Latest Next Rio Mayor Odds make Eduardo Paes the odds-on favourite to win ahead of this month's Rio de Janeiro municipal elections.

The 2020 Rio de Janeiro municipal election takes place on November 15th, 2020 as the Brazilian city looks to elect a mayor, a vice mayor, and 51 city councillors.

The incumbent mayor is Marcelo Crivella of the Republicanos, who has expressed intention to run for reelection.

Despite being an incumbent, back in September, the Regional Electoral Court of Rio de Janeiro unanimously ruled Crivella ineligible on the crime of abuse of public power in relation to him using employees of a municipal waste management utility to promote his son’s federal congressional campaign back in 2018.

As a result, Crivella was deemed to be ineligible to run for public office until 2026. However, he obtained a temporary order in the Electoral Court that suspended the sentence, allowing him to be eligible to run again.

The court action appears to have hurt him in the Next Rio de Janeiro Mayor betting, however, with Crivella only third favourite at time of writing. Online sportsbook Betwinner make Paes the big odds-on favourite at 1.21, ahead of Martha Rocha at 3.7. Mr Crivella can currently be backed at 7.8 to be victorious in his reelection bid.
