2020 Presidential Election Odds: North Carolina Is The Hardest State To Call For Legal Bookmakers
With just two weeks to go until the US Presidential Election, OddsChecker have looked at the political betting data from over a dozen European oddsmakers, where such wagering is legal, regulated and thriving.
And of all 50 states, North Carolina is currently the most competitive state according to the odds.
Who will win North Carolina?
When the market opened back in March 2020, the GOP were installed as favorites with their odds of -137 carried an implied probability of 57.90%.
The Demorats, by comparison, opened as underdogs with their odds of +100 suggesting a 50% chance.
Since then, the odds have ebbed and flowed in favor of both parties, and with just 13 days to go until election day the race remains as close as ever.
At time of writing, the Democrats are narrow favorites with their odds of -114 implying a 53.19% chance.
The Republicans are hot on their (tar) heels though, with odds of +100 putting them just 3.19% behind on 50.00%.
OddsChecker spokesperson Pete Watt: “We’ve been tracking all of the ‘swing states’ for over six months and North Carolina – along with Florida – has certainly been the most exciting.”
“Both parties have enjoyed nadirs and zeniths and although there is under a fortnight left, there are certainly a few more twists and turns in the race to land the Tar Heel State and potentially decide the election.”
