Entertainment And Elections Betting

Sportsbooks don’t always focus on sports.  Odds for elections and entertainment awards are becoming increasingly popular.

The majority of the odds offered by sportsbooks like Pinnacle.com, for example are for sports, but a growing number are now coming from non-sporting events such as pop culture, entertainment, and elections outcomes.

Examples of popular past entertainment and elections bets:

Winner of the 2012 American Presidential Election

The name of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s second royal baby (Charlotte is the favourite at 4.50, Ringo is a longshot at 501.0)

Best Actor, Best Picture etc. at the Oscars
