With all the talk about the mega box office hit Avatar these past few weeks, some Gambling911.com readers might want to actually place an early bet on Avatar winning an Oscar in 2010.  They can do so at BetUS.com online.

"This isn't your typical Oscar winning film nor is it the favorite," remarked Payton O'Brien, Senior Editor of the Gambling911.com website.  "But neither was The Dark Knight, a film that landed Heath Ledger a posthumous Oscar last year."

Avatar would pay out $300 for every $100 bet with an Oscar win.  Gamblers can place bets as low as $10 to win $30.

Avatar is already defying skeptics by inching ever so close to making a profit.  The film's budget was a whopping $280 million with an additional $150 million spent on marketing. Its final worldwide opening weekend total is $242.5 million.  Positive "word of mouth" should give the film extended life in theatres. 

BetUS.com offers an incredible selection of betting events and propositions mostly catering to the recreational sports bettor.  Get a 20% signup bonus with deposits of $100 to $299, 25% bonus when you open with $300 to $499.  Qualified customers opening with $500 or more can receive up to 60% in FREE PLAY BONUSES.  Mention bonus code GAMBLING911.  The industry leader since 1994.
