Updated 2020 Presidential Election Odds
|Presidential Candidate||William Hill Odds|
|Joe Biden (D)||+350|
|Kamala Harris (D)||+350|
|Donald Trump (R)||+500|
|Ron DeSantis (R)||+1000|

Entering November, Joe Biden’s election odds had climbed to -200, they since dipped a bit. For those keeping track, that is 2:1 to win the 2020 Presidential Election. Current President Donald Trump is +163 to win the election after his odds have fallen throughout the summer and fall amidst the coronavirus pandemic and other factors. Without a doubt though, the 2020 election will be one to follow given the outcome of the 2016 election where the odds, polls, and more were incorrect after having Hillary Clinton as a heavy favorite. We have tracked the odds all year long, so be sure to check out the 2020 Election odds page for more information.
