Joe Biden takes charge of key Swing States

As you can see in the below compilation of odds, the Democratic Party and Joe Biden currently enjoy a stronghold over their Republican counterparts.

Donald Trump's party are currently only favourite to win in one key battleground, currently priced at 4/6 for success in Georgia.

However, the remaining swing states are all leaning in favour of Biden and company, with the strongest state looking like Minnesota (2/5).

Florida could prove crucial

In terms of toss-up states, Florida is currently looking like it could go either way. The Democrats are marginal favourites for the state at 9/10, with 1/1 being offered on a Republican victory.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "As with every US Election, the swing states are where proceedings are won and lost.

"Ominously for Donald Trump, Joe Biden is dominating the market in all but one of these crucial battlegrounds, so it'll take a significant effort from the President to keep hold of the keys to the White House."
