2020 US Election Betting TipsMany pundits have written off Trump's chances, even though he upset the odds to win four years ago. The latest US election odds make Joe Biden clear favourite to win but Donald Trump is still getting more bets on online bookmakers.
Two states will be crucial to decide who will win - Florida and Texas.
Florida has been the closest state in any US election. In 2012, Barack Obama edging out Mitt Romney 50.0% to 49.1% there. In 2016, it was almost as close, with Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton by 1.2%.
At all but one of the last 14 US elections, Florida has voted with the winner.
As for Texas, Trump won there by nine points in 2016 and the state has been Republican at presidential elections since 1980. Anyway, this time Biden may be able to pull off a rare win for his party in Texas.
