In this year’s presidential race, where there is no sure thing, a Las Vegas oddsmaker is taking a shot at predicting the Democratic and Republican nominees.

Jimmy Vaccaro says Donald Trump has the best chance to win the Republican nomination, at 2-1 odds. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz follow him with 3-1 odds. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, once thought to be a likely front-runner, faces 50-1 odds, according Vaccaro.

Among the Democrats, Hillary Clinton is the best bet at 1-25 odds. Her rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has a long shot 50-1 chance at winning the party nomination, Vaccaro said.
