LAS VEGAS – With so many states entering their legislative sessions right now, political betting is once again on the forefront of many sports betting fans minds.

Republican Party Favored To Win Midterms

Betting odds are constantly changing, so getting a head-start on something like future elections can sometimes be a smart move; with the US midterm elections less than a year away, now is a great time to start paying attention to the odds.

Bookmakers over at Bovada are offering odds on who will control both the House of Representatives and the Senate once the election is over. Right now, the Republican party is being pretty heavily favored overall.

The Senate

According to an analysis by FiveThirtyEight,  the Republican party is already in the lead, and may widen the gap as we approach the midterms.

“Currently, Republicans lead generic-ballot polls by an average of 0.5 points. And although there’s still time for that to change before Election Day, generic-ballot polling has historically tended to get worse for the president’s party as the cycle wears on.”
