Democrats Favored For Election Sweep: Can They Pull It Off?

  • Joe Biden is listed at -200 odds to defeat Donald Trump (+175) in the 2020 US Presidential Election.
  • BetOnline has a Democratic Election Sweep listed with -155 odds.
  • The Democratic Party is heavily favored to remain in control of the House of Representatives with -2000 odds.

WASHINGTON D.C. — The 2020 US Presidential Election is just a week away as President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden hit the home stretch of the campaign season.

There has been no shortage of drama leading up to Election Day as the Republicans have taken a majority lead in the US Supreme Court with the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett.

The Supreme Court appointment hasn’t had any effect on the US Presidential betting odds yet as Biden is still favored to win the 2020 US Presidential Election.

Odds to Win 2020 US Presidential Election

  • (D) Joe Biden -200
  • (R) Donald Trump +175

Biden has kept a steady lead over Trump for the past month and a half at online sportsbooks and with time dwindling between now and November 3rd, Trump is likely settled in as the underdog in this election.

As for the Republican Party, they are in danger of being swept in the 2020 Election and that’s something political bettors should keep an eye on. A sweep of the Election meaning the Democrats win the Presidential Election, keep control of the House of Representatives while winning back the Senate for the first time since 2015.

BetOnline has listed odds on which party will win the House and Senate on Election Day.

House Seats Won by Democrats

  • Over 209.5 Seats -2000
  • Under 209.5 +900

BetOnline has the Democrats favored big in the to remain in control of the House of Representatives with -2000 which is no surprise since that correlates to the Democrats being favored to win the popular vote. Furthermore, the Democrats took over the House during the midterm elections which is always a good temperature check for what could possibly happen during the Presidential Elections.

The Democrats will keep the majority in the House and all eyes will be on Senate races to see if they can flip more seats to complete the sweep.

Claiming the majority in the Senate will be much harder than keeping the House for the Democrats. In the last midterm election, the Republicans actually gained seats in the Senate which is why they were able to push through the confirmation of Barrett before Election Day.

The 115th (2017-2019) Congress was a 51-47 split with a Republican majority. The 116th Congress (2019-2021) saw the Republicans grow the majority by two seats to make it a 53-45 margin.

Majority Control of the US Senate

  • Democratic Party -165
  • Republican Party +125

Although the Republicans extended their majority of the Senate in the last election, sportsbooks don’t favor them to do so again with +125 odds.

The -165 odds on the Democratic Party to take over the Senate will be close. The Senate is the biggest obstacle in completing the sweep for the Democrats. Confirming Justice Barrett could potentially be the last thing this Republican-led Senate did and it could cost them at the polls.

Democratic Party Election Sweep

  • Yes -155
  • No +125

The Democrats being favored to get the Election sweep is logical and online sportsbooks do support this notion although bettors should be cautious of the Republicans keeping control of the Senate, that still isn’t enough to fade the -155 odds on “Yes”.

The reward does outweigh the risk and BetOnline does have the Democrats favored to winch House, Senate, and Presidential Elections. Bettors should feel comfortable betting on a Democratic sweep a week from now.
