They say a week is a long time in politics and perhaps that old adage has rung especially true for those living in the United States this week. With Joe Biden set to be sworn in as the new President on the 20th January, some people are already considering who could eventually replace Biden as president four years down the line.

However, it is not just the political editors and reporters that are speculating on what could happen then. Some sports betting sites are already offering odds on who will be the person elected as President in four years’ time and it is fair to say that there are some very unusual bets on offer, in amongst those that you would expect.

So just who are some of the more left of field candidates you can bet on becoming President of the United States in 2024? We take a look at some of the usual and not so usual suspects below!

Bet365 Odds on US President Elections 2024

There’s no doubt that one of the best things about betting at bet365 Sport is that the site offers such an extensive range of sports betting options. Often that means you can overlook the non=sports betting options such as Politics.

With the US Presidency still very much a hot topic, who are some of the names bet365 Sport reckons could be in the running to replace Joe Biden in four year’s time?

The Usual Suspects

Now of course, in amongst some of the more left field suggestions, are the people you would expect to see on this list. Joe Biden’s vice-president Kamala Harris is the 7/2 favourite at the moment, with Biden himself a 4/1 shot for a second term. Donald Trump has drifted to 6/1 after the past week, while his vice-president Mike Pence is a 14/1 shot alongside Nikki Haley.

Others of note here are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ivanka Trump who are both 25/1 shots. Donald Trump Jr is a 50/1 shot, while the likes of Michelle Obama (33/1), Ted Cruz (33/1), Pete Buttigieg (40/1), Elizabeth Warren (40/1) , Mike Pompeo (40/1)  and Ron DeSantis (40/1) are all worth noting.

But to be honest, those bets are pretty safe and in truth, we much prefer some of the left of field options you can back here, including some that are staggeringly short odds.

The Not-So Usual Suspects

Let’s start with those that are the longest odds and move towards those that are a very short-price considering the office in question.

Jeff Bezos (Amazon Founder – 250/1)

If you think having an extremely wealthy businessman has gone swimmingly well for the United States, so much so that they’d like to have the same again, then Jeff Bezos, the owner of Amazon could be worth a punt at 250/1. Admittedly, a costly divorce from his wife has seen his personal fortune take a dent, but could he be tempted to take the Trump route into politics?

Elon Musk (Tesla and Space X boss – 100/1)

Not content with developing the next generation of electric cars and striving to put man on Mars, could Billionaire tech-whizz Elon Musk be elected President of the United States in 2024? Musk, now rated by some to be even richer than Jeff Bezos, could have other plans though with hope of a manned mission to Mars by 2024. He may find conquering the Red Planet more of an appeal than running the U.S.

George Clooney (Actor – 100/1)

The United States has had an actor as president before, Ronald Reagan in the 1980s, so George Clooney is not as big a stretch as many would think. Clooney is a vocal political and human rights activist with his wife Amal and although he has shown no signs of wanting to enter the political field, a lot can change in four years.

Oprah Winfrey (Actor, TV Presenter – 100/1)

Perhaps few American stars have such a loyal and diverse following as Oprah Winfrey. The Colour Purple Oscar nominee, has made herself a fortune as a TV presenter and her widespread popularity has led to many claiming that she could make a successful move into politics. Even if she herself has not expressed a desire to do so as yet.

Kanye West (Musician – 100/1)

With his divorce from Kim Kardashian set to be finalised, musician Kanye West could follow his idol Donald Trump into politics. He even ran for president in 2020, before getting behind Donald Trump. Outspoke, controversial and a divisive figure, West has already indicated that he wants to run for president in 2024. Who that is for, and whether that is as an independent, remains to be seen.

Tucker Carlson (Conservative TV News Host – 33/1)

One of the most popular conservative news presenters and a stalwart of Fox News, Tucker Carlson has become one of the most vocal supporters of Trump in recent times and his popularity amongst Republican voters would be seen as a unifying factor. The Lincoln Project said that they feel Tucker Carlson is a genuine front-runner for the Republican Nomination for President in 2024. That explains why his odds are now 33/1.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Actor/Wrestler – 28/1)

Dwayne Johnson’s impassioned video after George Floyd’s death sparked the Black Lives Matter protest has certainly struck a chord with Americans. So much so that he has been backed so often by punters for the 2024 Presidency that he is now just 28/1. Johnson has repeatedly ruled out entering politics up until now, but who knows what will happen in four years.
