New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

  • New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been exposed for hiding accurate death totals for COVID-19.
  • Sports bettors are now betting against Governor Cuomo getting reelected in 2022, with -200 odds for him to lose.
  • Both Democrats and Republicans have slammed Cuomo following the reveal.

ALBANY, N.Y.Governor Andrew Cuomo is now facing heavy backlash after it has been revealed that he was underreporting the COVID-19 death totals in 2020.

His public reputation has been hit so bad by these revelations, that sports bettors are now wagering against him winning the 2022 election should he run again.

This is a stark change from how Presidential Election betting fans were viewing him just months ago when he was viewed fondly by citizens and the media.

At online sportsbooks, the NY Governor is now favored to lose the election should he chose to run for reelection in 2022.

Andrew Cuomo Re-Elected Governor in 2022 if Runs Odds

  • No -200
  • Yes +150

Underdog sports betting fans may want to lean in on the long odds for ‘Yes’, assuming that Cuomo will be able to bounce back from the public outcry, however, this situation does not appear to be going away anytime soon.

What has been revealed is that Governor Cuomo purposely withheld proper data from the Trump administration, indicating exactly how many patients died at a New York nursing home due to COVID-19.

“We were in a position where we weren’t sure if what we were going to give to the Department of Justice, or what we give to you guys, and what we start saying, was going to be used against us and we weren’t sure if there was going to be an investigation,” said, Melissa DeRosa, a top aid for the Cuomo administration.

Melissa DeRosa revealed the withholding information to several Democratic members in a phone call. Initially, it was reported that 8,500 elderly died in the nursing homes but has since been updated to over 15,000.

Cuomo’s main scrutiny is coming from how he publicly lashed out against the Trump administration for their handling of the pandemic, while the Governor himself has been covering up the real death totals in his state.

Public outcry from both parties has been constant, so legal sports betting fans looking to lean in on the longshot odds for Cuomo getting reelected would be truly betting against the odds.

Cuomo could find a way to sway the public yet again, and should he avoid impeachment, he has plenty of time to work to regain favor. Taking these odds now before they potentially shorten could be a good bet.
