Bernie Sanders is the favorite to win New Hampshire.

  • New Hampshire Democratic voters will get the chance to vote for their candidate on Tuesday.
  • Senator Bernie Sanders has the best odds of winning New Hampshire.
  • Mayor Pete Buttigieg odds of winning New Hampshire have gotten shorter since the Iowa Caucus.

CONCORD, N.H. – The New Hampshire primaries take place on Tuesday and Senator Bernie Sanders odds to win New Hampshire are at an all-time high.

After the messy Iowa caucuses, Democratic candidates are looking towards the New England area for a cleaner process. Online sportsbooks are giving Sen. Sanders the best election odds to winning the Granite State over for a number of different factors.

Sanders Is The Strong Favorite

Many polls are showing that Sen. Sanders is the candidate that will win in New Hampshire. But it is not just polling data that shows Sen. Sanders will likely win.

New Hampshire Democratic Primary Winner
2/11/20 – 7:00 P

  • Bernie Sanders -600
  • Pete Buttigieg +400
  • Amy Klobuchar +4000
  • Elizabeth Warren +4000
  • Joe Biden +4000
  • Andrew Yang +7500

Bettors on online sportsbooks are also giving Sen. Sanders an edge. Sen. Sanders currently has -600 betting odds of winning New Hampshire. This is likely due to the fact that in 2016, Sen. Sanders won New Hampshire over Hillary Clinton. Vermont, where Sanders is from, is also very close to where this voting will take place.

Mayor Pete Buttigieg also has a shot in winning New Hampshire. During the Iowa Caucuses, Buttigieg won one more delegate than Sanders did. Thanks to that, Buttigieg has more action on him and is considered a front runner now. Buttigieg has +400 betting odds to win the New Hampshire primaries.

Betting On The Elections

During the Democratic primaries, sports bettors can wager on who will win each state. The way sportsbooks determine the winner is the number of delegates each candidate walks away with.

That means although Sanders won the popular vote in Iowa, people who wagered on Buttigieg got paid out due to him winning more delegates.

That is not the only thing to note. Although legal sports betting is more widely available, state-based sportsbooks cannot take action on election odds. The New Hampshire primary odds can only be found on online sportsbooks. DraftKings, though the popular choice in the Granite State, does not have these odds.

Either way, people are starting to cast their votes for their Democratic candidate in New Hampshire. The polls close at 7 p.m. EST and that is when results will start coming in.
