What is more likely to transpire in 2018; the Golden State Warriors winning the National Basketball Championship in June or President Trump being impeached? Odds to Win 2018 NBA Championship (Jan 30).
The latest odds update by Westgate of Las Vegas has the Warriors at 2-to-5 to win their second straight title. According to Newsweek “Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says the firing of special counsel Robert Mueller by President Donald Trump would likely result in the end of the billionaire’s run as the nation’s commander in chief, and oddsmakers appear to agree.”
The Newsweek piece went on to outline that “Graham, who said he would support legislation before Congress that would protect special counsels from firings with a review process, spoke Sunday about a report saying that Trump ordered Mueller’s dismissal in June but changed his mind after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign.”
“I’m sure that there will be an investigation around whether or not President Trump did try to fire Mr. Mueller. But we know that he didn’t fire Mr. Mueller. We know that if he tried to, it would be the end of his presidency,” Graham told ABC News on Sunday. “It’s pretty clear to me that everybody in the White House knows it would be the end of President Trump’s presidency if he fired Mr. Mueller.”
Most noteworthy the global oddsmakers that offer odds on specific events like the Oscars, Grammy’s and also political situations “reflected Graham’s position that Trump’s presidency could face the threat of impeachment this year amid more and more revelations from Mueller’s investigation.”
Trump’s chances of impeachment in 2018 currently sit at 9-4, according to most European sportsbooks, while the odds drop to 4-1 in 2019 and 16-1 in 2020.
“The odds Trump will be impeached during his first term sit at “even,” compared with 8-11 odds he won’t be impeached. Furthermore the odds of Trump’s impeachment in his first term were previously listed earlier this month at 4-7, or 63.6 percent, but the odds were even that impeachment occurs in 2018.”
