Minnesota is a peculiar state politically, and it always seems like it’s up for grabs in any major election. As such, the 2020 election odds rely heavily on MN voter turnout and which way public sentiment sways for Democrats and Republicans by the time the general elections roll around. The MN primaries were held on Super Tuesday, March 3, 2020, and the general election takes place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
The MN primaries may be over, but there are a number of political odds and lines to choose from at most offshore betting sites. When the general election gets closer on the calendar, you can expect several sites to offer specific Minnesota odds for those races, too.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton edged out Donald Trump, 46.08% to 44.57%. With such a close margin and a generally split state politically, MN promises to be a contested battleground in the 2020 general election. That means Minnesota could be a meaningful swing state, and both parties’ campaigns are likely to make stops there.
Bernie Sanders won the 2016 Democratic Caucus in Minnesota with 61% of the vote. However, Bernie’s 2020 campaign doesn’t have the steam that it did the last time around in the state, and he’s currently trending second on the Democratic betting odds nationally. Biden defeated Sanders soundly in the MN primary.
In 2016, Marco Rubio won the MN GOP Caucus with 36% of the vote. However, Donald Trump appealed to Minnesota farmers during his 2016 Presidential campaign, and he will certainly visit the state during the 2020 campaign trail. Trump is the favorite to win the GOP party nomination, and he easily won the Minnesota Republican primary, scoring all 39 state delegates.
Betting on the Presidential primary is legal in 48 of 50 states with the use of licensed offshore sportsbooks (with Washington and Connecticut having laws in place barring online gambling, though they appear to be unenforced, so you can wager at your own risk). In recent years, US political betting has come into its own and is often a driving force for many oddsmakers. The 2020 election promises to be the most wagered-on US election in history.
