, with the sportsbooks setting her as the clear betting favorite to win that election in 2016.

A trio of Republicans follow Clinton on those political betting futures at the sportsbook, with Jeb Bush, Donald Trump, and Marco Rubio all at +600 odds. Bernie Sanders, challenging Clinton for the Democratic nomination, is at +1000, with Vice President Joe Biden at +1200.

Clinton is also the clear -300 favorite on the odds to be the Democratic Presidential nominee for 2016, with Sanders trailing at +400 and Biden just behind him at +500. Biden, though, has not yet made an announcement that he will be running for President in 2016.

Bush, Trump, and Rubio are the +250 co-favorites on the odds to be the Republican Presidential nominee for 2016, with Carly Fiorina, Ben Carson, and Ted Cruz all at +1000, and John Kasich at +1200. Chris Christie trails at +2000, with Rand Paul well back at +7500.

Exactly so if Pro Hillary(establishment PACS) and the Never Trump PACs all jump in early with large bets on Hillary, they affect the odds early on.

Psychology is everything with the Establishment. They think they can mind fuck there way to putting over that useless gasbag Thunder Colon Killton into the oval office by deploying Gambling odds psychosis on the voting public.

Yes, that has been my point. But also that the bets made, and thus the odds offered are a better predictor than polls. Actually they are a damn good predictor. For example, if the the odds right before election day show it isn't even close, and Hillary is favored similarly to now, then you know with certainty that Trump will lose. Unless it's totally rigged.

Btw, I edited the first part of my comment. I saw Quigley was referring to the nomination being a certainty. I misread becasue of the odds being +750 seemed like gen election odds unless you went way back.

I like this. I used to get a kick out of TPBs total lack of grasp of risk and his opinion that oil market prices are easy to manipulate by large price differences.

This is possibly even more stupid.

Tenpoundbass says

Hillary(establishment PACS) and the Never Trump PACs all jump in early with large bets on Hillary, they affect the odds early on.

People didn't have to bet big money on Hillary to make her a favorite in the election markets. Remember, she was ahead of Obama at one point in 2008. Her husband is Bill Clinton. The only time odds would be easy to manipulate, would be early on, and what would be the point ? Everyone would know that it's early and that the odds don't mean much, and are easy to move by just betting a few hundred thousand.

Look. I pay attention to odds because I think they are a more accurate snapshot than polls. But to think that Hillary pacs manipulate them ? I don't want to say that's a new low in stupidity for you, because your record can not be broken. But come on man. That's ridiculous.

Of course as it changes from day to day, one side is temporarily right and the other side is temporarily wrong. Does anyone actually think that the perceived odds in Dec 2015 should be the same as the odds in June 2016 ? Of course not.

That's a 1 in 4 or 25% chance of winning. And 3:1 is what the casinos are willing to bet on Trump (when they take a bet on Hillary).

Lets' say you made a 40:1 bet that the Miami Dolphins were going to win the super bowl. Then half way through the season, they have a winning record, and are doing pretty damn well, and now it's 8:1. That doesn't mean the casinos have been wrong about Miami the whole time. It just means their chances are better now than they were before. It says nothing about the future. The 8:1 odds would still presumably be very good estimate of their current chance of going all the way.

I would like to add that these sort of odds reflect betting by people who are mostly 1%ers, and this demographic has been proven to be completely out of touch with the sentiment of ordinary Americans. They wanted Jeb! They bet heavily on Jeb! They got the guy they didn't bet on: Trump, because people actually voted for him. They wanted Hillary and bet heavily on her as well. But with her they had a candidate who was unmatched by light years in name recognition and democrat party dominance. She was ordained from the beginning, running against nobodies of the first order. The fact that one of those nobodys (who had almost no name recognition a year ago) was able to nearly match her in elected delegates is indicative of her unpopularity and distastful reputation even among registered democrats.

