It looks set to be Biden v Trump II in November's US presidential election

Donald Trump is the favourite to win a second term as US president after he and Joe Biden both sealed the nominations to be their parties' candidates in November's election...

  • Trump around evens to win US election

  • Biden has shortened from 2/13.00 to win second term

  • 2024 broke Betfair records and 2024 could be even bigger

  • Donald Trump is the favourite on the Betfair Exchange to win November's US election after he and Joe Biden sealed the Republican and Democratic Party nominations respectively.

    The former-president is 2.111/10 to make a sensational return to the White House when he takes on Biden 2.8415/8 in a rematch of the 2020 election.

    The 2024 election will be unique in that both men are seeking four more years as president.

    Both men won primary elections in Georgia, Mississippi and Washington state on Tuesday to confirm that, barring an extraordinary turn of events, it will be Biden v Trump again this year.

    It looks set to be close with Trump in pole position but Biden has been shortening since Super Tuesday on Betfair.

    It's Biden v Trump II despite doubts about both

    Four years ago, Biden beat Trump and consigned the Republican to the list of one-term presidents. Or so it seemed at the time. Now America's 45th president is out to do the same to its 46th.

    There are doubts about both men's suitabliity to be the leader of the free world from January 2025 onwards.

    Trump is facing criminal indictments, some of which concern the alleged attempt to overturn the result of the last election and inciting rioters to storm the Capitol on 6 January 2021.

    Meanwhile, Biden's age is off-putting for some voters. He is 81 and, when he took office, looked likely not to seek a second term. It was expected that another candidate, such as vice president Kamala Harris, would run for the Democrats in 2024.

    But it seems that Biden likes life at the White House and has no intention of ending his stay there early. Trump has other ideas and wants to get back to Washington. Kristi Noem 5.39/2 is the current favourite to be his vice presidential candidate running mate.

    US Election 2024 will be huge betting event

    The odds indicate the outcome of the November 5 election will be close. The last US election broke records on Betfair and this year's looks set to be an enormous betting event again.

    So far, £12.5m has been wagered on the Betfair Exchange election winner market and 44% of that has been for Trump. But Biden has been the bigger mover in the market recently and he's closing the gap.

    There will be many twists between now and election day so keep reading Betting.Betfair for the latest US election 2024 betting news.
