Ohio Governor John Kasich, still in the race as of Tuesday night, was coming in as the 11-4 favorite.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who Trump mentioned as a possible running mate in Tuesday night’s victory speech, was listed at 4-1 odds.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was coming in at 10-1 odds as was Florida Senator Marco Rubio. 

Oddsmakers had Trump as a -1000 or greater lock in all five of Tuesday’s Primaries though his margin of victory in most of these states took many by surprise, including, it appeared, Trump himself.

He received 55 percent to 60 percent of the vote in some states, after months of winning many primaries with less than a majority.

Trump proclaimed himself the presumptive nominee late Tuesday in a speech at Trump Tower in New York.

“When the boxer knocks out the other boxer, you don’t have to wait around for a decision,” he said boastfully at an election-night appearance before supporters at Trump Tower in New York.

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton nearly swept all five states as well in her party’s primaries with the lone exception of Rhode Island, won by opponent Bernie Sanders.
