Donald Trump Prime-Time Address: You Can Bet on Falsehoods, Speech Length and Make Lots of Other Wagers

You can place a number of bets on President Donald Trump's prime-time address on Tuesday night. Because it is 2019 and because of course, why not?

Trump is expected to deliver a speech on immigration and border security amid the prolonged partial government shutdown sparked by his demand for funding his long-promised border wall. 

You can place a wager on anything from how many false statements the president will make to how long the speech will run. For instance, Bookmaker.eu set the over/under for Trump lies at 3.5, with -285 odds for the over and +220 odds for the under.
