Folks are betting on 'Bidenisms', gaffes during Biden's Kimmel appearance

President Joe Biden will do the first late-night appearance of his presidency on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Wednesday, June 8, and pundits on both sides of the isle can only wait in anticipation to hear the President speak to the American people in a more casual environment, compared to the typically tight script of the Biden White House. 


Some Americans, however are wasting no time on speculation and are putting their money to ‘work’ by betting on Biden’s propensity to make often humorous gaffes and “Bidenisms.”


You heard right – the online sportsbook, has posted betting odds on Biden’s Kimmel Live appearance – including how many times the President will say “C’mon, Man!” (hint: the odds are currently favoring the ‘over’ 3.5 times); how many mentions of being from Scranton, PA he will make; or if he will mistakenly refer to Jimmy Kimmel as late-night rival “Jimmy Fallon,” amongst several other ‘proposition’ bets, or “props” as they are known in the business.


“You can even bet on his use of the phrase ‘the fact of the matter,’ or his use of the word ‘folks’, which is almost like free money,” quips Tim Williams, director of public relations for BetUS. “Win or lose, I think we’re all hoping for a little humor Wednesday night after so much somber news at home and around the world lately.”


Here is a rundown of some of the current odds:
