What Are Donald Trump’s Betting Odds To Win The 2020 Presidential Election?
The popular online sportsbook Bovada has had a few select political betting props on the board all year long. They mostly deal with the 2020 presidential election. Although you can occasionally find a few betting options for world politics.
The actual odds tend to follow the ongoing saga of Donald Trump as the likely incumbent in the next election. As president, you would think he would have a built-in edge as the favorite. At one point early in the year, that was the case. As he continues to move from one controversy to the next, that edge has all but disappeared.
What Are Donald Trump’s Odds To Win The 2020 Presidential Election?
Early this month the odds were set at -115 for both the Democratic and Republican party winning. This pertains to their chances to win the 2020 election. The odds have shifted back in favor of the Democrats at -125. The betting odds the Republicans maintain control of the White House are now -105.
Following the current round of Democratic debates, Elizabeth Warren was able to improve her odds as the favorite to +150. Before those debates, her odds to win the party’s nomination were +200 as the favorite. She has been on a steady climb to the top over the past few months.
Former Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden’s current odds to win the party’s nomination are +275. These odds have been trending the other way. Before those recent debates, the former vice president was a +250 second-favorite. At the end of August, those odds stood at +240.
Bovada is starting to see this prop as a two-way race to the Democratic nomination. Bernie Sanders’ odds to win are now +650 followed by Andrew Yang at +1000. Both Kamala Harris and Pete Buttigieg are next on the list at +1100. None of these candidates have been able to make a significant move up the board in recent months. Robby Wells is last on the list as the biggest longshot at +20000.
The betting prop to actually win the 2020 presidential election still has Trump as a slight +110 favorite. However, his gap against Warren as the Democratic frontrunner continues to shrink. In early September, she was a +450 second-favorite to win. The current odds on the board to win are down to +375. At this rate of movement, she could technically surpass Trump as a favorite by the end of the year.
The other Democratic hopefuls are sliding in the wrong direction on Bovada’s updated prop bet board. Biden was a +500 third-favorite to win earlier this month. Post debates, his odds now stand at +550. Sanders slipped from +900 to +1100, but he is still fourth on the list. Next is Yang at +1500 followed by Harris and Buttigieg at +2500.
