"It looks like the betting market is going a little cold on Biden despite his general lead in the polls," Matthew Shaddick, Ladbrokes's head of political betting, told Newsweek. "Warren seemed to get a boost after the last set of debates and, in particular, seems to be performing well in Iowa."

Biden has consistently been the front-runner in most major Democratic primary polls. Warren's campaign, however, has seen increased momentum in recent months. Warren, Harris and Sanders typically poll near the top of the field of nearly two dozen candidates.
