New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been embroiled in numerous controversies since the middle of 2020 over a variety of issues including but not limited to sexual harassment and altering COVID-19 death total information.
Somehow Cuomo seemed to dodge the heat over the last few months but now that more women have publicly accused the Governor of inappropriate behavior, several big-name Democrats are calling for his resignation, including President Joe Biden.
It seems that Governor Cuomo is prepared to fight impeachment, even following his top aide’s resignation yesterday, and political sportsbook sites are now offering odds on how and when he will leave office.
The below odds from MyBookie suggest that Cuomo will not be the sitting Governor of New York at the end of this calendar year. Political forecasting site PredictIt shares MyBookie’s opinion and grants him a 20% chance of retaining office at the end of the year.
Will Andrew Cuomo Be Governor On Dec 31, 2021
- Yes +400
- No -700
Sportsbook sites are also confident that Andrew Cuomo will resign by November 2nd, and wagers on that occurrence will payout at $1 for every $3 risked.
Will Andrew Cuomo Resign Before November 2, 2021
- Yes -300
- No +175
If Cuomo opts to fight the impeachment charges, sports betting sites still believe that he will be ejected from office this November. An interesting side note to this political prop bet is that a wager on “no” and the +170 moneyline will win if Cuomo resigns at any point prior to November 2nd.
Will Andrew Cuomo Be Impeached Before November 2, 2021

The onslaught of Cuomo odds continues as the following line allows for wagers to be placed on what the Governor will be impeached for. Leading the political odds is his mounting sexual harassment claims, followed up by the COVID-19 data on nursing home fatalities.
What Will Andrew Cuomo Be Impeached For First

Governor Cuomo may have done regional sports gamblers a solid by passing additional avenues of legal sports betting in New York with his mobile sportsbook initiative, but don’t look for these odds at any of those domestic options.
Political betting is still exclusive to offshore sportsbooks like the ones we do sports betting site reviews for. There’s no specific law preventing domestic sportsbooks from partaking, they’ve just laid off following Las Vegas’s lead.
Speaking of lead, Letitia James is currently the chief odds getter in the following line to earn the DNC nod to become the next Governor of New York. Cuomo still has a fighting chance in third place with +850 odds.
Believers in Cuomo can lay some action on his moneyline and earn $8.50 for each $1 bet if he defies the election odds and wins the Democratic ticket for New York State.
