As we know, 2020 election odds have endured shakeup after shakeup in the months since. Senator Elizabeth Warren, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Bernie Sanders were all once the favorite to become the Democratic presidential nominee. Now, they’ve all endorsed Democratic presidential favorite Joe Biden.

While the contestants in the Democratic field jockeyed for position, President Trump remained the favorite to win the 2020 election with odds soaring near -200 (aka 1-to-2) shortly after his impeachment trial ended.

That was then. The new normal, from everyday life to presidential betting odds, is quite different. As the world continues to grapple with a coronavirus pandemic, Biden and Trump are the favorites to win the 2020 election.

Odds as of November 6

Latest U.S. Election Betting News

The morning after the U.S. election, those Americans who managed a few hours of sleep awoke to a divided nation and, more than likely, a split government. While President Donald Trump’s odds to win re-election soared in the late evening of November 3, former vice-president Joe Biden had snatched back the label of overwhelming favorite by breakfast November 4.

The Road to 270 Electoral Votes

With all eyes on Pennsylvania’s 20 pending electoral votes, Arizona’s 11 and Nevada’s six, voting momentum has carried Biden’s odds to become the 46th president of the United States back to -1100 at online sportsbook Bovada, which carries an implied winning probability of 91.67 percent.

President Trump’s odds, which reached -775 or better at several betting outlets on Tuesday night, have snapped back to +575 at Bovada, a 14.81 percent implied probability to retain the presidency.

Those who backed either candidate will no doubt need to wait until at least late Thursday to learn of a winner, but most pundits believe this presidential election will be dragged out the rest of the week, if not longer. It’s a fitting conclusion to what has been a contentious campaign and the most stressful year of the past century. Whether you’re holding a Trump or Biden bet slip, one thing is for certain, don’t toss it in the trash. The year 2020 is full of the unexpected.

Why Betting Odds Matter with U.S. Elections

If United States voters learned one thing following the 2016 election, it’s that presidential polling should be taken with a boulder-sized grain of salt.

The voluminous amount of polling data shared by the media all but guaranteed Hillary Clinton would win the presidency and she didn’t. Donald Trump flipped the script with the biggest political upset in history and if you were one of the select few who saw value on oddsboards in the days leading up to the November 2016 election, a significant profit could be made.

Trump’s odds to win the 2016 election were near 5-to-1 the day before the election. Wagering on political outcomes seems a lot more enjoyable, and financially wise, than arguing with strangers on social media.

What Do the Numbers Mean?

For those new to 2020 election odds, the numbers can be a little confusing. Odds Shark’s odds calculator is a great tool to help translate who will win the 2020 election into implied probabilities. For example, at +575, Donald Trump’s implied probability to win the 2020 election would be 14.81 percent and Joe Biden at -1100 odds would be 91.67 percent. Trump had -180 odds, or 64.29 percent implied probability, to win the election during the last week of February.

These fluctuating market prices are set by both online oddsmakers and the betting public. It’s obvious that Trump’s early dismissive public comments about coronavirus caused bettors to start wagering on Biden. With money coming in on the former vice-president, political betting sites adjusted Trump’s odds. Cause and effect.

Over the past few years, bookmakers’ election odds prices have been referenced by industry experts and pollsters like FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver as an additional layer of data to help with their projection models.

How to Bet on the Presidential Election

If you believe President Trump, Joe Biden or a dark-horse candidate will win the presidency, a 2020 election prop bet is a great way to showcase your political expertise.

An example of a political prop bet is as simple as “Who will win the 2020 election: Donald Trump or Joe Biden?” Other examples are “Who will Biden select as his vice-presidential candidate?” and “Which party will win the 2020 election popular vote: Democratic or Republican?”

How to Read Election Prop Odds

After you decide which political prop to wager on, first-time bettors need to understand what the odds mean.

Here’s a specific example:

Who will win the 2020 presidential election?

Donald Trump-105
Joe Biden+120
Bernie Sanders+400

The -105 means that if you wagered $105 on Trump and he won the 2020 election, you’d win $100 and recoup your original $105 bet. With Joe Biden at +120, that means if you wager $100 on Biden and he wins the election, you win $120 and recoup your original $100 bet. Bernie Sanders at +400 is another way of writing 4-to-1, so a $100 winning bet would collect $400.

In short, the plus (+) symbol means that specific bet/option is considered an underdog, while the minus (-) symbol before a number indicates that option is a favorite to win the bet. As always, if you’d also like to review the implied probability of any odds, be sure to check out our odds calculator.

2020 Election Handicapping

Odds Shark has also compiled a comprehensive list of 2020 Presidential Election Betting Props for bettors if they want to look at more options than just “Who will win the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election.”

While picking the winner of the 2020 United States election is the most popular prop bet to wager on, dozens of exotic props, specials and futures pop up on oddsboards in the months leading up to November 3. Some prop bet specials examples include:

  • Will Donald Trump complete his first term?
  • Will Democrats have a brokered convention?
  • Who will win the 2020 Electoral College vote?
  • Who will win the popular vote?
  • Which party will win the popular vote?
  • Which party will gain control of the House of Representatives?
