- There are 14 states that will vote for a Democratic nominee on Tuesday.
- Senator Bernie Sanders is favored to win a majority of the states.
- With two drop-outs, Joe Biden could potentially gain momentum on Super Tuesday.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Super Tuesday happens this week and 14 states will get to vote who they think should be the Democratic nominee.
The election cycle is now in full swing. Super Tuesday is the date that candidates need to stand out if they want to become the Democratic nominee. A large number of delegates are up for grabs on Tuesday and it is the perfect time for political betters to wager on election odds.
Here are the states voting on Super Tuesday:
- North Carolina
Who Are Bettors Going For?
What matters most is not the greatest number of states won, it is the number of delegates won. For example, California has 415 delegates up for grabs while Vermont has 16. When going state by state, voters and political bettors are going for Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Sen. Bernie Sanders is further ahead than anybody in terms of the current number of delegates. Although South Carolina went to Joe Biden, he is still behind Sen. Sanders. Not only that, Biden is behind Sanders in critical states.
Odds boards are favoring Sanders to win California and Texas. Those states have the highest number of delegates and are critical to winning the Democratic nomination. While Biden is likely to win states such as Tennessee and Oklahoma, these states will not yield as many delegates.
For the sake of betting, however, it is on a state by state basis. Bettors should look at who will win each state rather than who will be the overall winner for Super Tuesday.
The Bloomberg Factor
For the first time, Michael Bloomberg will be on the ballot for Super Tuesday states. He has spent millions in states like Colorado to garner support in these Super Tuesday states. He is aiming to win Super Tuesday and use that momentum to make him the Democratic candidate.
However, odds boards and polling data shows that Bloomberg is not doing all that well. Bettors do not believe that Bloomberg will win any state and neither does polling data. Betting on Bloomberg could be considered to be a risky wager at this point.
Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders could receive a boost in odds boards as Pete Buttigieg and Tom Steyer dropped out after South Carolina. Amy Klobuchar is predicted to win her home state of Minnesota. Elizabeth Warren is falling behind, even in her home state of Massachusetts.
The safest bets at this point in time are either between Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Bettors should consider voter demographics before making their bets. Super Tuesday happens on March 3, 2020.
