Popular Vote

One of the more controversial topics following the 2016 election was that Donald Trump didn’t win the popular vote but was still elected president of the United States. While the U.S. democratic process is a debate for another day, Trump is expected to fall short in that category again in 2020 according to oddsmakers.

At Bovada, they’ve listed the Democrats at -625 to win the popular vote while the Republicans come back at +385.  For reference, in 2016, Trump’s vote count was 62.9 million while Hillary Clinton finished with 65.8 million votes according to election results posted by the U.S. government.

Understanding 2020 U.S. Presidential Election Prop Odds

When you check out your sportsbook of choice for political betting props like who will be the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, you’ll see prop odds that look something like this:

Kamala Harris +210

Amy Klobuchar +300

Gretchen Whitmer +600

Catherine Cortez Masto +900

To bet on these odds, you would be making a prop bet – more on that in a bit. In this case, there is no clear favorite like there would be on a moneyline or spread bet. When you don’t see odds with a minus sign (-) beside them, then the option with the lowest odds is the fave. The rest are considered underdogs.

If you think Kamala Harris will be selected as the Democratic VP, and you bet $100 on her, you’d get a payout of $310 – you get your $100 back along with your winnings of $210. Our Odds Calculator will show you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount bet.

What is a Prop Bet?

A prop is a bet on the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain outcomes that may not necessarily determine the outcome of the presidential election. You can make a bet like this as soon as the odds are announced. Oddsmakers will move the lines as news comes out about a candidate’s intentions to run or not run with the Democratic nominee. If you see odds you like, place your bet immediately, otherwise the action could move so much that you’ll barely make a profit or maybe even not make one at all.
