Odds on Trump, Hillary Presidency Go Up

This story was published more than 8 years ago.

After a string of convincing victories, online oddsmakers are boosting the odds of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton becoming the next President of the United States.

After handily winning Florida, Illinois, and a series of other battleground states, both Trump and Clinton appear to be on their way to winning their respective party's nominations. Online sportsbook Bovada has Trump at -400 to win the Republican nomination, while Clinton is a near lock at -2500 to win the Democratic nomination. When it comes to the respective rivals of each party, both Ted Cruz and John Kasich stand at +600 to win the Republican nomination, while Democrat Bernie Sanders is +1000 to get the democratic nod.

In terms of the General Election, Hillary is the favorite to win with a -225 edge to Trump's +200. Bernie Sanders is rated the third most likely to win at +1600, while John Kasich is fourth at +1800 and Ted Cruz is last at +2000.

While Hillary Clinton is a near lock for the Democratic nomination, Trump's odds are a little murkier, given the two opponents he is still facing and the possibility that he may not reach the number of required delegates before the party's convention, which starts July 18th in Cleveland, Ohio. If Trump fails to reach the number of delegates he needs, the party will hold a vote, with delegates deciding on the party's nominee, which could be anyone from Trump, Cruz, and Kasich to House Speaker Paul Ryan or failed 2012 candidate Mitt Romney.

Casino Listings will post additional stories as the election grows closer.

I don't know, the last thing I've heard is that Donald Trump has resigned from his presidential candidature and don't know if that's true but if yes I guess many punter who have placed a bets on him will loose their money in a bad way.

No, I'm pretty sure he's in it to win it and he hasn't dropped out. Sadly.

The difference between Trump's supporters and others is that they really VOTE...I don't see other reasons how Trump gets all those negative publicity and still wins!
