New York Gubernatorial Odds Explained
Hochul, who took over after the resignation of Cuomo last August, remains a prohibitive -1400 favorite with England-based Ladbrokes to remain in the position, despite having to recently replace her Lieutenant Governor. Antonio Delgado replaced Brian Benjamin, who was arrested on corruption charges.
Among the more interesting names that had been listed as Democratic longshots before the primary were former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, state Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, “Sex in the City” actress and activist Cynthia Nixon, former Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, and former vice president and ex-New York senator Hillary Clinton.
NewYorkBets.com will update this page when news and change of odds warrant. Ladbrokes has posted odds on the winning party rather than by candidate. The Republicans are listed as a +700 underdog after Zeldin, who represents New York's 1st Congressional District, won that party's primary.
