With less than three weeks until the election, PaddyPower is already paying their members who bet on Hillary Clinton.

The debate whether Donald Trump still has a chance to win this election has been spewing for the past couple of days. He has shown an innate ability to overcome almost any scandal that he finds himself in, but there’s no denying the allegations of sexual assault over the past two weeks have hurt his chances.

The polls are constantly fluctuating, but most put Hillary Clinton ahead by at least a couple points. Still though, there are many arguing that when it comes down to election day, it will be the passionate Trump fans that flock to the voting booths.

One online sportsbook in the UK certainly doesn’t buy into that, and PaddyPower is so sure that trump will come up short, they are already paying their members who bet on Hillary Clinton to become the next US President.

What are the Trump vs. Clinton Betting Odds?

PaddyPower is giving Hillary Clinton an 85% chance to get the nomination, while Trump has just 18%. Most political analysts believe those odds are not entirely correct, and as we’ve seen time and time again, Trump has been able to narrow the lead Clinton holds.

A bet on Hillary Clinton is likely the best strategy here, and PaddyPower currently lists her odds to win at 2/11. Trump’s odds to win are down to 9/2. The Ballon d’Or odds PaddyPower has provided in the past were accurate, and it seems reasonable to think Trump is such a big underdog heading into election day.
