There are two ways to look at this. If you are looking for the natural odds, or the odds out of the entire population (which would assume the president being elected at random with no selection) would be 11 in 480,000,000 or 1 in 43,000,000.
This, however, is not how presidents are elected. To get 'true odds', you can only count the number of people who are actually going to RUN for president, assuming you are one of them. In each election, an average of 12 people are running for president in the beginning. Therefore, your true odds of becoming president in any one term election is 1 in 12.
