BettingPro has recently reported that national polls have shown a healthy lead for the Democratic candidate, with The Donald’s campaign running into scandal after scandal.
Betting giants Paddy Power believe it’s a done deal and that Hillary is an absolute certainty to occupy the Oval Office, so much so that they're willing to put their neck on the line up to the value of $1 million.

Trump has seen his initial odds of 100/1 plummet to just 13/8, whereas Paddy Power believe Hillary's odds of victory are at an impressive 86%.
Prior to paying out, the former First Lady’s odds fell to a low 2/11 (85.7% chance of winning) and over the past week Paddy Power have seen a flood of money on Clinton.
Féilim Mac An Iomaire, marketing team member for Paddy Power, told Bettingpro:
Trump gave it a hell of a shot going from a rank outsider to the Republican candidate but the recent flood of revelations have halted his momentum and his chances now look as patchy as his tan.
Recent betting trends have shown one way traffic for Hillary and punters seemed to have called it 100% correct. Despite Trump’s Make America Great Again message appealing to many disillusioned voters, it looks as though America are going to put a woman in the White House.
Should Trump come out triumphant, it will trigger the biggest political payout in bookmaking history, leaving Paddy Power feeling a little worse for wear.
The betting site will continue to offer betting right up to and including Election Day.
