Electoral College Betting Odds

After he won 306 of the 538 Electoral College votes in 2016, oddsmakers have put out props for whether President Donald Trump will repeat that feat in 2020. For reference, the Electoral College consists of 538 electors and a majority of 270 electoral votes is needed to be elected president.

Sportsbooks have also posted betting odds for how the Republicans and Democrats will fare in terms of Electoral College votes in each state, with EVERY state currently listed. You can also bet on the Electoral College margin of victory and an OVER/UNDER for how many Electoral College votes Joe Biden will get.

Some states have been decided as polls close but sportsbooks offer in-play bets for each state as results come in.

Here are the full prop odds for Electoral College results for the 2020 presidential election:

Popular Vote

One of the more controversial topics following the 2016 election was that Donald Trump didn’t win the popular vote but was still elected president of the United States. While the U.S. democratic process is a debate for another day, Trump is expected to fall short in that category again in 2020, according to oddsmakers.

The Democrats are -700 to win the popular vote while the Republicans come back at +500 at various sportsbooks. For reference, in 2016, Trump’s vote count was 62.9 million while Hillary Clinton finished with 65.8 million votes, according to election results posted by the U.S. government.

What is a Prop Bet?

A prop is a bet on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain outcomes that may not necessarily determine the outcome of the presidential election. You can make a bet like this as soon as the odds are announced. Oddsmakers will move the lines as news comes out about a candidate’s intentions to run or not run with the Democratic nominee. If you see odds you like, place your bet immediately, otherwise the action could move so much that you’ll barely make a profit or maybe even not make one at all.
