HOW DOES THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WORK?

The United States uses Electoral Colleges to determine the president and vice president. The candidate with 270 Electoral College votes takes the presidency. Each state is assigned a set of votes based on the number of representatives in the House of Representatives, with two more added for the senators each state has in Congress. The candidate with the most votes for a particular state will take all of the Electoral College votes (Nebraska and Maine dole out their Electoral votes based on the proportion of the popular vote each candidate gets) to reach that magic number of 270. But just because you win the presidency doesn’t mean you won the nation’s popular vote.

There have been five instances when the winner hasn’t had more votes by the people. While three of those instances happened during the 1800s (John Quincy Adams, Rutherford B. Hayes, and Benjamin Harrison), we’ve seen it happen in two of the last four presidential elections: George W. Bush in 2000 and Donald Trump in 2016 won against Al Gore and Hillary Clinton, respectively.

And before you ask, yes, global bookmakers offer bets on different party combinations for the Electoral College and popular vote.=

HOW TO BET ON POLITICAL ODDS

Betting on political elections is no different than a typical sports wager. You have your typical money-line or fractional bet. Totals players can get their fix with how many Electoral College votes each candidate wins in the election.

Again, Americans are not legally allowed to bet on politics in the US. That said, one well-known sportsbook, DraftKings, has found a fun way to offer action while following regulations: Pools.

GLOBAL SPORTSBOOKS OFFERING US ELECTION ODDS

Legal sportsbooks in the United States do not offer odds on the 2024 United States Presidential Election, or any other political election. This is because betting on politics in the US is prohibited by law. That said, some familiar US sportsbooks with a presence in other countries offer election betting markets overseas.

US PRESIDENTIAL ODDS FAQ

CAN I BET ON THE US PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION? WHERE?

At this time, it is illegal to bet on politics in the United States. So, short answer, no. However, DraftKings is running free-to-play pools to guess the outcomes of the 2024 US election prop bets. Plus, the DraftKings Presidential Election Pool has a $100,000 prize pool!

HOW DO I BET ON THE 2024 ELECTION?

Again, you can't, not legally anyway. Some offshore bookmakers offer lines, but we absolutely do not recommend that. There's much more risk involved, and you can't be certain you'll receive any winnings or be able to withdraw your money. If you want to get in on the action, try out DraftKings Election Pool!

WHAT KIND OF ELECTION PROP BETS ARE THERE?

The most straightforward political prop bet for the US election is simply 'Who will win the 2020 US presidential election?'. Odds are then presented; currently, Trump is at +175 and Biden is at -200. This makes Trump the underdog, and for you, that means if you bet $100 on Trump winning, and he does, you win $175 (on top of your initial stake of $100). Other prop bets include how states will vote, how long it will take for final results to reveal and many more!
