In what should come as a surprise to few, current sitting president Joe Biden is the strong favorite to be the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee in 2024 at least according to MyBookie. According to the site’s updated betting markets page pertaining to the U.S. presidential election next year, President Biden is the solid favorite at -330. While we have covered these sorts of odds in this space before at SBS, this is the first time in 2023 that we have checked in with U.S. politics. Moreover, this is the first time we have taken a look at all the presidential candidates from one American political party as opposed to the whole race. Regarding the rest of the Democratic Party, MyBookie has betting markets for all kinds of contenders in the field from frontrunners (Biden, Vice President Kamala Harris) to longshots (Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock).
For this report, SBS will be going over the latest news from MyBookie along with more thoughts and notes about using the website.
As one might have surmised, the top of the betting markets for MyBookie’s Democratic Presidential nominees’ page features a slew of heavy hitters in the Democratic Party. As mentioned above, Biden leads the way at -330, followed by VP Harris at +1100. Rounding out the top three for the Dems is California Governor Gavin Newsom at +1200. Many experts in the field are predicting that Biden will make a return in 2024 to defend his presidential seat along with Harris being his running mate. Perhaps the only variable there is if the president’s age (80 years old at the time of this writing) will play a factor as looks to make another presidential run next year.
Regarding some of the other top contenders, former First Lady Michelle Obama is a somewhat surprising choice for the No. 4 spot on the list at +1600. While there have been no female presidents to date, Obama was very popular during his husband Barack’s eight-year term and still remains a significant cultural force to this day. Moving down the list, another former First Lady, Hillary Clinton (+2800), comes in at the five spot following a strong, but unsuccessful presidential bid in 2016. While it remains to be seen if Clinton will want to make a return run, it would not be out of the realm of reason here.
In addition to some usual political heavyweights for the party, the MyBookie page also has betting markets for interesting, and also peculiar, longshot picks. For instance, in the +10000 range, you will see contenders like Microsoft founder and world-renowned philanthropist, Bill Gates, alongside superstar actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. Moreover, another name to keep an eye on is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who is a U.S. Representative from New York and a rising star in the party.
There are a handful of other longshot picks here as well from MyBookie, including actor Will Smith and Megan Markle, the wife of the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry. An interesting note here as well, according to MyBookie, the last contender for the Democratic nomination is Kyrsten Sinema, the senior U.S. senator from Arizona. Sinema recently became an independent in December of last year and has her odds currently ranked at +13000.
