The result was $276,424 paid out to the 92% of bettors who correctly wagered the OVER 3.5. 

"It's a bad day for Truthiness and Bookmaker," odds consultant John Lester told Buzzfeed. "We knew we were in trouble early with this one."

Lester said Bookmaker expected Trump to lie, but that it had also factored in the time constraints the president would be under in delivering Tuesday's speech.

"We figured the president's strategy going in would be a bit of fear mongering to create pressure on the Democrats to approve the funding of the wall (or barrier), however the president was also constrained by an approximate 8-minute time limit," Lester said. "With all the cable networks agreeing to air the speech, it came down to, how many times is the president willing to exaggerate the truth to accomplish his agenda, when he knows the world will be scrutinizing his every word?"

The bet maximum was set at $2000 but some customers wagered more on request.
