Two strategies for surviving
With so much uncertainty this year, we have two tactics to help you come out on top, no matter what happens on November 3rd.
PICK YOUR STRATEGY!
Politics betting is always an exciting way to place your wagers. With US elections garnering the most excitement worldwide, it is no wonder that the 2020 election has become a betting magnet. These strategies will help you navigate this excitement at any sportsbook. Make sure to use a betting site our team has vetted and recommends.

* In this scenario, you would make one bet with your own money and one with bonus money. Depending on which way you bet, i.e if your own money bet or the bonus money bet is correct, your winnings could be subject to wagering requirements, which typically start from 5x. Read terms & conditions at each sportsbook to make sure that you understand the wagering requirements.
