Steyer is a longshot like several other of the 2020 presidential candidates. His current odds are only +20000 on Bovada, which are the same odds given to Mitt Romney and Oprah Winfrey.

Despite this, Steyer is still earning large amounts of donations and polling support. Steyer has since qualified for the fourth Democratic debate in Ohio, proving that he can make waves in the race.

Tom Steyer’s Chances Of Winning Based On Prediction Markets

Since Steyer is such a fresh candidate in the race, prediction markets usually do not have any information on him.
