2023 Toronto Mayoral By-Election Odds
(Odds Courtesy of FanDuel Ontario Sportsbook as of May 26th, 2023)
Olivia Chow (-400)
After spending eight years as a member of Parliament for the New Democratic Party, Olivia Chow is currently the heavy favourite to become the 66th mayor of Toronto. With longstanding political ties to the city of Toronto dating back to early 90s, Chow is an obvious frontrunner for the position.
With a proven background in the political world with an established track record of successes, as well as a familiarity with the wants and needs of the Toronto area, it’s no wonder why Chow is currently leading the Toronto mayoral election odds.
At -400 odds, while Chow doesn’t come packed with too much juice, she is a safe bet that could net you an easy, stress-free payday if she is able to win the election come June 26th.
Mark Saunders (+750)
Having previously served as the Chief of the Toronto police department, Mark Saunders is looking to make the leap into the political arena and currently holds the second-best odds to become the next mayor of Toronto. With an established connection with the city of Toronto after spending 38-years as a member of the Toronto police force, Saunders sports a personal campaign aimed towards the residents of the area.
Placing a major focus on bringing safety and feelings of peace back to the streets of the city after a recent spike in violence in the downtown core, Saunders believes he is the best candidate to put an end to the rising crime rate.
Still a longshot to emerge as the successful candidate, Saunders will certainly be a name to watch as his personable platform and longtime service to the local community will not go unnoticed by voters come election day.
Ana Bailao (+1100)
A candidate that has spent plenty of time working at Toronto City Hall, former-deputy mayor, Ana Bailao is hoping to have her name called out as the winner of the 2023 Toronto mayoral By-Election. Having spent over a decade as a member of the Toronto City Council, look for Bailao to be a serious candidate in the upcoming mayoral election.
Aiming to make a plethora of changes around the city, Bailao is determined to bring change to Toronto. From affordable housing, to cellphone service on the TTC, Bailao hopes to bring forth major improvements across the board if elected as the next mayor of Toronto.
While she’s certainly a candidate to watch, she still doesn’t have the faith of oddsmakers, sitting at a unfavourable +1100 odds, making her a complete longshot to win the 2023 Toronto mayoral election.
