Americans love to gamble. This year, for our own safety, Democratic rulers have shut down all the major things we like to bet on: March Madness, the NBA finals, the Stanley Cup, and Major League Baseball. All of these decisions were based on science, and are for our own good.
Occasionally, one can see Vegas bookmakers setting odds on non-sporting events, notably presidential elections. You can look up the odds and place your bet on either Joe Biden, Kanye West, or Trump (the three major candidates). The new rage is betting on the date of Ghislaine Maxwell’s suicide. The betting lingo, though, can be daunting for the novice bettor. NPC Daily is here to help with a glossary and explanation of the different types of betting one can make for this upcoming event. Here goes:
“Over-under” is a line drawn by bookmakers; bettors can choose “over”, meaning that they believe Maxwell will last past the line, or under, meaning that the bettor believes that Maxwell won’t still be alive on the date set by the line. The current over/under line date for her suicide is July 21st. So, if you choose “the over”, you are betting that Ghislaine Maxwell is still alive on July 22; if she is you collect; if her suicide happens before July 21st, you’d lose.
“Money-line”: A money line represents the amount of money you need to bet to make a hundred dollars if you are betting on a favorite. If you are betting on an underdog, such as a bet that Ghislaine Maxwell actually does not die in custody, you will see a “+” before the line. Right now that number is +7500. So if you bet a $100 that Ms. Maxwell will not be accidentally Arkancided, and somehow she lived, you would win $7500.
“Parlay”: (sometimes called a “combo”) is a single bet that links together two or more individual wagers and is dependent on all of those wagers winning together. The odds of two things happening are longer odds together than either is independently. Example, you bet on Ghislaine Maxwell getting suicided, and parlay that with a bet that James Comey gets indicted. If both happen, you make big money.
Other popular bets this year include whether Thanksgiving will be cancelled (currently -500, so you would have to bet $500 to get back $100) , and whether Democrats will succeed in banning all major religious Holidays and replacing them with Juneteenth (currently -750 on most Vegas lines).
We hope this helps. Diversity is our strength.
