Our Head of Trump Betting – yep, that’s a real title – has slashed the odds on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg winning the 2020 US Presidential Election, boosting his chances from 25/1 to 16/1.
In doing so, he’s leapfrogged Hillary Clinton in the betting, who’s gone in the opposite direction – her odds swelling from 25/1 to 50/1.

Donald Trump, despite all the controversy around him, remains the clear favourite – his odds lengthening slightly from 9/4 to 2/1.
Vice President Mike Pence is second in the betting (15/2), alongside Senior Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Michelle Obama (14/1) and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (16/1) are also leading contenders.
Joe Lee, Head of Trump Betting at Paddy Power, said: “What a list of contenders for the next US President – it’s like a Big Brother producer’s dream.
“For Zuckerberg, he’s emerging as a potential candidate, alongside Dwayne Johnson and current incumbent Donald Trump. Which means the US voters are caught somewhere between The Rock and a hard face.”
