With the 2020 Election taking place on November 3rd, 2020, DraftKings Sportsbook has an election contest where users can predict who they believe will will certain states and which candidate will win the 2020 Election. The contest requires just a few short steps to enter, and answering a series of 12 questions about the 2020 election. It is available to all users, and DraftKings has reported over 350,000 entries have already been submitted as of October 30th. Here is what the results (so far) show.


DraftKings Election Pool predicts Trump to win Election

This may not have been what you expected, as it shows DK Sportsbook users in 49 of 50 states believe that Donald Trump will win the 2020 Election. Keep in mind, with everyone able to sign up for this contest these are not all “active” DraftKings Sportsbook users, but those registered in each state. This does not reflect an official prediction or who DraftKings believes will win the Election, but it is quite an interesting poll. 350,000 users is quite a lot of people, but it is from a very focused demographic. What is interesting is just how many users in all but one state believe that Donald Trump will win the 2020 Election. The lone state that has users that predict Joe Biden will win? Colorado.


Colorado contestants predict Biden will win 2020 Election

What sticks out the most in the contest results so far is Colorado. Users of DraftKings Sportsbook in Colorado believe that Joe Biden will win the 2020 Election. While not surprising, it is surprising based on polls and odds that Colorado is the only state that has users predicting a Joe Biden win. Of course, this demographic does not represent the entire voting body but it does show that a lot of people that like to wager believe that Donald Trump still has a chance, and could win the 2020 Election. Keep in mind, the contest at DraftKings Sportsbook is FREE to enter for $100,000 in prizes…so some may have chosen Trump to win as a contrarian approach. That of course has not proven to be contrarian as of the 10/30 results. Keep an eye on DraftKings’ feed, as they may report an update closer to the election results.


2020 Election Odds: Biden is the Favorite leading into Election Day

While legally wagering on the 2020 Election is not available in the USA, there are odds posted overseas at legal sportsbooks in Europe and other places. Those odds we have tracked and followed since March, as you can see in the image above. As of the day before the Election, the odds were:

  • Joe Biden (-188)
  • Donald Trump (+150)

This is why the report from DraftKings was interesting, as it showed the opposite of what the odds have shown over the last few months and now.
