Trump Has 20% Chance of Winning Presidency, Matchbook Odds Show

Donald Trump has a one-in-five chance of winning the U.S. presidential race, odds on betting exchange Matchbook suggest.

Trump’s prospects of becoming President have risen from 12 percent 10 days ago, after 110,000 pounds ($157,400) was bet on the billionaire, Matchbook said on Thursday in London. Matchbook customers are mostly based in the U.K.

Traditional bookmakers give Trump a better chance. Paddy Power Plc, for example, offers odds of 3-1, or 25 percent, on a Trump victory. Hillary Clinton is 10-11 to win, giving her a 48 percent chance of victory.
