Odds on the 2016 US Presidential Election

By admin-alf on August 5, 2015 in Entertainment

The bookies have released their odds on the 2016 US Presidential election. It looks set to be a very interesting (and entertaining) political campaign, especially on the Republican side now that Donald Trump is in the race and ahead on the polls among Republican voters. Below is a short list of the main contenders.

The favourites

Democrat Hillary Clinton is the big favourite among all bookmakers. The top price is currently 1/1 or 2.00, and you can get this price with BetVictor and PaddyPower.

Jeb Bush is the second favourite, as most expect it will come down to a race between the Democrat Clinton and Republican Bush once again. If you fancy a bet on Jeb, then William Hill offer 7/2 (4.5).

The outsiders

Which candidate that is the third ranked favorite the bookies disagree a bit more on. Some have several with same odds, and others have Scott Walker in third place. Walker (Republican) will give you 16/1 (17.0) with Unibet.

The Democrat Bernie Sanders is quite high on the bookmakers’ lists also. If you believe he can beat Hillary to become the Democrat nominee, and then win against the Republican nominee, take odds 20/1 (21.0) provided by Ladbrokes.

Marc Rubio, a Republican, is also among the outsiders. Some bookies see him as perhaps the strongest opponent to Jeb Bush in taking the Republican nomination and offering as low as 7/1, but SkyBet is taking a stand here and offering odds 25/1!

The Donald

Donald Trump, the man the media loves to write about, is currently leading the ratings among the Republican candidates. So clearly there are many that want him to win - yet the bookmakers do not give him much chance and are ranking him below the candidates mentioned above. If you disagree with this and think he has a chance, you can get 20/1 (21.0) with Unibet.
