2022 Midterm Election Betting Odds

2022 Midterm Election Betting Odds

2018 Midterm Elections buttonNovember 8, 2022, is the date all registered voters from around the United States will decide which candidates will be elected to public office at the congressional, state, and local levels during the 2022 Midterm Elections. There is a possibility for numerous amendments to be up for vote on individual state ballots, including multiple gambling ballot measures. Early voting will be well underway both at physical locations and by mail across the US.

Democrats were vying for control of Congress in an effort to derail Trump’s movement as POTUS in 2018 and in 2022 we may see a similar political climate if yet another Republican becomes President or Trump is re-elected. Republicans were desperately trying to maintain control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate in the 2018 Midterms. Political polls, betting odds, and commentators all had predictions on what to expect in the Midterm Election results for 2018. However, if there was anything to learn from 2016, it was to expect the unexpected, which may explain the surge of interest in political wagering Sportsbooks were offering odds on a whopping 40 betting lines for that year’s general election, covering everything from majority outcomes in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate along with individual races in both and many key races for Governor in several states as well and the same is likely for 2022.

Midterm 2018 Election Results

The Democrats did not receive the huge blue wave they expected but the party was successful in taking the house. This significant change means the Democrats will have a seat at the table where current POTUS cannot pass laws without the Democratic vote which may also have implications of re-opening investigation scandals against the President and his administration. However, this election had several implications across the US and several key races which we list were being watched closely.

Key Races:

Kentucky 6th Congressional District – Incumbent Andy Barr (R) won against challenger Amy McGrath (D)

Georgia Governorship Brain Kemp (R) won against challenger Stacey Abrams (D)

Texas Senate – Incumbent Ted Cruz (R) won against challenger Beto O’Rouke (D)

North Dakota SenateKevin Cramer (R) won against incumbent Keidi Heitkamp (D)

Missouri SenateJohn Hawley (R) won against incumbent Claire McCaskill (D)

Indiana SenateMike Braun (R) won against incumbent Joe Donnelly (D)

2020 Betting Odds on US Senate Races

Much like the gubernatorial races, the polling on U.S. Senate races is very similar to the odds at the most premium sportsbooks. Where the two races differ is when looking at the polling, since some Senate races have a huge point advantage in the polls while others have a candidate’s lead at less than a point, giving good value to both candidates as a result. In the 2020 Election, 33 Senate seats will be up for grabs, we will post odds when they arrive here.
