Biden’s Odds of Victory Shortest They’ve Been, Following Projected Wins in Michigan, Wisconsin

Following Wednesday’s announcement that Joe Biden is projected to win both Michigan and Wisconsin, a total of 26 key electoral votes, the former Vice President has seen his odds slashed all the way down to -800, implying an 88.9% chance he becomes the 46th President of the United States.

Biden came into Tuesday as the favorite. At 8 am ET on November 3, Biden’s odds sat at -152, implying a 61.9% chance he'd win the presidency. As the day went on, and states like Florida and Texas went to President Trump, Biden’s odds began to lengthen drastically.

On Tuesday night, it seemed like a bit of a longshot that Joe Biden could unseat President Donald Trump. At 11 pm ET, Trump’s -223 odds at UK sportsbooks gave him a 69% chance of winning the 2020 Presidential Election.

But, a strong showing overnight and into the early morning hours of Thursday have gotten us to where we are now. With Biden as the frontrunner with just six states left to decide a projected winner (Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Alaska and Georgia).
