- At +850 odds are getting shorter and shorter for Hillary Clinton to win the Democratic nomination, but she has not even entered the race yet.
- Bettors can now put money on the climbing odds of a repeat showdown between President Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for the 2020 Presidential Election.
WASHINGTON – Former Vice President Joe Biden is likely the Democratic Nominee by default but sportsbooks have seen a surge in the numbers for Hillary Clinton to represent the Democratic party in the 2020 Presidential Election.
Clinton has not thrown her name in the ring by way of any public announcement but that has not stopped oddsmakers from doing it for her.
If Clinton were to run this late in the game and beat Biden for the nomination, the election for the presidency would be a repeat of the 2016 election where Trump and Clinton went up against one another for the position.
Hillary Clinton’s Odds To Be Dem Nominee
Hillary Clinton is listed at on online sportsbooks for multiple political betting lines. Her odds for some betting lines are still very long but her odds to win the democratic nomination for president have shifted greatly. After this year’s Super Tuesday results, Hillary Clinton was listed at +3000 odds to win the nomination. Now, she has +850 odds.
US Presidential Election 2020 – Democratic Candidate Winner
- Joe Biden – (-650)
- Hillary Clinton – (+850)
- Andrew Cuomo – (+1400)
- Michelle Obama – (+4000)
Are The Odds Worth Taking?
It is possible that the current sexual assault allegations against Joe Biden may have affected these odds as of late.
However, even with Hillary Clinton’s odds for this betting line having been cut in half over the last two months, it would still be a longshot of a bet.
Joe Biden is still the overwhelming favorite to be named the Democratic Presidential nominee at -650 odds and even has the support of Clinton herself.
Rather than try again, Clinton gave her endorsement for Joe Biden to be the next President of the United States as on Tuesday.
“I’ve been not only a colleague of Joe Biden’s, I’ve been a friend, and I can tell you that I wish he were president right now but I can’t wait until he is — if all of us do our part to support the kind of person that we want back in the White House,” said Clinton on Tuesday during a virtual event held with Biden about the Coronavirus and its effect on women.
In response to her support, Biden said, “I really appreciate your friendship. What a, just a wonderful personal endorsement.”
Her odds of taking the Democratic nomination as she did in 2016 continue to spike. However, the likely hood of that happening this late in the game in 2020 is still very slim. It would take a massive amount of campaigning and that can’t happen because of social distancing measures caused by COVID-19.
A brokered democratic convention seems to be the only way possible for her to win this nomination and the odds for such a convention not even happening are at -900.
