Bookies Shorten Odds on Mark Zuckerberg Running for President
While there is a long way to go before the next US presidential elections, bookmakers are busy accepting bets and updating markets accordingly.
Recently Paddy Power reduced the odds of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg winning the election from 25/1 to 16/1 despite the fact that Zuckerberg hasn’t expressed any interests in making a move into politics. However, his odds put him ahead of more likely candidates such as Hillary Clinton who is now at 50/1.
Despite the many controversies surrounding his presidency, Donald Trump is still clear favourite to win the next election at many bookies with odds of around 2/1 at William Hill, Bet365 and more. His closest opponent is Mike Pence who is at 7/1, followed by Elizabeth Warren at 9/1. The person with the longest odds, at 300/1, is UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
