Presidential Debate

  • There are many prop bets for the final presidential debate posted on sportsbooks for political bettors to enjoy.
  • Joe Biden is favored at -150 odds to be seen wearing a mask during the debate while Donald Trump is favored at -1000 odds to not wear a mask during the debate.

WASHINGTON – The last and final Presidential Debate between President Donald Trump and Former Vice President Joe Biden is set for Thursday night.

Online sportsbooks have posted many Presidential Debate prop bets in anticipation of this crucial event. It will be the last time the public gets to see both candidates on the same stage before Election Day.

One of the tightest odds featured at legal sports betting sites has to do with Biden and his mask.

Will Biden be shown wearing a mask during the broadcast?

  • Yes -150
  • No +110

Throughout this coronavirus pandemic, Biden has been a strong proponent for mask-wearing and has been seen wearing his mask numerous times at rallies and on television ads.

Biden and Trump have seemed to have differing opinions when it comes to the masks so it is likely to be brought up while discussing COVID-19. Trump spoke on the difference between the two in the last debate.

“I don’t wear a mask like him,” said Trump gesturing toward Biden. “Every time you see him, he’s got a mask. He could be speaking 200 feet away from him and he shows up with the biggest mask I’ve ever seen.”

That comment may be the reason why the same betting line for Trump has such a stark contrast in the odds.

Will Trump be shown wearing a mask during the broadcast?

  • No -1000
  • Yes +550

Days after the first debate, Trump announced that he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus which caused him to be seen with a mask more than normal.

Not seeing Trump in a mask is an outright favorite for this bet possibly because last week when Trump was asked if after battling the virus his feelings on masks had changed, he confirmed it had not.

“No, because I was okay with the masks,” said Trump. ”I was good with it, but I’ve heard very different stories on masks.”

Debate Prop Bets About Racial Issues

Will Trump be asked about “white supremacists”?

  • Yes -150
  • No +110

Will Trump denounce white supremacists?

  • No -120
  • Yes -120

Denouncing White supremacists was a big takeaway from the first debate because the President did not unequivocally denounce white supremacy at the time.

After the debate, he made statements to clearly make his point and in last week’s town hall, he officially denounced white supremacy. It is a -150 favorite that he will be asked about white supremacists again but mainly because it was such a huge topic after the last debate.

Odds are even when it comes to Trump denouncing the group again because it might be a lot to expect the president to repeat himself.

Will Trump say Black Lives Matter?

  • No -1000
  • Yes +550

One of the topics of the debate is Race in America after a summer filled with racial unrest around the country with Black Lives Matter resurging and in the center of it all.

President Trump has not been in support of the movement or organization and recently has criticized the Black Lives Matter in a campaign event for Black voters.

“It’s really hurting the Black community,” said Trump. “This is an unusual name for an organization whose ideology and tactics are right now destroying many Black lives.”

These words were said less than a month ago and could easily be questioned during the race segment of the debate making it a little more likely for Trump to say “Black Lives Matter”.
