Presidential Election Betting Odds
Even as betting is becoming a major mainstream attraction in the United States, one of the most popular forms of wagering is still absent from state-licensed sportsbooks: presidential election betting. Fortunately, all the top offshore betting sites feature US presidential election betting odds, so you can get in on the action easily, safely, and legally. Offshore sports betting operators have robust political sections, allowing American bettors to wager real money on all the elections of national and international import.
When you join an offshore betting site to wager on politics, you’ll have lots of options at your disposal to do exactly that. And though these sites all offer action on a host of elections, nothing comes close to the handle generated by the presidential race. The US presidency is the most powerful political position in the world, and everyone has an opinion on who should win, and why. At betting sites that host political odds, you can back your opinion up with cold, hard cash. Remember, even though you aren’t able to bet on presidential election odds at your local book or betting site, you can wager on them at all top-tier offshore sportsbooks. All you need is a computer or mobile device and an Internet connection, and you can win real money betting on the next US president!
How To Bet On The 2020 Presidential Election
When it comes to the 2020 presidential election, who to bet on is a complex question. But how to bet on them is not! In order to wager on the candidate you think will win the US presidency – as well as the candidates you believe will win the Democratic and Republican primaries – you simply need an account at an offshore betting site. Signing up for any of the major operators is free and fast, and the process is the same as signing up for any other common online service. After you put in your credentials, all that’s left to do is make a deposit and place your bets!
The only real thing to remember about this process is that presidential bets – and all political wagers in general – always “have action.” These are futures bets, meaning that once you place your wager, your bet is locked in no matter what. For example, if the candidate you bet on to be the next president drops out of the race long before the primaries even conclude, you will lose the bet. In other words, there are no refunds when betting on politics. As with voting itself, carpe diem and caveat emptor!
Where To Bet On The 2020 Presidential Election
If you’re looking for where to wager on the next presidential election (and its associated primaries), you have several excellent choices. First things first, of course: You need to stop looking for local solutions, as there aren’t any legal ones in the US. And given the risks you run betting on the black market, it’s best to avoid that, too. Instead, you can safely and legally bet on the presidential election by using one of several offshore sports betting sites. Sites like Bovada, SportsBetting, BetOnline, 5Dimes, MyBookie, BetDSI, and BookMaker all have dedicated political sections and accept members from most US states. (In fact, of all the major books, only Bovada has state-based restrictions, meaning that residents of Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, and Nevada cannot currently sign up.)
Current 2020 Presidential Election Odds
Right now, most betting sites have Donald Trump, the incumbent and presumptive 2020 Republican presidential nominee, atop the odds boards as the most likely person to win the general election next year. Behind him, of course, are the biggest names on the Democrat side, including former vice president Joe Biden, Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, and California senator Kamala Harris. At BetOnline, the odds are as follows:
Democratic Presidential Candidate Odds
Outside of the main presidential race, the betting boards are primarily filled up with Democratic presidential candidate odds. The 2020 Democrat primary election is shaping up to be one of the most contentious in history, with over two dozen candidates vying for a place on the ballot. Given that the incumbent is a Republican during this cycle, it makes sense that there would be a packed Democrat field right now. Depending on who you pick, with many months to go before the primary election (not to mention the general election), some of the candidate payouts are staggering!

Republican Presidential Candidate Odds
For 2020, there are really no tight races. Donald Trump is the incumbent, and among the party, he appears to be one of the most locked-in candidates ever. While he could be strongly challenged in the general election in November 2020, Trump has no serious opponents on the Republican side. However, despite that, several offshore books are taking wagers on potential (unannounced) challengers that could pop up in the Republican primaries.

Third-Party Presidential Candidate Odds
Currently, there are no third-party presidential candidate odds on any of the major offshore betting boards. Typically, third-party candidates will be announced after the Democratic and Republican primary fields have narrowed considerably, oftentimes with rejected major party candidates opting to run under the umbrella of various third parties. As of the last presidential election, the most significant third parties in American politics are (in order): the Libertarian Party, the Green Party, the Constitution Party, the Party for Socialism and Liberation, and the Reform Party.
