WASHINGTON D.C. — The 2020 US Election will be one of the most pivotal elections in modern US History as President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden headline a loaded ballot.
The 2020 US Presidential Election has been the biggest draw to follow and betting on American Politics. However, the US Senate races also provide a great way to cash in on the political process. In the states of South Carolina, North Carolina, Iowa, and Georgia there are crucial races that could reshape Congress going into 2021.
Online sportsbooks such as Bovada have placed odds on these races and the odds couldn’t be tighter for these four states.
South Carolina Senate Race
- (R) Lindsey Graham -350
- (D) Jaime Harrison +245
Winner: Lindsey Graham (-350). Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison has given Lindsey Graham a much tighter Senate election than he expected as going into the final stretch before Election Day. Harrison had taken a slight lead over Graham in some polls early on, but the latest polls signify Graham winning. South Carolina has not elected a Democratic Senator since 2002 and the voting history of the state gives the edge to Graham.
Georgia Senate Race
- (R) David Perdue -145
- (D) Jon Ossoff +110
Winner: Jon Ossoff (+110). The Senate race Between David Perdue and Jon Ossoff will be one of the most tightly contested congressional races. Georgia has not elected a Democratic Senator since 2000 and Ossoff does have a chance to pull off the upset despite Georgia’s history of voting Republican. In recent elections, Democrats have closed the gap between them and Republicans in Georgia and this could be the race where they finally get over the hump. Take the +110 odds on Ossoff to win as the results of the Senate election will be a lot closer than the odds reflect.
North Carolina Senate Race
- (D) Cal Cunningham -165
- (R) Thom Tillis +125
Winner: (D) Cal Cunningham (-165). The North Carolina Senate race between (D) Cal Cunningham and (R) Thom Tillis will be one of the elections that is too close to call on Election Night. Both Tillis and Cunningham have been jockeying for the Senate seat in the polls but one clear winner has yet to arise. Take the -165 odds on Cunningham being the first Democratic Senator elected in North Carolina since 2014. Legal sports betting sites may shift his odds in the next 24 hours, making it even more of an enticing bet.
Iowa Senate Election
- (R) Joni Ernst -200
- (D) Theresa Greenfield +150
Winner: Joni Ernst (-200). Ernst is favored to win a Senate seat in Iowa over (D) Theresa Greenfield. Iowa has not elected a Democratic Senator since 2012. That eight-year drought for Democrats could change but it’s unlikely that it happens in this election. Take the -200 odds on Joni Ernst as she’s taken a lead in the polls over Greenfield just days before the election. This will be another tight race but the best bet here lies with Ernst especially considering the Senate voting history in Iowa.
