    2020 Election. The State by State Odds and MATH

    I know we've all heard this before but if Trump doesn't win both Florida and Pennsylvania his chances of winning the election are slim to none.

    I took a look at 5Dimes state by state(and DC) odds and I narrowed down the 10 states that are the closest according to the current odds. Of the 41 states with odds of -350 or more Trump is winning 21 of them for 164 delegates. Dem's are winning 20 states for 229 delegates. There are 145 delegates remaining in the 10 closest contested states.

    Trump needs 106 of the remaining 145 delegates and Dems need 41. Below are the 10 states that are the most closely contested and their number of delegates.

    States Trump is favored:
    Georgia -190 16
    Iowa -210 6
    North Carolina -130 15
    Ohio -170 18

    States Dems are favored:
    Arizona -160 11
    Florida -140 29
    Michigan -295 16
    New Hampshire -270 4
    Pennsylvania -265 20
    Wisconsin -215 10

    If the -350's or higher hold up, then Trump needs to win at least 6 of the closest contested states to have any chance at all. There might be a couple -350's or higher that flip but I doubt there will be many. If 5Dimes is wrong on any of the -350's or higher... which states do you think that they are wrong about? If they are not wrong... which of the 10 states above do you think Trump wins?

    I just realized that it wouldn't be entirely unheard of for there to a be a 269 vote tie.

    If Trump wins all the states where he's favored by -350 or more and the Dems also win all the states where they are favored by -350 or more... AND Trump wins the states below:

    Georgia -190 16
    Iowa -210 6
    North Carolina -130 15
    Ohio -170 18
    Arizona +120 11
    Florida + 100 29
    Wisconsin +165 10

    And Dems Win:
    Michigan -295 16
    New Hampshire -270 4
    Pennsylvania -265 20

    Then it would be a 269 tie. With everything that has gone on this year a 269 tie wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Donít forget Nebraska and Maine r split delegate states. There was a scenario where I had 269 each. I think it was trump winning all the tossups except pa and wi. I said in other thread think he gets fla az and will come down to pa wi mi and nc. Doubt any off the list flip barring some kind of world war or civil war

    It's REALLY sad when you have to hope your Presidential candidate running for office doesn't have to speak..

    That is all I have to say about that..



    Keeping it real!!!

    It's sadder when you hope your president doesn't speak. The whole world is still laughing at injecting disinfectant as a COVID cure!
    Check out international news channels or newspapers. The US Prez is a worldwide laughing stock.
    They still do bits on...it will go away in the spring, like a miracle! They are quite funny.

    This isnt 2016. Trump has to run on his record now and that record is dogshit. He canít rely on stupid nicknames, james comey, Hillary emails. This thing is over. Trump is finished and off to jail he goes.

    Correct. The non-politician is now a politician, and his swamp stinks just as bad. And I'm a Republican.

    The only way Dems lose the WH & the Senate is if Biden actually has to speak or debate.

    Trump is finished.

    Party better off w Pence/ Haley

    Personally, I think this election will be very close. Trump is deeply unpopular, but the pandemic has drastically slowed new voter registration and could crush turnout in November. Low turnout elections generally help Republicans so that could counteract Trump's unpopularity.

    Even though Democrats are slight favorites in most swing states, the results are fairly coordinated. In 2016 Clinton's popularity took a huge hit when James Comey announced the FBI was reopening the email case days before the election. This caused her to simultaneously nosedive in several states where she was favored. If a similar scandal or event effected either Trump or Biden before the election all the swing states could flip to one candidate or the other.

    Just my opinion...

    Just a reminder:

    Democrats will stand in line for hours to vote no matter the elements, example, the latest elections in Wis and Ga. If polls don't move much between now and Nov., older Republicans will stay home.

    This isn't polls. This is 5Dimes. There are only 1 of 2 things possible here.

    #1 The 5Dimes prices below are WAY OFF which would mean that there are FANTASTIC betting opportunities below for Trump supporters.

    #2. 5Dimes is right and Trump will likely lose the election.

    It has to be one or the other. Which is it? My gut tells me that Trump supporters think that it's #1. So... which of the prices below are "WAY OFF"?

    If Trump wins all the states where he's favored by -350 or more and the Dems also win all the states where they are favored by -350 or more... AND Trump wins the states below:

    Georgia -190 16
    Iowa -210 6
    North Carolina -130 15
    Ohio -170 18
    Arizona +120 11
    Florida + 100 29
    Wisconsin +165 10

    And Dems Win:
    Michigan -295 16
    New Hampshire -270 4
    Pennsylvania -265 20

    Then it would be a 269 tie. With everything that has gone on this year a 269 tie wouldn't surprise me at all.
    Trump winning Arizona? That's delusional.

    It's possible that you could be right but I think it's foolish to just ASSUME that the Books will be way off because of what happened last time.

    Let's consider this... on any given Saturday or Sunday during football season the Books are going to get AT LEAST one game wrong and a big underdog wins. Because of this... should we just assume that they will always be wrong in every single game?

    When you consider how good a sportsbook is it's probably a good idea to consider how they do as a whole... not just one event. Trump was a complete novelty back in 2016. This is why the Books were way off back then. Novelty's are a Books weakness most of the time. Trump is no longer a novelty. I would be very surprised if any of the major Books didn't consider what happened last time when they are setting their lines.

    But let's just assume that I am wrong and the Books are most definitely underestimating Trump like all of his followers are suggesting. This means that there is GREAT VALUE on Trump at +150. If Trump is a "guaranteed lock" like most of his followers on here suggest... then there should be a 500 page thread about his +150 price. But there is not. My question for you is... if +150 for Trump is such a great value then why aren't his supporters going nuts over this price?

    Could it be... because deep down they suspect that the line is sharp?
