2020 Super Tuesday Democratic Presidential Primary Betting Predictions

Voters in fourteen states, as well as the American Samoa caucuses and Democrats Abroad primary, head to the polls today for the Super Tuesday primary elections, but who’s favored to win?

The GOP nomination is a lock at this point, and President Donald Trump’s odds of becoming the 2020 Republican presidential nominee are cemented at this point due to his incumbent status, among other “i” words.

Today, all eyes are on the Super Tuesday Democratic Primary odds and which state elections will be won by either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden.

Michael Bloomberg, Elizabeth Warren, and Tulsi Gabbard are also on the ballot but currently do not have a “reasonable chance” to win any states on Super Tuesday.

To assist with the Super Tuesday betting odds predictions, here’s the final forecast from FiveThirtyEight, which predicts a candidates’ chance to win a given state based on the average polling.

Super Tuesday Betting Predictions

Political Futures – Mar. 3, 2020 at Bovada

Alabama Democratic Primary Winner: Joe Biden

  • Joe Biden -5000
  • Bernie Sanders +2000
  • Michael Bloomberg +5000
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000

Prediction: The AL primary betting odds indicate there’s an 89% chance of Biden winning the redist state on Super Tuesday. 538 gives Biden a 92% chance, but it’s worth noting that polling has been limited in Alabama.

Arkansas Democratic Primary Winner: Joe Biden

  • Joe Biden -750
  • Michael Bloomberg +600
  • Bernie Sanders +1500
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000

Prediction: Arkansas is the only state where Bloomberg (who’s bet over $500 million spent on Super Tuesday ads) is projected to come in second, but the odds still favor Biden with an 80% chance. 538 lists the former VP with a 69% probability.

California Democratic Primary Winner: Bernie Sanders

  • Bernie Sanders -1500
  • Joe Biden +1000
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000
  • Michael Bloomberg +10000

Prediction: Sanders’ betting odds means he has an 85% chance to win the biggest delegate prize on Super Tuesday, and the Vermont senator has a 76% from the 538 odds. Also, nearly 40% have already voted early in California.

Colorado Democratic Primary Winner: Bernie Sanders

  • Bernie Sanders -3000
  • Joe Biden +1200
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000
  • Michael Bloomberg +10000

  • Joe Biden +600

North Carolina Democratic Primary Winner: Joe Biden

  • Joe Biden -1100
  • Bernie Sanders +700
  • Michael Bloomberg +5000
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000

Prediction: The big South Carolina primary win for Biden appears to have had a significant impact on the Carolinas north neighbors. The former Vice president’s betting odds give him an 83% chance to win North Carolina, and 538’s odds give him an even better opportunity with a 95% probability.

Oklahoma Democratic Primary Winner: Joe Biden

  • Joe Biden -500
  • Bernie Sanders +375
  • Michael Bloomberg +2000
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000

This will be the closest race of the day, but like most Super Tuesday states, Biden hasn’t been campaigning in Texas while Sanders has been there multiple times, including after his Nevada win. Expect the Latino vote to give Bernie the edge.

Utah Democratic Primary Winner: Bernie Sanders

  • Joe Biden +400

  • Joe Biden +10000
  • Michael Bloomberg +10000

Prediction: Both Bovada and 538’s odds give Bernie Sanders a greater than 99% chance to win his home state of Vermont on Super Tuesday. But here’s the real question: Who will Bernie vote for?

Virginia Democratic Primary Winner: Joe Biden

  • Joe Biden -4000
  • Bernie Sanders +1000
  • Elizabeth Warren +10000
  • Michael Bloomberg +10000

Prediction: Last but not least, Biden appears to have gotten a massive bump in Virginia, also known as the home base of many in the District of Columbia establishment. The betting odds list the former VP with an 89% chance to win Virginia on Super Tuesday while the 538 forecast gives Biden a 98% probability.

Super Tuesday Picks Recap

  • Bernie Sanders – 8 states (CA, CO, ME, MA, MN, TX, UT, VT)
  • Joe Biden – 6 states (AL, AK, NC, OK, TN, VA)
  • Everyone else – 0 states

While the percentage of 1,357 total delegates awarded will vary, Bernie Sanders is favored to win eight states on Super Tuesday while Joe Biden is projected to take home six primaries. The closet contest is the Texas primary election, with Bovada favoring Sanders and 538 odds predicting Biden to win.

With that in mind, the two most likely scenarios for Super Tuesday are Sanders scoring an 8-6 states victory or both Sanders and Biden finishing tied with seven states each.

Who will win the 2020 Democratic Nomination?

Bovada’s 2020 Democratic presidential nominee odds now show the former Vice President as the betting favorite (again), listing him at -140. This means a $1.40 bet would win $1, and Biden’s odds, when converted and vigorish removed, give him about a 53% chance to get the nomination.

Bernie Sanders’ odds fall back to the second spot ahead of the Super Tuesday results, coming in at +175. A $1 wager on the Vermont senator would win $1.75 if he becomes the nominee, which the oddsmakers predict has a roughly 33% chance of happening.
