In the last update (circa 11:30 am ET), Joe Biden’s odds to win the 2020 Presidential Election had improved to -482.
In the interim, the Wisconsin State Journal published a story stating that the “unofficial” election results show Biden winning the state.
Adding Wisconsin to Biden’s side of the ledger takes away one more path to victory from the Trump campaign. The odds have skewed even bluer as a result.

Biden Closing in on 270
The Wisconsin State Journal article was followed up by this tweet, adding credence to the notion that the Badger State is a done deal for the Dems.

With Wisconsin added, Biden will be sitting at 237 Electoral College votes. He would require 33 more to reach the necessary 270.
He still leads in Arizona (11 votes), Nevada (six votes), Michigan (16 votes), which would give him exactly 33 more votes.
He’s also favored to win Pennsylvania (20 votes) in the betting market, roughly a -240 favorite to Trump’s +180 odds. If he takes Pennsylvania, he could lose Nevada and Arizona and still win the election.

The results in Georgia (16 votes) are not final, either. Trump remains the favorite in that state (-280 to +205), but it creates several more realistic paths to victory for Biden.
Oddsmakers and bettors alike are recognizing the reality of the situation: Donald Trump needs multiple less-than-likely outcomes to win.
