Inauguration Day Prop Bets: Length Of Joe Biden's Speech, Lady Gaga's Hair Color And More

On Wednesday, Jan. 20, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. People around the world will be watching this historic transformation of power and people outside the U.S. can do something that Americans can’t do on inauguration day — place wagers on prop bets.

Despite the rise of online sports betting in the U.S. from companies like DraftKings Inc (NASDAQ: DKNG), Penn National Gaming (NASDAQ: PENN) and FanDuel, Americans are not able to place wagers on political events.
