Political junkies and football fans will have ample opportunity to cash in on Sunday with a host of prop bets that blend the Super Bowl with the latest happenings in Washington, D.C.

Bettors at BetDSI Sportbook can wager on how prodigious President Trump’s use of Twitter will be on game day, or whether the winning team will visit the White House — in addition to bets on the actual game between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots.

There are long shot odds that Trump will go to the game in Atlanta, with the money line at -1500 that Trump will not attend and +800 that he will.

{mosads}This means a better would win $800 on a $100 bet that Trump will attend the game, and that a better would have to place a $1,500 bet to win $100 that Trump does not attend the game.

The president attended the 2018 college football title game in Atlanta, but not last year’s Super Bowl in Minnesota.

Before the game kicks off, bettors can wager on -700 odds that any player will take a knee during the national anthem, or +400 odds that no players will take a knee.

Trump has been an outspoken critic of players protesting social justice issues during the anthem, though few players took part in the demonstrations this season.

The over/under on how many times Trump will tweet during the game is set at one, so bettors can wager whether he’ll tweet two or more times, or whether he’ll stay off the platform for the entirety of the game. Odds are -115 for both bets.

A pair of prop bets compare Trump’s performance and the recent government shutdown to in-game events.

Odds that the length of the shutdown will be greater than the yardage of Sunday’s longest touchdown are +110, while odds of the longest touchdown being greater comes in at -140.

BetDSI offers -140 odds that the yardage of the longest field goal in Sunday’s game will be greater than Trump’s approval rating in the Rasmussen poll released on the Monday after the Super Bowl. Odds are at +110 that Trump’s approval rating will be higher.

The president had an approval rating of 45 percent as of Tuesday’s Rasmussen poll.

The outcome of two other bets will be determined after the game concludes.

Odds are listed at -150 that Trump will congratulate the winning team via Twitter by midnight Sunday, and +120 that he won’t issue a congratulatory tweet by then. Last year, Trump congratulated the champion Eagles on the night of their win at 10:54 p.m.

BetDSI lists the odds of the winning team making a trip to the White House at -200 for yes, and +150 for no. The Patriots visited Trump at the White House after the team’s 2017 victory, but the Eagles were disinvited last year after many players indicated they wouldn’t attend.

Super Bowl LIII kicks off at 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday. Trump will sit down later this week with “Face the Nation” anchor Margaret Brennan, and the interview will be broadcast on Sunday.
