I'm betting a coup will start at 2 AM on November 9th.

I had a chicken coup at one time, or was it coop. I don't remember, lots of free eggs though.

Everyone's heard of a "baker's dozen" but have you heard of an "EvenBob Dozen?"

It comes with 14 1/2 eggs, and they're laid by a rooster.

My political wager is that this thread doesn’t stay open through the midterm election.

I'd take the other side of your wager. It is a legitimate topic. And so far nobody is abusing the thread to post anything inflammatory or engage in political banter.

Personally, I would be pretty loose about allowing political statements in a thread specifically dedicated to election outcomes. Injecting talk about politics into a thread about roulette would be disrespectful to people who want to talk about roulette. But anyone who chimes in here should be prepared for things to potentially get political.

I predict that few if any people will be found to have made illegal comments in this thread. And furthermore that any action taken against them will not threaten the existence of the thread itself.

I dunno. As I recall, the 2020 election wagering thread didn't even make it to the Nevada primary.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I don't think his tenure as Transportation Secretary has done any good for his presidential prospects.

Political statement. Given a specific violation and warning just yesterday, three-day suspension.

As a reminder, you may state what you think are good bets in this thread, but you can't state reasons why.

The most money I’ve ever wagered on a single outcome was Biden to win. Bovada was practically begging people to stop betting Trump and that just made more bet on him.

Anyway, nothing too great on bovada for midterms. I’d bet on Dems to win GA senate by less than 1% at +375, but I don’t know how runoff rules would work.

A lot of the senate stuff is down. Republicans at +110 was pretty good. If democrats can get into +120 or better, I’ll probably take a swing.

Kelly to win Senate at 54 cents on Predictit is probably where I am going to end up.

Bovada has some odd choices for some of their Democratic Presidential nominees....

Hillary Clinton? Michelle Obama? AOC? Jon Stewart? Zero chance any of those people are running.

And Tulsi Gabbard? LOL

The Republican list is just as nonsensical....

Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump, Jr., Jared Kushner, Kanye West.... LOL

It's like they just pull random names out of a hat.

There are some gems in the overall Presidential winner list, too, but I won't spoil it for you....

Mark Cuban has said he would like to run for president but won't until he can convince his wife. Apparently, she doesn't like the spotlight.

If he ran, I would guess he would be the favorite.
