2020 US Elections Latest Betting Odds and Tips

We’re now counting down the days until 2020 US Presidential Election, with Joe Biden and Donald Trump set to battle it out at the polls all over the United States of America and the bookies are reporting a brisk business when it comes to the number of bets being placed.

Political betting odds tend to be fairly volatile and this has certainly been the case when it comes to the US Presidential Election betting prices, with the outcome of the race for the White House likely to come down to few key states as it normally does.

Joe Biden Favourite to Become 46th POTUS

Many people all over the world will be delighted that Joe Biden is the betting favourite to replace Donald Trump as the President of the United States of America, with the 77-year-old generally trading at around 4/7 to claim victory when the whole of America goes to the polls on 3 November 2020.

Biden has fought an admirable campaign and has bags of experience after previously being the Vice President behind Barack Obama, with the Democrat candidate hoping that the current polls are correct which has him a number of points ahead of the current POTUS.

The COVID-19 pandemic clearly adds an extra element of uncertainty to the US Presidential Elections, with many voters struggling to cast their votes due to lockdown and fears over health and safety.

Can Trump Upset the Odds and Continue as POTUS?

Donald Trump was the rank outsider to beat Hillary Clinton four years ago before getting over the line and the 45th President of the United States of America has been getting backed in recent days, with the Republican candidate now trading at 11/8 after trading at 2/1 a week previously.

Trump has recently recovered from COVID-19 in order to campaign for this election and will hope that enough Americans want to continue with the status quo, although he will have to hope that the latest polls aren’t completely accurate for how people are going to vote.

Biden Massive Favourite to Win Popular Vote

We’ve previously seen candidates win the American presidency despite failing to win the popular vote and this could certainly be the case in 2020 considering that it would be a major surprise if Biden didn’t claim the biggest number of ballot slips.

The Democrat is trading at 1/6 to record the most American voters, although Trump won’t be overly concerned that he’s 7/2 providing that those key American states are won in order for him to serve as POTUS for another four years.

There are 538 members of the Electoral College and that means that either candidate will need 270 electoral votes in order to triumph, with Arizona, Florida and Georgia among the states where the battle lines have been drawn up.

US Presidential Election 2020 betting odds

A few weeks ago, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that Donald Trump would serve a second term as President of the United States of America, with the Republican candidate well ahead in the polls and it looked as though we would be facing the prospect of him being in the White House until 2024.

That might still be the case when the Presidential Election eventually takes place, although Trump is now 4/5 with most bookmakers to win at the polls following a difficult few weeks for the POTUS which has seen him have to publicly defend his strategy following the outbreak of COVID-19.

He has referred to this pandemic as “The Chinese Disease” although it could end up affecting America in the harshest possible way, with the country seemingly ill-equipped to contend with the spread of a virus in a country where many poor people struggle to receive healthcare for other medical problems.

Trump continues to maintain that the “economy will be great again” and that people can start returning to work soon, with May pencilled as the month for this to happen, although it’s clear that he’s lost votes as a result of this deadly pandemic and it’s likely that the Democrats can now close the gap.

Joe Biden looks set to be the contender for the other major part of the United States and is now trading at 13/10 to become the 46th president of this powerful country, with the 77-year-old having seen off the challenge of Bernie Sanders to put himself in with a shout.

Perhaps his association with Barack Obama will help Biden get close to the White House, with the latter having previously been Vice President of the country and he faces that difficult dilemma of trying to overhaul an opponent who has a strong control of the right-wing media in America.

Nevertheless, the tide of popular opinion is clearly with Biden who will be preparing a way of overcoming Trump when the two meet in the forthcoming televised debates that will be aired to millions of American people.

Campaigning has largely been put on hold while the USA tries to keep a lid on this COVID-19 pandemic which has already claimed the lives of thousands of people in the country, although you can bet that Trump will be all too ready to claim that his actions helped get the US back on its feet and that he’s the man to continue to lead America in the next few years.

The race for the White House in the upcoming 2016 presidential elections is perhaps the most heated for a generation, and perhaps also the most crucial. In the Democrats’ corner we have Hillary Clinton, former First Lady, former Secretary of State, and someone who clearly knows what she’s doing. For the Republicans, we have a loud-mouthed, misogynistic, seemingly racist buffoon who clearly doesn’t know what he’s doing. That there is even a shadow of doubt about who will win this contest says a lot about the American public!

Of course, despite many, many people around the world feeling rather nauseous about the prospect of President Trump taking control of this great superpower’s substantial nuclear arsenal, it is for the American public to decide what happens next.

If the odds are to be believed, Hillary should get the victory that so many non-Americans are hoping (and praying) for. But politics have been somewhat strange of late, and it would be dangerous to write Trump off just yet, despite his rather amateurish, arrogant and downright stupid performance in the first of the TV debates against his rival recently. The odds have fluctuated in recent weeks, but keep abreast of them with ease with our odds comparison table, ensuring you get the best price whoever you back.

