Our favorite sportsbooks are receiving incredibly high action on the 2024 Vegas election odds as bettors look past the 2020 miasma and into the future. Today we’ll break down the betting lines for the top favorite Republican and Democratic candidates.
But first, what’s happening on Capitol Hill?
President Donald Trump over the weekend suggested that President-elect Joe Biden had indeed won the election. The American people know Trump for his aggressive social media strategies, leading to errors and sometimes flagged information. Trump backtracked his comment almost immediately.
Amid the fog, the 2024 Vegas election odds proliferate on the sportsbooks. Most books share a small tag at the bottom of each betting line for political prop bets saying, “All wagers have action. More upon request.” And oh boy, the bettors requested. Here are the DNC and GOP players seeing the highest action.
US Presidential Election 2024 – Democratic Candidate
Kamala Harris +300
Kamala is the most obvious favorite here. She will have the experience and the support of the entire Democratic establishment behind her. That’s given, no fatal missteps from 2020-2024.
Joe Biden +500
Although Joe Biden will undoubtedly run for a second term in 2024, those four years hold a lot in store for the President-elect. At 77 years old, the odds of Biden being able to secure the ticket at 82 seem slim.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez +600
AOC is an exciting choice. She has recently butted heads with senior Democratic members and represents the Democratic party base’s progressive rift. However, candidate’s like AOC enjoy growing support from the youth progressive movement.
Andrew Yang +800
Andrew Yang’s biggest win in 2020 was name recognition. He was a popular candidate, only an unknown one. This time around may be different for Yang.
Beto O’Rourke +1000
While Beto is regarded as a somewhat likable figure or an airhead depending on your political leaning, we consider him a presidential wildcard. He has had significant losses in the past and may not garner the support needed to propel his candidacy.
US Presidential Election 2024 – Republican Candidate
Donald Trump +400
Could we possibly see another Trump campaign in 2024? Donald Trump will face many challenges in these next four years, including multiple lawsuits that await him back in New York. Legal challenges along with old age might mean this is the last time we’ll see Donald in the White House.
However, that’s not to say that we won’t see substantial efforts on behalf of younger members of the Trump family vying for a nepotistic shot at the Oval Office.
Mike Pence +400
Mike Pence had something to prove in the Vice-Presidential debates. His demeanor and ability to talk through many Democratic attacks may make him attractive to the party. He would have VP experience. Pence, however, does not share the fervent support Donald Trump does.
Nikki Haley +500
The UN ambassador under the Trump administration has been rumored to be a 2024 presidential hopeful. Haley remains closely at Trump’s side yet recently has taken a more measured approach to the voter fraud issue, as many other GOP officials have already done.
We expect Haley to make a bid for the presidency, and it may be a strategic move by the GOP to distance itself from the “old, conservative white guy” image they have going on.
John Kasich +800
John Kasich has been in the game for a long time now and previously endorsed Joe Biden and congratulated him on the presidency. Kasich could be a different approach for the GOP, moving toward more of a middle ground to keep the party attractive to younger Republicans.
Josh Hawley +1000
And the GOP could also take a weird step backward (sideways?) propping John Hawley to a presidential nomination. Hawley served as Missouri Attorney General and has been a senator since 2019, the youngest US Senator serving currently.
Hawley holds some pretty conservative ideas on abortion, gay marriage, and even pre-marital sex. We don’t expect his candidacy to gain much traction, but it is 2020, after all, and anything can happen.
