2020 US Presidential Election Odds Update: Donald Trump's Odds Lengthen On Election Day

Donald Trump's odds came crashing down on the morning of election day, and his chances reached a high of 46.5% in the early hours. However, as the day has gone on his odds have slowly drifted out, and are now bigger than they were yesterday. 

Yesterday, we reported that Donald Trump's odds implied he had a 35% chance of winning the election, which far exceeded the 20% chance he was given by sportsbooks the day before election day in 2016. Currently, Donald Trump's election odds imply he's got a 33.3% chance of winning the vote.

OddsChecker's Head Of Marketing, Sam Eaton "Despite the bookmakers lengthening Donald Trump's odds of winning the 2020 election, online bettors have stuck with him on election day. In the last four hours, a massive 81% of the money wagered on the election has been placed on a Donald Trump victory"

"The 2020 election has already surpassed the 2016 election as the biggest betting event in history, and it continues to grow. One of our partners has now taken over $432 million on the vote."

"The market could significantly change over the next few hours as we find out more about how the states have voted."

"in 2016, Donald Trump had only accounted for 55% of total wagers in the first 16-hours of election day, and even more remarkably just 36% of the money wagered on the outcome. At 4pm (ET) on the 8th of November 2016, Donald Trump's odds implied he had a 20% chance of winning the election.Hillary Clinton's odds implied an 83.3% chance of victory at this time. Based on that alone, if you are a Trump supporter there's no great need for concern with his odds slightly lengthening today".
