Oddsmakers Predict Which U.S. Cities are Most Likely to Have White Christmas

–Odds Say Minneapolis, Buffalo, Rochester Among Most Likely to See Snow on Christmas–

The odds of Minneapolis having snow on the ground on Christmas Day are 4/11 (73.3% implied probability), according to betting aggregators US-Bookies.com (See Disclaimer Below). Among major U.S. cities, Buffalo and Rochester follow at 3/4 (57.1%) and 4/5 (55.6%), respectively.

“Bookies are following the yearly tradition of examining certain cities’ odds to have a White Christmas, with Minneapolis being the top pick among some major U.S. cities,” says a US-Bookies spokesperson. “Naturally, some of the more snow-prone areas are odds-on to have snow on the ground on Christmas Day, while cities like Los Angeles and Dallas are well into the longshot category.”

Milwaukee follows Rochester with 11/10 odds to have a White Christmas (47.6% implied probability). Cleveland and Denver are close behind with odds of 5/4 (44.4%) and 29/20 (40.8%), respectively. Detroit then trails Denver at 8/5 to have snow on the ground on Christmas Day (38.5%). 

Though New Yorkers are no strangers to snowfall, odssmakers aren’t confident in a White Christmas for the City That Never Sleeps this year. New York has better odds than Philadelphia and D.C. to have snow on the ground on Christmas Day, but Boston and Chicago have stronger odds.
