Beto was ahead of early favorites Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren, as well as former Vice President Joe Biden.

“With the amount of publicity the Texas race received, as well as the media's affection with O'Rourke, there's been a steady stream of bets on Beto in 2020,” Brent Corobotuic, head linesman at BetDSI, told the Wasington Examiner Tuesday.

“Earlier this year, his odds were as high as 50/1 to represent the Democrats,” he added.

O'Rourke last week lost his bid to become the first Texas Democratic Senator in decades.  Many in his party have been urging Beto to run in 2020.

BetDSI said that before last Tuesday’s election, California Senator Kamala Harris was the favorite to win the nominee with 5/1 odds (+500).

“But after an influx of wagers on O'Rourke since Wednesday, the oddsmakers were forced to make an adjustment. Harris remains a close second on the odds board while Elizabeth Warren is the third candidate with better than 10/1 odds,” said the site.
