TAGs: betway, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Jasmine Solana, Paddy Power, presidential elections, William Hill

Frontrunners Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton extended their leads after dominating Super Tuesday, one of the biggest days of the 2016 presidential race in the United States so far.

US Presidential Odds after Super TuesdayTrump racked up several wins overnight, routing Marco Rubio in Florida while also running up the score in both Illinois and North Carolina before ending his eventful Super Tuesday 2 with a duke out against Ted Cruz in Missouri.

Thanks to his wins in a number of key states, Trump is one step closer to claiming the Republican nomination, but odds are shortening on him stepping a foot in the White House.

Following the overnight results, Trump is now 5/2 to win the U.S. presidency, with Paddy Power.

William Hill also offered 5/2 odds for the Republican candidate. With Betway, Trump’s odds to become the next president of the United States went from as long as 150/1 in the past to just 11/4 now.

Cruz, on the other hand, has a 25/1 odds with both Paddy Power and William Hill.

Kasich took Ohio—his first win in the campaign—which, to be honest, won’t really help his odds of becoming the Republican nominee that much. Kasich has a 20/1 odds with Paddy Power, and 18/1 with William Hill.

Rubio, who was once called the “future of the Republican Party,” announced on Tuesday in Miami that he’s shutting down his presidential campaign, saying he has misjudged the electorate.

On the Democratic side, Clinton emerged as the big winner Tuesday night after defeating rival Bernie Sanders in Florida, Ohio and North Carolina. Clinton’s victory in Ohio was especially important for the Democrat candidate following her loss in Michigan last week.

Clinton now has a 4/9 odds to win the U.S. presidential elections, with Paddy Power, while William Hill offered 2/5 odds for the former first lady—also former secretary of state and former senator—of the United States.

Bernie Sanders, on the other hand, has a 22/1 odds with Paddy Power, and 20/1 odds with William Hill.
