TUSCALOOSA, AL – Will Trump be booed at the LSU-Alabama game on Saturday? The President of the United States is expected to be in attendance for the big game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on Alabama’s home turf. Bovada, one of the top USA online sportsbooks, currently has a prop bet as to whether or not the POTUS will be embraced or shunned by the crowd. “No” is the favored answer with odds of -160 while “Yes” has odds of +120.
Trump was in the stadium for Game 5 of the World Series and then attended UFC 244 in New York on Saturday. This will be his third sporting event in less than two weeks’ time. These outings seem to be part of his 2020 Presidential campaign for reelection. Trump was heavily booed at both events, so history would lean toward taking the underdog in this wager. But based on the lines and the thoughts of one LSU player, some would say it’s doubtful the President will receive a bad welcome from those in Alabama.
Joe Burrow, the quarterback for the LSU Tigers was excited to learn that Trump will be in the stands on Saturday.

“Regardless of your political views, it's pretty cool having the president at the game,” said Burrow. “Doesn't matter if you're a Democrat or a Republican, president at the game is pretty cool.”
He has a point, not many college athletes or even pro athletes can say they were playing in a game where the actual President of the United States was in attendance. An advisory was given out by the Federal Aviation Administration about Trump’s travel arrangements for the Alabama area beginning Saturday. Last year, the President went to the Alabama-Georgia game in January, staying for the entire first half before leaving. The Crimson Tide won in overtime 26-23 that day.
The game against these two undefeated teams begins on Saturday, November 9 at 3:30 p.m. in Tuscaloosa and will be broadcast by the CBS network. Alabama is favored to win with odds of -220 while LSU is the underdog on the road with odds of +180.
