Updated Weekly Odds: Sanders Gains Ground on Trump and Clinton; Biden’s Odds Show a Sign of Life

The betting odds have unexpectedly decline for the two top candidates this week, perhaps reflecting the general unhappiness with the two likely candidates.

Hillary Clinton continued to have a big lead, but dropped to 65.6% from 66.7%.  That is her second straight drop and the lowest she has been in four weeks.

One week after winning the Republican nomination, Donald Trump’s odds dropped slightly from last week’s high of 28.2% to 27.1%.  That is still the second highest he has been at.

Bernie Sanders came in at 4.1% from 2.7% after his West Virginia win.  This is the highest he has been in four weeks.

The oddest move in the odds came from Joe Biden.  His odds bumped up from 1.3% to 2.3%.  This is the highest he has been since announcing he will not run in October.  This was based on 18 different oddsmakers.
