Joe Biden’s odds have dipped marginally on Bovada, as he had been recorded at +450 entering the debates and currently sits in +425. Oddsmakers are likely waiting on polling to find out whether the former vice president’s operation will have any effect on his support, because Biden has maintained a healthy lead in the polls despite many of campaign controversies to this point.
Bernie Sanders appeared to tumble the most after the first debate, as he was leapfrogged by Harris, Warren and Buttigieg on Bovada after the first argument.
