State of the Union Odds

We huffed and we puffed and we blew the house in, but Gambling911.com couldn't get any of our friends to offer odds on US President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.

Once again, Paddy Power came through.  This is the same online betting company that has offered tasteless odds in the past such as whether Obama will be assassinated.  However, they are still the best marketers in the industry bar none.

The problem for US gamblers....Paddy Power's State of the Union speech odds are all for naught.  That's because Ireland's largest bookmaker does not accept bets from US citizens. 

Granted they should get some action on this offering.  Obama's popularity worldwide may be more so than at home these days. 

They were offering the following State of the Union odds:

11/2 Under 45 Min

8/1 45.00 - 47 Min

5/1 47.01 - 49 Min
