Odds Posted for Biden v. Trump Golf Match

During the debate on Thursday, the debate went off the rails for a few minutes while the candidates debated over their handicaps.

Trump is fresh off a club championship, while Biden would probably fall down while swinging.

Even though Biden claimed to have a six, then eight-handicap, he is a monumental underdog in the match.

The Longshot

Some of Trump’s backers loved this moment, but from a political perspective, it was the moment of the debate that really went off the rails.

Most of the American people could care less about who has a better handicap, but that part of the debate has taken on a life of its own.

One pro golfer offered to sponsor the match and others have chimed in after having personally played with Trump.

And Trump has never been shy about posting his great moments on the golf course, all of which led to odds being posted on the match.

To that point, BetOnline posted Trump as a 1:33 favorite in the match.

For bettors, this would mean that in order to win a $100 profit on Trump, you would have to wager $3,300.

The odds are always skewed, and in this case, Biden would be a 12:1 payoff, which means that if you bet $100 on Biden, you would win $1,200 if he managed to upset Trump.

Joe Biden also said he could outdrive Trump, and Trump was installed as a 1:25 favorite, while Biden had a 10:1 payoff.

Biden also stated that he would play Trump only if they carried their bags, and I think we can all agree that there is no way Joe Biden could make it 18 holes with a golf bag over his shoulder.

To my earlier point about the debate going off the rails, even Trump recognized this served no purpose, telling Joe Biden after his challenge, "That's the biggest lie—that he was a six handicap—of all...I've seen your swing. I know your swing. Let's not act like children."

I would love to see the match, just to see how many times Joe Biden tipped over on the course.
