Nebraska’s 2020 general election will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, and it will consist of one Senate seat race, three US House seat races, several state seat races, and the yugely anticipated 2020 Presidential election. Of course, the state will also hold its 2020 Presidential primaries for both parties on Tuesday, May 12, 2020.
If you want to bet on all these elections, you can! Legal online election betting sites have odds on the major races, and as the NE primaries approach, they’ll post odds for how each candidate performs at the state level, too.
Note: Nebraska’s state legislature is totally unique among all other US states in that it is unicameral, meaning that it has only one chamber: the Nebraska Senate. There is no state-level House of Representatives, which is why you will never see any Nebraska House of Representatives odds at any offshore sportsbooks.

In 2016, Donald Trump painted Nebraska red(der) with his big win in the state’s Republican caucuses. Trump took home 58% of the vote and marked his name as “the” Republican candidate. Despite NE converting to the primary election system for 2020, Trump is nevertheless primed to repeat, as he has a commanding lead atop the GOP odds boards and maintains a high level of popularity among Nebraska voters.
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders took in the most votes at the 2016 Democratic caucuses. Of course, only Bernie is back in 2020 (at least right now), though he is unlikely to capture lightning in a bottle this time around. Instead, front-runner Elizabeth Warren seems to have all the momentum per the Democrat betting odds, while newcomer Andrew Yang continues to jockey among the leaders.
That said, because the state is now using a primary election model instead of its traditional caucus model, perhaps Sanders can turn his campaign around in time to husk some corn after all.
The 2020 Presidential primary in NE is held somewhat late in the season (May 12), which means that the presumptive DNC nominee is likely to emerge before then. As a result, if you want to bet on one of the Democratic candidates, you should probably do so sooner rather than later in order to get the best odds. Of course, with the media frenzy around this election cycle and the endless Trump impeachment betting dominating the circuit, it seems like anything can happen at any time!

Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton in Nebraska’s 2016 Presidential election by over 25 points, earning 58.75% of the vote to Clinton’s 33.70%. Nebraska is considered to be a strongly Republican state, and it’s unlikely that any Democratic candidate will win appreciably more than the two counties Clinton took in the last election.
