    Default Oprah Winfrey - Next President 2020 - Best 26-1

    After last year being a disastrous punt on the General election I have decided to hedge my bets by putting a grand down at 26-1 on Oprah Winfrey.

    Now, that is of course a little way of, but when they start the process for selecting candidates in the summer I expect her to throw her hat in and the odds tumble allowing me to lay the bet for a decent amount.

    Mark my words, this one is a dead cert.

    .... a black woman for president?

    Not in the America I know.
    What the dems need is a white man who's NOT
    - socialist
    - atheist
    - pro-choice
    - called Clinton

    Basically an old style Republican from before the Tea Party loons. Maybe Jeb Bush should run as a democrat against Trump.....

    Oprah is at 12/1 on Betfair. So you're in the money already.
    Michelle Obama at 34/1
    Kanye West at 330

    I think she's going to throw her hat into the ring and I think she's going to have a good shot at getting a nomination. I doubt middle white America will get her past the post, but I reckon she's going to go for it judging by her GG speech.

    That's to back.

    You need to lay the bet to make money and that's still just a little high (plus no liquidity) at the moment.

    Best odds are here.

    And it looks like my grand just knocked the odds from 26-1 to 20-1.

    so you put a lay bet at lower and wait. Don't take the best price offered, make your won offer and wait for somebody too lazy. Just placing the bet unmatched affects the market.
    If you put £70 to lay at odds of 14, then the best 'to back' price is your odds of 14. Anyone who then backs it will pick your price as it's better than the 13.5 (currently) on offer.

    She'll get hammered if she goes up against Trump.

    If the problem was too much liberal elite in politics it's not going to get fixed by more liberal elite. That's like labour moving to the left because they can't beat the tories.
