In October, Elon Musk bought the social media platform Twitter for $44 Billion, but his tenure has been rocky thus far. As a result, Musk posted a poll on his Twitter account Sunday evening asking his followers to weigh in on whether he should step down as the head of the company.
The poll resulted in “yes” receiving 57.5% of the vote, and as of last night, it appears that Musk is going to honor the will of the people and resign.
I will resign as CEO as soon as I find someone foolish enough to take the job! After that, I will just run the software & servers teams.

Now there are options for Elon Musk betting that allow for action on the next CEO of Twitter, with several candidates featuring profitable moneyline odds.
Next Twitter CEO After Elon Musk
- Sriram Krishnan +175
- Jason Calacanis +250
- David Sacks +250
- David Marcus +1000
- Sarah Friar +1600
- Sheryl Sandberg +2000
- Jack Dorsey +2000
- Mike Schroepfer +3300
- Jared Kushner +3300
- Parag Agrawal +3300
- Edward Snowden +10000
The potential CEO with the most favorable odds is Sriram Krishnan, with a +175 moneyline. He is a partner at the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz and has been assisting Musk with Twitter since the new regime took over.
Even though Krishnan is the most likely candidate to get the job, nearly two-to-one payouts can be won by betting on him. A $1 bet on his +175 moneyline will win $2.75 if he becomes the next CEO of Twitter.
Also on the boards is Jared Kushner, spouse of Ivanka Trump, although entertainment prop bets are granting him odds that suggest his hiring is incredibly unlikely.
Once Musk exits his leadership role at Twitter, he will need to place his focus on another venture. Will it be SpaceX or Tesla that grabs his attention, or could Musk purchase another company altogether?
Legal entertainment sportsbook sites have odds posted for that possibility as well, and it appears that he could be interested in attaining a professional sports team.
Next Company Purchased By Elon Musk
- Any NFL Franchise +300
- Any Premier League Club +400
- Amazon +450
- Apple +600
- Microsoft +1200
- Disney +1200
- Facebook +1500
- TikTok +2000
- Peloton +2000
- YouTube +2000
- Walmart +3000
- Coca-Cola +3500
Once again, all options on the board have the potential to deliver some serious profits if winners are selected. The outcome with the highest potential of occurring is Musk purchasing an NFL franchise. Coming in second is a Premier League club.
Elon Musk was in attendance at last Sunday’s World Cup Final in Qatar, so perhaps that is spurring on oddsmakers’ beliefs that he’s got a keen interest in owning a pro soccer franchise.
After that, there are a series of massive software, entertainment, social media, and commerce providers that would cost significantly more than a pro sports franchise.
One thing to be mindful of with either of the above two prop bets that we’ve posted here is that there is the chance that none of the potential CEOs or companies listed actually win. In that case, all bets are losers.
Check the fine print on all entertainment prop bets because some offshore sportsbooks allow for members to create custom wagers if they are approved by the management team.
