September Democratic Debate prop bets are now available

democratic debate september

Update 9/12/19: Even more prop bets are now available for tonight’s debate! We’ve included the odds for each prop, and which sportsbook has them, immediately following yesterday’s story.

While it’s always important to listen to what candidates say during political primaries, BetOnline’s prop bets for the third Democratic debate place a greater emphasis on the matter.

Overall, the political bets for the debate range from how long candidates will speak to their polling averages next week.

Nevertheless, a majority of the props focus on what the candidates will say and how often they will say it, including key phrases like “background checks” and “climate change.”

Within minutes of the Detroit debate, protesters interrupted the debate, yelling “Fire Pantaleo,” in reference to Staten Island police officer Daniel Pantaleo and his 2014 killing of Eric Garner. In Houston, however, -300 odds say that the debate will not be stopped by any political challengers.
