Streaming giant Netflix has seen its stock price tumble in recent days, as much as 35%.  The company is the latest to join the betting markets with latest odds on whether it will make critical moves to cut losses.

  • Will Netflix be acquired by another company before the end of 2022?  YES 5-1
  • Will Netflix offer an ad-support model before the end of 2022? YES 1-10
  • Will Netflix announce crackdown on password sharing before July 1, 2022?

$50 billion was wiped off the company's market cap this week.  Changes are inevitable, and the oddsmakers are taking notice.

Pressing concerns right now appear to be centered on the need to include an ad-support model while eliminating password sharing.  Increased competition has also impacted Netflix subscription growth.

"We really see that second group as a tremendous opportunity, because they're clearly well qualified," Netflix's Chief Operating Officer Greg Peters said during Tuesday's earnings call. "And so now our job is to better translate that viewing and the value that those consumers are getting into revenue."


Greg Abbott Remains a "Lock" Amidst Costly Blunder

Texas Governor Greg Abbott was coming in at -900 odds to win re-election in November, beating his Democratic opponent Beto O'rourkeA costly error could impact the odds, though up to now Abbott has proven to be teflon.

The Republicn Governor's short-lived policy of requiring state troopers to conduct secondary inspections of trucks crossing the Texas border from Mexico cost the United States almost $9 billion in just 10 days, Axios reported Tuesday.  The policy, which Abbott enacted on April 6, snarled truck traffic at the border and has since been ended.

While Republicans are mostly favored to take upcoming Governor races in all but New York, these races are surprisingly tight (within -300).
