Odds To Win South Carolina Primary?

The betting odds for Biden indicate he is a universal favorite to win South Carolina ahead of tonight’s debate in the Palmetto State.

According to Bovada Sportsbook, Biden is listed at -165 odds, meaning a $1.65 bet could win $1 if the former Vice President comes out on top in the fourth early primary state. At those odds, Biden has an approximately 62.26% implied probability of winning South Carolina.

However, Sanders’ chances aren’t far behind after he got the most votes in three consecutive states and received more than double the support of any other candidate during the Nevada caucuses this past Saturday.

With +125 odds, meaning a $1 wager could win $1.25 if Sanders comes takes first, the Bovada oddsmakers predict the Vermont senator has a roughly 44.44% chance to win the South Carolina primary.

Below are the current South Carolina primary odds for all of the candidates on the debate stage.

Note: Bloomberg’s odds are not present for Saturday’s election because he is not on the South Carolina ballot after choosing to skip the first four states to focus on ad spending for Super Tuesday.
