2012 Academy Awards Odds:  Look to the More Obscure for Value

When it comes to the 2012 Academy Awards betting odds, WagerWeb.com has one of the most complete wagering menus available.  Here, Gambling911.com takes a look at some of the more obscure odds including “Best Makeup” and “Best Sound Effects”.  You’ll notice quite a few of these categories feature competitive pricing. 

Best Achievement in Art Direction Academy Awards odds had “Hugo” as the -500 favorite, but this is hardly a ‘lock’.  Both “The Artist” at 6/1 odds and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 at 8/1 odds offer terrific value

Best Achievement in Cinematography is another competitive category with the favorite – “The Tree of Life” – listed at -300.  “The Artist” would pay $20 for every $10 bet

Best Achievement in Costume Design is any nominees to win.  The technical favorite is “Hugo” at near even odds.

Best Achievement in Film Editing had “The Artist” at -185 and all other nominees up for grabs with solid value.  But even “Hugo” was a decent value compared to some of the more prominent categories like Best Supporting Actor where Christopher Plummer was around a -4000 favorite at some online gambling sites. 

The Best Makeup payout odds are all better than even. 

Best Achievement in Sound Editing, Mixing and Visual Effects are each offered at a decent price with nominal risk for the favorites.
