According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, Joe Biden is currently ahead of Donald Trump in the odds to be named US election winner.
Currently, he has odds of 1/2 to win the keys to the White House next week, compared to Trump’s odds of 13/8.
However, the betting also suggests that the Republicans could win the states of Texas and Florida – seen as crucial to Trump securing his second term as president.

Trump is also odds-on to win Ohio, while the Democrats are being backed to win Michigan and Arizona – while the heavily contested swing state of Pennsylvania is currently pointing towards a Biden victory with odds of 2/5.
