- The first Democratic debates take place Wednesday (Jun. 26) and Thursday (Jun. 27) in Miami, FL
- The field is 20-candidates deep, necessitating two separate debates with 10 candidates in each session
- We have gathered all the props that bettors can wager on in the build up
Tonight and tomorrow (Jun. 26-27) in the sweltering heat of Miami, Fl., the 20 Democrats hoping to earn their party’s nomination for the Presidency will meet face to face on a debate stage for the first time.
Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren enter as the frontrunners to challenge Trump in 2020, but this is just the nascency of primary season. One slip-up, one insensitive comment, one awkward scream can bring a candidate down at a moment’s notice.
Per usual, online sportsbooks have posted a number of prop bets related to the debates.
As a sort of public service — hey, maybe we should run for office! — our political team has gathered all the available wagers. Below, you can find every proposition you can bet on tonight and tomorrow, along with the up-to-date odds, and where you can bet on it.
They are grouped into the following sections:
