2020 Louisiana Primary And General Election Odds

Louisiana Primary And General Election 2020 Odds

The Louisiana general election will be held November 3, 2020. However, unlike most states, the local and state government elections in Louisiana are actually going to be held on November 16, 2019. While there are unlikely to be too many odds posted for those 2019 elections, the LA governorship is being contested, and that should attract lots of gubernatorial betting odds to choose from.

Aside from those forthcoming lines, you can already wager on the national DNC and GOP primaries, as well as the results of the 2020 Presidential election. Louisiana primaries will be held on Saturday, April 4, 2020, and offshore sportsbooks have plenty of political betting lines posted.

2019 Louisiana Gubernatorial Election Odds

Louisiana holds its state congressional and governorship elections in odd-numbered years before Presidential election years. In 2019, LA will host its elections on Saturday, November 16. The race will be contested between only two candidates:

  • Governor John Bel Edwards (D, incumbent)
  • Eddie Rispone (R)

With odds not yet posted, the most recent polling data can be informative to potential bettors once sportsbooks decide to go live with their lines. The numbers, so far, slightly favor Edwards to retain his post, though businessman Eddie Rispone is polling just 2-3 points behind him.

2020 Louisiana Republican Primary

It is still too early for state-specific odds for the Republican primary in LA, though it seems like a sure bet that President Donald Trump will be the GOP candidate. In 2016, Trump won the Louisiana Republican primary with 41.4% of the vote, and the state is a traditional red stronghold. Republican primary betting odds are currently available online, and bettors clearly don’t think Trump has any viable challengers as of right now.

2020 Louisiana Democrat Primary

Right now, the field of Democratic nominees is over a dozen deep, and it’s too early for state-specific Louisiana betting odds. However, since the DNC primary in LA takes place in April, a major front-runner should be established by then, which means you’ll likely see Louisiana-centric Democratic primary odds at offshore books.  In the 2016 LA Democratic primary, Hillary Clinton took 71% of the vote, which bodes well for current favorite Elizabeth Warren.

Betting on the 2020 Louisiana Presidential Primary

Most of the top-rated election sportsbooks have 2020 future Presidential election odds available right now. You can wager on primary candidates, debate performances, hot-button issues, and more. And of course, you can also bet on Donald Trump impeachment odds, which are extremely popular at the moment. That said, if you want Louisiana primary election odds, you’ll likely have to wait until Q1 2020 for those.

How Did LA Vote In The 2016 Presidential Election?

In the 2016 Presidential election, Donald Trump easily defeated Hillary Clinton by a vote of 58.09% to 38.45%. However, the state currently has a Democratic governor, and if the incumbent wins re-election, that could be a harbinger of potential GOP difficulties in the state down the line. (The LA gubernatorial primary will be held on October 12, 2019.)
