Being that this is Kanye West that we’re talking about, the guy that explodes on the media when they come within 10 feet of him, bettors should not take his presidential run too seriously and should bet on one of the more qualified candidates on the odds board.
Kanye Prop Bets
It would not be a Kanye West presidential run if there were not any political prop bets that came with his announcement.
The first prop bet is if President Trump will tweet Kanye or not.
Odds are in favor of Trump not tweeting Kanye at -500 while the odds of him tweeting Kanye are at +300.
This should come at a huge surprise as anyone not living under a rock should know that President Trump has little to no filter on Twitter.
If Kanye’s run at president does in fact, heat up, bettors can expect Trump to take to twitter about the situation and enjoy the nice payout that comes with it.
There is another prop on if Yeezy will participate in the election debate.
Odds are in favor of West not being in any election debate (-2000) while the odds of him being in one are at +700.
Again, it is hard to imagine his run making it very far as first of all, he has absolutely no political background and he is also known for being hot-headed.
Lastly, there are odds posted on if Kanye will win a state in the 2020 election.
Odds currently have him favored to not win a state with -2500 odds and +800 odds of him winning a state.
It is no surprise that he is favored not to win any state, but if there was any prop bet that bettors could take the chance on, this would be the one.
Bettors should keep in mind that Kanye’s love for his hometown of Chicago, Illinois is unconditional and he makes that clear pretty often in his music.
If Kanye were to win any state in the 2020 election, Illinois would be the one to back up their hometown hero.
