It has been a year now that Donald Trump became the new president of the United States of America and since then people have been divided into two groups, those that love him and those that hate him.

It is true that he can be a bit harsh on some matters and this is why new faces have started appearing in the politics industry.

One of those is the media sensation, Oprah Winfrey, and the following question has already started popping up all around the Internet:

Will Oprah run for president?

As this is mainly a site dedicated to betting we are going to talk about the betting odds that are currently available and how you can start betting today.

The Next US President

From the first day, a new president gets elected in the US, and anywhere else in the world in general, conversations about how he/she is going to perform in such a seat start appearing.

When Barack Obama was elected president back in 2009, not just American citizens but people all over the world went into a shock just because of his skin color.

So the majority of the population started having second thoughts about having voted for him and they were scared of how he was going to lead the nation.

Long story short, a man who was born an American but with the appearance of an African American turn out to be one of the best, if not the absolute best person to ever sit in the presidential chair.

But after 8 years that passed from that day, Obama was succeeded by Donald Trump after having been elected president of the US twice.

Due to the rise of media and especially television, various personalities have started having thought about running for president.

One of them is the woman we all know and love, Oprah Winfrey.

But how did this whole thing happen? Did Oprah woke up one day and just went “I want to run for president”?

Of course not, this kind of thoughts don’t come to mind like that. Something sparkled in her.

Do not forget that she isn’t just another woman.

She is an idol and through her television show, she has helped millions of people overcome or soothe various problems they may have had. Isn’t that what a president should do?

Help the nation’s citizens and make sure everything is working like a well-oiled machine?

Will Oprah Run For President (Bovada Odds)

Since we are talking about the United States it would be only suitable to present all the odds provided exclusively by the site of Bovada which is believed to be the number one Sportsbook and gambling site operating in the US.

Before diving into the presidential odds offered by the site all the fuzz has driven to a creation of a brand new betting option.

That option is “Will Oprah Winfrey run for president?” and as expected you can only bet on Yes or No.

So how are the odds shaped here?

The supporting option goes by the fairly generous +130 odd while the “No” has been assigned a -160.

So, according to Bovada, Oprah will most probably not run for president in the next election.

Notice we said, “next election” and not the 2020 presidential election.

There is a reason for that which you may have already heard of but we are going to discuss this later.

As of now, the only thing everybody wants to find out in which the 2020 US presidential election candidates are.

2020 US Presidential Election Candidates

Well, apart from what we already know there are various conversations all over the media regarding who is going to run for president in the 2020 elections.

If everything goes as planned, we are most likely going to see Donald Trump running again followed by :

  • Massachusetts’ senator; Elizabeth Warren
  • Vermont’s senator; Bernie Sanders.

However, there are tens of other possible candidates and some of the names you are about to hear are most likely going to shake you a bit.

If you take a look at the 2020 presidential election prediction you will see that apart from Oprah Winfrey there are multiple other famous people that do not operate in politics.

One of those is Dwayne Johnson, yeah, The Rock, this Dwayne Johnson.

It is common knowledge that he has been saying some stuff about running for president, especially before releasing a new movie, probably to get people talking about him to sell more tickets.

Truth is that he is a great individual in real life and not as tough as he looks on camera.

Mark Zuckerberg, the owner, co-creator, and CEO of Facebook thinks of running for president as well.

That being said, his case is a bit different than this of the other possible candidates. Let’s say that he would be up for it.

Next up and the number one in our prediction is Michelle Obama, the wife of previous US president, Barack Obama.

Even though she doesn’t talk a lot about doing such a thing, Michelle has never said “No” for sure when asked if she would ever desire to run for president.

2020 Presidential Odds Bovada

How do all of these look in the odds table? Let’s see what Bovada has in store for each of them.

As expected Donald Trump is the favorite with an odd of +300.

He is followed by Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders who have been assigned +800 and +1000 odds respectively.

Next up is the woman this whole article is dedicated to.

Oprah Winfrey stands in the 4th place on the odds table as she is offered a +1000 odd. Michelle Obama is currently on a +2200 odd.

It may come as a surprise but Hillary Clinton is offered only a +3300. Considering she was one of the top two candidates for the 2017 US presidential election it would be very strange if she wouldn’t try at least one more time. Personally speaking, we believe that Bovada is wrong on this one.

We would advise you to place some money on this selection, you never know what is going to happen.

If you were to bet only 10$ you could have a 330$ profit.

The rest of the odds aren’t that interesting to even mention at this time as it is still very early to know for sure who is going to participate in the elections.

When Will the Next US Presidential Elections Happen?

If everything goes as it is normally supposed to be the next presidential elections will most likely take place on November 3rd, 2020.

However, as the popular saying goes, history repeats itself.

There is a good reason we are saying that but before we explain let us remind you what happened about 20 years ago.

President at the time, Bill Clinton, was accused of having a romantic affair with a White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.

After an investigation, that accusation turned out to be true. So Bill Clinton was impeached.

Fast forward 20 years and the current US president, Donald Trump is accused of having been with about 20 different women over the last two years.

According to the oath, each president swears by, doing such a thing would be considered an act of perjury and could result in impeachment if turned out to be true.

Will Oprah run for president? This question is most likely to have “Yes” as an answer due to all the various reasons previously mentioned in the article.

There are various other betting options as well.

Some of them are whether Donald Trump is going to finish his 1st term as president of the United States and whether he is going to resign his presidency in his first term.

The odds for these two are +120 and +125 respectively.

What did the Speech have to do with all that?

Most of you probably didn’t catch the real meaning of her speech at the Golden Globes.

It wasn’t about the woman who got raped while returning home from church.

It was about how people have been always taking advantage of other people while climbing the social ladder while others are doing all the hard work.

Did you see how many people started crying while she was finishing her speech?

That happened because something in them felt that injustice we all encounter in our daily lives.

Someone that got a promotion while another person deserved it more.

Someone who rejects a plate of food while other people starve to death.

But this award was well deserved and it went to the woman, the first black woman to ever get it, Oprah Winfrey.

And it was the ONLY woman who was the best one and deserved to get it.


So if you ask us, will Oprah run for president, then yes, of course, our answer will be that she can, should, and absolutely must run for president because she is one of the few people in the US that truly deserve such an honour.

Head over to Bovada and bet on Oprah today, who knows, you might get lucky!
