Mehmet Oz in Trouble, Kathy Barnette Now Pays Under 2-1 Odds

Mehmet Oz is making a move in the Pennsylvania Republican primary race, and political bettors have taken notice.


BetOnline initially opened Oz as a +1000 underdog to win the primary. Now, he’s the odds-on favorite with -135 odds.

But wildcard candidate Kathy Barnette (pictured below) is coming up quicker than Rich Strike in the Kentucky Derby.  Oz may be the former US President Donald Trump's preferred candidate but Barnette checks off all the boxes.  She's even a Trump supporter.

"As much as people support Trump, hey, he ain't God," said Gary Smith, chair for the Constitutional Republicans of Western Pennsylvania in Jefferson County who personally plans to vote for Barnette. "He made a mistake. I think it is one of the worst mistakes he has made in his endorsements because Oz is everything we are not."


Smith added: "This is Trump country. A year later, all the signs are still up. ... But I would say right now, 90 some percent of our group is probably going to vote for her."

Oz is not favored to win the Senate race in Pennsylvania as the implied probability of him defeating the Democratic incumbent is just 35.1%, at least according to the odds below.

Along with the Senate, below you will find odds for key House of Representatives and Governor races.


Republican Primary Odds

Mehmet Oz -135

Kathy Barnette +165

David McCormick +370

Carla Sands +10000

Jeff Bartos +10000

George Bochetto +12500

Keith Rothfus +12500


Will ‘Dr Oz’ be Elected to the Senate?

YES: +185

NO: -275


“Major market moves here. McCormick was early favorite with -165 odds. Bettors started backing Oz at +425 for the primary and +700 to win the state-wide race so the oddsmakers have made adjustments to set him as the favorite. Barnette has also made a big move, coming down from +1200 initial odds.”


Will Lisa Murkowski be re-elected in Alaska?

YES: -300

NO: +200


House of Representatives


Will Madison Cawthon be re-elected in North Carolina?

YES: -140

NO: +100


“Cawthorn is mired in a heap of scandal and facing a tough primary challenger. If he wins, as early bettors are banking on, he’ll be a very heavy favorite to be re-elected.”
