2020 Presidential Election Betting Breakdown
On Tuesday, the American voting public will pick the next President of the United States. Will Joe Biden make Donald Trump the first one-term President since George H.W. Bush? Will Trump hold off the surging Biden? Everything will be answered in just a few days.
If Biden is going to win, he's going to have to hold onto the states Hillary Clinton won in 2016 while also taking some key states from Trump that he was able to get that year.
One of the states Biden will need to hold onto is New Jersey, and he most likely will. When was the last time the state of New Jersey voted for a Republican Presidential nominee? 1988, as they picked George H.W. Bush over Michael Dukakis.
Who Will Win New Jersey in the 2020 Presidential Election?
As of Sunday, UK oddsmakers have tabbed New Jersey as Biden’s biggest slam dunk. At -6600, New Jersey has the shortest odds of a Biden victory out of any of the 50 states.
Those -6600 odds imply a massive 98.5% chance the Garden State goes to Joe Biden. Biden isn’t just another Democratic candidate in NJ. He was born in nearby Scranton, PA and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, was born Hammonton, NJ before growing up in Philadelphia.
On the other end of the spectrum is President Donald Trump’s New Jersey odds. As of Sunday, Trump is +1400 to pull off the upset, the same odds as some sportsbooks are giving the New Orleans Saints of winning the Super Bowl this season. Those odds are indicative of just a 6.7% chance Trump wins NJ.
