The odds for the 2024 Presidential Election are out at DraftKings sportsbook, and the field is absolutely ridiculous. Sports bettors in Ontario can wager on the candidate they believe will win the vote in two years.
Political betting lines are nothing new.
In fact, one lucky bettor actually won $1.5 million in the 2016 Presidential Election when Donald Trump upended Hillary Clinton to become the nation’s 45th leader.
Trump makes a repeat appearance in this field, actually coming in at the top of the list. He boasts +250 odds to land a second term. Current President Joe Biden comes in with the third-best odds at +550 while his VP Kamala Harris enters with +1200 odds.
A number of interesting names follow, ranging from politicians, to athletes, to actors, and celebrities in between.
Take a look at the opening field.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, George Clooney, and Kanye West are certainly some notable names. Clooney and West come in at +10000 while The Rock opens at +4000.
Facebook and Amazon founders Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos also made the cut, as did the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.
As you can imagine, the response on social media was lively.
Fans react to the ’24 Presidential Election odds
Sports bettors were quick to point out some of the notable names in the field. The Rock is a popular contender.
Others received some support, too.
This country is so fucking stupid that those Kanye odds are EASY money. https://t.co/xcXvtcHbH8

This list will change between now and the election. Hopefully, the list of candidates will improve.