Point is: the betting here is mostly from big money folks, and these people have done miserably in predicting this year's politics.
I think polls are a far more accurate indication of public sentiment.

Trump's votes are of a higher, more robust quality: whiter, maler, and more motivated. He doesn't cheat by attracting immigrant or female (eww) votes, which we all know don't really count.

That's why the polls don't reflect the overwhelming Trump victory we're about to witness. Once in the booth, Trump voters will black out the box next to his name more firmly, with conviction and virility, thus weighting their vote 28% more than the typical limp-wristed and effeminate Hillary vote, which positively reeks of bad perfume, decadence and denial of American exceptionalism.

Funny, I thought it was because primaries are always about the party base, and Hillary is more moderate, more conservative, and thus more electable by the political middle (which includes independents and some republicans) that always decide elections.

Don't they say candidates always pivot to the center for the general ? Bernie would have had to do that if he had won the nomination. Hillary won't have to, she's already there.

Quigley, you're right that what Bernie did is impressive. But I take it as more indicative of the electorate not buying the BS status quo as much anymore, trickle down, income enequality, etc., rather than how bad a candidate Hillary is. It's true though also, that her negatives are a bit high. Nothing compared to Trump's though.

Which of course begs the question, is Trump just rigging this so that Hillary can win ? Maybe even without knowing that that's his role ?

IT would be true that gambling odds are going to be very much affected by polls, where as contrary to what TPB thinks, polls are not affected at all by the gambling odds (or to an extremely extremely small degree). But gambling reflects a lot of people doing an analysis of what is going to happen and a willingness to bet on that. With polls, more than half that respond aren't even going to vote, and of those that will, many will change their minds based on dabates, future speeches, ads, and so on. The polls usually don't measure the conviction behind an opinion. Those polls that do measure conviction or strength of negative opinion, are looking very bad for Trump.

Stay +200 Leave - 300

That's the Odds folks.
If you Bet on 100 on Stay you win $33 bucks for your troubles.
If you bet 100 on Leave and it hits you win $200 for your troubles.

OR! For $200 bucks you only risk losing $67 bucks.
If you bet a hundred on each. If they stay and you hit because you put a hudred on both. But you still lose $67.
But if they chose leave, then you win $100.

Only losers would vote to stay.

upcoming Brexit vote

At least with Brexit, the people get to vote on it.

When our moronic congress threatens to not raise the debt ceiling on spending that has essentially already occurred, that is, when they have one of their tantrums and threaten to blow everything up if they can't have their way on some other policy, we don't get to vote. All we can do is watch the idiotic assholes make fools out of themselves.

Liberal media template lately is "Trump is not electable". I hear this same shit every 4 years, they said same thing about Bush, and about Obama even. I remember at some point taking that crap seriously, not again. Trump is very much electable, and Hillary is not likely to win.

If you really believe that, then you're a fool not to take the 5:2 odds and bet a few hundred on Trump winning.

OR maybe in your many years of living you've had a chance to learn that the stuff you think is usually wrong, better to just say shit on a forum than to put you're money where your mouth is.

Now is no time to start being honest with yourself. Honesty ? Having integrity ? Integrity inshmegrity ! That bullshit is for those educated liberal pansies.

Real men are lying dirt bags. Am I right ?

I was going to offer to bet here, but better to go to some legal gambling site than to bet me here


I suggest keeping your day job. Making predictions just doesn't seem to be your specialty.

I’d bet against Kamala all day long. I hope the odds are in her favor so I make more money when Trump is re-elected!

The Housing Trap
You're being set up to spend your life paying off a debt you don't need to take on, for a house that costs far more than it should. The conspirators are all around you, smiling to lure you in, carefully choosing their words and watching your reactions as they push your buttons, anxiously waiting for the moment when you sign the papers that will trap you and guarantee their payoff. Don't be just another victim of the housing market. Use this book to defend your freedom and defeat their schemes. You can win the game, but first you have to learn how to play it.
