US Election Betting: Joe Biden the favourite to be America's next president

Former-VP Joe Biden
Biden is the favourite to win in November

Former VP is a shoo-in to win the Democratic nomination and the new favourite to win in November with Kamala Harris backed to be his running mate, reports Max Liu.

"Kamala Harris is the frontrunner to be Biden's running mate, with her odds shortening to 3.711/4."

Joe Biden has overtaken Donald Trump to become the favourite to win this year's US Presidential Election.

The former-vice president is 2.226/5 on the Betfair Exchange and has overtaken Donald Trump 2.245/4 for the first time - an extraordinary position for the incumbent, who is facing condemnation for his response to the coronavirus, to find himself in against a candidate who is yet to seal his party's nomination.

Biden looks a shoo-in for nomination ahead of primaries

With primaries set to take place Arizona, Florida, Illinois and Ohio, however, Biden is 1.111/9 to land the Democratic Party nomination ahead of Bernie Sanders 40.039/1, his only rival left in the contest.

The two men took part in a televised debate last night and Biden was widely considered to have won. Indeed, some commentators say Biden's performance in Washington sealed the deal for the nomination.

Biden said he wants a woman to be his running mate and Kamala Harris, a former presidential candidate who clashed with Biden in the early stages of this contest, is the frontrunner, with her odds shortening to 3.711/4.

It's a role Biden should be perfectly placed to pick, as he spend eight years as Barack Obama's VP from 2000 to 2008.

Amy Klobuchar 4.3100/30, who was also in the race for the presidential nomination, is next in the betting, followed by Stacey Abrams 5.14/1.