When Clinton tried to suggest Trump wouldn’t publish his tax returns (something that almost all presidential candidates have done in the past) because he was hiding something, the Republican looked unmoved. But when she suggested that what he was hiding was the fact that he, “doesn't want the American people to know he has paid nothing in federal income taxes," Trump simply responded, "That makes me smart." Amongst the very many less-than-smart things the bouffant-haired businessman has uttered during his bid for the White House, this has to be up there with one of the least likely to strike a chord with the wider electorate.

As things stand, after the first TV debate, Clinton is the odds-on favourite (as she has been from the start of the contest), priced at best betting odds of 4/9 with Sportingbet. Trump, meanwhile, has drifted slightly to 2/1 with 10bet and others, and if he keeps performing with the arrogance and seeming disregard for reason as he has been, we can only see those odds drifting further.

Of course, building a massive wall to keep out the Mexicans, taking control of Iraq’s oil fields and slashing corporation tax by 20% are policies that do hold water with quite a lot of people in the USA. And as with George W. Bush’s victory over Al Gore in 2000, it is true that you can become President without actually winning the greatest number of votes as long as you carry enough states.

Realistically, though, as Clinton and Trump clash again it SHOULD become apparent to the vast majority of US voters that one candidate is smart, measured, experienced, and liable to avoid any world wars; while the other, frankly, is a chump. As such we simply have to predict that Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States of America and that Donald Trump somehow disappears from public life, taking with him his outdated views about women and immigrants.

Of course, anything can happen in politics, but short of Clinton’s health becoming a major issue in the coming weeks, our betting tip is simply to pile on the Democrat to get the victory (and to cross your fingers and toes!).

The next President of the USA won’t be decided until November 2016 but the elongated election process means we predict the race to become the 58th President of America will dominate much of the news over the next 12 months or so. The two main parties are yet to even decide who their candidates will be, although the betting odds indicate that the bookies expect Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush to get the nod. We take a closer look at the most expensive and exciting battle in global politics and offer up our US election predictions and betting tips, as well as providing you the best odds available via our live betting odds comparison.

Our brilliant odds comparison means you can always get the maximum value with the minimum effort, so be sure to check out the best odds before you place your bets.

Back to the race to the White House and, as said, the Democrats and Republicans are yet to decide on their candidates but already the betting on who will be the President is hotting up. In terms of the nomination betting, Hillary Clinton is currently priced at odds of just 4/9 with William Hill to gain her party’s nomination. There are no dead certs when it comes to betting but Clinton looks pretty darn close to being one and should be able to avoid any major scandals between now and deadline day and thus become the next Democratic Presidential candidate.

The odds for the Republican candidacy have been a little more volatile over the past few months, and whilst Jeb Bush has generally been at the top of the market, Donald Trump has been pushing him close at times whilst more recently Marco Rubio has challenged as controversy and bad press have hit Trump’s campaign. Bush is priced at 9/4, Rubio at 3/1 and Trump has now drifted to 7/1, with Carly Fiorina (10/1) and Ben Carson (14/1) not yet totally out of things.

That said, we, like most other political pundits, predict the 2016 Presidential battle will come down to Clinton and Bush, names with huge meaning and resonance on the US political landscape. The media and public would relish a battle between Hillary, wife of the hugely popular former President Bill and Jeb, second son of former President George H. W. Bush and brother of George W. Bush, who was President prior to the current incumbent Barrack Obama.

Some have argued that the US culture of freedom and democracy might not like the idea of another Clinton or Bush coming to power, given that those two families held the top job between 1989 and 2009. If either of the current challengers were to win the Presidential election, some have argued that this would give too much of an oligarchical feel to US politics and so there are those within both parties who feel an alternative candidate would be better.

That said, Clinton and Bush remain strong favourites and as long as they maintain a solid campaign and don’t make any terrible or controversial errors it’s hard to see either of them losing out.

Clinton is the clear favourite in terms of who will be the next President of America, priced at betting odds of 6/4 with William Hill, whilst Bush is priced at 5/1 with Bet365 and Joe Biden, the current Vice President, is offered at odds of 8/1 with Ladbrokes, with Bet365 pricing Rubio up at those same odds.

US politics is very much about personalities and TV appeal and Clinton has the edge here, not least because her husband was one of the most popular Presidents of recent times.

Moreover, having elected their first black President in Obama, many feel there is a feeling within the States that having a first woman President would also be desirable.

We predict that they will get their wish too, with the Democrats set to buck recent trends and hold onto the Presidency despite a change in candidate and as such Hilary Clinton is our betting tip to be the next President of the USA.
