Trump Presidential Odds Switch Into Reverse Gear

Donald Trump's Presidential odds have been sharply lengthened by bookmakers William Hill, from 3/1 (stake 1 for profit of 3; 25% chance) to 5/1 (stake 1 for profit of 5; 16%) after his Wisconsin setback.

Now William Hill, who had been offering a Clinton-Trump final showdown for the Presidency at odds of just 1/3 (stake 3 for profit of 1; 75% chance) have now lengthened those odds out to 5/4 (stake 4 for profit of 5; 45%).

Donald Trump's Presidential odds have almost doubled, from 3/1 to 5/1 after his Wisconsin setback.

'The wins for Sanders and Cruz have shaken up the betting markets and although Clinton and Trump are still very much the front-runners they are no longer being regarded as absolute certainties to be the final two in the race' said William Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
